We are big fans of Britax, and I absolutely love being part of the Mumbassador team for them. I enjoy sharing their amazing products with you and this time I'm sharing their Advansafix car seat.
The Advansafix is a group 1-2-3 car seat, which means its suitable from around 9 months until 12 years old (9-36kg). This in return means it good value for money and suitable for parents who are on a budget as there is no need to upgrade the seat. With this car seat there is also the added security of the 5-point harness which is suitable up to 25kg (normally 18kg), this allows you to keep your child within the harness for longer. Following on from this you can use the seat with the standard seat belt. There is also the added bonus of the ISOFIX, Top Tether and seat belt installation in all modes, in return limiting the movement of the seat. The headrest is adjustable to grow with your child, and for the early days, there is the seat recline option for those naps.
Top Tether is not something offered in all cars, so its best to check the Britax Fit Finder first to see if your car is suitable for this seat.
With this car seat, it was the first time we gave the ISOFIX a use, I was worried it would be complicated and not as secure. I was also worried we wouldn't install it correctly making it unsafe. However, there was nothing for us to be worried about. When we figured out how to install it, should have read the instructions, the installation indicators let us know it was in place securely and we even wobbled it around a lot to check. I feel comfortable knowing Jack is securely in place as well as being comfortable.
With the seat now in place and secure, it was time for Jack to try it out. He was rather excited about this. Jack seemed really comfortable when sitting within the seat, and we have been on plenty of journeys with the seat and had no problems.
Overall, I find this a fantastic car seat, it features all of the high standards which you can expect with Britax keeping your little ones safe. It comes with an RRP of £220, which may seem steep initially but when you think of how long the car seat can potentially last, up to 12 years, its a small price to pay. I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a new car seat.
Please Note: I received no financial compensation for this post, I received the car seat free of charge as part of the Britax Mumbassador program, all opinions and wordings are my own.
