A Heavenly Night at the NYC Biggest Baby Shower Event (5/30/2013)!

Back in March, I posted an article about attending baby expos to snag great baby products. After many months of a long agonizing wait, I finally attended the NYC Biggest Baby Shower event hosted by Big City Moms and Fit Pregnancy this past Thursday. I seriously thought I’ve died and gone to heaven…well, for 4 hours at least.
The event took place at the Metropolitan Pavillon on 125 West 18th street from 5:30 – 9:30pm. Because I missed out on this much anticipated event during my pregnancy, I treated myself to the Super Pass ticket ($135) which entitled me a Beco carrier (ARV $100) as well as early entry to meet all the wonderful companies and get my hands on the cool goodies. It was worth every penny of the $135 because the crowd quickly filled the room past 6:30pm (start of regular entry for Standard Pass holders) and the sample goodies surely came and went fast! I heard from the news that night that over 1,500 new and expectant parents attended this event.
There were so many great baby companies that participated in this event to demonstrate their latest gears/products, i.e. Britax, 4 Moms, GRACO, Fisher Price, Tiny Love, Joovy, to name a few and many more. Many of them held generous giveaways that were very fun to be part of. Educational seminars were held to teach new moms and dads about parenting. Even better, delicious food and mocktails were served everywhere to replenish the energy for hungry moms and dads who sprinted around snagging goodies. There were even celebrities such as Tiffany Amber Theissen from Saved By the Bell (remember those days?) and Susan Lucci that attended! I get to be star struck too while in heaven for 4 hours! Now what more can I ask for?
      
   
The best part hasn’t even yet been mentioned! The night concluded with each individual or couples pass holders going home with a huge (and I really mean HUGE!!) giftbag filled with generous products from the baby companies that participated (as pictured below). Also, each individual or couple, depending on their luck of a drawing, also received a random gift – a Maxi Cosi Kaia stroller, a diaper pail, or Skip Hop diaper bag! Really wanted to win the Maxi Cosi lightweight Kaia stroller for my 5 month old Poppyseed, but I won the blue Skip Hop diaper bag (as pictured) which still made my night glow!   
Some, not even all, of the goodies I snagged along with items from the generous giftbag!
Everyone goes home with a gift. I went home with this neat Skip Hop Diaper Bag!
Overall, it was a really fantastic event and I can’t wait to attend the next one in NYC. It was so well organized and the staffs were extremely cordial and helpful. I really wished I knew about this event while I was pregnant with Poppyseed. Could have saved SO MUCH money from buying baby stuff back then because all sample goodies I snagged, along with the generous giftbag, and the Skip Hop diaper bag all together combined well exceeds the $135 ticket I paid. All these generous goodies made my night heavenly, but I must say, see how happy all the moms and dads were made the night absolutely memorable!
I highly recommend you all to attend a Big City Moms baby shower event which is held in various other locations such as Miami, LA etc. Don’t miss out on the next event, click here for more details - http://www.bigcitymoms.com/.
