Our Story 

Active Baby is a local family business owned by North Vancouver residents Chen and July, parents of 3 young girls. Being active parents themselves inspired the idea of bringing high quality outdoor baby products under one roof to serve the local community. In 2009, when their first daughter was 18 months old, Active Baby was born.

Created with the concept of connecting with, supporting and growing a green and active community, the store was filled to the brim with a unique selection of outdoor and eco-friendly baby products. It was born to fit into an active and green-living lifestyle that many families embrace on the North Shore.

In the Spring of 2014, during it’s 5th year of business, the store moved from its original location at Capilano mall to the popular upper Lonsdale area. This move allowed for growth, and they now carry a wide selection of strollers, car seats, child carriers, travel gear, feeding and nursing products, furniture, heath and safety gear, toys and organic child clothing. Being a unique local baby store, Active Baby also carries numerous hand-picked locally made baby products designed or made in Canada. 


Summer 2015, when Chen and July's youngest daughter was just turning 1, the store added to their family, opening a new location in Langley, a young and fast growing city in Metro Vancouver. Conveniently located in the Langley Crossing Shopping Centre, Active Baby continues to deliver high quality baby products and in-store services to local parents. 

Their latest edition, in the Summer of 2019, Chen and July opened up a new location in Kitsilano. This has quickly become Active Baby's flagship location, filled with beautiful, high quality products.
