Make a Difference for the Children in Haiti & Win Baby Gear

January 16, 2010

As some of you may remember I gaveaway a Kolcraft Contours Three Wheel stroller from Kolcraft a bit ago on my blog.  I see Kolcraft giveaways all over the place all the time and now it is time for us to give back to Kolcraft.

I was going to sit down and write a big long post but the rep with Kolcraft that I work with, who is amazing BTW watch for more amazing products from them coming soon to Jabbering Jessi, sent me an email with the perfect words so I have decided just to post that.

I wanted to let you know about a silent auction Kolcraft is hosting on our Facebook page to help children in Haiti. We are partnering with the charity KIDS who has a relief fund for Haitian children who are affected by the earthquake. We couldn’t just sit & watch all these images of devastation on TV & not do something so we rolled up our corporate sleeves & decided to do a silent auction. The silent auction features products from our Contours line & all proceeds will go to the KIDS relief fund. It runs just like a silent auction but instead of writing the bid amounts on paper, people post the bid as a comment under our Facebook wall post of the item.

I went and checked out the silent auction and they are doing some pretty great things.  There is the Kolcraft Three Wheel Stroller, there is the Contours Options Tandem stroller, 2 stage infant/toddler mattressContours Classique Bassinet.  The auction is going on all weekend and the min bid has been set and it looked to me like you had to increase by only $1.00.  What a great way to get a new product for your little one all while helping the less fortunate in Haiti.

You can click on any of the items above to be taken directly to that items page and you leave a comment with your bid or you can go HERE to go to the main Kolcraft facebook profile page.

Kolcraft Contours Options Stroller Review & Giveaway ENDED

November 13, 2009

Contours® Options® 3 Wheeler is all about attracting attention. Its reversible seat with suspension always gives baby a perfect view and comfortable ride!

We received the Kolcraft Contours Options 3 Wheeler stroller for review and wow, I have never had a stroller that I liked as much as I like this one with my other kids and wish I would have.  It comes with a carseat adapter as well it comes with a toddler seat so it is very usable from birth up and the only stroller you will ever need.  The unique floating seat has been designed with suspension to give baby a comfortable ride.  It has an 8″ single front wheel and 12″ never flat rear wheels.

The stroller folds super easy by simply pulling up on the triggers on the side of the stroller, and then when folded the free-stand allows the stroller to stand up on its own.

The Kolcraft Contours 3 Wheeler stroller has a removable parent tray with two spots for drinks and an opening in between to place your keys, cellphone, pacifiers or anything else you need close at hand.  The front bar on the childs seat removes quickly for fast and easy access to your kids which is most important to me when my little ones are sleeping.

The seat comes with an infant headrest to protect your newborns head and has a large canopy that sadjusts in all directions to block the sun.  There is  a large storage basket underneath the stroller which as any parent knows is important to store coats, blankets, and any other gear you may need to carry around with you.  The stroller has a height adjustable 5 point harness for safety and even has padded belt covers for comfort, I hate the belt rubbing against my little ones neck and this prevents that.  Fabric is constructed of a wind resistant and easy wipe high density nylon blend. Its brushed treatment adds softness while still being durable.
The carseat adapter is very convienent and fits a wide variety of carseats by simply placing them on to the adapter and then using the nylon buckles that are stored in very convinent little bags on the sides of the stroller for when not in use.  I love being able to take Holdens carseat right out of the van and put him onto the stroller rather then taking him in and out and perhaps waking him or making him cold or wet.
When we are going to be out for longer periods or when we go for walks I prefer to put Holden in the actual stroller itself and of course we use it with Maddisyn as a normal stroller as well since she is too old for the infant carseat.  What I love the most about the toddler seat part of this is that i can turn it so that Holden is facing out and can see stuff but when I know he is getting tired I can turn him around and he faces me so that he not overstimulated and will fall asleep looking at me knowing I am right there with him.
If i was asked to give this stroller a rating I would give it a 9/10, why only a 9 you ask, because I wish it came with a childs cupholder/tray as well.   Other then that it is an amazing stroller and does all I could ask for and more.  For those with more then one child there is also a Contours Options Tandem stroller which just so happens to be up for giveaway on my friend Dee’s blog Two Of A Kind Working On A Full House.  You can go HERE to enter the giveaway for the Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem Double Stroller, it ends on 11/25 and is open to US only.
