The Baby Fair at Galleria, Edina, was a festival of expecting parents, smiling and grandparents; the energy of children too numerous to count with every style of stroller under the sun. The Galleria was hopping end-to-end with baby food-making demonstrations, a local author’s book signing, craft workshops, baby gear demonstrations, music classes, sampling from various restaurants, guest speakers informing parents-to-be about baby sign language, sleep habits, car seat safety and so much more. Several stores participated with raffles, discounts, gifts and their own special guests.
Polarn O. Pyret, Edina, was excited to host Venture Photography and Edina Family Center. Venture snapped beautiful images of visiting children and their family members throughout the day. Edina Family Center offered information on their services and provided guests with mini-classes focusing on “Playing and Interacting With Your Newborn,” perfectly in line with Polarn O. Pyret’s focus on play. The store team was busy helping guests find the perfect outfit, necessary outerwear, exchanging stories about parenthood (or grandparenthood!) and ensuring everyone knew of their wonderful promotions, gift bags and raffles, while the train set and tunnels in the store entertained the little ones.
