THE biggest family event of the year, the PE Express First Choice Kids and Baby Expo, will represent some of the finest kid’s fashion and décor ideas for children when it takes place at the Boardwalk exhibition centre from Friday, September 29 to Sunday, October 1.

Exhibitors will be coming from far and wide to showcase their products to the Eastern Cape market – from Cape Town, with Baby Republic and Balu Baby, to Plettenberg Bay, with Jelly Bean Kids and surrounding areas, like Hi Gorgeous from Addo and Heritage Gifts from Humansdorp.

Monkey Bum Clothing, The Little Closet, Blessed Day, Koosh Toosh, Fairy Folk & Friends, Heaps of Awesome and Peekaboo with their exclusive range of premature babies clothing will also be available.

PE EXpress First Choice Kids & Baby Expo is an outing for the whole family – great entertainment for the kids, and an informative break for parents to chat one-on-one with top family friendly businesses and take advantage of many expo specials,” expo director Linda Harwood said.

Exhibitors include expert businesses on how to boost children on all levels – physically, through emotional intelligence, concentration and even entrepreneurial skills via touch, workshops and educational programmes.

In addition, a number of top local schools, hospitals and health care professionals and photographers, as well as décor and furniture, crafts and toys will be showcased.

Expo fun highlights for the whole family:

. Adult visitors will receive a free family magazine: either Living & Loving, Your Family, Essentials, Food & Home or SA Garden & Home.

. First 500 kids will receive a free Milki each day.

. Kids action zones include action cricket, soccer kicking nets, bike park, pedal go-kart track and wall climbing.

. Two toddler parks, one soft play area with a mini putt-putt range and jumping castle and the other park from Windsor Forest Products.

. Free face painting stations and a creative zone with Sandart.

. Snap a selfie daily with one of our roving mascots – much loved Barney and friends, First Choice Milki mascot, Minion and Olaf.

. First Choice all day action stage, including daily puppet and reptile shows by Jeru of Animals in Wonderland.

. Loads of products to sample, giveaways and expo specials.

Parents can also look forward to a comfortable day out with family-friendly features at the expo, such as:

. Baby changing room by Nesting Place and a private breastfeeding area for moms

. Wheelchair and pram assistance

. Delicious lunch and snack options in the Expo Café

. Loads of free fun for children, so that parents can comfortably shop around.
