It’s called Real Baby. It’s coming soon to Boulder, already in Denver…and for those of you elsewhere, they’ve got a one-stop conscious consumerism online shop on this new fangled world wide web thingy.

Real Baby Opening Hip New Store in Boulder at 1505 Pearl Street with Modern Baby Gear, Kids Clothes, Maternity Wear, Toys, Books and More…Popular Denver Business Expanding to Boulder – Opening Aug. 18 

After establishing its first shop in Denver’s West Highlands neighborhood in March 2003, Real Baby became a favorite place for those seeking hip baby products and original gifts in a friendly shop. Now Real Baby’s owner-operators are bringing their winning formula to Boulder. 

“Boulder is an exciting place full of families who appreciate great design and practicality—it’s the perfect market for Real Baby,” said Hilary Horan, who along with her husband John founded Real Baby, and who personally hand picks all merchandise for the company. “We think the Boulder community will love our warm style of customer care. John, myself and our close staff are excited to get to know local families and bring them hip, organic products and welcoming service.”

In addition to its Boulder expansion, Real Baby is fast becoming a leading national online specialty retailer at its web site. Real Baby sells a wide range of truly modern and hard-to-find products manufactured by some of the world’s most innovative design companies.  

Hilary Horan: “Whether they are educational, useful or just fun and adorable, we strive to provide all of our customers’ baby wants and needs in one place.”

In Boulder, Real Baby is located in the brand new and green-built 1505 Pearl Street building at 15th and Pearl St., on the east end of Boulder’s famed Pearl Street Mall shopping district. Kids are warmly welcomed in the store, and can keep busy with a big Thomas the Tank Engine train table and other toys to sample. In addition to a wide range of practical offerings, Real Baby is the perfect place to find a gift. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and others love their gift certificates and free gift packaging in eco-friendly bags. 

Parents who struggle to set up baby gear are in for a delight. The Real Baby staff will happily assemble products and demonstrate their features free of charge. “I’ve had customers call me with questions, and I’m happy to cruise over to their homes to get their gear set up just right,” said John Horan. “We build great relationships with our customers so that they’ll come back again and again, and share our name with their friends and family.”

Offering a wide range of high quality, sleek and innovative gear, furniture, clothing, maternity wear, books, toys and accessories for babies, little kids and moms-to-be, Real Baby is known for its original product line and warm, friendly service.
