Win-It Wednesday: Chicco KeyFit Strada Booster Seat!

by Tara Kuczykowski on September 8, 2010 · 1,061 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

Child Passenger Safety Week is September 19-25 this year, and it is a great time to check over your current safety seat situation and make sure your kids are secure and plan for what you will need as your children grow. With many parents not knowing the laws or the guidelines for when to move their children between rear-facing safety seats and convertible seats to booster seats and beyond, this is definitely a topic worth paying attention too and reading up on.

Research done by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has shown that risk of injury to children is reduced by 60% when a belt-positioning booster seat is used rather than seat belts alone. For instance, in my state of Ohio, as of last year, 1/6/09, the law states that children between 4 and 8 years of age need to be secured in a booster seat. This is to protect children in the case of an accident who are not yet as large as an adult, but who have outgrown their car seat.

A few features of the Chicco KeyFit Strada Booster Seat:

  • Easy to install and use.
  • Height and width are adjustable with one hand
  • Fabric cover is removable and machine washable
  • Converts to backless booster for children 40 lbs – 100 lbs
  • “EPS” Energy Absorbing Foam provides enhanced impact protection
  • Triple side protection: head, shoulders and lumbar
  • Deep side wings support child’s head and neck while napping

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a Chicco KeyFit Strada Booster Seat!

To enter, tell me how long a child needs to be in a booster seat in your state. Is it six years old, seven, eight? Do they need to be both an age and a weight before moving out of a booster seat?

Tennessee- * Children age 4 through 8 who are shorter than 4'9" must be secured in a belt-positioning booster seat that meets federal motor vehicle safety standards. The seat should be used in the backseat of the vehicle, if possible.
* Children who are older than age 8 but still shorter than 4'9" must also use a belt-positioning booster seat.
* Children age nine 9 through 12 who are 4'9" or taller must be secured in the vehicle's seat belt, in the back seat, if possible.
* Children who are under 9 years of age but who are 4'9" or taller must also use the vehicle's seat belt.

Here is Maryland they have to be in a booster seat until they're 8. There are height and weight limits that can get them out of it sooner, but I'm not sure what they are.
