Best-In-Class Safety Features

Extended Rear-Facing use with all-around protection

profile view of foonf

Extended Rear-Facing Installation

Foonf was designed to international best practices for extended rear-facing use, which is to accommodate children in a rear-facing installation until their 4th birthday.

Rigid Sub-Structure

Foonf is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure.


Advanced Side Impact Protection

Energy-absorbing foam-lined Headrest connected to frame using steel rods provides maximum head protection in a side-impact collision. Foam layers on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.

NCAP Tested

Foonf is crash tested to NCAP, which simulates forces experienced in extreme collisions.

Anti-Rebound Bar

In Rear-Facing mode, Foonf’s Anti-Rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat, helping protect your child’s head from impact in the case of a collision.

The Revolutionary REACT™ Safety System

Reducing the forces transmitted to your forward-facing child in a frontal collision.

Safety System
Rigid-LATCH Energy Absorbing Crumple Technology

In keeping with the American Academy of Pediatrics advice to keep toddlers in Rear-Facing car seats until age 2 (or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat), we sought out to design a child seat that reduces the forces on older children in car seats when they transition forward-facing.

The REACT™ Safety System integrated into every Foonf child seat protects your child much like the crumple zones in the cars we drive — one of the most effective innovations in automotive safety.

In a collision, the vehicle comes to an abrupt stop, but the child continues to move at the same speed. The less time that it takes for the child to come to a complete stop, the higher the forces exerted on the child. The REACT Safety System allows that sudden change in momentum to happen over a longer period of time through a series of controlled events. Foonf is designed to ride down the collision crumpling the aluminum honeycomb and absorbing energy from the collision resulting in less force transferred to the child. See how Foonf performs.
