So last year Serenity was so excited that she was finally old enough to move out of her booster seat. But every time I turned around I was catching her moving her seat belt around her. It wasn’t that it didn’t fit her right, she just didn’t like it. And without the booster, she had a bit more freedom to move it around. It drove me crazy. I could not afford to have it not belted the correct way, but it broke my heart the way she would cry at the thought of being put back in a booster seat. She is much smaller than most of her friends and many of them were out of a booster seat long before she was.
So when she was given the chance to try out the Airheart SeatPet, I knew we had a winner. She was so excited about it, I had a feeling there would no longer be a problem with her trying to move the seat belt behind her.
The SeatPet is like a stuffed animal she can hold and snuggle in the car, that stays in place while she plays. It also has a ton of hiding places for all of her goodies. A total bonus for a pack rat like Serenity. This kid always has a ton of things in the car with her, and her SeatPet has so many pocket to hold all of her gadgets. There are 3 pockets down the front and 2 zippered pockets.
Besides the benefit of Serenity keeping the belt in place, the SeatPets also works as a pillow when the child dozes off. How many times have you looked into the rear view mirror and seen your little one’s head in that awful position. You just know that they have to be uncomfortable and think of the crick they are going to get. With the SeatPet, it is like having a sweet pillow right there to hold and lay on.
So far Serenity has not fallen asleep in the car with hers, but she has held it awfully tight every single time she gets in the car.
I must say, Serenity loves her SeatPet very much. The novelty of it has not worn off even after using it for the past month. Funny story: We were leaving cheerleading camp and another cheerleader saw Serenity getting into the van and getting buckled as I talked to the girl’s mom. The girl saw the SeatPet and started flipping out, tugging her mom. “Look, Mom, Look, Mom, she has a SeatPet, a SeatPet.” Apparently, these are very popular with kids. It is not just my girls who think they rock. And Willow is begging for one as soon as she is old enough.
I love that the Seat Pet is easy to attach and remove from the seat. It is held in place with 3 velcro straps that even Serenity can easily secure or remove herself. The SeatPets, recommended for ages 4 and up, comes in 3 varieties, Whish, Awty (Are We There Yet) and Airheart and retails for $19.99
