My Paradigm shift to a one stop baby shop….
How often do you actually research before shopping for baby products?
The typical new mother ends up spending thousands of dollars each year purchasing so-called “baby essentials” because of lack of information. I ended up buying a pink pram for my daughter because I thought it was so “pretty”. Vije and I are planning a second child and if our second is a boy, what will I do with a pink pram?
Not every baby item needs to be an expensive one, we need to trust brands around us and give them an opportunity to prove themselves.
TIPS WHEN PURCHASING NEW BABY PRODUCTS:
1. Research brands and essential items you will need for your baby. Listen to other mother’s – take what they say to heart.
2. Read review blogs and ratings on the brand’s products.
3. Compare prices by looking at sale papers.
3. Get something gender neutral with the big items (stroller etc.) if you planning on having more than 1 child and you’re on a budget.
4. Always find out about the guarantee and warranty of the product.
Game stores in South Africa (owned by Walmart International) has proven to me that they are one of the contenders for quality baby products at a reasonable price.
To be honest, I never thought about visiting the store for baby products because for I thought Game was a store for appliances, etc. They were just not “the” baby store. Don’t get me wrong, I like shopping at Game but for the odd essentials. Believe it or not this is what I thought, then Game decided to prove me wrong.
They sent me a box full of goodies from their baby range to touch, feel and see, as well as experience the quality of the brands they promote. I was impressed. A brand which I always believed was better for electronics than baby products wowed me with their George Baby Range.
George, a much-loved fashion brand in Britain has proven to be a hit for South Africans since its clothing launch. The brand stands for quality, style and value, which is exactly what the Game customer expects when visiting the store.
After all anything that shares the name of Royalty should have the edge.
1. George baby range
3. Car seats
4. Camp cots
5. Nappy bags
6. Bedding’s and blankets
7. Feeding solutions – Everything you need from the milk to feeding chairs.
8. Toiletries – From bath wash to wet wipes, even your medication is catered for.
9. Baby safety solutions
From stylish 3 pack bodysuits for boys and girls, to incredible value-for-money newborn starter sets, the George Baby range also includes colourful bibs and scratch mitts. This is practical and provides value for money.
Prams, Car Seats, Nappy Bags, etc has always been a priority for parents-to-be. There’s such a huge market for these products but it all depends on what your pocket can afford. 99% of prams and car seats do the same thing, so it depends if you want a specific name brand or not. Game offers a range for those watching their pockets. Giving you quality at a reasonable price!
A pram is not just a pram, neither is a car seat a car seat, like a car each person has his/her own needs and with their wide variety on display – These helpful consultants can help you make the right choice for your lifestyle needs.
It’s become a store that you can buy almost everything and I’m so glad they finally expanded their baby range.
I think that besides all the products listed above, the thing that impresses me about Game is the constant striving for success and the willingness to expand and make it a 1 stop shop. They provide value that you can afford and are so sure about their quality that they have a price beat policy. SO next time you go shopping – try stopping at your nearest Game Store…. Saving you money, time and energy.
Thank you Game for giving me a much-needed paradigm shift.
