  • 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.

  • Bugaboo Lynx + Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna | 2020 | Full Stroller + Car Seat Review (Ratings | Review)

    Bugaboo Lynx + Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna | 2020 | Full Stroller + Car Seat Review (Ratings | Review)

    Bugaboo has recently done something just for the US market - they made a travel system. Partnering with Nuna (another brand in the Netherlands), they created the Bugaboo Turtle - a beautiful car seat that has all the features of the Nuna Pipa (the canopy! the load leg!) but all the benefits of a Bugaboo product (that beautiful clean fabric! white buttons = a function!). The best part - this car seat snaps onto their Lynx with no added car seat adapters. A real, true travel system.
