Infant to Toddler car seats/playpens/etc in the late 1970s - 1987

(I've searched the terms in Wikipedia and googled: 1970s car seats/1970s travel playpens and haven't found what I've been looking for)

Place: US
Time Period: late 1970s/1980s

After some attempts at googling, I figured I should probably go to the place where it's most likely there are people who have actually used what I'm looking for.

I was wondering if there were easy, compact travel playpens available in the late 1970s through the mid-80s (Well, I'm sure there were travel playpens) and what were they like. Were they like the ones we have today and did they have the bassinet addition? Would they be able to hold the weight of an eight year old?

What were car seats like? Were they able to attach to strollers like they do now?

What necessary travel/sleep furniture is needed for an infant - four years old? I know car seats and such but is there anything else I should be aware of?

EDIT: Thanks so much everyone for your answers. It makes me so glad to have been born in the late 80s *grimace*
