This is a review of the Trunki Snoozihedz Childrens Seat Belt Cover, can seat belt covers really be made child friendly and fun?
Well my question is instantly answered as soon as I saw these, they are definitely fun! There are four different designs Lion, Monkey, Dino and Penguin. Each animal is well made with a soft plush material which is fluffy as well as felt detail trimming and neat stitching, overall a great childrens seat belt.
To attach you Trunki seat belt cover there is a velcro fastener, this wraps around your seat belt or the childs seat belt. When no one is sat in the car seat, it is a fairly loose fitting around the seat belt, but as soon as you strap in, it will stay exactly where you want it. The pressure of the belt pulled against your childs neck and body will keep it in place happily.
Because of it’s comfort, it can be used as a small pillow and resting your head on it whilst you sleep is a nice feeling.
What is also quite handy about this seat belt cover is there is an intergrated pocket , to keep teddy or a favourite travel toy in. At the top of the cover is an opening for headphones so your child can listen to music or a story via a mp3/portable device in the intergrated pocket while they travel.
The Trunki seat belt cover is also machine washable which helps if there are any spillages or accidents while in the car. Due to the size of the Trunki seat belt cover it would suit children that are transitioning in between a child car seat to only using a seat belt, so great for a child that is growing as they can use it in both situations. What is great about it is if your child does not love it you haven’t wasted lots of money. However if they do love it, its portable can be used from vehicle to vehicle or even in a travel buggy.
