Brand Focus - RECARO Child Safety

Providing the very best for your children is a core value for most of our parenting. RECARO child safety aim to do this by designing products which are innovative, impress with the highest safety standards and made from quality materials. While still allowing parents to be creative, discover the world and explore their surroundings. The German company was founded in 1906, developing tyres for the earliest cars on the road. Gradually they became renowned for their car seat design for road vehicles, motorsport and aircrafts. In 1998, RECARO’s first child car seat was launched. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength in the child safety market. Their multi-award winning car seats have been joined by award winning lightweight strollers and prams. Direct4Baby are proud retailers of RECARO products, and many of us use RECARO seats for our own children. That’s how much we love the products! Here a few of our favourite products from RECARO:- RECARO Privia Evo – Group 0+, suitable from birth – 18kg Recaro Privia Evo Group 0+ car seat At just 3.7kg, this is one of the lightest car seats on the markets, ideal for lifting in and out of the car with a baby nestled inside! The Privia Evo fits into the RECARO Isofix base in the car with just one click, but it can also be installed using the car’s 3-point seat belt. Create a stylish travel system with the Privia and most of the leading prams, car seat adaptors. Privia was awarded test winner by Stiftung Warentest (Issue 6/2014, Group 0/0+) in combination with the RECARO fix base. The total rating of 1.3 ("Very Good") is the best test result that a child safety seat has ever received from the institution. A great value option too at only £135 for the Privia Evo and £110 for the IsoFix base. RECARO Zero. 1 i-Size – Group 0+/1 Suitable from birth to 4.5 years RECARO Zero.1 i-Size Group 0+/1 car seat The RECARO Zero.1 i-Size offers children comfort and safety from birth up to 105cm/18kg/approximately 4.5 years. Thanks to its clever 360° rotating function, the child seat can be switched from forward facing to rearward facing - one-handed. This swivel function is also a life saver when trying to place a wriggly baby or toddler into their seat. At the flip of a switch, the seat turns 90 degrees to face you, so you can easily put your child in and adjust the straps before clicking the seat safely into place. The thickly padded HERO straps make it almost impossible for a child to wriggle out, always a concern once a child gets a little older. Mumsnet named the RECARO Zero. 1 i-Size car seat as the best Group 0+/1 car seat on the market, citing its swivel, ultra padding and longer lifespan as the main reasons. RRP for the RECARO Zero. 1 i-Size is £399 RECARO Monza Nova IS – Group 1/2/3, suitable from 15 months – 12 year

Although they often divide opinion, a car seat with an impact shield is ideal for a toddler that can escape from a traditional 5 point harness. In the event of an impact, the shield 'cushions' the children’s forward motion spreading the forces across a wider area, reducing stresses on single parts of the torso. The RECARO Monza Nova IS has integrated RECARO Sound System with MP3 connection means that your child can enjoy their own audio without disturbing anybody else in the car. The integrated speakers encourage him or her to keep their head in the protective headrest area. It was awarded “best in class” by Stiftung Warentest, the German consumer organisation (issue 06/2013). Prices for the Monza Nova IS start at £199 RECARO Easylife Stroller RECARO Easylife Stroller in yellow
