We’ve been big fans of the now-retired Kiddy CruiserFix Pro for quite some time so we were eager to see how the revamped Cruiser 3 stacks up to its predecessor.
The CruiserFix Pro is a belt positioning booster that includes a variety of features that I would not have thought to include on a booster — adjustable thigh support, adjustable sidewings, rigid lower anchors, and shock absorbers. Those features contribute to the awards that this seat has won.
We’re on our final day here in sunny Florida! Kidz in Motion’s child passenger safety conference is a great place for CPS technicians, instructors, and safety professionals from across the industry to meet, encourage each other, and to learn about new trends or techniques.
Booster seats serve one primary purpose: to place the car’s seat belt over 3 strong points of a child’s body. A properly fitting booster will sit low over the hips and across the center of the shoulder to spread the possible force from a crash over these strong areas.
This year’s Child Passenger Safety week is focusing on #mywhy. What does that mean, exactly? It’s sharing your reason for your passion for child passenger safety: your WHY. By using #mywhy, caregivers can pledge their commitment to proper car seat usage and explain why that’s important to them personally.
Kiddy USA generously offered us a Kiddy World Plus for review, and I was eager to try one. Unlike any other child restraint in the US, this seat has a protection shield instead of a 5-point harness. This type of restraint is new to the US, but is fairly common in Europe, where restraints similar to this one are seen more frequently.
