Given how much the Spanish love children, it comes as no surprise to find a whole host of shops on the island indulging this national characteristic. Whether it’s toys or tank tops, books or booties, you’re sure to find the prettiest of purchases here in Mallorca. And in terms of selection, there’s enough choice to keep everyone from mums-to-be to temperamental teenagers satisfied.
That’s not to say that the rest of the island doesn’t have anything to offer – on the contrary. Be it Pollensa or Porto Cristo, there are many attractive individual boutiques scattered about, each with their own style and offering. But for the purpose of this article, we present you with a handful of our favourites all based in Palma or clsoe-by, while on your travels around the island you can discover your own.
As a starting point, head straight for the capital’s best-known shopping street, Avenida de Jaime III.
El Corte Inglés
You cannot fail to miss Spain’s most famous department store standing centrally on the Avenidas. Well air conditioned, it’s often a pleasant retreat from the hot midday sun and contains a large selection of baby, children and youth items (as well as the other usual department store sections, including great toy and book departments).
Avenida de Jaime III, 15 Palma de Mallorca.
Quality Spanish design company Massimo Dutti has a shop devoted solely to stylish boys and girls clothing.
Avenida de Jaime III, 10 Palma de Mallorca.

While it’s true that Palma seems to have no end of pricey independent boutiques, there are also many mainstream chainstore favourites where you can snap up a bargain.
Young trendsetters everywhere love Zara Kids for hip, popping design and comfort. Sensible prices and a decent standard of durability mean parents are great fans, too.

Kids are free to be kids dressed in fun styles by Swedish label H&M. Small price tags mean parents needn’t worry so much about their little ones getting messy and spoiling their outfits – a typically laid-back sort of attitude as extolled by the Swedes.
Plaza Juan Carlos I, 1 Palma de Mallorca.
If you’re of the thinking that small children grow out of clothes so fast you needn’t spend a fortune on them, Primark could be your bag. When this hugely popular UK fashion retailer opened at Fan Mallorca Shopping in 2016, queues were out of the door. It’s budget clothing so don’t expect fantastic quality, but its designers are very quick to copy trends and teenagers generally love it for a quick, cheap fix.
Carrer del Cardel de Rossell, s/n, 07007 Palma de Mallorca.
This sporting superstore located at Son Moix on the outskirts of the city is brilliant for kitting out the whole family.

Porto Pi shopping centre
Even the most shopping-adverse son or daughter will find the experience (or at the very least, tolerable!) at Porto Pi. Sitting at the end of Paseo Maritimo, it has shops for all kids’ ages and tastes, from the frothy and fun Disney Store to the altogether more sophisticated Massimo Dutti. Trendy teens will appreciate Zara (incorporating Zara Kids), Mango, Pull & Bear and Kiabi, amongst others.
Babies and mums-to-be
If you are an expectant mother in need of a shopping trip for essential supplies, it appears that your predicament has been entirely catered for. Right in Palma city centre, there’s a cluster of some of the best children’s shops stocking all you could possibly require in just a couple of streets located right next to each other. So no trekking for miles with swollen ankles in 30°+ heat! And, if you prefer your shopping out of town so you need only step from car to shop, this is also easily done.
Come out of El Corte Inglès and directly across the road to the left, you’ll find a branch of the well known French chain store Prenatal. Selling clothing and accessories (prams, bottle feeding equipment, etc.) for mothers-to-be, babies and children, the company aims to ‘help women be modern mothers’.
