Drool Baby Expo and Quinny Giveaway!!!!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

If there is one thing that I am always drooling over, it's got to be baby gear. From the minute I found out I was pregnant with the LM, I became completely amazed, and sometimes overwhelmed, by how may baby products that there were/are on the market. Some are completely necessary, some make life SO much easier, some are for pure luxury, and, of course, some are a bit "out there." I thought I knew everything, about everything, and I really was shocked when I went looking around for gear for baby number two, and found that there was even more cool stuff out there that I had never even heard of! 

This is why I am so excited about an incredible expo that's coming to Boston on May 31. Debuting at the Seaport Hotel, the Drool Baby Expo will be offering expecting, new, and even us 2nd and 3rd time parents (or anyone else who loves baby stuff as much as I do) the chance to check out the latest in baby gear while enjoying refreshments, complimentary spa services, workshops, and consultations. In addition to an expo floor that will be brimming with product introductions and demos, the evening promises to include educational workshops on a variety of topics, including fitness, nutrition, the benefits of storing cord blood, building the perfect baby registry, and green parenting. They will be offering personalized stroller matchmaking consultations and even car seat installation demonstrations (something I seriously need a refresher on!) In addition, all attendees will receive an awesome gift bag. Yes, you had me at complementary spa services!

Also, (and because everyone loves free stuff) raffles and giveaways will give attendees the opportunity to win some of the best baby items on the market. The best part is, many of the vendors attending the event will be offering one-night-only special offers – discounts and gifts with purchase – during the event. As far as I'm concerned, this seems like a one stop shop for all things baby!

I'm telling you Drool is going to be the place to be, and I can't think of a better mom's night out (you know I'll be there will my girlfriends!!) If you’d like to get all the details and preview the participating verdors out their website, droolbabyexpo.com, or on Facebook at facebook.com/droolbaby and on twitter @droolbaby. Participating vendors can be found here

To kick off the expo the FABULOUS folks over at Quinny are GIVING AWAY their super popular Quinny® Zapp Xtra™ to one of you lucky readers!!! (I feel a bit like Oprah here... you get a car, you get a car, you get a car!!!) In all seriousness, those of you with kids know that having a great stroller is the equivalent to a second car, and Quinny is at the top of the market when it comes to lightweight, durable, and multi-position strollers.  The Zapp Xtra™ features a reversible seat allowing baby to face mom or the world, which also reclines to multiple positions in both forward and rear facing mode. It is available in four fashions allowing parents and children to walk their way, which include Brown Boost, Rocking Black, Rebel Red, and Pink Emily. (I'm partial to the red myself.) Every stroller has 360 degree rotating wheels, with locks, and when used with the Maxi-Cosi® Mico infant car seat, it transforms into a highly maneuverable travel system for use from birth, allowing for a seamless transition from car to street (I can't even begin to tell you how necessary this is during those first few months.)


Just look at all the things this baby can do. 



I am so jealous that one of you will be walking away with this fabulous stroller!!!

I hope to see you all at the expo (I'll be the one waddling my way through the crowds.) Make sure to look for me there and say hello!!!

My two new favorite things? Drool and Quinny!!!!

Oooh! The Zapp Xtra is so versatile! I love the idea that you don't need to have a million strollers. Our snap n go got a lot of use but has become obsolete since moving my son out of the infant seat. I'm now debating between buying a BOB jogger and a cheapie umbrella or just a high quality umbrella. Looks like the Zapp would solve all our stroller issues! I didn't even know about quinny till now. Thanks Yum! :)

Rebecca said...

Um...I love the zapp. It's like my Mclaren but so much...COOLER!

Betsy said...

My friend has the Buzz, which is awesome, but the Zapp Xtra looks even better! Would love to win it for our newborn son- he's an IVF baby also, so we now have two boys and I know you are going to love having brothers as much as we have!

Carroll said...

Definitely the Zapp xtra! I love Quinny strollers and even have a dog that happens to be named Quinny!

I would love the quinny xtra in black. It would be perfect as an every day stroller for the city!

Emily R. said...

LOVE that Zapp Xtra! So cool. I wish I had had this stroller for the past 5 years!

Elizabeth (hernewdeal@gmail.com) said...

What a fun giveaway! My favorite is the Buzz, but I don't live in a big city anymore, so I'd probably like the Zapp the most! It's so much more attractive and looks more user friendly than the stroller we currently have.

MoodyFoody said...

I love the Zapp Xtra. I love that it can face forward or towards me. I also love the fact that the basket underneath has so much room. I am constantly battling to get the diaper bag out of the basket underneath my peg perego stroller.

Kimberly said...

I think the Quinny Senzz is pretty awesome. It looks like the ultimate umbrella stroller. I like that it has the modern design and still looks very functional.

Sarah said...

I love the Zapp Xtra. It looks like a great lightweight stroller with so many options and accessories. And a useful storage basket is beyond helpful!

Chrissie Warren said...

Wow, the Quinny is so cool!! It's very stylish and the seat has 3 forward and 2 rearward facing recline positions. Very cool! With number 2 due in November, this would be great!!

Calvins Mom said...

Zapp Xtra is my Quinny of choice - it is light and versatile - love that it's reversible

Mama J said...

What an amazing giveaway!!! I am so sad I am out of town this weekend and going to miss this expo. I bought our stroller when we were still country bumpkins in VT, and since moving to Boston I get a ton of stink-eye on the sidewalks trying to maneuver this behemoth thing. I would LOVE a stroller with a more urban-friendly profile for our travels around town. The Buzz looks like an amazing choice, but the Xtra would be wonderful too. Yay!
Hoping to cross paths with you in the city sometime!

Carrie J. said...

Love the Buzz 4!

grosmami said...

Wow, this is so timely! First baby is due in October, and we're totally overwhelmed by all of the baby gear out there. The Buzz 4 looks pretty cool to me!

Mama said...

So many fantastic strollers to choose from! I honestly like the Zapp Xtra best. Love that it can face forward and rear. But I also like the Senzz since it can recline! GREAT giveaway. Thanks so much!

p.s.) I'm dying to get to drool. Hoping I can get my ducks in a row and make it!
