Mom targeted bazaars excite me! As a shopper I prefer to attend bazaars that have products specifically for moms. We know how limited shopping time moms get so I really want to maximize whatever bazaar visit I make. Coming up this November is one such bazaar – Babypalooza Bazaar scheduled on 30 November 2012.
The bazaar focuses on items and services for babies, toddlers and expectant moms. What makes it different from other bazaars is that it offers both preloved and brand new premium items. Brands include Vulli (Sophie the Giraffe), Carter’s, Calvin Klein, Tiny Buds, Red Tag, Gap plus more. You can see a list of the participating vendors in their website.
The bazaar is organized by 3 friends – Kat dela Torre, Mariz Ong and Celeste Goco and to ensure a variety of items, they have implemented the Vendor Protection Program. Under this program, items sold by one Babypalooza vendor will not be sold by another. This allows the buyers to have or choices as they are assured that they won’t be seeing booth after booth of the same items. Note this doesn’t mean a brand lock-out but rather specific products cannot be sold by more than 2 vendors.
Products to expect include baby clothing, gear, strollers, nursing wear, breast pumps, skin care and cleaning products plus cord banking, belly casting and pregnancy/breastfeeding massage. Organic baby food, pastries, pasta and other food items will also be available. Venue is fully airconditioned. There is free parking and no entrance fee.
Here are the bazaar details:
Date: November 30, 2012
Time: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Venue: Walter Hogan Conference Center, ISO, Ateneo de Manila University, QC campus.

Now on to the giveaway! The Babypalooza Team has generously offered a Vulli Sophie the Giraffe teething toy as a giveaway. Please note however that the winner must claim the prize at the Babypalooza bazaar. The prize cannot be mailed. Failure to claim during the bazaar will mean forfeiture of the prize.
I first heard of Sophie the Giraffe when N was more than a year old. However, at that time, I thought N was too old to be playing with it so I didn’t get one. I continued to hear great reviews about it and finally, when E came, I bought him one to try. It quickly became one of his favorite teething toys.
According to the Vulli website, Sophie is pthalates and BPA-free. It is made from soft natural rubber and painted with food-grade paint. You can visit the local distributor’s (GoodPrice Trading) website here.
The giveaway will run from 2 November 2012 until 13 November 2012. Please note: you can only claim your prize at the Babypalooza Bazaar. If you cannot claim the prize there, it will be forfeited. The winner must PERSONALLY claim her prize. Join through Rafflecopter below.
