  • How can you resist a store that's named "Hoy Bata"? The couple behind Coco Haven, a brand of baby care coconut-based products, put it up to so they had a physical store to show their items. But they also call it a collaborative store because while it carries products from different brands, it also serves as a creative space where even workshops can be held.

    As soon as you see the silly scribblings on its storefront windows and step inside the rustic interiors, you know it's a nice hangout spot for parents and kids. There are tables with benches for mom and dad, a kiddie corner with toys and books, and shelves and racks filled with child-care, kids, and home items.
