When Agapebabies approached me for a review on their online shopping website, honestly I was sceptical of yet another run-of-the-mill shopping site. These days, it is not easy to stand out from the crowd as there are so many online shops ready to woo the growing number of internet-age shoppers.
But after a quick browse of Agapebabies website, I was impressed with the clean cut look of the site, the simple categorisation of products and the wide range of goods offered. From organic food to California Baby skincare and even mummies’ cleanser products, this website promise to bring you the premium and authentic brands at affordable prices. Recently they also partnered with The Sunshine Kids which is an online kids fashion departmental store. It stocks up mainly girly dresses at the moment. It is understood that Agapebabies is looking to expand further as a multi-store concept and will continue to add more brands and even stores in time to come.
Cut-the-chase: I agreed to shop with them! (I possibly would even if I am not invited to review!)
It is great that the store doesn’t just stock babyish products. As a mummy of 2, my boys are almost 4 years apart and so it is helpful to be able to purchase different age groups products on the same site!
Agapebabies prided itself in specialising in California Baby product ranges and just nicely, I needed to stock up on some shower items for the boys. Purposefully, I compared prices between some brick & mortar shops and other online shopping sites. Glad to conclude that Agagebabies’ prices for this brand is highly competitive. I added a California Baby The Basic Tote (S$24.90) to my cart! Great for the travel trip that we are planning months ahead!
I was surprised to see that many new products and brands were added weekly to their ranges. I found a reputable brand : Thermos Foogo leak-proof stainless steel food jar (S$36.31) which comes in handy as Eizac is in the stage of feeding on solid home-cooked food. It is in a nifty 10oz size which is just nice for a lunch meal for my 18th month boy. They have so many cute designs Thermos (Dora, Mickey, Ironman and Hello Kitty)!
The shopping experience was seamless. It was easy to navigate through the site; there were no glitches faced. There were so many products to choose from (2000 products from 100 brands!). Look at that: (!!)
Perhaps my only grouse is that I need more shopping money to buy everything which catches my eye! My shopping haul came in through a local courier delivery within 2 days of placing the orders. Such speedy delivery is helpful when you need the products urgently. Do note that there is an option for normal mail delivery which will take 1-7 working days. It will be a cheaper alternative as compared to courier service.
There is free local courier delivery if you purchase S$80 and above (honestly, not the cheapest delivery option in the online market but I believe this might change once they get bigger and can transfer delivery cost-savings to consumers).
