Halloween *GIVEAWAY* – Stroller Costumes!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

We discovered Stroller Costumes at the JPMA trade show earlier this year and we thought it was a super cute idea! Why should humans (and pets) have all the fun dressing up for Halloween? Doesn’t your stroller deserve some attention too as you meander through the neighborhood with your costumed munchkins? We think it does, so we’ve partnered with Stroller Costumes for a fun Halloween Giveaway! Winner has their choice of available costumes!

Stroller Costumes was actually designed by a dad whose kids went through the stroller-hating phase. I think many of us can relate to that experience! Lol. If your child is currently rebelling against the stroller but will gladly ride in a store shopping cart which looks like a race car or a cozy coupe – this product could make stroller time tolerable again. It’s also a fun way to distinguish your stroller from the dozens of other strollers in theme parks!

Available Stroller Costume Styles:

Current Stroller Costume styles include Fire Truck, Police Car, Princess Carriage, Red Race Car, Pink Race Car & Dump Truck.

What kind of strollers are compatible with a Stroller Costume?

Almost any single stroller with a front tray or napper bar is compatible. You need the front tray/bar because that is one of the attachment points for the costume. The other two attachment points are the lower sections of the stroller’s handle bar.

How to Enter our Stroller Costumes Giveaway:

  • Leave us a comment below telling us which costume style your child would love (comment required to be eligible to win), then click on Rafflecopter to qualify yourself.

Now for the fine print – winner must have U.S. shipping address to claim the prize. Only one prize will be awarded in winner’s choice of style. Only one entry per household/family, please. If you leave more than one comment, only the first one will count. 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 for any reason. The contest will close on Monday, October 16, 2017, and one random winner will be chosen shortly thereafter. If a winner is deemed ineligible based on shipping restrictions or other issues or does not respond to accept the prize within 2 days, a new winner will be selected. Good luck!

 

2017 Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Review

2017 Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit 4-in-1 Carseat Review

Late one night at the Graco factory, some smooth Barry White was heard playing, some carseats were hanging out, and about a year after the Extend2Fit’s original introduction, the Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit All-In-One was born. It’s about the perfect combination of what you could want in a carseat: the Graco’s super popular 4Ever 4-In-1 carseat and the Extend2Fit convertible carseat with the fabulous leg extension that eases parents’ minds about cramped rear-facing legs. The Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit is a busy seat for busy families: it rear-faces, forward-faces, becomes a highback booster, and converts to a backless booster.

Weight and Height Limits:
  • Rear-facing: 4-50 lbs. AND child’s head is 1” below adjustment handle
  • Forward-facing: 22-65 lbs., 49” or less
  • Highback booster: 40-100 lbs., 43-57”, at least 4 years old
  • Backless booster: 40-120 lbs., 43-57”, at least 4 years old
4Ever Extend2Fit Overview:
  • 50 lbs. rear-facing weight limit
  • 4 rear-facing recline positions, 2 forward-facing recline positions
  • 2 recline handles: each located on the front and the back of the seat base for convenience
  • 4-position leg extension for rear-facing comfort
  • Seat belt lockoff for forward-facing use
  • On-board harness storage for booster mode
  • Steel reinforced frame
  • InRight™ LATCH system
  • Two cup holders
  • Machine-washable cover
  • 10 yr lifespan before seat expires

Graco also offers three other versions of the Extend2Fit carseat. Here’s a quick overview of the differences:

Extend2Fit with RapidRemove: Has all the E2F features plus an easy-to-remove cover. MSRP $219.99

Extend2Fit 3-in-1: Has all the E2F features plus the capability of being used as a highback belt-positioning booster seat from 30-100 lbs. MSRP $249.99

Extend2Fit 3-in-1 with TrueShield: Has all the E2F 3-in-1 features plus TrueShield technology, an extra layer of side impact protection. MSRP $279.99

 

 

4Ever Extend2Fit Measurements

Harness height: ~7”-17 ½”
Shoulder belt guide height: 18 ½”
External widest point: 19”
Shell height with headrest: 29”
Shoulder width: 12”
Crotch strap depth: inner slot: 2” with padding, 4 ½” without padding; outer slot: 6 ½”
