Brica isn’t new to baby products. You may not have heard about them because they have a new name! You see, Brica used to be the Blue Ridge International Products Company since 1991. They are still focused on innovating products that keep your little ones safe and making parenthood simpler and more fun for the whole family. They are now known to parents everywhere as BRICA. In case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “Bree-kah” like the fancy French cheese.
Now that you know who Brica is – we wanted to spotlight a couple Brica products that make traveling and on-the-go easier.
Are you kids always looking for somewhere to set their snacks and drinks? No child cup holder in sight on your kid’s car seat or stroller? Do you wish you could just add a snack tray that would work on almost all your strollers? And yes, we know you have more than one stroller!
Good news! The Brica Snack Pod might be just what you are looking for. It is a handy snack pod that attaches to your stroller or car seat in seconds. It even works on wagons and shopping carts too! This two compartment pod is ready for drinks and snacks for on-the-go. One side is a cup holder with non-slip inserts to accommodate most bottles and cups. The other side has a removable snack cup with lid that is dishwasher-safe (top rack only!). The entire pod clamps on easily to your car seat or stroller with an easy to turn adjuster knob. Seriously, no tools required on this baby! Turn the knob to clamp the pod on and you are ready to go. The clamp opens to 2 1/4” so we could even clamp it onto the side of our convertible car seats with no problem.
If you are looking for a great snack and drink holder for your child’s stroller and car seat, definitely consider the Brica Snack Pod.

Ever tried to carry a huge convertible car seat through the airport? It’s heavy. It’s hard to hold. It’s awkward. What you need is a car seat travel bag! It makes traveling with a car seat so much easier. The Brica Car Seat Travel Tote is a sturdy, economical bag made especially for a convertible car seat. It can be worn on your back like a backpack (we give this job to dad!) or pulled behind you like a suitcase on its handy wheels.
This Car Seat Travel Tote is made of a durable, water-resistant fabric that helps protect your car seat from dirt and water damage. We love that the extra-long zipper goes basically from top to bottom to make it easier to load and unload the car seat. The tote features wheels on the bottom and two pull handles on top to allow you to wheel the car seat behind you instead of carrying it. While the pull handles are handy, they are short and we would love to see them extend more so it would accommodate taller parents. If you want to be hands-free, you can carry the car seat on your back with the adjustable, detachable shoulder straps. The only thing we would add is shoulder pads on the straps to make it a more comfortable carry. You can store the shoulder straps in the outer storage pocket when not in use. To make it even more airport friendly, there is an ID card pocket for speedy baggage check.
Even though we think the bag is durable, it’s important to note that it is not padded. It will not protect the seat if the baggage guy tosses it from the plane, misses the baggage cart and it hits the ground. In the tote’s defense, no bag is going to help that! *A little birdie told us that Brica is preparing to launch a new and improved version of the Car Seat Travel Tote later this year! We can’t wait for the improvements.

When you get to your travel destination, you are going to want a bed for your baby. Space-saving is key when traveling and if you have a newborn, you may not want to lug around a heavy playard. All your baby would need is a small bassinet and Brica has just that. What’s better is that Brica’s bassinet is a travel bassinet that folds compactly and can even be placed in your suitcase or carried with the handy carry handle. The bassinet is lightweight weighing less than 3 lbs, so it won’t weigh down your luggage.
The safety of bassinets may concern you especially for one that folds, but it should ease your mind that this Brica bassinet meets the ASTM Bassinet Safety Standard. The bassinet features a Safe-T-Lock system that keeps the bassinet set-up and safe. Even though the bassinet folds, this is no flimsy bassinet. We found that it has a durable frame construction.
The sides have two mesh panels to allow adequate air circulation and a removable (firm) mattress pad and sheet comes with the bassinet for easy cleaning. The sheet is a fitted sheet made especially for this bassinet and fits nicely on the mattress.
This 20×26” bassinet will fit your baby from newborn to approximately 3 months. It’s not huge but your new baby won’t need a lot of room and the size makes it easier to travel with.
