Happy Holidays! 😀 Our holiday started off with a bang, and we are currently cruising around in a 5-door hatchback Fiat Punto 2003 model! Not to worry, hubby is OK, but our car is not, so my wonderful father in law has lent us he’s stepson’s car for a while. 🙂 So with no further ado, here is the Britax Two Way Elite in a Fiat Punto 2003, and it’s in the front seat! ❤ It’s is a convertible car seat that rear faces to 25KG, and is also now the only manufactured seat that harnesses to 25KG forward facing, as the Britax Xtensafix is no longer in production. I do however strongly advocate for using it rear facing as it’s outgrown at the same time both ways!
I mentioned in my last Thursday post that I was going to start doing this every week. I would like to introduce to you “ThumbsUP! Thursday” which is what the Thursday retailer post is going to be called. It might also be a “ThumbsDOWN” at some point… we’ll see how we get on. 😉
This week’s Thursday is a few day’s late because of the Joie Stages precautionary recall of a few of their seats, but better late then never right?
This weeks retailer was unknown to me until yesterday, and I am happy to announce to you….
My precious cargo .. is a retailer who are specialists in extended rear facing car seats for children up to 18 kg (approx. 4 years) or 25kg (approx 6 years).
They are based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.
This retailer can offer you car seats from BeSafe, Klippan & Axxkid, expert advice (one of their staff is ” a qualified and practicing physiotherapist with experience of assessing posture and seating for disabled children and also of working with people with spinal cord injuries.”) and their website is full of excellent factual links and information!
And photos! You know how I love photos! 😉
A quote for their website that made me huggle them some more:
“Rear facing is 5x safer for young children, so why aren’t more UK parents choosing this option?
From our experience, it’s because awareness of rear facing in the UK is low, and because availability of these seats is limited. We created My Precious Cargo to fill this gap. We provide expert knowledge to assist you in choosing a rear facing seat that is correct for your vehicle and for your child, and we aim to increase awareness of the safety benefits of keeping your toddler rear facing.
We offer viewings and demonstrations of our range of rear facing seats on an appointment basis, and are also here to answer any questions you may have about rear facing. Contact us, we’d love to hear from you.”
Congratulations My Precious Cargo Limited!!!
