Kitson Kids, a store brand that caters to celebrities, opened its first Orange County store at Downtown Disney over the weekend.
The store is the child-product version of Kitson, where starlets are often spotted shopping in Los Angeles. The Downtown Disney store isn’t shy about touting the celebrity appeal by hanging photos of its frequent shoppers toting Kitson bags — Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Ashley Tisdale and others. The Web site even says “home of celebrity shopping.”
Kitson Kids took over the former Starbilla store, which sold autographed pictures and other celebrity collectibles before it closed down.
The store, which opened Saturday, carries an array of children’s stuff from puzzles and finger puppets to trendy T-shirts and Snow White-style dresses.
I looked around to see if there was anything affordable for my 1-year-old son. Some of the items were in the acceptable range, including a board book for $9.95 and a Little Uglys doll for $11.95. Some practical baby sunblock was available for tourists. But there were some outrageous items, especially the Size 2 True Religion jeans for $150. That’s Size 2 as in toddler, not adult.
