We spend so much time on the go, therefore car safety is a tremendous portion of our everyday lives. So when you’re looking for a child seat, why not look to the company that’s designed seats for the world’s most prestigious automobiles and race cars for greater than 100 years? I’d like to introduce you to RECARO, a company that’s an internationally recognized leader in seating safety, ergonomics, comfort and style.
RECARO is part of the Keiper Recaro Group, which has earned itself a worldwide reputation for automobile and aircraft “mobile seat solutions”
Child Safety Systems
As moms and grandmothers, there’s one thing we won’t compromise on and that’s our child’s or grandchild’s safety. Plainly purchasing a baby or child car seat is an extremely important purchase, you clearly need to be informed prior to buying the car seat in order to understand what key safety features need to be considered.
Since I’m a grandmom of a 2-year-old grandson and 4-year-old granddaughter, my car has two permanent child car seats in the back of my Chevy Impala. With two daughters who are four years apart, it seems as if I’ve always been traveling with baby car seats!
Not too long ago when at the grocery store, I parked next to a Baby Boomer about my age that also had two child car seats in her SUV. As we were getting out of our cars and looked at each other, we struck up a conversation about our grandkids and how we often are “on call” as granny daycare!
I recently had the opportunity to review the RECARO award-winning ProRIDE car seat.
When designing their ProSERIES child seats, RECARO simply took everything they know about seating safety and minimized it. The ProSERIES collection incorporates not only comfort, but safety features as well such as premium Side Impact Protection, EPS energy absorbing foam and RECARO’s own seat structure design so to provide a safe, stylish and comfortable ride for your little one.
My charming son-in-law installed this beauty in about 20 minutes. Right now, ‘Lil Moomette (age 4, and 35 pounds) is using it. The convertible child restraint system can be used for children from 5 to 70 lbs.
- Side Impact Protection
- EasyAdjust Head Restraint
- SoftTouch Head Restraint
- QuickPull Front Adjust Harness
- TrueLock Belt Lock-Off
- CoolMesh Air Ventilation
It’s a good idea to read your car’s owners manual as well and any manuals with the car safety seat. RECARO safety manuals are available online, which is nice in the event you misplace yours.
Other Premium Features
- Premium push button LATCH system
- Built-in LATCH storage system
- Convenient harness storage pockets
- Soft Harness Pads
- Premium rear-facing recline lever
- Universal Top Tether system
Dimensions: 190 w x 27 to 29 h x 11 D
RECARO offers a Product Registry so that in the event of a recall, they can reach you only if the company has your name and address, so it’s important to fill in the registration form to be on their recall list.
Whether you’re on a road trip traveling over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house, or on a trip cross-country to Disney with preschoolers, the ProRIDE is certified for use in aircraft as well, both rear-facing and forward-facing.
‘Lil Moomete said she enjoys riding in it because she can see better and sits up “higher” !
The RECARO ProRIDE is a well-constructed child car seat with plenty of safety features and will certainly be able to be passed down from child to child. Put this baby on your gift list for any baby showers, new mom gifts, or yes, even a gift for Grandmom or Grandpa daycare!
