A stroller is one of the biggest purchases new parents will make, and with all the choices available, deciding which model to buy can be overwhelming. When shopping for a stroller, one decides which features are important. Planning to run or walk trails with the baby? Choose a sport model with sturdy wheels and a streamlined frame. Ride public transportation frequently? A light stroller that can be folded and lifted easily is the ticket. Many parents also opt for “travel systems” rather than just strollers alone. Today we focus on products from Britax, Buggygear, 3 Sprouts and JP Lizzy.
More retailers than ever rely on immediate buys to stock their shelves in an effort to stretch their budgets and reduce risk. To meet this shift in buying cycles, more manufacturers are offering specials on remaining goods. However, time’s running out to promptly plan to attend major trade events to survey and strategize for a profitable future.
The ever-popular Snack Happens™ Reusable Snack & Everything Bag is a must-have for back to school shoppers. Stock up on customer favorite fabrics like Hoot, Dino-Mite!, Cupcake Couture, and Whale Watching Blue, perfect for lunch bags, stowing supplies in desks or backpacks, and keeping snacks prepared for after-school activities. With zippered closures and lining sewn separately, these eco-friendly carriers make cleaning and reusing simple for busy families. No messy, noisy Velcro, plus they’re machine washable!
One aspect of European childrearing that attracts many Americans is the sense of adventure. Euro parents tend to include their children in outdoor activities from an early age, creating an atmosphere of exploration and fostering a sense of independence in their little ones. This is why European baby gear companies offer so many great travel products, and why some of those companies have found a home in America. Kiddy is a company that offers high-quality, durable baby gear for parents on the go.

I am looking forward to attending the ABC Spring Educational Conference at South Point, Las Vegas on May 7-9. After attending so many trade events over the last 30+ years, I enjoy learning more about the children’s business, and especially seeing new things that may take me by surprise. The ABC SEC is one event that allows buyers, manufacturers, reps and media to get to know more about each other. The element of surprise is always part of new experiences. That’s why I asked several exhibitors these questions: “What would someone be surprised to know about you?” and “What will buyers be surprised to see in your 2013 line?”
With Spring in the air, it’s time to have a little fun. Get creative and give your window or in-store displays a makeover!
