The Baby Show Olympia 2014

Sunday, 26 October 2014

Yesterday I travelled to London with Elsie to The Baby Show at Olympia. I usually only attend the Birmingham show so this was my first ever London show. My main reason for wanting to attend was to see some of the new pushchair releases that I wouldn't otherwise see until next year! It is also great to see some of the smaller stalls from newer companies more local to London. I thought I would share with you some of my personal highlights from the show.

Stokke 


I was lucky enough to be invited to a small event held by Stokke at the show where I got to see some of their latest products including the Trailz. The Trailz is the new all terrain buggy from Stokke. I love air filled tyres on a pushchair, they are brilliant for families who spend a lot of time outdoors. The Trailz is the pushchair for adventurers perfect for country walks or strolls on the beach. I also love that is has a basket. It is the only thing I feel is missing with my Xplory! 



I of course had to try Elsie out in an Xplory kitted out with the new Cloud Grey Winter Kit. How adorable does she look in it?! I've always admired the winter kits and the cloud grey is just beautiful. In fact seeing an Xplory with a winter kit back when Gracie was just a few months old was what made me instantly fall in love with Stokke. The Cloud Grey winter kit is most definitely on Elsie's Christmas list.


I also stopped off for a quick cuppa at the Stokke stand and had a sit down on a giant Tripp Trapp. We have a Stokke Steps at home but I'd love a Tripp Trapp. In fact I would love to replace all my dining room chairs with Tripp Trapps for all the family! 

Stack A Jack

This I had never seen or heard of before but it is a crib that can be taken apart and converted into a high chair or table and chair set. It's quite genius really how it grows with your child. Definitely a very clever idea and something that caught my eye!

iCandy



I was excited to see the iCandy Raspberry and was quite sad that Elsie was asleep every time I walked past so I didn't get to play with it. It is the perfect stroller, lightweight and very spacious. The seat unit lies flat so is suitable from birth which is always a good point for me. It is parent and world facing. I also love a pushchair that allow you to change the colour and the raspberry has flavour packs that can be bought separately so you can mix and match or change for the seasons. My favourite feature is the box in the basket that can be used to store all your valuables.



Cupcake Babies

I won't say too much yet as I actually have one of these to review so will go into more details very soon but this is the world's smallest baby bath. It is actually inflatable and comes in a small carry case with a rubber duck toy.and is perfect for travelling. It is shaped like a cupcake case, hence the name. I also think this would make a fantastic photography prop! It is being released in the UK shortly. 

Of course there were lots of other great stalls I could spend all day talking about them but these are my top picks for anyone still hoping to visit the show!

  4. I love the look of the Stokke Trailz! I was only saying the other day that I would like 6 Tripp Trapps around my dining table, then there would be no arguments between the kids!
