Hi pram gurus!

I'm hoping someone can advise me where to look as this is our first bub, neither of us is from Sydney and we're a bit lost!

So far, I've only been to Babies Galore and Baby Co but they both have totally different stock and I'm sure the ones in Chatswood are not the cheapest.

I guess my question is: where in Sydney can I find a big baby store that stocks a wide range of prams so we can compare them properly and look for a good deal?  I find it hard to do on the internet as I'm definitely a "try before you buy" person.  I don't mind having to travel a bit to look.

thanks for your help

I recommend Baby Kingdom (we went to the one in Alexandria). the prices are better than Babies Galore and they ahve a wide range of stock and helpful staff. Ask for a discount if they don't offer you one. They are not reluctant to offer lower prices if you ask.  All the best

I definitely recommend Baby Kingdom.  You will find they are also the best prices by far (especially when you are buying a lot).  Any store is good but the one at Bankstown is huge so worth the treck if you have a few things to get.

BTW - it is worth doing one big shop for all your stuff.  You will get a much bigger discount when shopping for the lot.  Baby Kingdom have a VIP club that you join when you do a big order (I dont remember the minimum) and then you get lifetime discounts over and above their normal and sale prices.  <this is a bonus because they really are cheaper>

Cheers

Babies Galore are consitently more expensive than other shops, so I'd recommend staying away. Independent shops are better. Baby Kingdom is the place in Sydney where I've seen the cheapest pram and agree with PP. Get the car seat and the pram and other bits at the same time. When we got our P&T we got 5% off the pram and then another 10% off everthing because we spent over $1000. That was in Brisbane though...

yeah, I live right near the alexandria baby kingdom, once you spend over $1000 you get a 10% discount for ever (12% when they have a sale on)

They have 10% off storewide atm.

I also recommend Baby Kingdom.  I went to the one at Penrith, it was a bit of a trek but worth it.  We bought most things at once and saved a small fortune.  If they dont have one thing on your list that you want, ask if they can get it in for you.  I bought a few things but they didnt have the mattresses that I wanted, but they got them in for me, and I still got a discount!

I bought an item from them a couple of months ago that is sold for $65 everywhere else, but at Sydney's Baby Kingdom they sell it for $55, then I got the 10% off that (VIP member)!

I thought that Babies Galore have the widest range of prams. Baby Co have a lot of their own stuff that you won't find in other shops. If you're after range, just go to the store and test drive, then make notes of make and model and buy from wherever. If you're actually wanting to purchase the exact product you test drive then that's something else.

I would agree that Baby Kingdom has the best range and the best prices, plus heaps of staff all wanting to help you.  I went (and still go) to the Baby Kingdom at Bankstown.

Always remember that prices are negotiable, over and above their regular 10% discount.
