Anniversary Bash #10: kokopax city carrier {Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Sometimes the similarities between my daughters amazes me. Even though they are both young, there are interests and mannerisms and personality traits that they both share that make me smile. On the other hand, however, sometimes I can't help but shake my head at the differences that are already so very apparent.

As a baby and toddler, Big Sister E was so content that we didn't even have to baby-proof around here because she just didn't get into things. She was always just happy to hang out in a bouncy seat or ride in the stroller or a shopping cart and take life as it came without any problems. Little Sister B, on the other hand, is... active. Climbing, grabbing, squirming - when she has a problem, she'll let you know.

But something that has always made her smile is being carried. Getting to be up and see the world from a different perspective while also giving those little legs a rest - it sounds like a nice deal to me, too. And the one baby carrier that has been proven to be extremely versatile, stylish and comfortable for us both has been kokopax.

In fact, check out the continuing happiness from last October (from a kokopax classic carrier giveaway that I ran at the time) all the way through just this past week:
Founded by a mom (because really, moms always design the very best products) in 2007, kokopax has combined the benefits of using a lightweight frame with stylish, modern fabrics to create their amazing line of baby carriers. With a variety of features, prices and great designs there is a kokopax carrier to match any mom or baby's personality.

The simple and affordable city carrier is the perfect thing for making life easier with your baby from 6 months to 2 years old (or up to 35 pounds). For parents, the kickstand makes loading and unloading a breeze, the adjustable frame fits all sizes and the padded shoulder straps and waist support ensure comfort all around.

The fact that the city carrier only weighs 3 pounds, folds up well enough to be brought along almost anywhere (it even fits nicely in airline overhead compartments) and has a handy storage pocket to stash a few belongings makes this a great backpack carrier for both indoors and out. The durable, easy-to-clean fabric comes in 4 great color/pattern options and really completes the overall uncomplicated nature of these convenient carriers.

For the child, being positioned up at eye-level really does bring joy to most any baby. Little Sister B has always liked being right up where the action is while in her kokopax carrier so that she can check out the view, peer in to see what's going on or just snuggle up to Mommy or Daddy. The 5-pt safety harness keeps her completely safe and being able to attach toys right on to the included ring has always been an added bonus to keeping her entertained.

For on-the-go families, kokopax has the products to make life easier. From their stylish and roomy diaper totes to their contemporary and adorable sun hats to those award-winning carriers, hanging out at home or walking in the park will never be the same (or look quite as good).

For the ultimate in hands-free convenience, the city carrier provides an easy, comfortable, lightweight solution for parents and a safe and secure ride for their baby/toddler. Our kokopax carrier is by far one of my favorite pieces of baby gear that we own and I can't count the number of times that Little Sister B has hung out happily in there. When I look back at her early years, this carrier is going to be one thing that sticks out in my mind as a big success!

Thanks to kokopax's generosity, one person will also be able to experience the ease and comfort of their amazing carriers, because...

One lucky person will win a kokopax city carrier in their choice of fabric! ARV $99.99!

Nice product and well-written review. (Un)fortunately, have no need for a baby carrier. Will spread the word, though. We often joke that God knows what He's doing with the whole birth order thing. If baby #2 had been born first in a lot of cases, then there might not have been baby #2!
