BBB is only on the east coast, and not all of it. So, if you have lots of family that don't live in tristate area, you may want to register at BRU.

We live in FL, and registered in both.

Re: Buy Buy Baby or Babies R us?

I did both.
BBB had the car seta I wanted
BRU had the PNP and the stroller
so I split it pretty evenly.
BRU i smore convenient, but I think BBB has free shipping- plus my cousin works for the BBB company, and gets a discount, so a lot of my family will but from there.

Re: Buy Buy Baby or Babies R us?

I did BRU for the same reason that the ladies listed... I'm in Vegas, and I wanted to make sure that I would be able to have had everything shipped to me with no problem.

I registered at both. My registry at BRU was bigger, but not many people bought things from the BBB registry.

I did BBB and Target. If I had to do it over I would do BRU and maybe BBB.

BBB had a few of the patterns that I wanted than BRU. BRU is more convenient and is easier to shop online there too.

Most people bought off my Target registry which was fine, but returns are a hassle bc you cant use the packing slip to do returns. You have to go online and print them.

BRU is better for people who do not live in the area, since there are not many BBBs.

However, I liked the selection and the service at BBB far better than BRU (at least at the stores I visited). If you aren't sure, you can do both.

Re: Buy Buy Baby or Babies R us?

If you are only doing one I would do BRU because of multiple locations. I do feel that BBB is a little better and more organized. We did both because I had things at both stores that I liked.

I just did BBB and am not even done with that. I found it overwhelming enough so I stuck with one place.

Re: Buy Buy Baby or Babies R us?

We were planning on only registering online at BRU but we started to register last night and found that they didn't have some of the stuff we wanted in the store (either only online or not at all) so we are probably going to register for some stuff at BBB as well.

Re: Buy Buy Baby or Babies R us?

We did both, but really 99% of what I got was from BRU.

BBB just isnt as convient for alot of people as they dont have as many locations.

We plan to do BRU. They seem to have practically everything, and have more locations.

I'm definetely doing BRU, but if BBB has something that BRU doesn't, I may register for a few things there as well.
