I was invited to Brooklyn’s 2nd annual baby expo presented by 'A Child Grows in Brooklyn' this past weekend, June 2. As a Brooklyn native, our ever growing community really needed something like this so I was flabbergasted when I learned such an event will be held in the very hearts of Carroll Gardens. The baby expo was hosted at the International School of Brooklyn. Popular brands like Joovy, Britax, Babyorganics, Plums, and more all came together to demonstrate their very latest products. There were even all day educational seminars, food, and even a live band for entertainment!
What I really liked was the setup of this baby expo. Because it was held in a school, presentators stayed in different classrooms which I found to have created an intimate atmosphere. It was a nice surprise walking into each room to see what awaits you.
Best part of it all, of course, was the generous giveaways! Visitors were given a bingo game card to visit each booth and obtain stickers. The completed Bingo card was redeemed for a raffle ticket. Unlike any other baby expos I've been to, EVERYONE in this event walked away with a great prize, from Britax stroller, Stokke baby carriers, boppy pillows, Joovy playpens, to even an Orbitz stroller! I walked away with a Joovy Moonroom! I was so thrilled and till this day I can't stop smiling how I won such an awesome giveaway! Overall, I had alot of fun and it was a day well spent to see our community all come together. I already can't wait to attend next year's Brooklyn baby expo event!
A Child Grows in Brooklyn is an organization set up by Kim and Nicole to create awareness of all the fun activities for parents in Brooklyn. They were so friendly and high spirited and I commend them for all their hard work and efforts into making this expo such a wonderful event.
