Think the number of products is confusing now? Just wait a few months when many of the products that made their debut at the ABC Kids Expo last weekend hit store shelves. While we had an exclusive sneak peek at the most buzzed-about double-stroller launch at the show, there were plenty of other strollers, car seats, toys, and products introduced that hope to steal the hearts (and dollars) of moms and dads everywhere. Take a look at some of the products to come, and tell us which you are most excited to see in person!
Phil & Ted's MeToo high chair is a favorite in the LilSugar office. It's won our Editor's Choice award because we love its collapsible, space saving features. I was both excited and skeptical when the Phil & Ted's team told us they were introducing a new attachable high chair. What could they improve upon?
It turns out, a lot. The Phil & Ted's Lobster ($80) is a step up from the MeToo. With a wider and deeper seat, thicker aluminum supports, extra-padding throughout, and a removable plastic tray, lil ones no longer have to eat off dirty restaurant tables when the seat is used out of the house. But did it measure up to the original? The company sent me one to test with my 15-month-old, and here's what I thought.
Who is this product designed for? According to Phil & Ted's, the seat holds tots up to 37 lbs, approximately 3-years-old. Weighing about 4 lbs, it is designed as a travel high chair that can be stored in a stroller's under carriage basket.

Every year there's an avalanche of new baby products that promise to be the best on the market. Sometimes they are, but often times they don't live up to the hype. Among all of the products we test, there are those worthy of winning the LilSugar Editors' Picks of the Year. Here are the 2010 winners!
The folding lightweight chair takes up a little space at home or on the go. The nylon fabric is easy to clean and the durable aluminum frame and three point seat belt keep your lil one secure. Available in black, navy and red, it accommodates sitting tots up to age three.
Have you ever gone to a restaurant and been surprised to find out that they don't have highchairs? I have, too many times.
I started carrying my Phil and Ted's Me Too Chair ($50) with me everywhere. All I have to do is slip it onto a sturdy table and tighten the screws so it's securely attached. The lightweight, small chair fits right in the basket of my stroller so if I'm running out for lunch with friends, I can always guarantee that my lil one has a place to sit (other than my lap).
