Gift Shops and Retail
At Children's Health℠, our gift shops sell age-appropriate gifts for children, as well as:

Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards are accepted as payment at both of our Dallas locations, where orders can be placed in person or over the phone, as well as at our online Plano store.
Children's Medical Center Dallas
In response to social distancing efforts, our current hours are:
- Monday -Sunday
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
(Closed 12:00 - 12:30 daily for lunch)
Shoppers will now be greeted in front of the store where their shopping order will be taken and then processed by a gift shop employee. This is an effort to minimize the number of people entering the store at one time and the number of individuals touching the merchandise while still allowing team members and families to purchase much needed items.
Orders may also be placed by phone. Patients will be notified and will be able to pick up the gift from the gift shop.
The Children’s Corner Gift Shop is located in the Tower D lobby area, next to Seacrest Studios. All proceeds support Children’s Health℠.
Children’s Medical Center Dallas is the first pediatric hospital in the country to offer Amazon Lockers, secure, self-service kiosks where our patient families can pick up Amazon.com deliveries 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without leaving campus.
Lockers are conveniently located next to the Dining Car Café on the lower level of the hospital.
Learn more about Amazon Lockers and how to use them to send a gift.
