Hi

We are moving to the Northern Beaches with our almost 5 yr old DS in December.

We are moving to a furnished place that my MIL owns so we are planning on just bringing suitcases with clothes, toys etc...

Is there anything we should bring with us from here that's expensive or hard to find there? Especially kid related things?

 

Thanks!

D

Congratulations on your upcoming big move! Have you been to Sydney before? It looks like your post might have been missed, so I wanted to bump it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have recommendations to share?

Not sure what sort of things you're thinking of. You will probsbly find most things expensive over here compared with US prices. I'm happy to provide more info if you have specific things in mind.

But be aware that it is illegal to use it in Australia.

my apologies, i wasnt aware it was illegal, they are frequently much better/safer seats and i know many people here import them and use them for that reason.
