Babies R Us knows how to get you. You walk into the megastore intending to get just a couple of things — that crib sheet on your friend's registry, or a few packages of diapers. But then you see that adorable monkey blanket. And some itty-bitty fleece booties. And a tiny hat with bunny ears! Your budget is sunk. Babies R Us — on West Broad Street and in Midlothian — stands out for sheer selection. And the computerized registry system makes shower shopping simple. Second-place winner Franklin Goose in Carytown, is heaven for green-minded mamas. The locally owned Carytown shop offers eco-friendly, chemical-free baby toys and supplies, organic clothing and several lines of cloth diapers. And third-place winner Rattle & Roll sells stylish furniture, gifts, artwork and clothing you just can't find anywhere else.
