#12DaysOfBabyGuy: The Sequel. DAY EIGHT.
Here we go with #12DaysOfBabyGuy: The Sequel. DAY 8. The response so far has been tremendous, and I thank you all dearly. So, without further delay I give you:
I remember the first time I was introduced to UPPAbaby. I was working retail at BuyBuyBaby, and there was one stroller that everyone was going bonkers over. You know what that one is….or was. It took a little bit more explaining to customers as to what the Vista did that the other guys didn’t–and especially for a lower price point. I like to think I am friendly to most strollers (as long as they’re good), but I felt like UPPA was David up against Goliath. I took that stroller under my wing and was a huge champion of the brand. I was even written up in the Wall Street Journal for talking people “out” of more expensive strollers and into the Vista (although I disagree with that explanation—I honestly think I just help people find what makes sense for them and their lifestyle). Since that launch just a FEW years ago, UPPAbaby has become an omnipresent brand in a very saturated stroller market–and deservedly so. When I heard that UPPAbaby was launching a lightweight stroller that would still appeal to people who like the Vista, I was very excited indeed. The Cruz has a reversible seat, a one-handed recline, 4-wheel suspension, a nice-sized undercarriage basket, the same amazeballs sun canopies that are now an UPPAbaby signature, is compatible with infant car seats, has a carry-handle for easy toting, and only weighs 22 lbs. Add to this the fact that is is barely over 22 inches wide, and you’ve got the features of a much larger stroller in a compact frame. I’ve made terrific friends in the people who work at, and own, UPPAbaby. They’ve got a terrific brand message, have a philanthropic side as well (they recently donated $150,000 in Cruz strollers and accessories to families in-need), and they’re just fun people. I look forward to where this company goes in the future–and based on their Mesa Infant Car Seat that launches this Spring, they’ve got a terrific path opening up before them. Oh, you’re gonna the UPPAbaby Cruz, which retails for $459.99. For a list of retailers in your area click here. FUN FACT: all the colors are named after the kids of UPPAbaby employees 😉
FACT: Grand Central in NYC is often called “Grand Central Station” when it is, in fact, Grand Central Terminal. A station has traffic through it, and a terminal is where the line begins or ends. In keeping with this analogy, the Grand Central Bag by Skip*Hop will be the end of your diaper bag search. Skip*Hop has long been known for great diaper bags: they’re gender-friendly, modern, attach to stroller easily, and they don’t scream “I am carrying a diaper bag because I am awesome.” The Grand Central is no exception. To quote my sister: “The Grand Central is the best diaper bag I’ve ever used. And I’ve used a LOT. I gave them all away to friends. The Grand Central is large enough to hold everything I need (example is given in the above picture–and NO, that’s not what my sister carries around 😉 ), there are tons of pockets so I can stay as organized as possible (considering I have 3 kids under 3), it cleans easily, and it’s attractive. I love it. Thank you, Jamie for being an awesome brother and Guncle. You’re the best thing…ever. Better than chocolate.”***
***I may have made that last part up, but the rest is true. The Grand Central is a terrific bag, and a wonderful addition to a collection that is already Nailing It. The Skip*Hop Grand Central Diaper Bag retails for $89.99 (which is a BARGAIN for a bag like this) and is available at Magic Beans and other specialty retailers.
Yep, you’re also getting a BuggyLOVE Stroller Cleaning Kit. Made of 100% natural ingredients, the BuggyLOVE kit is a wonderful addition to any stroller to make sure you keep it looking great and smelling even better….naturally. The BuggyLOVE Organic Stroller Cleaning Kit retails for $49.99.
So, this bundle of products retails for around $600. What do you think? GO ENTER!!!
And if you win something you do not need or want, please consider donating to a charity or shelter. Thank you.
