On being greeted by our hosts for the day, little monkey and I were invited to the Kiddicare cafe for complimentary drinks whist the other bloggers arrived.
After everyone arrived we were split into two groups and ours was given a tour of the store. Kiddicare Enfield, like all the other stores is 'divided' into sections for ease of browsing and shopping, with clearly named labels hanging from the ceiling so shoppers can quickly see which part of the store they need.
Everything for baby and toddler plus preschooler is under one roof and there are lots of staff on hand to answer questions, help find things and generally assist shoppers. There are plenty of car seats to choose from plus a free car fitting service, lots of toys and also large outdoor toys on display to play in, loads of cots, cot beds and toddler beds plus bedding and nursery furniture. A huge pushchair section with a path for test driving them and all the pushchair accessories you can think of! They even have a pushchair repair and service center. Kiddicare do their own range of affordable clothing for babies and tots which looked bright and cheerful and great value for money. There is a large selection of highchairs and feeding accessories plus nappies, toiletries and other bathtime products, all set out well with plenty of space for parents to push their children in pushchairs with ease around the store.
After our store tour it was time for lunch. The cafe has a large community table for occasions such as today and we were invited to have lunch on Kiddicare. The menu was pretty varied and babies and children are fully catered for! Little monkey had a lunchbox full of goodies to eat and I opted for a Panini. There were plenty of highchairs available and sofa's for those that want a more casual pit stop. Right next to the cafe is an enclosed play area for children that has clear windows so parents can have a drink or a bite to eat whilst being able to watch their little ones.
There is an enclosed area for nursing mums and the toilets and baby changing facilities are well thought out and suitable for parents and children to use together with plenty of room for pushchairs too. Kiddicare offer a baby gift list service amongst other services including their V.I.P (very important baby) personal shopping service. There is also an events room that can be hired out for parties, that is used for community groups and functions daily. After a lovely lunch and much chatter we were invited in there today to watch children's entertainer Captain Fantastic. The children loved his show but little monkey was a little shy!
After the show we were invited to have a stroll around the store and given a 10% off voucher to redeem against any purchases we made today. We were also handed a fab goody bag to take away. This is what was in it!
Little monkey and I would like to thank the lovely PR at Kiddicare and their colleagues for today. It was a great opportunity to spend the day with other mummy bloggers and see the latest store.
