Wirral’s largest baby emporium, Babylicious, is celebrating 35 years — with a sale offering up to 70% off their wide range of baby products!
Babylicious, the family run independent business, on Market Street in Hoylake has won countless awards over the years and has become a favourite of celebrities and footballers’ wives.
From prams, cots and clothing to teddies and toys, Babylicious is a 2,000 sq. ft Aladdin’s cave of all things babies and little people! Pioneers of ground-breaking baby products, Babylicious stocks the latest and highest quality trends — whilst Owner Ian Davidson is the Baby Product Association’s only Independent Judge in the UK.
Whether you’re looking for cute cuddly toys, adorable clothing or the latest prams and car seats — Babylicious is the place to go for quality. The Hoylake store currently stocks the state of the art Cybex E Priam — the world’s first motorised electric pram — and top of the range Peg Perago car seats, whilst also offering big discounts ex display products.
From items as little as £1 to designer brands costing in their thousands, Babylicious offers something for all budgets across two large floors and has a private shopping appointment service. Having just celebrated their 35 years, the family business is still going strong and is offering a celebratory sale of up to 70% off all in-store items.
Owner Ian said:
“It all started over 35 years ago really, as my mum Joan sold baby clothing on markets all around the North West and Wales. When she started doing really well, my Dad Tony agreed to open a store in Moreton in 1988 and that’s when Babylicious was officially born– a lot has changed since then in the industry though, that’s for sure.”
Since Babylicious was founded, the baby product industry has seen lots of new brands come through, technological advancements and more safety regulations. Babylicious have led the way in the quality and regulation of the latest products, resulting in Ian becoming a key judge for the Baby Product Association, and they also specialise in premature clothing.
“We’ve always stocked the highest quality products and have won awards for doing so — we’ve also been nominated for Best Independent Nursery Store In UK. Quality is something my Mum has insisted on from the start. She’s still very much involved in the business however my Dad sadly passed away a few years ago — we keep a photo of him in the shop and I think he’d be proud we’re still going strong.”
Reflecting on their 35 years’ trading, Ian and Joan estimate that they’ve served around 175,000 customers and have supplied to customers in over 50 countries across the globe through their online shop. They have raised in excess of £100,000 for charity over the years and they are carbon neutral — stocking environmentally friendly products and planting trees.
“It’s crazy to think how many people we’ve served and how many babies we’ve supplied clothing, toys and products to. It’s so lovely to know we’ve played a role in babies’ lives growing up. We’ve been really successful for 35 years now and we’ve always given back too — that’s so important to us. We’ve always donated money and clothes to various baby, children and baby loss charities.”
The store in celebrating 35 years as the largest baby emporium in Wirral with a sale that offers up to 70% off their wide range of products. From Cybex and Bebecar to Dolce and Junior Jones, at Babylicious you can find the highest quality and best value clothing, toys, teddies, prams, car seats, accessories and much more!
“Like any industry, it’s very competitive these days — especially with so much online shopping. We like to think our reputation carries us through though — people know they’re getting quality with us. We’ve got some exciting plans in the pipeline to take things to the next level so watch this space in the next couple of years.”
