CHARLOTTE, Vt., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bitybean llc from Charlotte, VT, announced today that its travel baby carrier has taken home a "Best in Show" award from the NY Baby Show held on May 18-19 in New York City. This is their second major award after being selected for the prestigious "2012 Innovation Award" from the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association last October in Louisville, KY.
Over 2800 New York City area families attended the NY Baby Show, held at Pier 92 exhibition space on the west side of Manhattan. Attendees were treated to two days of shopping, shows, and educational seminars, fully focused on baby and pregnancy topics. The event explores a mix of top products and services for maternity, babies and toddlers, as well as an inspiring menu of speakers and demonstrations from highly regarded and beloved figures in the world of parenting and pregnancy.
The 2013 Best In Show winners were selected by a distinguished panel of bloggers, retailers, industry insiders, and the media. The judges noted that the show offered a lot of unique and innovative products and services for expectant and new parents, making their choice of five products for "Best In Show" a daunting task. But there was a consensus for each of the winners.
One judge for the award was quoted: "A child carrier that you can tuck easily into a diaper bag? I desperately wish that I had one of these when my children were babies. Would have been a lifesaver. This is one of those products that causes you to think – why did no-one think of that sooner?"
Bitybean continues to get raving reviews from both parents and retailers. The Bitybean child carrier is the size of a child's water bottle and can easy be tucked away when not in use. It weighs a mere eight-ounces. "We're so excited to have won the Best in Show award this year." said Doug Hartwell, Bitybean's founder and Managing Director."The juvenile product market is hungry for innovative, stylish, and space-saving products. Bitybean is filling that niche in the baby carrier segment."
