A couple of weeks ago I chatted to you about our road trip to Gariep and how I was a little anxious about the long journey. The amazing people from SproutAbility, Recaro SA and #CarseatFullstop came to our rescue by ensuring a comfortable and safe ride for our girls thanks to RECARO Monza Nova Seatfix.
Our thoughts on the Recaro Monza Nova Seatfix Booster Seat
Who is RECARO?
A name that has become a benchmark, a synonym for quality, a symbol for value, a mark of trust, and a note for luxury in its purest form. RECARO has been the world’s most renowned seat maker for over 100 years.
The company’s mission statement –
“we want to be the best, in the development, production and distribution of premium, complete seat systems and specialists when it comes to ergonomics, styling, quality, safety and innovation”
SproutAbility gave us two Recaro Monza Nova Seatfix seats to use for the trip. What makes these seats so great, you ask? How much time do you have? ;)
‘RECARO Monza Nova Seatfix – safe driving pleasure in sporty design’
First thing to take note of is the fact that these seats can be used in vehicles with or without Isofix mounting points. I think that’s great especially if the seat is used in more than one car. Also, the seat isn’t as heavy as many others I’ve had to move around in the past. My back thanks you RECARO.
The RECARO Monza Nova Seatfix is suitable for children weighing 15 to 36 kgs and secures the child with the car’s own three-point belt.
If you are still unsure about why using only the seat belt to secure your child is not adequate and why a booster seat is a necessity, please listen up…
Seat belts are designed for adults! A properly used booster seat will position the seat belt in the correct places on a growing body. The seat belt should fit solid over the shoulder and chest and low on the hips. An ill-fitting seat belt can cut into your child’s throat, cause serious injuries to internal organs, damage the spine… I think you get the gist.
A big plus of the RECARO Monza Nova Seatfix Booster Seat is the fact that the position of the seat belt over the shoulder can be perfectly placed because of the adjustable headrest. One of our biggest issues with Cara’s old seat was the seat belt that dug into her neck. The Monza Nova headrest has 11 different adjustable positions.
One of the coolest features of this seat, is the RECARO Sound System. Yes, you read that right! The seat features integrated loudspeakers (nominal impedance 8 Ohm, nominal load capacity 0.25 W, peak load capacity 0.50 W.) in the headrest which means that your kid can enjoy music, games or a movie on the go. Seriously, it’s so awesome!
The headrest can also be adjusted in depth enabling a safe sleeping position as your child’s head won’t fall forward and leave the protective headrest area.
More fabulous features:
- The fixed armrest provides extra protection in the hip area in case of a side impact
- The special side impact protection system ASP (Advanced Side Protection)
- The unique, passive RECARO Air Circulation System ACS (for optimum air circulation)
- High-quality coverings: all covers are removable and suitable for machine wash on cold
I truly don’t have anything negative to say about this booster. Cara is so happy with her seat and she hasn’t complained about being strapped in once. Happy Cara = happy mom.
