One of the largest independent nursery retailers in the North, Bump and Babes (owned by IT Jack) is an online shop that covers all the needs a new arrival to the family requires. Their impressive showroom in Keighley offers a welcoming environment for customers to have a look at their products sourced from around the world. Bump and Babes are returning to raise money for upcoming contracts and projects as they look to expand regionally.

Catering to the needs of parents and babies alike

Established in 1986 and acquired by IT Jack in 2014, Bump and Babes is a family-run, child-friendly business. We specialise in child seats, but stock a vast range of products from pushchairs to nursery furniture, bathing and changing facilities to safety equipment. Our service is primarily online, meaning that expecting/new parents can suit the shopping experience to their schedules and take the hassle out of the process.

If customers want to come and see the products first-hand, we are proud to be one of the largest baby and nursery showrooms in the UK, with a massive 5000 square feet display, as well as being the only store that displays all the big brands like iCandy, Silver Cross, Mamas and Papas, Maxi-Cosi, East Cost, Out n About, Chicoo, Joolz, Uppababy, Baby Style, Obaby, plus many more. Our friendly staff have more than 10 years of experience and extensive knowledge about the products and safety installation. We are active on social media and encourage people to get in touch and drop in!

Our plan is to tap into the growth and success of the online retail industry, as well as increased sophistication and scale of the baby and nursery sector. For example, multi-child strollers are classified as fastest growing product in the UK, with 37% growth. Following our previous raise with Crowd2Fund, we used the funds to increase our stock and digital marketing; now, we're looking to facilitate exciting upcoming contracts and projects as we move further forward with our growth plans.

A. Most of the products are designed in UK and manufactured in China. But, very few products are British designed and manufactured in Europe. As of now we don’t know how Brexit will impact these products.

A. Good question. A no-deal Brexit will have impact on any business. We anticipate that the impact will be minimal on us as we are selling mandatory products like car seats and push chairs and our main place of business is UK, Mainland and Ireland.
