Boots has knocked £42 off the original price of £139.99, bringing it down to £97.99. In addition, as pointed out to us by jrwgas over at HUKD, you can get a further 10% off using the code RTPE66. So that’s £88.19 delivered and double advantage card points too.
The Britax First Class Plus is a combined infant carrier and a car seat. It is rearward facing (birth to 13kg) and forward facing (9 to 18kg). Other features include:
- Click & Safe Audible harness system
- Side impact protection with deep, softly padded side wings
- 5-Point safety harness with one pull adjustment
- Pitch Control system reduces forward movement in the event of an accident
- 5 recline positions
I’ve found the car seat easy to keep clean. It is also easy to get in and out of the car when in forward facing mode too. Which proved handy for me as I don’t drive, so could take son in friend’s cars easily. Now my only real quibble is the button or lever for adjusting the straps when you want to tighten or loosen them. This is for me a right pain in the behind, as I suffer from arthritis in my fingers and wrists and it does require more pressure to operate than I’ve noticed with other seats that I’ve used.
