The three-year-old girl went missing from the Primark store on Northumberland Street at 4.55pm on Wednesday.
A major search was launched, with officers scouring CCTV belonging to the council and local shops.
Police found the girl over an hour later several miles away in Gosforth.
The suspects are aged 13 and 14.
The toddler was “quickly reunited with her mother” after the incident.
