Does it actually work?

Yes! Our very happy customers have been driving with the Backseat Carma for months now and we've received numerous positive feedback emails. You can read some in the 'Reviews' section of the website. In car fighting has been drastically reduced in all cases. The fact that kids’ reach and view of each other is blocked means that the opportunity and desire to bicker is massively reduced. We've also included a seat belt buckle guard so kids can't remove the Backseat Carma from it's location. It makes a huge difference to both short and long journeys. Our customers now can’t drive without it!

Will it work in my car/ SUV?

The no-fuss design means that the Backseat Carma will work in all cars and SUVs of all shapes and sizes. Any vehicle that has seat belt in the middle back seat will love the Backseat Carma.

Is it safe?

The Backseat Carma was designed and tested by our own family and we drive with it every day. So it was super important that safety was the first priority. With no sharp edges, hard components or even zips, we’ve designed the Backseat Carma to be very safe. In the event of an accident the Backseat Carma would act as a secured cushioning device. (In fact, an unsecured handbag in the car would be more dangerous) It’s important to note that the Backseat Carma is not a child seat or child restraint, it is a back seat divider and car accessory. 

What is it made from?

The Backseat Carma is made from safe soft core PU foam, which is more than likely the same material you sleep on each night as most mattresses are made from PU foam. It's covered in high quality PU leather. PU leather was created to look and feel like leather but without having to use real animal skin, it's also eco friendly and easy to wipe clean. If you have 'leather' seats in your car, they are most probably made from PU Leather. There are no sharp corners and no hard components within the Backseat Carma.
