When you’re selecting a stroller, there’s no substitute for a test-drive: you can research and order a stroller sight-unseen and you’ll probably like it, but if you want to find your truly perfect match, visiting our baby stores, standing behind a stroller, and seeing how it feels to wheel is the key to discovering buggy love.
Likewise, there are a zillion other items that you’re going to want to put on your Baby Registry, and there’s no reason to try and tackle it on your own when there are trained experts on hand to help you out! The customer service staff at specialty baby stores have priceless product knowledge to share, and along with helping you find the gear they need, their expertise will help you feel more confident about parenting. If you’ve got the right gear and you know how to use it, you’re a step ahead of the game, and you can save the worrying for all of the other aspects of new parenthood.
Of course, ideally, you’d be able to come to a Magic Beans store and enjoy the services of our Registry Concierges and Stroller Matchmakers (who are, by the way, quite happy to advise you online – just sign up for a FREE consultation). We’ve built a thriving company around our superb customer service, and there’s no reason to be modest about it: our team will help you explore our handpicked selection and find the items that you’ll love using every day.
But if you’re in one of the other far-flung corners of our gigantic nation, and you’ve got one of these other specialty baby stores in your town, we’re confident that they’ll take good care of you!
NessaLee Baby – New Jersey
This top-rated baby boutique has a terrific combination of new, cool, and stylish products, as well as reliable time-tested favorites. You’ll see all of our favorites there – Bugaboo, Orbit Baby, Aden + Anais, Ergobaby, and many more.
As for service: for starters, not only can you do a thorough stroller test-drive at NessaLee, but they even have a test track where you can try out strollers on a variety of terrain! And, just as we pair our registrants with their own Registry Concierge, at NessaLee, you get your own Baby Ambassador. Welcome to the world, kiddo!
Galt Toys + Galt Baby – Chicago
As we already noted in our entry on the best toy stores in America, Galt was one of the major inspirations of Magic Beans: we loved the atmosphere and the selection, and you’ll find a lot of what you love about Magic Beans at Galt.
And along with that great selection comes next-level customer service! Not only will Galt staff help you find exactly what you need, but they’ll assemble your stroller for free, and install your car seat for free, too. If you buy your seat elsewhere, you can still use their certified techs – it’ll just cost you $75, which is totally worth it for your child’s safety and your peace of mind! They also offer stroller tuneups and cleaning (which we have also been known to do on occasion).
Kid’s Stuff Superstore – Nebraska
Plunked out in the center of the country, you’ll find this amazing hidden gem, with a selection that merges boutique and mass-market items to ensure that you can choose from the very best. Founded in 1981 and owned and run by the Francis and Pederson families, they now have three large, well-stocked stores.
And naturally, like any specialty baby store, they’ll go the extra mile to help you out: on Yelp, one mom praised how not only did their salesman give them a very thorough lesson on car seats, but he also checked their baby in her infant seat to make sure she still fit it safely! Only businesses like ours can give you this kind of customer service – specialty baby stores employ people who really care.
Liapela Modern Baby, Florida
The brainchild of Miami mom Alejandra Salazar, this store connects contemporary urban families with the best baby products around the world, and you’ll see a lot of our favorite American and international brands there: UPPAbaby, Stokke, 4Moms, Doona, and many more.
As with any specialty store worth their salt, Liapela salespeople prioritize getting to know their customers – as you’ll see in their Google reviews, their attentive salespeople will walk you carefully through their selection, deliver and assemble your furniture, and remember having met you last week!
Baby Furniture Plus Kids – North Carolina
They’re the furniture experts! The folks at Baby Furniture Plus Kids are up on every trend and offer an enormous, diverse selection in their 8000 square foot showroom.
Along with the best cribs and gliders, you’ll find some incredibly charming nursery decor there, as well as accessories and a little bit of gear from top brands like Nuna and Clek. Their staff is helpful and eager to please, and they even have some amazing clearance sales where you can get top-shelf furniture for great prices!
