Jared had heard good reviews about this fair previously and we decided to head down last night after work to Singapore Expo to try out different brands of strollers as Julien has kinda outgrown his Combi Miracle Turn as well as get into the shopping mode since its Great Singapore Sale time!
We were not disappointed as practically every major baby brand was represented at the fair. Jared was pretty impressed by the variety and thinks that new parents will find it useful to pop by and buy all that they need under one roof. The more obscure but popular brands on online forums that we saw at the fair include
1) BlueEgg milk bags (very cheap milkbags!)
2) GOON and Nepia diapers (some Nepia diapers at half price!)
The usual suspects were there….. Philips Avent, Pigeon, Pampers, Huggies, Cordlife, PUKU, Medela, Johnsons & Johnsons, Heinz foods, Friso, Munchkins, insurers like NTUC Income & Prudential & clothing stalls hawking every form of kids clothing possible, from swimwear to pyjamas to cloth diapers.
Some of the better deals we saw…. Pardon the quality as they were taken off Jared’s Blackberry.
Palmers stretchmark lotion for preggies going for under SGD 20
Huge Pampers Booth –> Buy SGD 250 worth of pampers products and get 1 year of Motherhood magazine free! Jared noticed that the cheaper Pampers Active series was not sold here, only the premium series Pampers Cruisers sold here. SMART tactic employed by Pampers! Ditto for Huggies…..
Pricelist of Pampers products
Browsing for pyjamas for Julien……
Eu Yan Seng tonics. Seemingly good prices for Bird’s Best…..
The ever popular Philips Avent had a large booth at the fair too.
The twin electronic pump going for a steal at SGD 550, well under its SGD 800++ usual retail price
Steriliser package for new parents. Comes with lotsa freebies.
2 packs of Huggies wipes going for SGD 5.00
Huggies diaper promotions – comes with freebies like DVDs etc
Prices of Pigeon products look similar to those during promotion at supermarkets.
We were glad to have come on a weekday night because we don’t fancy the squeeze on weekends and the costly parking fees at Singapore Expo…. not forgetting there was a John Little sale going on next door…… We basically hauled away diapers, milk powder and baby clothing from the Motherhood fair. All in all, a good and comprehensive fair!
Well as for the stroller….. we are kinda torn between a Peg Perego P3, a Maclaren Quest and a Maclaren Techno XT…. Anyone with these strollers can give us some reviews?
