Coming Soon- The Summer Infant Prodigy

Yet another cool baby item that comes out after my children are born. I’m excited about the Prodigy and I’m not even pregnant (or planning to have another baby!) I’m borderline OCD about installing car seats correctly, which is not necessarily a bad thing considering the purpose. I absolutely love how Summer Infant has integrated a user-friendly base to make installation not only simple but also effective. Another huge plus? At anytime you can check your car seat base to make sure it’s still properly installed- even if you didn’t remove it! The smiley face gives you the GO and baby’s ready to ride… safely.

As of right now, Summer tells us that the Prodigy is only compatible with their Prodigy Stroller. The Prodigy stroller will be sold as a travel system, with the infant car seat, in any of the fashions and will also be available separately in the Uptown fashion. The Prodigy infant car seat (in all the fashions) will be available to buy without the stroller. Both the stroller and car seat will be first available at Babies R Us in May/early June 2011.


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. With 7 out of 10 car seats currently being installed incorrectly, the Prodigy takes the guesswork out of a proper installation and replaces it with a secure fit to both the car and baby.



  • Smart Screen technology, located on the car seat base, walks you through the 3 step installation process.
  • An innovative belt tightening system easily fastens the base to the car with one hand. No more contorting in the back seat to get a perfect fit.
  • Removable, newborn head and body support.
  • Matching Upstart Stroller in Uptown fashion available.
  • Car Seat is rear facing only and fits child 4 to 32 lbs and 32” tall.
  • Base requires 3 “AA” batteries (included).
