I spent quite a long time pouring through the different stores that feature on Kiddiebase's site. I eventually decided to buy a selection of items instead of one big item.
Kidz Klobber is a store that provides high quality, price conscious alternatives to childrenswear on the high street alongside a selection of traditional toys and gifts.
We chose a Funky Monkey T-Shirt in a Spaceman design which was £10. This bio-washed, premium cotton, supersoft T-Shirt is of an excellent quality. I loved the picture and the "Ground Control to Funky Monkey" slogan and the detail on the back was a nice touch.
The Wooden Animal Clacker is an absolute bargain at just £1.89. It is part of a range of traditional wooden toys being sold at great prices. I got the frog design for Freddy and he loves clacking it. It is a great introduction to music and rhythm.
Baba + Boo stock a range of accessories for little ones including some very funky training pants in cool designs to help with the transition to potty training. They have an absorbent gusset and waterproof layer keeping clothing protected in case of accidents. They are suitable for ages 2-3 years. We chose the Bee design . They are a lovely quality and a good size.
The service was excellent. Although the order goes through Kiddiebase, the individual stores contact you to confirm your order by email. They were very friendly and approachable. I was kept up to date with delivery times and even received a personal message wishing me well with the potty training! It was very friendly service. Both individual packages arrived quickly and well packaged. The independent retailers really make shopping online a pleasure by going that extra mile for their customers.
Overall, the experience of shopping at Kiddiebase was very positive. The extensive range of unique products means you will be able to find some really original and interesting items. It is nice to see independent online retailers being given the chance to reach a wider audience, and it is nice for customers to have a marketplace for discovering exciting new shops.
