SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading American car seat brand Diono is thrilled to announce that two of their products – the Radian 3QXT+ and the Monterey 5iST FixSafe – have won National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) for “striking” design, comfort and versatility, with strong focus on safety.

The NAPPA awards take place annually, showcasing the best products for families. Now in its 31st year, NAPPA is one of the longest-running awards programs in the United States. Categories evaluated include toys, games and books, baby products, maternity and new mom products, and gadgets 'n' gear.

“It's an honor to be recognized by NAPPA for this award,” says Tim Maule, CEO. “We were confident that the design and engineering of these car seats went above and beyond our existing high standards, and for that to be confirmed by experts at NAPPA is fantastic. The comments we received from the evaluation process are a testimony to the hard work and dedication of the Diono Team, and we are all delighted with the results.”

Radian 3QXT+: Safety never looked so good

Designed for families with discerning taste, the Diono Radian 3QXT+ all-in-one car seat offers first-class travel from birth to booster, cocooning children in safety and comfort as they grow. Here’s why NAPPA Award evaluators loved the Radian 3QXT+:

“I like how safety-focused the design of the car seat is, and that you can use this from newborn to booster.”

“They’ve put a lot of thought into the safety features and design.”

“The newborn and infant padding is quite extensive. When the padding is removed, the toddler setting is still very comfortable and has memory foam padding on the seat.”

“The calf support is adjustable and makes long rides in the car more comfortable without pinching a nerve or causing legs to fall asleep. The head rest has 12 different positions and gets very tall for the booster setting.”

Monterey 5iST FixSafe: Travel reinvented

Diono designed this booster for ultimate portability, without compromising safety and comfort. At 25% smaller than the average booster, the Monterey 5iST FixSafe transforms in seconds from a compact fold to a full-size booster seat. Here's why NAPPA Award evaluators loved the Monterey 5iST FixSafe:

“I’ve never encountered such an intuitive booster seat–from the one-hand automatic adjustment to the easy latch system–these are features I haven’t seen before.”

“When I unfolded the seat, I immediately was struck by how cool the booster looked. It has a very sleek and modern design to it. The colors we have are a nice red and black which looks really sharp.”

“The design is striking and innovative.”

“The seat’s ability to expand in both height and width with one button is really cool. The seat can provide 85% more room, so I know this will last for years to come.”

About Diono

Diono entered the market in 1999 with a commitment to safety, original design, and smart travel solutions. Our core values never changed, but our desire to innovate grew. This dedication led to Diono introducing the industry’s first expandable booster, Monterey, ingeniously designed to grow with children for up to 8 years. But we didn’t stop there, and soon after Diono became the brand behind the original 3-across all-in-one convertible car seat, Radian. Diono never compromises on safety and is the first brand to crash test accessories. In keeping with our #ColorTheJourney philosophy, Diono seats come in a rainbow of colors, allowing little passengers to boldly express themselves and their style as we celebrate the #JoyOfTheJourney together.
