Baboo Kids Design
Via Arnolfo 23R
A place by the unusual combination, furniture and clothing, but with a common thread: high quality craftsmanship for your kids also very tiny. The idea is of two sisters, architect the first one, costume designer the second one. In addition to their creations, made of natural materials and organic fabrics you will find in this store-lab international brand products for wooden toys and small accessories. Montessori method inspired furnishings while ecosustainable clothing is inspired by the works of the old times Grandmothers.

In this little shop you can go fishing in the historic center. You will find many small and large objects for the home but the real stars are the fishes. Real pieces of craft art made from old wooden boards painted. Our favorites are the sardines!
