The standard bearer for product innovation in the baby industry announced the winners of their annual awards yesterday, recognizing a diverse mix of new products with the potential to offer original, helpful and truly innovative everyday solutions to new and expectant parents.

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) announced the winners of their annual Innovation Awards at the JPMA Baby Show, taking place this year in Anaheim, CA.

This year’s Best In Show Award was mifold, whose tagline is “the Grab-and-Go Booster seat,” reflecting its radically compact structure that’s about 10-times smaller than an average booster.

The other winners include the most promising products in nine baby product -related categories from Strollers to Nursery to Play/Entertainment. There were also three Honorable Mentions given to products whose promise the judges also wanted to recognize. They were all close runners-up in their respective product categories.

“Our Innovation Award winners indicate two important trends that are emerging in our industry. First, we’re seeing outstanding innovation at an accessible price point, and second, on the opposite end of the spectrum, we’re seeing products that literally do it all for parents,” says Kelly Mariotti, Executive Director of the JPMA.

The JPMA Baby Show is a joint effort of the JPMA and Family Media. The event in Anaheim is a trade show which will also feature special consumer day (the Anaheim Baby Show) for expectant and new parents this Saturday, from 10am-4pm, at the Anaheim Convention Center, where people will be able to discovery and learn about the Innovation Award winners along with products and services from over 300 vendors.

In addition to this week’s JPMA Baby Show and the Anaheim Baby Show, the JPMA and Family Media are producing the three largest consumer show’s for new and expectant parents in the country this year: The New York Baby Show (coming up on May 20-21), the Chicago Baby Show (August 26-27), and the LA Baby Show (November 4-5).
