15th Annual Spring 2013 BabyTime Show is Here!

Spring 2013 BabyTime Show

The BabyTime Show is back with their 15th annual Spring event! If you are planning on heading down to the show this weekend, we have the deets on everything you can expect to see.


The Spring BabyTime show takes place April 26, 27 and 28th 2013 at the International Centre (Hall 5) in Mississauga. If you need driving directions, they can be found on the BabyTime Shows website here . The show runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on all three days, and has some great new features to check out and enjoy!

If you’re planning to bring a stroller, stop by the Stroller Maintenance “think Stroller garage” where they will pump tires, detail, tighten it up – fresh as new! Sunny Mummy Spa has a spa booth with massage chairs for the moms, and if you’re bringing your kiddo, they will be sure to enjoy the Toddler Time Stage – Barney’s 25th Birthday party (2 x shows daily) plus Bob the Builder and meet and greets with Thomas the train and Angelina!

A long and impressive list of expert show speakers include Dr. Mickey Lester, Ann Douglas, Brian Russell (Dad Central), and more. Check the BabyTime Shows’ website for a complete events schedule here .

In addition to amazing speakers and great new attractions, you can count on BabyTime to deliver the brands you love- this Spring’s show features over 250 exhibitors (Honda Odyssey and CRV onsite, LEGO DUPLO interactive booth, Natrel Baboo Kids Cafe, and so much more)!

Enjoy free parking while you attend the show. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for grandparents and children 12 and under are free! Re-admission is also free. Tickets can be purchased at the show (cash only) or online by following this link

Handy tips for first timers:

  • There is an ATM onsite but the line up can get long. If you plan on buying at the show, you are best to bring your money with you. Some retailers in the show will accept credit or debit transactions, but not all of them can.
  • Be sure to get a bag when you enter the show- there are usually attendants at the show entrance handing them out. You’ll need them for the TONS of freebies, samples and info you get!
  • If you don’t need your stroller, it may be best to leave it at home- the show can get very crowded at times. Navigating the aisles and visiting busy booths can be a real challenge with a stroller, especially when so many others are bringing theirs. I’m saying this from experience, as I have attended the show numerous times both with a stroller and without!
  • There is a designated area for nursing mothers with bottle warmers onsite.

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
