For someone unfamiliar with Stokke®, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Stokke® is an innovative Norwegian company offering a complete collection of premium products for children that reflect Scandinavian design at its best. Stokke®’s products promote bonding between parent and child and ensure healthy development for young children. For over eighty years, Stokke® has combined its love for design with the latest technology to make beautiful, thoughtfully designed products that not only grow with your family, but bring you and your baby closer.

Tell us about Stokke®. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?

Founded in Ålesund Norway in 1932, Stokke® began as a manufacturer of high-quality furniture. The iconic Tripp Trapp® Chair was its first product for children, which launched in 1972. Since 2006, Stokke® has focused exclusively on designing premium children’s furniture and equipment within the highchair, stroller, baby carrier, home textiles, and nursery segments.

What are the most popular and newest products from Stokke®?

Stokke® is best known for its iconic Tripp Trapp chair, Xplory stroller, and Sleepi crib. Stokke® recently debuted the Xplory Black, which is its signature Xplory with an all black chassis.

What sets Stokke® apart in the baby marketplace?

Stokke’s values remain deeply rooted in its Scandinavian heritage and commitment to craftsmanship and quality.

Stokke® revolutionized the stroller category with the launch of the Stokke® Xplory®: introducing the concept of higher, parent-facing seating to the industry. The first stroller of its kind, Stokke® Xplory® was a true game changer. The unique height-adjustability is designed to bring your baby close. Today, it is Stokke’s signature stroller.

The ingenious Tripp Trapp® Chair created by Norwegian designer Peter Opsvik did something completely new; it gave children an ergonomic seat of their own, one that would grow with them. This made it possible for children to comfortably join their family at the table for connection and bonding. Its timeless design remains as relevant and innovative today as it was over forty years ago.

Protect Your Child’s Long-Term Health With StemCyte

Protect Your Child’s Long-Term Health With StemCyte

RESIZE NY Baby Show - 1All parents want their kids to be safe and healthy. But unless you have supermom or superdad powers, there are some things that you unfortunately cannot protect your child from, such as sickness. Imagine if you could purchase “insurance” now that you could use in the future if your child ever gets sick. Well that insurance is umbilical cord banking and you can. The blood from the umbilical cord is rich in stem cells and has been used to treat over 80 diseases to date. StemCyte, a global leader in private and public cord banking, offers parents the opportunity to preserve their baby’s potentially life-saving stem cells.

What’s more, StemCyte will be at the upcoming New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.

The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the NEW YORK BABY SHOW is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!

Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.

We spoke with a member of the StemCyte team, Christina Zhu, to learn more about the company and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.

For someone unfamiliar with StemCyte, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

StemCyte is a global leading cord blood therapeutic company that offers public and private cord blood banking. StemCyte is dedicated to helping the world’s physicians save more lives by providing high-quality, safe, and effective stem cell transplantation and therapy to all patients in need.

Tell us about StemCyte. When did it start? How has it evolved over time?

StemCyte began its corporate “life” as a Public Umbilical Cord Blood (UCB) Bank with a mission to create the largest, most racially diverse UCB bank in the world to serve ALL patients in need. StemCyte has stayed true to this mission with its operations in the U.S.A., Taiwan, and India.  No other UCB bank has accomplished a similar level of diversity or has treated as many patients around the world. StemCyte is truly an International UCB stem cell therapeutics company, having shipped over 2,000 UCB units from its public bank to leading hospitals around the world.

The culture of StemCyte and the attitude of our employees is based on this mission, and the same is true in the U.S.A., Taiwan, and India. Because our “roots” are as a Public UCB Bank, we operate by the highest standards in the world, and each unit that we collect and save—public and private—is treated in the same way. For example, as if that specific unit will be used to save a life in the future. The result is that StemCyte provides the BEST service to our customers, and gives them peace of mind and the utmost confidence that their child’s UCB is being handled by the best UCB professionals in the world.

What are the most popular and newest products from StemCyte?

StemCyte currently offers cord blood banking at costs starting at $1,195 with an annual storage fee of $150 per year, and cord blood and cord tissue banking at costs starting at $1,990 with an annual storage fee of $275 per year. StemCyte offers affordable payment plans, using the client’s credit card to pay the initial enrollment fee over the course of six months to one year.

Also, StemCyte offers a virtual baby shower program that gives family, friends, and co-workers of our clients the opportunity to donate towards the cost of banking. Our “Refer-A-Friend” program is also a great way for clients to pass on their positive experience with StemCyte by recommending StemCyte to their friends. When they do, they will receive either a free year of storage for themselves, or they can give it as a gift to their friend, or receive $100 cash back when their friend banks with StemCyte.

What sets StemCyte apart from other companies?

The fact that we have a very large and diverse Public UCB Bank—a valuable asset that StemCyte owns—has allowed us to develop an Advanced Therapeutics initiative and to partner with leading researchers and clinicians in the U.S.A., Taiwan, HK, China, and India. This initiative has led to clinical trials to develop UCB to treat Thalassemia, chronic and acute stroke, as well as chronic and acute spinal cord injury. And this is only the beginning. No other UCB company in the world has a multinational presence and no other UCB company in the world can state that they have our three component business model.

What can parents except to see from Stemcyte at the New York Baby Show?

StemCyte cord blood specialists will be onsite and ready to answer any questions expectant parents might have regarding cord blood and/or cord tissue banking. Expectant parents can always call 866.389.4659 or visit StemCyte.com for more information.

You No Longer Have To Choose: Transport Your Kids In Keenz’s Stroller Wagon

You No Longer Have To Choose: Transport Your Kids In Keenz’s Stroller Wagon

RESIZE JPMA ImageEvery new parent has to figure out the best way to get around town with their little one. Some parents use carriers, others a stroller, and some may just cradle their baby in their arms. But, have you ever thought about a wagon? Enter Keenz Stroller Wagon. The Korean brand is showcasing its recently launched stroller wagon at the New York Baby Show. The stroller wagon effortlessly combines all the capabilities that parents love about a stroller and a wagon into one ingenious product. That means you can travel with your kid and have enough space for larger items. And if you’re wondering if it’s safe, the answer is yes. The stroller wagon passed the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association’s rigorous child safety testing to get certified.

Keenz Stroller Wagon will be at the New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.

The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!

We spoke with a member of the Keenz Stroller Wagon team, Shannon Adams, National Sales Manager, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.

For someone unfamiliar with the culture of Keenz Stroller Wagon, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Keenz Stroller Wagon has set itself apart within the stroller market as a product that has the best characteristics of a stroller with the utility function of a wagon. We have built a product that safely transports children with a five-point harness that keeps them secure when they are clipped in. The stroller wagon also has storage for all the “stuff” that a parent has to bring along when they are out and about. Our mission is to offer the best option for parents, grandparents, nannies, and child care professionals to move children safely while still being able, with ease, to carry all the items that need to accompany them out on the road. Keenz is one of only 18 companies in the stroller category that holds a JPMA certification, which is a highly sought after safety designation.

Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?

Keenz Stroller Wagon started in Korea several years ago and made its debut in the U.S. just last year. When we first started Keenz U.S., our initial challenge was to take a very successful Korean product and make it suitable for the U.S. market. That meant we had to obtain certification for our product as a stroller. Along with making adjustments to the harness system, we made several upgrades to the existing product. We made it lighter, more compact, and added spring suspension to all four wheels. After making these changes, we submitted our product for testing to the JPMA for certification so that we could sell to any retailer that requires that in-depth testing for safety measures. I’m happy to say that we obtained JPMA certification as a stroller in late December 2016 and in February 2017 launched the Keenz 7S Premium Stroller Wagon for the U.S. market.

RESIZE Wagon with GearWhat are the most popular and newest products from Keenz Stroller Wagon?

Good question! We just launched the 7S Premium Stroller Wagon as our initial product. However, we have various accessories that are available for the 7s such as a rain cover, matching cooler, and clamp on cup holders. Later this year, we will be introducing mosquito netting, a wind cover, and a Beach Wheel set that increases the versatility of the 7s.

What sets Keenz Stroller Wagon apart in the baby marketplace?

Quite frankly, there is nothing like the Keenz 7s in the baby marketplace. Please see keenz.us for a list of items that sets our Keenz 7S Stroller Wagon apart from our competition.

What can parents expect from Keenz Stroller Wagon at the New York Baby Show?

At the show, attendees will have an opportunity to see a cutting edge stroller wagon that is just being launched in the U.S. They will have an opportunity to buy the wagon for themselves, or if they are a retailer for their store. They will also have an opportunity to break the stroller wagon down and reassemble it. This will give any user the ability to experience just how easy the Keenz Stroller Wagon is to use.

Kids Ride Safely With Safe Traffic System’s Safety Gear

Kids Ride Safely With Safe Traffic System’s Safety Gear

RESIZE group-4Most parents would say that their number one concern is the safety of their children. And Safe Traffic System, Inc. agrees. The company’s sole mission is to protect your precious babies while in a motor vehicle. The brand makes state-of-the-art vests and booster seats that meet federal safety standards to keep your child safe while on the road.

What’s more, Safe Traffic System, Inc. will be at the upcoming New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.

We spoke with a member of the Safe Traffic System team, Vera Fullaway, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.

For someone unfamiliar with Safe Traffic System, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Safe Traffic System, Inc. was founded with the sole purpose of protecting kids, from toddlers to teens, in motor vehicles with a safe, legal innovative type of restraint system that is known as the RideSafer Travel Vest.

Our mission is to provide convenient-to-use, comfortable, portable, and lightweight child restraint systems for passenger vehicles. Our RideSafer Travel vests have become a very popular alternative to booster seats. We are not anti-booster seat; we do manufacture our own Delighter Booster, which is currently one of the lightest full size backless boosters. We simply offer an alternative: a vest for children to ride safely and more comfortably.

When our company was developing a strategy and focus in 2000, we looked at many studies such as the NASS (National Automotive Sampling System). It reported that among the 6,300,000 children involved in car accidents from 1999 to 2008, approximately 50% of them used either adult lap and shoulder belts only, or no restraint system at all. In the rear seats, most passenger vehicles had lap only seatbelts, which compounded the problem for children since booster seats can ONLY be used with lap and shoulder belts.

Currently, even though cars have lap and shoulder belts in the rear seats, we are finding that most children do not ride in booster seats as long as they need to because children equate booster seats to “baby seats” when they reach early elementary school age. The RideSafer Travel vests offer a much more “grown up” system for them, and at the same time offer better protection for them than the adult seat belt alone. We are also seeing that cars are getting smaller, conventional car seats for children are getting larger and heavier, and it has become very challenging to place three children in the rear seat of many vehicles. Our Ridesafer Travel Vests solve that problem easily.

Tell us about the company’s background. When did Safe Traffic System start and how has it evolved since then?

Founded in 2000, our first patented product included a vehicle seat that had the ability to face the rear of the vehicle in the front seat for the ultimate protection of all children. As mentioned above, we soon found that the incorrectly restrained child problem to be much more extensive than our vehicle seat could potentially solve so we decided to shift our focus to the booster-age child.

To celebrate our 16th birthday, we launched the Generation 4 (Gen4) RideSafer Travel Vests. The Gen4 vest is our latest design that offers more comfort and better protection than ever.

What are the most popular and newest products from Safe Traffic System?

We only manufacture the RideSafer Travel Vests and Delighter Booster Seats.

What sets Safe Traffic System apart from other car safety companies?

All child restraint systems that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 performance requirements protect children. The RideSafer platform of child restraints is lighter in weight, easier to transport and move from car-to-car, and is “safety a child can wear.” There are no comparable, legal products in the world that meet all of the safety standards for which we hold certification. Our global certifications are FMVSS 213 in the U.S.A., ECE R-44.04 in Europe, China Compulsory Certification (CCC), and Korea Compulsory Certification (KCL).

What can parents expect to see from Safe Traffic System at the New York Baby Show?

We are very excited to announce the launch and availability of the RideSafer Delight Vests, our 4th generation of improvement in design and safety components; and the Delighter Booster Seat—the lightest full size booster on the market!

We spoke with owner and CEO Valerie Best to learn more about the company and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.

For someone unfamiliar with Sew Trendy™, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Sew Trendy™ specializes in designer maternity gowns, girls’ dresses, bridal, boudoir fashion, and newborn photography props that are all made here in the U.S.A. We stand beside a group of phenomenal women who strive to help every girl, in every walk of life, to feel beautiful, elegant, and empowered not only through our products but through the relationships we create with every client that we have the pleasure of coming into contact with.

Tell us about Sew Trendy™.  When did it start? How has it evolved since then?

Our story is truly a phenomenal one. I actually had no background in fashion or design, had just finished the police academy, and was studying towards a degree in psychology and criminology. As a gift, my grandfather (I’m grandpa’s girl!) gave me a sewing machine in 2012 when I was expecting my second little girl with the expectation that I make doll clothes for her (I always loved crafting). A photographer friend asked me to make a fitted lace gown for a maternity client, and I said, “Sure!” (I can’t is not in my vocabulary!) The gown was so popular with her photographer friends that I started an Etsy store to keep up with the orders. Within four months I hired four seamstresses, all of whom were stay-at-home moms taking care of small children.

Over the next several years, we grew out of my basement and into a warehouse. As time passed, my mission was to continue to employ stay-at-home mothers and to provide them with a working income, health benefits, and 401k so they can stay home and continue to care for their children rather than send them to day care. Now, we have grown into a second warehouse with 45 amazing employees, and have the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing photographers, mothers, and children from around the world!

What are the most popular and newest products from Sew Trendy™? 

Our gowns are always a huge hit, as they are stunning and comfortable (After three babies, I don’t want anything pinching my sides. Mamas out there know what I’m talking about!). Our newest gown is the Selena and can be worn for both non-maternity and expecting mamas. Our Emerlie, Miriam, and Krysten gowns are always a client favorite.

For children, our Henrietta and Marie gowns are the preferred styles of our little princesses (the twirl is out of this world!). We also offer Mommy & Me gown sets for children and newborns, which are amazing for coordinating wardrobes at special events and photo sessions.

We offer hundreds of products on our website, so it is truly difficult to choose our favorites!

What sets Sew Trendy™ apart in the marketplace?

First, our quality is next to none. All of our fabrics are custom made for Sew Trendy™, and are created to rigorous specifications set by myself and my team. All of our products are handmade here in Utah, allowing me to have direct control over the quality of our products.

Our employees are truly invested in our company and our mission. We provide an opportunity for them to be home with their children and still provide for their family, which not only affects their life, but makes a difference in their children’s lives as well. Our employees don’t just work for Sew Trendy™, they deeply love and appreciate this company. Our staff encompass everything we stand for: empowering women in every walk of life. And that is truly what sets us apart from anyone else in the industry.

What can parents expect from Sew Trendy™ at the New York Baby Show?

While Sew Trendy™ will not be providing a physical shopping experience at the New York Baby Show, we will be there with special discounts to use on our website, and look books for attendees to peruse through the products we offer. PLUS, we will have a few amazing mommies-to-be who will be making an appearance in our gowns so our new fans can see them in person!

Tell us about WaterPura’s background. When did it start? How has it evolved since then?

My idea for WaterPura started in 2013 after I was blessed with my beautiful, redheaded baby boy, Archie. I knew I would have to be careful with his sensitive skin. Although I was very conscientious about keeping his bottom clean, he developed a terrible diaper rash. I started to think that the baby wipes I was using were part of the problem. Even though they claimed to be “natural,” the back of the package looked like all the rest—an alarming list of chemical ingredients.

I switched immediately to soft cloths and water, and my baby got better. So I asked myself, “Why can’t there be a baby wipe with just water and no chemicals?” And that’s how WaterPura began.

The first thing I learned was that this was going to be harder than I thought. Fortunately, my day job was working in the family business—we manufacture private brand laundry and household cleaning products—so I knew something about production and quality control. But the biggest advantage the family business gave me was a network of scientists and independent testing labs. I made many Ziploc bags of chemical-free wipes in my kitchen, and day-by-day, we got better and better, until finally in May 2016 we had something that really worked.

In July 2016, I made my first production run of 500 sample packs. Everything tested out perfectly, and people loved them! So my sister designed a fun soft-pack, and in October 2016, we made 10,000 more.

It took about three years from idea to production, and that might seem like a long time. I was a new mom with a full time job, and this product had to be perfect. I really feel we’ve created something special here.

What are the most popular and/or newest products from WaterPura?

Our newest and most popular product is the original, chemical-free baby wipes in a 60-count soft-pack with a rigid lens lid. We’ll also make 10-ct travel packs for parents on the go.

What sets WaterPura apart from other companies that make baby wipes?

WaterPura baby wipes are the only American-made, chemical-free water wipes in the world! They’re soft and strong and leave a fresh, clean feel—no oils or fragrances. These wipes were created by a concerned mother; and I only want the best for every child.

What can parents expect to see from WaterPura at the New York Baby Show?

We will have WaterPura water wipes, samples, demos, videos, and lots of testimonials and feedback from happy moms. Plus, you will get to see pictures of my cute kid!

HAPP’s Diaper Bags Are Runway-Worthy, Fashionable Accessories

happ_ad_300x300 (1)A diaper bag is an essential item for new parents: it carries all the necessities for your baby. But as new mommies know, a good number of diaper bags in the marketplace look dowdy and unfashionable. HAPP is here on a mission to change that. The California based brand designs diaper bags that are functional and just as fashionable as the modern-day, chic parent. From backpacks to carryalls, HAPP will have every new mama moving through life in luxurious style.

What’s more, HAPP will be at the upcoming New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.

The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler.

We spoke with a member of the HAPP team, Melodie Ling, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.

For someone unfamiliar with HAPP’s culture, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

HAPP’s ultimate mission is to keep parents happy by innovating the best products that make their lives easier. We strive for fashion-focused, forward-thinking designs that focus on the modern parent.

Tell us about HAPP.  When did it start? How has it evolved since then?

HAPP launched in late 2015 and is based in sunny Los Angeles, California. We saw that diaper bags were either missing the function or lacking in fashion. Our products are designed with the mother’s moving life in mind and we want them to feel beautiful while being comfortable. We premiered 17 different styles with our signature denim herringbone design as the main focus. Since then, we’ve grown our collection to include even more sophisticated designs: our 2017 collection resembles high-end handbags straight off the runway.

What are the most popular and newest products from HAPP?

Backpacks have been in lately, and our Levy Backpack is by far our most popular design! Parents love the ease of a hands-free diaper bag that enables them to do anything, anywhere, anytime! Our Paige Carryall is also right up there with the Levy. It has a wide frame opening like a doctor’s bag, so it’s very easy to use. We recently came out with a new color called the Dusty Rose and the response has been amazing.

What sets HAPP apart from other diaper bag brands?

We’re changing the diaper bag game with our quilted cotton in a nylon shell material, adding structure to the bag, but virtually no weight to your haul. Our bags are about 40% lighter than what’s out on the marketplace, and we are committed to helping moms and dads alike with a do-it-all diaper bag that makes their lives just a little easier.

What can parents expect from HAPP at the New York Baby Show?

Expect to see our new colors premiering at the show! The Dusty Rose is a muted pink—a nude with a twist. You have to see this gorgeous color in person because pictures just don’t do it justice. We’re also debuting Black. It comes with gold hardware and has such a luxurious feel to it that you’ll think it’s a handbag right off the runway rather than a diaper bag.

Every parent is looking for the best way to travel with a newborn whether its a stroll in the park, grabbing some groceries, or just running errands.

Cassiope Woven, a small woman-owned company, creates wraps and ring slings that envelopes your baby in fanciful artwork.

What’s more, Cassiope Woven will be at the upcoming New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.

The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler.

We spoke with Heather Downing, the founder and owner of Cassiope Woven, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.

For someone unfamiliar with Cassiope Woven, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

“Always go with your passions. Never ask if it’s realistic or not,” said Deepak Chopra.

Babywearing was always as much about fostering a healthy relationship with my children while being hands-free when needed as it was about expressing myself with the designs and art in the wraps and carriers that I wore. I wanted to combine my love of art with my passion for babywearing. To that end, I created wraps and ring slings that are truly works of art.

Tell us about Cassiope Woven’s background. When did Cassiope Woven start and how has it evolved since then?

There really wasn’t a defining moment that started Cassiope; the idea was a dream in my heart that grew into something that I just couldn’t ignore. I began to work on designs that I wanted to wear myself. After talking with my husband about my ideas and desire to create Cassiope, I realized that the only thing stopping me was myself. I knew that if I wanted to see my dream become a reality, I had to step out on faith. So that’s what I did.

Cassiope started as a few fanciful designs that came to life on the loom. Watching that process was nothing short of exhilarating. And seeing babies wrapped up in them has been more rewarding than I could have ever expected. My fan base has also grown more quickly than I expected, and my chatter group is such a warm and fun place to hang out.

What started as simply a wrap company has grown into ring slings and even non-babywearing products. We also offer snuggly blankets, hand-made ceramic coffee mugs, and t-shirts.

What are the most popular and newest products from Cassiope Woven?

Our most popular and newest products are one in the same: ring slings. We are now offering ready-made ring slings of every new wrap released through our partner brick and mortar stores (also available online). We find that ring slings are an accessible way to venture into the babywearing world, but are best partnered with hands-on teaching not available online.

A close second are our blankets that sport our most popular pattern, Hadara.

What sets Cassiope Woven apart in the baby marketplace?

Supporting American jobs is very important to me. I enjoy working with and supporting small businesses, including several work-from-home mothers. Knowing the working conditions and fair compensation of employees aiding in product production is an integral part of Cassiope Woven.

What can parents expect from Cassiope Woven at the New York Baby Show?

We are bringing our popular ring slings in some fun new colors, but look out for a few special things as well!
