Earlier this year I had a chance to visit the US Headquarters of Britax, and one of the most memorable parts of the trip was a crash test safety demo, I had seen something similar on a news documentary program, but actually seeing it up close and personal and literally 'feeling' the impact in my gut was one of the most impactful parts of my trip. Even though it was a crash test family of 'dummies', a collective gasp and many 'Ay Dios!' or 'Ay Bendito's' ('Oh my God! and Poor Thing! respectively) could be heard by the bloggers watching that crash test demo. I don't think any of us, myself especially will ever forget it.
It made me think of child safety in a whole new way and the factory tour on the whole also opened up my eyes on what safety feaures to look for when it comes to infant carseats as well as strollers. They really aren't all created equal, in terms of more than just style, but safety features and ease of use. (I know the cliche gets annoying sometimes, but you really do get what you pay for!)
I will admit my sister butterflies did a great deal of research for my niece and nephew butterflies based on what was available to them at the time, but their consistent complaints about the systems they used was that the systems didn't necessarily grow with the child, and that as a result travel had it hassles (Me being the youngest butterfly in the family I get the benefits of their trial and error coupled with my own research!). Spending much of my professional career traveling, I witness families fumbling with their strollers at airport TSA Security Checkpoints all the time and of course upon boarding an airplane where they have tons of folks behind them while we patiently wait for them to fold their stroller and get situated.
There has to be a better way!
