7 W New York Winter Gift and Home Textiles Market Week was a great kick off to the New Year, with attendance up 25% and all signs pointing to a prosperous 2010. The success of the first ever NYC Baby & Kids Fair was yet another indicator of good business ahead. The two shows attracted a varied and notably enthusiastic group of attendees who checked out the trove of new and cutting edge wares in a variety of categories. In contrast to the city’s winter chill, inside 7 W, a feeling of spring was in the air.
i attended the first 7 W NYC Baby & Kids Fair earlier this week. I have been to so many trade shows over the past 30 years, but I have never attended a children’s trade event that offered as many perks to both buyers and exhibitors. Congratulations to the 7 W sales and management team, as well as the entire staff of the building, for hosting a successful and first-class premier event.

Once upon a time, children’s parties required only the basics… a few party games, some sweet treats, and kids ready for a good time. While fun and games still remain the focus, modern parties have evolved to include everything from pony rides and magicians to swag-heavy party bags! At The Giggle Guide™, we’d like to highlight some creative activity products that can help make a party memorable and meaningful, without touching the college fund. Check out these great options from Fresko’s Nuvo-Group, Makeit Products, MyDesign, and Minui. They’re perfect for a sleepover, birthday, holiday, or “rainy-day” celebration.
