  • Clek Liing & Liingo | NEW 2020 | FULL CAR SEAT REVIEW AND COMPARISON (RATINGS | REVIEW | COMPARISON)

    Clek Liing & Liingo | NEW 2020 | FULL CAR SEAT REVIEW AND COMPARISON (RATINGS | REVIEW | COMPARISON)

    Today, Clek introduced the Liingo - North America’s first and only car seat without a base. How is this even possible? In North America, car seats must have LATCHes, to anchor the seat to the seat in your car. Until now, this has solely been on the car seat’s base, which you then click the carrier into. Clek has created a detachable LATCH bin* - meaning you can install your baseless car seat with latches. Before, doing a baseless install was only acceptable with the European seat belt path (which the Liingo still has!) - this is still a safe installation, but the ease of latches makes this secure installation a breeze.

  • Silver Cross Coast Stroller Review 2020 | FULL STROLLER REVIEW (RATINGS | REVIEW)

    Silver Cross Coast Stroller Review 2020 | FULL STROLLER REVIEW (RATINGS | REVIEW)

    Few companies as old as Silver Cross have been able to keep up with the modern family - new and unique demands come with every new generation - but they have. From the Wave to the newer, lighter model, the Coast - Silver Cross has kept up with what the new millennium wants AND needs with full functional single to double strollers. The Coast is slightly lighter than its predecessor, the Wave (~3lbs). And while it doesn’t have some of the ultra sleek features the Wave has (like the quilting inside the bassinet fabric to give it a more lavish look), it still comes with almost everything you need right out of the box, from the seat + bassinet to a cup holder + mosquito net.
