Basel baby equipment shops

I've just arrived in Basel and am looking for baby shops in order to buy some items such as a high chair and door bouncer. I've found the forum posts with regards to internet shops, and have also looked on Basel Children's Trust, but haven't yet had any luck finding an actual physical shop.
Many thanks!

In Kleinbasel there is Jäger’s Babyland on Feldbergstrasse 44, 4057 Basel
Telefon 061-691 64 88 www.jaeger.baby-rose.ch

I had a friend who went in there when 8 months pregnant and came out again kitted up with everything she could possible need, plus quite a bit that she probably didn't, and a large dent in her credit card. She said they spoke very good English and they delivered the larger items.

Re: Basel baby equipment shops

I have also since come across:
toy r us / babies r us at the shopping centre www.stucki-shopping.ch (cheaper stuff, but wide range of equipment, and assistants didn't speak english)
and
Nuggi Haus, Aeschenvorstadt 56, 4051, Basel (also does clothes and lovely toys, on the more expensive side, but a good range of equip)
Jager Babyland were able to order in the high chair that I wanted in 2-4 weeks, whereas Nuggie Haus quoted 6-8 weeks.

Re: Basel baby equipment shops

If you have a car (or Mobility membership) you also want to check out shops across the border. People have recommended this:
http://www.baby-walz.de/L/0/sid/140/...s.19140.0.html
and there are also several closeby in France.

There's Nuggihuus near Aeschenplatz.

I laugh every time I see the name, it should have been called Post-Nuggihuus

I didn't find much difference. Bought 2 Römer car seats, here they are Chf 290 each. In Konstanze they were Euro 235 each, about Chf 280.--.

Of course you get your tax back, -19% German + 8% Swiss, not to mention the rather favourable (in Customs favour of course) exchange rate. To get the tax back however you need to get the forms signed/stamped and THEN return to the shop for a refund but you cannot return directly after customs as this would be considered as a re-import. You need to drop the goods off somewhere, then return.

Not really worth the hastle in my opinion.

Yes I agree, we found the price difference for strollers really insignificant for all the hassle.

Boston-to-Basel has made some interesting contributions
Re: Basel baby equipment shops

Just in case anyone stubles upon this post and tries to go, Jager Babyland is no longer.

Not sure if they moved, but they're definitely no longer at the location mentioned above. There's now an empty storefront =(

Re: Basel baby equipment shops

Thanks for the update, I hadn't noticed! There is also "drei käse Hoch", which has 2 ships on Spalenberg. One focuses on large equipment eg buggies, cots, the other smaller gear+clothing. It has a high end feel to what it stocks.
