B-READY for the Stroller Fashion Show!

Fashion Week in New York City wasn't the only place where you could see new colors and fashions on the runway! Even in baby land there were Fashion Makeovers this month, and not just one but 3 new hot colors! This year’s hottest shades — bright copper, mossy green and slate gray — will be the featured fashions on BRITAX’s line of B-READY strollers. BRITAX blended fashion forecasting with customer research to identify and showcase these three new colors in 2013 on its popular B-READY stroller.

Check them out:

Britax B-READY Stroller in newest fabric color 'Moss'

Britax B-READY Stroller in newest fabric color 'Slate'

“Our fashion selection strategy involves more than just changing or mixing primary colors,” said Davis. “At BRITAX, we draw inspiration from fashion research, listen carefully to our customers, and then bring colors that appeal to a parent’s sense of style. Together, these three new colors complement our evolving, fashion-forward stroller line.” ~ Michelle Davis, Director of Fashion Design, BRITAX

According to Michelle Davis, Director of Fashion Design at BRITAX, the B-READY’s new slate (gray) color frequently appears in home interiors, as families move beyond basic neutrals in search of a stately shade to complement a range of colors. BRITAX selected moss because the green hue is trending upward in apparel and accessories. Copper is increasingly popular as a chic accent in jewelry and decorative metals. So now your stroller can actually blend in and integrate with your decor and lifestyle!

Besides being chic, the B-READY stroller features foam-filled rubber tires and four-point suspension to provide a smooth ride. Baby can comfortably and safely ride from age 6 months (or from birth, when used with an infant car seat) up to 55 pounds.

The top-selling single modular stroller supports growing families with its integrated CLICK & GO system. It easily converts into 14 configurations that can carry one or two children using any combination of the top seat, 2nd seat, bassinet and infant car seats (sold separately). Additionally, its reversible top seat accommodates four recline positions.

The BRITAX B-READY’s (MSRP: $499.99) sleek new fashions will be available online and in independent and major retailers this February.

My Take:

With a look that both mom and baby can wear straight off the runway, what's NOT to love? I'm evenly tied between the three colors to be honest, but was toying with changing my living room over and painting the walls gray so the timing on the new slate gray couldn't be more perfect!

Which is your favorite new color Butterfly? Sound off with a comment here, who knows, maybe we'll even see a giveaway of one of the new colors here soon!

BOB Stroller from Britax Holiday #Giveaway! 1 winner {Ends 12/26}

Isn't it fantastic when an awesome union produces something truly wonderful? Now I'll bet your thinking of your little blessing aren't you? But in fact I'm talking about the Union of BOB Trailers, Inc (which began in 1994 as a manufacturer of Bicycle Trailers and is now considered one of the most innovative 'sport utility'/jogging strollers) and BRITAX which manufactures a full line of premium car seats, strollers, baby carriers and accessories! It's a win/win marriage of form and function all with infant safety at the forefront of it's mind.

"Families want products that fit their lifestyles," said Karl Kahofer, CEO of BRITAX Child Safety, "and BRITAX is committed to developing products and technologies that provide safe mobility and comfort for children around the world. We've admired for some time BOB's ingenuity and commitment to customers and are convinced that its products, customer service, and business ethics make it a natural fit for BRITAX. This purchase reinforces BRITAX global leadership in child safety and mobility, and is fully in line with our international growth strategy. We have no plans to change the BOB name; in fact we are excited to expand the BOB product range globally."

BRITAX acquired BOB Trailers in 2011 and this marriage of the minds is nothing but a win/win for families! They can literally meet the lifestyle needs of pretty much any family!

"When we started this company more than fifteen years ago," he said, "we simply wanted to design and manufacture the world's best single-wheel bike trailers, and later, the world's best strollers for active, sports-minded parents. When you look at the thoughtful engineering behind the BRITAX stroller line and the revolutionary design behind its car seats, you can see why our two companies will fit well together." ~ BOB cofounder and CEO, Roger Malinowski


Will a BOB have you covered? Just say CHECK!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Jogger? Check. (The Fixed Front Wheel gives you increased stability while hiking, jogging, or navigating crazy city streets too!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Tough Terrain? Check. (The State-of-the-Art adjustable suspension system provides a smooth ride! Not to mention the high-impact polymer composite wheels with pneumatic knobby tires and tubes provide increased traction! With a simple twist of the front wheel tracking adjustment knobs you will keep rolling straight throughout your jog or hike.)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Storage? Check. (A Low Cargo Basket provides undercarriage storage and there is more storage space in the large seatback pocket and the internal seat pockets are a great place to stash snacks and toys.)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Protection Against the Elements? Check. (The Adjustable, Multi-Position Canopy has got you covered, and the large viewing window allows you to keep an eye on your baby while on the go!)

My Take:

So butterflies, no excuses, your baby doesn't mean you have to give up your fitness routine, you can keep up your power walks, jogging or hiking and have extra time with baby too! Remember babies do need a certain amount of outdoor exposure, there is that vitamin we all need that only comes from some time in the daylight! The sun is our friend!

Reducing the Challenges and Hassles of Traveling with Little Ones!

Earlier this year I had a chance to visit the US Headquarters of Britax, and one of the most memorable parts of the trip was a crash test safety demo, I had seen something similar on a news documentary program, but actually seeing it up close and personal and literally 'feeling' the impact in my gut was one of the most impactful parts of my trip. Even though it was a crash test family of 'dummies',  a collective gasp and many 'Ay Dios!' or 'Ay Bendito's' ('Oh my God! and Poor Thing! respectively) could be heard by the bloggers watching that crash test demo. I don't think any of us, myself especially will ever forget it.

It made me think of child safety in a whole new way and the factory tour on the whole also opened up my eyes on what safety feaures to look for when it comes to infant carseats as well as strollers. They really aren't all created equal, in terms of more than just style, but safety features and ease of use. (I know the cliche gets annoying sometimes, but you really do get what you pay for!)

I will admit my sister butterflies did a great deal of research for my niece and nephew butterflies based on what was available to them at the time, but their consistent complaints about the systems they used was that the systems didn't necessarily grow with the child, and that as a result travel had it hassles (Me being the youngest butterfly in the family I get the benefits of their trial and error coupled with my own research!). Spending much of my professional career traveling, I witness families fumbling with their strollers at airport TSA Security Checkpoints all the time and of course upon boarding an airplane where they have tons of folks behind them while we patiently wait for them to fold their stroller and get situated.

There has to be a better way!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Travel System Compatible Infant Car Seats BRITAX infant car seats can be used rear facing only from 4 to 30 pounds, and are travel system compatible with the BRITAX CHAPERONE and B-Series strollers. (What happens past 30 pounds? Glad you asked! BRITAX also offers Convertible Car Seats for a weight up to 70 pounds and Standing Height 49 in or less, a Combination Harness-2-Booster with a weight of 25 to 85 pounds and Standing Height from 30 to 65 in tall as well as Belt-Positioning Booster Seats with a Weight from 40 to 120 pounds and a Standing Height from 38 to 63 in tall. (So the safety does NOT end at 30 pounds my friends!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Travel System Compatible Strollers The BRITAX range has flexible and comfortable stroller solutions to suit your lifestyle. Strollers feature the CLICK and GO system that enables all BRITAX infant car seats to click into place to create convenient travel systems.

Safety You Can SEE:

Not only is there a website,, there is also a video:

My Take:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Travel System Compatible Infant Car Seats + Travel System Compatible Strollers with CLICK & GO = LESS HASSLE, LESS STRESS, FUN TRAVEL. That simple!

Butterflies, BRITAX takes your child's safety as seriously as you do, they want their systems to be safe and easy to use, take one less hassle out of travel and invest in a system that won't let you down!
