Being that I have a background in fashion and marketing, I really loved seeing the beautiful patterns and vibrant colors that Chicco has to offer.
This Italian company sweats the details--care and effort goes into their two toned, cross woven fabrics. Easy to clean, vibrant and really beautiful, Chicco definitely sets itself apart from other strollers and accessories with its fabric. One of the things that I look for when searching for baby gear is it'??s designs and look. I don'??t want something that is pastel or gender specific, and cleaning ability is a must (think spit up, crumb stains and milk droplets all over the seats and handles).
A couple of favorites from the event:
The Liteway Stroller
By now you all know of my stroller obsession. The Liteway Stroller by Chicco was definitely a good surprise. Weighing 17 lbs, it has a built in carry handle and removable canopy. It fully reclines anf comes with a boot to cover the baby'??s feet for a cozy ride. My favorite part: The storage basket actually turns into a backpack. Birth-40lbs, SRP $129.99
Keyfit Strada Booster: For ages 4-10 years old (33-100 lbs) AAA height and weight requirements have changed, so check your state'??s new regulations! Fabric cover is removable and machine washable. '??EPS'? Energy Absorbing Foam provides impact protection and comfort. Side wings and triple side protection: head, shoulders and lumbar. SRP: $179.99
360 Rotating Hook On Chair: This was one of my favorites. You know that I live in Manhattan and have a small apartment, so this particular product is perfect for us, or for picnic table lunches out at a park (for example). The seat fully rotates, so the baby can be sitting facing wherever you are sitting. Serving tray snaps on and is dishwasher safe. Folds for easy travel and storage (comes with a carry bag). For ages 6-36 months, up to 37 lbs. SRP $69.00
I was generally impressed with Chicco's products, they seemed high quality and very well thought out. As a mom, I look for those little things that make the every day tasks that much easier, and it seems that Chicco had that in mind when researching their designs.
