The Baby Show Manchester – What to look out for

The Baby Show is coming to Manchester this weekend! It is at Event City, right next to the Trafford Centre from Friday 31st Aug to Sun 2nd September. Opening times are 9.30am – 4.30pm, daily.

On The Door tickets are priced at £16.50 each, under 12’s are free. You can buy your tickets online for a better deal. Enter the discount code MB195 to get a ticket for just £8.50, or 2 for £16!

I attended The Baby Show last year, and enjoyed myself a lot. There are lots of companies there you will have heard of, as well as lots of small companies, who sell great products too.

This year, I have done my homework, and have got a list of things I absolutely must see and play with.

Top of my list is the new Oyster MAX tandem pushchair. I know, I know. I am a pushchair-o-holic. But seriously – this one looks amazing.

It even comes in MotherGeek Purple… It’s a sign!

(PSST…Don’t tell DaddyGeek I am eyeing this up – he will probably divorce me if I buy another pushchair)!

The Oyster Max has a carrycot, which is perfect for Sydney… erm, I mean perfect for newborns!
It also accepts the Oyster, Britax Baby Safe and Maxi Cosi infant car seats, and the seat units can be positioned in a large range of combinations, and it can be used as a single too.

It is expected to be available towards the end of this year or early next year. The RRP is expected to be £399 for the pushchair, and £129 for the additional seat unit. I can’t find the price of the Carrycot anywhere online at the moment, so that question is on my list. Had this pushchair been out 3 months ago, I have no doubt I’d have bought this instead of the Vibe. The fact it can be used as a travel system really excites me!

The next thing I am looking forward to is the Funky Giraffe Bibs stand. We are HUGE fans of their dribble bibs. I reviewed them last year, and I have bought lots since then for Sam. Now it’s Sydney’s turn to get stocked up!! They are amazing quality, and I usually get 10 for £20.50 when I order online. I can’t wait to get Sydney some of the girly designs! This is Sam about a year ago wearing his first ever Funky Giraffe Bib! 12 months on, it is still going strong!

You can find Funky Giraffe Bibs at stand C14.

I am also excited about the Mothercare stand. They will be showcasing their new Little Bird collection – which I am a HUGE fan of. The new Myleene Klass collection will also be on show. Mothercare have 10% off everything at the Baby Show, so it’s a great time to stock up!
This is some of the Little Bird Collection:

You can find Mothercare at stand G50.

I am also excited about seeing lots of the smaller companies too, as well as old favourites including Fisher-Price, Cosatto, Babies R Us, John Lewis and many more besides.

I was sad to hear CuddleDry wouldn’t be there this year, but they are offering 20% off everything online, using discount code PRESCHOOL, so I am certain to snap up a thing or two there this weekend, as well!!

This is not a sponsored post, I am just sharing some of the products and offers I am looking forward to tomorrow.

I will try to post something tomorrow night once I have seen the smaller companies too.
