Drool, The Baby Expo In Boston! (Win A Maxi-Cosi Infant Car Seat Valued At $179.99)

BOSTON AND AROUND, CONTESTS | | May 26, 2011 at 11:37 am


Congratulations Gianna! So typically Expos aimed at moms to be have been rather drab and run by one major retailer. Having attended only one ever while pregnant  was never tempted to go back. The commercialism vein that ran through it made me feel like I was amidst a huge advertisement. The quality of products were not the main focus and added to the fact that most booths were manned by people who had no clue about “mommyhood” (not that I had much either) but were just salesman.

Now I consider myself a savvy shopper and neither does pushy salesman or celebrity endorsements do anything for me, well except for my huge urge to own a Toyota RAV4 which was described as “Claudia Schiffer in hiking boots” (yes, I am a little fickle that way but I do still love my RAV4) – but when a fellow mom says something I listen. Which is why I know that Drool Expo will be different. It is presented by Magic Beans who not only have made it their mission to immerse themselves in all things parenting but have kept their finger on the pulse of technology (plus they supported my Mommy Niri Cares holiday charity drive).

So from the peeps themselves this is what it is all about:

The first annual Drool Expo, hosted at the Seaport Hotel in Boston on Tuesday May 31 from 6 – 9 PM, provides new and expectant parents to check out the latest in baby gear from a variety of brands. In addition, parents can take advantage of numerous educational opportunities including seminars about cord blood banking, prenatal fitness, and safety tips and techniques for proper car seat installation from the Injury Prevention Group at Children’s Hospital Boston. Attendees will also have the opportunity to win great prizes, enjoy light refreshments, and walk out with an amazing gift bag.

Magic Beans have invited me as their guest so watch for updates on Twitter and Facebook if you can’t make it else I suggest grabbing your ticket now.

So while I know you all can’t make it I wanted to offer my readers a sample from one of the companies (Maxi-Cosi and Quinny) in attendance. Sample is really a poor choice of words since a Maxi-Cosi Infant car seat valued at $179.99 can hardly be called a sample but you get the picture. I do not have the car seat and this is not a review of it but you can find all the deets at the links provided.

Want to win the Maxi-Cosi Infant Car Seat Valued At $179.99?
