This past week, the Our Kids interns and I headed to the beach for a couple of days of fun in the sun, sand and waves.  We had perfect weather and a nice (albeit too quick) visit with family in Ocean City, NJ.  During our two days on the beach we tested out a few new products from RIO Brands we thought you'd enjoying learning about and bonus - you can enter to win a set of your own.

RIO Brands Lace-Up Backpack ChairLace-Up Backpack Chair

Nothing beats sitting on the beach, watching and listening to the waves.  It calms my senses and it is a happy place for me.  Having something to sit in that is comfortable and durable is a nice treat as well.  Enter the RIO Brands Lace-up Backpack Chair.  My favorite feature of the chair is the ability to carry it as a backpack.  The chair is super lightweight (it's just 7.8 pounds), so it didn't feel like I was carrying anything too heavy on my back.  It was comfortable to sit in and had four different seating positions that you can easily change by moving the chair arms.  There's a cup holder and a pillow for your head, which was also another nice bonus.

I played in the waves a bunch with the kids and every time I would come back to the chair, I was pretty much soaked.  I dislike sitting in a soggy chair, so it was nice to see that the chair material dries very quickly.

The only 'hard' part of the chair was learning how to close it.  But once I got the hang of it (simply grab the bottom of the front and rear legs and pull together), it was easy peasy.  The Lace-Up Backpack Chair comes in several different colors on Amazon.com and retails for approximately $36.

6ft. Tilt Beach Umbrella with Sun Blocking Silver Undercoating

I'm ashamed to admit that whenever I've got to the beach, I never use an umbrella.  After using the RIO Tilt Umbrella, I am officially converted!  The design of the umbrella is so fashionable and you can purchase it in a variety of colors.  The umbrella comes with a UPF 100+ rating, which is one of the reasons that I appreciated having this umbrella while playing on the beach all day long.  It was nice to take a break from the sun and I felt completely shaded when under the umbrella (but still keep re-applying sunscreen).

The umbrella also tilts, so as the sun moves, so too can your shade.  I'd recommend purchasing a sand anchor (what a cool invention) to use with the umbrella.  There wasn't too much wind the day I used the umbrella, so I can't speak to how it would hold up; however I've read that it does just fine.  I'd recommend purchasing two of these to set up next to each other allowing for more people to sit underneath and take advantage of the shade.  Depending on the color you choose, Rio Brands Deluxe Sunshade Umbrella retails for approximately $24 on Amazon.com.

Deluxe Wonder Wheeler Wide

Prior to trying out the Deluxe Wonder Wheeler Wide, I was the girl who you'd see schlepping toys, chairs and bags on every available part of my person.  No more!  This cart is the answer to my prayers.  The cart is sturdy - it's made out of steel and the mesh fabric ensures that it will dry quickly.  I loaded this cart up with chairs, umbrellas, towels and toys and it withstood it all.  There's a removable tote which is perfect for sunscreen, phones, books, etc.  The inner oversized mesh compartment has enough rooms for beach towels, toys, soft cooler, etc.  And there's a sweet little spot on the side of the cart where you can tie up your umbrella.

The Deluxe Wonder Wheeler Wide has room to carry up to four chairs.  How did it do in the sand you ask?  Tip: don't push the cart through the sand, but pull it.  The large back wheels help to get you through the sand and when on even terrain the front swivel wheels help guide the cart.  Bonus points for an easy fold-up after use so that you can throw it into the car and not take up a lot of space.  I also think this would make a great 'must-have' for any camping trip.  You can purchase the Deluxe Wonder Wheeler Wide online at Amazon.com and retails for approximately $60 and up depending on your color choice.  I've also seen them available at Bed, Bath and Beyond; Walmart and Dick's Sporting Goods.
