Safety Refined 

Let's take a closer look at the incredible safety features the Willow S brings to the table. Britax has truly gone above and beyond to give you peace of mind when you’re on the road with your little one. 

  1. SafeCell Technology: Imagine having a shield that absorbs crash energy. That's exactly what SafeCell Technology does. It acts like a crumple zone, creating a buffer between your child and the impact. So, even in those unexpected moments, you can trust that your baby is cocooned in safety. 

  2. ReboundReduce: It's all about stability  that's where ReboundReduce comes in. This ingenious feature includes a stability bar that helps minimize movement during a crash. Plus, the anti-rebound carry handle adds an extra layer of protection. Together, they work to keep the seat securely in place, no matter what the road throws at you. 

  3. 5-Point Harness: Oh, those growth spurts! The 5-point harness is your ticket to worry-free adjustments. As your little one grows from a cuddly newborn to an inquisitive baby, you can customize the fit at the hips, shoulders, and between the legs. A tailor-made safety net that keeps up!  

Snug as a Bug 

Your little one is in for the coziest ride ever! We've got the scoop on the comfort features that'll make both of you smile! 

Plush seating provides a lap of luxury for your baby. The seat fabrics are as soft as a cloud, creating a snuggle-worthy space for those car journeys. We also can’t forget to mention the harness that gently hugs your little adventurer keeping them safe and comfy! 

Britax also knows your tot needs some extra TLC, which is where the infant insert steps in, providing just the right support for their delicate bodies. It's like a cozy nest within the car seat perfect for those early months. 

While the great outdoors await, the sun's rays don't stand a chance against the seat’s UPF 50+ canopy. A stylish shield against harmful UV rays, it gives your baby a shady retreat or simply some privacy when they want to catch some Z’s. Britax has also included a flip-down visor for any unexpected sun flares to protect baby’s eyes!

Outstanding Extras 

Finally, you’ll swoon over the extra features that make the Willow S an absolute jewel. This seat isn't just about safety and comfort; it's about making your life easier (and more stylish!).

Let's break it down:

  • Performance Fabrics: Say goodbye to the days of hand-washing and waiting forever for the cover to dry. These performance fabrics are washer and dryer-friendly, making cleanup a breeze. Plus, they're naturally flame-retardant, so you can breathe easy knowing there are no added chemicals near your precious one. 
  • SpaceSaver Design: Who doesn't need extra backseat space? The slim design of the Willow S makes for a small seat that doesn’t take up much room at all! You can even fit multiple seats across, allowing for cozy and safe spots for more than one tyke. 
  • Extra Base: Britax offers an Extra Alpine Base for added convenience. This comes in super handy for families with multiple cars, or for using in extended family and friends’ vehicles. 
  • Multiple Colour Options: Style is personal, Britax gets it. Choose from a variety of chic colour options to match your vibe and show off your unique style.
