Love Child

Shop Owens & Co.'s brand-new keiki section

Lei Chic

Toy crazes. You. Never really got along.

1996: Tickle Me Elmo failed to tickle your fancy.
1998: Furby, a wide-eyed owl monstrosity, gave you nightmares fur years.
2009: Tiny squeaking hamster robots? Just bad Zhu Zhu.

This year, you've finally got something to go crazy for. Behold, Owens & Co.'s brand-new keiki section, a bright, colorful display filled with unique children's toys, accessories and must-haves from local and mainland designers.

Pop in and peruse thoughtfully chosen items, like a vividly-illustrated Around the World with Mouk sticker book, a Paper Doll Parade notecard set, handmade floral oilcloth pencil cases by Lucy Blair and adorable, locally-made Punky Pals bunny dolls.

Take a closer look at some of the shop's fun finds below - any of which would make a great baby shower or Christmas gift.

As if you need an excuse to go play in the corner.

Owens & Co., 1152 Nuuanu Ave., (808) 531-4300.
