EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Britax Essentials Emblem is a convertible car seat that can be used both rear and forward facing. This convertible car seat has two layers of side impact protection featuring SafeCell Impact Protection. This is a special patented system of safety features that help keep baby safe in case of impact. A five-point harness has 10 positions to adjust easily to keep up with your growing child. And installing this in the car is easy with the LATCH system. A steel frame adds to the safety and an impact absorbing base along with a V-shape tether helps soften the impact by reducing seat rotation and forward movement. 

Why Is It Useful?

We like the Emblem a lot. This is part of the Essentials line from Britax which is a more affordable line of car seats. Safety is not sacrificed for the price at all. We only see a very small difference in the plushness of the fabrics used but the steel frame and SafeCell technology is everything you would find in the Britax brand across all their car seats. This convertible car seat is great for your growing child and offers comfort safety and ease of install all around. 

Who It’s For

The Britax Essentials Emblem is for use with kids weighing 5-40 pounds in rear-facing mode and 20-65 pounds in forward-facing mode.  This is ideal for children from birth up to 5 or even 6 years of age. 

What To Be Aware Of
The Britax Emblem is available in various colors and can be used for kids up to 6 years.
