“Thumbs UP! Thursday” #4

This will continue to come on every other week, as having it up every week is just too much and too little time to find what I need. 🙂

This past week I have been trying to make my mind up on who was going to be this Thursday’s “winner”. hehe 🙂
This retailer was one of the first ones I came across when I was looking for ERF retailers. Like some of the others, it’s small and privately owned. 🙂

 

I present to you….

Congratulations to rear facing specialist; Secureatot! 

 

 

Secureatot is owned by Jayne and Kirsty.
They offer specialist rear facing car seat advice, both online by e-mail and Facebook, and on phone. They also have two showrooms for you to come and try out car seats. 🙂
These are located in; Brinkworth and Malmesbury, Wiltshire.


Their website contains a mountain of factual information put to you in a simple way to help you understand better. 🙂

On Youtube you can find many of their install guides to help you install your seat if  you have bought it online. Their website has an online shop, though some of the car seats can only be bought from one of their Showrooms.

 

Our babies were nine months old when we first came across rear facing car seats. We were shocked at how much safer rear-facing car seats are compared to forward-facing and began researching straight away to find out the facts. We could not believe that this knowledge was not more widespread and that we as consumers were unable to make informed choices.

We discovered that rear-facing car seats are 5 times safer than forward-facing seats!

Kirsty did what a lot of people will do and tried to convince herself that forward facing was the way to go. After all, isn’t it more sociable?! Also, if it was that much safer, why could they not be bought in the UK (at that time the only option was to import from Europe)?

There were also a whole host of questions ‘where do their legs go’, ‘how can I see my baby’ etc, all of which were perfectly understandable and ones that many parents had asked.

In the end we couldn’t ignore the facts any longer and we decided to buy rear-facing seats for our babies. We were then both amazed that we had to import the seats from Sweden, which was time-consuming and costly.

So that’s why we set up this site – to help make information about rear-facing car seats more widely available and to give you the chance to buy some of the best seats available from our UK stock.

You can learn from our experience but you don’t just have to take our word for it… please read the evidence yourself… and then pass it on!

 

Opening hours:
Monday to Friday from 9am till 5pm
Saturday from 9am till 12pm

It’s once again Thursday and with it comes this weeks retailer recommendation! 🙂

This retailer is someone I happen to know personally. She’s a hard working woman with a knowledge base like Google. I swear I have yet to see there’s something she doesn’t know about car seats. hehe

Lets hear it for…

Rear Facing Toddlers is a retailer specialised in extended rear facing car seats for children up to up 18 kg (approx. 4  years) or 25kg (approx 6 years).
They are based in South London.

This retailer can offer you car seats from; Joie, BeSafe and Axkid.
Their website is stocked full of all the information you need on facts, FAQs, photos and more!

Expert advice and fitting from their qualified Child Seat Safety Adviser.

Here is a small quote from their website showing expert knowledge:

At Rear Facing Toddlers we specialise in Extended Rear Facing car seats.

It is five times safer for children under five years old to travel rear facing in the car. Children are not little adults and their skeleton is not mature enough to cope with the forces of a crash in a forward facing car seat. Keeping them rear facing until they are at least five years old greatly reduces their chances of being seriously injured in a car accident.

Although we sell rear facing car seats in our online shop, it is always better to try a seat in your car before making your purchase, because not every seat fits in every car. For a car seat to be able toprotect your little one, it needs to be installed and used correctly.

When a new baby is born one of the most important items of baby equipment parents buy for them is a rear facing infant car seat. But sadly most babies in the UK will only use that car seat for a year or even less. All nursery stores sell forward facing car seats that can be used for babies who weigh 9kg or over, and most parents think that this is the only option once their baby no longer fits in the infant carrier. Some even think that moving their baby into a big seat is a milestone to look forward to.
But in the event of a car accident, a child under the age of five in a forward facing car seat is five times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than in a rear facing one.

Congratulations to Rear Facing Toddlers!!

“ThumbsUP! THURSDAY” #2

thumb-up-for-ThursdayI 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….

7651558My 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!!!
