5 Things We Love: Oh Baby! Expo

  • 2017 SEPTEMBER 22 EDT - HSA PHOTO BY BRUCE ASATO Ruby Genegabus, 2, gets a ride in keiki electric powered Mercedes Benz AMG car at Kakaako Waterfront Park, Sunday, September 24, 2017.

    Oahu artist Barbara KaMille uses watercolors to create mystical backdrops for her photos, transforming moms into beautiful mermaids and dads into their Hawaiian aumakua, while little ones appear to ride atop sea turtles and dolphins. The finished creations are printed on canvas for artful display.


    Mom and Dad might not be able to afford a Lamborghini Aventador, Maserati GranCabrio or Jaguar F-Type, but keiki will be able to get behind the wheel of pint-sized versions of these luxury cars at the Baby & Toddler Speedway. For $10, kids can ride for about five minutes on the indoor track.


    Porsche Pu‘ulei-Strom is a self-taught designer who draws upon a lifetime spent in and around the ocean to create swimwear that’s comfortable and flattering. Along with a collection of adult-sized bikinis, her Tuahine Swimwear line includes matching outfits for moms and daughters to rock at the beach.


    Everybody loves a little competition, and one of the highlights of the annual Oh Baby! expo is the Baby Crawling Contest. Families with toddlers not yet able to walk are invited to enter, with the top three finishers receiving prizes from sponsors Banz and Diamond Bakery.


    Keiki Climbers is debuting a lineup of soft play rentals designed for kids 6 months to 4 years old. Available for rent are block sets, ride-on hoppers, tunnel climbers, toddler-sized ball pools, and foam play islands and arch climbers.

Dad and staff writer Jason Genegabus has compiled a shortlist of stuff to check out at the 14th annual Oh Baby! Family, Toy & Game and Party Expo on Oct. 7 and 8 at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. Read more
