About us

Castle House is an iconic children's store located on beautiful Hyde Park Square. Castle House has been in business continuously for almost 60 years. We are the go-to Cincinnati destination for baby gifts, shoes and classic children's wear from birth until Size 16 in boys and girls. We specialize in outstanding customer service and providing an easy and enjoyable shopping experience.

The store was purchased by its current owner, Jenn Bastos, a little over 4 years ago. Jenn, her husband and 3 girls live in Hyde Park and are thrilled to be a part of the Hyde Park business community. When the store changed ownership, it was given a new look and feel while still carrying many of the designers that help make the store a shopping destination over the years. In addition to the new look, the new owner has brought in updated and contemporary offerings for our 7-16 size range. While the overall style of the store is classic, we like to think that we have put our own little twist on that classic style, that never goes out of style. In baby and toddler, our most popular lines are Beaufort Bonnet, Kissy Kissy and Florence Eiseman, Bella Bliss & EGG. In bigger sizes our most popular designers are Splendid, Ella Moss, Joules, Southern Tide, Johnnie O, Kate Spade, Mayoral, Sally Miller & Catimini. Additionally, in the winter we sell a lot of Patagonia and North Face outerwear. 
We are a unique store in this market because we are a one-stop shop... we have it all and consider ourselves almost a small children's department store carrying everything from clothes, socks and shoes to accessories, belts, ties and even pajamas. We have unique gift items for all ages, that we will always happily gift wrap.
Finally, we are extremely well known all around the tri-state area for our Special Occasion collections. We have a beautiful selection of Christening gowns, First Communion Dresses and Flower Girl dresses. We also have a great selection of dresses for Bat Mitzahs. We have not forgotten the boys; we carry a selection of suits and blazers, as well as ties and bow ties. We take appointments for "Special Occasion" shopping, but you can also stop in at any time and anyone can help.
