My sweet boy in his Nuna Rava frowning because he was denied something he desired.
After downsizing from a Honda Odyssey to a Volvo XC70, our beloved Clek Foonf was no longer suitable for our family. The Clek Foonf is a well-designed seat that borders on being considered a work of modern art, but the massive frame did not allow our entire family to ride in comfort. Unwilling to part with our Foonf, I placed the seat behind the front passenger position. Unfortunately, whenever I happened to ride as a passenger in my vehicle I was unable to relax as the seat was positioned almost completely upright.
Either it was destiny or just a random accident, but I was rear ended two weeks ago and the at fault parties insurance was required to replace our seats. I arrived at Baby’s & Kid’s 1st with cash in hand to purchase two new Clek Foonfs, but left with two Nuna Rava convertible carseats. My emotional attachment to Clek was strong; I felt confident in their ability to protect my son in the event of an accident. Switching to a new manufacturer almost felt like a form of betrayal, but I am also confident in the quality and design of the Nuna Rava and feel as if he is just as safe as before.
Actually I am pleased with the change! We plan to rear face our 21 month old until he exceeds the limits of his seat. Unlike the Foonf which has only 3 recline positions, the Rava has 5 different recline positions for both forward and rear facing positions. Color coded belt paths ensure that busy moms and dads can quickly and easily install the Rava in a snap.
LIfe is what I make of it!
