As you know Mommybites is the go-to community for quality parenting resources, support and education so when we met the BIBB Magazine team during the ABC Kids Expo…and then saw their beautiful magazine, we just had to share with you!
Built by entrepreneurs and fueled by a passion for working with baby and kids brands, the Best in Baby Biz (& Kids) Magazine (“BIBB Magazine” for short) features the “a-ha” moments of mom and dad inventors and how they went from idea to mainstream, often times solving common parenting problems.
Their mission is simple: to share the best inventions in the baby and kids business with tips, trends, and advice from real moms and parenting experts, and to build a community where modern parents can connect, have a voice, and be inspired.
Behind BIBB is Social Media 22, the baby and kids marketing and PR firm that created and stoked the magazine’s rise. SM22 has worked with hundreds of baby and kids brands over the last five years, helping each brave the waters of the competitive retail industry.
Each magazine issue is filled with articles on trending parenting topics. Many are written by doctors, therapists, teachers, moms (yes, moms are experts!), and other experts. Readers will take a tour of the busy lives of hands-on parents who run businesses from the beginning start-up phase to making it big with a million dollar brand. Plus you’ll find quizzes, opinion pieces, polls, and even fashion.
One of the best features in every issue is a catalog that showcases the best of the baby and kids industry. BIBB Magazine carefully curates top products to showcase in each issue. Products that save parents time and energy, make children more comfortable, and generally make lives easier for families. Many are downright genius. The catalog includes exclusive deals for many of its products with a cool click-to-shop feature.
Now for perhaps the best feature of all…one lucky reader can enter to win EVERY product in their catalog. (Click here to enter the current issue’s giveaway.)
Moms love this modern and unique magazine. In just one year, they’ve built a subscriber base of 20,000 moms. The magazine achieves thousands of social media shares in just a few days after releasing each issue.
This fall’s issue highlights 47 top baby and kids inventions; we chose 10 to tell you more about with a preview of the rest below:
