Having a 1 year old daughter to take on road trips with quickly has me scurrying to locate all of my car seat accessories. I had no idea that Diono had such a great selection (along with great car seats and boosters but more on those to come later). I was recently offered the opportunity to become part of the Diono’s Mom Panel and I enthusiastically agreed already having a Diono carseat in my car for over 2 years now I can truly attest to their great value.
This month I was able to review 3 products:
Perfect for changing bags, backpacks, cars, boats and dog leashes. Large 43.2 cm bags are lightly scented to control odors. 3 disposable dispensers per retail package. 12 bags per dispenser.
The first back seat mirror that rotates 360 degrees and pivots on a ball and socket for the perfect angle to view an infant, without moving your rear view mirror. Attaches securely to the middle of any headrest. Easy View does not block rear visibility and does not need to be positioned directly over a child. The shallow convex shape offers the largest, clearest reflection of any back seat mirror. See your baby and see the road easily with Easy View.
All the features you love about Super Mat™ but now with a handy changing pad in the front pocket, so you can change baby before leaving the car. Compact designed changing pad unfolds to a cushioned surface with useful storage pockets. Super Mat Deluxe™ features individual panels of high density foam that contour to any vehicle seat and protect upholstery from the permanent indentations caused by child safety seats. Non-slip surfaces on the top and bottom prevent slipping and sliding of child safety seats. Works with all infant carriers, car seats and booster seats. Washable. LATCH/UAS compatible.
My take: I have never had much luck with back seat mirrors and my ability to watch my child. They slip, the child grows so I have to readjust or the mirror is of such poor quality that the image is blurry and always too small. I installed the Easy View within 2 minutes thanks to the buckle. Tighten to your desired length, place underneath the head rest, snap the buckles together and adjust the mirror and you are set. I adore how this mirror rotates to any direction you need. I have been using this mirror for a while now and noticed that she was growing out of her 12 month clothes so I needed to adjust the mirror secondary to her increased height. One simple rotation and the mirror was perfectly placed. It has not slipped out of place and I can clearly see her whenever I need to which is doubly important since she will be rear facing until she is two years old. The size of this mirror is very impressive as well.
The Bag It comes with 3 rolls and is great to use with diaper bags, in the car or on the go. I like how each roll has its own plastic dispenser because I have broken off the dispenser top with other models which doesn’t allow the other rolls to be used with the dispenser. There is a black elastic band that allows for easy anchoring wherever you choose to place it. The Super Mat Deluxe was the last thing I installed in the car and I was impressed with the little things. There is a grippy back which makes sure the mat doesn’t slip around. As you can see in the below picture there is also spaces so you can easily attach the car seat with the LATCH handles:
Another great feature is how well it protects my van seat. In the below picture you can see that the car seat does not come into contact with the van seat anymore (the piece hanging down underneath the car seat is the removable changing pad):
Lastly the diaper changing pad is a great feature. It attaches to the Super Mat Deluxe via a zipper and is readily available whenever needed. Below is a picture of the changing pad laid out:
