We wanted a new car seat as Miss 4 was outgrowing the current model. We had our criteria worked out and among those were safety, ongoing comfort for the longer term, ability to expand as she grows and value for money. After checking out a lot of possibilities we picked the Safe n Sound Encore 10™ booster from Britax.
Features and Benefits:
- Clearly shows maximum & minimum heights
- Expandable to suit from 4 years to approximately 10 years
- Supports good posture with expandable wings
- Extendable with 9 height adjustments
- Slideguard™ clip ensures safer travel
- Built in sash guide making it easy to correctly fit the seat belt
- Slim design makes fitting easy
- Tether Strap for car anchor point
We went with the Safe n Sound Encore 10™ booster from Britax because it is simply loaded with safety features and is designed to provide support, comfort and safety right through to approximately 10 years old.
Safety features of note for us included the guide for the seat belt which makes it really easy to fit the belt correctly – and difficult for children to move into the wrong position; the expandable seat which allows for growing; the tether strap to the car anchor point for extra stability; the adjustable height which again allows for growth which can happen slowly or in spurts; the clip which stops a little person from slipping under the seat belt in the event of a collision and of course, it’s very comfortable and looks really good. That’s very important when you’re four and a bit.
Along with all the safety features which are essentials and the long period of time we will be able to use the seat, which is a bonus, the seat comes with inbuilt speakers – a must when you are a budding singer, or at least music expert. The other extra of note is the detachable cup holder.
Yes; Britax Safe n Sound have covered everything with this one.
