UPDATE: The Cybex Aton Cloud Q is expected to be available in February 2016.
The Drool Baby Expo provides all the companies we love with a rare opportunity to show off their wares in person to an eager audience of parents-to-be – and provides Boston families with a rare opportunity to get one-on-one demos from the creators of the coolest products on the market!
In case you missed it, here are three of the newest, most innovative products that appeared at Drool, and are available now (or soon) at Magic Beans.
The Cybex Aton Cloud Q Infant Car Seat
This brand-spanking-new Drool debut adds an exciting feature to the already-exciting Aton Q: along with up-to-the-minute safety technology, the Cloud Q can lie flat! Not in the car, of course, where a slightly more upright position is necessary, but rather, when the car seat is riding high on your stroller. Just slide back a handle and the Cloud Q reclines, becoming a cozy carrycot where infants can snooze the hours away.
We love how carefully thought-out all Cybex products are: the Cybex rep made a point of showing me a special fail-safe that keeps you from installing your seat incorrectly. See those last two pics? That’s the belt path… which automatically closes when the seat is reclined, making it impossible to install with the baby positioned incorrectly. I’m telling you, they thought of everything!
We’ve been talking up Bugaboo’s first jogging stroller since we saw the first sneak preview at the ABC Expo, and consumers first got their hands on it at Drool!
The sleek new jogger is available as an extension that carries any Bugaboo stroller seat, or as a complete jogging stroller that outclasses everything else on wheels on your street! Nothing beats Bugaboo for engineering, design, and style.
Ergobaby is known for comfort, with their legendary baby carriers that let you tote growing kids without destroying your back. Today, they’re entering a new Ergo-arena: nursing gear!
The Ergobaby nursing pillow is already scoring rave reviews, which is unsurprising since they really did their homework when they designed this product – it was created with ample input from a team of lactation experts and nursing moms. Mamas praise the firmness of the pillow, how it places babies in a cozy and ideal tummy-to-tummy position, and how it ensures that moms are sitting in a position that’s best for their back (since that’s what Ergo is all about!).
Did you miss Drool? The next Drool event isn’t too far away – the second annual Drool Connecticut is happening on August 27, at the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich. Tickets will be on sale around June 17, and if you live in New England and you’re expecting, you can’t afford to miss it!
