A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas. At first thought, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but hey, it’s Vegas Baby! I knew it was going to be big with over 12,000 attendees, over 900 exhibitors and nearly 3,000 booths spread over 1 million square feet of exhibit space at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Yup, I was a little intimidated! Luckily my husband loves Vegas and didn’t mind being my wing man (his support is endless)!
Our first day I was able to get the lay of the land. There were so many brands and tons of attendees looking to learn more about all the new products being featured in the baby and kid space. It took me a second to figure it out but ABC did such an amazing job organizing the brands and product categories for easy navigation. By the second day, we were pros! It was such a great opportunity to learn more about up and coming new products (to share with you) and also to meet companies to get more of a sense of their brands on a more personal level.
One of our first stops was to check out Plan Toys. We have always been huge fans of their toys and their concept. They are a true staple and always have fun things coming down the pipeline.
The Baby Jogger City Tour was a new fave for me. I wasn’t familiar with this product but love it! This stroller is super light weight and literally folds to fit inside of that bag! What! Amazing for travel. You can fold the stroller in the bag and bring it on the plane with you as a carry on!
I have been a fan of 3 Sprouts since I had Nimah, so four years now. They are really great with incorporating fun animals and vibrant colors into extremely useful, kid friendly products. We are huge fans of these toy storage baskets! They also have a really fun play mat that easily cleans up in no time at all that they are introducing early 2017!
Of course we had to stop by one of our staple brands, The Honest Company, and say hello. They continue to produce awesome products that are amazing for baby and home use. I swear I have their hand sanitizers in every bag, car, room, etc!
4 Moms was one of the first brands I put on my baby register with the famous MamaRoo. They are stepping their game up and moms everywhere will rejoice! They are introducing car seats to the market with the most amazing interactive self installing technology. The screen on the side of the car seat walks you through every step of the process and will alert you on your phone or on the advice if anything is wrong. That is truly amazing, especially with the rate of accidents and car seats being improperly installed being so high.
When it comes to lunch boxes and back packs, my girls have always loved their Skip Hop characters. Both of my daughters currently rock the Owl lunch bags to school. Yet, they are so much more! From diaper bags to nursery items they literally have it all. They are also introducing a new activity center that offers 3 stages of play, which is perfect for that soon to be toddler in your life!
I had so much fun exploring all the new items and sharing my faves with you! Being in Vegas sans kids for a couple of nights with the hubby wasn’t so bad either! More fun in the video below.
