There are about a thousand good reasons for parents of infants and toddlers (and moms- and dads-to-be) to attend the annual New York Baby Show this weekend, but our friends at New York Family magazine gave us the top three:
1. It’s an incredible family event of renowned speakers (including Dr. Harvey Karp, author of The Happiest Baby/Toddler On The Block series), top vendors (Destination Maternity, Skip Hop, Quinny, Orbit Baby) and services (free stroller check-up and vacuuming).
2. The kid-inspired fun is endless — from Clifford and Scholastic’s “First Library” center to the Huggies Diaper Derby (which everyone wins).
3. We saved the best for last: The Ultimate Nursery Giveaway, which includes a Joovy stroller and car seat.
The first 100 Gilt members to register for tickets go free (use the discount code “Gilt” at checkout). If you aren’t quick enough to snag these, it’s $20/family and $10/person, either online or at the door. Visit NewYorkBabyShow.com to sign up. On your mark, get set, go!
