Get Ready – Here Comes The Baby Show

MEDIA RELEASE AUGUST 2012

Get Ready – Here Comes The Baby Show

Tickets are now on sale for the Baby Show, which will bring a huge range of products and services to Auckland’s parents and parents-to-be from 26 to 28 October 2012 at the ASB Showgrounds.

The Baby Show is the new brand of what was the Parent and Child Show (New Zealand’s most successful and popular parenting exhibition since 1993) and comes complete with a fabulously useful new website at www.babyshow.co.nz.

This event is a one-stop-shop that enables pregnant couples and parents of babies and pre-school children to browse, try out, and purchase hundreds of essential products and services directly from the companies that provide them.

The show website has been completely redesigned to enable visitors to research the show before they go, check out the companies that are exhibiting, search for the products they need, and find show-only specials that will save them real money. The website also enables visitors to compile personalised itineraries and show floor plans they can print out or share via social media.

There’ll be a huge range of top exhibitors at the show including Mumanu pregnancy pillows, Nuk breastfeeding equipment, Safe T Sleep sleepwraps, Babu merino babywear, Slumbersac baby sleeping bags, ‘4 in 1’ beds from The Cot Store, Features Forever baby casting, Dream Au Pair service, and heaps more. There will be a ton of big brands at the show too, like Pumpkin Patch, Baby Factory, Huggies, Mustella, Avent, The Sleep Store and Treasures.

The show provides invaluable, FREE advice in the form of all-day seminars from leading parenting and early childhood experts. This year’s line-up includes TV personality and parenting guru Nigel Latta, ‘Green Smoothie’ advocate Victoria Boutenko, author of ‘Oh Baby’ Kathy Fray, ‘baby whisperer’ Sharlene Poole, Kitty Ho on infant massage and Samantha Thurlby-Brooks on sleeping comfortably in the third trimester.

All of this amazing content is wrapped up in a low-pressure, family-friendly environment that offers lots of comforting and convenient extras beyond just awesome products and advice. There is FREE all-day entertainment on the main stage for the littlies, extra-wide aisles so buggies can pass in both directions without snarl-ups, rest areas dotted throughout the show, and a well-equipped parenting room for nappy changing, feeding and chilling out.

Buy your ticket online and save – online tickets are only $13, gates sales are $15. Go to www.babyshow.co.nz.

Gordon Campbell: On That $4 Billion Hit To National’s Economic Cred

National released its economic and tax policy last Friday. Weirdly, the plan was announced right at the end of the news week, when whatever impact it managed to generate would be likely to dissipate over the weekend. Well…. that now seems all for the best. The plan is now known to have a $4 billion hole in it. Apparently, National used outdated figures for the amount it stood to save from NOT paying into the Super Fund. Amusingly, the $4 billion mistake was almost exactly the same size as the $4.7 million that National still promises to give away in tax cuts... More>>
