Baby Expo Chicago 2016 Recap: Meet the Vendors & More

*I was invited as media to Baby Expo Chicago, no other compensation was given all the views expressed are my honest opinion.

I attended Baby Expo Chicago 2016 at the Marriott O’Hare. Hosted by Hope McComb,  a Chicago area family business the expo provides an opportunity to check out new products  and resources. It was an excellent event. I had a chance to meet some great vendors.

The Marriott was filled with parents and kids enjoying the live DJ, bouncy house, and the various vendors that lined the ballroom. There were tons of free giveaways, samples, demonstrations,  new product introductions, and activities for the kiddos.

Hello Little Monster Backseat Organizer: Keep Your Car Clean


The Hello Little Monster  Backseat Car Organizer was designed to help parents keep their cars cleaner and clutter-free. It is the perfect organizer to keep your car clean and stock with some of the things you may need when you are on the go. It has several pockets for holding everything you may need for a car ride. I have a soon to be 2 year old and I can tell you what I bring along.

It holds an extra diapers, a change of clothes, a bottle of water, a package of baby wipes, a book, and a couple of his favorite toys. It can hold much more, these are the essential items I find I need when I am traveling with baby boy.  The organizers has 15 pockets of different sizes and two extra on the side to fit bottles or drinks,  and other important things. The things your choose to store are endless. I truly think any vehicle with kids should have one of these. This will work perfect for when back to school starts and I store snacks for my daughter for after her basketball games.
