Every spring at Modern Mama we have the pleasure of working with some terrific brands and promoting them at our Hottest Tot event. Our fans get to write in and nominate what they feel is a “must have” for new moms. Anyone lucky enough to be able to purchase a ticket (our VIP tickets sold out in 30 sec this year) chooses a product to take home at the end of the night. It’s a fabulous event and we are lucky to have such fantastic sponsors that enable us to do it every year. We decided it was time to show off the hottest of the hot. These are the products that everyone at the event was hoping to take home with them! For a full list of all the products at the 2012 event click here.
Why would a sleep sack make our top ten list? Not only is it a 2012 cribsie award winner, it’s made of natural muslin which lets air circulate. The designs are super cute and it’s something your child will use every night!
Chew beads Bracelet and Necklace $31.99
If you have ever breast fed a baby or even held one close while wearing jewelry, you know that babies love to play with your necklaces, earrings and anything they can get their little hands on! The Chew beads from www.sprogs.ca allows mom to look stylish without worrying about breaks! Your baby can chew on the beads for comfort from teething.
Clek Olli $120
The Big-Kid Portable Seat without Numb-Bum! Olli is an award-winning belt-positioning backless booster. It says to your 6-12 year-old that it’s still cool to be safe in the car. Olli boosts your child’s height ensuring that the vehicle’s seat belt fits them just right while an additional layer of padding eliminates numb-bum syndrome. Easily transportable from vehicle to vehicle and especially handy while traveling from airport to rental car or even the taxi.
Not only is this satchel stylish, it’s also practical it has lots of room for all of your baby supplies. Diaper bags that look like high end designer purses are very hot and once baby is all grown up, you can use it as a purse or overnight bag!
Also a Cribsie 2012 winner, Petunia pickle bottom and Ergo joined forces to create an ergonomically correct carrier with style!
Weighing only 2.4 Kg pounds, this carrier is a must have for anyone who loves the outdoors and who has a little one! It comes with a fully adjustable back system and is suitable for children from 6 months to 3 years!
It’s lightweight, compact stroller featuring a one-hand, quick-fold design with an automatic chassis lock. Who doesn’t need need that? Available at West Coast Kids Edmonton.
At this great price point, the Uppa Baby G- Lux stroller only weighs 11 pounds. In fact it’s the lightest weight reclining umbrella stroller around! Great for travel, it folds up easily and has a handy over the shoulder strap. Available at West Coast Kids Edmonton.
Not only is this desk adorable, it’s ergonomically designed so that 3 to 5 year olds do not have to adjust their seats. It comes in a variety of cute colors and is available at Max and Maude in Sherwood Park.
Joovy Cocoon $499
Our number 1 is no surprise the Joovy Cocoon. Joovy makes innovative products that last. We featured 3 of Joovy’s products at the Hottest Tot event and it was no surprise that they were so high in demand. The Cocoon is a multi function stroller that easily converts into a jogger or bike trailer. It is very maneuverable, has tons of storage and the single stroller is 27 inches wide, which makes it easy to fit through doors. It folds up easily and into a compact unit.
