Polarn O. Pyret

Sweden’s largest children’s apparel retailer is right at home in the Twin Cities. The brand—pronounced POH-lahrn oh PEE-rhet, which is Swedish for “Buddy and the Little Guy”—is all about quality basics, performance outerwear (sold year-round), and bright colors, with sizes for infants through age 12. The practical but modern vibe is our vibe. There’s a play area to keep the kids busy while you shop.
