If you’ve ever shopped for baby gear online, you’ve probably heard of this month’s featured boutique – Snuggle Bugz. And, while their online presence and product selection is amazing, there’s nothing like shopping at one of their retail stores.
Snuggle Bugz is family owned and operated and, over the years, has expanded to include three retail locations. It was started in 2006 by Ben and Tanya Burmaster, a husband and wife team who had a vision to provide a quality baby store that would be inviting and informative, where new parents would feel at ease asking questions and choosing products for their children.
You can tell by the many categories listed on their website that they carry a huge range of baby and toddler items. I can say with confidence that, if you need it – they’ve got it! From cloth diapers and strollers to travel gear and nursery décor, there are a lot of great products to choose from at Snuggle Bugz.
Some of my favourite picks include Firefly Kids Lighting (shown below); BEABA feeding accessories; Pehr Designsnursery accessories (below); Deglingos stuffed toys; and Wubbanub Soothie Pacifiers – the reindeer (below) is exclusive to Snuggle Bugz, and would make a sweet holiday accessory for your little one.
For all you shoe-aholics out there, they even carry Stuart Weitzman black patent boots for baby – a splurge, yes… but I know of some shoe-loving Mamas that won’t be able to resist! And, since hockey season is in full swing, if you’ve got an NHL fan in your house, you may want to check out the First Time Fan line of baby NHL gear, too.
If you’re in the market for a stroller, take a peek at the Baby Jogger City Select Titanium Combo, a Snuggle Bugz exclusive. It features a silver frame and titanium material, with a second seat and two snack trays. Another exclusive is the Giro Fresco Chrome highchair by Bloom. Snuggle Bugz is the only retailer in eastern Canada to carry this amazing chair that grows with your child from newborn to eight years of age – and comes in nine colour combinations!
While the product selection at Snuggle Bugz is out-of-this-world, the thing I love even more is their commitment to child safety. They have created a series of videos to help new parents with topics ranging from sleep sack usage and safety to the proper installation of car seats. And if you visit their Facebook page, you’ll see lots of events, including car seat safety chats that answer parents’ questions in real time. It’s no wonder they have over 400 five-star reviews from customers and 44,000+ fans!
And now there’s something else for their customers to rave about – Nestled by Snuggle Bugz. When designing nurseries for their three beautiful children, Ben and Tanya found pieces that inspired them and that they hoped would inspire their children as well. They wanted to ensure their babies’ first rooms were a special place not just for sleeping but a magical place of wonderment and discovery. It is with this in mind that Nestled was born. With over 50 beautiful nursery furniture pieces on display, by great brands such as Natart, Dutailier, and AP Industries, Nestled by Snuggle Bugz features one of the largest showcases in Canada and is located beside Snuggle Bugz in Burlington, ON.
If you haven’t already experienced Snuggle Bugz for yourself, visit them in any of their southern Ontario locations – Burlington, Milton or London. If you’re not close, don’t fret – their website is chock full of all the goodness you’ll find in store!
