The newly updated BRITAX G3 convertible car seats have become one of the top items on every new parents must have list and baby registry. BRITAX has always been one of the brands parents can rely on for advanced safety technologies, and the newly designed G3 convertible car seats are no exception.
Not only are there five different models that provide safety features which are visible and clearly labeled, but select models also offer a newly introduced safety technology and some even provided added convenience features.
Accidents can come from any angle, so BRITAX makes sure that they design seats with innovative safety technologies so that they can provide your child with 360 degrees of protection. Take the BRITAX Frontier 85 for instance, not only is the seat designed well to protect from injuries but the seat also comes with SecureGuard, which works with your vehicles own seat-belt system when you’re using the seat in booster mode. This helps prevent your child from sliding under the lap-belt in a collision and helps prevent abdominal injury.
You’ll find comfort embedded in the BRITAX Frontier 85 as well as safety. The seat is lined with high density comfort foam, and covered with a plush premium cover set. You’ll also find the comfort foam on the armrests, and there’s also an integrated cup holder. You have the choice of 5 different fabric options which are all removable for washing.
The Britax Frontier 85 recently received a “best bet” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The seat accommodates children in harness mode up to 85 pounds, and has 10 five point harness height positions up to 20” with three buckle positions. Once your child has outgrown the harness, you can convert the seat to a high back booster which will hold children up to 120 pounds and 5’5” tall.
The Britax Frontier 85 also features an easy to adjust no rethread five point harness, HUGS system that provides forward movement resistance in a crash, energy absorbing Versa-Tether, True Side Impact Protection that is designed to keep the head and spine in line, with deep side walls lined with EPP energy absorbing foam.

Back-to-school time is here, and gone will be the afternoons of relaxing at home and eating home-cooked lunches. But, just because your kids have to trade in their place-mat for a brown bag or lunchbox, doesn’t mean they can’t still eat like the princes and princesses they are. So this year, toss the PB&J aside (although we do love a good peanut butter sandwich) and prepare just as easy and delicious meals for dinner that make mouth-watering meals for your child’s next days’ lunch, without any need to re-heat!

I have two girls, which means dolls, cute little miniature things and animals are a big deal in my house, so when I received the Polly Pocket Hangout House Play-set and Stick N Play Room Assortment to review, you can imagine how big my girls eyes lit up!
If you don’t know what Polly Pocket is, they are miniature dolls and play-sets that are brightly colored and encourage imagination play. My girls have played for hours on end with these adorable play-sets, but my big worry was that with all the small pieces, they’d loose them and be all over the house for me to step on. So far though, it hasn’t happened!
The sets both came with a cute Polly Pocket doll, and all the small pieces come with suction cups so you can decorate how you want, and the pieces don’t fall over while you’re playing, which I thought was a great idea! Mattel has made great changes to Polly Pocket since I’ve last seen them, even the doll itself is a big bigger, which makes it easier to play with.
Check out the Polly Pocket website (as well as the online games and secret world and video you can check out with your kids) for more information on all of the Polly Pocket play-sets and accessories and where you can purchase them for your daughter.
I’m sure we’ll find Polly Pocket on the girls Christmas list this year!
