Theres a seriously cool event about to happen in Anaheim, California: the JPMA Baby Show 2017! This world class trade show features the best of the best when it comes to products for families. This show combines an educational conference, trade show, and consumer day. The JPMA Baby Show runs May 9-13th. Like most trade shows, it is for industry insiders, but on May 13th there is a consumer day at the show! If you are in the Anaheim area, come check it out for yourself on May 13th.
We have some amazing brands that we will feature from the show. 2,000 to 3,000 attendees will be there, and our Managing Editor, Elena, is one of them. Elena is going to go live on Daily Mom’s Facebook from the JPMA Baby Show next week. Elena will have a special Facebook live event with the cool people from b.box, and we hope you will join us to check out their products and ask questions. In the meantime, here is a preview of what b.box is all about so you can get excited about what they will present at the JPMA Baby Show.
As little ones begin to find themselves, it becomes apparent to moms and dads that they are going to need some gear to make feeding time easier. B.box is an Australian-based child product company that is committed to creating products that are simple for both parents and kids to use. They want to promote independence while eating, so they design their products to perfectly fit little hands and little mouths. They strive to make their products fun and convenient, designing them with bright colors and making sure that parents have everything they need to take meals with them. B.box is a one-stop shop for all things meal time!
New for 2017
The first thing you’ll hand your child when they are ready to start eating more independently is their own set of utensils. Oftentimes the spoon or fork might sit unused in one hand while little fingers pick up food in the other, but it all works together to promote independent eating habits. b.box’s Toddler Cutlery Set was designed in conjunction with a leading occupational therapist so as to ensure that the utensils would be easy for little hands to hold.
The fork is designed to fit the size and shape of little mouths, and its shovel shape helps your child to get food onto it. Both the spoon and fork are made to give children maneuverability and control while eating even the angle between the head and handle was designed to ensure correct hand to mouth positioning while eating.
These cutlery pieces come with a carrying case for mealtime on the go, and come in colors such as Ocean Breeze, Strawberry Shake, Passion Splash, and Lemon Sherbet.
The divided plate is a perfect compliment to the Toddler Cutlery set. It allows for children to explore different tastes and textures independently by giving each food its own space. It also helps parents manage portion sizes. It has a non-slip base and easy grip sides, making it perfect for the busy toddler who likes to move and do things by themselves.
The divided plate also comes in Ocean Breeze, Strawberry Shake, Passion Splash, and Lemon Sherbet. All b.box meal time products are BPA, Phthalate, and PVC free. They are also dishwasher safe for easy clean up.
One thing all parents can use from time to time is organization. B.box’s Diaper Caddy offers a light and portable changing station so that you can have your supplies on hand wherever you go. It comes with two open storage compartments for easy access, as well as a small drawer. Each Diaper Caddy comes with a coordinating changing pad as well, so you can be sure you have a clean space to change your little one every single time.
The Diaper Caddy is a versatile organizational tool. Not only is it great as a diaper changing station, but it can also be used for any household organization. Use it in your office, in your kitchen, or even as an art caddy stocked with crayons, markers, and (if you dare) paint! The Diaper Caddy comes in four home friendly colors like Blue Lagoon, Choc Chip, Mellow Yellow, Pretty in Pink, and Retro Chic, so it will be sure to go with your decor no matter which way you decide to use it.
Brand new for 2017 is b.box’s new Smock Bib. This full size, wearable bib is made to keep meals off your child’s clothes. Its unique design covers your child’s entire body – including their arms and legs – so they can eat without getting the mess all over them. It’s even great for messy art projects! Its water-proof design makes it easy to clean but it is also machine washable if needed. It comes with its own carrying pouch too, which makes it easier to take with you when you’re on the go.
The adjustable neck and wrist straps ensure that your child will be comfortable wearing the Smock Bib and no food will get inside of it. Sizing ranges from 6 months to 18 months so you will be able to keep the Smock Bib in your arsenal for a long time! As always with b.box products, the Smock Bib is BPA, Phthalate, and PVC free.
It comes in sweet colors such as Ocean Breeze, Passion Splash, Strawberry Shake, and Lemon Sherbet which coordinate perfectly with b.box’s toddler cutlery set and divided plate. The Smock Bib from b.box is so new that it isn’t available online yet. But be sure to check us out on Facebook Live when we hit up the JPMA Baby Show on May 10th and 11th as we talk to b.box about all their products, including the new Smock Bib!
