Thanks to everyone who entered the Lena Loves… Britax Advocate 65 CS giveaway. With just over 2,000 entries, it looks like I’m not the only one who loves this revolutionary car seat! A quick recap of the features:
• A re-engineered lower center of gravity that allows the child to sit lower and creates stability in the event of a crash
• Integrated steel bars that strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
• Britax SafeCell Technology with SafeCells that are designed to compress in a crash. This significantly lowers the center of gravity and counteracts the forward rotation of the child seat, which normally propels the child toward the front seat.
• Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether with a two-point attachment and staged-release tether webbing to anchor the top of the car seat. This minimizes forward-rotation and reduces crash forces reaching the child.
As a reminder, up for grabs is a Britax Advocate 65 CS in the winner’s choice of fabric (value $399).
Drum roll please… the winner is Maggie S.! Congratulations!
Please send me an e-mail with your contact details so I may have the prize sent to you right away. Thanks again to everyone who participated, and to Britax!
p.s. Did you know that car seats have expiry dates? It’s true!
“All children’s car seats and booster cushions sold in Canada have an expiry or useful life date on them, even though this is not required by regulation. Manufacturers do this to inform current owners and prospective buyers of the potential risks of using car seats and booster cushions that may be missing important parts, labels or instructions and/or may have an unknown history which could lead to less than optimal safe performance when needed.”
