▬the goody bags

Every mom
will receive a goody bag. Moms with VIP tickets will receive all items in a regular gift bag plus additional items designated in orange and marked by VIP gift bag.

Mobi WallMate & TempTubUntil the introduction of heat-free LEDs, using a nightlight in the home was somewhat risky… small children and hot things don’t mix. And the tempting, playful designs contributed to the danger. Mobi has changed all that with the VIP gift bag WallMate™ Color Changing Night. It gives off no heat, has an easy to clean surface and is made of safe, durable, impact-resistant plastic. One of the best features is the photocell sensor, which automatically turns WallMate™ on as it gets dark…and off at daylight. VIP MetroMoms will receive either a WallMate or a Temp Tub. We know what you may think: what's wrong with a finger or an elbow in the water? After all, this ‘thermommy-meter’ test has been reliable since forever. Mobi's floating, colorful TempTub characters have a number of additional features to help keep little ones safe at bath time. MobiThese clever thermometers disguised as bath toys indicate ideal water temperature. Hot and cold warnings appear on the waterproof display for added safety.

Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste

VortexVortex Color Changing Toothpaste was created by a dentist who knows that most kids are only brushing their teeth for an average of 7 seconds.

SAFEHeat™ ensures that the contents of the warmer are brought to the same temperature every time as easily as possible. A simple, easy to read timer allows parents to set the desired warming time by simply turning the knob. When the time is up, the warming stops completely, eliminating the risk ofKiinde overheating, if the bottle or bag is left in the warmer for longer than intended. Someone finally got it right.
