Safety 1st Car Seat Giveaway

Posted on Jun 10 2014 - 10:44pm by Susan Bewley

Father’s Day is fast approaching! Do you have a racing enthusiast on your hands? While Safety 1st can’t arrange for dad to meet his favorite race car driver, their car seats do incorporate the same technology that protects high performance drivers.

A leader in safety innovation, Safety 1st’s patented technology is called GCell HXTM which is a foam designed with hexagonal shapes for superior protection around the torso. Combined with Safety 1st’s Air Protect + Technology, they provide full body side impact protection in the event of a crash.

Below are two new Safety 1st car seats that incorporate GCell HX, so dad’s little one can ride with the same technology as a racecar driver:

The Safety 1st onBoard Air 35 Air + infant car seat features the new Air Protect + to keep children from 4-35 pounds safer in the car. This infant car seat is equipped with a 5-point harness, adjustable stay in the car base and Carry CurveTM Handle with an ergonomic design.

The Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air + convertible car seat features Air Protect + to keep children from 5-65 pounds safer in the car. Better yet, it meets the new requirements for the new 65 Pound LATCH rule.

    I learned that Dorel is the largest manufacturer of children’s car seats and one of the last to stay in the US as opposed to having them made overseas. That is impressive.
