Wait, what is an Art Car?

Houston Art Car Parade 3

Art cars or art mobiles usually begin their lives as an older or used vehicle (car, truck, van, bus, jeep, golf cart, etc). The owner of the car decided they want to alter their automobile, not necessarily converting what’s under the hood, but instead transforming the exterior/interior of the car. Some artists approach the alteration of their cars cautiously and tentatively, opting to use materials of a temporary nature such as paper or tape, while others decide to radically change the original structure of the vehicle so that it in effect becomes a moving sculpture.

When and where is it held?Houston Art Car Parade 5

When: Saturday, April 14, 2018 we roll from 2pm – 4pm. The parade route opens at 11am for a perfect opportunity to see the entries up close and stationary – meet the artists!

Car Seat Safety Fit Test

booster safety

Rockabye often is asked questions about car seats, boosters. Particularly, at what age can children ride without a safety seat. We always check various sources on a constant basis, since safety is essential to our business, to assure we are up to date on car safety. Unfortunately, car safety laws and regulations vary from State to State. Thus, this causes confusion so parents must remain vigilant when planning road trips. It’s best to follow the recommendations outlined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This federal agency’s guidelines are either equal or more stringent than individual State requirements.

Check out this excellent video about car safety for kids. The Car Seat Safety Fit Test is the ideal measure to keep kids safe. Continue reading Car Seat Safety Fit Test
