    Can try Cheong Choon Store at Chinatown. Blk 34 Upper Cross Street #03-132. Tel: 65323855. Nothing much in the showroom, but they have catalogue, so you can visit departmental stores to check out what you want and let them know the model no. and they will let you know the price. I just ordered a Combi stroller for my friend and it is about $20 - $30 off retail price.

    They open Mon - Sat from 1.30 pm onwards until i think 6 or 6+ pm. Can call and ask.

    there was a motherhood at around this time last year, so look out for it. may not be able to buy many bulky items there but you can buy stuff like baby detergent, shampoo, bath soap etc at pretty good prices.
    bought most of my stuff at kiddy palace with their membership card (10% discount) which you get free after spending $100, lasts for one year.

    Hi,

    I recommend getting baby stuff like cot, stroller and car seat from Baby Avenue, the sister store of Baby's Hyperstore. I prefer it because the wares there are better organized and displayed, less crowded and therefore the staff have more time to attend to us. When hubby and I visited Baby's Hyperstore, we wandered around for half an hour and left without being served because it was so crowded that the staff had no time for us at all. But when we went to Baby Avenue on a Saturday afternoon, there were very few customers and a staff member was with us all the time, answering our questions and demonstrating how to use the items. We eventually bought a cot, a car seat and a Medela Mini Electric Pump package from them.

    I am generally satisfied with the service and quality of goods at Baby Avenue, the staff there are much more attentive and informative than those of Baby's Hyperstore and Baby Kingdom. Price wise, I paid $30 to become their member so as to enjoy members' discount and free delivery, hence I spent $288 on an Inglesina car seat (u. p. $338) and $298 on the Vanille cot with free mattress and 9-piece bedding set (u. p. $358). I saw the same cot with mattress and bedding set selling at $369 in Tangs and John Little later on, so I guess the $30 I paid for membership was quite worthwhile then.

    Hi,
    I called Cheong Choon based on the number above & made a discovery for the number is the same as that for Baby Hypermart which I'd called earlier to enquire about the cost of Maxi Cosi car seat.
    And to me, its the same lady who had answered my call at BabyHypermart. I'm suspecting both are owned by the same people.

    First time around I asked about the car seat with Baby Hypermart, the lady had to check and return my call as I enquired specifically about a colour model. This time around, the lady who answered when I dialled Cheong Choon (note the number is the same) answered yes when I asked if this is Cheong Choon and she didn't have to check, but could answer me straight away on availability. I think she is able to do so as she has done the homework when I'd called her at Baby Hypermart earlier.

    I wonder if anyone can confirm my suspicion that both are owned by same people? Because if it is indeed so, then we mothers really can just treat these 2 places as one since I believe the prices should be the same.

    Hi.. don mean to intrude ur post..i seems to have problem creating new thread.... in case oer tts interested P3 in surf.. I have 1 to let go...CASH n CARRY from BEDOK RESERVOIR.

    Bought last year December. Pram is a spare pram.. I have 2 P3 n another tandem. Uses the tandem more often.Pram hardly used n look very brand new n well taken care. NO OBVIOUS scratch or stains.

    Original retail was S$580...now i saw at first few years selling at $640... I'm willing to let go S$340. This is a good catch for those who wants their value for money... but still getting a higher end product..

    Peg Perego are made in ITALY... thus u can trust the qualit n durability. Pram is very easy to manouver despite of the weight of 2 children..
    -suitable for newborn till up to 30kg
    -standing board for 2nd child
    -sun hood can be pull all the way down
    -compact umbrella fold
    -mum's cup holder
    -removable fabric tt can be wash
    These are impt factors tt mum should consider for a good pram...


    Interest n Serious buyer pls PM or contact me @ bdr_80@yahoo.com

    I bought my baby's playpen in JB (City Square) Cartoon Kingdom or something.. It's quite hard to see from outside cos they display all the way back in the shop.. Only @ RM198.. SUPER value for money! 2 levels with side pocket & mosquito net.. Very pretty also.. We love it till now..

    My yao yao given to us by my in-laws.. They also bought it from Parkson (They said near Holiday Plaza) for RM99..

    It's ok if u drive.. But if not, then it's not convenient le.. We were on budget for baby stuff, so we decided to drive to JB to have a look.. XD.. Lucky we stay woodlands and we drive also..

    ToysRus has some great bargains too. Graco playpen under $100 when I last went. Sometimes they have sturdy stroller/travel systems for under $200 for those on very strict budgets but want trusty American brands.

    NTUC Xtra at AMK Hub also not too bad 'cos they have Lucky Baby playpen at $79.90 at times and stroller brands like Combi. Good for those who want NTUC link points.

    Otherwise, Baby Hyperstore at Kaki Bukit has the widest price range 'cos they sell warehouse (old models) stocks.

    If your stroller has a detachable bassinet, you can also use this as your baby's first bed.

    Pros

    Handy if you already have a bassinet as part of a stroller

    Cons

    You may spend time taking the bassinet on and off the stroller base
    You may need to buy a separate mattress

    Parents' tip: Although your stroller bassinet is suitable for night-time sleeping, your mattress may not be, so check with your retailer or manufacturer before you buy to see if you will need to buy a separate mattress. A mattress which is suitable for night-time sleeping needs to be firm, not soft, to support your baby while she sleeps.
