SavorTM, maker of The Library memory keeper system, is thrilled to announce that it was awarded both the “BEST IN SHOW” and also the “BLOGGER FAVORITE” awards from the New York Baby Show, the largest consumer show for new and expectant parents. From among hundreds of brands and thousands of products, industry experts and bloggers selected the modern keepsake boxes for their “innovative” appeal.
As New York Family Magazine, which produced the May 14-16th event, noted, “Savor offers keepsake storage solutions that are practical, beautiful, and that have a ‘bespoke’ quality to them.” Savor’s memento organizational system disguises storage as museum-quality, book cloth-covered “books,” so they’re kept accessible, to make enjoying them or adding new items simple. The two current editions, Baby Edition (for ages 0-4) and the School Years Edition (for ages 4+) include separate sets of more than 50 labels to take the chore out of organizing family artifacts.
The panel of experts deciding the awards was impressive, including Maria Colaco of TTPM, Megan Colarossi of the “Meredith Vieira Show” and TODAY.com’s “Parental Guidance” with Willie Geist, Natalie Diaz of Twiniversity, Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends, Debra Flashenberg of the Prenatal Yoga Center, Tracey Frost ofCitibabes, Eddie Geller of Tinybeans, Rebecca Gruber of POPSUGAR, Rory Halperin of Mommy Nearest, Maura Hohman of Everyday Health and WhatToExpect.com, Joanne Hirkaler of Gymboree Play & Music Manhattan, Suzanne Kantra of Techlicious, Kira Kohrherr of FitBump, Jane Morales of the Mamas Network, Jessica Pallay of Well Rounded NY, Matt Schneider and Lance Somerfeld of NYC Dads Group & City Dads Group, Bobbie Thomas of the “TODAY” show, Adam Woodman of Pregnancy and Newborn magazine, and Mary Ann Zoellner of the “TODAY” show and the Sh*tty Mom series of parenting guides.
For the first time, the NY Baby Show selected a “Blogger Favorite,” which Savor also won. The blogger list included a range of bloggers from New York and New Jersey from Momtrends to The Brooklyn Mom to Apple Moms Hudson Valley. This year 75 bloggers from the pregnancy, baby, toddler, and family space attended the conference and then voted on their favorite products.
“We are honored to be selected as a favorite by both industry leaders and bloggers because we know how many products they see and review. Their stamp of approval carries a lot of weight,” states Savor co-Founder Karla the Losen. She adds, “Despite the plethora of amazing tech products on the market for kids now, there’s clearly an interest in preserving the tactile, analogue elements of childhood.”
“The New York Baby Show was a great place to get feedback from parents and parents-to-be. We talked with hundreds of consumers and bloggers, and time and again they told us they didn’t have time to fill out a baby book, but were thrilled Savor gave them a sleek and easy way to organize childhood memories,” notes Savor co-Founder Jennifer McAllister-Nevins.
