Well, this year’s best items at the new product showcase were the wine, cheese and butlered appetizers.  That’s because no child safety seat manufacturers had anything to show.  I know there are a few new things being introduced here, but apparently not at the showcase:-(

Plus, my stroller and baby gear team blew me off (you know who you are!), so I decided just to take a few snapshots and head out to meet a friend for dinner and a show.  My buddy and I have been coming to Vegas at least every few years since around 1991.  Used to be almost every year until the kids appeared, and with the Expo moving to Louisville next year, this might be it for a while!  Blackjack, craps and sportsbook, here we come!

Anyway, here are some photos.  A few infant seat covers and protectors from BuggyShady,  Tivoli Couture and BusyIzzy.

The Valco Ion stroller and the Sidekick ride-along board for the Orbit G2:

Perhaps the coolest bathtub conversion from American Standard Safety Tubs and a mobile childproofing kit from Travel-Tot:

Stay tuned tomorrow for our first day at the show!  Heather, Kecia and I will be meeting with Britax, Combi, Cybex, Dorel, Harmony and Sunshine Kids!  I’m also taking a little break to catch the Bears game at the biggest football party in Vegas.  It is Vegas, after all!
