I’m at the ABC Show (All Baby & Children’s Expo) in Las Vegas which is the show for all manufacturer’s that have products marketed to kids. Over the course of the next week I’ll keep you posted as to some of the most amazing products that I’m seeing here. And stay tuned for tons of giveaways of some of the most innovative and safe products I’ve seen!
Yesterday I participated in a press conference for the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Assocation (JPMA) announcing the 2009 winners of the Innovation Awards. This is a highly regarded competition started in 1989 which recognizes some those products that are truly making moms life easier and making a difference in our children’s life. This morning I’m off to ABC TV to show off these products but I wanted to give you a heads up on some of these that I find amazing:
– Lock N Block Window Guard by Cardinal Gates (www. cardinalgates.com) – Invented by 11-year-old Tharon Trujillo (that’s him in the photo with me!), The Lock N Block Window Guard is a patent pending removable safety gate specifically for the window that is safe and easy to operate. I don’t know what impressed me more – the product or that this amazing young man invented it!
– The City Select by Baby Jogger – (www.babyjogger.com) This is a multi function stroller that will be a must have for many moms! A unique, multi-functional stroller that allows parents to mix and match seats, bassinets, and car seats to customize their stroller. The City Select starts with a single capacity stroller but expands to a double by using a unique patented attachement method. As your family grows, simply snap on a second seat and you’re ready to go!
– organicKidz Stainless Steel Baby Bottles by organicKidz – (www.organickidz.ca) These were some of the most stylish baby bottles I’ve ever seen! They are the world’s first stainless steel baby bottle in 4,7 and 9 oz sizes. The 9 oz. bottles are the first insulated baby bottles keeping liquids cold for 5-6 hours. Since hitting stores in January, the bottles are in 10 countries and Disneyfamily.com’s Top Green Product.
So I’m off for another day of hoofing it through the Convention Center but stay tuned to learn about more amazing new products! And hats off to all the amazing mom entrepreneurs who are here with new concepts and brilliant products!
