The ABC Kids Expo

CarseatBlog is going to Vegas again this year!  In just a couple weeks, we will be reporting on the latest and greatest from all the child safety seat manufacturers.  We’ll only be there for a couple days, but we’ll try to get the scoop on other cool safety and kids’ products, too.  We already have a appointments with most of the carseat manufacturers and we will be doing a “live” blog or two from exhibits and press conferences, too.

If you are a retailer or manufacturer and would like to meet with us, please send me an email to cpsdarren “at” carseatblog “dot” com.  Or use our contact form.  We’d love to discuss samples for product reviews, sponsorships, giveaway promotions, news releases and just about any other type of business we might have in common!  We will be at the show on Sunday and Monday this year, but might also be able to arrange other times if necessary.

Consumer Reports & Orbit Baby Infant Carseat Crash Test: Cause for Concern or Another CR Blunder?

Orbit Baby Infant CarseatRecently Consumer Reports (CR) has claimed that they’ve identified a possible safety risk in models of the Orbit Baby infant carseat.  Here at CarseatBlog.com we always take news like this very seriously even if we’ve been generally skeptical about previous CR findings and ratings.  CR labeled the Orbit Carseat a “Don’t Buy: Safety Risk” after the infant carrier supposedly detached from its base in two of six CR-commissioned crash tests preformed at an outside laboratory.  So, should we sound the alarm?
