It’s been a few years since any of the big baby product expos have taken place, the last one we attended was in 2019! So when it looked like the ABC Kids Expo was actually going to take place, we decided to send a large team. Of one person. I got up very early and
It’s autumn — time to head back to Cologne, Germany for one of the world’s biggest trade shows for children’s products – Kind + Jugend 2019!

A team of CSFTL admins descnded on San Antonio for the Lifesavers conference.

This author was supposed to attend but got snowed out (is that a term?) and stuck in Southern California for
It’s not every day that we have a chance to send our team to international child passenger safety conferences, so when the International Conference “Protection of Children in Cars” popped up on our radar, we were thrilled to be able to send one of our EU admins to the event!
