About Us

The Red Balloon Co. opened its Chicago doors in 1998 as a children's furniture store, selling handmade furniture of our own design, like our signature decoupaged toy chests.

In the years to come, we expanded to include a wide selection of children's clothing, books, toys, and room accessories--all selected for durability and the wonderful, whimsical qualities that make childhood so special. 

In 2005, we opened a second store in Chicago. Our website services those customers outside the Chicago area, and we're constantly putting up new products for purchase online. All of us who work at The Red Balloon Co. are passionate about what we do and welcome the opportunity to help customers choose the perfect gift for their own children or for those of another. 

Next time you visit Chicago, we encourage you to visit one of our stores, located in the heart of Chicago's happening Bucktown and Andersonville neighborhoods.
