A one-stop shop for all things baby, Just Kidding has opened its first store in Qatar. To say the least, it certainly makes bringing up baby a whole lot easier. The emphasis is on quality, and founders Ben Boenk and Annemarie Retera set up the store after noticing a lack of parenting expertise in the region. Since, they have scoured the world to bring you the best of the industry’s leading brands.
There’s everything from wall stickers and hanging mobiles to colourful lamp shades and dreamy, glowing night lights. There’s even a soft toy version of a wall-mounted animal head (choose from a moose, cow or sheep). Mostly, however, the shop, and its website, is stocked with a range of high-quality essentials.
It has an array of travel cots, for example, which any parent heading home for the holidays will know is an absolute necessity. The site covers bedtimes, bath times, toys and more. This is the place to go for prams, complete with all mod-cons; nappy bags with more pockets than you could possibly need; Fort Knox-secure playpens; state-of-the-art car seats; baby food purifyers for the health-conscious; educational toys; baby bottles; potty training supplies; baby shower gifts; good old cuddly toys... the list goes on. If you need it, Just Kidding has it.
Open Sat-Thu 10am-10pm, Fri 1pm-10pm. The Gate Mall, Omar Al Mukhtar Street, www.justkidding-me.com
