Baby Love

Lei Chic We hate to be the ones to tell you this, but, well, here goes...

Your kid isn't living up to his full potential.

Sure, he's just an infant. And yes, his motor skills are already quite impressive. But his cuteness factor? Let's just say it could be much, much higher.

Which means you'll want to bring him to this place...

Introducing AirBuggy, a Japanese boutique stocked with carefully curated and hard-to-find baby products, now open on Waikiki Beach Walk.

Step inside the bright, airy space and start perusing its floor-to-ceiling shelves for fun, printed quick-dry rompers, bibs and hats from First Dress, and striped and gingham organic cotton rompers by Makie. Then browse Bobo's bold lineup of towel bibs, multi-functional bath aprons and towels, and tasseled soft shoes with a kick of color.

Don't forget to perk up his nursery with adorable cartoon animal storage caddies, boxes and bins by 3 Sprouts, and felt hanging decorations by Amsterdam's Global Affairs. Then stock up on products both of you can use - all-natural, papaya-infused mum + bub ointments, hair and body washes and lotions, Bloomingdale's "little brown bag" insulated zip-top lunch bags, and über-soft aden + anais bamboo swaddling cloths.

If you want him riding in style, there's an entire wall devoted to AirBuggy's signature line of lightweight, three-wheeled strollers. Feel free to test drive any color and design, including the Hawaii-exclusive orange or blue Aloha print versions.

Because you want your kid at his absolute best.

That means knowing his way around a hot set of wheels.

Apparel $10 and up, home/accessories $15.95 and up, strollers $480-$500. AirBuggy, Waikiki Beach Walk, 2nd Floor, open 10 a.m.-10 p.m. daily, (808) 533-9070. Free 3-hour valet parking at Embassy Suites, 201 Beachwalk St., 10 a.m.-3 p.m., with online coupon and receipt of $10 or more.
