Big Britax Bargain Blowout Bonanza

It’s no secret that we like Britax and we like deals on Britax seats even more.  A number of their models are included on our favorites lists and our Recommended Car Seats List.  We’ve also reviewed the Frontier and the Boulevard CS.  Starting tomorrow, February 1st, Britax is holding another sales event!  If you’re in the market for a Britax seat, please check out the deals at our affiliate store Amazon.Com and at our sponsor, Kids-N-Kribs.Com.  This sale ends February 15th, so don’t wait too long!  Models will be marked down up to a 20% discount off normal prices!  I’m told the Britax Marathon will be under $230, the Boulevard under $260, the Boulevard CS under $280 and the Regent under $210!

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers: Thermos Intak and Foogo Review

A while back, Heather wrote about Thermos Funtainers.  Today I have a few quick comments about the Thermos Intak Water Bottles and the Thermos Foogo Sippy Cup.

Not much you can say about water bottles.  They hold water.  The Intak does that well, and in fun colors, too.  The Intak also has a nice, wide spout that not only is easy for drinking, but big enough to fill under a faucet.  The locking top is resistant to 3-year olds.  It goes into a dishwasher with no problems.  It has a rotating bezel if you want to keep track of how many refills you drink.  When closed, it doesn’t spill.  It has a flip up loop for carrying or to attach to a pack.  It’s also narrow enough to fit into most mesh backpack pockets.  Not much else to say- it’s a nice water bottle you can get at Target for under $10.  Just keep in mind that it’s not insulated, so it won’t keep beverages hot or cold.

The Foogo is a sippy cup.  It keeps milk and juice cold, so it never goes to waste.  It cleans up in the dishwasher, also.  Again, simple and well made.  Ideal for cold drinks, but not recommended for hot ones.  No issues with dripping as we have with some of our other sippys.  The top screws firmly into place every time.  Seems to be very durable, too.  I even let my son take this one around the house, even if it has milk or juice in it!

They are BPA free and I highly recommend them both!  For more information, please visit www.thermos.com .

Might be a bargain, might be a mistake.  They make great gifts, and if you buy by clicking our links, it’s a nice gift to Carseatblog.com, too!  Better hurry, I’m guessing supplies won’t last if it’s a real deal and if not, the mistake will be corrected quickly!

Hottest holiday gifts for the littlest CPS advocates

The onslaught of holiday catalogs has begun and already there are predictions of what the hot, in-demand gifts for kids are going to be this season.  After all, little kids don’t really understand the concept of a global financial crisis and economic indicators like retail sales and consumer confidence mean nothing to them.  Even if they’re old enough to understand that your 401K is now worth half of what it was worth a year ago – I doubt that would keep them from wanting the things they want.

But what do you get the littlest CPS geeks on your holiday shopping list?  You know, the little ones who role model best practice with their baby dolls and the older kids who know more about child passenger safety than the average pediatrician!  For these awesome kids here are the top CPS-related gifts of the 2008 holiday season:
