Babies “R” Us
There’s one clear advantage to shopping at the largest baby product specialty chain store in the world – they have a lot of stuff. The big, bright Babies “R” Us stores, a division of Toys R Us, offer selection and prices that are hard to match.. From car seats to swings, play yards, clothing, lamps and furniture, you’ll find everything you need to usher your child from womb to adorably decorated room. Pick a theme – from the whimsical cartoons of John Lennon to classic Winnie the Pooh – and at Babies “R” Us, you can deck out the entire nursery, from window treatments and lamps to area rugs and wall art. Expectant parents can even register at the store or on-line. Every Babies “R” Us has a special breastfeeding and changing area, and offers special events throughout the year, including free car-seat inspections and parenting seminars.
Babies come into this world empty-handed. Thank goodness there’s Target to provide everything they need at affordable prices. You’ll find brand names you trust, such as Fisher Price, Graco and Amy Coe. Target also offers a gift registry and a Web site packed with parenting information and ideas. From diaper disposal systems to feeding pillows, wipe warmers and monitors that light up when your baby moves, a trip to Target has everything for babies. That makes even the most nervous new parents feel a little more relaxed.
