Parents who purchase their child's car seat from a Brixy member store—a trade association for independent juvenile retailers in the United States—have access to a Britax premium car seat line featuring the ClickTight installation system and an exclusive fashion for Brixy stores. The Boulevard ClickTight convertible and the Frontier ClickTight harness-2-booster will be available at select Brixy stores while supplies last.
These two car seats ensure that everyone can get a tight installation with just a click. Open the ClickTight, buckle the seat belt across and click the seat shut. From rear-facing newborns to booster-seated tweens, Britax offers safety technologies like ClickTight and SafeCell impact protection.
"According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, three out of four children are either not securely fastened in their car seats or are in a car seat that is not properly secured to the vehicle," says Jill Cartwright, executive director of Brixy. "Britax aims to ensure parents can properly install their child's car seat every time, in every vehicle, using the ClickTight installation system." Brixy stores are rolling out the Britax ClickTight car seats in the exclusive Dylan pattern throughout September. Both limited-edition styles boast plush foam padding and soft-to-the-touch fabrics for premium comfort in unisex color combinations.

"After gathering participant feedback and holding extensive discussions about the pros and cons of various alternative locations, we are pleased to announce that we have recommitted to the Dallas Market Center for the next three years," says Steve Pasierb, TIA president and CEO. "For the last decade, Fall Toy Preview has worked tremendously well for many in the toy industry. We look forward to further strengthening and enhancing the marketplace as we continue to incorporate business, networking and educational opportunities to benefit attendees who flock to the show from around the globe."
TIA's Trade Show Committee, made up of a range of member company types and sizes, conducted a 10-year review of Fall Toy Preview to determine whether the event's current timing, location and strategy position the show for both short- and long-term success. Alternate sites, date options, rental fees and ancillary costs were explored before it was determined that either Dallas or Los Angeles would be the best fit for the show. Because LA posed several challenges, including a lack of available venues for 2016 and 2017, the Trade Show Committee submitted a consensus proposal to keep the fall marketplace in Dallas through 2018. The proposal was recently approved by TIA's Executive Committee and Board.
Fall Toy Preview 2015 will bring together hundreds of buyers from mass, mid-tier and specialty retail outlets who rely on the show to jumpstart fourth quarter planning and negotiate customized products and exclusive lines months in advance of in-store delivery. Nearly 350 toymakers, many with open booths or display areas, will showcase new and beloved brands that will drive holiday '16 toy sales. Fall Toy Preview will take place October 6-8, 2015 at the Dallas Market Center. Buyers, trade guests and exhibitors may register for Fall Toy Preview online.
