Reporting from JPMA

I’ve just arrived in Orlando for the last JPMA show, set to begin in just a few hours. As always, I’ll have nightly reports and pictures to share. Stay tuned, and if anyone has any specific questions or feedback you’d like me to share on your behalf, you can send me an e-mail or leave a comment. You can find a list of vendors who are attending the show by clicking here.

  1. I would LOVE to see if they have the new Evenflo Triumph car seats (www.safetymadeeasier.com) and if there’s anything new from Britax…well, ANYTHING new in carseats would be appreciated!

    Thanks, and have a great time!!!!!

  2. Info on the quinny zapp and sun shades for strollers would be great

  3. I didn’t go into Evenflo today, but I will tomorrow. Britax introduced a new seat – I’ll go into that in a minute, and there’s a cool new booster seat that won the Innovation Award.

    Quinny isn’t here, sadly. As for sun shades, the guys from Sasha’s Kiddy Products continue to dominate that category, making excellent quality shades for pretty much every popular stroller model on the market.

  4. OK – I went to the Evenflo booth today and saw the new Triumph car seat. The infinite adjusting harness is pretty cool, and they have a nice ratcheting knob to tighten the harness. I have a new catalog, so if you have more specific questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

  5. Did you see the new Baby Jogger ATS and if so, how do you think it compares to the BOB? If it is a good stroller, do you know if you will be carrying it in the store? Thanks.

  6. That’s a great question. I did see the ATS, but for whatever reason, the front wheel was not swiveling smoothly on the model I saw. As I mentioned, there’s a really thick carpet covering most of the show, and it’s a bit hard to get a real feel for the strollers, but I’m going to go back today to take a second look.

    In a bit of cris-cross copycat, Baby Jogger has the ATS and BOB has the new 12″ Revolution, which looks a bit like the original City Series, but based on what I saw, neither of these new models are as good as the originals, so I do not think we will carry the ATS or the 12″ Revolution.
