Family Time Magazine is expecting its 13th annual Baby Expo Extravaganza event!
Family Time Magazine’s Baby Expo is the biggest and best event of its kind in the Chicagoland area, on Saturday, September 9th, 2017 from 10am – 2pm at Moraine Valley Community College (9000 W. College Pkwy., Building M, Palos Hills, IL 60465).
Whether you are expecting a little one or already have children, your family will enjoy this event for one-stop shopping and gear for babies of all ages. The Baby Expo always features the newest and most unique merchandise and services available for the care of babies. Some of the featured products at this year’s expo are not yet available in stores and the first 500 people to attend the expo will receive Free Gift Bags!
“There is nothing more precious than a baby,” states Caroline O’Connell, organizer of the Baby Expo and publisher of Family Time Magazine. “I try to get a little bit of everything for families, things you cannot get at a regular store.”
This year’s Expo will feature over 40 booths where parents can find baby medical services, baby care supplies, stylish diaper bags, professional photographers, childcare centers, safe furniture, baby/children’s clothing, neighborhood parks and museums, enrichment programs, child book stores, libraries and more. Don’t miss out on our expert demonstrations about car seat safety, strollers, high chairs, pack and plays and more! We also have special guest speakers providing valuable information on subjects other than products. Come and listen to Janel Hughes, Breastfeeding expert, talk about Breastfeeding Week. “This years theme for World Breastfeeding Week 2017,(celebrated each year in August) is Sustaining Breastfeeding Together. The relationship that we have is a perfect example of networking for the common good of helping women breastfeeding in the Chicago and South Suburban areas.”
Fun and Exciting giveaways will be announced at a later date! Last year, we gave away a top of the line, 3- in -1 Stroller/Trailer from Allen Sports! This is an annual event you surely don’t want to miss!
We will be giving away some of the best new products for babies including a Diono Radian RXT Car Seat, a $360 value! Also, we have a Maru and Friends doll and a Babies R’ Us gift card!
