Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 Event/Review and a $25 Babies R’ Us GC Giveaway! #GracoSafety

I was so honored that the wonderful people behind the SITS girls and Graco asked me to host a local Rhode Island event at Babies R’ Us this past Saturday unveiling the new Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40. I am a huge Graco fan, so not only was I excited to host the event, but I could not wait to try out the new Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40- the only infant- age 2 car seat on the market!

We had 2 times that we did our event this past Saturday- 1 pm and 230 pm. I was excited because not only was one of my best friends but also my fellow Rhode Island blogger, Jodi from BlushMamas, was hired to assist the event with me. At our first event, we had everything set up and ready to go. Graco sent us goody bags with adorable photo albums and other related swag for the people who attended the events. We also supplied cookies and water to our guests.

At our first presentation, we had a lot of our Rhode Blogging friends come and support us, as well as, learning about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect. We are very grateful for their support and all of them had wonderful questions for us, that we were readily able to answer about the Graco new car seat. We also had a handful of shoppers who also attended the first presentation. I gave an introduction, along with Jodi, talked a lot about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect, played a fun trivia game, and then had everyone fill out their raffles. Graco generously offered one person at each presentation a brand new Graco SnugRide just by simply filling out the raffle. The winners were so grateful!

At our second presentation, we had mostly local Rhode Island shoppers who were interested in learning about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40. We had a huge turnout with over 45 people attending. We were supposed to have the event for about an hour, but so many new moms were there and asking so many great questions about the Graco SnugRide that we stayed for awhile after chatting with the people.  It was truly a fantastic event and I have to personally thank the SITS girls and Graco for making this happen! They were so organized and everything went off without a hitch thanks to them!

Now, I must tell you all about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40! It is the first and only infant car seat to provide rear-facing protection for babies from birth to 2 years of age. This car seat enables parents to adhere to the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation by keeping their children in rear-facing car seats until at least age of 2 for maximum safety while on the road.

The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 allows parents to use the same car seat from birth to age 2. I am not even pregnant yet but I am already 100 percent certain that if I am blessed with another baby, I will definitely be buying the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40! I love the fact that I can use the same infant seat and then continue using the car seat rear-facing. I also love theta the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 has eight reclining positions so it allows your child to be comfortable for extended rear-facing. This is a huge feature because I know currently Zane does not have the leg room that he probably should have. However, as a parent, I think it is of utmost importance to keep him rear-facing. If I had the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40, I would not have any problem with the leg room.

The SnugRide Click Connect 40 also has the Simply Safe Adjust harness system. This system allows parents to adjust the harness and headrest to best fit their child as he or she grows, with just one hand and without having to rethread the harness. When I got to test out this feature on Saturday, I was just amazed! It was so easy to do with no effort made by me at all! This feature seemed really important to the fellow event goers, as well. They also loved the feature of the Click Connect attachment which allows parents to easily transition their babies from the car seat to the stroller through a simple, but secure, one-step “click.  Graco has truly made it so easy for us moms and dads out there while also making a product that is truly one of the safest on the market.

These above features allow the SnugRide Click Connect 40 to grow with the babies from 4 to 40 pounds, giving parents peace-of-mond that they can keep their children safe while rear-facing through the age of 2 and offering the portability and convenience of an infant car seat that allows parents to move their little ones in and out of the car without disturbing them.

I highly recommend taking the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40. It retails for $219.99 and is only available online or in stores at Babies R’ Us.

**The Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 – the first and only newborn to two-year infant car seat that actually grows with your baby from four pounds all the way up to 40 pounds. The car seat is designed for a parent on the go. The infant car seat can be easily removed from the base and used as a carrier when the infant is small, providing portability and convenience so you can easily move your infant in and out of the car without disturbing them.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently made the recommendation to keep all children in rear-facing car seats until the age of 2. Graco set out to make this product so parents can keep infants rear facing longer while still keeping them comfortable.

    I assisted with the #GracoSafety event here in NJ! It was such a blast and I’m loving this car seat! My favorite feature is hands down the no rethread harness! Thanks for sharing Melissa! Love the photos and looks like it was a great event!

  2. lily says

    Rear facing to the weight limit is extremely important- my first daughter RFed until age 3.5 and remained unhurt in two accidents during that time. It’s great if the leg room provides a little more comfort (although it is not dangerous to have their legs bent, there has never been a report of broken legs from rear facing car seats- and a broken leg is nothing compared to a broken neck).

  3. says

    Graco makes great products. I had a Graco stroller/car seat for the first 2 years with Brody. Held up really well…he just grew out of the stroller.

  4. Jennifer says

    The only Newborn to 2-year infant car seat that keeps your baby rear-facing for a full two years as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. …awesome

  5. says

    What I am concerned about is not all babies/children are the same and some have longer legs than others and so not too convinced that RF can accommodate EVERY child until 2 years of age. But I have to admit Graco makes great products though!

  6. says

    It’s great that it offers rear-facing to 2 years. Hopefully this will cut down on parents being too eager to forward face!

  7. Natalie Finch says

    I like that 8-position adjustable base grows with your child, so they have ample leg room for up to two years. Our last car seat my son ran out of leg room by 15 months. I also like that it holds from 4-40 pounds.

  8. Kate V says

    I like that you can have one car seat from birth to 40lbs. We have the Graco 35 for our 8 week old. We will upgrade to this car seat for the next baby we have!

  9. Vickie Couturier says

    •One-second, one-hand fold
    •Lightweight, sturdy frame
    •Stroller holds a child up to 50 lbs

  10. Stacey B says

    well of course I love that it’s good until theyre 2 years old. You get more for your money, and can keep your child rear facing. My current car seat fits awkwardly in backwards. although i keep it that way to keep my son safe

  11. Heather Wone says

    I had this carseat for my son and I loved that he was able to use it for so long because it is good up to 40 pounds!

  12. says

    I WISH this had been around right before Z and E were born!!! I have no liekd having to buy another car seat! Especially for chunky babes like Z and E!!! I heard you did a great job momma!

  13. says

    I love that the carseat adjusts for leg room! My kids were always skinny and tall and their legs were always so squished in rear facing carseats! I really like this new feature. I wouldn’t have any qualms about keeping them rear facing as long as they had the leg room!

  14. Anita Anderson says

    OMG that was my favorite BabiesRUs store in warwick RI. The lady who managers the baby register is awesome. I learned that this Graco car seat can hold an infant baby up till 2 yrs of age. I knew the recommendation was made to keep a child rear facing up to 2 yrs of age unfortnately there was not much room for the child’s legs. Thanks Graco for protecting our kids.

  15. Jessica says

    I like that the 8-position adjustable base grows with your child, providing the most leg room and a comfortable ride for up to 2 years. Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. says

    This is such a great idea – actually gives the kids room as they grow and they can be more comfy rear facing. And the fact that it’s a seat w/ a base means you can just have 2 bases, which makes switching cars SO much easier!

  17. Kortney Picker says

    I love that this can keep a child rear-facing up to 40lbs! We are looking for a new car-seat for my daughter and I love the Graco MyRide 65 Convertible Car Seat – Cuddle from babies r us!

  18. Jamie Brigham says

    I absolutely love that it goes up to 40lbs and the 8-position adjustable base grows with your child, providing the most leg room and a comfortable ride for up to 2 years

  19. brynna says

    Gosh, I like them all! Obviously the length of time it will last the child. But I think the footrest is kind of cool too!

  20. Stephanie G says

    It can hold up to a 50 pound child. This saves money, and allows us to get more use out of it. What a great product!

  21. Jill H says

    I love that it can be used up to 2 years old which is perfect because they can then move right into a convertible and forward facing.

  22. Ricki L says

    I just love that it makes it so much easier and less of a headache and saves money while keeping them rear facing for so long in the SAME seat!

  23. Rachel says

    I like that it has adjustments for height to accommodate taller infants between the ages of 1 and 2.

  24. sarah says

    I love that it adjusts for leg room! My daughter is really tall and we had to swap her out of her infant car seat before 6 months :( Wish I had this!

  25. Samantha D. says

    I like the 8-position adjustable base grows with your child, providing the most leg room and a comfortable ride for up to 2 years so you don’t have to buy a dozen seats( for at least a few years).

  26. Robyn Galloway says

    Obviously the weight limit, my kiddos are on the bigger side and out grew their infant car seat way to quickly!

  27. Megan says

    I love the Simply Safe Adjust harness system that allows the carseat to fit each child properly. The correct use of a carseat is so important!

  28. Jennie says

    If the click connect is the same as the snugride, I love it! It’s easy to snap into the base, or onto a shopping cart, or onto a stroller.

  29. Taryn Pasco says

    Its the only infant car seat that will keep your baby rear facing for two full year! Pretty awesome!

  30. aogable says

    I actually have this car seat because of the 2 year rear facing option. It is a great car seat.

  31. Selinda says

    Simply Safe Adjust™ Harness System is safe and simple with a one-hand harness and headrest adjustment

  32. susan varney says

    i like the 8-position adjustable base grows with your child, providing the most leg room and a comfortable ride for up to 2 years feature

  33. Alexis T says

    The only Newborn to 2-year infant car seat that keeps your baby rear-facing for a full two years as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

  34. MaryAnn says

    I love that it fits children up to 40 pounds. My son isn’t yet 40 pounds but we have had to buy multiple car seats due to size.

  35. Leslie Galloway says

    My favorite feature is the Simply Safe Adjust Harness System that can be adjusted with one hand. That’s so cool.

  36. Richelle says

    My favorite feature is rear facing for so much longer than any other seat that I can think of. That is sooo important.

  37. Michelle S says

    I like that it’s the only newborn to rear-facing car seat. usually after the weight limit is met you have to change out your car seat.

  38. Jill Myrick says

    I love that this one carseat will last my son from birth to 2 years and still remain rear facing.


  39. Melanie says

    It’s great that this one will stay rear-facing for so long! I worry about my LO outgrowing hers well before 2 years because she’s pretty big.

  40. Cami says

    What is not to love. The different positions, goes up to 40 lbs, and rear facing keeping the baby safer.

  41. Leslie Luke Stanziani says

    I love that you can adjust it with just one hand.I remember the hassle with struggling to adjust as my kids grew.

  42. Corey A says

    I love that it lasts so long. So many car seats are just too small for the kid to stay rear facing for so long.

  43. Matt Stringham says

    That it goes up to 40 lbs. My daughter is 14 months and has grown out of her chicco keyfit 30

  44. Richard Hicks says

    like that it’s 8-position adjustable base grows with your child
