About Us

The Kid's Store

The Kid's Store is a children's concept store located at 324 Maunganui Road, Mt Maunganui.   The Kid's Store was formed in 2016 following a merge of two brands within the kid's retail space Cherish Child & The Boy's Store.

It's our vision to bring you quality, every day fashion for the little people in your life.  As parents, we know how hard kids are on clothing and other possessions, so quality and the ability to stand the test of time is essential for any product that you find in our store!

Here’s a few fun facts about the team behind the dream

Andrea is a mama of 2 (Mackay & Mia), and is the main face behind The Kid's Store. When Mackay was born, she quickly realised that not only were nappy changes more challenging with little boys, that finding cool gear for them was even more of a challenge and in 2014 started the online store The Boy's Store - a store dedicated to boy's only.  Following the purchase of Cherish Child in the Mount and the decision to merge the two brands, you'll also find her most days in store (often with a coffee in hand)!  Andrea is also the distributor of Pea Pods cloth nappies within New Zealand.

The other half

 Andrew is Andrea's other (he would say better!) half and is our key designer, in other words the guy who knows how to make things look good around here and make the online store an easy shopping experience!  Mackay is our #1 product tester, a rough and tumble typical boy who puts clothes and toys through their paces regularly. Mia is our #2 product tester- her love of fashion is evident, if the number of changes of clothes she does every day is anything to go by!!
