The ABC Kids Expo 2014 was held last week at the Las Vegas Convention Center from September 7 – September 10th. The show was a huge success with over 14,000 attendees and 3,510 booths. Social Media 22 was there to scope out what’s new in the baby & kids industry and we discovered some awesomely innovative products that we just had to share!
Our “From the Floor” series will showcase different brands and products that we saw each day that stood out from the rest. Here’s what got us excited from Day 1…
San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow
The San Diego Bebe® Eco-Nursing Pillow is an eco-friendly nursing pillow that offers support, comfort and discretion for mom and baby. This supportive pillow is loaded with amazing patented features for discreet nursing, like its built-in, vented Privacy Cover™ and signature Comfort Bolster™. Made with Eco*Loft™ virgin fiber instead of foam, it is free of fire-retardant chemicals, and is hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, odor-free, glue-free, lead-free and Phthalate-free. It is available for a single baby or in a larger version for twins, and is perfect for bonding during breastfeeding.
Fun Fact: San Diego Bebe is a business run by women and invented by a mom of twins (Sandy Clark left her job as a real estate appraiser to focus on her business!)
Piggy Paint is a natural, eco-friendly nail polish designed for fancy girls. Its non-toxic, hypoallergenic formula makes it safe to use on all piggies. Piggy Paint dries to a hard, durable finish that can easily be removed with our eco-friendly, low odor Piggy Paint nail polish remover. Both are made in the USA!
Fun Fact: Piggy Paint has many charities that are close to its heart. National MS Society and Get Well Gabby Foundation (to promote childhood cancer research) are organizations it has been sponsoring for years.
Rumparooz by Kanga Care
The Rumparooz One Size Cloth Pocket Diaper is 4 diaper sizes in ONE diaper. Everything you will need from birth (6 lbs) to potty training (35+ lbs) in one set of diapers. This means that the same diapers you buy for your baby to wear home from the hospital are the same diapers your child will potty train out of. No need to buy a set of 24 diapers each time your baby needs the next size up. The Rumparooz One Size Cloth Pocket Diaper will save you around $300.00+ over sized cloth diapers.
Fun Fact: The first Rumparooz were handmade by inventor Julie for her daughter – soon enough everyone started asking her where she got her leak-proof cloth diapers and decided to turn it into a business.
The Minkey by Olie
The Minkey is a 3-in-1 winter garment that will keep your child’s gloves, hat and scarf on at all times. The Minkey is basically a baklava hat with an attached polo neck scarf that has two long sleeved gloves attached. All the pieces are attached to each other making it easy to keep your child warm and dry in the winter. The amazing thing about the Minkey is that it stays on even when your child doesn’t want it to, so no more lost gloves, no more lost hats and no more cold and grumpy children. The Minkey keeps your child warm and dry all winter long in just one piece.
Fun Fact: The Minkey was made for the founders’ 3-year-old daughter out of an old pair of tights! Not only is she a trend setter, she also speaks Swenglish (a combination of Swedish and English).
