## Tums 2 Tots Online, #CarseatFullstop and Volvo Car South Africa teamed up to give one of you an incredible top of the range Volvo child safety seat this September! You can find out who won here!

As you all know, Tums 2 Tots has taken a huge stand for children’s safety in cars. We host the #CarseatFullstop campaign right here on our site. We are passionate about spreading awareness about the critical importance of keeping our little one’s safe on the roads. The ONLY way they are safe is in a car child safety seat that is age appropriate and installed properly. You also know that we partnered up with the incomparable Volvo Car South Africa team. And that they are known everywhere as building the safest cars in the world.

What many of you won’t know, is that Volvo has been instrumental in the development and testing of child safety seats since the 1960s. The first car child safety seat was inspired by astronautsβ seats. They were rearward facing to distribute the forces of a collision over the larger surface area of the back and head. This protects the child’s vulnerable neck. Prof Bertil Aldman at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg developed the seat. Volvo was closely involved in project and the prototype was crash tested in a Volvo PV444 in 1964.

For more than 50 years, Volvo has worked closely with leading car seat developers in the design and crash testing of child safety seats. The result of years of intensive research and innovation is the current new generation Volvo child safety seats.

##### These are the 3 Volvo child safety seats our winner can choose from

**The Infant Child Safety Seat (****0β13 kg) – Valued at R4,012**

This seat is designed to provide comfort and protection for infants aged 0β1 year. The rear-facing infant seat features a deep shaped seat, luxurious new upholstery and high side panels. You can easily adjust the large carry handle with one hand and the headrest can be conveniently altered from the front.

**The Rearward-Facing Child Safety Seat (9kgs – 25kgs) – Valued at R5,871**

The Volvo rear-facing child seat provides optimal comfort and safety for children aged 9 months to approximately 6 years. It has improved legroom, added tilt and recline options and luxurious new upholstery. The compact design and low weight mean it is also easy to install, adjust and remove.

**The Booster Child Safety Seat (15kgs – 36kgs) – Valued at R4,012**

We strongly recommend your child stay in their 5-point harness, preferably rear-facing, until they exceed the height and weight limit on the seat. The Volvo child booster seat is designed for children aged 4β10 years, once they outgrow their child seat. The padded headrest, high side panels and shoulder protection ensure a safe journey, while the luxurious new upholstery guarantees a comfortable one. The ISOFIT system holds the seat securely in place, even when a child is not sitting in it.

Please pick me I’m desperate for a comfy rear facing car seat. My baby suffers so bad being rear facing with car sickness, he cries non stop in the car seat. He’s only 7.1kg so is no where near ready to be forward facing and I had to put him forward facing to stop the crying , it was very traumatizing. Maybe a more comfortable rear facing car seat would help. So desperate to have my baby safe in a car seat but yet comfortable.
