    Default places to shop in melbourne

    Hi



    any ideas of where to go baby shopping in melbourne in the south east suburbs?

    i plan on having a look at baby bunting, parenthood (bridge road) and the baby gallery (clayton). i know the choice in those places is probably more than sufficient, but can anyone recommend any other place that is worthwhile in terms of range/price?

    Thanks!

    I gor everything for my DD from Baby Gallery. It's soooo much cheaper than Baby Bunting and they were really helpful and have a really big range.

    It is in the city, but if you are after toys etc there is the best teddy and toy shop in the Block Arcade on Collins Street. Great for telling family and friends about to get the bubba gifts

    You can get a few things from the target & toy r us they have pretty good sales. The baby stores are so expensive... we bought most things from baby gallery as we stumbled in there when it was on sale. I won't be going back as we bought some stuff which was the wrong colour & they denied there was a problem.

    Babyco has a factory outlet down wellington road rowville, maybe you can get something there

    Don't forget the chain stores - they are way cheaper than the baby stores for pretty much the same thing (just different brands) - Target, Kmart & Big W are all good. We have bought all our nursery items from these stores and have saved ourselves a small fortune.

    There is a small shop in Dandenong called hush-a-bye-baby. The man in there is so lovely. The shop doesnt look as flash as the baby gallery or the likes. But once we knew what we wanted we went there and he matched the best price we could find, plus an extra discount, and now he still gives us a discount on anything we buy.
    We ordered in what we wanted with no problems at all.
