Store events are great!This store is so much more than retail... they have a great play area and lots of weekly and monthly events at all the locations. Stroller Speed Dating? BRILLIANT! Gearing Up for Baby night? AWESOME! Storytimes, craft days are a hit too! they have their calendar on their website for each store so you can always see what's going on and ALL THE EVENTS ARE FREE! COOL!
Great StoreI think this is a great store, I do agee that the store is a little bit messy but if you are expecting your first it is still work going there as the staff is very helpful and knowledegable. They don't have the Bugabook stroller because it is a WASTE OF MONEY! The only problem is the registry and that is because you can't update it yourself. This is a great store overall and I would go back there again and again even though it isn't close to my home.
Great ExperienceWe are expecting our first and turned to the staff for some help, thoughts and such. They answered all of our (silly) questions and were VERY helpful - we will be going back for further needs of gear, toys, etc. We especially like the small business feel - the toys on the ground, kids sitting down to play with them, etc. - as compared to the mega-stores - anyone looking for a lesser experience can surely find it elsewhere.
A Great Store, Nice To Support A Local BusinessI'm a regular customer at Magic Beans and I've always been really impressed. The one time I had a small problem with a product, they were amazing. I called them and they handled it right away, no problems at all. They delivered the missing part to my door - I never even had to go into the store. Personally, I'm always amazed by how helpful everyone is, even when the store is really busy (and it does get very busy). I can't imagine why anyone would want to go online or to the Right Start when there's a great place like this right in town.
Item Purchased Previously OpenedBought a baby highchair that was missing screws (clearly the package had been opened). Manager not particularly helpful. Finally gave us a new package of screws. Driving back and forth to store - NOT worth it. Next time, will buy baby gear on-line or at another local store e.g. wild child in arlington, or the right start.
Vastly ImprovedI previously wrote a negative review, citing the lack of organization and haphazardness of the store, but they seem to have addressed these problems over the last few monthes. I have been in the store several times over the last few weeks and have been duly impressed upon each visit. It has definitetly become a top-notch Boston area toy and gear store.
Magic Beans Is The Only Store I Would Purchase ItemsMagic Beans is so unique and has made such a difference for my baby and my family. The people working there are so knowledgable and willing to help but not pushy. The gear is top quality (even without the bugaboo) as they carry everything else. I must add that the owner is incredibly personable and always willing to put the customer first. As for the store being crowded????, I think they do a phenomenal job of cleaning up after the many children who come in and out everyday.
Total MessThe store is a total mess, with hardly any room to walk, let alone with a stroller. That, combined with the fact that toys are always all over the ground, it is impossible to move around with your baby, They really need to work on the display and organization. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable but frazzled, often watching after their own children. The play area in the back is nice.
I Agree - a bit chaoticYes, this store has a great selection of really unique stuff, but it is always seeming to be chaotic and messy in there. The staff seems harried, and frazzled. They are definitely knowledgeable and they seem happy to be there. Great stuff though, they just need to keep it more organized and maybe not pack it to the brim with so much stuff.
NO BUGABOO'sNot sure how this store is a gear store with out the bugaboo, Store is one big mess of lots of random things.
