The Baby Show October 2016

Its october again and that means its time for The Baby Show again. In the last year i've always taken a trip to The Baby Show. I usually go alone but this year I decided to take Lily with me to. The Baby Show always has so much to offer from activities happening throughout the day, and shows held on the stage and loads of great baby brands to see.

So we headed to Olympia London where it was being held and started our day. 


I could tell Lily was very excited and was pulling at my hand to get walking around the hundreds of stalls that were there. 



We first headed to EZPZ who were launching their product for the first time at The Baby Show this year. They were doing a food activity and I was excited to get Lily involved. Lily happily sat there in front of one of EZPZ's very cool plates that stick to the table. The team at EZPZ gave her some food and together we decorated the plate so it made a funny face. They are really cleverly designed and I think they will really encourage children to eat. 



We next headed to the Campbell Books Reading and Activity Zone to see Monkey Music do a performance. Lily loves music and dancing and so I knew she would love this. The singing session involved a dancing monkey and had all the children involved with shaking material around and making noise with shakers. Lily was a little shy of the monkey but she really enjoyed getting involved in this and by the end of it got a lot closer to the monkey. 



Next we had a invite from Stokke to celebrate the 10,000,000 Trip Trap Anniversary with a little party they were having. They had a huge table of arts and crafts which Lily loved, she made loads of sticky pictures and really enjoyed wearing a party hat. It was tricky to get her away from the crafty table but a party bag managed to get her away and we got some photographs sat on the Stokke Trip Trap highchairs. 




There was so much to see and we were more than half way through the day and so we made sure we popped to see some of our favourite brands. We headed to Funky Giraffe bibs where Lily became best friends with the giraffes. We also just had to pop to Heavenly organics seen as we are a taste tester for them. The stand looked great and Lily got to munch on some of her favourite snacks that they had on display there. 




We also popped along to see Nuby who we are soon to be working with and testing out their products. Lily really loved all the colourful items on their stand. Lily also really enjoyed that Chicco and Vtech had some toys out for her to try and spent quite a decent amount of time playing with those. 



Our last visits for the day was to 2 brands that I love and always keen to support. Snuglo and Magnet Mouse. Both great makers of baby clothes but both in 2 compleatly different ways. Was lovely to see what new items they had. Magnet mouse have a new breastfeeding shirt that opens so easily with their magnet fastenings and Snuglo have some really great new prints and soft Pjs which I just love. Snuglo kindly gave Lily one of there dummy's which meant Lily had a well needed nap. So I was very thankful for that from them. 



Having Lily with me at the baby show was great but meant one thing. I really didn't have much chance to see most the stalls and chat to the people there. So I decided I would head back on Sunday. 

On sunday I got to chat to some great new brands and also some I have loved for a while now. I was really impressed with Kiddihug. They have just launched a new baby carrier that not only supports the parents back better but also supports the baby better by not having there legs dangling. I tried this carrier on and it was really comfortable to wear and you can feel the support it provides you. 



I also visited Bundle Bean, who kindly gave me one of there New buggy organisers to try out. It looks great and can't wait to get using it so keep a eye out for my posts and tweets about that.


I met and chatted to so many different brands on the day. But here are a few that stood out to me on the day.


Bobux Shoes
Moor Baby
Diddi Dance
Mini - Me London
Taste 'n' Tell 


I couldn't leave The baby show without buying anything. So I ended up coming home with some Christmas books from Campbell Reading, Some Skin cream from Mustella and some cute Pyjamas from Zippy Bib. 

Overall The Baby show ended up being 2 really great days out for me. I can't wait for the next one. Head to The Baby Show website to see when the next one is.
