Why should you go to a baby show?

You’ve just had the happy news that you will soon be hearing the pattering of tiny feet. You’re over the moon of course, but then you face the realisation that there is so much to prepare before you get to meet your little one. Everything from a cot and a pushchair, to a little wardrobe of baby clothes, to all the other things in between, it all needs to be relatively sorted before you baby comes along. Which is why a visit or two to some baby shows are such a good idea.

Baby Shows are Fun

You can have a great day out at a Baby Show. In general, they are enormous events so you can make a day of it – have a bite to eat, watch the demonstrations and browse the stalls, maybe ticking a few items off your ‘to buy’ list as you go.

Grab a bargain

There are many stores at baby shows that have a good range of products. Pushchairs, cots and bulk buys of baby toiletries can all be purchased at prices that are far cheaper than the normal recommended retail price. In addition, you may get to try/view products that are new to you, and there may also be samples/goody bags that also have free products in them.

Meet the Experts

Most Baby shows have experts who can answer your questions and queries. These can be related to feeding or sleeping, or can also be of a more technical nature – maybe you’ve not decided what sort of travel system you want, or have questions about choosing your baby monitor. Baby Shows are a great way to get your questions answered.

Find everything you need in one place

If you have a hatred of shopping, but don’t really enjoy getting things online either, then a Baby Show could be a great way to find everything you need in one place. You can place orders for the ‘big things’ like cots, highchairs and prams, which can then be delivered to your door, but you have also had the chance to look and test drive these things first – something you can’t do if you just shop online.

Did you go to a baby show when you were expecting?


Introducing Babythingz

When you have a baby, particularly if it is your first child, you suddenly become very aware that they require a lot of ‘things’. Things to sleep in, sit in, move in, eat in, the amount of stuff that a baby, and then toddler needs in those first two years of its life could fill a small warehouse. And, while many expectant moms do forward plan, for others, there is that running around like an endless chicken trying to collect all those much needed ‘things’, whilst pushing a pram and trying to work out how to get it all in the car.

Which is why Babythingz is such a brilliant website for new parents to bookmark. It is a one stop shop for all things baby, and helps you to avoid the endless trips to Mothercare with a crying baby in tow. Babythingz mission statement is ” to offer exciting products at great prices, give practical clear advice and superior levels of service.” They’re stockists of many famous and respected baby brands, including BabyStyle, Britax, Quinny, Pink Lining, Maxi-Cost and Phil and Teds.
