1. Is it easy to use and safe? What does this actually mean?

a. Easy to put / remove the child from the chair.

b. Rugged frame.

c. One-hand workable tray.

d. Wheels for better travel and stops on the back, so that no unwanted accidents happen.

e. Compact folding, thus occupying as little space as possible when stored or when traveling.

f. Belt fastening system in 3 or 5 safety points.

g. According to the European regulations in force.

b. It should be roomy and well padded for maximum comfort.
