Win a Traveling Toddler!

We’re giving away two!

Traveling Toddler 2 traveling toddler 3

Traveling with kids can be a challenge.  Any product that makes it a little easier is one I’m happy to check out!  We had planned on trying out this innovative product on our most recent trip, but ended up not taking a car seat.  So, while I can’t give first hand experience, I can say that I think this is a great idea and if we had taken the car seat, it would have made it much easier to get around.  We have two to give away and I’d love to do another post once our winners have tried them out!

Here's how to enter . . .

1. Visit http://travelingtoddler.com/.
2. Come back here and leave a comment telling us why you could use this great product.
3. Be sure to leave your e-mail if you don't have a blogger ID.  Bloggers- you must have a public profile and listed e-mail for us to find you.

Who wants extra entries?!

Wow! How inventive...
My husband and I travel a ton and this would be so easy to cart around our little guy and fun for him to not have to get tired walking/or having us carry him.
This strap would be sweet.

I LOVE this product - I have traveled a lot with our kids and it is a terrible experience at times. Having this seat attach to the rolling suitcase is awesome!

I'd love to have this because it would make traveling with our toddler (and her brother) a whole lot easier. No need to take the stroller AND the car seat separately throughout the airport! Woohoo! Thanks for the chance!

We are going on our first airplane trip with both of the boys. The added stress of packing everything is enough. This would make hauling the carseat that we have that much easier. Thanks for the opportunity.

I like that this is not a big bulky full travel system. With twins, the equipment always seems so big even when it says compact. I could really use this to cut down on the amount of space out baby gear takes up.

this would be great when traveling with a toddler because he's restrained at the airport. we'll probably go visit the in-laws later this year

Where planning a trip to visit friends soon with our one year old twins. The traveling toddler would be a lifesaver- imagine cutting down on having to carry 2 extra carseats!?

We are taking a trip to Europe this summer with our 1 1/2 year old (and our other three children...aged 10, 16, and 21). Needless to say, there's going to be a lot of luggage, and this would cut out the need for a stroller, and allow us to have the car seat in vehicles.

That's really cool. It would work great for my grandkids.

Both sets of grandparents live at least 1,000 miles away so we travel a lot! Last year we had the worst time dealing with the stroller, our carry ons, the car seat (Britax...HUGE) and our son! This would be such a big help

susan said...

We travel interisland just about every weekend for DH's job. This would be a great help and save us a ton to not have to get so many car seats!

the carrying case is nice

Starryphate said...

Wow, this is really a great invention. I would love to win this because my child is about to go into a covertable carseat that would fit this and we travel a lot. This would be a lifesaver.

mogrill said...

I love the Compactness of this! Thanks for the chance.

What a great thing to have! The is nothing more stressful then dragging kids, bags, and car seat through the airport trying to make a connecting flight. Would love this for the vacation this summer.

I couldn't use this, but my brother and his family could. They have a toddler now and another child on the way, so anything that makes travel easier will be a big help.

Ooh ooh!!! I could totally use this. I took my 3 kids across the country last summer (2 in car seats) by myself. I did manage but this would have made it sooooo much easier. I'm doing it again this summer, pick me, pick me!!!! Thanks!!

This would be awesome to have!

I could use it when we travel for my daughter. She is starting to get heavy, so this would be great to not have to carry her around!

Thanks!

This is a must have! I would love to win becauase we will be taking our first sirplane trip with a toddler this summer. The last time we flew, our daughter was 4 months old and it was a breeze! I'm sure this next trip will be a bit more challenging with an active toddler. This product would be a huge help! m_huston(at)hotmail(dot)com

Erin Anderson said...

We are traveling with our 14 month old for the 1st time to Florida. We have to change planes & then continue on to our cruise, so this would be soooo helpful.
Thank you!

This is great. I could have used this when I was traveling alone with my daughter. It would be great to have for future travels.

Sherry R said...

What a great idea! There have ben many times traveling when this would have come in handy instead of carrying our toddler and loading the stroller with luggage!

I would love to win the traveling toddler for our family! After our last airplane flight I told my DH we would never travel by airplane again. We have three small children and also travel with our dog too! Just going through security is a nightmare. My daughter tends to wander off, I have a 5 month old baby that needs to be held, the dog needs to be taken out of his carrier and inspected, I have to take off my jewelry bc it always triggers the sensors, kids need to take off shoes. This would be such a relief for us.

Momma said...

we travel quite a bit so this would make the airport visit a lot nicer!

Suzie G. said...

I think this is really neat because it's difficult traveling with two kids and a car seat. At least I'd have a better handle on my toddler, plus she'd enjoy the ride as well!
