We thought we would give you a little update on what we have been up to lately here in HQ. In last months update we had daylight robbery and streakers, this month we have Las Vegas pool parties and award ceremonies. The baby industry is far more exciting than people think 🙂
Of the recent Creeper Crawlers activities, the highlight was the trip to the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas!
Some of the team were lucky enough to travel to the US to see what new products were coming to the market very soon. The ABC Kids Expo is held in the Las Vegas Convention Centre and is attended by over 14,000 people each year- the biggest baby event in USA.
Each day we walked the 8 miles of show (learning quickly that heels were a bad, bad idea) where we spotted some new products that are sure to cause a stir in the baby space. Some that are great and some not so great :). Here are the top 3 products that stood out to us. Let us know what you think.
This product is a book and soundtrack that you can use to help prepare your pet for the new arrival.
Hands free pumping kit- We think the picture explains this better than we ever could.
For us this was the product that stood out the most and seemed to go down a treat at the show. The new stroller from GB Baby- just watch the video and you will see why. Like this stroller, sometimes you come across a product at these shows that would make you want to have another baby- but sometimes you also come across products that really don’t. 😉
Each evening we were lucky enough to attend industry functions that just happened to be in our hotel. We stayed in the SLS Las Vegas which is perfect for anybody attending shows in the convention centre as it has its own monorail station and is only 2 stops away.
This allowed us time to have the obligatory poolside cocktail after the show and soak our feet (and send some pics back to the office to make the rest of the team jealous) before getting ready for the evening events.
At the ABC Kids industry party we met up with a friend of ours Jamie Grayson- better known as The Baby Guy NYC. Jamie is Americas leading baby blogger / baby gear expert and if you are not following him- do! He is very entertaining and an expert in all things baby! We finally got to show him our newest products and he loved it 🙂 we are delighted to say we will be working on another joint project very soon.
Another event held in the SLS was the Modern Brands Pool Party- where we had a great night thanks to our friends at “ezpz”. This was the greatest party, with amazing food and a free bar..
The photo booth was the highlight and of course we took full advantage of it. 🙂
Although it was an intense few days we managed to celebrate a successful trip with a little bottle of bubbly by the pool. 😉
After all the fun and craziness of Las Vegas it was time for a quick overnight at home with some family time squeezed in before we were back to the airport the next morning and off to London for the Baby Show. After another day of meetings and following the meetings in the US also things are starting to get very real and very exciting for our new products. We can’t wait for the launch. Watch this space.
A week later we were delighted to attend the Maternity and Infant Awards Ceremony in Dublin where one of our fab new products was a finalist in the feeding products category- that’s right our new products are not crawling related, that’s all we can tell you at the moment but we are getting so much closer to the big reveal. Any ideas?
On another note we have joined Periscope- we were introduced to it by our American friends and we love it! It is going to be huge here too. You can get the app and follow us through our twitter account @creepercrawlers. This is a live streaming service so you will be able to get real time info from us and see what we are up to.
