3 Baby Stores in Cambridge, MA for All of Your Must-Have & Really-Want Baby Products

Magpie Kids

All toys they carry are developmentally appropriate for your kids. Order online from the convenience of your home and pick up locally in their store or have the items shipped directly to you.

Magic Beans

Magic Beans is a fantastic baby gear and toy store and has two locations, one in Wellesley and one in Huron Village in Cambridge. When our son was first born we were at this store nearly constantly; I loved how comprehensive their stock was and also how knowledgeable their staff were on every line they carried (especially useful in that new baby phase, when you are beyond exhausted and needing to make new product decisions seemingly 10x a week). We got our high chair, car seat, books, toys, sleep sacks, and two strollers from Magic Beans. They actually had “test” versions of all their strollers so that you could try one out around your home; how genius is that?!
