Chicco Fun Travel Activity Nest + Car Seat Safety Tips

My first two children were only 2 years apart, so we stayed at home more and didn't have as many activities that we traveled for.  Now that I have a 4 and 2 year old, we'll be starting sports as well as going to the park more,  and this baby will need fun activities to keep it busy while we're out and about.  Chicco recently introduced me to their new Fun Travel Activity Nest and I knew it would be perfect for when the baby has to tag along with my other kids.
The ideal product you can take with you wherever you go: this comfy, practical and light-weight product becomes a wonderful nest where your baby can relax and also an entertaining gym to keep them happy at home and when traveling. Ideal for every occasion: holidays, weekends with friends and days at the park are even better when you can share these enjoyable moments with your baby.
  • Pop-up breathable mesh canopy helps keep baby cozy during playtime
  • All-in-one carry case folds flat for playtime on-the-go
  • Adjustable toybars fold down for baby to handle toys during playtime on tummy
  • Colorful toybars connect to suspend toys above baby for interactive playtime at home
  • Requires 2 x AAA batteries (not included)
  • Age: 0M+
After recieving the Fun Travel Activity Nest, I'm even more excited about using it after baby arrives. It folds up really flat and has handles so it can be toted anywhere. Isabella is all about carrying bags around lately and picked it up immediately to carry it off.

As you can see, the nest is plenty big-even my two year old can fit in it. I was excited to see that the toys were even enticing to her, so I'm sure this baby will love them!

The fabric is absolutely adorable and gender neutral. The toys can be taken off of the straps if needed.

Like any good toy, the music part has a volume control switch!

September is Baby Safety Month.  Here are some Car Seat Safety Tips from Julie Prom, car seat safety expert:
  • Buckle up everyone, every time, every trip! In a crash or emergency braking, an unbuckled passenger can be thrown into other passengers causing serious injury. Also, ensure there are no heavy, loose objects in the vehicle that can be thrown around in a crash.
  • Keep children in a rear-facing safety seat until at least 2 years old. A recent study showed that children under age 2 are 75 percent less likely to die or be severely injured in a crash if they are riding rear-facing. Be sure to use a safety seat designed for the size and weight of your child.
  • Never put a rear-facing safety seat in front of an active air bag.
  • All children under at least 13 should ride in the back seat. The back seat is nearly 40 percent safer than the front seat.
  • Never add any product (including toys and car seat covers or liners) or make any changes to a car safety seat or booster that is not approved by the manufacturer of the seat. Add-on products can interfere with the crash performance of the seat. Beware! Many manufacturers of add-on products will state they have tested them—ONLY use products approved by the car safety seat manufacturer! The safety seat manufacturer is the only one that can confirm the test results of its product.
  • Never put an infant-only seat on top of a shopping cart. This makes the shopping cart top heavy. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the American Academy of Pediatrics warn against this practice due to numerous reported injuries from carts tipping over and/or babies falling out.
  • Finally, ALWAYS read and follow both the car safety seat instructions AND the vehicle owners’ manual when using and installing your child’s seat!

That is such a cute nest! Any baby would love it.

I had never thought about shopping carts tipping over with a car many people do it and I know we did when we had an infant seat. It's kind of scary to think about in hind sight!

We had a portable gym like that and it was a lifesaver when when we went to friends' houses who didn't have kids. This bassinette-esk feature seems great too!

Jan said...

What an awesome product. I love how flat it folds.

They have great products. I love the colors plus the fact that it is so easily portable is just the icing on the cake!

So much better then laying a blanket on the ground with some toys. More convient.

How cute! I love this!

I think this is a great idea. Keeps everything clean and keeps the kiddies entertained. Though I remember trying to put down a blanket once and all that little bugger did was roll off and start crawling everywhere. Great product!

Eileen said...

OH WOW! I have never seen this product before. What a great idea! I really love the adorable inside cartoonish zoo characters.

love how it folds up too. We have a small house and baby gear can clutter quickly. So nice!

This Fun Travel Activity Nest is much easier to transport especially that it folds flat to take to Grandma's house or to the park instead of the heavy, clumsy playard. I was surprised to see how much room is in it when I looked at photo of Isabella inside it. This would be a great baby shower gift.
