As you can see from one of my previous posts (Peg Perego),I am learning more about Side Impact Protection (SIP). My favorite seats are the BRITAX seats that I carry in my business (www.onetinysuitcas.ca) and that I used for my own children.
I was recently on BRITAX’s website to try and better understand the benefits of the new FRONTIER and DIPLOMAT seats they have started carrying. I have had some customers ask me to add those to my inventory. These new seats seemed like a bit of overkill when I first looked at them (so much extra padding and wide wings of fabric).
After watching the videos on the BRITAX website (www.britax.com)- I get it. A few startling facts they shared on the videos:
– Side Impact Collisions are the most severe type of car crash
– Car Accidents are the #1 killer of American children
Just watch the videos (http://www.britaxusa.com/side-impact-protection/physics-101.aspx). I look at buckling my kids into their seats in a whole new light now.
