With all of the crazy weather we’ve seen lately and the hazardous road conditions that come with it, it’s extra important that we’re buying the right gear for our kids. This is based on weight/height and making sure the products aren’t expired and that they’re installed properly.
Babies”R”Us is doing some big things for parents with the launch of a couple of safety initiatives: the SafeMax All-in-One Car Seat – the first rollover tested car seat in the US, and the Great Trade-In event at “R”Us stores nationwide.
The EvenFlo SafeMax All-In-One Car Seat is now available at Babies”R”Us stores and online. The reason this is such a big deal is because it’s the first car seat that has been rollover crash tested. I know that we don’t like to think about it, but it’s always better to be prepared. Rollover crashes don’t happen frequently (only about 2.1% of crashes) but they accounted for 35% of fatalities in passenger vehicle crashes in 2010.
The SafeMax All-in-One Car Seat is appropriate for infants and children from 5 to 120 lbs or up to 57 inches in height, in three positions – rear facing, forward facing and booster seating.
Some great features included in this car seat:
SafeZone Headrest: A combination of premium materials designed to absorb and dissipate crash forces, providing advanced protection where your child needs it most.
ParentLink PREMIER Service: Provides owners access to expert advice, including live video installation service with a certified car seat technician.
When in doubt, ask! Find a car seat inspection near you.
e3 Side Impact Protection: Significantly reduces side impact crash forces up to 50% through an expanded zone of protection and three layers of superior protection.
Don’t forget about the Great Trade-In Event! Through this national safety event, Toys“R”Us, Inc. provides consumers with its latest call to action to rid their homes of potentially unsafe, old and secondhand baby gear and furniture in exchange for savings on a new item that meets the latest safety standards.
The event take place Monday, February 1 through February 29. They accept any used cribs, car seats, bassinets, strollers, high chairs, infant swings, bouncers, travel systems, walkers, entertainers, play yards and toddler/twin beds. You’ll be able to save anywhere from 15-30% during this event.
