This post was completed in partnership with buybuyBABY Canada. Compensation was received in exchange for touring the store and sharing my opinions about it. I was a fan of buybuyBABY before, but am an even bigger fan now. All opinions and ideas in this post are my own.
A new buybuyBABY store just opened up here in south London and boy, are we excited! After a recent tour of the store with my daughter, I can promise you that we will both be shopping here for all of the baby goods we need from now on! We were already big fans of buybuyBABY online but the in-store experience is even more amazing! It’s the perfect place to get all of your baby essentials and to purchase baby gifts.
Here are My Top Ten Reasons to Get Your Baby Essentials at buybuyBABY
ONE: The Baby Registry at is so easy to use and offers perks beyond any others I know.
They don’t just take your information and then send you off to pick out items for your baby registry all alone! Nope. The well-informed customer service personnel ensure that you will be taken care of every step of the way. They offer expert information and guidance to answer all of your questions!
You get a fabulous goody bag filled with product coupons and samples, a registry completion discount, referral rewards, and more. One of my favourites from the goody bag? Their super cute exclusive book!
TWO: buybuyBABY offers a fresh, clean, boutique style store.
The store has nice wide aisles that are never crowded or cluttered. I don’t know about you but those jam-packed, hard to navigate stores make me crazy! This is like big box shopping with a boutique atmosphere. It’s well-organized and it’s so easy to find everything you’re looking for.
THREE: There’s an amazing selection of mid- and high-end baby and toddler merchandise.
You’ll find UppaBaby, Honest Company, aden + anais, Earth Mama, ErgoBaby, Jolly Jumper, Ellen Degeneres, Burt’s Bees, and more to cover every possible baby need. There is furniture galore to inspire visions of your perfect nursery – the best selection I’ve ever seen! (I can’t tell you how hard we had to work to find a white crib when Sam was pregnant with Walter).
There are consultants on hand to help you design the baby room of your dreams. You can even order personalized items for your little one! Oh and if they don’t have a product line you want, just ask. They’ll order it in! They even have products that are specifically geared to the local community – for example, in farming communities, you’ll find John Deere products on hand.
FOUR: They have a price match guarantee.
Found the same item at another store? buybuyBABY will match any competitors’ prices – that INCLUDES Amazon!!! Who else does that? And, if you buy something and find it’s just not quite right, they have a hassle-free return policy too.
They accept competitors’ coupons too. Oh and don’t forget – you can use not only buybuyBABY coupons but BedBathandBeyond coupons too! Be sure to sign up for their free email mailing list for more special offers and coupons.
FIVE: You can really check out the items in person before buying.
Will the car seat fit in your car? Try it in your car before you buy! Is that baby carrier comfortable to wear? Find out in the store (they even have weighted dolls for you to use)! How the heck do you open and close that stroller? They’ll show you.
SIX: The feeding/change room in the store is so comfy, I just about wanted to move in!
They keep the change table stocked with diapers for you in case you’re caught without! And, it’s equipped with a bottle warmer and cozy chairs for feeding and rocking your baby.
SEVEN: On site gift wrapping is available!
This is a bonus for those of us who are sometimes grabbing a gift on the way to a party. Ever try wrapping a gift on your lap while riding in the car? Ahem. And no more just slapping a bow on those large hard-to-wrap items! They even have gift bags large enough to accommodate car seats and strollers.
EIGHT: Everything you see in the store is available, either in-store or online.
See this gorgeous baby room that you want to copy in your own home? No more frustration over trying to find the various items for it! If it’s on display in the store, it’s available for sale. Wallpaper, rugs, lamps, flowers, everything right down to the details is there for you!
NINE: They hold special events for parents and kids at the store.
Upcoming events include an Easter egg hunt and a Mother’s Day shopping experience with small vendors invited to participate.
TEN: The customer service goes well above and beyond any I’ve experienced in any other store.
Highly trained store staff are there to answer all your questions. They can show you the pros and cons of the various product choices. You can see how the products work before you take them home. Shopping for a baby registry? Take a seat – they’ll even go around the store doing the shopping for you!
I really don’t think you could find a better selection or better shopping experience when looking for baby essentials and gifts anywhere. buybuyBABY far exceeded my expectations! They’ll be seeing a lot of us in the future.
