The Products We Own

I created Safely Travelled as I was always disappointed with the process of buying car seats and latterly cycle seats and helmets for my children. So I have some very real experience and I know how challenging it can be. And I want to change that, hence the business. 

Prior to all that though, my wife and I needed a car seat for our son. Like a lot of people we looked for a seat that could be attached to a pram base and so ended up with the Maxi-Cosi 2wayFix base and Pebble. Maxi-Cosi have tweaked their model line up since then (late 2014) but the concept of an infant carrier then a toddler seat used with an ISOFIX base remain a very popular choice even now.

Following that our son moved in to a rear facing Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl around about the time his sister was born (late 2016). At the time we had two cars, with a Maxi-Cosi base in each, but with another child we needed more seats. So we bought another Maxi-Cosi base and 2way pearl.

As our son became increasingly heavy my wife campaigned for a car seat that rotated and mean she could do a straight lift of him out of the car rather than twisting. As a result we bought a Nuna Rebl and then, when our daughter was ready to move out of her Pebble, we bought one for her too.

More recently, my son has now moved to a high backed booster seat and we chose the Cybex i-Solution S-Fix, which he finds very comfortable. My daughter has since moved from her Nuna in to a Maxi-Cosi MiloFix as it is a more compact design and better suits the car it is in.

So as you can see, I've had to purchase a good number of car seats in the last 6 years and the process has never met my expectations. Safely Travelled aims to improve that such that buying a car seat or cycle seat is a simple, efficient process. Let me know what you think.
