There are always events happening in NYC. Literally every day there’s something cool and unique to see or do. One of the more impressive events I’ve attended recently had to have been Blogger Bash. Aside from the fact that it took place in a boat docked alongside the shores of Manhattan, there was just so much to get into, with a ton of great sponsors.
Within the event, there was a “mini” event that I really enjoyed the most. It was called BabyPalooza and it focused on with celebrity meet and greets, games, pampering and let’s not forget — plenty of giveaways! Some of the most well-known brands to moms mixed in with some awesome new companies were at Babypalooza to introduce you to their new products, engage with fun activations and discuss one-on-one how they would like to work with you in the future. It was hard to figure out which brand to head over to first with this incredible line-up!
A couple of brands’ style really stood out and caught my eye, both part of the DOM Family of brands. The first, évolur, is a brand-new nursery furniture collection with convertible designs that evolve from babyhood and beyond, such as 5-in-1 cribs and a hutch that converts into a bookshelf. The line is coveted by a ton of everyday parents as well as celebrities and was recently featured on the Ellen DeGeneres show’s “Mother’s Day” special. Created with moms in mind to meet their every need, évolur features innovative design, impeccable quality, and versatility; transitional style to suit every taste; unique functionality to adapt to the many stages of childhood and within the home; and high-quality materials and craftsmanship.
The best part for me was the amazing Windsor Crib and Dresser in Pewter Finish (Antique Bronze). It’s just so unique, it really looks awesome. Given the quality of the convertibility of the line, having a refined and stylish color option like this is a home run. You don’t have to worry about your kids being ‘too old” for this furniture. This furniture is primed and ready to evolve and grow with you and your family. Plus the low price point is sick. This is a no-doubter. Available at Amazon and BabiesRUs.
Another really cool line was Mia Moda’s line of baby gear includes European-styled baby strollers. These babies are simply built for today’s modern family with a fusion of function, fashion, longevity, and affordability. Celebrities like Christine Lakin and Amy Davidson stroll with the Marisa 3-in-1 Stroller, which grows with children from baby to toddler. It has dope features like a padded, reversible seat for parent-facing or forward-facing seating, a flat sleeper seat, conversion to carry cot, adjustable handlebar, and other high-tech features for safety, comfort, and convenience. To top it off, it was super lightweight (everyone couldn’t believe it) and easy to maneuver. It was even easy for me and some other taller guys in attendance to wheel this baby around. Nicely designed for sure.
While I loved the Marisa, the compact-folding Enzo Stroller was really awesome. The look was super unique, but the fact that it folded up so small that you could drop it into a bag blew my mind. It’s amazing how easy to use that stroller is. Seriously great style and amazing design. It really sets itself apart in so many ways.
The thing that struck me the most was that these brands seem to be trying to check off all the boxes. Some brands go very stylish and super high-end in pricing while some go for the more affordable pricing but maybe lack some of the bells and whistles many people really love to see. évolur and Mia Moda truly seem to be toeing the line of style, function, and price, trying to get the customer the best of all three. I like that. I like that a lot. Sure, more companies should be shooting for this balance, but so few do. DOM Family seems to be different, and thankfully so.
