What’s the deal with this car seat?
I’m a kid and my parents love my car seat.
They bought it because it has lots of features and is very comfortable to ride.
It’s not as big as my regular seat and I don’t need it all the time.
But it’s a very comfortable seat.
How do I find out more?
Parents in Australia and New Zealand should contact a health authority to find out if they’re eligible for the seat.
The car seat manufacturers and car manufacturers’ trade bodies in the United States and Europe could also help.
But they won’t tell you if they offer any safety-related information.
What’s a car seat for?
If you’re planning to drive your kids on public transport, consider buying a carseat.
This helps them stay comfortable in cars and other vehicles.
If you don’t have kids, you can buy a child seat.
Some parents buy their own seat, but some choose to buy a seat that’s fitted to a car, motorcycle or other vehicle.
You can also choose to ride in a child car seat on the bus or train.
