Let's Talk Baby with Walmart Canada

Monday, November 24, 2014

So, I have this problem. I like to shop. More specifically, I like to shop for kids. Whether it's kids' toys, baby clothes, books, or more specifically, toys, I just. Can't. Stop. The good news is that, since my brother and his wife first welcomed their baby girl into the world nearly three years ago, I have been able to pass along bin after bin of my kids' gently used clothing and some of their old toys that were still in good condition. We even passed along our stroller and playpen as well.

When I compare what I had purchased, I noticed that I had bought a lot of clothing for my daughter, because really, those baby girl outfits are too cute to resist. For my son, however, I had purchased more practical bigger ticket items that I was hesitant to buy the first time around, such as a playpen with changing station. But boy, was it ever worth it! I wish I had known that the Graco Pack n Play Playard would have been a saving grace for me. I would have invested in one much sooner so I could have taken advantage of all the benefits of having one with my firstborn. But being a first-time parent, I was unsure if it was worth the expense.

Wouldn't it have been great, though, to have had someone available in-store to help us make more practical decisions and determine which playard would best suit our needs? Someone whose sole purpose it was to help answer any and all questions when planning a baby registry or preparing baby's nursery?


Fortunately, parents-to-be across Canada can now plan their shopping lists more accordingly with the help of in-store specialists. With the aim of offering a better shopping experience for new and expecting parents, Walmart Canada baby departments will feature "Let's Talk Baby" kiosks where you can speak to specialists who will provide support and product knowledge on everything baby. These specialists will also be equipped with tablets for easy access to the Walmart baby registry and Walmart.ca. With a wide selection of baby products from everyday basics to baby gear essentials and nursery necessities, both moms and dads can breathe a sigh of relief knowing they can find a helping hand at Walmart.

Beginning this November, in-store specialists will be available at the "Let's Talk Baby" kiosks from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Tuesdays at select stores as well as on Thursdays during the first three weeks.* For a full list of dates and to find a store in your area, please visit http://www.walmartlivebetter.ca/letstalkbaby.

*Dates subject to change.
