7th birthday cakeJuly 2015 marks 7 full years of CarseatBlog.com! Can you believe it?!? In some ways it seems like not so long ago that we began blogging about carseats, child passenger safety and vehicle safety. And in other ways it feels like we’ve been doing this forever… Lol!

Along the way we’ve shared some laughs, made some great friends, written about 1,245 blog posts and oh, yeah – reviewed over 100 carseats and boosters!

Whether you’re new to CarseatBlog.com or have been with us since the start in 2008 – we’d like to share our celebration (and our cake!) with you. You are the reason we’re still here 7 years later, still blogging away, always looking for ways to improve our content and better serve our readers.

The field of Child Passenger Safety is just starting to heat up and take off, and we have a lot of great things planned for the near future. We can’t wait to see all the awesome advances in safety, technology and innovation that the next 7 years is going to bring us. We hope you stick around and enjoy the ride with us!

Blog Team ABC 2014During the next 7 weeks we’re going to be celebrating by giving away some really great carseats so stay tuned! Each week will feature a new giveaway promotion and your odds of winning something are pretty darn good. Consider it a personal “thank you” from Darren, Heather, Kecia, Jennie, Alicia, Andrea and all of our guest bloggers at CarseatBlog!

 

To kickoff our Blogiversary Celebration we’ve partnered with our generous sponsor, Maxi-Cosi, to offer one beautiful, new Pria 85 Convertible. The winner will have their choice of available Pria 85 fashions – Devoted Black, Passionate Pink or Brilliant Navy!

This promotion is now closed. Thank you for participating – a winner will be announced shortly!

The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 is an excellent convertible seat for older babies (who weigh at least 14 lbs.) and for extended rear-facing. It offers good rear-facing leg room, great padding, Air Protect® Side Impact Technology and a cover that you can toss in the washer and dryer! In the forward-facing position, it’s a tall seat with great leg support that will last many kids until they’re old enough and mature enough to safely transition to a belt-positioning booster. Our complete review of the Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 can be found HERE. We think highly of the Pria 85 and it’s on our list of Recommended Seats!
