The top brand, Philips AVENT treated mothers and their babies to a one-of-a-kind interactive exhibit, Philips Avent: From Pregnancy to Playground, held last October 6, 2012 at the Shangri-La Mall.
Since I was near the venue, I, together with my cousin and her daughter, decided to drop by. Philips Avent: From Pregnancy to Playground featured a variety of activities celebrating the different stages of motherhood.
The exhibit had three areas: Baby Bump for pregnant moms, New Baby for moms with young children up to 18 months, and Growing Baby for mothers with toddlers. We were given passports, encouraging us to visit all of the booths, and we did!
First stop: Baby Bump
Perfectly capturing this interesting stage of a woman’s life, each belly cast tells a mother’s unique journey including Neva Santos, Chesca Brillantes, Chiara Datu, Isobelle Camacho, Barni Alejandro, Ayse Trifyllis, and Polly Fong. Each belly cast was accompanied by a pregnancy portrait executed by photographer Stanley Ong.
There was also an area called Mommy Mailbox where moms coud write a letter to their unborn baby. The letters will be published online in the Mommy Steps website.
Next Stop: New Baby
Last Stop: Growing Baby
The Growing Baby area gave families a lot of opportunities for fun. Moms and kids were served fruit and vegetable smoothies from the juice bar. Kids also had a chance to play.
One of the highlights of the event was the talk on childbirth and parenting on stage by experts and Philips Avent Brand Ambassador Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan.
According to her, there are five things that matter most in life; they are People, Purpose, Play, Present, and Prayer.
Aside from the parenting talk of Ms. Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan, there was also photobooth, raffles, Giant Avent products on display, cooking demo with Chef Mitchie Sison, and more!
