A Lovely Poem for you all on this wholesome day

If apples were pears
And peaches were plums
And the rose had a different name.
If tigers were bears
And fingers were thumbs
I’d love you just the same.

Let’ spread love and kindness this valentines day!

New year, New Addition?

The new year is an exciting time for everyone. We make new friends, memories and experiences. But for you this year will also add a new addition to the family!

A new baby is such a special, wonderful and joyous thing. When a little bundle of joy comes into our lives, we experience so many “firsts.” From first smiles to first laughs, to first steps. But the biggest and most important first is the first time you hold them and realize how much you love them. Having a new born in the family will bring you lots of unique and wonderful experiences. It is amazing how something so little can bring us such delight.

At Kidzeco things are all about baby. We offer support for new parents, from peer led groups, baby wearing meetings, breastfeeding support, baby massage and classes allowing parents to fight the feeling for isolation through meeting and socialising with other new parents.  We also have a wide range of baby accessories, clothes, toys and nursery furniture in-store and online.

Wishing you all a great 2022


Well, we’ve actually made it through year two of the pandemic and, considering everything, that’s no small feat. 

And now, as we turn the page toward 2022, we know that it won’t be without its challenges, but even then, it’s important to stop and smell the roses and really analyse all the things that work for us. There are things that we could improve on, and stuff that we should leave behind. Because while 2020 was all about keeping your head above water and 2021 was about getting your footing and adjusting to the new norm, 2022 is about strengthening your roots and becoming the strong amazing person we know you all can be. 

We here at Kidzeco are wishing you all a great 2022! May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good health. May all your worries fade and your successes be at the forefront! May there be one or two surprises along the way!

Have a great 2022!

Maternity Wear

Set Your Bump Free! 

 Are you pregnant but not sure where or when to buy Maternity Clothes? You’ve come to the right place.  

 When should I purchase Maternity clothing?  

No two pregnancies are the same which means when looking to buy Maternity Clothes it’s up to you. Everyone starts to wear maternity in their own time so here are some tips to help you decide if it’s time to move onto Maternity clothes:  

  1. The top button of your trousers can no longer close. 
  2. Spandex in your preferred clothing material.
  3. Your Bump starts to peek out the bottom of your shirt.
  4. Your favourite jacket wont zip up.
  5. Your day-to-day clothes feels like they are starting to squeeze you.  


If all these signs point to you needing Maternity clothes read on for tips on Essentials items, you’ll want in your Maternity Wardrobe, What size might be best for you and how to get your hands on some.  


What Size is best for me?  

Maternity size works the same as regular clothing sizes. Meaning if you’re normally a size “8”, you’ll still be a size “8” in Maternity sizes. Prenatal clothes are made with extra fabric and details to help make you feel comfortable with over the bump bands and stretchy material just to name a few. All while accentuating your bump.  


What Clothing Essentials do I need?  

You may think you need a whole new wardrobe once you need Maternity clothes but we are here to tell you that you’ll only need a few essentials to get you through, however if you would like more, we won’t judge we too love new clothes!  

You may need to wear your prenatal clothes for a few weeks after giving birth, too. They are also handing to keep around just in case there’s another pregnancy. 

With that in mind these are some basic’s we think you’ll need:  

  1. Maternity Trousers or a smart skirt for work or special occasions
  2. Two or 3 pairs of jeans or Leggings for your everyday outfits.
  3. A couple Dresses. Even if you normally don’t wear dresses you will find the extremely comfortable especially when a bump band starts to feel too tight. 
  4. Two of 3 Maternity Tops casual or smart depending on your style and work life.   
  5. Cardigan or Jacket that closes over your bump to keep you are your bump warm.  


Where to buy?  

Maternity wear can be hard to come by with most High-street stores removing this from their shop floors and having it only available to purchase online.  

Here at Kidzeco we have quality pre-loved Maternity clothes available in both our retail stores and online available here: 

If you have any questions or are looking for something in Maternity that we don’t have available please get in contact with us and we can try our best to help you out.

Food Pantry Update – Kidzeco Bathgate

Our food pantry service will now open within our  Bathgate store, Wednesday and Saturday, from 12pm till 3pm.  If you haven’t signed for a membership already you can do so via and you are eligible to join if you are currently pregnant or have at least one child aged 5 years and under.  (A gentle reminder that if you are attending the pantry to please bring your own bags).

Remember, Remember The Fifth of November!

Bonfire night, or Fireworks Night, the 5th of November, is an exciting occasion for all ages. The warm glow of the fire; the exciting crash, bang, and whirl of multi-coloured fireworks exploding in the cool autumn air – their bright, smoky trails captivating the senses and setting alight the imagination.

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has put played to what for many has been a much looked-forward-to occasion as social gatherings are severely limited in both number and scope.

Although we all have to adapt to the changing climate of these difficult times, we can do so positively, involving our children and those in our households in fun, safe activities, that celebrate the famous night and may very well grew to become cherished yearly traditions in themselves.

Below are a few suggestions of what you can do this year as family, and we would love to see what you get up to and create!

Wax Firework Painting

Wax Firework Painting is both safe, fun, and simple. Start by covering a sheet of blank white paper with your favourite wax crayon colours. These colours will eventually become your firework shapes, trails and explosions. Next, paint over everything with black acrylic paint and leave to dry. (Whilst this is happening you might want to try another of our suggested activities further down the page).

Now for the really fun bit! When your paint has dried, take a lollypop stick (or similar. We recommend lollypop sticks as they are not sharp AND you get to lick a lollypop whilst waiting) and scratch your firework shapes and trails into the now dry black paint and be amazed as the colours reveal themselves and come to life.

Why not take some photos of your children enjoying this activity as a keepsake of the fond occasion?

Bonfire Collage

Another activity to stretch those creative muscles is the Bonfire Collage. This is also a great opportunity to wrap up warm and explore your garden, or even some nearby woodland – a wonderful opportunity to talk with your children about the creatures that live there, or even to look up at the night sky (which on clear autumn nights can be particularly fascinating). This adventure is also about gathering the materials for your collage.

As you can see from the above example, with a little bit of child friendly glue and some creativity, you can use the twigs and leaves you gathered on your outdoor adventure to create something quite special indeed!

Why not set your collages against the glow of a nightlight or lamp and tell some campfire stories? Who can make the best fire-crackling sound?

Marshmallow Rockets

No bonfire night is complete without marshmallows! Get creative with this simple, fun activity by adding marshmallows to skewers (be careful not to poke yourself!) and then dip them into some melted chocolate. Add your favourite sprinkles -or, for that extra special bonfire night crackle- why not try some popping candy! An excellent treat to eat whilst telling stories around your bonfire collage campfire.

We hope these suggestions inspire you to make the most of a very different fireworks night this year and we would also love to hear what you get up to.

On Thursday the 5th our Kidzeco online shop will be offering board games and toys at reduced cost in order to further celebrate indoor fun.

Have fun and stay safe!

Temporary Closure of Kidz n Kin Community Space

UPDATE:  As of Thursday 22nd October, in line with Scottish Government and Public Health Guidance, Kidz n Kin has reopened.  
It is with regret that we must announce the immediate and temporary closure of our Kidz n Kin community space in Livingston following a positive Covid-19 test within our team. We are more confident than not, thanks to available track and trace information, that transmission of the virus occurred out with our Kidz n Kin premises, but have taken the decision nevertheless to close in order to safeguard both our team and customers. We are confident in the strict health and hygiene measures that have been in place and rigorously adhered to in every instance since reopening the facility, though have decided, again, that it is the safest and wisest decision for all concerned that our team members enter the prescribed period of self-isolation.
In light of the above, all bookings made for Kidz n Kin next week are unfortunately cancelled. Those who hold a booking will be contacted and refunds issued. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Thank you all for your understanding and your ongoing support during these difficult and uncertain times.
