Stylish Norwegians need somewhere to outfit their spawn, and this kids' shop in trendy Grünerløkka is the most popular stroller stop. Owner Ida Lill Torbjørnrød is herself a child of the '70s and chooses lines based on their nostalgic appeal. That means lots of adorable terry cloth and corduroy jumpsuits, and onesies with bold retro prints. There are even '70s-inspired pacifiers, though there's no saying whether they work any better at soothing a crying baby (they certainly look cool attempting the task). Swedish kids clothing designer Villervalla makes urban-cool denim jumpsuits for kids, suitable for playing in the snow. And for a unique baby gift from abroad, consider one of the handmade quilts. Other interesting European brands to shop for here include Denmark's Smafolk and Norwegian label Dundelina, a Bergen brand that designs super-girlie dresses.—Terry Ward
