The Baby Expo kicks off on Friday 7th November 2008 and will run until Sunday 9th November 2008. Ticket prices are R40 per person and kids under the age of 10 get in free. Doors will be open from 9am to 6pm daily.
This year The Baby Expo Cape Town is bringing visitors a new range of hot and exciting things to do and see for the whole family - one of which is the ‘All Expenses Paid Pregnancy' Competition worth R150 000.00.
This unbelievable prize covers doctors' bills, a maternity wardrobe, nutritional supplements, pre-natal classes, furniture and linen to decorate baby's room, a supply of Pampers nappies, a camp cot, a baby monitor, a nursing kit, baby's first wardrobe, literature, an exercise program, developmental toys, stem cell storage, an educational policy, a video camera and much much more! To enter and for more information, pregnant moms (with proof of pregnancy from 12 weeks) need only visit the Pampers Preggy Lounge at The Baby Expo Cape Town.
In addition to this exciting competition, Barney™, the world's best loved dinosaur will once again be at the show, brought to you by Baby City. Barney is a well known and much loved favourite at The Baby Expo Joburg, Durban and Cape Town, and this year kids are in for a real treat - 2008 marks Barney's 20th birthday, and to celebrate Barney will be searching for his biggest fan!
- To enter ‘Barney's Biggest Fan' competition simply visit your nearest Foto First or Baby City store to obtain the entry forms, take a photograph of your child with his favourite Barney toy, clothes or décor and have your photo printed and entered at your nearest Foto First store.
Make a birthday card especially for Barney, bring it to the CTICC during The Baby Expo and one daily lucky draw winner will get to meet Barney after his show.
Entrance to the Barney show is free, but booking through Computicket is essential because Barney has many friends and seats are limited. The Baby Expo is the only expo in South Africa to be visited by Barney, so don't miss out on this exclusive show!
In line with this year's theme - Active Families, Wholesome Living - The Baby Expo has partnered with SuperSport to bring a new, fun and sporty dimension to the show. SuperSport will present an active Play Zone where families are challenged to test their football skills by kicking soccer balls into a net, while the ball is tracked by a radar gun!
Baked Simba have come on board with The Baby Expo Cape Town as the sponsor of the Baked Simba Activity Area. In this area kids can participate in fun activities such as soccer goal scoring, hula-hoop, hopscotch, face painting and mini basket ball to name but a few.
