Heads up parents in need of new baby gear, be it strollers, clothes, or car seats: It’s a big weekend at Babies ‘R’ Us. First, the store’s insanely popular annual trade-in event, where customers can swap their outgrown gear for a 30-percent discount on new stuff, starts tomorrow. In case you needed a reason to clean out the basement.
On top of that, though, both Babies ‘R’ Us and Toys ‘R’ Us are also kicking off a weeklong President’s Day Sale that runs through next Saturday, February 24th. In addition to big cuts on everything from Barbie dolls to Graco high chairs, they’re also offering a “Buy 1, Get 1 50% off Mix & Match” promo in stores and online. In terms of baby gear for which you’d rather not pay full price, here are a couple of choice deals to keep an eye on.
Baby Trend Venture Travel System
Baby Trend’s 2-in-1 travel system includes the one-hand-fold Venture stroller and EZ Loc 30 Infant Car Seat (with a base) for babies up to 30 pounds. At $108, it’s about $40 cheaper than at other retailers.
Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Ultimate Playard
Naps on-the-go are what you get with Summer Infant’s lightweight Pop ‘n Play, which, in addition to a $55 price tag, rocks a weather-resistant floor, mesh sides, and a sun canopy.
Graco Swift Fold High Chair
Graco’s compact Swift Fold features a five-point harness, nine height adjustments so it grows with your kid, and easily folds up using one hand. It’s currently running $116 at other stores, but is on sale for $80.
