The Inquisitive Toy Company and Inquisitive Baby
The Inquisitive Toy Company and Inquisitive Baby in Wolfville have weathered quite the spring, but they are back in action! After two devastating floods in March, they reopened in April, only to have yet another flood close their stores again. “We had a very successful grand reopening on Saturday, April 15, only to have a third flood from another apartment’s hot water tank the next evening. So, three floods in six weeks, two new floors, and one very disappointed Eddie, our dog, who wasn’t able to come to the store for quite a while” say owners Miranda and Jake. The stores are now open as usual and just in time for Mother’s Day.
If you’re new to the parenting game, Inquisitive Baby has more than their selection of baby products and gear to offer. Every Tuesday the store hosts ‘Eat Sleep Poop: A Parent and Infant Group’ at 11am. It’s a place where parents and their babies (under 1yr) can meet, enjoy adult conversation, and have a snack. “It’s been very well received and attendance has grown exponentially since it started in January” says Jake. “Laura Morrison, our postpartum doula on staff, does a great job facilitating and finding guest speakers. It’s very informal and we encourage new parents with kids under one to visit.”
Between Inquisitive Baby and The Inquisitive Toy Company, there should be something in store for any Mom you are shopping for. “Everything at Inquisitive Baby will make new moms’ and dads’ lives easier” Jake says. “In particular, any of the All Things Jill line of creams, balms, and wellness products. They’re organic and handmade in Canada. Perfect to make a new mom feel her best on her special day. Next door at Inquisitive Toy Company, there are lots of fun board games moms can play with their families or puzzles she can do to unwind. Looking for the perfect Mothers’ Day gift? Come see us!”
There couldn’t be a better time to shop locally and support this great community-minded business.
