The first 2022 MamaMagic Baby Expo event has come to a close. The Expo’s highly-anticipated return from 7-10 April 2022 was an enormous success with visitors flocking to enjoy the new products, exclusive show specials, live entertainment, VIP goodie bags and expert parenting advice from more than 150 exhibitors at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand.
Visitors to this popular show were once again able to physically explore all the latest baby products and services safely under one roof, and the good attendance figures showed that the parenting community’s need for this type of exhibition is definitely alive and well.
And the Winner is….
The Expo is known for hosting exciting competitions which give parents an opportunity to experience products they might not otherwise have discovered. For some, like Primary School Teacher, Natasha Bouwer, from Alberton, winning a prize like the Pampers Premium Care Baby on Board’s Pregnancy Starter Kit is life-changing.
Premium Care Baby on Board’s prize valued at over R100,000.00, includes a year’s supply of Pampers nappies, Netcells Stem Cell Banking is sponsoring the winner free umbilical cord blood and cord tissue stem cell banking for 10 years to the value of R28,750.00, a R10,000 Dis-Chem Baby City voucher, products from Pigeon and Elektra, a Joie bouncer, Jean Kelly bag, PostUcare Walker, Totes Baby products as well as products from NoonooPie, Jellebebe, Nanobebe, SoPure, SebaMed and Safety 1st.
Natasha married “the most wonderful and caring man I have ever met, Corne Bouwer” on 26 April 2021, and in December 2021 found out that they are again expecting after a miscarriage earlier in the year.
“For us as first-time parents, this prize is amazing! It could not have come at a better time!’ says Natasha. “We went to MamaMagic Baby Expo with so little idea of what we need and what is important for a new baby. So, winning this prize has helped us in more ways than one. We are now even more excited to get our baby room sorted and obviously we can’t wait for our little lady to come in August so she can get to use all the amazing products!”
“When I opened the winning box, I had a whole ocean of emotions rushing over me!! I was extremely shocked, and then extremely happy, I wanted to cry and shout and laugh at the same time. We just walked past Pampers Premium Stall and decided to enter and to be completely honest, with my marshmallow brain I had forgotten I had even entered,” she says.
Always something new to see and learn
Natasha and Corne have been to MamaMagic many times, even before they were married, to support family and friends. “We will definitely go again and again,” says Natasha. “There is always something new to see and something new to learn. Every single person is willing to help with any question or advice, and this time when we went as parents-to-be, we really needed that!
