Review of KidsGO Expo

On Saturday, April 30th my family and I attended the KidsGO Expo at the Great Lakes Expo Center in Euclid. Prior to this I had never been at any events at the Great Lakes Expo Center. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised how nice the building was considering where it is located. I loved the free parking too!

The highlights of the event for my family were the Step2 Play Zone. The good folks at Step2 brought all the latest and greatest in toys and outdoor products for children with them. They had a blocked off a padded space in the middle of the event where kids could play.

Both boys loved playing on the Par 3 Mini Golf Course. I was impressed with this as it stayed together well . In our house we have issues with parts of toys not staying together correctly. This set wasn't going anywhere even with my boys walking all over it and bumping it around. I also liked the obstacles (clown, spinner and windmill).

Our youngest also had a great time on the slide...

while our oldest loved the cars.

The other highlight of the event for us was getting to visit with the mascot of the HOTTEST team in baseball, the Cleveland Indians own Slider! Our oldest LOVED loved this and was super excited to get a big hug from him.


I also liked learning about other businesses geared for kids in the greater Cleveland Community. In particular this was the first time I had heard about the Cleveland School of Rock. This group offers music lessons for children with a cool twist. They also have a final performance at the end of each session that takes place at a popular local music venue. 

The only negative for me was by the time we got there a number of the non-school related businesses had left.  Overall, for a first time event I was pleased with what I saw. I hope this event will take place next year and look forward to what is in store for 2012.
