The Summer Survival Guide

66 things we really want right now

With just three days until Memorial Day Weekend, it's officially time to stock up for summer. To that end, the StrollerTraffic editors and scouts have hit the trade shows, scoured the web, and revisited old favorites to whip up our first annual Summer Survival Guide—the definitive list of everything parents need (or at least want) to enjoy the hot season with a wee one.

Spanning six categories—fashion, beach & pool, travel, sun safety, outdoor fun, hostess gifts—the Guide rounds up our picks for everything from the ultimate spill-proof sippy cup to the ideal outdoor blanket. We've zeroed in on a fantastic travel stroller and a super-handy stroller bag, and discovered a healthy (and delicious) way to keep the little ones hydrated. You'll also find a clever sand mold, a hose they can drink from (safely), and hooded towels that don't look like all the other hooded towels—all in the Guide.

And yes, there are promo codes. We've got some rockin' giveaways, too—one every day this week. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to see what's up for grabs.

Happy (almost) summer!
