Wait, is that Sting?!? No it’s The Police, the Gurnee Police Department that is… Their friendly officers will be accepting your used and/or expired car seats for recycling! Don’t toss those beasts to the curb to crowd our landfills.  The Gurnee Police Department is one of the few organizations in the state that accepts car seats for recycling.  You can learn more in Car Seat Recycling in Lake County.

Green Kids Resale

And to thank you for being so green, attendees will receive a coupon for Green Kids Resale.  Bono will be so proud of you.

Kids growing like weeds?  There’s still plenty of summer inventory and children’s items available or save your discount for back-to-school shopping.  Jenna tells you more about our favorite resale destination.

Because active kids need wholesome fuel for their playground adventures, our Official Snack Sponsor GoGo squeeZ will provide samples of their scrumptiously squeezable YogurtZ pouches at every stop on our tour. YogurtZ is “So Cool, It Doesn’t Have To Be Cold.”  First come, first serve – supplies are limited. 

Please give a round of applause to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for making this year’s tour possible.  Parents will get to meet with folks from both Advocate Condell Medical Center and Advocate Children’s Hospital to learn about the resources available to support your family’s health.

As if you needed more reason to join us, your kids will have a chance to test out Stomp Rocket, the original 100% KID-powered rockets for active, outdoor fun. Run, jump, STOMP and send your rockets up to 400 feet in the air.  We’ll select one lucky winner to receive our very last Stomp Rocket  on our tour!
