Don't hate me, I succumbed but I did it all for you... A Chicco Stroller Giveaway

*my very own blog contest (winner gets a free stroller) coming up so keep reading,purty please

Oh the pressure. I never intended for this blogging thing to be anything more than an outlet, a means of cheap therapy,a tool to help me maintain my sanity in the chaos that is my life.
Slowly it became more.
I've met all sorts of wonderful blog friends - moms , dads, people,incredible people with a lot of amazingly brilliant, funny and poignant things to say and it's meant more to me than you'll ever know. And that in a nutshell is what blogging has done for me. Blogging for me was never a moneymaking tool or a means to gain freebies. So when I was contacted by a company about promoting their new product I wasn't really going to consider it.
But then I remembered back to when I became pregnant and nine weeks later found out I was having two babies and then eight weeks later experienced complications and landed on bedrest for four full months. Not being able to work full time led to financial difficulties. Luckily family and friends came through for us offering meals, purchasing baby supplies and gear and emotional support. And I truly appreciated that.
Enter Chicco, the Italian infant and toddler toy and gear company with their new "fancy pants lance" Ct 0.1 premier stroller. From September 1 through September 30 they are giving away one Ct 0.1 stroller a day. No strings attached, you simply fill out a survey and you'll be entered to win.


And if you're feeling lucky enter my very own blog contest. One lucky winner will get a Ct 0.1 stroller of their very own. Paraphernalia for infants/toddlers is not cheap and while maybe you've already been there and done that perhaps you know of someone in need. Enter on behalf of a friend/neighbor/community member in need.

The contest: Ct 0.1... that's kind of a boring name isn't it ? Leave me a quick comment with what you think the name of this bad ass stroller really should be and you'll be entered to win. Entries/comments must be posted by 09/21/07 4:30 PST . One winner will be selected at random.

Enjoy, spread the word if you want to and most importantly good luck.

The Chicco-bebe Stroller.

I'm entering this contest to spread positive vibes on the IVF I'll be careening through in November...yikes.

Worker Mommy said...

I'm sending you positive vibes too, Lol!

Omaha Mama said...

Sounds good to me. Count me in.

I'd say contest = good.

Lady Latte said...

Don't let me win, my kids are teenagers and the freight to Sweden probably is higher than the cost of the stroller!

Susie PSU said...

I'd call it the Chicco-Go. It seems like it would be fast and easy to get the kids in and out of if you are in a hurry!

Sarah said...

I'd call it the Chicco Cruiser!

I need a new stroller for Baby!

Lollie said...

Damn you Susie Psu - yours is better than mine. I like the Chicco-Go.

Ooooh! Ooooh! Chicco-Stro. I'm changing my entry.

And mucho mucho for the vibes WM - I can feel them.

Candace said...

I'm going with P.M.S.
Pimp My Stroller
a la the MTV show Pimp My Ride (www.mtv.com/ontv/dyn/pimp_my_ride/series.jhtml)
not that I watch MTV or anything.
Well, maybe just once. Tonight. To see Brit Brit sing on their awards show!

Wendy said...

I'm from Susie's blog. I think I will go for the Chicco Crush. The orange color on it reminds me of a crush soda. Which by the way I never drink, but it sounds delicious at the moment.

MommasWorld said...

Nothing wrong with Give-Aways. I have them at my blog from time to time. I have drawings for the make up bags and extra I get from Elizabeth Arden.

Good Luck with your Give Away!

phunkymama1 said...

Your sister told me about this, so I thought I'd stop by :-)
I'd go with Chicco Chic!

Julie said...

I would name it the "Go Baby Go Stroller" . . . it is so fun when you can go places and know they are comfortable. This looks like a great product! Thanks for the giveaway.

As a new mom-to-be, I recently added Chicco to my registry. We took it for a test drive and it's very smooth, plus it received top ratings. We also just moved cross country and with funding tight, a new stroller would be wonderful.

After reviewing the photo closely, noticing the neutral hues of grays and black, and the polished sleek look of the metal, I immediately considered a city setting. Chicco's names are rather simple and what I found fit best was:

"Chicco Cosmopolitan"

Cosmopolitan meaning cultured, global, gregarious, metropolitan, polished, public, smooth, sophisticated, urbane, well-traveled, worldly etc...

It just has that sleek look that would fit in any urban scene...from NYC, DC, to London. Metropolitan was my first thought but Cosmopolitan blanketed much more.

Thanks for "succumbing"

Take care, Kim

Who even has the job of naming strollers out there. Is this a job that just anybody can get into or is there some sort of track kids can get on in school or maybe a degree in stroller naming.

Well, I don't have a stroller naming degree but I will give it my best shot.
