Toronto, ON, June 26, 2014—Clek, the award-winning car seat manufacturer, unveils Fllo, its new compact convertible car seat made in Canada. Fllo reaffirms the Canadian company’s continued ability to package industry-leading safety and innovation into a child seat that looks friggin’ awesome.
“We’re bringing Clek’s safety, convenience and style into a lighter, more compact seat,” says Chris Lumley, President and Founder of the young, family-run company which has recently expanded into multiple markets worldwide. Clek proudly manufactures its child seats Foonf and Fllo in Canada. Nearly 70 Canadians are involved in bringing the progressive convertible car seats to market, including 40 direct manufacturing jobs. “The Fllo model features extended rear-facing use, advanced side-impact protection, and an energy–absorbing safety system, while still boasting a best-in-class width for three-across installation.”
Clek has established itself as a ‘must have’ product and developed a massive North American following amongst parenting circles. It recently won the coveted Crisbie Award for Better Living.
Fllo will hit stores across the country next month in a variety of colours using GREENGUARD Select Certified Crypton Super Fabrics which have a moisture barrier, are stain resistant, eliminate odour-causing bacteria and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. These include Shadow, Ink, Tank, and Flamingo (MSRP $399.99 in Canada/MSRP $379.99 in US); Thunder and Slate (MSRP $419.99 in Canada/MSRP $399.99 in US) and the tokidoki® editions in Rebel and All-Over (MSRP $449.99 in Canada/MSRP $429.99 in US), available for purchase at shop.clekinc.ca in Canada or shop.clekinc.com in the US, and through specialty retailers across North America. The Drift model, a black, automotive-grade fabric (MSRP $369.99 in Canada/MSRP $349.99 in US) will also be sold at Babies “R” Us and Canadian Tire in Canada and at BuyBuyBaby in the US.
