As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
One of the biggest banes of new parents are the series of complicated and uncomfortable high chairs that babies and toddlers sit in to eat or be changed. Keekaroo has developed a series of new high chairs and boosters seats that are comfortable, easy to clean and safe.
We spoke with Matt Peglow, VP of Sales and Marketing for Keekaroo, to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with Keekaroo, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Keekaroo Café Boosters, Infant Inserts, Comfort Cushions and Peanut Changers are made to last a lifetime. Our cushions are resistant to tears, peeling and punctures. The activities of everyday life are no match for the strength and durability of Keekaroo cushions! This exclusive manufacturing process adds strength without using harsh chemicals or plastics. Made of non-toxic and latex-free material, our cushions have been tested in hospitals and institutions. Impermeable to fluids, Keekaroo cushions also offer anti-microbial protection. Keekaroo cushions are durable, strong, and safe for your child and your home.
What is the background of Keekaroo? When was it started and how has it evolved since?
Our story begins in 1967, when our founder Tim Bergeron was a student developing a new type of therapeutic equipment for children. He found this research both exciting and close to home. His daughter was born with Down syndrome and he wanted more than anything to help her live a comfortable life. From his research, he discovered many children in the juvenile market could benefit from these products as well.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Keekaroo?
The Keekaroo Peanut Changers is one of the hottest registry items on the market today according to numerous sources but we also are proud of our Height Right High Chair with Infant Insert because of its therapeutic benefits.
What sets Keekaroo apart from other highchair companies in the market?
Not only our proprietary cushion material with its easy clean but also the inherent therapeutic benefits of our high chair.
What can parents expect to see from Keekaroo at the LA Baby Show?
Our full product line and the newly released Grey.
