Best Baby Goods Store

Twin Cities Green

It's a sad truth that even in this day and age products intended to be used by infants and children are not always completely safe. Plastic baby bottles in particular—even from well-respected companies like Gerber and Evenflo—are known to leach a dangerous toxin called bisphenol A. New parents are busy enough without having to research every product they bring into their homes. To save Minnesotans the trouble, Ryan and Tina North, co-owners of the new Twin Cities Green store, have done the work for us, and they stock only products known to be safe. The store has an impressive baby and children's area stocked with cribs, mattresses, sheets, organic cotton diapers, glass bottles, natural latex pacifiers, and a collection of super-cute booties and onesies. What's more, the store makes shopping easy by providing a gift registry service for expecting moms and dads.
