Graco My Ride 65 with Safety Surround Review & #GIVEAWAY


                         Graco


In keeping up with Car Seat Safety Week I bring to you the Graco My Ride 65 with safety Surround. I will be searching for a car seat for Amelia shortly and was really intrigued by the Graco My Ride 65 with Safety Surround Side Impact Protection





Disclosure:
you are about to read a product review.
I received the product{s} reviewed free of charge in
exchange for my honest opinion.



Party of 5 was sent the Graco My Ride 65 with Safety Surround Side Impact Protection to review during Baby Safety Month.

              


We will be looking for a car seat for Amelia shortly and I was really impressed with the reviews I was reading on the Graco My Ride 65 seats.



Now, we can use the My Ride 65 now since the seat can be used from 4 - 65 pounds so this could eliminate the use of an infant seat.

See, how safe and secure Amelia looks



Here are some of the amazing features of the My Ride 65 with Safety Surround

Keeps baby in the rear-facing position up to 40 lbs 
Keeps your forward-facing child harnessed from 20-65 lbs
Safety Surround™ Side Impact Protection that truly grows with your child
 Meets BOTH Graco's Side Impact Testing and Europe's Side Impact standard* (*draft standard) 
Headrest featuring Safety Surround™ Protection moves & removes to grow with child 
SafeSeat Engineering - Engineered & Crash Tested to Meet or Exceed US Standard FMVS213: 
Side Impact Tested** (**In addition to meeting or exceeding all applicable US safety standards, 
the My Ride 65 has been side impact tested for occupant retention by the harness system) 
New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) – peak crash force approximately 2X Car Seat Standard 
Extreme Car Interior Temperatures 
EPS, energy absorbing foam for effective impact energy management 
LATCH equipped with an easy-to-read level indicator for hassle-free installation
 5-point, front-adjust harness helps you get baby in and out 
Dual cup holders keep drinks within your child’s reach 



A feature I really love is on the side of the seat. You will know when the seat is level and safe for use when the ball is entirely in the green! { THIS IS TO BE USED REAR FACING ONLY }


Often times I wondered if our seats were properly installed and with the level indicator on the side of the My Ride 65 you can now tell if the seat is level.

The 5 point harness is a standard and has a picture so you know EXACTLY where to place the chest clip


The insert for newborns is really nice and keeps baby in position where they should be. Amelia seemed to really like this feature. Most other inserts are just eh, but the Graco My Ride 65 is nice and cushy.




All of the installation directions are labeled on the sides of the seat so you can never forget them. There are different directions for installing a car seat Rear and Forward facing so you need to make sure you follow the right ones.




Here's my Pro's to the Graco My Ride 65 with Safety Surround:
Can be used from birth to 65lbs
Easy to install. I did it myself and had Hubs double check
Thick harness that wont twist easily. My girls have a habit of doing this. 
Nice plush cover
2 cup holders


What I dislike 

The seat itself is pretty large. There would be no getting to side by side. We have a mini van and there are 3 kids still in car seats so having a large seat takes up tons of room
This is a harness you must un thread. We all know what a pain that is. 

The cons are nothing that wouldn't stop me from purchasing the Graco My Ride 65 with Safety Surround
Here is a video on how to properly install the My Ride 65 REAR FACING with L:ATCH



and Forward Facing using LATCH

I love this is the only side impact protection properly positioned to protect your growing infant. Safety Surround Protection moves as your child grows from 4 to 65 lbs. How awesome!

My favorite feature is that it is LATCH equipped so it will be super easy to install!

Elizabeth M said...

My favorite feature would have to be the SafeSeat Engineering. There is nothing, in my opinion, better than knowing my child is being protected. As a mother, there are so many things that are out of my control but it is nice knowing there are products,such as this, out there that are designed to keep our little ones as safe as possible.

Alexia said...

I think one of the best Features of this car seat is the occupant retention by the harness system.

I love how you can use it in instead of an infant carrier! Especially with having to have a base in each car this would be great!
