|Seriously, this baby. If she's not the future face of |
#gracosafety, then I would really like to know why.
This past Saturday, I got to host a supra-awesome Graco event at the Babies R Us in Niles, IL. (For you Chicago cityfolk, it was actually only twenty minutes away from my house. Closer than the one downtown! Go figure.) The party was to unveil the new Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40, the only rear-facing car seat that grows with babies from birth to two years, or up to 40 pounds. (Which, in the case of my miniature children, is until they're roughly seven years old.)
|Look! It's Leah of Tin Roof, Rusted, and her gorgeous (and helpful) children!|
The shindig was pretty sweet; I hosted with Kristin of The Little Style File, and we held two different parties back to back. At each, folks learned about the new features (eight seating positions and adjustable footrests were the crowd favorites), mugged for the photo booth, played some trivia games and, at the very end of each party, one lucky person won a Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 of their very own. (A 219.99 value- not too shabby for an afternoon jaunt to the Babies R Us, no?)
And aside from the very real possibility that I was going to take off with someone else's kid (because these children were a) adorable and b) ridiculously cute), the afternoon was a raging success. The manager of the Babies R Us told us that our event with Graco was the most well-attended that he'd ever seen in the store's history. (This, after having told Kristin to not get her hopes up of having anyone come.)
|This girl was the coolest. She totally threw down at the trivia contest.|
I think this proves three things:
One, that people dig newer, brighter, shinier, (and safer!) products from a brand they already know and trust...
Two, that Kristin and I were an unparalleled combination of fun who provided the best results in the history of ever...
And three, that working an event like this gives me a serious case of the Baby Feelings.
The Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 – the first and only newborn to two-year infant car seat that actually grows with your baby from four pounds all the way up to 40 pounds. The car seat is designed for a parent on the go. The infant car seat can be easily removed from the base and used as a carrier when the infant is small, providing portability and convenience so you can easily move your infant in and out of the car without disturbing them. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently made the recommendation to keep all children in rear-facing car seats until the age of 2. Graco set out to make this product so parents can keep infants rear facing longer while still keeping them comfortable.
