There’s never an end to the things you need for kids, as I’m sure any of you with children of your own will readily agree! I have a one-year old and seem to spend extremely large amounts of money on regular stuff for him. There are some stores I visit quite frequently mostly on the DLF phase IV/V side of Gurgaon since I live closer to this side. I’m pretty sure there are other baby stores towards Sector 14, etc, and I’ll be sure to write about them if I find out about any.
Littles: This is on the first floor of DT Mega Mall (couple of shops away from Fab India). It’s a nice and friendly store that used to be my favorite one till a couple of months ago. I still like the staff there, so always make it a point to go there first if I’m looking for something, but I find that they’re no longer as well stocked as they used to be. Nevertheless, you can get all the basics – nappies, PJs, vests and T-shirts, toiletries, bottles, wipes, etc. They also keep clothes, but I’ve honestly never found anything great in that department.
Be sure to ask for a discount when you go – they’ve been willing to give me one in the past!
Dezine Kids: This is a branch of the store by the same name in Greater Kailash in Delhi. It’s located on the ground floor of the DT Mega Mall, and is providing stiff competition to Littles. They’re very well stocked with all the regular baby stuff including some good everyday clothes, socks, shoes, blankets, thermals, and whatever else you can think of that your baby will need. In addition, they have a huge range of toys and activity stuff for kids of all ages, but especially babies and toddlers. This includes all the Fisher Price and Chicco and First Years toys as well as other stuff like tricycles, strollers, swings, etc. They even keep a small range of cots and cribs. What I don’t like about them is the staff. They’re not friendly or forthcoming or interested in the business you might provide them, which makes you not want to provide them any business. At the same time, they do have a lot of good stuff. So, I still go when I need to, but I don’t enjoy shopping there.
Little Angels: This is a simple little baby store in the Galleria market in DLF Phase IV (close to Ridgewood Estates). They’re not fancy or even very well kept, but you can always pick up basic baby things like diapers, wipes, baby undies, and small toys there. I like stores like Little Angels because they always seem to have the smallest of things and are generally much cheaper for the same things than other stores.
Bibs and Cribs: I think this store is part of a large chain. It’s in the MGF Mega City Mall on the top floor, next to the food court. It’s nice for large stuff like cribs and cots and strollers and swings because they have a good collection and also keep a lot of imported brands such as Maclaren or Graco, which are much better for these things. Also, they keep some really nice baby room décor stuff like lamps, wall paper borders, night lights, door knobs, and so on. All this stuff is imported and really quite expensive, but also quite nice. Definitely go to this place if you’re looking to do up your baby’s room…you’ll find something you like. Don’t go to this place if you just need everyday baby things…they keep a limited range and it’s unnecessarily expensive.
If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy any and all baby shopping…so check out these stores the next time you’re in the area and have fun!
