A couple of weeks ago, Babies“R”US gave a group of bloggers the chance to check out what is new and great for parents at Babies“R”US! Though I was unable to attend myself, I was lucky that Cheryl from Kids On a Plane was able to attend on behalf of My Little Review Corner and shared what she learned. Thanks Cheryl!!!!
Last week I got a sneak peek of the newest and hottest baby and parenting products (including some toys!) at the Babies“R”US Vendor Fair.
It is baby season in my group of friends right now and I am expecting several birth announcements within the coming weeks so while I was at the fair, I mentally started a list of things I will be purchasing for my friends and their babies.
Here are a few highlights from the fair:
Britax B-Agile Travel System
The B-Agile stroller and B-Safe Infant Car Seat is one of the lightest and easiest to use travel systems on the market.
It resembles some higher-end strollers on the market but is much easier on the wallet. The travel system includes a stroller, infant car seat and infant car seat base and retails for $449.99.
The stroller only weighs 16.5 lbs (slightly heavier than umbrella strollers which you can’t use during the infant stage) and features a quick-fold design, extra large canopy and a 5-point harness system with head pad that is adjustable without having to rethread or unhook any straps.
This new feeding system by Medela eliminates nipple confusion and allows your baby to control the flow of milk by increasing or decreasing the level of suction. Unlike other bottle systems, there aren’t stages of nipples to go through (slow flow, fast flow etc) and is well priced at $22.99.
Babies don’t have to change their way of feeding (drinking) and can transition between breast and bottle seamlessly.
ExerSaucer Triple Fun – Life in the Amazon
One product — three different uses. The ExerSaucer Trip Fun is a fun amazon themed playmat, exersacuer and activity table and grows with your baby.
Priced at $149.99 it can be used as:
- Playmat – newborn to 4 months
- ExerSaucer – 4 months to walking
- Activity Table – walking to 24 months
The ExerSaucer Triple Fun was my little guy’s favourite thing at the show. We spent a good portion of our time playing at the activity table and many tears were shed when it was time to go!
Aleva Naturals is a maternity and baby skincare product line made in Canada. Aleva Naturals does not contain any harsh chemicals, fragrances, perfumes or dyes.
I have been a huge fan of their Bamboo Wipes and Breathe Easy Chest Rub for several years.
Aleva Naturals products are great baby shower gift ideas if you want to give something other than toys or clothing.
Other Items of Interest:
There were some Babies“R”US Exclusive toys that my toddler loved and I made note of them for his next birthday.
The list of potential gifts is long. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the babies to arrive!
