BOSTON, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Safety 1st is continuing its proud 30 year tradition of partnering with parents and guiding them through all their firsts with an innovative parenting experience. Starting today through Sunday, Safety 1st is opening its first pop up experiential store at Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston, MA.  The four day interactive tour of parenting will feature a variety of events including hands-on demonstrations, product testing and engaging programming. 

Safety 1st will also use this occasion to announce yet another initiative, the Safety 1st Charitable Giving Program. The program will focus on organizations launched by parents for their children, centered on causes close to their hearts.  Safety 1st will partner with a total of three charities throughout 2015 on this initiative.

"This pop up store is an industry 'first' for Dorel Juvenile and is in line with our strategy of getting closer to parents to constantly be in tune with their needs. Consumers will have an opportunity to engage with us on a whole new level," said Dorel Juvenile USA President and CEO, Paul Powers.  "This concept will enable families to experience how Safety 1st can take the worry out of parenting and, instead, focus on celebrating all the memorable firsts."

The Safety 1st pop up store will have a full program of activities for moms and kids.   Mothers will enjoy hands-on product demonstrations, plus areas that will give them the chance to pamper themselves with mini-spa experiences and make-up artists. Experiences for children will include, among many other activities, story hours and an interactive art project that benefits Children's Hospital in Boston.
