What you can expect from Mountain Baby
Mountain Baby was born (and still lives) in the fabulous mountain town of Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. For over 20 years, we've been providing families with the things they need to be in nature, be active, and thrive together.
We believe one of the most meaningful things families can do is spend time together in the Great Outdoors--and that means anything from a downtown park to a mountaintop. It's good for our bodies and souls, brings us closer as families, shows children the beauty and wonder of our planet and teaches them why it’s so worth protecting.
When you choose to shop at Mountain Baby, we know that you’re putting trust in us to provide products that are good for your family. We spend countless hours researching products to find the absolute best. And to us, the “absolute best” means:
Safe: You can’t protect your kids from everything “out there,” but you can do your best to make their world a safe place. We look for top-of-the-line, respected products that meet and exceed rigorous safety and health standards and we go natural and organic as much as possible.
Sustainable: It can be so overwhelming to be an eco-conscious, responsible consumer. We’ll make it easier for you by prioritizing companies that are committed to sustainable practices, and choosing products made with organic, natural, biodegradable, reusable materials.
Local, independent, family-owned, or as close to it as possible: We’re a small business, and we do our best to support other small independent businesses, because they keep families and communities healthy and vibrant. And we stay as close to local as we can, to reduce our carbon footprint.
Durable: Your investment in our quality products should be totally worth it. We don’t think it’s right to sell products that won’t make it through the season, and we want you to have those special, sturdy items that can be passed on to siblings and friends, and down through the generations.
Ethical: We make sure we work with companies that set a high standard of compensation, safety, and health for their employees, and that everyone and everything involved has been treated with fairness and respect.
A note about overseas manufacturing: Over nearly two decades in business, we have seen many wonderful companies move their production out of North America due to the intense competition from Big Box stores. But we have learned that countries do not make products, companies make products. Those that care will insist on quality standards and good working conditions, no matter where they're located.
Our home is Nelson, BC in the most beautiful Kootenay Region of British Columbia Canada. Below is a short film by Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism with special thanks to local film makers Mike Parenteau, Jon Long and Bill Heath.
