Ok, so you’ve gotten the good news that you’re pregnant – now what? It’s time to make a doctor’s appointment, check out your health insurance, find out your company’s maternity leave policy, get some prenatal vitamins, research the latest foods-you-should-eat and foods-you-shouldn’t eat, figure out when to tell who, check your budget, discuss parenting with your partner, start thinking about baby names, buy some books on baby care, shop for maternity clothes, start planning your nursery, think about childcare…
Stop! Stop! This isn’t a blog post about things to worry about! This is about what NOT to worry about, and that’s baby gear – because that’s where we’ve got you covered. At the Drool Baby Expo, you can find all the essential baby items you’ll need in ONE NIGHT, and get sweet bargains while you’re at it. This is the most fun and relaxing baby shopping experience that you can imagine, and because you can comparison-shop on the spot, you’ll leave feeling happy and confident about your purchases.
At Drool, you have the rare opportunity to:
- Comparison-shop for all of your baby necessities, with all the best brands in one room;
- Enjoy interactive product demos with representatives from every company;
- Get amazing one-night-only discounts and gifts-with-purchase, right on the spot;
- Meet local companies and nonprofits that offer essential services your family will need; and
- Enter to win premium baby products for free (and we’re not kidding around, we’ve given away travel systems worth over $1000 at Drool)!
The showroom floor will be full of customer service reps from Magic Beans – just look for the green shirts if you need some shopping advice, and our baby gear experts will show you the way. It’s what we do every day at our stores, just with a little more traffic!
Not only do you get to handle a major pre-baby task the speedy way at Drool, but we’re also going to spoil the heck out of you while you’re here: there will be yummy snacks and mocktails and oodles of free spa treatments, so you can relax and get pampered a bit. You deserve it, mama!
Standard Tickets for Drool come with a sumptuous gift bag heaped with tidbits from participating baby brands, and VIP Tickets come with an even more glorious gift bag haul, totaling over $200 in value! (Yes, VIP Tickets sell out at the speed of light, so if one is still available, you’d better snap it up now.) We also offer Value Tickets, which don’t include a gift bag or raffle entries – these are perfect for your partner, your mom, or your bestie coming along to help you shop. All levels are available with an Early Bird discount through the end of March, so you can save even more!
Finally: Drool is still a whole lot of fun (and tremendously useful) if your baby has already arrived – there’s always more stuff that you can use, and browsing, eating cupcakes, and hobnobbing with other local moms is always a blast. Check out this review from blogger Susan Manning!
