Britax Advocate Car Seat Giveaway

Britax Advocate Car SeatThe thing about car seats is how nasty they are to use, right? You want your child safe but to get that car seat actually in the car and ready to go is such a huge pain you find yourself wanting to have car seats for each car you own so you don't have to move the car seat from vehicle to vehicle.

Britax sent me one of their gorgeous soft-as-velvet car seats to check out and the thing that I noticed about it (besides the claims of being their safest car seat yet and able to accommodate infants from 5 pounds rear-facing to 65 pounds front facing) is that it's the easiest car seat to install that I've seen. You do up the latches and you're good to go.

You know what this means don't you? It means they've finally got someone designing these things who has actually used them! WOO HOO! They know that easy is good--especially as with most car seats you really have to be careful to make sure you install it properly for your child to be safe. So not only is it easy but it's safe and easy.

And while I was thrilled that Britax allowed me to test drive the car seat I also was impressed at the link I saw where a two year-old boy riding in the Britax Advocate car seat survived being hit by a train. Yes, you read that right. His mother was driving the family car while he was strapped into a Roundabout model and she wasn't able to release him before the train hit the car. He survived in tact and while the train wasn't going that fast that still has to impress you just a tad. A bit?

So the good folks at Britax are offering you the same car seat pictured above, the Britax Advocate, and all you need for your shot at it is to follow the directions below.

Bambini Bliss Car Seat Cover in Leopard and PinkBut I'd also like to mention that if you're talking car seats you should check out Bambini Bliss which carries the cutest car seat covers including the one you see pictured at left here in hot, hot leopard print. It's almost too hot to be using in the summer months!

It's how you give baby that red-carpet treatment, snuggling them in soft and sweet furry bliss. Or rather Bambini Bliss.

Of course they also carry clothing and a wide variety of baby gear, jewelry, baby shower gifts and baby carriers. They even have a matching slipcover for a baby carrier (the kind where you can wear baby on your stomach) in leopard pink as well. So if you're thinking about baby items--check out the store and see what you like for yourself.

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Monday morning click here to reach the giveaway entry form then enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.

This giveaway is open to readers with a U.S. address, good luck!

Great review! Long time fan of Britax seats. Can't wait to check this one out for our newest baby!

pitaharmon said...

The hand-me-down seat I have now is so uncomfortable! It's nice to have a chance at something new!

Inkling said...

Argh! This is exactly the carseat we are wanting to get for our transition carseat, and we have a USA address....BUT...Canada won't let us use a carseat meant for Americans. We actually have to purchase the Britax in Canada with the little Canadian maple leaf on it. Oh the pangs this simple fact is causing me....this almost feels worse than losing my grandmother's engagement ring somewhere in Oklahoma. (Not because I'm not sentimental, but because the idea of paying nearly $400 positively gives me heart palpitations. Canadian prices for what I truly think is the same product - though they claim otherwise - are much higher than the American prices.)

Okay, now to convince myself that this isn't the end of the world and to contemplate where my tendency to fall into "depths of despair" came from. I blame Anne with an E. =)

Kathy said...

I'd love to win this for my 2 year old granddaughter to use. She's still using the seat that was originally her 6 year old sister's, and boy is that thing grubby and worn out! This one is so gorgeous...she'd feel like a princess on her throne! Ha!

Marketing Mama said...

Yes, Britax is a great brand! Love their car seats and could use another! How great they sent one to you to review! Yes, they are super-easy to install if you have the LATCH in your car. :)

Clarence said...

Would love to win this, we are adding another child and it would definitely be a blessing, thanks!

We could definitely use a new carseat for the baby in our other car. We had to look high and low for a seat to fit in my car with the other 2 kids' boosters. I've heard great things about Britax.

Looks perfect - I love that you can use it for newborns on up

fj62 said...

Safe and darling, what more could you ask for!

Lori said...

Britax is the easiest to use! We have an Evenflo Triumph seat for my son and a Britax Marathon for my daughter. When we have to switch the seats over for a trip in his car, I grab the Britax and leave my husband to struggle with the one that makes you think you're breaking your arm in three places.

would love to this rolls royce of car seats

Terresa said...

Britax car seats are the Rolls Royce of car seats. I never got one for any of my 4 kids because they were so darned expensive and as it was, we spent $800+ over the span of 5 yrs on 4 different car seats already. Some of my friends own 'em and swear by 'em. Lovely & highly rated for safety...an excellent combo IMO! ;)

Thank you.

missykade said...

My little guy needs a car seat so bad. I feel so guilty that I was able to have a britax for my older son but finances prevent us from being able to get one for our newest little guy. This car seat is the best of the best. Thanks for having such a great contest for everyone.
