The Silver Cross Dream car seat and Dream i-Size Base have been awarded the highest “Very Good” rating by independent testing organisation ADAC.

In the latest car seat test results revealed this week, only the Dream and Dream i-Size base achieved the “Very Good” ADAC safety rating.

German-based ADAC is an internationally recognised independent testing body, renowned for its rigorous approach to crash testing.

Hamish McPhillips, Silver Cross Car Safety Manager, said: “We work hard to ensure our car seats offer the safest possible environment for babies. We’re delighted to see this recognised with a class leading best-ever result from an internationally-recognised testing organisation.”

ADAC safety screening puts each car seat through a comprehensive range of front and side impact tests. The ADAC safety tests exceed standard European requirements and factor in other considerations such as ergonomics and pollutants.

Silver Cross Dream

An i-Size infant carrier suitable from 40-85cm (birth to approximately 12 months), Dream offers the very best in safety and comfort.

From their first journey home, babies are cushioned by the softest fabrics while four-layer side impact protection keeps them safe. Dream’s newborn insert is made from breathable natural bamboo fabric, which has thermo-regulating properties to keep little ones warm yet dry. Bamboo fabric is also anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic, making it perfect for sensitive baby skin.

For extra peace of mind, parents can download Silver Cross’ unique Car Safety Made Simple mobile app. It features an easy-to-follow 5-step checklist with CGI and audio commentary to ensure the car seat is fitted safely and correctly.
