I‘m very excited to announce that I’m teaming up with Graco as part of their Generation Graco global blogger panel in the UK for 2017.
Last Saturday, we were invited to a very special launch event for Generation Graco, where we would get to see Graco’s flagship products and their latest product launches in action.
Much to my older boys delight, the launch event was at Legoland. The first part of our day was spent in the Legoland Hotel.
At first, I was slightly worried that the boys might not wait particularly patiently for this portion of the day, as they were so excited to go into the park. But, as you can imagine from a Legoland function, there was an abundance of Lego everywhere, and even playstations set up with their favourite game: Lego Star Wars. I actually had trouble convincing them to leave the hotel when the time came to head to the rides!
Whilst the boys played, I took a look at Graco’s products. The smart and fashionable design of the Graco Evo caught my eye immediately. And the Featherweight stroller (the lightest in the UK!) looks amazing for travel.
Graco is a brand that I haven’t had all that much experience with in the past. So, what really appealed to me about becoming an ambassador was being given the opportunity to trial products across the Graco range It’s a unique chance to really get to know the range, and provide helpful reviews for anyone currently eyeing up a Graco product.
A couple of things really stood out to me from my time at the Generation Graco launch event. Firstly, Graco have some really smart designs – definitely not the bulky plastic look that I must admit I’d been guilty of preconceiving.
Secondly, Graco have some very innovative and helpful features, such as easily adjustable shoulder straps on the car seats (this is a godsend – I still don’t know how to adjust the shoulder straps on any of our current car seats – I always have to get Sam to do it). I’ll talk in more detail about these features in my review posts, but it’s obvious that Graco have thought very carefully about ease and convenience for parents.
After a lovely lunch with Graco, we were invited to go and have fun in the park for the rest of the day. The boys got to geek out at the Star Wars mini land, and Rory even got to ride his first proper rollercoaster – I was worried that it might not be the best idea, but he LOVED The Dragon.
Being part of Generation Graco means that over the next few months, I’ll be bringing you news of new product launches, plus reviews of new and hero products across the Graco range. There are a couple of products in particular that I’m very excited about – so stay tuned for more!
I also filmed a day in the life video, which you can watch here:
