Kidzeco is a social enterprise based in West Lothian with shops in both Bathgate and Livingston, as well as a fun-filled community space and café, Kidz n Kin, also based in Livingston. We were born in 2010 and set up for families who want to buy high quality preloved children’s clothes, toys and equipment at an affordable price.
In addition to our shops we also have several projects designed to help you and your little one’s live the happiest, healthiest lives possible. These include Wean The Weanz, Kidz Knasherz, Kitchin Kin, Fivez for Fridayz, and KidzStart.
We also have a wide range of baby and children’s classes, as well as a party space for hire at a reasonable cost.
