[AD] With my eldest daughter being twenty three years old now, I have watched how far seats have evolved over the years and the changes have been amazing – one of the biggest changes I had seen though is that of the booster seat.
These used to simply be a block of plastic that could be easily moved around but had minimal safety features and big changes have been made; and I’ve not seen more changes than the BeSafe izi Flex FIX I-size, which is the first booster seat to comply with safety regulations.
We have been lucky enough to try out this high backed booster seat for the past few months and have been nothing but impressed.
The youngest boys who are now six and eight still very much in need of a car seat so this seat was perfect as it spans a good age range from four to twelve.
The chair is super lightweight and even includes a carry handle in the back of the chair to make it easy to move around and installing with the ISO Fix system took a mater of minutes.
Another issue we face being is large family is the amount of space car seats take up in the car, but with the slim yet space design this seat offers we easily fit two chairs in with a teen tucked in the middle. It has in fact been designed so well you can actually fit three seats in side by side.
One of my favourite features is the hight adjustment that is a a spinning handle on the side of the carseat that give you the perfect hight in seconded without having to try and fiddle around behind the chair.
Comfort is still key with older children and this is the first booster seat I have seen with a recline function. It also comes with additional padding on the chin and chest to allow for a comfier journey. The lap belt is also threaded through a clever magnetic loop which is something you wouldn’t ordinarily get with a booster seat.
I have listed a few of the many stand out features for you below:
• PAD for additional chin and chest protection.
• Lockable ISOFix arms for easy instillation.
• Side impact protection.
• Shoulder and lapbelt guiders for best position.
• Headrest shaped for improved view and sleeping support.
• Easy height adjust to grow with your child.
• Integrated carry handle.
• Slim design yet lots of space.
• Detachable bumper to allow three in a row.
• Compliant with new UN R12 safety regulations.
For me this is the perfect final stage car seat. It has a high level of safely, but the comfort and fit has not been compromised in achieving this.
The boys are happy with them comfortable ride and we are safe in the knowledge it will be a safe one!
