Piccolo is a one-of-a-kind children’s boutique offering a variety of styles and unique merchandise. Clothing in sizes newborn-16 are available for girls, and through size 14 for boys. 

On 290 County Road in Barrington, Piccolo occupies the space next to Feminine Fancies in a shared plaza. Owner Robin Silva opened Piccolo in the former Teddy Bearskins spot. “People are still surprised to find a children’s store here since their closing, even though it’s been over two years,” she says.

One of the things that makes Piccolo so unique is their customer service. The only full-service children’s clothing and shoe store in the area, kids can get their feet measured to the correct fit and then choose from a variety of footwear – including brands recommended by pediatricians. A play corner offers a spot for restless kiddies to spend time while their parents shop. More than just  clothing, they also carry accessories and toys like puzzles and stuffed animals. Piccolo is known for stocking everything from casual to special event attire and is currently making room for bathing suits. There’s also layaway and complimentary gift wrap. A true one-stop shop.
