ABC Kids Expo wrapped up its 2024 show earlier this month in Las Vegas, where the team searched the floor to discover the industry’s top trends. The six top trends are as follows:  

  1. Neutral colors are hot with a focus on blues, greens, and pinks. These colors were popular among items such as strollers, clothing, and feeding essentials. 
  2. With new material for bibs, plates, and utensils, solutions to kids flinging food, and even heat-activated, color-changing dishware, there was plenty of innovation in the feeding essentials category.
  3. Cribs, toddler beds, high chairs, and other children’s furniture were seen boasting natural finishes.
  4. Additionally, leather or fabrics with a leather look were seen across all furniture. 
  5. Traveling with kids is also getting easier. From fold-up strollers that fit in an airplane’s overhead bin to gear for a trip to the beach, it’s easier than ever to take kids wherever they need to go.
  6. Car seats are evolving as new, lighter-weight car seats, especially for infants, have emerged. They have the latest safety features that are changing how car seats performed in the past. 

“The innovation in the baby and juvenile space continues to be at an all-time high,” says Aaron Pederson, President, All Baby & Child, ABC Kids Expo.  “Companies, both big and small, are taking into account what parents and kids really need, as well as looking at safety and design.  It’s an exciting time in the industry and we can’t wait to see what comes next.”

This year, the Expo tripled its footprint from last year and featured more than 600 exhibitors at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. 

The 2025 show will be held from May 21-23 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. For additional information, visit theabcshow.com
