Thule Child Bike Seat – Safe, Secure and Comfort

Thule introduces a Child Bike Seat with smart and intuitive installation, increased child safety & comfort and easy to use for adult as part of the new Thule Active with Kids category”

I would love to go on my bike in summer and so as my kids. And a bike seat like this means a family time together.

Bringing the kids along for a bike ride just got easier with the introduction of the new Thule RideAlong Child Bike Seat. The seat is probably the easiest to install in the market, increased comfort gives a safer ride for the kid and is the most convenient and easy Child Bike Seat to use for the parent.

The Thule RideAlong is a part of Thule’s new Active with Kids category.

The Thule RideAlong´s quick release bracket is the easiest and quickest bracket to install on a bike on the market. This is thanks to the bracket being mounted with bolts from the front where there is plenty of room to use an ‘Allen key’. Most brackets from other child bike seats are mounted with bolts from the rear where there is limited space. When the bracket is mounted the seat clicks into position and is ready to be used in seconds.

The Thule RideAlong is the only seat on the market offering a padded harness with no sharp edges against the child’s neck. This in combination with the soft, premium padding and the easy adjustment possibilities of the harness height and foot rests ensure the child sits comfortably in the seat and ultimately for a safer experience.

It is common to lean the bike against a wall when placing the child in a bike seat. The Thule RideAlong offers, as the only child bike seat on the market, integrated protection wings that safeguard the child’s hands. The protection wings create a distance between the wall and the child’s hand reducing the risk of the child´s hand getting squeezed.

Last, but not least, the Thule RideAlong is the most convenient and easy seat to use for the parent. Examples of this is that all adjustments of the seat are simple one hand operations, the padding and harness are easy to remove and machine washable, and the quick release bracket is lockable for theft protection.

Is my Child in safe hands when she is using my laptop!

Well!  We may all need to admit technology has taken over us and life without Tech seems empty most of the times – may be all the times.  Where ever I go I have a Tech device with me;  atleast my iPhone and I need to admit, Several times it is been used by my children including my 19 months old little one.

DD is so obsessed with Laptop, If not laptop then it is the iPhone and not to forget …. if it is not the iPhone, then it is the TV. Sometimes, To make her sit half an hour for the home work, I need to Bribe her with the permission to access any of the above for the same amount of time she was asked to spend on her home work and reading. 😦

If there is a voting for Technology Over life, I wouldn’t even spend time to read the other options but only “Yes, Indeed, I can not imagine a life without my Hi-Tech devices”

AND – definitely, My iPhone and Laptop are used by my children and I make sure I always supervise them when they are with it.  May be, I have a little worry about my 19 months old but I am extremely careful when it comes to my 7 Year old DD. All my devices are password protected, Not only to make it safe in the event of theft or when it go missing, BUT also to make my little one’s days safer from accessing the contents she doesn’t have to.  When I noticed that She could go and search what she wants On youtube and Google, I made a separate account for her making sure it is registered as Under 16. Other than Playing games on the devices, She mostly use them for educational purpose, So I couldn’t stop her from using them.

But, I need to admit, I am a Mum for two and sometimes have to take my Eyes off the 7 Year old and pay my attention to my 19 months old.  Every moment of that period goes as a big thunder wave and I always wished for something better than my own devices that could leave DD in safe hands.

And thanks to the researchers  – one recent study of Office of Fair Trading investigation into ‘in-app purchasing’ lead the LeapFrog team to research on child safety devices and revealed that 6 in 10 parents give their children adult devices to play with.

Almost half (43 per cent) of respondents say they recognise the educational value of technology in children’s lives, but with children often just a click away from chargeable or inappropriate content, more than a quarter of those parents (26 per cent) admit they do not always have the time to supervise their child when using their technology and will not always be in the same room as they play with devices. The research includes key stats including the number of children aware of passwords on their parents devices.

I Do remember, last week while I was accessing my Twitter, DD just peeped in to ask ” What is your password mama”. May be she though mum is deep into twitter and just reveal the password by accident. BUT I am a MUM… She will know the value of it when she grows older I know, Just like How I did.

So, What’s the solution to all these problems that parents are facing in this modern life!?

There is someone to rescue us. Leap frog has come up with LeapPad Ultra, the ultimate learning tablet for kids.  It is also available in Pink to make it more attractive to girls.
