When Chen and Yan had their first daughter in 2007, they and their close friends found that the North Shore was lacking in a great selection of baby products that fit their active lifestyle. So they decided to start a new business and Active Baby was "born" 18 months later in 2009.
Their shop is full to the brim with everything you'd need for your growing child. Think strollers, car seats, organic clothing, kids’ camping gear, blankets, and so much more. Their aim is to arm you with supplies for your baby until he/she is old enough to start school. They have hunted down high-quality brands sturdy enough to withstand an adventurous, outdoor lifestyle. Active Baby holds environmentally and socially friendly brands such as Columbia, North Face, Kelty, Uppa Baby, Hatley, and Bugaboo. Active Baby is worth the trek to the North Shore if you need to stock up on outdoor gear and active living equipment.
You can also shop online; their webpage not only has their online catalogue but it is a hub of exciting activity. Visit the page regularly to get updates about store promotions and special offers.
It will also let you know about the variety of events they host such as sleep seminars, play-based activities, and tune ups on your stroller or bike trailer. Active Baby also has a blog. Articles vary from products Active Baby carries, to ways to enhance your child's life.
Active Baby's motto is "Growing active and living green." The store sure does evoke a desire to hit the local trails, snow-shoe on the mountains or just hang out at the beach.
Active Baby carries over a hundred brands in store and online. Here is a list of a few:
Bugaboo, Uppababy, Chariot, Mountain Buggy, Phil & Teds, Baby Jogger, Diono, Maxi-cozi, Clek, Cybex, Beco, Ergo, Deuter, Boon, Skip Hop, Born Free, Dr. Brown, Little Life, iplay, the North Face, Columbia, Hatley, Dwell Studio, JJ Cole, Adidas, Patagonia, Baby Banz, Hauck, Seally, Summer, Stonz, Avent, Aden + Anais, Bobike, Giro, etc.
