Car Seats are Not All Created Equal; Kiddy USA Cruiserfix Pro Leads the Way!

Did you know that 3 out of 4 car seats are improperly installed? It’s something I’ve written about and continue to share because I believe car seats really do keep children safe. My children are older and still, we use a car seat. The Divine Miss M has just transitioned to a Kiddy USA CruiserFix Pro and we’re not looking back. It’s like a Cadillac of luxury.
kiddieUSA cruiserfix proI want my children to be safe–always and in the car there are a lot of variables as I can’t always predict what another driver is going to do or even where they will come from so I rely on car seats.
The Kiddy USA Cruiserfix Pro offers many great safety features.
Superior Side Impact Protection (SIP):

Anyone with kiddos knows shoulders are a weak spot on children. They hold up the bodies heaviest part, the head. Kiddy USA knows this and uses a high-performance material in the head and shoulder areas. It is designed and shaped specifically to extend the best protection in the event of an accident.

I love that as you raise the head rest to fit your child, the shoulders extend automatically for a perfect fit.

The car seat also offers a Kiddy Shock Absorber (KSA): For the first time, a children’s car seat has taken proven ‘crumple zone’ technology from the car industry to make an even safer car seat for older children. The Kiddy Shock Absorber is situated on both sides of the seat shell. The vehicle seatbelt rests against the KSA when installed properly. In the event of a collision, the force of impact is transferred into the KSA and deforms the special crumple zone materials inside. No other car seat manufacturer offers this fantastic new feature which is patented by kiddy.

The Kiddy K-Fix Connectors provide an easy connection to the vehicle’s LATCH system located between the seat back and seat cushion. Including a detailed list of vehicle types.

NEW Integrated Diagonal Belt Guide – Kiddy’s new lever technique for its Integrated Diagonal Belt Guide allows the vehicle seatbelt to be positioned properly across your child’s chest and collarbone. The seatbelt position is critical to your child’s safety.
Handy Retraction Mechanism – The retraction mechanism let you hide the Kiddy K-fix Connectors easily in case of use a vehicle without latch.

Easy Adjustment – Kiddy’s unique adjustment mechanism design allows for the height and width of the seat to be altered with just one squeeze off a hand. It is just as easy for Miss M as it is for me. This seat is versatile for children of all sizes. I appreciate that she is safe and comfortable whether we’re running a short errand, or driving for hours.
If you’ve followed Mommy’s Memorandum for long you know Miss M heats up something terrible. With the Kiddy USA Cruiserfix Pro, I don’t have to worry about her getting sticky or sweaty in the heat thanks to the Breathable Thermotex Fabric. It is positioned to specific areas of the seat to increase circulation and ensure a comfortable seating environment.
There’s also Comfortable Armrests – The Kiddy World Plus armrest design contours the body in its natural shape to help make for a more enjoyable journey.
And because sometimes we eat in the car and accidents happen, I love the Durable Cover – The covers can be easily removed and machine washed at 30 degrees Celsius on delicate. Talk about relief!
The manual is stored in the back of the car-seat, making it easy to reference. We used it for our installation, which went smoothly.
KiddyUSA Cruiserfix PRO leg extension

One of the first things Miss M commented on was that her legs no longer fall asleep on the longer rides. In fact, Cruiserfix Pro is the only manufacturer that offers a leg extension in the car seat for added comfort and safety. They are also the ONLY car seat manufacturer to carry an Aktion Gesunder Rucken (AGR) Recommendation. This campaign for healthier backs offers a seal of approval award on products that have had their back-friendly construction tested by an independent review panel of medical and scientific experts.

    We have been using two different Kiddy seats for our fella here in Europe for the last 18 months (he is now 3 and the range of seats available here is more extensive) and we absolutely love these seats. They provide excellent side impact protection, are easy for a nice in car snooze, they are mega easy to install and utilise the impact shields and he seems so very comfortable. I would really recommend this seat. (and I am in no way sponsored by Kiddy) 😉

    Aren’t kids safest in the backseat? Is this car sear rated to prevent air bags from suffocating your child? Just curious i have never seen a child placed in the front seat of a car in a car seat?

      They are, however, my car is actually a Chevy s10 pickup and there is NO backseat and I have the airbag turned off. Thanks for bringing up this great point.

    I’m curious; how tall is your daughter? She looks comfortable enough in her seat, and it’s good that her legs are not numb, but this is not an easily tried out booster and my kids are not easily impressed. They are in car seats well past when typical kids are out of them.

    • says

      She is 53.75″ tall. She has very long legs (I call her “grasshopper”). She loves this seat so much. It is very comfortable for her and the adjustable leg extension allows added comfort. She is 9 and has no issue being in THIS car seat!
