The Baby Show

Last Friday I headed off to The Baby Show at Earls Court.

Primarily I went for a meeting with a fantastic new client of mine, Giorry...I urge you to go and see these amazing bags, you will fall in love with the concept. They are essentially two bags in one, so you can have a bag for your babies items and still have a small seperate bag for yourself.  No one would even know it is a changing bags, they are that stylish and luxurious....and that is the beauty, they can stay with you for a lifetime even when your baby is no longer a baby.

Secondly I was lucky enough to go along to the Fisher Price Play Party.  It was great meeting up with some of my fellow mummy blogger friends, some old and some new. Tamzin Outwaite also came along with her little girl.  There was a short presentation by Dr Deborah Weber, head of product research, and it was really interesting to see all the work that goes into developing their toys. They showed us the research labs/play labs that are used to monitor children playing and we were shown the stages a toy goes through from initial idea to working prototype. I think the most amazing part of the play party however were the two ladies who were hired to entertain the children...they were amazing and I really would like to hire one to have at home please Fisher Price?

After the Fisher Price Party I finally got a chance to get down to the show and catch up with some more lovely peeps including Sian from Mummy Tips and Claire from Cheshire Mum and had a quick chat with the ladies from Cosatto whose products are simply fantastic.  I also met some of the Stokke team and got my 4th Xplory Textile Set in Orange!

It was a great day and as I left I realised it was rush hour and I had a massive bag of toys and a BIG Stokke Box to carry on the tube to Kings Cross. I made it to the train with seconds to spare and as I went to sit down in the calm of 1st Class all the musical toys in the Fisher Price Bag decided to go off. Luckily the people in my carriage had a sense of humour.

Oh and by the way...Out of all the toys BB was given she is most in love with her 'Laugh and Learn Puppy'.  It plays some of her favourite rhymes such as incy wincy spider, head shoulders knees and toes and patta cake patta cake.
