Best children’s stores for babies’ accessories, kids’ clothes and more
Singapore brand Hegen has everything you need to feed your little one, from bottles and breast pumps to beautiful starter kits. Its iconic square-round feeding bottles, with their Press-To-Close Twist-To-Open lids, have been a favourite among parents at this baby store since 2015.
The popularity stems from the practical, high-quality and multifunctional products. For example, you can switch between interchangeable lids for expressing, storing and feeding all within a single Hegen bottle. And, once your baby has outgrown the feeding stage, the bottle transforms into a storage container for semi-solids, snacks or even kitchen spices.
Whether it’s for yourself or an upcoming baby shower, Hegen’s beautiful starter sets are lovely gift options. The bottles can even be personalised with a name and selected print. Plus, the company also provides education, full lactation consultations and training services at its Hegen Lactation Centre. In short, these are baby products that have been designed with thought, experience and care to satisfy the needs for mums.

Children’s shoes in Singapore
Salt-Water Sandals are perfect for Singapore kids (and big kids)! These children’s shoes can get completely wet without the leather warping or cracking – just rinse them off and leave to air-dry, and they’ll be as good as new again the following day.
Back in the 1940s, Walter Hoy, a father in St Louis, Missouri, fashioned the first simple pair of sandals out of scrap leather for his daughter. Since then, they’ve become a firm favourite amongst families from Tokyo to Helsinki and London to Perth.
The enduring classic Salt-Water style can be punched up a notch if you choose a juicy fruit colour, like the patent yellow, shiny fuchsia, turquoise or cherry-print leather varieties.

Beautiful baby wear
Want all-natural, organic, eco-friendly and sustainable baby essentials?
Singapore-grown brand the baby closet began with the objective of curating high-quality organic baby essentials that are soft and gentle, and can be handed down through generations. At the same time, the focus was on using sustainable methods and only natural materials.
Many businesses get started out of a personal need and this is one of them. The business owners had their first baby a few years ago and they wanted what was best for their little girl. They found, among other things, that many of the clothes they purchased just didn’t last; they also realised how much waste there was from this kind of fast fashion.
The waste was not only in the manufacturing process but the packaging too. This is why they evaluate and source packing material individually and extensively. This involves using recycled, reusable and recyclable materials, and removing anything that might be unnecessary.
Their products are individually tested and handpicked; they’re also eco-friendly, chemical free and non-toxic, making them gentle on the most delicate and sensitive skin.
