Yeah, we get it – you know car seats… 


Our daughter, Mary, 5, with her bright green Buckle Bopper nearby.

After all, you’ve messed with them time and time again if you have a bunch of kids!

But did you know 7 out of 10 children are improperly restrained in their car seats?

Yet 96% of parents think their children are correctly restrained in their seats?

Take a few minutes, strap yourself in (see what we did there?), and refresh your memory with some quick safety tips for car seats. You can trust these pointers and the slew of other good info because they’re from Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (and Lance’s wife) Sarah Osborne.

How about a GIVEAWAY?

In this episode, you heard Sarah and me talk about how much our daughter Mary loves her Buckle Bopper. And of course we love it too, because it means we’re not climbing into the back of the van to unbuckle her from her car seat when she runs into trouble. (She’s got dainty little hands!)

Watch our Facebook and Instagram accounts for a giveaway promo from Bucklebopper and Above Average! When you see us post Mary’s photo above, just comment and tag a friend who you think would like to win.

Details: After we post the first giveaway-related images on the two platforms above, the giveaway period will last one week. During that time everyone who “tags” a friend (Instagram) or comments (Facebook) will be entered to win one of three Buckleboppers. Winners will be chosen at random and notified. If a selected winner doesn’t respond within 48 hours, we’ll pick someone else. When we contact you, we’ll ask for your shipping address and send it out!

The giveaway is over. Thank you to all who entered to win!
