About Us

Welcome to Bumpstart Babyshop.

We are the Biggest Independent Nursery Shop in Buckinghamshire, and have just celebrated our 25th Anniversary, having opened our shop in 1993.  

Bumpstart is a bricks and mortar shopkeeper.  We know that shopping for your baby can be an extremely confusing time.   We therefore make sure that we sell and source first-class baby equipment: quality goods, at reasonable prices, from a real building where customers can come in, look, touch, ask questions, receive expert advice, try things out and then make an informed decision about what to buy.  We offer a friendly, personal service, giving you time to ask your questions to help you make the right choice for you, your baby, and your budget, rather than buying with a hurried 'click'.   All our staff at Bumpstart are highly trained, and we take a lot of trouble to familiarise ourselves with the products we sell.   We have parking right outside our shop, so can even try putting prams in your car boots to see if they will fit, and we are always happy to fit any car seat you are considering purchasing from us.  By doing it our way, we offer reassurance, good advice and a passion for the products we sell.  We would say that was money well spent! 

Bumpstart has a small online presence, but that’s how we plan to stay. It’s what marks us out from the rest.  We’re different because we believe absolutely that the best way to buy baby equipment for the most precious thing in your life – your baby – is to buy it from a trained professional and not from a “box-shifter”.  Would an online shop store your equipment for you, once you’ve bought it and offer payment plans to spread the cost?  Would they build your pram for you too, if requested?  I don’t think so, but at Bumpstart, we do!  We always try to help our customers in anyway that we can and that includes operating an aftersales service including a free loan wheeled goods* system too!

Bumpstart is situated in a quirky converted tractor shed on our working family farm just outside Whaddon (between the village and the A421 roundabout). We are 10 minutes drive from Central Milton Keynes and Buckingham, and about 15 minutes drive from junctions 13 and 14 off the M1.  Our postcode is MK17 0LR

We really look forward to meeting you very soon. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries on any of the above, and we will do our best to provide an answer for you.  You can contact us at team@bumpstartbabyshop.co.uk or through our Facebook and Instagram pages. 

With very best wishes The Bumpstart Team
