The Baby Products Association, together with leading car seat manufacturers, has just launched the most comprehensive guide of its kind – Child Car Seats – ending the confusion – advising parents, carers, retailers and suppliers of all aspects of buying and using child car seats, including differentiation between R44 and R129 Regulations.
The booklet, endorsed by manufacturers and suppliers, is available to DOWNLOAD HERE and is free to use as a comprehensive reference guide. All brands adopted this position and accepted that their trainers will train to this message, any deviation or confusion should be forwarded to the Association for guidance so that it can pick it up with the relevant brand.
It was intended to be printed and launched at Harrogate International Nursery Fair for retailers and suppliers to use as a resource in stores and provide to consumers as an aid when choosing and purchasing car seats. It will now be available in print when the show takes place – dates to be announced.
Robert Anslow, managing director of the Baby Products Association, explains, “The booklet reiterates the importance of consumers seeking professional advice from retailers when purchasing a child car seat and face-to-face demonstrations to ensure correct fitting. However, in these unprecedented times of Covid-19 lockdown, parents still need to purchase car seats for new babies and growing children, and we feel it is important that they have the best advice available to them, so are launching it online now. The printed version of the booklet will be available as a resource for retailers at a later date.”
