There’s 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 Clek, and we hope you will join us to check out the seats and ask questions. In the meantime, here is a preview of what Clek is all about so you can get excited about what they will present at the JPMA Baby Show.
One of the biggest purchases we make for babies and young children is the car seat and booster seat. The seat you choose for your child is an investment in their future because it keeps them safe in the event of an accident. Car accidents are the leading cause of death in children ages 3-14 in North America. If we invested the time to educate ourselves to choose the right seat and make safe choices like extended rear facing and staying in a convertible seat long enough, perhaps those numbers would go down. One company that is leading the way in car seat technology design and safety is Clek. Their seats are extraordinarily safe and look great too.
New at Clek for 2017
Clek is known for the safety of their designs but their seats also stand out aesthetically. These seats are gorgeous and show off your kid’s personality or better match your car. There are a ton of color combos and designs to choose from, and they’ve got big news, even more colors are on the way! Yay!
Woodlands – This color is available on the Foonf, Fllo, and Oobr. It is a military green color on a black shell.
Cadet – This color is available on the Foonf and Oobr. It is a military green on a white shell.
Prince – This color is available on the Foonf, Fllo, and Oobr. It is purple on a black shell.

Move Forward with Clek
Clek is a premier child car safety company. This company is forward thinking and wants to help you and your family move down whatever road you are on with the highest safety standards possible. Not all car seats and boosters are created equal, and Clek is top of the line. They utilize expert engineering and design to make every detail of their seats matter.
Clek offers five seats to meet your family’s car safety needs. Your child can be comfortable, stylish, and most importantly, amazingly safe from birth (even preemies at 5 lbs!) until they are safely able to ride in a car with no booster. Clek has created amazing safety features like an anti-rebound bar for rear facing and their REACT safety system that increases safety for children once they are forward facing. The fabric on Clek seats is innovative. Their Crypton Super Fabrics permanently protect against stains, moisture, and odor. The fabric is also safe, and you know it is because it is GREENGUARD Select Certified with no brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. When you are done with your Clek, you can recycle it with their recycling program.
Foonf: This is Clek’s most well known seat. In fact, it is known as “The Mother of All Car Seats.” It has the best in class safety features like extended rear facing installation. Kids can rear face until their fourth birthday. In rear facing mode, the Foonf has an anti-rebound bar that improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat. In the event of a crash this protects your child’s head. When forward facing, your child is protected with Clek’s REACT safety system. It is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure with advanced side impact protection. The Foonf is crash tested to NCAP, which simulates forces experienced in extreme collisions.
Fllo: Like Foonf, Fllo was designed for rear facing, and with the infant insert, babies can start riding in this seat at 5 lbs. The compact design of this seat is great for large families. Three seats can be installed next to each other. This seat is not quite as wide so it can be installed in difficult spots like bucket seats or in the center. Rear face up to 50 lbs, and at forward facing, your child is safer with the EACT technology (Energy-Absorbing Crumple Technology). This seat was also NCAP tested.
Oobr: This is such a cool booster seat. It is designed exactly like the seat in your car but it is the perfect size for your child, featuring the elemental safety system that provides protection from all angles. Belt guides improve belt positioning on your childs hips and shoulders. Your child is raised four inches and is held in a safer position while riding in the car. While you shouldn’t rush switching to a booster, once your child outgrows the limit on his convertible seat, the full back booster from Clek is ideal. Clek’s rigid LATCH locks the booster seat into place using your vehicles LATCH anchorage system, making this seat very stable, even in a crash.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this brief glimpse into the amazing seats offered by Clek. These seats are already the coolest looking seats on the market, and we are swooning over the new colors! If you want to see them in action, we want to show them to you. Don’t forget to follow along with Elena at the JPMA Baby Show for a special presentation at the Clek booth. If you are in the Anaheim area, make sure to visit Clek at their booth, #2051.
