Cirque Du Bebe is the newest addition to the list of Manila’s bargain shopping destinations among moms with little children.
Since I was already within the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) area this afternoon to attend the launch of San Miguel Purefoods‘ My Great Food app, I have no excuse not to drop by and see what’s going on at the Cirque Du Bebe Baby and Kids Fair.
Cirque Du Bebe is happening at the Bench Tower, very close to Burgos Circle in BGC. You can search for it in your Google Maps if you’re using your car, or if going there by cab, tell the driver to take you to Burgos Circle. You won’t get lost if you follow the map because you’d see this big signage placed just outside the building. And by the way, looking for a nearby parking space to the venue is a little hassle.
When you reach the lobby of Bench Tower, you will see another signage but you can go straight to the basement by taking the elevator. There is a guard-on-duty who will give you a flyer as you enter the building. Please keep this flyer because it will serve as your entrance pass to the fair.
You will see this signage as soon as you enter the Bench Tower.
Cirque Du Bebe Entrance Pass: It is already good for 5 people.
When you reach the basement, you will have to register first here. If the line is not long, you’re okay to go in within 30 seconds.
I think the organizers have executed well the circus theme and vibe. It was nicely decorated, well-ventilated and cool.
However, I just find the aisles a little too small in some areas, which might be a source of inconvenience if you’d be bringing in your baby in a stroller.
What do you think of their aisle?
Now let’s go to the fun part: SHOPPING!! Aside from the other brands and usual products that I’ve featured here, just to let you know, I always feature NEW things that I come across with whenever I attend baby fairs or bazaars, or note-worthy booths that offer great deals.
Cotton On Kids is on sale, especially their shorts and t-shirts for girls and boys ages 0-6 years old.
This pile of Cotton On Kids clothes ranges from P200-400 only.
Kodomo Toothpaste for Kids 0-6 years old.
Kodomo, a Japanese children’s toothpaste brand with fluoride and xylitol is also on sale. It comes in 2 flavors: Green Apple and Strawberry. You can buy them from SM Supermarket once Cirque Du Bebe is done.
Kiele’s Anti-Mosquito Baby Cologne. Also available in Mothercare. It contains Citronella extract (a natural insect repelling plant), but it smells good. 🙂
Wild Pack Bags
So cute children’s bag / luggage / trolleys from Wild Pack. You can also find them in Rustan’s. The small luggage could fit stuff up to 5 kilos. I actually tried carrying it, and it is really light!
Yoomi Philippines is an innovative feeding technology that allows you to warm your child’s milk in just one button click, whether breastmilk or canned, even drinking water. You can check Yoomi Philippines on Facebook for more info.
Yoomi Feeding System
Messy Bessy, one of my favorite organic brands is on 20% sale for all their items! Please drop by their booth because I’m sure you will find something that you will like to have or try.
Messy Bessy is on sale at Cirque Du Bebe!
Since it’s now summer, Charlie Banana is one brand that I trust when it comes to buying your baby’s swim diaper! When not in use as a swim diaper, you can actually use it as a potty training pants for your child. We still have Charlie Banana’s Swim Diaper until now and it is still in good wearable condition. I bought it when Noa was about a year old.
I’ve heard from my exclusively cloth nappying friends that Charlie’s Soap is so good for their cloth diapers, and even baby clothes.
Charlie Banana 2-in-1 Swim Diaper and Training Pants is a baby must-have!
Here’s their price list for your shopping reference!
For the moms who asked me before about NurturMe and Baby Mum Mums — all organic baby foods, you can buy them at Babyland in Shaw Boulevard.
NurturMe & Baby Mum Mum organic snacks for solid food-eating babies and toddlers.
Banana Peel Flip Flops is also on sale at 40% off. They also sell recent style collections there like Lalaloopsy.
Halo Sleepsack is another baby-must have to help reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Death Infant Syndrome).
VMV Hypoallergenics‘ Mom & Baby Line also caught my attention, especially Grandma Minnie’s The Big, Brave Boo Boo Balm.
Seventh Generation Baby, a U.S brand is also there. They also offer organic baby skin care and household cleaning line.
Did you know that Bench already has a new product? Baby Wipes!
If you will be bringing in your child, don’t worry because Cirque Du Bebe has breastfeeding and changing stations.
Changing Station at Cirque Du Bebe. LIKE! 🙂
Breastfeeding Station: Uhm. I think they can improve this by making the chairs more comfy and placing a breastfeeding pillow.
Now, let’s go to my shopping finds, a.k.a. Mommy’s Haul. 🙂
Mommy’s Shopping Haul at Cirque Du Bebe — all for Noa. 🙁 Hehee!
Here is a quick rundown of the items I shopped:
- 2 Cotton On Kids shorts retails at P200/each
- 1 F&X Kids Summer Dress at P400
- 2 Kodomo Kid’s Toothpaste at P25/each
- 2 Cotton On Kids Disney® Licensed Shirts at P400/each
- 1 Kiele Anti-Mosquito Cologne at P199
- Melissa & Doug Water Wow Practice Board at P400
- Messy Bessy Fabric Freshner for P109
Noa’s favorite now: Melissa & Doug’s Water Wow — a messy-free practice counting and writing book that uses water as “ink.” Color magically appears when you color the board using the special pen. Bought this from Ogalala World booth.
I only shelled out a few bucks today. Luckily, one of Noa’s godmothers gave her some Bench GCs a few weeks ago, and I am so happy that I have spent it well today.
If you are able to shop a total of P3,000 (you can combine all your receipts from all the stores you’ve bought from), you will get a goodie bag from Bench and Cirque Du Bebe.
Cirque Du Bebe Goodie Bag for P3,000 worth of accumulated purchase from all the participating brands.
My estimated worth of this goodie bag is roughly around P300.
So there you are, I hope you find this post helpful as you take a trip to Cirque Du Bebe this weekend. Shop wisely and bring your shopping bag! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
So what do you think of Cirque Du Bebe? Is it worth the trip? ♥
