{GRAND OPENING} Distroller World at the Galleria Gives Kids an Interactive Adoption Experience

We are thrilled to be partnering with Distroller World to bring you this sponsored post. Our kiddos are loving this awesome new store, and we just know that yours will too. Read more below --- and mark your calendar for their grand opening event!

My four year old daughter Charlotte is at the peak age of imaginative play. She adores role playing with her dolls, and she is intrigued by all of the different ways a family can be created. So when I heard that Distroller World, an interactive adoption center and medical clinic for children, is opening a store right here in Houston, I knew Charlotte would be all in

Visiting Distroller World in the Houston Galleria is an interactive sensory experience, full of sights, smells, and textures where children are able to adopt and care for their very own “baby” with the help of Nurse Tania. Each Neonate baby has a eye-catching look and smell, and children who adopt one go through a whole series of steps, from choosing and naming their baby, completing adoption paperwork, and seeing their new family member through a health check-up. These Neonate Babies come in different stages of development namely Espongie, Zygotie, and Nerlie, and Charlotte joyfully adopted Nerlie. The entire experience from start to finish was amazing, and it opened up such a great conversation for Charlotte and I on adoption and how different families come to be.  Here’s a brief recap of our morning there…

Step 1 :: Choose a baby. The Neonate Babies come in different sizes and textures,  with adoption fees ranging  from $19.99 – $29.99.

Step 2 :: Nurse Tania {or one of her assistants} calls for the baby, who is sent to her new mommy or daddy in a capsule that travels through a clear tube at the top of the store.

Step 4 :: The baby is weighed, measured for head circumference and weight, and has its temperature taken.

Step 5 :: The baby receives shots, but is comforted by her new mommy.

Step 6 :: The assistant swaddles the baby, places her in the incubator, and gives her to her new mommy with instructions on how to care for her at home.

Charlotte had a wonderful experience adopting her new baby, and then she was able to accessorize from a wide selection of pacifiers, clothes, diaper bags, and other products available for purchase. The assistant’s role was perfection – she explained each step of the process carefully and gave Charlotte plenty of hands-on role play as well. Charlotte took the whole process seriously; this wasn’t a trip to the toy store … this was an adoption. 

The creative genius behind Distroller World is Mexican artist and designer Amparin Serrano, who founded the company in 2004. While there are over 60 Distroller World stores in Mexico and Latin America, the Houston store will be the second to open in the United States. Along with providing a fun, creative, and interactive experience for children, I love that Distroller World strives to give back to the community by partnering with several local organizations, including the Perriwinkle Foundation and Be An Angel.

Distroller World was a sure hit with my little mommy-in-training, and I know Charlotte has hours of fun and imaginative play ahead caring for her new baby. To get in on the excitement and the opportunity for your children to adopt their very own baby, mark your calendars for Distroller World’s GRAND OPENING at the Galleria on Saturday, July 29th from 12:00 – 4:00 pm.  Check out the invite below for more information!

Elizabeth was raised in Houston and met her husband Ryan shortly after graduating from Texas A&M with a journalism degree. A few years later, Grayson {Sept 2010}, turned Elizabeth’s world upside down, not only with his sparkling blue eyes and killer smile, but with his profound disabilities and diagnosis of Mitochondrial Disease. After two years of navigating the world of special needs parenting, Elizabeth and Ryan were blessed with Charlotte {Jan 2013} and Nolan {Sept 2015}, perfectly completing their party of five. Elizabeth and her crew live in Katy, and when she can steal a few moments for herself, she can be found out for Mexican food and margaritas with girlfriends, binge-listening to podcasts and audiobooks, or trying once again {unsuccessfully} to organize her closet. In addition to her role as Managing Editor of HMB, Elizabeth writes about faith, politics and special needs parenting for publications like Scary Mommy and HuffPost.You can connect with Elizabeth on Facebook,Twitter, Instagram, or ElizabethKBaker.com
