JPMA is the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, JPMA is a non-profit association representing approximately 250 manufacturers who make 95 percent of the prenatal to preschool products in the U.S. market. Member companies are located around the world and manufacturer products in the following categories: 1. Mobility, 2. Health & Safety, 3. feeding , 4. Sleeping & Furniture, 5. Vehicle Transportation and 6. Soft Goods. To say it was amazing is an understatement, the Anaheim Convention Center was turned into every moms dream to discover new and upcoming products. With out further ado…..

mifold is mighty small and mighty strong. it’s the most advanced, compact and portable booster seat in the world. mifold is more than ten times smaller than a regular booster and it’s just as safe. They call it the 'Grab-and-Go’ Booster seat. mifold adjusts the adult-sized seat belt to securely fit a child. Two red lap belt guides hold the lap belt accurately on the hip bones. The shoulder strap and red clip aligns the chest strap with the child's shoulder. Give a mifold to each grandparent, have one packed away in your bag and keep one at your kiddos school in case of emergencies.

Baby Care by e-cloth Toy and Nursery Cloth. ANY hard surfaces in your home (including greasy surfaces) can be cleaned effectively with just the General Purpose Cloth, the Glass & Polishing Cloth, and the Mop. They’ve produced the General Purpose Cloth in a number of colours to help you reserve a different colour for cleaning different areas. The General Purpose Cloth cleans thick grease and dirt and can tackle the heaviest cleaning jobs with just water. As it has thicker fibers, it is not as good as the Glass & Polishing Cloths at leaving a totally streak-free finish and it is best used in combination with it. The Glass & Polishing Cloth cleans light grease and dirt with just water and leaves a streak-free finish when it is used dry on a damp surface. It’s brilliant on glass and shiny surfaces – windows, mirrors, taps, toasters, and stainless steel. Other specialist cloths have been developed to do an even more effective job on specific surfaces, they’ve thought of everything.

Its mission is to add beauty to the everyday moments of parents' lives by elevating the design of essential items.The company was founded in 2006 by Catherine Choi around a diaper bag concept, as she searched in vain for something that met her needs as a new mother. In 2010, the company launched its first collection of lunch boxes and cooler bags, which was expanded to include backpacks the following year. As the collection has grown, SoYoung has maintained a singular focus on creating beautifully designed products in natural fabrics that present a refined alternative to licensed cartoon characters and floral prints.

Vitasome was founded with the goal of helping people live healthier with their high-quality nutritional supplements. Vitasome vitamins delivery including the absorption, digestive degradation, odor and waste problems common to most vitamins. In partnership with renowned doctors and scientists, Vitasome has developed a cutting-edge method of encapsulating nutrients within protective spheres called liposomes. These microscopic liposomes are lined with phospholipids — the same molecules that make up our own cell membranes—that protect the nutritional value and prevent degradation of the liposome. This allows for a dramatic increase in vitamin absorption throughout digestion until it makes its way to the small intestine and into the bloodstream. That means the liposome payload – your vitamins – maintains potency and maximizes bioavailability for delivery with the ultimate nutritional impact. Vitasome is one of the only nutritional supplements companies to use both natural and PEGylated liposomes in order to ensure nutrients adhere to the molecules and replicate with your cells as they that feed your internal systems.
