Best Stop for Fashionable Tykes and The Parents Who Dress Them: Gumdrop

This winter, fans of Handzy boutique’s funky products were handed the opportunity to style their little ones in similar curation that has made Handzy the go-to for quirky lifestyle and women’s clothing items. The boutique moved to a storefront next door to its former downtown Covington location in November, and in its place Gumdrop was born, a toddler-targeted boutique run by Handzy’s owners that offers adorable products designed for the most fashionable tykes. In addition to charming dresses dotted with rainbows and onesies adorned with quirky catchphrases, patrons can also spoil their toddling tots with other non-clothing products, like wooden toys, pacifiers, bibs, picture books and crib bedding. If Covington is too much of a hike with the kids in tow, the boutique has an online store with a variety of goods that can also be found in the brick-and-mortar shop. Gumdrop, 15 W. Pike St., Covington, gumdroptots.com.
