Happy and safe little travellers

Announcing the winners of our child safety First photo contest in February’s oasis living.

As a part of our annual Happy Passenger Child Safety Seat campaign in February’s Oasis Living, we asked you to send in photographs of your child safely strapped into the family car.

We were overwhelmed with the wonderful response from readers who sent us photos of their little ones safely secured in their car safety seats.

The kids – from babies upwards – all looked so cute, but more importantly, so safe, that it’s been a joy to see just how many of our readers who are parents of little ones, insist on safety first in the car.

We entered each entry into a random draw on February 16 and it was little Zainab Solkar’s name which came out first to win a Dh500 gift voucher, courtesy of Babyshop who has again sponsored this competition. Zainab is just over four months old!

The second name to be drawn was that of Henry Rhys Douglas Davies

who will be two in June. His parents win a Dh250 Babyshop gift voucher. Our second runner-up was Adam Al Atrash who will be four next month. His parents also win a Dh250 Babyshop gift voucher.

We’d also like to commend Gregory, Randy, Leo, Jerson Louis, Lezlie, Vartika, Umayr, Ayah Renee and Catalina, whose photos were so cute we couldn’t resist including them as well.

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition. And please, readers, keep spreading the word about the necessity of ensuring that children, from newborns to pre-teens are well strapped into cars using the appropriate type of restraint for the child’s age.

This is a campaign which really shouldn’t be dedicated to just two issues of a magazine – it’s something which must be practiced all year round to ensure our young children remain safe while travelling on the roads.
