CarseatBlog Readers Deserve a Mother’s Day Giveaway! (AKA – say something nice about yourself and enter to win a Graco TurboBooster!)

Graco Turbo - SpitfireHere at CarseatBlog we know our demographic and they’re mostly Moms, Moms-to-be, Nannies & Child Care Providers and the occasional Mr. Mom. We’re cool with that because we’re Moms (and Mr. Moms) too! We know where you’ve been and where you’re going. And we also know that EVERYONE can use a Highback Graco TurboBooster. Even if your own kids are too young or too little or waaaaay too immature to ride in a booster – we trust that you can find a good home, or a good use, for a TurboBooster!

So, in celebration of Mother’s Day, we’re giving away a Graco Turbo in the “Spitfire” fashion. All you need to do to enter is to comment below and say something nice about yourself! Yup, that’s it. You don’t need to be someone’s mother and your comment doesn’t have to be mom-related (although it can be if you want it to). Hopefully that won’t be too hard or require too much thought. Lol!

Contest will close at 10 PM (Eastern time) on Mother’s Day, 5/12, and a winner will be announced shortly thereafter. Winner must have a valid US shipping address. Since this is not a sponsored giveaway – everyone is eligible to enter to win but only one entry per household/family, please. If you leave more than one comment, only the first one will count.

Good luck!

Diono Monterey Highback Booster *Giveaway* – Week 11 of CarseatBlog’s Extended Holiday Giveaway Bonanza!

For week 11 of our Extended Holiday Giveaway Bonanza, we’ve partnered with our generous friends at Diono to offer a brand new Monterey Highback Booster model with updated shoulder belt guides!  This popular booster is better than ever thanks to a new integrated shoulder belt guide design which  improves overall compatibility in various vehicles. The Monterey is a dual mode (highback or backless) booster rated from 30-120 lbs. It has energy-absorbing EPS foam, flexible lower LATCH attachments, height-adjustable head wings and width-adjustable torso wings. It has a Best Bet rating from the IIHS in highback mode and it tends to fit bigger, taller kids very well so it’s a great option for keeping your older kids safely in a booster until they can pass the 5-Step Test in your vehicle. The new Monterey is on our list of recommended seats and we hope to have a review of this latest model in the near future. Winner will have their choice of available Monterey fashions!
