Check Out the Safety 1st Pop-Up Shop in Boston, May 14-17!

**This post is sponsored by Safety 1st, but as always, all opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**


Today I am very excited to tell you all about the ever first Safety 1st pop-up shop, right here in Boston! The event is coming next week, May 14-17 and will be held at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, next to the Make Way for Ducklings store! You will be able to touch, feel and try out all of the latest and greatest baby products including the Step and Go Travel System, the easiest stroller you will ever open!

The event will include art projects for the kids, storytime with local celebs and radio personalities and even a time slated to “Step up your Day” with makeup and hair tips by local makeup artists. It’s definitely not going to be your average shopping experience and it sounds like it would be a fun thing to do with your family next weekend.

The shop opens Thursday May 14th at 10 a.m. with family friendly activities throughout the week. There will be free stroller fitness classes with Pilates instructor and new mom Jennifer Phelan (Friday and Saturday); Afternoon story hour with Mix 104.1’s morning DJ Kennedy and children’s book author and illustrator, Jef Czekaj; “Step Up Your Day or Date Night” with free make-up and hair styling.

Saturday and Sunday the pop up store will receive an exclusive visit from Step and Go Social Media Vending Machine. The machine is stocked full of prizes for the on-the-go parent! You could win anything from EOS lip balm, to Babies R Us gift cards, or even an iPad Mini. You never know what the machine will spit out, but everyone leaves with something. #StepAndGoParent

If you have little ones at home, or are expecting one in the near future, this is the event for you.

    Wow! That is something to be excited about and what a great store that sounds like. I love the stroller. My aunts and cousins went together and bought me a stroller when my first baby arrived and it was a God Send. The easier to open and close the better.
