Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower – Spring 2010 pretty awesome!

The biggest baby shower [Recap Link] is a twice yearly event put on by Big City Moms [Link].  I’m going to say its the must attend event of the year during your pregnancy or directly following.  The vendor list is so massive I’ll just cover it with a quick who’s who…

Skip*Hop, Bugaboo, Mam, Delta, Born Free, Glamour Mom, Maclaren, Ouef, Stride Rite/Robeez, Momma Couture, Nomie Baby, Giggle,  Boon, Britax, Destination Maternity, The Bump, Zoli, Teutonia, Orbit, Bloom, and iCandy just to name a few.

There was well over 350 ladies at this event and I’m going to say a little over a dozen guys. Even with this amount of people the space could easily have held another 50 plus.

The VIP tickets gained an extra hour to walk around and a secondary goodie bag. The swag in these bags are off the hook! Easy worth the price the ticket alone, but then you add in the raffle prizes that could win you strollers worth $800 plus dollars, highchairs, car seats, and so much more.

During the event there were 3 seminars going on, which not passed along great knowledge but had their own mini raffles and you guessed it more strollers were given away.

I think its awesome that not more then a year or two ago you wouldn’t catch a guy at this event and now its becoming pretty acceptable and soon it’ll be popular.  No matter who you are, reporter/media, trend forecaster, trend setter, mom to be, dad to be, or just a friend – this is a must attend event.  Starting looking forward to the next one in the fall!

For my vote the coolest daddy product I saw was the Taga Tricycle Stroller/bike, within a minute you can make a stroller into a trike that would be awesome to cruise around central park. I would follow that up by saying you should check out Fujifilm/SeeHere.com which could out put a picture onto a throw blanket.

Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower – Raffle to win tickets

Big City Moms [Link] is a wonderful group in the city.  For my family its given us a play dates for Marc, before that support in that expecting phase, community, and friendships.  When Marc was younger we would do two to three Big City Moms events per a week.

The Biggest Baby Shower Ever! is a twice yearly event that is awesome.  It is a who’s who of companies with products and services to market and inform the soon to be moms.  This event was one of the best events for our family, although at the time I was asked to say home – I really really wanted to go.

Since Marc’s birth the Shower has grown and in a way its has changed.  Now there are a few expecting Dads to be found at the event! Which is so awesome! This is a great – think of it this way, would you go shopping for a car alone? probably not, so go to the shower ask your stroller questions, ask me your questions – I’ll be there!

In some ways this is the final stage to prepping for a baby. It is massive baby expo, it spans dozens of brands. Hundreds of products on display. If you have questions the reps will have the answers.

The swag is great! The raffles are amazing! The friendship and connections that are made at the shower is out of this world.  It is also just a great event to go with your girl friends and shop for the latest and great baby gear.

Each Friday between now and April 9th we’ll randomly pick one winner who will receive free admission into the shower.
