Between the 19 – 21st May, Sydney Olympic Park is hosting the Pregnancy Babies & Children’s Expo. For all first time parents or veteran owners of cute little scatter-rugrats, this is the right place to be.
This free event (register in advance) lets you talk face to face with industry exhibitors and test products first hand. It’s all about trying before buying, or before little toddler fingers get their sticky paws on these innovations. From toys, cleanliness (is there such a thing with kids around?), clothing, maternity products, dad helper inventions and more, the expo is full to the brim. If you’ve been to day one and still in a pickle, your pre registered entry is valid for you to revisit the expo again before it ends since the exhibitor range is vast, including feeding, lifestyle, furniture and financing.
With trusted experts and speakers available, it’s an ideal time to get free information about before, during and after that munchkin comes out. Also remember that you’ll be amongst potential perfect parents that’ll throw tips your way. Or if you believe you’re parent of the year, then you can offer your own guidance to expecting mums and dads. You’ll be able to spot them easily from the confused and panic ridden look on their faces.
Whether you’re in a trimester phase or your little angels are a few years old, every parent needs a breather. The expo will have extra wide aisles for prams alongside an abundance of rest stations and baby care rooms. So no panic if that nappy (or diaper) starts filling up fast – the expo has you covered with facilities. When everyone’s scrubbed up again, kids can enjoy the Imagination Play Area or have face painting, awe in the toddler kindy Gymbaroo mini circuit or check out the Golden Ridge animal farm.
Done and need a break? A short drive away and you’ll arrive in the tranquility of Cremorne Point, relaxing as our guest at Cremorne Point Manor. If you’re looking for accommodation with a garden for the kids to keep blowing off hot air, check out our sister hotel Glenferrie Lodge. They have a huge guest-only garden and a patio for you to chill with a glass of wine, while the kids go bonkers in the big play area.
