Mama Magic Baby Expo

Mamas, papas and babas! Get ready for the largest parenting and baby exhibition this side of the equator


They say it takes a village to raise a child, and at the annual Mama Magic Baby Expo from Friday, 31 October to Sunday, 2 November 2014 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) an entire community of exhibitors and experts will be on hand to help new and eagerly expecting parents find everything they need to keep their little ones healthy and happy.  

Billed as the undisputed leader in baby, toddler and parenting exhibitions, the extravaganza offers more than 2000 brands of goods and services, the latest most innovative products and access to professionals with tips and information on a variety of topics. Not to mention, parents can rest easy knowing that it will be a hassle free outing, with plenty of breastfeeding and bottle warming stations, nappy changing areas (with FREE nappies and wipes from Pampers!). This leading baby-centric expo makes sure that you and your baba both have a comfortable experience, with a Baby City Pram Park available on site.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Mama Magic expo without the appearance of the popular purple dinosaur Barney, and, as usual, everyone’s favourite imaginary T-rex will be singing and dancing his way through valuable lessons for the tiny tots; show times are at 10:30am, 1pm and 3:30pm daily, and parents should book in advance as the performances fill up quickly. Parents can state which performance they would like to attend when purchasing tickets. Plus, with a dedicated play area and a variety of food stalls available, there won’t be any cranky kiddies to contend with. Parents, do note that prams won’t be allowed during Barney’s performances.

Competitions at the 2014 Mama Magic Baby Expo

Parents-to-be must make sure they visit the Preggy Zone and pick up an entry form for the Baby to Be competition, which gives expecting dads and mums an opportunity to win a grand pregnancy starter pack valued at R150 000. And for those who already have their little bundles of joy, there is the Pic & Win competition, which gives folks the chance to instantly pick up one of the amazing prizes on offer.

Tickets for the 2014 Mama Magic Baby Expo

Tickets for the expo are available via Computicket.com, at Computicket outlets and at the door for R50p/p, R40p/p for pensioners and free for children under the age of 10 (limited to two kids per adult). Tickets to the expo includes free access into one of the Barney shows, so remember to tell the Computicket assistant which show you’d like to attend when booking, as entrance and stage show tickets are separate.         

The expo runs from 9am to 6pm daily.
