Baby Stuff

Postby zmikers » 15 Apr 2012, 10:37

HI, my wife and I are trying to find a shop where we can not only buy, but also look at try out baby "stuff" strollers, car seats, playpens, cribs etc. We have been to many shops around Taipei and they have one, maybe two cribs on display and one stroller if your lucky. We want to find a place where we can see the different strollers on display and compare the products. Do these stores exist in Taipei? The closest we found was in Miramar, but it is really pricey there. Any ideas would be appreciated, Cheers!

Er Nu Shi Bao, at Guangfu and Ren'ai, 2F. If you ask, their staff will pull strollers and car seats down off the shelves for you and demonstrate them and discuss their differences; they'll also assemble the strollers for you if ordering you a new one (rather than a display model). They're not as cheap as buying online, but you should expect to pay for such service. Above a KFC, I think, and an elevator is available, behind the door guard's desk. BTW, I'll move this to the Parenting subforum, where you might find more info on this and related topics.
Now selling homestyle baked goods (cookies, brownies, baklava, pies, sourdough bread, whole-wheat sourdough bagels and cakes) made with many organic, fair-trade and/or local pesticide-free ingredients.

We like this one: NewMamma, a complete baby store. (Nai3 Wa1 De3 Dian4)
For expecting moms, post-partum moms, and all stuff for babies under two. Huge.

B1 #64 Nanjing E Rd Section 5/Sanmin Road
02.2760.2111/02.8787.4636

It is behind the Watson's on Nanjing East Section 5.

Tons of stuff, strollers, toys, bottles, pumps, push trikes, etc. They were very helpful. It's in the basement, but they'll help you carry stuff up.

No prob! Er nu shi bao is on the SW corner, btw. NewMam(m?)a is bigger, but when we were there, we had great difficulty flagging down any staff to help us; there were too many customers. Maybe it was because it was a weekend. Er nu shi bao is a smaller store and if you go on a low-volume day, it's more pleasant.

Newmama is good on weekdays, few customers and easy to find help. Weekend mornings are also OK.

So, we went to Er Nu Shi Bao yesterday and it was great. The staff was very helpful and really polite too, she even suggested to buy a few small things abroad and not from them to save cost. Very honest, I appreciate that a lot. We will check out newmama this week. Thanks again everybody!

Hi - I just posted a question on where to get organic products. I would like to get both food and things for the house (towels, blankets, clothing, etc.). Please let me know if you happen to know of a reliable place. Thank you!

I was told by locals that Taiwan-Organic Food items are not really organic as they do not stick to the protocol.

Following on Newmama comments above, I recommend going during the week for better service as well. I did go once over the weekend and could get anything done. :noway:
