The Best Places to Buy Pre-Loved Baby Goods in Singapore

In a city as expensive as Singapore, buying pre-loved baby goods is a no brainer. Let’s face it, babies grow so quickly most of the paraphernalia will hardly have been used anyway!

Where to buy pre-loved baby goods in Singapore

When you’re pregnant with your first offspring and in full nesting overdrive, it can be difficult to overcome the desire to buy the shiny new everything. However, take it from a mama who has been there, done that and lamented the purchase of an expensive t-shirt, many of the “must have” baby goods you simply can’t resist turn out to be a complete waste of hard-earned cash. Resist the devil on your shoulder who simply INSISTS that new is best, and consider purchasing secondhand nursery furniture, toys and accessories. There’s a load of stuff available for sale online in Singapore, many of which is in fantastic condition. Think of it as a college fund boost!

Here’s our roundup of the best places to buy pre-loved baby goods in Singapore.

Preloved Baby Goods

Describe themselves As:

Mobile Apps

Bakipa

Bakipa app singapore

Who needs the packed-to-the-rafters baby fair? In addition to being a great mobile marketplace for kid’s and baby goods, Bakipa also includes services such as nannies and education. The app is great for first-time mamas because it doubles as online parenting community where mums and dads can exchange tips and socialise.

An easy way to shop without spending valuable time scrolling through hundred of items you are not interested in, just set up your alert and relax!

 

Carousel

Carousell app singapore

Carousel is also a mobile based app that makes it quick and easy to sell and by pre-loved goods. Sellers can take a quick photo with their phone and upload the item instantly for the community to see. Buyers can join a group that is the most closely matched with their interests…for most of us that is the baby & kids group, of course!
