ABC Show – Day 2

I started the second day of the show by finishing up the last couple of rows in the downstairs exhibit hall. My favorite stop was at the Bumble Collection where I got to see my wonderful friends Jennie Lynn and her husband Sal. I also got to scope out their beautiful diaper bags and accessories, which just keep getting better and better. Bumble Collection

Then I headed upstairs to tackle the second half of the show, which included the massive Modern Child section, designated for manufacturers whose brand and product aesthetic is — can you guess? — modern. We spent over an hour with Bugaboo getting a fresh look at the Donkey and reconnecting with some of the friends we made in Amsterdam. Bugaboo Donkey in Blue

From there, I made my way to Skip Hop and checked out their newest designs, which included some whimsical bookends and a gorgeous new infant playgym.Skip Hop Bookends

The Boon booth is always a treat, and this year they didn’t disappoint. First — literally a treat — they give away Snack Balls filled with candy. Second, their new line-up of products is so innovative and fun. I especially loved their new lamp for kids, which changes colors and features removable balls that glow in the dark.

The best freebie of the day came from OXO — a new screwdriver set for changing the batteries on toys, with four different teeny tiny tips. If your kids have any toys that run on batteries, you know this is a brilliant invention.

But now I need to go get dressed and head over to the convention center for Day 3. We’re leaving tomorrow morning, so this is my last day and I have a ton of booths still to see.
