Thanks to our generous sponsor, Safety 1st, we are giving away one Boost Air Protect in the Newsboy (ATK) fabric.  While we don’t have a review of the Boost Air yet, it is another model that scored a “Best Bet” in the new IIHS Booster testing.  Shipping is to the USA and Canada only.

We reserve the right to deem any entry as ineligible for any reason, though this would normally only be done in the case of a violation of the spirit of the rules above.  We also reserve the right to edit/update the rules if necessary.  If a winner is deemed ineligible based on shipping restrictions or other issues or does not respond to accept the prize within 30 days, a new winner will be selected.  Good luck!

Chicco KeyFit Bokoo Cover *GIVEAWAY*!


Yes, folks!  Step right up!  It’s another awesome CarseatBlog giveaway!  This time we’re pleased to announce that we’ve partnered with the lovely Adriana from Bokoo Covers to offer one lucky winner their choice of a Chicco-approved KeyFit cover.  And since the KeyFit (22 lbs model) is also sold in Canada, our friends North of the Border are eligible to enter as well! 

Shipping costs will be the sole responsibility of the winner, regardless of where you reside.  In good faith, we ask that you enter to win only if you actually have a use for a KeyFit Bokoo cover.  This cover is made specifically for the Chicco KeyFit & KeyFit 30 and will NOT fit any other model of infant carseats.  Check out our review of the Chicco KeyFit 30 here.

About Bokoo KeyFit Covers:

  • Covers fit both KeyFit and KeyFit 30 models.
  • 3-piece matching set includes covers for the head support insert and the newborn body insert.
  • Optional matching canopy cover is available (at winner’s expense).
  • Optional embroidery/personalization available (at winner’s expense).
  • Bokoo Covers are easily removed without disassembling the entire carseat or even detaching the harness straps from the splitter plate.
  • Crash tested on the Chicco KeyFit.
  • Specifically approved by Chicco for use on any of their KeyFit models.
  • Special anti-crumb design and waterproof breathable liner prevents crumbs and liquids from permeating and soiling the original cover underneath.
  • Covers available in certified organic fabrics (including organic fleece).
  • All non-organic covers are made from GreenGuard certified fabrics, which are hypoallergenic, fade-resistant and stain-resistant.
  • All Bokoo Covers have been lab-tested and approved for ECO Textile Class 1 for Babies (equivalent to the Oeko Tex 100 standards which limits over 100 potentially harmful substances and chemicals). This ensures that Bokoo Covers are easy on both your child’s skin and the environment.
  • Great for babies with sensitive skin and/or skin allergies (including eczema).
  • Great for sweaty babies or very warm climates.
  • Perfect for sprucing up a previously used KeyFit or for boy/girl fashion dilemmas! 

How to Enter:

To enter to win, click on this link to the Bokoo Covers website, decide which cover you would choose if you won and reply with a comment letting us know what your pick would be.  Only one entry per household please!  By “voting” for your cover preference you are also providing Bokoo with valuable feedback.  Check them out on facebook too!  We know they “Like” that!  There’s also a nice pic of Darren and I with Adriana at the KIM Conference on their wall.  It would be even nicer if there wasn’t a giant baby trying to smack me in the back of the head! ;)

A random winner will be selected by Adriana herself, when we see her again on Friday, 9/23, at the ABC Kids Expo in Louisville. Good luck to all who enter!!!

Congrats to our lucky winner, Sherri!
