Bumps to Babes is Hong Kong's first superstore for expectant mothers and parents of young children, with a range of products for youngsters up to the age of eight.

The store prides itself in being a one-stop shop, selling just about everything a parent and child may need for the early years.

With more than 2,000 items, in categories such as maternity, nursery, toys, pushchairs and car seats, bathing and changing, feeding and bedroom, quality is of the essence. Bumps to Babes stocks top European and American brands, such as Avent, Britax, Graco, Maclaren, Mamas & Papas and phil & teds, with accessory and toy brands that include Mustela, Start-rite, Early Learning Centre and Grobag at reasonable prices.

Whether parents are looking for a bottle or diaper, a cot or car seat, baby food or child-friendly household products, browsing through the spacious Horizon Plaza outlet is a treat, as customers are spoilt for choice.

As the warm weather is finally here, outdoor toys for toddlers have become popular with parents who have a garden, patio, balcony or outdoor space. New products this season include the Crazy Golf set and My First Tag.

Old favourites such as the giant snakes and ladders mat, and giant football will keep children entertained for hours.

For more traditional fun, such as swimming, there are new items such as the Double Fun Activity Pool which squirts out water from one pool and has a shade over the other.

For the latest in scooters, the Maxi Micro Scooter T-Bar is sure to be a popular item with youngsters this summer.

The store also stocks a wide range of must-haves for the beach, from traditional buckets and spades to stylish swimwear for babies and children, and hats that protect against ultraviolet radiation.

Children's summer essentials also are not complete without a safe insect repellent such as ones from Mike Mozzie and other makers.

To stay cool and looking good while pregnant this spring/summer, the new collections of maternity wear have just arrived from brands such as Sono Vaso and Bebe2be, and for new mothers, there are selections of nursing tops and bras.

Parents can also kit their children and babies out in the latest summer styles in clothes and shoes.
