It can happen in only a split second. Your minivan is heading down the highway, the kids are happily watching a Disney DVD, you are relishing a rare moment of peace, and then BAM- another car comes out of nowhere and slams into the side of your car. It is a nightmarish moment that us parents pray never happens, but two years ago for Trekaroo’s CEO, Liling Pang, that moment became a reality.
Why are car seats so important to families that travel? Because automobiles play such an integral part in how we reach a destination. Even when families choose to fly to their favorite vacation spot, they will more than likely need to ride in a car to reach the airport. Since our children are our most precious cargo, it is important that we provide them with enough protection to survive a car accident without injury. Many car seats offer great protection from front and rear collisions but the fact is, most auto accidents that result in fatality for children are due to side impact collisions. The best way to protect a child from side impact crashes is to put them in the middle seat, but for those of us with more than one child and only one middle seat, we need another way to protect our children. The Britax Boulevard car seat with its superior side impact cushions provides that extra protection so many of us have been looking for.
It is no secret that Britax has a reputation for high quality and safety. And as Liling found out, the Britax Boulevard definitely lives up to that reputation. Here is her quick list of pros and cons regarding the car seat:
- Very comfortable
- Well made with durable fabrics
- Easy to install and adjust straps and side impact cushions
- Easy to clean
- Top safety rating
- Heavy and bulky
- Cupholder sold seperately
I highly encourage you to read her full review of the Britax Boulevard car seat. The Boulevard could very well be the car seat you have been looking for.
