Britax Accessories – Review and Giveaway!

To celebrate Eden’s birth and my ascent from postpartum hell, I have a fun review and GIVEAWAY for ya’ll!  Britax has generously given me three Britax Accessories to try out – the back seat mirror, ez-cling window shades and kick mats.  Without further ado, here’s what I think!

Britax Back Seat Mirror – Hands down, this is a must have for every new parent.  The first time we used this bad boy was 24 hours after I gave birth when we drive Eden to her first pediatrician’s appointment.  Newborn breathing patterns are so erratic it can make any parent paranoid.  This mirror allowed us to see if she was purple… or if she was still alive (because really that’s what we’re all thinking).  The mirror is large, much larger than our previous mirror we had from when G was a baby.  Not only is the mirror large, but it is very sturdy and thick – it gives you the impression that it is well made and will last through more than one child.  Also, the mirror is made to tilt so that you WILL see your baby in your rearview mirror.  It will even tilt so low as to see those itty bitty newborn babies.  The clips that attach to the headrest clip vertically and horizontally making it stay in position no matter how bumpy the car ride is.  Frankly, I’m in love with this mirror and I would be a nervous wreck driving around town without it.

Britax EZ-Cling Window Shades – These window shades are really handy – especially if your car is not tinted.  I have a Honda Element and my car is tinted very well, so I wasn’t sure that they would be helpful for me.  I was wrong!  When you have a baby, especially a newborn, it is super important to not let the sun (especially the Florida sun where I live) to get in their eyes.  These window shades can easily come on and off the windows making it simple to adjust the placement according to where baby needs it.  If you want to protect your baby’s eyes, these shades make it very easy!  These shades are very easy to get off – so easy that my three year old likes to take them down. :/  However, just like the mirror they are of sturdy quality – you can bend them just like a fold up sun shade you would put on your dash.  So far, the shades have withstood my three year old.

Britax Kick Mats – My three year old has taken this accessory quite literally – these are mats that he can kick.  Or maybe I never noticed him kicking our seats before?  Irregardless, these mats are long, thick and fit perfectly on the back of the two front seats of my Honda Element.  My car is so dirty from my boy, so I’m grateful that something is getting protected back there.  If I had to change one thing about these mats it would be to make the pockets that hold stuff big enough to hold books.  I have pockets on the back of my seats but with them covered up by the kick mats I have nowhere to put any books for my son to look at.  However, keeping him from damaging my seats is priority so we decided to sit the books next to his carseat.

Would you like to win these three Britax Accessories?  Of course you would!  To enter, please use the rafflecopter widget below to enter.  This giveaway ends on February 3rd.  I will contact the winner by email.  Good luck!

    The mirror and sunshades will be awesome for our next baby (the one that’s not actually in the works yet).
    I love our Britax carseats and these would be so useful!

    Courtney says

    That mirror looks awesome. We have one from when Cooper was a baby, and for some reason this time around I cannot get it adjusted right. It’s driving me crazy not to be able to see Georgia!

    We still have our baby mirror from Q in the car! He’s 3 and just turnedaaround last month. We definitely need a new one and since I’m totally a fan on the Britax marathon he’s been in the last two years , these would be a great addition!

    Emily says

    I would love the shades! We’re in the market for some, with the sun being so low on the horizon right now. I’m sick of trying to drape a blanket in just the right place. :)

    Rachel says

    I would LOVE the sunshade for baby Dyl! We swapped the baby carrier/ car seat combo out when he was just a couple months old for the Britax infant to toddler seat and he’s loved the change! He’s a big baby so I think he needed a more comfy ride ;-) With that change, we lost the little hooded cover and now the sun is constantly in his sensitive blue eyes :-( I’ve been wanting a sun shade for some time but have yet to get around to it as a busy new mom. This would certainly help check one more thing off the to do list!

    We could really use the kick mats. Plus the pockets are practical for all the “stuff” a toddler needs even when traveling.

    Ashley says

    Kick mats! My baby boy loves to kick so I know once he’s big enough to sit front facing my seats will be a target! These would be awesome!

      Oh, and mainly because I love the easy tilting with the mirror! I don’t have to readjust any straps to get it at the proper viewing angle.

    Amy Kelley says

    The mirror sounds like it would be a perfect fit to be able to keep an eye on both kids in the back or trying to figure out if the littlest is crying because he needs his pacifier or his brother is picking on him :)

    I always wonder if Britax is worth the premium cost, but then I read awesome product reviews like yours and reassurance is mine!

    The window clings!!! Even though our windows are very tinted, the sun still seems to creep through…and always when our little one is trying to nap. lol

    Arlene S. says

    I would love to win this, but not for myself! Instead, I want to gift this to my sister in law, Valerie, who is expecting her first little one in July! Im totally excited about being an Aunt, even though Im a mother of 2! She will love it!

    Clarisse says

    I’d love to win the Britax Kick Mats because my toddlers love playing at the park, and always get my car interior dirty!

  13. 35

    Kristy F says

    Kick mats for sure! This is one of my pet peeves when the babies in my life are kicking the new leather seats!!

    mandy Ruch says

    The shades… our toddler is always complaining about the sun in his eyes, but never wants to wear sun glasses

  15. 48

    Jennifer Crewell says

    well I am excited about everything because I have a two year old and 4 mo old… but maybe the sunshades!??!

  16. 61

    Jessica Lee says

    Would love any of them, but the window shades would be great! Sunshine in my baby’s eyes makes him unhappy lol!

  17. 64

    Caitlin Armstrong says

    Sunshades! With baby #2 on the way, DS will be moving nest to the window and need some major UV protection :)

  18. 68

    Lindsey S says

    I’d be so excited to win the Britax Back Seat Mirror! My little guy loves making silly faces! Thank you!

  19. 75

    Chris z says

    Definitely the kick mats…especially now that my 3 year old has started soccer- he kicks EVERYTHING all day long

  20. 76

    Jessica says

    I am MOST excited to win the window shades. We live in New Mexico and the sun is brutal at this high elevation and our LO is due in April.

  21. 78

    Cassandra Eastman says

    I’m most excited about the kick mats, my son kicks my husbands seat and it drives him nuts! I love the storage too!

  22. 79

    Candas says

    The kick mats! My 5 year old kicks majorly! Although I don’t have a mirror for the baby yet so that’s also pretty awesome.

  23. 80

    Kathleen Rafoth says

    My girls were just saying how they needed some sunshades :) and with a new one on the way the mirror would be great!

  24. 82

    Rebecca B. says

    I’d be very excited to win the mirror. I’ve been looking for a good mirror and this one fits the bill.

  25. 85

    Heather G says

    I have been wanting and needing the window clings. The ones I have are horrible and make it difficult to see out and don’t help block much sun.

  26. 86

    Katherine says

    The mirror! We’re expecting our third baby in a few weeks and we need a new car mirror. Our second child had apnea and that mirror was essential for my piece of mind. Unfortunately, we seem to have lost track of it and it would be so nice to win one instead of having to buy another!

  27. 89

    Christina Jackson says

    I’m most excited about the mirror. My husband and I are soon to be first time parents and so many of our friends have told us this is a must have!

    Amie Reed says

    The Kick mats seem like they would come in handy, I remember being little and my mother always telling me to quit kicking her seat….whoops!!

    Mary Lou Ricci says

    I’d love to get my hands on the Britax mirror! It would undoubtedly make car trips with the lil’ one so much easier. We’re big fans of Britax and their great accessories.

  30. 103

    Nicole Brown says

    The mirror would be nice for my baby girl since she was premature and is small for her age so she will be rear facing for quite a while. and the kick mats are a blessing since I live in Utah and get lots and lots of snow!!

  31. 108

    JOyce says

    You make all 3 products sound amazing. I would most want the kickmat – have you seen the back of my chairs?? THey are so dirty (I have light colored seats) they can’t even be washed off, i’ve tried. And yes, I agree, even though my windows are tinted, I still use a sunshade because the sun still come through right in the little ones eyes (we are in CA, so a lot like FL). And I couldn’t live without a mirror. I probably am looking back as often than I”m looking forward ;)

  32. 122

    Rebecca Mitchell says

    The kick mats! My DD is forever kicking the backs of the seats, and I am constantly washing the leather seats!

  33. 126

    says

    Honestly, the window shades. We have some cheap ones, and the window clip was busted on one when we got them, (my husband refused to exchange them. :/ ) They’re not that good and we could really use some new ones.

  34. 132

    Brittany McAnally says

    So I don’t have a mirror I actually didn’t even know they existed (Can you tell I’m a first time mommy LOL) and as for the shades I don’t have one of those either! I wish I did so please pick me!

  35. 136

    Debbie Peterson says

    I’d love any of the above!!! I have a 15 year old, a 2 year old and a 4 month old. I need all the help I can get!

      Sadly, this giveaway is over! But you should still get the mirror. Two years later I’m still using it and it’s going strong!
