The 9 Best Baby Stores In Toronto

We've scoured the streets of Toronto for the best local stores for all your baby and kids needs!

Shopping for a new baby is a huge expense. If you are going to be crying over your next Visa bill anyway, it's nice to keep some of that money in the community by shopping local. Toronto's local collection of baby store's offer products and services you can't find at places like Walmart, Baby Gap and Babies "R" Us. They offer everything from super cute designer clothes to second-hand gems. 

Here are our picks for the best baby stores in Toronto. 

Macklem’s Baby Carriage & Toys

Macklem's Baby Carriages & Toys not only sells carriages and toys but tons of other necessities as well, including products that are difficult to find elsewhere in Canada. 

They have the typical basic needs gear like glass baby bottles for people with concerns about plastic.

The store's Yelp reviews include several five star ratings and the store doesn't have one bad review.

Macklem's also repairs baby strollers in house so you don't have to send away. They are the only store in Canada that does full refurbishment on heirloom baby prams. 

The display of the High Park store isn't ideal. It's kind of crowded. They also don't have an online store. 

Baby On The Hip

Baby on the Hip is a green, eco-minded baby boutique in Leslieville, the meca of Toronto babies. They have an online store and offer free shipping on orders over $75.

Since Baby on the Hip is a green store, the staff is knowledgeable about BPA-free products and avoiding toxins.

Product wise, they have some cool and very unqiue stuff, such as casting kits for baby feet and hands.

They will install your car seat for you if buy it there and they offer free shipping across Canada on orders of $40 or more.

You can also do a baby registry online. 

Advice From A Caterpillar 

Advice from a Caterpillar is Rosedale's primer designer children's store. So, it's expensive. 

One downfall to online shopping there is that are a lot of products on their websites are sold out.

However, they do most likely have the best baby shoe collection in the city. The shoes are pretty much the Jimmy Choo's of children's footwear.

The sale section is pretty good with discounts ranging from 50 to 75 percent off. You can definitely steal a deal like a Stella McCartney gift box for $36 (Pretty darn reasonable for a baby shower gift).

Baby Rama 

Baby Rama has an Ajax location but nothing in the core of the city. If you are from the east side  or even north Toronto, it might be easier and cheaper to drive half an hour to the store rather than go downtown (FREE PARKING! Remember parking lots, downtowners?). Another bonus to that is Baby Rama, while not a cute downtown shop, is signficantly cheaper than most stores in the city core. 

The large store allows for a section of things like seven different types of BPA-free, 100% medical-grade silicone teethers as well as really great prices on children's clothes like 99 cent sock packages. They have a great section of replacement parts for strollers as well as maternity pillows. 

They have a MOB Club with free membership so they will send you sales offers.

Moms To Be And More 

Moms To Be and More is located in midtown and offers free parking. It has hard to find products like infant lifejackets, scratch-mittens and sound machines. 

Clothing prices aren't super low but they have some good ideas like three packages of bodysuits for $19.99.

There website and baby registry are both well-organized. They also have a rewards program. 


In reviews for Diaper-ezz people mention they love the section of cloth diapers. Although, cloth diapers are expensive because they are reusable, the prices at Diaper-eez are competitive with other stores. According to the store's calculations, the average baby will require about 2,500 or 6.8 changes in a year so cloth can be a cheaper option. 

They have starter packs for infants and older babies. 

There is also a great section of baby shoes and products for expecting moms.

This Little Piggy 

This Little Piggy on Queen Street West is great for infants. The store is owned by mom Faye and JUST celebrated it's 1st birthday! The store full is full of Faye's favoruite products, so you know they must be great! 

They have a variety of slings and swaddle gear as well as various baby designers such as Bridge the BumpMini SoulsOllie Jones ClothingUncle Peter's MAN and Rumour & Gus. You can even shop via their Facebook page, where they seem to have developed a very good mommy community. 

Love Me Do Baby & Maternity

Love Me Do Baby and Maternity is an environmental baby store located in Liberty Village and offers free parking. It is a high-end eco store so it is a little on the pricey side. They have plently of goodies for decorating a baby room. 

They gift wrap and deliver products bought through a baby registry for people who cannot make it to the store before an event. They offer classes and workshops. 

Bumbleberry Kids

Bumbleberry purchases second hand clothes and other products from parents who recieve cash or store credits in return their goods. Then, according Anne the owner, the store employees look for the lowest price of that product on the Internet and then offer the product at half that retail price to their customers. They have some really great deals, especially if you have some gently used clothes to bring in to get a store credit. 

The store removes all chemicals, like flame retardants and stiffening agents, from the clothing making them softer and safer. Since the store depends on people bringing in products, the selection can either be great or bare.
