London Bump, Baby & Toddler Expo!

6:40 AM

London Ontario mamas, papas, and mamas/papas-to-be: I am going to tell you where you need to be the first weekend in November!

Our city is hosting an awesome event for all parents called the London Bump, Baby & Toddler Expo.

WHEN Saturday November 2nd and Sunday November 3rd, 2013. From 10am to 4pm. (P.S. If you attend on Saturday you can get in FREE on Sunday!)

WHERE The Western Fair on Dundas St., inside the Progress building. There’s tons of free parking available. (Hint: while you’re in the area stop in to THE ROOTCELLAR, one of my very favourite spots for juice, smoothies, espresso-drinks and healthy food.)

An amazing show featuring over 70 mom-to-mom tables, tons of local businesses, and access to all the latest awesome baby/toddler products. Exhibitors include Bellies2Babies, La Leche League London and the Children’s Museum. There are also prizes to be won! Did I mention you may be able to sample new stuff or buy things at special rates? Literally, from barely conceived to heading to Kindergarden, if you've got kids this weekend is for you.

It costs $7 to get in, but if you pay on Saturday you can get in FREE on Sunday. You only have to pay for those ages 12 and up, so bring your littles free of charge. The building is great for strollers. Proceeds will benefit the Children's Hospital. To get a $2 coupon for the Expo, ask one of the exhibitors – list on the website – or join the newsletter. (If you join the newsletter you can get entered for contests, get up to date information about exhibitors and get coupons that work at the Expo.)

But wait...

I am proud to be giving away TWO FREE TICKETS to the Expo. You can enter the giveaway below just by commenting and liking the My Idea of Happiness page on Facebook!

Giveaway ends October 30th. London-residents, or available to pick up prize in London- only. 

  • Bullfrog-powered. How cool is this: the entire show is run by 100% green electricity. Check out to see how they use generators to inject clean, renewable electricity onto the grid to match the amount that the event will use. It’s amazing for the environment and contributes to a healthier environment for your family.
  • SWAG bags. If you’re one of the first 150 people to show up, Saturday OR Sunday, you’ll receive a swag bag full of awesome free stuff. Worth showing up early for!
  • Diaper change stations. For me, this is the mark of a good event. There will be a station full of wipes, change pads, sanitizer, and even pails to discard dirty diapers. This is provided by the Canadian Scholarship Trust-Plan. AND a Breastfeeding Area that’s nice and quiet (and private if you need it) to sit down – thank you – and nurse your little, or big, one. It’s also stocked with things you need including nursing pillows. Thank you, Middlesex Health Unit! AND a Stroller Testing Zone. If you’re looking to buy but have only seen online reviews and would like to take one for a spin, it’s the best way to know if it’s the right one for you. (London Honda is also showcasing some of their new vehicles if you want to peek at those too. I know some moms and dads are in need of a new car to fit their growing family. Worth a look.)

  1. Wohoo! Went in the Spring and loved it :)

  2. My advice- bring a stroller or a significant other (the stroller you do not have to pay admission for or listen to it complain the entire time...) Freebies and info end up getting pretty heavy! Especially with a little one in tow!

  3. Nice to know there are so many freebies that you need to plan logistics ahead!!

  4. I was lucky enough to see this place. If you get a chance to check out food here please do so. You won't be disappointed. This is such a joy as a place for food!
