How It Works

Browse

Whether you’re looking for occasion or elevated everyday wear, browse our incredible selection from your favourite childrenswear designers and choose your pieces. We will automatically add optional full cover damage insurance to your cart for a worry-free rental experience for only £2.50 per week. Have questions before check out? Our concierge team is always on hand to help: send us an email, WhatsApp, website chat message or call us! Enjoy 1-2 day delivery on all orders and get free shipping and returns on orders over £60. Shipping costs £8 for orders under £60 and includes a courier home collection for returns within a window of your choosing. Looking to pre-order for a holiday or event? Add your pieces to cart where you will be able to add a note telling us what date you would like your order delivered. Once you have checked out, we will reserve your chosen items and send them out as required!

Rent

Our concierge team will be in touch via WhatsApp as soon as you place your order so you always have our number to hand! You will also receive shipping updates direct from the delivery courier. Enjoy use of your pieces for a flat weekly fee per item - billing starts on delivery and we automatically bill your payment method at the start of each new week so you have the flexibility to keep your rental pieces for as long as you like. Rent only for the week(s) you need - no strings attached! You will also find a message on donations with your order; include your pre-loved clothes when you return your order and receive Babu rewards points (to redeem against future orders) for every item we keep. Anything we don't will be donated to children in London living under the poverty line through our partner charity, Little Village, or passed on to Xetrov for conversion into renewable energy if irreparably stained or damaged.

Return

Let our concierge team know when you are ready to return your pieces and we will book a home courier collection at your convenience. There's no need to wash the clothes before you return them - we professionally clean and sanitise all garments to European standards upon their return. Please re-use the original packaging that your order arrived in and help save the planet in the process! Stick the returns label included with your order (no printing required!) over the top of the delivery label and hand over to the courier on arrival. Your weekly billing will stop as soon as your return is in transit with the courier. Don't worry if your return is collected after your weekly billing cycle time. You will have received a new order confirmation email, but your payment method won't actually have been charged: we capture payments manually to give you a bit of leeway with returns and to avoid having to process untimely refunds.

I tend to buy clothes for my children with extra growing room which never goes down well and with Babu Joshua is able to be in clothes that fit him properly and move up to the next band as and when we want. Very happy with this brand!

What’s great about Babu is that you can cater for the season and whatever your little ones have going on. The Babu team is super helpful and all the items are from well known luxury brands and are truly fabulous.

I've been hearing about Babu from my mum friends and decided to try them out for my 2 year old son. It's such a convenient service with everything totally geared to your schedule. And what's more, you don't have to worry about washing the clothes before returning them.

My two year old daughter Leah is obsessed with everything about Babu: the clothes, the box, everything. She even insisted on wearing one of the dresses to bed!
