if i have to take my kids shopping i head to Red Wagon(on Charles Street). It is so much fun for them and they can read books while i get stuff done. I go on the citysearch everyday to look up restaurants and what not...and i am shocked that red wagon on charles street does not have any ratings much less a listing. It is a save bet you will find something or enjoy yourself while your looking. And there are not alot of stores that are kid friendly on charles street...so this place is a good spot.
Pros: location, large store, fun
Cons: no parking
