Our second day at the ABC Kids Expo was mostly a foray into the world of rear facing only seats, with some combination seats and boosters thrown in for good measure. We also started increasing the sizes of the coffee drinks we’re consuming to combat our fatigue.
Greetings from the wild wild west, where the CSFTL Media Team has converged on the ABC Kids Expo for coverage of the latest and greatest in the car seat world. Here’s a rundown of what we saw today:
We’re on our final day here in sunny Florida! Kidz in Motion’s child passenger safety conference is a great place for CPS technicians, instructors, and safety professionals from across the industry to meet, encourage each other, and to learn about new trends or techniques.
Hello from the beautiful Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate! Several of the CSFTL team are here attending the 11th annual child passenger safety conference of Kidz In Motion. On Wednesday, we had the opportunity to attend technical workshops, both of which provided us with new tools for assisting families and caregivers.
Two of our members were lucky enough to be able travel to Chicago, Illinois this weekend to attend the 33rd Annual Lifesavers Convention. Lifesavers is an all-encompassing highway safety conference. Its attendees range from CPSTs to Highway Patrol.
Today we were lucky enough to hear from a variety of manufacturers about their latest updates and innovations.
When Cosco invited Car Seats for the Littles to their Scenera NEXT launch party, I was ecstatic! When I was chosen to go, I screamed. Literally. I called my husband and screeched, CRASH TESTS! I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than in a car seat plant that produces close to one million car seats a year.
Day three in Vegas dawned and our intrepid media team greeted the dawn with a mighty series of snores. This expo business is amazing but can really wear a girl out!
We started our day at the expo in the line ride for Starbucks, where so many ABC Kids attendees were in need of pastries and coffee that the cold case was nearly empty. Finally, coffee in hand, we were ready to meet another set of manufacturers and see the latest innovations in the car seat world.
Our day at the Expo started with a visit to the Graco booth. Graco has added some really exciting new products lately — namely the 4Ever and the Milestone. We couldn’t wait to see what they had to show us!
Our intrepid media team is headed to exciting Las Vegas for the ABC Kids Expo! During this first day of the show, we had the chance to meet with these manufacturers.
It’s still absolutely gorgeous here, although I continue to find the expression, “But it’s a DRY heat!” completely not compelling. Dry or wet, it’s still hotter than this delicate New Englander finds reasonable.
