A few weeks ago the family and I ventured off to the Chicago Baby Show! It was truly a family event my mom and sisters joined my husband and our boys. It was held down at Navy Pier and it was full of vendors, exhibits, and classes. Some of the brands that were there were new and upcoming while some were tried and true companies that have been around for ages like Huggies and Boppy! While walking the expo I was so impressed with the new aged baby and toddler items offered.
There were so many cool things at the baby show and so many cool takeaways I am going to do another blog post to really cover everything because if I don’t this would be a LONG post! LOL. Anyways I want to talk about 3 of my favorite products that I checked out at the show. I tried to minimise my spending because I could have literally bought everything. Usually I buy my baby kit from places like Shoppok because you can make some great savings, so this was a bit of a blow out. I mean there were so many things that I fell in love with but as a mom of a toddler I really zeroed in on things that would be a good fit for our family.
- BEABA Mini Call – This mini baby monitor is powerful! Small and mighty, MiniCall has a huge 1,000 ft range, is water and shock resistant and has the clearest digital sound around. It also charges via USB and the battery life is a shocking 25 hours! Chance is so active and gets into EVERYTHING so I always have to listen in on him this would be the perfect tool for us. If you’ve got a baby of have ever raised a child, you know how invaluable baby monitors are, so do your research, read reviews, and buy one. You won’t know what you ever did without one.
- Baby Tripster – Traveling with your baby has changed forever! Now you can take Baby Tripster and your baby’s favorite soft food from home anywhere you go! Specially designed for the most rugged travel conditions, Baby Tripster is the world’ first and only guaranteed leak-proof travel kit. This is the perfect little container for a healthy lunch or snack for Chance when we are out and it’s affordable. 3. Thinkster Straw Bottle – Free of BPA, lead, PVC, PET, and biologically harmful chemicals. No spill straw! Extra soft, medical grade silicone straw provides easy transition from sippy cup to the next stage of feeding straw bottles. Perfect for 16 to 48 months. Comes with easy to close swivel top which reduces chance of spillage during travel and protects the straw from coming into contact with germs. This is the ultimate sippy cup, I love that it has handles and fits perfectly in the hands of a toddler definitely a must have.
Make sure you check out some of these cool products and brands I am sure you will be impressed. When shopping for baby and toddler products read online reviews also see if any of your local stores have demos to test items out or you can just attend a Baby Show so you can get discounts and actually test products out at the same time. Special thank you to all the brands that came out to put Chicago on the map for one of the largest Baby Shows out there and also for having so many prizes and free swag for everyone attending it was a great event and I am happy we came. Be on the look out for a recap blog post that will feature other brands and more candid shots of us at the expo! Happy Baby Shopping!
