Naturally Kids® is a showcase of juvenile products manufacturers that focuses on producing environmentally friendly products which are healthy for families and young children. In addition, they demonstrate a responsibility to our planet and its natural resources. This juried section of the show represents a comprehensive collection of manufacturers within numerous product categories. To exhibit in this area, each company must complete and submit an application to be juried by an independent selection committee consisting of three manufacturers, three independent retailers, a member of the ABC Kids Expo Staff and a member of our Media. Manufacturers and their products are reviewed annually in order to maintain compliance with Naturally Kid's® selection criteria. Prior participation does not guarantee future acceptance.
A majority (90%) of the company’s product line must be from a sustainable natural and/or organic raw material(s) and compound(s). With plastics, they must be a non-leaching/non-toxic “safe plastic”.
