My Story

The Enchanted Child | Baby Gift Shop | Children's Boutique

Hi - I'm Julie, the owner of The Enchanted Child, a beautiful children's boutique located in Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.

I first opened The Enchanted Child in Flinders in 2008, when my now teenage son was only 5. It opened with just a small quantity of designer children's clothing. The shop was very small and as the business grew, it was time to expand. In 2010 The Enchanted Child was relocated to Balnarring to a bigger and brighter shop, which was a great decision.

Over the years, the shop has evolved into the vibrant baby and toy shop it is today: A bright, colourful place, always full of interesting toys, kids craft activities, books, puzzles, organic cotton baby clothes, and beautiful toys and gifts for new babies. The Enchanted Child continues to evolve and change. I love discovering new and beautiful products. We are moving towards offering more sustainable, environmentally friendly products where possible.

Enjoy browsing our ranges of baby gifts and children's toys and books. I hope you love it as much as I do.  Please come and visit when you can. Balnarring is only an hour's drive from Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula is a beautiful part of Australia.

There's a beautiful quote from St Francis of Assisi that I know to be true: "For it is in giving that we receive."
