Introducing the Foonf! from Clek

Last week we got to try out the "Rolls Royce" of all car seat manufactured in North America:  The Foonf from Clek.

There is so many details and features which make the Foonf so much better and safer then most car seats. I will list some important points but to get the full spectrum you need to check out their website (or view the video below for a good overall understanding).

First of all don't rush to change from rear-facing to forward-facing. In a new policy statement published in the April 2011 issue of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Pediatrics now advises parents to keep toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age two. Check out this good read from parenting.com

Clek recommendations with the Foonf is 14-50 lbs., 25-43”, able to sit upright alone, for rear-facing and 20-65 lbs., 30-49”; age 1 minimum, age 2+ recommended for forward-facing.

Foonf Overview:
- Extended Rear-Facing Installation
Foonf was designed to international best practices for extended rear-facing use, which is to accommodate children in a rear-facing installation until their 4th birthday.

- Rigid Sub-Structure
Foonf is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure.

- Energy-absorbing foam-lined Headrest connected to frame using steel rods provides maximum head protection in a side-impact collision. Also Energy-Absorbing Foam Layers, on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.

- Anti-Rebound Bar
In Rear-Facing mode, Foonf’s Anti-Rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat, helping protect your child’s head from impact in the case of a collision.

- The Revolutionary REACT™ Safety System
Reducing the forces transmitted to your forward-facing child in a frontal collision.

- Rigid-LATCH Forward-Facing Installation

- Improved Rear-Facing Installation
Unique design improves Rear-Facing installation with an easy-access belt path, small footprint and
- Smooth Recline for comfort

- Crypton® Super Fabric, provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odor-causing bacteria.

What we think! 
The installation process is describe as easy but, I was glad someone installed for me - did not look so easy! You can install it via seatbelt , via latch or both. What's great, with every foonf purchase you may call the Clek UAE team and schedule a FREE Installation. The technician will make sure the seat is properly installed if you require. Or you can watch the online videos.

- The Foonf looks like the most advanced convertible carseats on the market, with unique, high-tech safety features and exceptional rear-facing weight and height limits. The Latch system is definatelly the safest installation. Buying the Foonf, you know you are getting your money worth, and that's good because it's a bit pricey but so worth it. 

- Luella was not so happy at first, we just moved her out of her car seat last week into using the build-in car booster seat from our new XC60 Volvo (as per the height and weight indications). She obviously felt like she was regressing to "small kid". Quickly the Foonf, became attractive to her as well. Comfort, hight, recline… and it looks good!

- Overall, Foonf offer comfort, safety, convenience and style. It can call o-exist without sacrifice.
