2015 Black Friday Deals on Carseats, Boosters, Strollers & More! Updated.

Happy Thanksgiving!  Amazon Black Friday Deals are Here. :-)

Black Friday Deals collage 2015

Here’s a little known secret – you don’t have to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to snag some awesome deals on baby gear. Retailers know people start shopping for the holidays long before Black Friday and they want to temp you NOW with some really sweet deals. Since we’re the deal experts – we know where to find the best discounts on the products that parents actually want to buy.

This list will be continuously updated each time a new deal is posted. You can help us (and your fellow shoppers) by leaving us a comment if you find a deal on a carseat, booster or popular stroller that isn’t posted yet.  We recommend that you bookmark this post as we will be updating frequently throughout the holiday season, including Black Friday, Cyber Monday and all the way until the end of the year!

What you need to know about Amazon pricing: it’s FICKLE. When a product’s price is reduced there is no way to know how long it will remain at that price. Sometimes it’s a few days, sometimes it’s a few hours. The best advice we can offer you is to ACT QUICKLY if you see a great deal on something you really need or just seriously want. Just adding something to your cart does not guarantee you that item at that price – you must complete the checkout process to seal the deal. Most items on our list offer FREE SHIPPING & FREE RETURNS to Prime members but always double check this before you put the item in your cart and checkout. Not a Prime member? There’s a 30-day FREE trial. It’s a no-brainer! Try it out and score some great deals from now through Cyber Monday. You can always cancel before the 30 days is up if you’re not sold on the many benefits of an Amazon Prime membership.

There is too much info to cover in one article so here is Part 1 of our complete 2015 ABC Expo tradeshow experience! Well… mostly complete. Some things really must stay in Vegas. 😉

Part 2 of our show coverage can be found HERE and includes updates on Graco/Baby Jogger, Hauck/iCoo, Lil Fan, Maxi-Cosi, Mifold, Mima, Nuna, Orbit, Peg Perego, Recaro & UPPAbaby!

Baby Trend

Baby Trend has a purchased the molds for the popular TrueFit convertible seats (formerly manufactured by TOMY/First Years) and will revive them as the new PROtect convertible carseat, improved with a 40 pound rear-facing weight limit.  They will also bring back the Folding Booster (also formerly by TOMY/First Years) as the Yumi Booster. See our blog with all the details here:

Britax B-Covered - ABC 2015Britax didn’t have any new seats at the show, but they have some new accessories available for the B-Safe Infant Seat: the B-Warm and B-Covered. The B-Covered ($29.99) is a UPF-rated sun screen/bug screen, available only in gray. The B-Warm ($49.99) is a heavier, fuzzier cover for cold winter months. The B-Warm is currently available in two fashions, Polar Mist (black) and Arctic Splash (with a splash of color).

There are also a couple seats going away. The G4.1 Advocate will be phased out by the end of the year. (The Clicktight Advocate will continue to be available.) Also retiring is the Parkway SG. The more popular Parkway SGL (with lower LATCH attachments) will be sticking around.

Limited Edition Frontier CT fashions – Liberty Sapphire, Meadow, and Concord are selling out fast—and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever. If you’ve been planning to purchase a Frontier ClickTight in any of these fashions, don’t wait much longer.


New KidFit Zip booster is now available at various retailers including Amazon.

New “Pirvata” fashion for KeyFit, NextFit & KidFit will be available only at specialty retailers.

The Capri fashion is available on Foonf, Fllo, and Oobr. On Foonf, it’s available in both black and white shells. Also on all fashions, enhanced padding is added throughout. Harness pads are slightly longer and softer and now attach with snaps.

Big improvement: new lockoffs close ski boot-style. The end of the top lockoff clips over the edge of the bottom lockoff, then the long handle gives extra torque as you close it. Brilliant! Want these new lockoffs for your older seat that has problem lockoffs? Give Clek a call. They’ll put you on their list to get them to you when they’re available.

Mifold Grab and Go Booster Preview – Wow!


Sneak Peek: Mifold Grab and Go Booster

mifold at ABCWe had an opportunity to meet with the inventor of mifold booster, Jon Sumroy, today at the ABC Kids Expo. There has been a lot of buzz about this innovative new product and we were excited to get our first look at it. Thankfully we can report that we were not disappointed and even though this is still in prototype stage, we are very excited and optimistic about the final product! It is available for preorder now and is expected to be released in March 2016.

IIHS has already received a pre-production mifold model and has given an unofficial Best Bet rating (it is unofficial because it wasn’t a purchased production model). Based on feedback received on our forums at, they did slightly redesign the original model for the American market to get that Best Bet rating.

Mifold Specs & Features

  • 40-120 lbs.
  • Recommended 4-12 yrs old
  • 3-position width-adjustable lap belt guides (S-M-L)
  • Mandatory shoulder belt adjuster strap (completely original design—see video below)
  • Weighs about 1.5 lbs.
  • Folded dimensions: about the size of a woman’s clutch purse

Stay tuned for more mifold updates as they become available.
