Magic Beans Drool Baby Expo
Written by Emily Roach
On Tuesday night I attended the Drool Baby Expo organized by Magic Beans. All of the best in baby gear came together to show off the latest gear, clothes, toys and everything in between. I went in to the experience to check out the latest eco-friendly gear to share with my readers at Random Recycling, and also to visit with some of the local business.
I loved the variety of vendors at the event. Both big and small, local and California based companies all got together to share the latest and greatest in baby gear. Certainly kicked in a little baby fever since my 15 month old is much more toddler now than baby. I will say it was great to attend the event as a parent of two because I know what features are really key, like a one-handed fold up option for strollers. I have my eye on the new Britax B-Agile stroller. I didn’t even know Britax made strollers.
It was a nice mix of people I met at the event. Lots of expecting parents, new moms with their babies tucked inside a carrier, and also Mom-preneurs. Moms know when there is a need for a better product and I try to support them.
I was really impressed by the non-toxic paint line from Quiet Nursery
, baby food containers from Sage Spoonfuls
and baby bath and beauty products from MD Moms
. The ritzy ritzy
reusable snack bag was also adorable and I want to get one of their wet bags to stash in the beach bag for wet suits this summer.
I had a great chat with Lane, the owner of Tiny Signs. She is teaches baby signing to Metrowest families. If you are interested, you find more about her workshops here.
Lots of favorite items, hope they have the event again next year!
