Les Elephants comes from Taiwan, and has opened many branches in Beijing. They specialize in offering the merchandise for the kids age 0 to 6. I visited its store near middle North 3rd Ring Rd.
You can tell the type of store it is immediately by the cute tiny elephant Logo loved by its customers, the kids. According to the shop assistant who cannot speak English, the branch trademarks offered at Les Elephants include Nac Nac, Disney Baby, and Combi.
I picked out a cotton garment£¨ÃÞ·þ£© designed for the infants priced RMB 158, which is in orange and ocean blue. The size fits children under 1 meter, or roughly ages 3 to 4. The thick clothe, which comes with a hood, help insulate the child from Beijing¡¯s cold weather.
Towards the back of the store, I found many items for infants. This includes 4-in-1 gift boxes, priced RMB 200 to RMB 400, perfect for baby showers!
According to the shop assistant, all merchandise is of guaranteed quality, manufactured in Shanghai. Many mothers repeated shop here because of this.
Although prices vary, you can usually get 20% ~ 30% discounts for most items
