FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

This summer marks a full decade of CarseatBlog.com! We can hardly believe it. In some ways, it seems like not so long ago that we began writing about carseats, child passenger safety, and vehicle safety. In other ways, it feels like we’ve been doing this for eternity! 😀 Along the way we’ve shared a lot of laughs, made amazing friends, written over 1,500 blog posts and reviewed over 120 carseats and boosters!

Whether you’re new to CarseatBlog.com or have been with us since the start in 2008 – we’d like to share our celebration (and our cupcakes) with you! You are the reason we’re still here 10 years later, still blogging away, always looking for ways to improve our content and better serve our readers.

During the next 10 weeks, we’re celebrating by giving away some awesome carseats, so stay tuned! Each week will feature a new giveaway promotion and your odds of winning something are pretty darn good. Consider it a personal “thank you” from Darren, Heather, Kecia, Jennie, Alicia, Katie and all of our guest bloggers at CarseatBlog!

This week we’ve partnered with our generous sponsor, Chicco USA, to give away a fabulous Chicco Fit2 Infant & Toddler Seat in the “Tempo” fashion! We love the Fit2 for its features, extended use, and easy installation. For all these reasons, Fit2 is on our short list of Recommended Seats! You can find our complete Fit2 review here.

This promotion has ended. Thank you for participating, a winner will be announced shortly!

Halloween *GIVEAWAY* – Stroller Costumes!

FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

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!
