(Second hand) Kids store in Antwerp, Gent, Bruges or Brussels?

Dear Fodorites...
We are expecting a baby and are heading out to Belgium next week.
I was wondering if there are stores that re-sell kids stuff (toys, clothing, gears, etc) still in great conditions and with good brands?

TIA!

Not sure about the exact right answer to your question, but there is a chain of stores selling maternity / children's wear called Prémaman (not second-hand, but new):

It seems to be very prevalent. Hope that helps - there must be second-hand shops too.

An FYI - in Brussels, one of the most famous second hand stores is Les Enfants d'Edouard on the Avenue Louise. But it's high end second hand for adults (you could buy yourself a Chanel or Hermes Kelly bag there if so inclined), nothing for kids there. However, they seem to know everything about second hand clothing in town - if there's a really good place for second-hand kids' clothes, they could tell you where it is.

It's not in the heart of town though - you'd have to take the metro to Montgomery then transfer to the number 39 tram and get off at the Rue au Bois or Aviation stops and walk a bit. Or take a taxi from the Stockel metro stop (end of the line). And there's no guarantee you'd find anything you'd really want, I guess it depends on how adventurous you want to be.
