Pacifier was founded in March, 2004, by Jon and Wing after a frustrating and fruitless search for a suitably "cool" gift for their new niece.

Minneapolis, though quite a hip town (shhh... we're trying not to let the word spread too much), was rather behind when it came to the realm of hip babies.

Lacking any other real purpose in life (save repeatedly applying for "The Amazing Race"), Jon and Wing opened Pacifier in the Old St. Anthony district of Minneapolis, an urban neighborhood just northeast of downtown which is home to institutions such as Nye's Polanaise Room, Kramarczuk's Deli (great homemade sausages!), Surdyk's, the Bulldog NE (try the rooster burger), Denny Kemp Salon + Spa, and Parc Boutique.

Pacifier's customers adored the eclectic collection of cool and modern baby gifts, clothes, wooden toys, diaper bags, and strollers that they found. Many asked if there were other locations. Since we aim to please, a Minneapolis skyway location opened in 2008 and a third location followed, in Edina in 2012.

Thanks for dropping by, and we hope you enjoy your visit.
