The Latest Gear and Accessories from ABC Kids Expo 2014

There’s a ton of baby gear on the show floor at the ABC Kids Expo and here’s the best of what I saw.

The Travel products from KidCo are no-nonsense, do what they need to do products, that work at home, while camping, or while traveling. The new items in the travel collection are the DreamPod Portable Bassinet ($150) and the TravelPod Portable Play Yard ($170). KidCo also added a lighter weight “Plus” model of the GoPod and updated the PeaPod as well.

Diaper Dekor diaper pails were getting larger (classic, plus and xl), but now they’re coming out with a smaller mini version for those who don’t prefer to store dirty diapers for very long.

For a limited time, this Dots by Karin BABYBJORN Bouncer Balance Soft will be available exclusively at Kohls.com.  If you want to go all in on the black and white for baby, you don’t want to miss this one.

Babyhome is coming out with another version of their Dream bassinet. The Dream Air has sides that unzip for ventilation and visibility. This type of mesh on travel sleepers and bassinets for air flow and ventilation was a huge trend across the board at the expo.

Regal Lager‘s newest brand, Qdos, has some great modern baby gate options including a transparent acrylic gate. I’d suffer a few hand prints on that thing rather than use a clunky unsightly gate, but that’s just me. Qdos is a whole line of safety products and I look forward to seeing the rest of the line when they launch.

In case there aren’t enough color options for your Maxi-Cosi Mico car seat, soon you’ll be able to customize your seat when you order it. It’s a great car seat to begin with and now buying your Mico has never been more fun.

There are all kinds of fancy special edition strollers out there with fun or fashionable fabrics and finishes, but this iCoo stroller is the first I’ve seen with a copper frame.

I got to check out Stokke’s Trailz, their heavy-duty all-terrain stroller.  $1300

The Scoot is the compact Stokke stroller.  I love that it it forward or rear facing and has an upright seating position.  $600

Check out all the accessories for the Stokke strollers. And the Stroller Style Kit Seat Print (center with Beige Cubes) makes one super stylish stroller!

Fisher Price seems to be heading in a good direction with this Comfort Curve Bouncer.

The new Wind attachment for the Leaf keeps the seat rocking automatically.

There was plenty of new stuff and many brands I didn’t even get to! For more baby gear and stroller coverage from the Expo, check out Growing Your Baby, Spilling the Beans, Baby Chic 101 and Baby Gizmo.  It’s no wonder they had good coverage because I saw them all over the place!
