Abstract

Car seats began appearing in the 1930s and 40s, when they were first created so that children could see out the windows of the car rather than as a safety precaution. The seats came in a variety of styles with most looking like steel armchairs. In 1981 the Plunket Society began their car seat rental scheme in Dunedin. It was not until 1994 that it became a legal requirement that all children under five had to be restrained in a regulation car seat while travelling in a car. Today all children under seven must be properly restrained in a car seat. Plunket is again there for support; it has offices nationwide that provide seats for hire.
