Car Rental Queenstown

Should you hire a child restraint for your car rental Queenstown holiday? Or do you bring your own child’s car seat with you? You may be concerned your car seat will get damaged in transit? Then there is the hassle of bringing such a bulky item along with all your other baby equipment. There is also the worry your car seat won’t fit well into your car rental Queenstown vehicle. If you do decide to bring your own car seat you may need to bring other accessories. For example if you are installing the car restraint rear facing with a top tether, you might need an extension tether. You might need an angle adjuster to achieve the correct 45 degree angle? Another consideration if your rental vehicle doesn’t have Isofix is you may need a locking clip? If all this was not enough to put you off then consider if you know how to install the car restraint yourself?

If you decide not to bring your own restraint for your car rental Queenstown vehicle you may look to hire a car seat when you arrive?

Hire Car Restraint

You may decide the easiest option is to hire a restraint from your car rental company. If you take this option it’s a good idea to make sure the rental company can supply the restraint you require. There are quite a few factors to consider? If you want a rear facing restraint you will need to let the hire car company know? Remember not all rental car companies supply rear facing car seats. If they can supply a rear facing seat it’s a good idea to check if someone can help you install it. It’s not easy to install a car restraint you are not familiar with. If you have to install it yourself it’s very important you are given installation instructions. The restraint manual will allow you to check the car seat is suitable for your child. With this in mind you should check your car rental Queenstown company has plenty of car seat options. The last thing you need is to arrive and discover your booked child restraint is not suitable and there are no alternative options.

Tots on Tour Car Seat

You are more likely to end up with an appropriate child restraint if you were asked the right questions at the time of booking. In order to select the correct car seat the hire car company should be asking your child’s age, weight and height? Your child may be within the weight limits but too tall for the restraint. Or within the height limit and too heavy. Please remember this information is only a guideline for selecting the car seat. Children have different length torsos and car seats have harness slots at different heights. For this reason your restraint should not be set up before you arrive unless you have provided your child’s torso measurement. At the very least you should be given the instruction manual so you can make any necessary adjustments.

There are different Standards of testing for car restraints. Australian/New Zealand Standard, American Standard and European Standard. In New Zealand you are able to use a restraint that is approved by any of these Standards. In Australia you can only use Australian Standard approved restraints. This can be a little confusing, especially if you are travelling from Australia and not know about American or European Standard seats. You may not be familiar using chest clips which are on all American Standard seats. The position of the harness on your child will depend on which Standard restraint is being used and whether it’s forward or rear facing? In Australia all seats have tethers and must be used at all times. American Standard seats usually only use the tether when the restraint is forward facing. Though some American Standard seats can use the Swedish tether method for rear facing. This involves attaching the tether to the track of the front seat. European Standard seats do not have a tether. There’s a lot to figure out! If you’re  not confident installing an unfamiliar seat then you definitely need to make sure the person fitting it on your behalf is. It’s a good idea to seek help from a Registered Child Restraint Technician.

You will have peace of mind if you hire your child restraint from Tots on Tour. A Registered Child Restraint Technician will make sure you book the correct child restraint. You will be asked all the right questions at time of booking. Once we receive a booking we check to make sure we have all the information. If necessary we will come back to you for any missing measurements. If a booking is received a long time before your travel dates we make a diary note to contact you nearer the time. A child can grow a lot in a couple of months so it’s important we have up to date information. If you have booked online we will make sure you have selected a restraint suitable for your child’s age, weight, height and torso measurement. Or you can contact us to help you select the right car seat. Once your booking has been confirmed you will receive a link with the installation manual relevant to the seat you have hired. We recommend you download and print the manual for future reference. Using your child’s measurements Tots on Tour will liaise with your rental car Queenstown company to correctly and securely install the child restraint prior to your arrival. We will collect it after your departure. We strongly recommend you check the harness height by referring to the restraint manual. Please bear in mind the position of the harness on your child’s shoulder may need to be at, on or below, depending on the restraint Standard and whether it’s forward or rear facing. The harness position may be different to what you are familiar with for your own car seat. If in doubt contact Tots on Tour. Your child’s safety is our utmost concern and we’re here to help.

Portacot Hire Queenstown

When it comes to portacot hire Queenstown Tots on Tour are leading the way. We can all sleep well at night knowing your children are in a safe and comfortable portable cot. Tots on Tour portacot hire Queenstown introduced a portacot set up that meets international safety standards.

In 2009 retailers in Australia stopped selling portacot foam mattresses and for very good reason. Until Standard AS/NZS 8811.1:2013 was introduced there wasn’t a mattress firmness specification. It’s a sad reality that infants have suffocated whilst sleeping in portacots. Asphyxiation can happen if a child’s head becomes wedged between a foam mattress or other non approved padding and the cot base. Non breathable material on the side of the portacot can cause an infant to suffocate. This is especially dangerous for very young babies that have not developed sufficient head control.

Justin Swales was 5 months old and being looked after by his grandmother. She put an extra mattress in the cot to make him more comfortable. Fifteen minutes later he was dead. Reading stories like this strengthened our resolve. Tots on Tour set up a  safe and comfortable hire portacot set up for our travelling families. For this reason Portacot hire Queenstown has never been safer.

portacot hire queenstown

 

The first step to improving the safety of portacot hire Queenstown was to update our stock. The latest safety standards advocate portacots should have breathable material on all four sides of the portacot. In 2010, the joint Australian/New Zealand Standard for cots was altered. It now includes a new safety feature to reduce suffocation hazards in portacots – ‘the breathability zone’ and breathable fabric must go to the base of the cot.

Sleeping Bags

Babies and young children can also become tangled in bedding which poses a strangulation risk. Using an approved infant sleeping bag can be significantly reduce risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Therefore using a sleeping bag is the perfect solution. Tots on Tour provide a complimentary sleeping bag which is available in three sizes from newborn to approx 3 years.

Car Seats, Boosters & Capsules for Hire in Queenstown, New Zealand

Car seats can also be called capsules, car restraints and boosters.  There are many things to consider when choosing what to hire.  Tots on Tour’s Registered Child Restraint Technician can help you make the right choice. Infants and toddlers should remain rear facing as long as possible.  Compared to rear impact accidents vehicles are usually travelling a lot faster when front impact accidents occur.  Objects and people in the car will move towards the direction of impact.  Babies large heads make up approximately 25% of their body weight. Bones and muscle stretch but their spinal cord does not.  This results in horrific injuries for forward facing children in front impact car accidents.

Head Proportions

When 8 month Prince George visited New Zealand his car seat was installed forward facing.  The New Zealand Herald wrote an article about this controversial decision.  Tots on Tour were asked to comment.  We agreed there was a need to educate parents regarding safe installation of car seats.  There is no legal requirement on which direction to install car seats. It is ultimately the parents choice. People were outraged Prince George’s car seat was installed forward facing.  Many felt it conveyed the wrong message to parents.  On the positive side the adverse publicity stirred public debate and increased awareness on correctly fitting car seats.

You can find more information regarding car seat law changes by reading our previous post.

Capsules

Capsules are a great option for babies.  These car seats are fitted rear facing.  They can be lifted in and out of the car easily and have a convenient carry handle.  Some capsules have a base that remain in the vehicle. Capsules are suitable up to 15kg depending on the brand.

Convertible Car Seats

Convertible car seats are suitable from new born to approx 18kg.  It’s important to always check manufacturers’ weight and size guidelines.  A child may exceed the recommended height before exceeding the weight limit or vice versa.  These car seats can be installed rear or forward facing.  Again, check manufacturers’ instructions for weight recommendations on rear and forward facing installations.  Evenflo’s Tribute car seat can be rear facing up to 18kg. Some car seats have tethers that are attached to anchor bolts in the vehicle.  It is important to correctly identify these anchor bolts.  There can be cargo holds which are mistaken for anchor bolts.  The cargo holds are not strong enough to secure the tether in a high impact accident.  If in doubt seek advise from your Tots on Tour Registered Child Restraint Technician.  If your car seat has a tether you must use a vehicle that has anchor bolts. Check with your hire car company. Evenflo’s Tribute car seat is designed to only use it’s tether in the forward facing position.  This car seat is a great option for rear facing when there are no anchor bolts in the vehicle.

At approximately 4 years the harness can be removed.  The child out grows the harness when they reach 18kg or the top of the harness strap is below their shoulders when using the highest slots. When using with a seat belt make sure the lap belt rests over the child’s lap and not their abdomen.  Make sure the head rest is adjusted to the correct height.  The sash belt is placed over the child’s shoulder using the booster seat shoulder guide.  This booster seat can be used up to 36kg (approximately 12yrs). The child’s eye level should be below the top of the car seat.

Baby Jogger Mini City Mini GT is my favourite go to pram. It’s compact for around around town but great on walking tracks too. The one hand quick fold is brilliant. It has a very large sun shade that can be pulled right back if required. I love the hand operated parking brake too. Tots on Tour also have the Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double available for hire.

Highchairs

Highchair Queenstown New Zealand

Highchairs, Booster Seat and Bumbo Floor Seat – Hire in Queenstown, New Zealand

Tots on Tour in Queenstown, New Zealand hire quality highchairs. Our rental equipment also includes chair boosters and Bumbo Baby seats.

When travelling with a young family there are lots of things to think about. One consideration is what your infant or toddler will sit on? Many accommodation providers will provide highchairs but some will not. Some restaurants will provide but there is not always enough and sometimes none. It’s a bit hit and miss really! There also comes a point when your toddler decides he or she is far too old for a highchair! A booster seat could come in handy at this point? Or perhaps a wooden highchair. These highchairs have the appeal of looking quite grown up. Your preschooler will love sitting at the table at the same height as everyone else!

Tots on Tour have a wide selection of highchairs to meet your needs. We clean them thoroughly after each hire with eco friendly products. The trays are removable which makes cleaning a breeze and easy access for your child.

The Mocka Soho Highchair has no tray but instead a safety rail is used for younger children. For older children you can remove the safety rail and position the highchair at the table. Your child will feel very grown up! This is a great option for children that have outgrown a highchair but are still too small for a regular seat.

BOOSTER SEATS

 Another way for your child to join you at the table is to use a booster seat. These are attached to a regular chair and the infant is held safely in place with a harness. Tots on Tour have two options available. The Fisher Price Healthy Care Booster Seat has a removable tray that is dishwasher safe. You can also remove the tray entirely if you prefer your child to use the table. Our inflatable booster seat is a great option when you’re out and about. It packs down small with a handy carry handle.

Our port a cot set up includes complimentary sleeping bags and a fleece blanket.

One our most popular hire items is the portacot. Some people prefer to call them port a cots or porta cots or travel cots. The French word for carry or transport is porter.

On another note we went to the recent A&P Show at Lakes Hayes which was a great family outing with something for everybody. The children especially loved the magic show. We got many comments from other parents about our kids wearing hydration packs …. they could drink whenever they wanted and we didn’t have to carry their drink bottles! There was plenty of children’s toys and nick knacks to buy for cheap as well.

Sun Safety for kids

Sun Safety

Sun Safety while visiting Queenstown is hugely important as our sun is super strong.  New Zealand has the highest rate of melanoma skin cancer in the world. But the good news is it’s easy to reduce your chances of developing skin cancer – you only have to be Sun Safe. Make sure your children are regularly covered with a good quality sunscreen (we use Banana Boat, Sport SPF 30+ and find it great), wear a hat and also suitable clothing to cover up …. Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap. Even in the dappled shade of a tree your kids can burn if not well covered with sunscreen and clothing ….. good sun safety on your Queenstown holiday will make life better for you and your kids.

Tots on Tour has a Phil and Teds travel cot which is great for hanging out in the outdoors with your young one while they have a sleep in a well ventilated cot and provides good sun safety. It’s easy to set up and the kids seem to love them too. We just hang a sarong wrap over them to create darkness and down they go!

 

Tots on Tour sun safety travel Cot

Sun safety is especially important when around the water as the reflection gives even more sun to cope with and don’t forget grey days too ….. the sun is still there behind the clouds and it can be very dangerous to forget to apply that sun cream. Please be super sun safe with your kids this summer.

Child Carrier makes Queenstown family hiking easy

Tots on Tour Child Carrier Queenstown New Zealand

A kids child carrier makes easy hiking with children in Queenstown. Got to the top of the Queenstown Gondola for a stroll with the kids and then carried on up Ben Lomond for a bit. The Tots on Tour child carrier made it an easy and comfortable  stroll.

There are lots of great walks and hikes you can do that are suitable for families in the Queenstown area. One of our favourite hikes using the child carrier is the Kelvin Height to Jacks point track (it is quite a long one, even just one way). It gives amazing views over Lake Wakatipu and into the mountains and if you arrange for someone to meet you at Jacks Point a nice pinot never goes too far astray to finish off a lovely outing.

Lake Hayes Loop track is brilliant and there is a great picnic spot to enjoy and lots of bird life too keep the lids happy with duck feeding …. take some extra bread!

The Loop track in Arrowtown is really good too and dropping into Provisions for a sticky bun will just make your day.

For a slightly more strenuous work out, hike to the basket of dreams on the top of Queenstown hill.
