This family-friendly show for new and expectant parents will be showcasing products and services for maternity, baby and toddler, along with an inspiring menu of lectures, seminars and demonstrations from highly-regarded and beloved figures in the worlds of parenting and pregnancy. Plus, Dr. Harvey Karp (author of the classic “Happiest Baby on the Block”) is the keynote speaker (since I used his “Happiest Baby on the Block” with my kids, I’m excited).
The New Parents Expo will offer:
- Shopping! Brands such as Britax, Woolly Boo, Diaper Buds, Magnificent Baby, Inglesina and more, and retailers like giggle and buybuy BABY will be there.
- The Stroller Test Drive Track! Take today’s leading strollers for a spin on a special course designed to mimic both urban and suburban challenges!
- Free Buggy Tune-Ups! If you have a stroller, the folks at Buggy Bubbles will provide free tune-ups, checking handles, brakes, wheeling—they’ll even steam clean it for you! No more cheerios encrusted in your seat fabric!
- Big Apple Circus! Kids are welcome at the Expo. There will be face painters, balloon makers and performers from the Big Apple Circus, plus a special play area full of Tegu’s amazing wooden toys and blocks!
- Rest and Relaxation Lounges! There will be special lounge areas where you can rest your feet, nurse, feed and change your baby or just grab a drink/snack.
- An Expo For Dads Too! The NYC Dads Group are running the dads lounge, where the dads can chill and get support from other dads.
- Incredible Group Of Speakers! Besides the fabulous Dr. Harvey Karp, creator of The Happiest Baby on the Block and The Happiest Toddler on the Block DVDs and books, who will anchor both days with a big talk on calming babies and connecting with toddlers – the New Parents Expo will also feature Liz Lange, Dr. Bob Sears, Rosie Pope, Vicki Iovine, Audrey McClelland and Coleen Padilla, and many others.
