Bloom And Grow Product Launch x Giveaway!

As a first time mom, shopping for baby and toddler products can be quite a headache at times because there are just so many options in the market and the various brands are always putting up new products on the shelves so fast! Despite that, I still love shopping for baby and toddler products and I'm one of those that can spend 2 hours at the store when I was really only meant to spend 30 mins. I'm the kind that goes to the store to get a new water bottle, but come out with a water bottle, a towel, socks, books and toys and sometimes maybe more. Heh.

Which is why when theAsianparent and Bloom and Grow invited me to their product catalog launch I was pretty excited to see what new and cool items were going to be launched in the kids market. 

Held at the Jimmy Monkey Cafe, the entire place was filled with products showcased from brands like Nuby, Skip Hop, Trunki and many more!

The range of products were just amazing, and I loved how some of the products were multipurpose and sleek at the same time! There was something for everyone - from moms to newborns and toddlers. 

Fellow mom bloggers were around at the product launch event which made it a great opportunity to catch up with them face to face and to make new friends!

The team from Bloom and Grow very kindly gifted us a hamper full of products from some of the various brands! Check out what we got:

The Trunki PaddlePak bag is just what we need as we've been considering to send Kaitlin for swim classes, so this will come handy! Plus the Nuby snack bowls and Skip Hop insulted lunch bag are just what we need on those days when we head out. I usually pack food out for Kaitlin so these are great additions.

Out of all the products gifted to us, we've used the Frankie Rays the most thus far and Kaitlin's loving her new shades! 

Frankie Ray sunglasses come in a range of stylish design for both girls and boys aged 2-12 years old. Protecting the eyes of our young one's from the harmful effects of UV rays are especially important! Typically the ones I've come across in more stores either are really pretty but have no UV protection, or are the complete opposite - provide UV protection but aren't that pleasant looking. Thus when we received the above pair of Frankie Ray sunglasses from Bloom and Grow, I couldn't wait to show them to Kaitlin cos I knew she would love them! Kaitlin loves to wear her shades in the morning while on our way to school and when we're out on weekends so these were the perfect alternative to her previous pair which she's slowly outgrowing.

Kaitlin looks pretty cool right!

Good things must share and since it's the season of giving, here's a special giveaway for you readers! Thanks to Bloom and Grow and theAsianparent, I've got a $150 hamper to giveaway to one of you lucky readers!


The $150 hamper includes a Travel Grobag and a Ubbi 3-in-1 Potty!

The Travel Grobag by The Gro Company is a variation of the The Grobag sleep bag which provides the utmost comfort for babies and comes in a variety of lovely prints whilst meeting the relevant safety standards.

The Travel Grobag features a 2-way zip and back vent making the sleep bag suitable for travel as it can be used with a 5-point harness, enabling parents to easily move your baby from your carseat to the baby's cot or vice versa without disturbing their sleep. I wish I knew about this product when I had Kaitlin because while we didn't have a car, we did have situations where we had to move her from one place to the other and it was always very difficult to do so without her waking up. Many times, I ended up carrying her whilst she was asleep and positioning myself however I could till she woke up. If you can relate to this, or wanna avoid such situations, then join the giveaway so you can try out the product without having to pay for it!

The Ubbi 3-in-1 Potty is one of those products you have to get if you want something functional especially if you are living in a small space and if you're into sleek designs! Besides serving as a potty, it also functions as a toilet trainer and sturdy step stool. 

This portable potty comes with a built-in splashguard and removable inner bowl which makes cleaning up a breeze for adults and even toddlers if you're into teaching them about independence and cleaning up after themselves. The potty also comes with a Ubbi toilet trainer hook so that you can hang the toilet seat when you want to leave it to dry. Best of all, it's PVC, BPA and Phthalate free.

If you would like to win this awesome hamper, all you've got to do is:
