Parenthood/Baby Fair at Midvalley

It has been around 5 years since the last time I went to a baby/parenting fair. This year, aside from exhibitors, they organized more games for the babies and toddler up to age 4.

A few games that we participate.

1) Baby crawling competition

“Look at all lame babies. My Baby Princess sure win wan.”

One minute later, “DISQUALIFIED!!! This is crawling competition la. Not running!”

“Aiks, wrong match? Baby Princess supposed to be in the running competition!”

2) Toddler Running Competition

Run Forest… I mean Baby. RUN!!! The first few seconds, baby was leading but she was distracted by all the cheering mothers strangers. She stop and look at them wondering what are they so excited about. Darn!


3) Leapfrog Telematch

Looks easy tho. The rules: While you carry your child, they have to pick up a balloon from any 4 boxes at the corner and put them in the box at the centre of the stage. Adult is not allow to help the child with the balloons. They are given 1 minute for the task. Team with the most balloons in the box win.

My personal opinion on this match. The organizer has a brain as small as a frog. There is no age category for this match. Children age 1 to 4 is competing with each other. Just imagine this, you ask a 1 year old baby to pick up a balloon. Can she do it? The answer is NO! And since my son is 4y/o we pakat with him liao. He has been sniggering while watching all the babiessssssss. Some babies refused to drop the balloon in the box hence the adult have to shake them vigorously.

And guess what?

The most expensive ever prizes giving out during the fair!!! Check out Leapfrog if you want to know more about their educational toys. The match looks easy but it appear as not easy tho. I tried them at home with my son and my arm almost broken! And exhausted!

Ever wonder why are we getting a computer suits infant & toddler age 0-36 months whereby Prince now is 4 y/o. So I get the unit trade in for the Preschool (age 3-6years) unit with the condition of buying 2 books costing RM64 (US$17.30) each from them. Wtf, that cost me an arm and leg for 2 books!!! RM128 can feed the whole family for 2 weeks!!! So with all the hoo-haa and complain queen and her SISTA in action, we bought only one book and walk away with the Preschool unit while our back is full with holes right now -_-. At least I tried.

At the mean time, next to the Parenting/baby fair, the wedding fair is also ongoing next door. Again, I drag hubby to participate in their “couples” games. No pic for this. But we win lots of expensive goodies. The most expensive is grand prize sponsored by S2 Slimming Centre – some cosmetic thing with the price tag still intact; RM300!

What is the most important things a wedding couple need on their first night?

So colourful and it was on promotion. Buy one free one!!!

Princess: Mummy, what is this?

Queen: err… ohh…. balloons… err….. PERFUME!!! yeah, PERFUME!!! See all those fragrants? 😳

The best part being there is you get to bring home sample baby foods or disposable diapers. They are in every nooks and corners. Just hang around their promoters, there will always be someone different to approach you with their newly released disposable diapers. Every participation in talks will be entitled to milk powders too and if you answer their question correctly, you will walk away with more baby cereal!!! Everywhere is milk powder, cereal, rusk, cereal, rusk, diapers, biscuits… bla bla bla….

What did i warned you? Can open a sundry shop liao.

    Lots of competition. Looks fun.

    But I think it is not a good idea to put the baby fair next to the wedding fair. Trying to scare the couples before they tie the knot? keke
