ABC Kids Expo 2012: What’s new from Graco!


We had so many new and exciting things to see on the first day of the show that we neglected to tell you about Graco! We can’t reiterate enough how big and overwhelming this show really is but as usual, Graco did not disappoint. So, what’s Graco got going on? Well, plenty. They are in the process of converting their SnugRide infant seat line to “Click Connect”, which is the stroller connection designation (you know, how it clicks into the stroller). When they said that, we all had a V-8 moment. Click Connect means it’s a one-step snap onto the stroller – it has nothing to do with how the carrier connects to the base or the base to the vehicle.

Coming in 2013 – the SnugRide “Classic Connect” which is the original 22 lb rated SnugRide. The term “Classic Connect” means the carrier attaches to the stroller via red handles on the stroller frame that flip over to secure the carrier. Also coming next year – SnugRide Click Connect 30, SnugRide Click Connect 35 & SnugRide Click Connect 35LX. And don’t forget the SnugRide Click Connect 40 which is already available at BRU.  Is your head spinning yet?
