Free E-Commerce WordPress Theme: Balita

In this post we release yet another freebie: the Balita WordPress theme, a theme dedicated to shops that sell products for children. The theme was designed by Tokokoo1 and released exclusively for Smashing Magazine and its readers. As usual, the theme is absolutely free to use for both private and commerical projects.

Not many theme providers have produced e-commerce themes for baby and toddler products. For you who have been working in this particular market niche for some time or are about to start, this Balita e-commerce theme is a great opportunity for you. Using such bright and cheerful pantone colors that suit this clothes department (baby/toddler products), this Balita e-commerce theme will surely attract more and more customers to your online store.

Download the Theme for Free! Link

The theme is released under GPL. You can use it for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. Please link to this article if you want to spread the word. You may modify the theme as you wish.

  • Related Products:
    The idea of cross-selling basically means offering alternatives and additions to the current product which are considered. The most common way of doing this is by presenting within the site’s product details page, which is usually manually assigned. This may be known as the “Related Products” or “Similar Products” page, but might also be a manually assigned “Accessories” page or even more generic recommendations using the titles “May We Suggest” or “You May Also Like”.
  • Multiple Product Images:
    Do you happen to have a lot images for particular products which you sell on your online store? No problem. This theme and its functions will help and let you upload multiple images at once for the products you sell.

Behind the Design Link

As always, here are some insights from the designers:

“We designed the brand logo section as well as the navigation below to be very clear so that this theme looks neat and attractive. We made the single product page to look clean so users would concentrate more on products and thus is free of distractions. Contents are on the left side, while the add-to-cart button are on the right side, beside the contents.

Don’t miss the opportunity to get this free Balita Theme because there are not many ways you can get a free premium theme everyday. Last but not least, once again, thank you Smashing Magazine for the opportunity.”

Thank you, Tokokoo. We appreciate your work and your good intentions!

    I would really love to see this theme go cross plugin. There are a bunch of shop plugins, and it would be cool if it worked out of the box with a few of these (wp e-commerce, woocommerce, shopp to name a few). Because the theme looks just beautiful, and I would love to give it a spin on my shop that uses woocommerce.

        Hi Anggi,

        Really nice work. I’ve just visited Tokokoo website. What about the Toko Bajoo theme? I tried to download the theme, but did not seem to work.

      • 14

    Beautiful Theme, Thank you for supporting the WordPress Community Tokokoo, Amazing work..

  7. 16

    Has WordPress finally gotten to the point where it can do solid e-commerce? Most WP developers I’ve known for the past 5 years or so have always made e-commerce out to be virtually inviable on WP, outside of using sites like CoreCommerce or what not.

  8. 17

    it is possible to make the database instance?

  9. 18

    Very nice theme! Too bad it’s based on the WordPress E-commerce plugin… WordPress Shopp plugin for the win!! ;-)

      No offense. but so far the biggest free ecommerce plugin for WordPress community support by Dan Milward and getshopped team. so i can appreciate with balita theme :)

  10. 20

    Does Tokokoo do a blank wordpress e-commerce theme? That would be fantastic, I can’t seem to find one and going from a completely naked wordpress to integrated wp e-commerce (modifying all the stylesheets) can be somewhat of a lengthy process.. just a thought..

    great theme though.

  11. 21

    Demo not loading. Seems we’ve overloaded their site!

      October 19, 2011 6:32 am

      absolutely right :( please be patient or you can download and install it at your localhost. dont forget to install WPEC plugin

      • 23

        It’s really beautiful and I think it is the best of tokokoo theme,
        tokokoo is one of the best WordPress eCommerce theme from Indonesia. I’m really proud of it.

        keep up the good work guys..

  12. 25

    Amazing WP theme. If I had an e-commerce site, I’d consider it.

    A very nice theme! A blank wordpress e-commerce theme would be fantastic or a plugin set for custom themes would be fantabulous!

  16. 30

    Live demo & TokoKoo site, both are not opening. “Problem Loading Page ..”
