Volvo child safety seat and #CarseatFullstop

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!

Volvo Child SeatsAs 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 astronauts’ 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

This seat is designed to provide comfort and protection for infants aged 0–1 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 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.

Volvo new generation booster seats

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 padded headrest, high side panels and shoulder protection ensure a safe journey, while the luxurious new upholstery guarantees a comfortable one.
