It’s that time of year again! The 2018 Calgary Baby and Tot Fall Show is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to take part in another weekend full of fun, fluff, and fantastic face-to-face conversations with Pumpkin’s Diaper Delivery fans old and new! The weather might be cold and dreary out there right now, but our spirits are bright and sunny as we head into this brilliant biannual event. Wait…you say you’ve never been to a Baby and Tot Show before? Well, today’s your lucky day, because that’s exactly what this blog’s all about! Read on to learn more about all the reasons why we attend this amazing event every time it rolls through Calgary – and be sure to stop by booth 111 to say hi to us on September 29 and 30!
A Chance to Connect
Without a doubt, the thing we enjoy most about Calgary’s Baby and Tot Shows (both spring and fall!) is the opportunity to catch up, chat, and connect with our beloved clients and colleagues. Too often, we’re so busy keeping up with the craziness of day-to-day life that we don’t get the chance to say much more than “Hello” and “Have a nice day!” to our clients as we head off to our next delivery and they head back inside to comfort crying babies, make lunch, and handle whatever else parenthood decides to throw at them that day.
At the Baby and Tot Show, though, things are different. We’ve got all the time in the world to chat, catch-up, and touch base with each and every customer who takes the time to come down to the BMO Centre and find our booth. We love getting the opportunity to meet up with our clients at these events, chat with the parents and little ones in our service, and generally just re-connect with the folks we see every week without having to worry about dashing off to the next delivery or cutting things short. So, swing by and spend some time at our booth – we’re looking forward to seeing you!
A Chance to Inform and Educate
Aside from getting the chance to connect with our clients, we look forward to the opportunity the Baby and Tot Show gives us twice a year to spread the word about cloth diapering to the masses. There are lots of brand-new parents and parents-to-be at these events, and while most of them have heard about some of the upsides of cloth and maybe even considered cloth diapering their kids, many of them aren’t aware of all the incredible benefits that come along with fluff. We love spending time at each and every Baby and Tot Show talking with any parents who are curious about all the health, environmental, and wallet-friendly reasons to consider fluff for their baby’s bum. Not only do we get into some great conversations, but we often find that we’re able to correct some misconceptions and get more than a few people onboard the cloth diapering bandwagon, which is always a great feeling!
A Chance to Give Back
Finally, the last (but certainly not least) reason that we love attending the Calgary Baby and Tot show is the chance it affords us to give back to the community. Every time we set up a booth at the Show, we also set up a drop-off for any clean, gently-used cloth diapers to send off to families in need through Babies in Cloth. So, if you have plans to come down to the show at the end of September, consider rounding up any extra fluff that you might have around the house and bringing it down to our booth – we’ll be sure to find a good home for it.
Of course, these are only just a few cloth-diaper related reasons to come down and experience the show. There’s also plenty of other great local vendors to check out, lots of informative seminars to take part in, and tons of entertainment for kids and adults alike. Come down to the BMO Centre this September 29 and 30 to see what all the fuss is about and be sure to visit us at Booth 111 to chat cloth, kids, and everything else. It’s going to be a great weekend – we hope to see you there!
