I tested out the seat covers on a late afternoon grocery shopping trip last Sunday (we were stocking up for the blizzard that pretty much missed NYC). Because riding in a car is a big treat for Mason — we walk or take the subway usually — he goes all out with the snacks, the toys, and the superhero accessories every time we rent a car. And this cover just made the trip even more exciting for him; my design-conscious boy loved looking at all the covers and choosing which pattern he wanted for his seat (four car seat covers and strap covers come in the $29.99 package). For once I didn’t cringe when goldfish cracker crumbs started flying; the cover kept the crumbs from getting ground into the seat, and it even absorbed the drips from Mason’s juice box. As a mom who does at least one load of laundry a day, I also love that these seat covers are reusable — and then disposable (seriously, WHY do my kids trash everything that touches their bodies?!).
Here’s something else that I really like about this product: Save Your Seat was created by another mom — which, let’s face it, is probably why it makes so much sense. Founder Maggie Gue needed a way to keep her children’s car seats clean (from car sickness, accidents, and spills), so she came up with this solution. The covers work on stroller seats, changing tables, and high chairs too. Pretty smart!
