Shopping With The Kids

Looking for a new shopping experience with the kids where you are both kept occupied?
Maling Road will please both Mum’s and the little ones and provide a great distraction from the everyday routine. At Maling Road we have put together several family friendly hot spot ideas for you to try out when you visit us next.
Start the day with easy parking behind the shops or take the family on a train adventure and stop at Canterbury Station (easy access for prams).
Before that first coffee and baby chino visit Classic Characters a unique toy store, which highlights the fun of childhood and will keep the kids amused while you look around at the amazing range of unique products you just wouldn’t find at the chain stores.
For the latest in children’s fashion, visit Canterbury Kids or Heather Brown and for the best in kids shoes and experienced shoe fitting Mickey Junior is where it’s at.
If you are after a bookstore for you and/or the little ones, try Tim’s Bookstore for all of the latest releases and a wide range of options and expert advice.
To satisfy those inevitable rumbling tummies here are a few options:
 The Maling Room has won numerous awards for their coffee and have a menu just for kids (their mini milkshakes are a hot favourite).
Many of the other eight cafés on the street offer a children’s menu and toy box to keep them amused. For a treat, try our other cafes including Alley Cat, Cafe U, Weathersons and Bambaleros or for their signature sponge cake or Devonshire Tea, Ruby T’s is a great option.
A Pocket of Lollies has a treat to keep the kids happy while you visit the many homeware, clothing and accessory stores.
For a more adult sweet tooth, visit Xocolatl or Bohemia Cakes for a decadent sampling of chocolate.
Now that the kids are happy with a full tummy, visit Dsassi or Inzagi for all the latest fashion and later Perfect Pieces for all those necessary accessory purchases.
Your everyday needs are also catered for with an IGA (they have mini trolleys for the kids), the butchers, specialty shops or greengrocer.
