This recall involves the adapters for the UPPAbaby RumbleSeats that were manufactured between September 2014 and November 2016.  The adapters snap onto the stroller frame and are used to attach the RumbleSeat to the stroller converting a single stroller into a double in-line stroller. You are affected if the adapters for your Rumble Seat do NOT have a buckle that snaps the adapter into place. The recalled adapters simply fit onto the frame without the secondary support of the buckle. If you think you have…Continue Reading “Recall: UPPAbaby Rumbleseat Adapters”

The Kia Forte is particularly short in the back seat, much like the BMW X3 and all Audis. All of them are great cars, they are…Continue Reading “What Car Seat Fits in your Car?”
