Parents, we completely understand that it's not always easy to travel with kids in tow, but there's no reason to fret. We'll help you find ways to make the process a bit easier—and even tell you how to snag some perks along the way!
For a third year, Target invites shoppers to participate in its car seat trade-in program from April 22-May 4. If your kiddo has outgrown his or her carseat, or if you're in the market for an upgrade, locate a drop-off box near you that allows you recycle your old item. What's accepted? Infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness and booster car seats are among the pieces you can donate. Target will even accept expired or damaged products.
Although busy NYC parents are inclined to leave damaged materials out with the garbage, seriously consider adding this to your list of things to do in spring. Not only can you contribute to the brand's half a million recycled car seats (and counting) but you can enjoy a sweet deal: Shoppers who drop off their items will receive 20 percent off toward purchases such as new car seats, travel systems, stroller and baby home gear, among other items. Although you need to visit a local Target to participate, you can use your discount in-store and online until May 11. We smell a shopping spree on the horizon!
Support a good cause and get a welcome discount when you stop by your go-to store. Now that you have the proper travel gear, it's time to embark on all of the fun things to do with kids in NYC! As for the impending traffic? Well, that's out of our hands.
