Review & Giveaway: Zapp Xtra by Quinny

Finding a stroller that fits your personal needs is not an easy task, especially when it comes to traveling. Who wants to lug that big ol’ stroller around a busy airport only to have to fold it back up once you’re ready to catch your flight? I know I don’t! And how aggravating is it to have a stroller take up half the room in the trunk meaning that you’re going to have to pack a few less pairs of shoes. Definitely not me.

We are the (proud) owners of a Hyundai Sonata. Which is great on gas mileage for our many roadtrips … but not so great when it comes to week long vacations that require extra packing, and of course a stroller for the toddler. Luckily after reviewing the new Quinny Zapp Xtra stroller, I’ve found a solution to not only the airport dilemma, but also the trunk space/shoe dilemma.

With its sleek, modern design and compact fold with seat attached, the Quinny® Zapp™ Xtra with Folding Seat is ready to go wherever life takes you. When used with either the Maxi-Cosi Prezi® or Mico® infant car seats, your child can profit from the exceptional ease of use of the Quinny® Zapp™ Xtra with Folding Seat from birth. The Quinny Zapp™ Xtra with Folding Seat lets you enjoy a hassle-free life with your child. Its reversible and reclining seat allows you and your child to travel your way.

Bash and the Pirate Pig BOOK REVIEW

While my son is only five … he has been into chapter books since he was four. It started with a scooby doo book and ever since then, he’s been a chapter book kind of kid. Obviously he’s just learning to read so obviously I am the reader of these books so, in all honest, the chapter books we read together have to keep me entertained as well! But we love reading the books and then using our imaginations as to what the characters look like, what they’re doing, etc.

So when BH Publishing contacted me about reviewing their newest chapter book, Bash and the Pirate Pig by Burton Cole … the name alone had us hurrying up to finish our current read.
