Well made, well padded, meets saftey standards, meets my standards!
August 15, 2013
This seat isn't much bigger than the infant version, but will definatly grow with my child well. My 5year old could still fit in it.
Purchased for a 21lb, 30" tall toddler. She is quite petite, so currently has plenty of leg room rear facing.
I love the adjustable back, the padding is good, feels almost like memory foam on the bottom, where her little bottom sits!
The fabric is great, she won't sweat like mad in it. And it looks good, such a nice looking seat (but obviously saftey is first priority).
I reviewed many seats, this one met every saftey standard, (has a reinforced frame, eps foam, SIP, including a top teather for rear facing; a new feature on these seats and rare to find in any other seat, normally top teather is only for forward facing mode.) up to 45lbs rear facing, and the backrest can go up to notch 7 in rear facing - there are 10 height adjustments, the last 3 heights can only be used forward facing, and to 70lbs in that mode.
Installing was relatively easy, good instructions and picture guide in booklet.
My daughter hasn't complained once about being in it, I'm confidant it will keep her safe and that I'll be using it until she hits kindergarten!!
I can fit this seat and two high back booster seats across 3 seats in our suv.
Easy installation (latch connectors used)
Best Uses:Baby (has a padded insert for smaller babies)
Up to age 5ish?!
