Protect-a-Bub New Color and Improved Car Seat Shade

Spring and summer are quickly approaching and has us thinking about protecting our little ones from the harmful rays of the sun. Since we are out and about with our babies more in the summer and our strollers seem to be used more than ever, we wanted to highlight a couple updates in the world of sunshades.

Protect-a-Bub Introduces Chocolate Brown

Protect-a-Bub has a great collection of year round weather protection products that include fabulous stroller and car seat sunshades. This leading manufacturer of protective sunshades has recently introduced Chocolate Brown as a new color option.  The new color adds more style and coordinates perfectly with today’s popularity of the color brown that has been introduced to almost all aspects of baby gear including strollers and car seats.

Protect-a-Bub’s UPF 50+ Sunshades (Compact, Classic Single and Twin) will be offered in a Chocolate Brown color in addition to the already popular black and navy colors.  Made of lightweight breathable fabric, the Sunshades protect from 98%+ of the sun’s harmful rays and easily tie to any stroller, jogger, car seat or bouncy seat frame.  The honeycomb weave of the fabric along with the unique design provides maximum sun protection, excellent airflow and complete visibility.  Full coverage shade styles also allow for optimal insect protection.

The new Chocolate Brown Sunshade was available beginning March 2009.

Protect-a-Bub Introduces Improved Car Seat Sunshade

Ever been in the car listening to your child whine about the sun being in her eyes and not being able to do anything about it?  On longer trips in the car we have been guilty in the past of trying to hang blankets in the window in an attempt to block the sun only to partially obstruct the driver’s view.  (Note:  We do not recommend this!)  Or we have tried hanging those flimsy window shades only to prevent us from ever putting the window down or having the shade fall from the window at the most inopportune times.  What’s a mom to do?

Well, Protect-a-Bub came to our rescue in 2007 by introducing their innovative Car Seat Sunshade!  This Car Seat Sunshade is the only one of its kind available on the market that can be used for all infant and toddler car seats in both rear and forward facing positions and is completely self-supporting.  Since the sunshade attaches directly to the car seat, there is no need for window shades or view-obstructing attempts to block the sun. Sounds great, right?

Recently, Protect-a-Bub made it even better!  They debuted an updated design of the Protect-a-Bub Car Seat Sunshade that makes installation and adjustability even easier.  Plus, the shade’s new design offers an even more durable frame, a taller height for toddlers and additional coverage.

Available April 2009, the new Protect-a- Bub Car Seat Sunshade can be purchased online at or at specialty retail stores in the United States and Canada.
