Purchase incentives usually involve a zero-percent interest rate, cash back after purchase or no-cost options, but Nissan is going another direction to target families with young children.
One of the problems a family that relies on child seats faces is finding a product that fits both their cars and child. For those of us without kids, it’s easy to assume that all seats fit all cars and kids, right? Wrong.
Kids come in all different shapes and sizes – so does one type of car safety seat fit all? An important question that seems to be popping up more frequently is if overweight children need a car seat that’s designed just for them – and according to a new study, the answer is no.
Temperatures are on the rise and it’s important to remember the dangers of leaving children in a hot car. According to child safety organization Kids and Cars, since 1998 through to the end of May 2011, 500 children have died as a result of being unintentionally left in a hot car.
If you are looking for a quick way to learn how to juggle, just haul around a car seat. Anyone with kids will tell you they are cumbersome, bulky and an armful, especially if you’re carrying anything else with you. Wouldn’t it be great if car seats were as light as air? Well, the next best thing may be on the market soon – Inflatable car seats.
The Easycarseat is an inflatable seat that is suitable for kids four and up and who weigh 33 to 79 pounds. Tipping the scales at around two pounds, the Easycarseat costs about $90 and is easy to fold up when you need to take it with you.
Perfect for families who like to travel or switch cars regularly, the Easycarseat has met all applicable U.S. and European safety standards (according to the company). In case of an accident, the seat comes with a pressure release valve that prevents the seat from popping. If you’re still not convinced of its safety merits, you can watch a demo and a crash test video after the jump.
When it comes to your most precious cargo, you want to make sure your kids are well protected in case of those worst-case scenarios. Research has stated that using child safety seats can help reduce injuries and deaths in a crash, and new findings support the use of mandated booster seats.
