4moms High Chair at ABC Kids Expo 2015

We have high expectations for 4moms, and when they debut a new product, we expect to be impressed. But what could be so impressive about a new high chair? Magnets!

One of the trickiest parts of a high chair is removing the tray, right? If you’ve ever tried to teach your parents how to get your child out of their high chair, you know what I’m talking about. But the 4moms high chair is so easy, you can remove the tray with one hand.

The chair is extremely easy to clean and the foam insert can be removed and washed in the sink. The tray liner comes off and can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

The tray top is also magnetic and their high chair comes with a bowl that sticks to the tray. Other magnetic dishes will also be available for purchase.

The 4moms high chair also features 3 height settings, 3 tray positions, a 5-point harness than can be changed to a 3-point harness and it will retail for a reasonable $300. Look for it in early 2016!

New Product Showcase at the ABC Kids Expo 2015

The New Products Showcase is a good place to start our coverage of the ABC Kids Expo for 2015. The Expo ended yesterday but we’re just starting to digest all that we’ve seen from the nearly 1,000,000 square feet of exhibition space. The showcase is a separate area away from the show floor, where exhibitors can bring our attention to only their newest offerings. I took photos of the things that caught my attention (for better or worse) and we’ll discuss some of them in more detail later.

First, there are a few interesting new diapering products…

New Products Showcase Diapering

From OXO, the On-the-Go Wipes dispenser with diaper pouch can be dropped into any bag to turn it into a diaper bag, or just tossed into the car for convenient changes. From Hatch Baby, the Smart Changing Pad tracks baby’s growth, feedings, diapers and sleep in conjunction with your smartphone. A new diaper pail worth having a look at comes from bubula. The LifeChanger from Anna & Eve is a 3-in-1 diaper bag that is also a portable changing station.

For sleeping babies and children, a few things to take a look at are…

New Product Showcase Sleep

The Bamboo Muslin Swaddles – Modern Collection from Lulujo is the hippest black and white. From Puckababy, the Sleeper is a nifty portable rocking infant bed. From Australia, the Sunbury Cocoon Bassinet is a new option. Then the Kid-O-Bunk is the first portable bunk bed that’s perfect for camping and more!

I really liked…

New Product Showcase

The Liberty of London Armadillo Flip XT is extremely beautiful and we will revisit this special edition later. The Shnuggle Bath is a great cross between regular baby baths and the bath bucket. Baby Bjorn has a new diaper bag and I also like the Emerson Diaper Tote from Soyoung.

A few more items that caught my eye were…

New Product Showcase Misc

Fluf has some lunch bags in great patterns like the Flash lunch bag. PeekaBoo Growth charts from Mom Approved are brilliant– just stick them on the edge of your door! I’m interested to learn more about the feeding products from Mastrad. Finally, with Halloween coming up, the Suitables Role Play Bibs are fun and functional.

More expo coverage tomorrow.

ABC Kids Expo 2014: Thanks for Reading!

Hope I didn’t miss anything!  But I’ve been home for almost two weeks now, so it’s time for the show coverage to come to an end.

That's a wrap!

And now back to our regularly scheduled posting! Well, it’s not actually “scheduled”. I post things fresh as I write them in an effort to bring you the latest information as soon as possible all year long, not just during our trade show coverage.
