The newest addition to the Britax family is the Safe-n-Sound Maxi Rider AHR Easy Adjust car seat. This joins a collection of high quality, safety conscious products and has some extra special “parent-friendly” features that will make your life that little bit easier.
The first key point is that this seat will grow with your child – it is a purchase that will take them from 6 months to approximately 8 years old, making it a car seat and booster seat in one.
Re-positioning the shoulder straps is normally a job that can be awkward and time consuming as you have to take the seat out, re-thread the straps and then re-install. This Maxi Rider takes the hassle out of this process, as the “Easy Adjust” in the name suggests – this is actually easy to adjust!
The headrest can be moved up or down automatically while the seat is still fitted in the backseat, so you always have the right shoulder strap height for your child. Now that is clever!!
With all that cushioning you may be concerned about the width of the Maxi Rider AHR, but in fact it is 30mm slimmer than the previous Maxi Rider AHR without sacrificing on any of the comfort or safety features (the internal width is the same). This new design may just give you the extra room you need to fit multiple seats in the back! This is also 80mm higher to cater to taller children.
If that is not enough cool new features for you, here is something that will make you smile. For all those times you have inwardly cursed because you put the baby in the seat and then realised they are sitting on the buckle and you have to try again – there is now an EZ buckle system which pushes the buckle forward when not in use. Perfect, especially when you need to transfer a sleeping toddler from from the stroller to the car with minimum disruption!
Parents can also be assured the Safe-n-Sound Maxi Rider AHR Easy Adjust has a high standard of safety. The seat comes with deep side wings with additional padding, and even by touching this you can tell it is strong and durable.
There are five colours available so you can match the interior of your car, or add a pop of colour with the red. Choose from garnet, onyx, bluestone, slate grey (pictured) and caramel.
With less than 2 weeks until Christmas, this would make an excellent and practical gift idea for new parents. The RRP is $529.00 and when you think about all the features, comfort and safety – and the fact this will last you 8 years (more if you have multiple kiddies), it is definitely something worth investing in!
