Summer Infant Prodigy Infant Car Seat and Travel System – Giveaway

We were so thrilled when Summer Infant offered us their award winning Prodigy Travel System to review. With a baby coming in only a few short weeks we think it’s one of the must have items on every new parents list. A great travel system really is key, and even more so a great car seat!

The Prodigy Infant Car Seat received the highest score possible — a 5-star Ease of Use Rating – from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in every category: Evaluation of Labels, Evaluation of Instructions, Securing the Child, and Installation Features. That means this car seat is also one of the safest you can buy!

The Prodigy Infant Car Seat is guided by Smart Screen technology and a revolutionary belt tightening system, you know you’ve installed it correctly when a smile appears. It is that easy! No need to re-thread the straps either. With the SafeGuard 1-Adjust harness system, the straps automatically conform to your baby’s body for a perfect fit every time.  Installation is literally a breeze and my husband favorite features are on the base of the car seat.

Easily tighten the car seat into the car.

The three step installation process is so easy. A smile face indicates that you’ve done it correctly.Simply hit next on the buttons and move onto the next step.

The Car Seat is rear facing only and fits child 4 to 32 lbs and 32” tall. It comes in a number of fashionable patterns. I personally love how it fits into the matching stroller.

The matching Prodigyâ„¢ stroller accomodates children up to 50lbs and features a 3-position handle to accommodate all heights, a parent-assist tray with two cup holders and a covered compartment and a fully-retractable canopy with a clear-view window to let parents see their child.

Cup holders are a must for me in a stroller both for the parents and for kids.

This stroller has a very large basket to hold all of your belongings. It’s one of the features I like best about this stroller The wheels also make it roll easy and the wheel locks are so very easy!

The car seat also easily snaps in the stroller and you pull the lever at the back of the car seat to release the car seat. The stroller easily folds down and fit well in the back of my SUV. I could easily see popping in the car seat and going with this travel system. Plus the colors are so pretty, it’s perfect for a little girl.

For $329.99 for the entire travel system it really is a great deal. Plus you can pick from three different stylish patterns. I highly suggest that this be on every new expecting moms registry wish list!

  27. Eileen says


    I’d for sure get the Runway Fashion (it probably hides dirt and spots well, coming from a mom of 6…that’s important)

    and one of the main features I LOOoooove, is the self tightening system when buckling the lil’ ones up and the 3 position handle on the stroller. (my daughter has a stroller base she is borrowing and it is SO low to the ground she gets backaches and she is only 5 foot 5. Can’t imagine a really tall person using some of these. Hooray for the 3 postioning!!!

    thanks much!

I love the feature of having a smiley face so you know the carseat is installed correctly. If I won I’d let my sister pick which one but she’d probably pick the Prodigy Travel System Runway Fashion as the color would work for either boy or a girl.
