I had planned on reviewing my special Vichy Birchbox, but I'm a little upset with Birchbox right now since I have yet to receive my March Birchbox and my tracking number shows my box traveling all over the US. By the time it gets to me April will be here and my box will have hit all 48 contingent states. So, I'm holding off. Plus this product has a coupon code that will run out soon.
When you get pregnant the hunt for the best products is on. Everyone has a favorite and you can spend a lot of money on needless items.
Well, while pregnant I found a coupon code for a carseat cover. I know these are important, especially on windy days. So I go check out this carseat cover that I can get for free. FREE! I was a little skeptical, but when I arrived at THIS PAGE I was pleasantly surprised at how awesomely cute and practical these gems are. The coupon code even worked to take $50 off their Whole Caboodle set. So I ordered it.
This is the Carseat Canopy. It straps to the handle of the carseat so there is no slippage happening and a blanket falling off.
When I saw this, I had to pay the extra and get the whole caboodle.
The whole caboodle comes with a cover for the actual carseat, an umbrella replacement, headrest, and a matching blanket, along with the canopy above. At the time they had a special going on where the whole caboodle was $79.95 and they honored the coupon code for $50. So I paid $29.95 for the $135 whole caboodle. I wasn't sure the quality, but I knew I was willing to waste the $30 to find out.
It came in the mail the day of my last baby shower, and I immediately stopped getting ready to put it on the carseat. WOW! I was amazed at how completely awesome this is. The soft minky is perfect for Ben's delicate baby skin and I always use the blanket since it is still kind of cool. It was easy to assemble (comes with instructions) and was put on the carseat in a matter of 10 mins. (You do have to undo the straps on the back of the carset to thread them through the cover and you will have to take off your umbrella to put the new one on. However, the umbrella snaps off and I saved it for when/if we ever decide not to use the cover anymore.)
I love the canopy that covers Ben in the carseat. It is thick so the wind doesn't go through it.
The bad thing? People do ask me this question when I have the canopy down (which is often when we are in a store to discourage dirty hands from finding their way to my baby)
"Is there a baby in there?"
Ummmmm.... No, I'm just a weird, freaky person that carries around a carseat without having a baby.
Ok, here is the best part. They have brought back the coupon code and sale!!
Right now the whole caboodles are $79.95 and there is a $50 coupon code.
I'm not sure when the code runs out. Sorry about that. It is usually good for about 2 weeks or so.
This is great if you are expecting or would be one awesome gift!!! You would the hit of any shower and new mommy!
Have a great Thursday! (Friday is so close!!)
