I love my two little kiddos. And they love me too, I am happy to say. My little boys adores me too much, I kid you not. They cling to me like velcro and fight for my attention. Once I get home from work and they see me, my toddler, Naj, would rush to me shouting, “Mommy” and my 7-months old, Fynn would recognize me & would reach out arms for his mommy. Fynn would wail if I would be a minute delay in me carrying him. Hugs from me puts a sweet smile to their faces. I feel like a rockstar and I am not complaining. It just makes me want to rush off back home once I get off from work to be with them. Though the challenge of taking them both outside for some shopping trip can be taxing for me. They only want mommy to carry them, both! Both are very rowdy and are all-over the place. The other wants to run while the other is trying to walk. Boys! What can you say. I cannot handle that challenge just yet. Thank God for online shopping! It is a lifesaver for moms like me.
I discovered this online specialty store that retails baby and kid-related products in Singapore called Toddle.
I researched a little bit about Toddle Online Shop before making any purchases. I love that their vision is all about ‘all great things come from small beginnings’. Tiny Steps, Big Dreams. I am happy to know that they carefully curate their products that would adhere to their S.H.I.N.E. criteria which stands for
They make sure their products help kids become more innovative and smart. They make sure the products are not detrimental to the child’s health. They only sell wholesome, organic foods and the toys are made from nontoxic natural materials. They make sure that the stuff you from the store is a sure investment and an essential part in the kid’s development. They also take note that products they offer are environmentally-friendly.
MY SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
I like the interface of the site. I like that it was catergorized quite neatly and so user-friendly. I hate complicated online shop which leads me to not make my purchases in the end. I don’t like pressing too many buttons and I like when it is in a clear categories. It has several categories:
1. Gear – for carriers and stroller
2. Play and Learn – for educational toys
3. Nursing and Feeding – for milk bottles, nursing accessories, etc.
4. Bath and Health – bath products and bath toys
5. Wearables – for clothes, shoes and sunglasses
6. Gifts – for baby shower gifts
They have an active blog to give you helpful information that is beneficial to parents and a better shopping decisions. I noticed that the prices are similar to those I have seen in retail shops. When I also noticed a Message Box on the right lower corner of the website to chat with a customer service personnel if I encounter any problem with my purchases. Though I found their online enquiry form on their page as well.
You select the items you like to buy. It is nice that there they give a thorough information of the item when you click on it. Once you are ready for check out, they will proceed you to your Paypal account for the purchase. It is better to register yourself first before making any purchases.
Naj is starting school next year, I wanted to get him some educational toys especially those that will teach him the alphabet and numbers. I also wanted him to introduce to him the love of reading so I am keen on getting him some books. I wanted to get Fynn a cute pacifier to bring when we go out and a sunglasses for his peepers because we are planning a beach trip soon.
I was impressed that the items I ordered came 2 days after my order date. It was nicely packaged along with the receipt.
MY TODDLE HAUL
I got this for Hape Countdown, an educational toy for Naj. It is a rocket in this endless maze that would enhance his fine motor skills and problem-solving ability. He loves this one so much. He would sit for hours playing with this.
I also got some books for him. Naj is obsessed with cars so I was ecstatic to see box set that in car like box of books about Emergency Vehicles. He would ask me and my hubby to read him his books 4x again in one sitting! Hahaha!
I also got My Learning Library-Words to quiz him with colors, toys, animals, etc. We must take good care of these so he can still pass it on to Fynn. I like that the back of the books serve as a puzzle as well.
We also got the Mr. Men Collection that contains 12 illustrated stories.
For his alphabets and numbers to prepare him for school year, we got the Melissa & Doug Magnetic Wooden Numbers, Hape Happy Hour Clock and Melissa & Doug Alphabet Sound Puzzle.
I got an adorable WubbaNub Mango Monkey Pacifier for Fynn to take along when we do travel outside or for him to play & suck at home.
We are planning a beach trip very soon so we got the Babiators Original Juniors in Black. He looks so dapper and cool using it.
Shopping at Toddle was an enjoyable experience. I know now where to go when I want some educational toys for the kids, a baby shower gifts for my friends, clothes & accessories for Naj & Fynn and a new stroller or baby chair.
