Britax Roundabout 55 Car Seat Review & Giveaway -- ENDED



If you have been reading my blog, you probably already know that our favorite car seats are made by Britax. We went through a number of car seats with DD. After trying several of them when she was an infant and a young toddler, we finally made the decision to purchase Britax and that was the beginning of our love affair with company. With baby G, we learned from our past mistakes and he came home from the hospital in a Britax Chaperone infant car seat.

The Britax Chaperone infant car seat is only for infants up on 30 lbs. Baby G, at 2 months old, is already at 15 lbs. It appears that he will be outgrowing his car seat in no time. As we prepare ourselves for the different stages of his development, we are also getting the the his next car seat ready for him.

The company has generously sent us a ROUNDABOUT 55 car seat to review. First of all, like all car seats Britax offers, the Roundabout 55 comes in a variety of different fabric choices. If you like the traditional plain look, you could purchase one in black or gray. Since this car seat is for baby G, we want it something boyish but still fun, so we ended up getting the smoky pearl print to review.








If you already own a Britax car seat, then you are probably pretty familiar with the awesome features that their car seats have. The Roundabout 55 car seat comes with side impact protection which distributes crash forces, contains your child's head, neck and body, and shields him/her from vehicle intrusion. My children are the most precious cargo that I will ever have in my mini van, so it is very important to me that the car seats and booster seats they use will protect them if there is ever an accident.

Another thing I love about Britax car seats is their latch system, also known as the Premium Lower LATCH Connectors. If you ever have to struggle putting in and taking out car seats from your vehicle, then you will understand why I love the latch system. With DD's old infant car seat, it did not come with a latch system. Every time we had to move it, it was at least a 20 minutes long ordeal. Most of the time, after unbuckling it from one car I had a hard time installing it properly in another car. More often than not, I was not sure if it was as secure as it could be. When we got the Britax car seat, I used the latch system on it and I was in love. With the latch system, it was easy to install and remove car seats. After putting DD's car seat in my mini van, I tried to move it (to test out how secure it is) and it did not budge at all. I knew then that I could never use another car seat that did not come with a latch system.

You could use this car seat in a rear facing as well as in the forward facing position. For the rear facing position, it could hold a child up to 40 lbs. For the forward facing, it could hold a child up to 55 lbs. This car seat is certified for Aircraft Travel. Although this might not be important to some people, but you plan to travel, this is a very important feature to have. We plan on visiting my family in Taiwan later this year, so we will be taking the Roundabout car seat on the plane with us. It is good to know that baby G will be able to lay in his car seat comfortably during our flight. Furthermore, once we get to Taiwan, we will not have to worry about locating a car seat because we will have his car seat with our during our stay there.

We tested out the car seat with DD and it has her stamp of approval. We are glad to know that when baby G outgrows his infant car seat, he will have another great car seat to use. Britax makes car seats that we trust and use daily and we would not have it any other way.

To buy your own Roundabout 55 or to check out other car seats offered by the company, please visit the Britax website.

Many thanks to Britax. The company has generously offered 1 Roundabout 55 car seat as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please). The car seat retails for $199.99.
