Top Picks from the NY Baby Show 2016
The NY Baby Show does a great job showcasing the best products and services to parents during all stages of pregnancy to parenthood. (Kudos to New York Family for putting this together each year!) And contrary to what the event title may lead you to believe, it’s still valuable to those of us parents who have outgrown the infancy stage and have graduated into toddlerhood. My husband and I gained valuable information at life insurance, as well as estate planning/ trust (legal aid) booths for example in addition to being able to test-drive, taste-test, and try out various products still relevant to our 3 year old (and us).
With fun pit stops along the way like meeting Snoopy, balloon making and face-painting, little Juliet was also happy to explore with us.
My Top 3 Picks from the Baby Show this year include:
- GB Pockit Stroller ($249.99). At just 9.5lbs, this game-changing stroller, was named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “world’s smallest folded stroller.” And small it IS! It’s the size of my diaper bag and fits underneath an airline seat! City dwellers who commute by taxi, bus and subway are going to LOVE this! Us NY-ers know what a pain it is having to trek up and down subway stairs with baby, diaper bag and heavy stroller. Even though we already have 3 strollers we were tempted to buy this on the spot!!
- Kidpass ($49/month). You’ve heard of Classpass, the global class pass that lets you exercise at various gyms? Well this is a class pass for kids’ classes. And it’s genius because finally you have access to all these amazing indoor play spaces and exclusive classes that normally you’d have to pay a membership fee for. Classes. Events. Camps. Juliet and I are definitely trying this out! What a fun way to explore the city! What’s more, YOU can get $30 off your first month simply by entering ‘fabgab’ as your promo code!
- Hatch Things Sure Shop ($15.95). Anyone who owns an umbrella stroller has had it tip over at one time or another. Toddler jumps out, and embarrassingly, everything tips over including the contents of your diaper or grocery bag. Sure Shop prevents those spills by redistributing weight towards the stroller’s center of gravity while also preventing bag-drag. Perhaps best of all, it folds up compactly into a tiny pocket making it the perfect travel accessory! It comes in 6 colors and I was lucky enough to have been gifted one as part of the blogger goody bag!
A special thank you goes out to MomTrends who provided a complimentary family ticket,free babysitting services, and an exclusive blogger lounge for us to retreat into, fuel up and enjoy mini-massages. Who can refuse that??
It was fun connecting with fellow bloggers and taking home the aforementioned goody bag!
