Buying Baby Stuff in Deutschland

by Christina Geyer on September 30, 2007 · 30 comments

Here’s a list of websites that are either in Germany or will ship baby stuff to Germany. I’ve put an asterisk behind websites that I’ve used and been happy with (*=ordered once, **=twice, ***=three or more times). As I come across new sites, I will update this list. See also a related post, Buying Maternity and Nursing Clothes in Deutschland

I’ve ordered from 4MyBaby. Their site is in several languages and they carry gear from Fisher Price, Bumbo, etc.

2 Blythe October 2, 2007 at 8:34 pm

The link above is wrong – it’s http://www.4mybaby.de
Sorry!

The item I had the hardest time locating was an Exersaucer. I finally found one at Toys-R-Us, but I notice they don’t carry it anymore. And it’s been a lifesaver for us. So if you find one, snap it up!

3 ChristinaG October 4, 2007 at 1:09 pm

@blythe: Thanks for the link, I’ll add it to the post next time I update it!

4 ChristinaG October 12, 2007 at 11:07 pm

Just added 4MyBaby, ForYourBaby, and StillLeben to the list.

5 Merika April 6, 2008 at 2:02 pm

Add to your list http://www.babyonline.de and http://www.pinpong-online.de (prams, strollers, buggies).
Thanks for the list, now I can also order from baby-markt.de . I was afraid of it because none of my friends had never ordered there. If it was ok for you, it must be ok for me too. :)

6 Christina G April 6, 2008 at 4:55 pm

@merika: I couldn’t get either of the sites you listed to load. I’ll try again later. I can’t guarantee you won’t have any issues with Baby-Markt, but I didn’t have a problem with them. I can’t remember what I ordered from them anymore.

7 Blythe April 28, 2008 at 8:29 pm

Christina, did you know there’s a Jako-o store in the new(ish) mall in Erlangen? I love to shop there (but I don’t go very often because my wallet tends to mysteriously empty itself before I walk out the door.)

8 Christina G April 30, 2008 at 7:44 am

@blythe: I did know there was a Jako-O store there and have been wanting to make a trip. Maybe we can have lunch and hit the store together sometime?

9 Marci October 12, 2008 at 8:59 pm

Thank you so much for this article. My family & I are living here for the next 2.5 years. AND, I recently found out that I am pregnant. Before we left the states I sold, donated and/or gave away ALL of the baby stuff. SO, we have to buy EVERYTHING all over again. I am totally lost as to where to get things here. I really appreciate all the info!!! Thanks again, m.

You’re welcome. Thanks for commenting, Marci! You might also want to check out my other blog: http://www.mamasworldwide.com.

do you know of actual shops I could go to in Hanover or somewhere relatively close to me (I live in Bomlitz – near Waslrode – halfway between Hanover and Hamburg) – I went to Ikea on Saturday and plan on going to Toys R Us on THIS Saturday (but I am not sure if they have a big baby section) – I need EVERYTHING except a pack ‘n play – teehee – I also have some baby boy clothes for the first year that I bought when I went home to Texas – thanks for any help that you can give me – Sincerely, m.

12 Christina G February 6, 2009 at 12:10 am

@marci: I have never been to that area, so I’ll just throw out some shop names for you. I would look for a Baby One first, a Baby Walz second. Both are large chains and should be in both Hanover and Hamburg. Our Toys R Us has a decent baby section, so that’s a good choice too. The best baby section near us is in a large furniture store, Hiendl. Not sure if there is one near you, but you might consider asking around if there is something like that near you guys.

13 marci February 17, 2009 at 2:19 pm

Thank you so much for your reply – I will look into all of your suggestions – I just wish I could get the bedding that I want for the nursery from America WITHOUT paying an arm & a leg – it is all so different here – yet similar – teehee – thanks again for all your help – take care – xo, m.

Last year I lived in CA. At http://www.levaria.de I ordered furniture, and they deliverd them in 5 days from Germany. Great service.
And at http://www.perinas.de you’ll get very nice premie clothes.

15 Julia June 18, 2009 at 2:13 pm

I recently purchased a Boon Highchair, which is very hard to find in Germany from a site called http://www.hochstuehle.de on the internet. They focus on high chairs and have a good selection.

16 Volker Wendrich June 20, 2009 at 9:53 pm

We have an online-shop in germany with handpuppets and fingerpuppets, please visit us. Thx.

17 Nina February 5, 2010 at 5:53 pm

I’d like to suggest http://www.butterzart.com/ for your list of children’s clothing shops in Germany…

Hi – I’m an English mum and my husband and I have designed some kids cutlery and other kids products that we’re now looking to sell in Germany (they’re on sale in John Lewis over here). Can you recommend the best stores for this? I.e. those which have physical stores rather than websites? Great site/blog you have by the way!

19 Anzug für Babys November 20, 2010 at 8:49 am

Danke, das ist wirklich großes.

20 Johanna November 24, 2010 at 6:07 pm

Dear Christina, we just found another baby shop witch is selling rellay cute baby cloth. The Name of the shop is Babylotta. You can find it online here: http://www.babylotta-shop.de

I think they would be happy if you list them too.

Many Greets,

Johanna

21 Anneliese Lechner January 9, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Dear Christina!

It would be great if you could mention also my little Internetshop on your website;

I established a little boutique in 1981 in Bregenz, Austria (close to the german and swiss border); Meanwhile “Bambini” is well known in our area;

2006 our webshop http://www.bim-bam-bini.at was founded. The funny thing: we have only 5 percent customers from austria, 80 percent from germany and the rest from all over the world (USA, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia and many european countries)

Due to the fact that we are located only 5 kilometers from the german border we ship the goods for germany from Lindau (Bavaria).

Our most important brand is Catimini (from France) – where we offer about 350 to 450 different styles per season – so the funny thing is that we also have many clients from france.

22 Wendy January 30, 2011 at 12:14 am

Perhaps you want to list our onlineshop http://www.die-rehkids.de. We sell a few special baby products of manufacturers which are little-known in Germany.

23 Kristina June 30, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Dear Christina,

there is this very nice online-store GREEN AVENUE in Germany (though the site is only in German) but staff speaks English and they will help out on the phone…

They have a great variety in baby stuff (clothes, accessoires, furniture, gifts and toys). They also ship to most countries in Europe…

Just have a look, it is really nice ;-)

Hello!
What a helpful website this has been! I do have one questions. Do any of the stores accept VAT forms? It’s something that allows military/DoD employees to purchase items on the economy, tax free. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks so much!

27 carolin July 20, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Cristina, so amazing and such a complete practical guide you have done here! Danke! vielen Dank! I will tell my relatives to bring me the stuff I can buy from here, Buenos Aires, thanks to this page!
Abrazo!
