Family Road Trip Memories: Win a Car Seat from Toyota and #BuckleUpForLife

Updated: This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to Cynthia Painter for winning her choice of Evenflo brand car seat!

Some of my fondest memories with my girls are made during family road trips, whether it involves playing silly car games, singing at the tops of our lungs, or making a pit stop for lunch. When they were toddlers I always knew a good time had been had by the departure to zonk out time ratio when we were traveling. If they were good and worn out they’d snooze the entire way home. Actually even today at ages 9 and 12 that fun ratio still applies. It doesn’t matter if a car ride is 10 minutes, or 10 hours, we can always bond with our kids during drive time.

 Buckle Up For Life Twitter Party

My older daughter Miss C age 2 (left) on vacation in Navarre Beach, Florida, and at age 3 (right) on vacation in Chattanooga…love the Chattanooga Choo Choo hat and her little pink soft doll is packed away with some special items from years ago.

To celebrate these precious moments I’m honored to join Toyota, Traveling Mom, and She Buys Cars this week for two educational and fun social media events. A car seat is one of the most important initial purchases you’ll make for your child and they’ll log many hours making memories on the road with you.

Want to join me tomorrow night? Here are the details:

#BuckleUpforLife Twitter Party, Monday, September 8, at 8 p.m. CST

Make sure you RSVP for a chance to win one of four Evenflo car seats. Visit Traveling Mom’s post to RSVP and be sure to follow the hashtags #BuckleUpForLife and #TMOM

Then on Wednesday, September 10 join myself and the other blogger panelists for the Buckle Up For Safety Google hangout with child safety experts from 11 a.m. CST to 1 p.m. CST. This Google hangout will feature experts on car seat safety, including Toyota Safety Engineer Jennifer Pelky, as well as the Visionary of Buckle Up for Life, Dr. Victor Garcia. You will also have a chance to win one of 20 car seats being given away by event sponsor Toyota.

In addition to the Twitter Party and Google Hangout you have the chance to win a car seat here on my blog. I’m also giving away a new Evenflo car seat to one lucky reader! (The seat you receive will be based on your child’s needs.)

    I love all of the seats, but the Maestro harnessed booster would be fabulous to win for my daughter

  2. Jillian T says:

    I would love to win the Platinum Symphony DLX All-In-One Car Seat because it would help keep our little guy from overheating with the Outlast Performance Fabric.

  3. Jessica says:

    I would get the Embrace infant seat. We picked the infant seat for our first child because we liked the stroller it went with, but don’t like the infant seat itself! (Plus it’s almost six years old now and has been used A LOT!) Would love the (yet to be conceived) Baby #3 to have a nice new carrier!

    my daughter just turned a yr old in july and is on the small side I would love to get her a convertible seat that can rear face until she is big enough/old enough to front face the triump LX looks like a great seat 🙂

  5. Nicole-Lynn says:

    Oh how nice! The Evenflo Symphony LX all-in-one car seat looks great. I’d like to win that for my baby girl who will be 10 months soon and outgrowing her infant seat now. Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. Jill Myrick says:

    I would love to have the Symphony™ DLX All-In-One Car Seat or a similar car seat that would grow with my son.

    Their infant car seats have continually ranked in the top
    percentile in the industry in terms of safety, value, and ease
    of usage. A typical snug ride baby seat for babies comes with
    a cozy blanket, which uses organic cotton and has fleece lining.
    Obviously, because they grow so fast, none of us could keep up with purchasing the number of
    seats we required for our child if that were the case.

    I would love the Triumph™ LX Convertible Car Seat. My granddaughter is due October 9th and we need a safe car seat.
