My Top 10 Product Picks from ABC Kids Expo ’16
It’s been nearly two weeks since I attended the popular juvenile product industry’s ABC Kids Expo 2016 in Las Vegas Nevada. With over 3,000 tradeshow exhibitors this expo proved to be one of the largest I’ve seen and chock full of new and innovative products from brands I already love and brands I’d never heard of. In this post I’ll be rounding up my Top 10 Products from ABC and they’re not all cloth diaper related.
1. Covered Goods
I was on a guided your of several brands and I must say that when I heard our next stop was Covered Goods, I had no idea what product I could expect to see. I’d never heard of Covered Goods and was pleasantly surprised to find a product that I knew you all would just LOVE!
Covered Goods is the manufacturer of very stylish and versatile nursing scarves and cover. I know you’re thinking there are so many nursing covers, what makes this one different? First of all the prints and patterns are majorly on trend. Second of all this nursing cover is generously sized enough to keep you warm and cozy on a plane, stylish enough to wear as a scarf, doubles as a shopping cart cover (and cover for other styles of seats and swings) and an infant car seat cover to create shade and privacy for sleeping babes. So whether you’re a breastfeeding mother or not, this scarf will rock your world and makes a great gift! Click HERE to shop Covered Goods Nursing Scarves.
2. Re-Play Recycled
If you’re not already a Re-Play fan then you’re missing out! Re-Play Recycled manufactures really durable children’s tableware from recycled plastics. This stuff is brightly colored, very quality made and easy to become addicted to. I bet you can’t buy just one set, you’ll need the whole Re-Play Rainbow.
3. TokiDoki from Itzy Ritzy
There were tons of new TokiDoki products debuted at the ABC Kids Expo. Itzy Ritzy showed off new wetbags, snack bags and mocs. At other booths I saw sippy cups, tableware and hydration bottles. Proof that the TokiDoki craze isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
4. Lil Learnerz and NEW Toki Doki Prints from Rumparooz / Kangacare
We have Julie at Rumparooz to thank for starting the Toki Doki trend within the juvenile product industry in my opinion and contrary to popular belief, she’s the mastermind behind her unique Toki Prints and the reason you won’t see many duplicate Toki Doki prints from other brands. At ABC Kids Rumparooz also revealed their newest line, Lil Learnerz potty training pants! Lil Learnerz are also available for sale at Kelly’s Closet!
5. Bottombumpers / Earthbottombabies Collab with Enchanted Slumber
This product really stood out to me at ABC. It’s a Sleep Sack/Mat for kids with built in buckwheat pillow. Perfect for travel, daycare, napping in unexpected places or just when your little one wants to Netflix & Chill. These beautifully made sleep mats can adjust to grow with your child and are easy to transport. They’re also so quality made that you’ll for sure want to save these for future generations. Visit Bottombumpers on Facebook or Enchanted Slumber for more details on this new product and where to buy.
6. Unders from GroVia
New underwear and undershirts from GroVia! These adorable Unders from GroVia are sure to be a hit with little ones. Comfy and soft, these will help encourage little ones to make the final leap from training pants to real underwear once and for all. Shop for Unders at GroVia.com.
7. Nintendo Prints from Bumkins
Attendees flocked to the Bumkins booth where they displayed their new line of Nintendo branded wetbags, bibs, teethers and more. No diaper prints yet but I am sure they’ll be in the works soon. These authentic old school gamer designs are sure to be a hit and are available via retailers nationwide.
8. Classy NEW styles from Life Factory
Check out these awesome new styles from Life Factory! I was excited to see their new styles headed more toward a fashion conscious consumer. I think it’s smart business move to have a variety of styles to choose from including basic workhorse Life Factory bottles with colorful silicone sleeves to trendier high end bottles for those looking to turn their bottle into a chic accessory. Shop Life Factory on Amazon.com.
9. Doodle Pants!!
I was seriously impressed with Doodle Pants. While I had seen Doodle Pants online before I was not familiar with the quality and insanely cute designs. If I had a child in Doodle Pants sizes I’d for sure have an entire wardrobe made up of these cloth diaper friendly cozy pants. Are these cute or what!? Shop Doodle Pants at Amazon.com.
10. Belly Bandit’s Bamboo Boob Sweat Liners!
Of all the products I saw these were among the funniest yet most practical. Boob sweat be gone with these super soft bamboo sweat liners designed to go between your bra and your skin keeping you comfortable and dry. Yes they look like a giant mustache but they’re so soft and the solution to a very common issue. Shop Belly Bandit at Amazon.com.
