OC Tykes Baby Gear Store

In the past 5 1/2 years I have gone through about five different strollers. With the exception of our Bob Revolution Jogger, I really haven’t been completely satisfied with any of them. If I would have known about OC Tykes baby gear store when I was shopping for my stroller, I am sure I would have picked the right one out of the gate and likely saved a lot of money.
OC Tykes is a premier baby gear store located in downtown San Clemente. Specializing in baby gear, their expert staff offers free consultations to make sure you choose the right product to fit your unique needs.
If by chance you are in the market to invest in a new piece of gear and go in this month (by 12/31/11) you will receive 15% off any one full priced item with mention of Tiny Oranges. That can save you some serious buckeroos if you are looking at a stroller or car seat mamas! So stash away that Christmas gift cash, and make your way down there after the holidays to look around!
Back to the expert consults, interestingly enough, owner Keli Johnson told me, 9 times out of 10 parents will come in with the intention to purchase one item, and end up walking out with another after meeting with their experts.
Keli believes that a good stroller should not just last you for baby’s first year, but should have the capability to take you from the newborn stage up until 4 or 5 years.
This was definitely not true in my case, but I honestly had NO clue what I was doing when I bought my first stroller. I went to a large chain store which shall remain nameless and the associates didn’t know one stroller from the next. Sigh, OC Tykes, if I only had known about you…but now I am happy that my readers will!
Purchasing a baby gear product is an investment. Which is why I love the fact that they allow consumers to rent it, try it or buy it. Want to see if it fits in your car easily? No problem, they will help you load it up. Want to try the product for the afternoon or longer so you can give it a test drive? They happily allow customers to take it for a stroll or rent it before buying.
Have friends with kids coming into OC to visit?
OC Tykes has a wide array of baby gear available for RENT! Now families don’t have to schlep gear on a plane. Simply check out the items available for rent and OC Tykes will take care of your baby needs while on vacation in Orange County. Such a great idea.
In addition to their vast selection of baby gear, you will also find their store full of baby accessories and mommy favorites like Melissa & Doug toys (currently 20% off for a holiday sale), aden + anais, diaper bags, and other gift goodies for the holiday season.
Again mamas, shop this month and receive 15% off any full priced item!
With an investment as big as a stroller or car seat, and an item you are hopefully going to be able to use for a very long time, doesn’t it make sense to visit a showroom like OC Tykes that can answer all of your questions, and probably some you hadn’t even thought of? I definitely think so.
Once a month OC Tykes also holds a special car seat installation event where you can come and get your car seat installed CORRECTLY by a car seat safety expert. It includes a one hour private training, and if you purchase your car seat from OC Tykes, the cost is only $35 for the installation. Such a deal. Regular price for this event is $50.
