Fits 3 Across
Foonf boasts a narrow width ? under 17 in. at its widest point and 13 in.at the base ? making 3-across seating possible.


Side Impact Protection
Foam layers on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.


Rigid-LATCH Forward-Facing Installation
Hands down the easiest Forward-Facing installation in its class, Foonf's Rigid-LATCH system makes proper Forward-Facing installation effortless.


REACT Safety System
Rigid Energy Absorbing Crumple Technology integrated into every Foonf child seat protects your child much like the crumple zones in the cars we drive ? one of the most effective innovations in automotive safety.

The Clek Foonf is the mother of all car seats. Its patented REACT (Rigid-Latch Energy Absorbing Crumple Technology) safety system revolutionizes forward-facing safety performance by significantly reducing the forces transmitted to the child in a collision delivering 'rear-facing like' performance.

Foonf offers an industry-leading extended rear-facing use up to 50 pound, complete with a steel anti-rebound bar for enhanced safety performance. Its tank-like construction features a complete metal substructure, dual layers of energy absorbing foam and adjustable structural headrest for advanced side impact protection. Innovative convenience features like Rigid-LATCH makes proper forward-facing installation effortless.

At less than 17 inches wide, it makes 3-across installation possible in most vehicles. The Foonf is tailored in GREENGUARD Select Certified Crypton Super Fabrics, which provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odor-causing bacteria; and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants (excluding leather models).

  • Extended Rear-Facing Installation: Foonf was designed to international best practices for extended rear-facing use, which is to accommodate children in a rear-facing installation until their 4th birthday.
  • Structural Headrest with Deep Side Wings: Energy-absorbing foam-lined Headrest connected to frame using steel rods provides maximum head protection in a side-impact collision.
  • Energy-Absorbing Foam Layers: Foam layers on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.
  • Rigid Sub-Structure: Foonf is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure.
  • Anti-Rebound Bar: In Rear-Facing mode, Foonf's Anti-Rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat, helping protect your child's head from impact in the case of a collision.
  • Rigid-LATCH Forward-Facing Installation: Over 80% of child seats in North America are not used properly. Hands down the easiest Forward-Facing installation in its class, Foonf's Rigid-LATCH system makes proper Forward-Facing installation effortless.
  • Improved Rear-Facing Installation: Unique design improves Rear-Facing installation with an easy-access belt path, small footprint and Anti-Rebound Bar that provide a snug installation with ease.
  • Smooth Recline: Foonf includes an easy-to-engage, smooth recline function, making each ride more comfortable.
  • GREENGUARD Select Certified: Crypton? Super Fabrics are GREENGUARD Select Certified and provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odor-causing bacteria; and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants.

Incredibly solid and secure seat
January 16, 2024
This car seat feels incredibly solid and secure. It's a bit of a pain to install compared to my Rava, but it also seems more secure. My child is comfortable in this seat and has no complaints as well.
Pros
  • Looks great, safe, secure, comfortable
Cons

Not for our family
January 15, 2024
I personally did not like this car seat. I originally had a Nuna Rava and loved that. After getting into a car accident and learning that we were expected another, we decided to replace the Rava with the Clek for space. Although it was slimmer, it felt heavier than the Rava and never as secure. My toddler said it hurt her back and that she wasn't cozy, it made traveling miserable for her and us. Overall, this car seat is more expensive, more difficult to navigate, heavier, and uncomfortable. We ended up taking the loss and repurchasing the Rava. This just did not work for our family.

Safe, sturdy, and pink!

We are moving to Canada from the U.S., and we needed a car seat that is Canadian. This one works well in our Toyota Sienna in rear facing mode for our 4 yr old. She should be able to stay rear facing for at least another year, and then we will switch to FF. It’s VERY sturdy, heavy, and I can get a very secure latch.

Pros
  • It seems VERY safe and sturdy!!
Best Uses
  • Rear facing for extended use! Infant to young child!
Cons

Safety features for the win
December 25, 2023
Easy install and with this car seat, you know your child is safe, due to all the features this seat has. Foonf has been my go to seat for my last 3 children, because even other high priced brands don’t compare in safety.
Cons
  • Heavy and large, not for someone who needs to move this seat around constantly.

This is our favorite car seat! It is a little tough to take apart and uninstall/ reinstall, but it’s a monster! I couldn’t imagine my little in anything other than this. Also, it’s the only car seat on the market that has crash ratings released. Not just a pass or fail!

We opted on the merino whool this purchase and it’s very soft and light. Keeps warm or keeps cool.

Not made for road trips - hurts back
November 18, 2023
Yes the seat looks sleek. Yes install is fairly easy. Yes it’s solid and seems safe. However this seat is not meant for road trips or car rides longer than an hour max. My daughter complains about her back hurting. She can’t get comfortable to sleep. She complained when she was still rear facing, but she was 2 or 3 and I thought she was just being fussy. Now that she’s forward facing and just turned 5, we took a road trip that took several hours and she was able to verbalize what was happening. I knew I should have installed her Chicco seat in our truck because the foonf is just not made for anything outside of regular daily driving. Chicco have all around better seats.
Pros
  • Safe, sturdy, elegant, easy install.
Cons
  • Not comfortable especially for forward facing kids.
  • Daily driving only. Not made for road trips.
  • Not as comfy as other seats like Chicco

Safe and looks so good
November 17, 2023
Love this color combo (blue fabric and black frame) and wish they would have it in the Oobr. These seats feel so sturdy and safe. They're simple and look sleek. Not a lot of stuff for things to get lost in and they stay clean. I personally prefer the Thunder color and we have a seat in that fabric color. But when buying a second I let the kids pick so they can have a little fun and get excited about using their seat. This fabric feels less "sleek" than the Thunder but Clek claims they're both equally stain resistant. Love how long they can stay rear facing and how simple they are to use.

To notch safety!
November 10, 2023
The Clek Foonf car seat impresses with its top-notch safety features and comfort. However, its substantial size and weight can make transferring between cars a challenge. Additionally, the difficulty of washing might be a drawback for those seeking easy maintenance.
Pros
  • Safety & comfort
Cons
  • Heavy
  • Hard to wash

Best of the best
October 30, 2023
Although it took a bit to understand installation, once I figured it out it was straight forward and feels SIGNIFICANTLY more secure, thanks to the metal LATCH system rather than the soft strap. I immediately ordered another one for our other car and will be purchasing yet another for our other kiddo when she grows out of her infant seat. 10/10 would recommend. Albee baby shipped it VERY quickly as always.

Truly solid car seat!
September 11, 2023
This was my first ever car seat purchase and I was on the lookout for the best. It has truly been a wonderful car seat for our first child who is 2 years old as of today! We haven't run into any issues at all with it. High in price, but I feel that the quality of materials, safety, and peace of mind has been totally worth it! Only other thing I'd mention is how heavy the seat is. If you need something lightweight and portable you're in the wrong place--hope you already know that. I personally have only spot cleaned the seat but have read the washable cover is easy to clean and replace. The merino wool/tencel fabric has worn very well in my opinion. We don't allow food in our little one's carseat 95% of the time so the amount of soiling has been minimal naturally. With as much as our daughter has kicked her legs around I'm pleasantly surprised there's been close to ZERO piling/wearing down of the fabric. Looking forward to getting many more years of use out of this car seat!

Built like a tank
June 16, 2023
The best car seat I have ever owned. It is built like an absolute tank! Very heavy and sturdy. One of the safest seats on the market. It also allowed me to fit 3 across in my midsize SUV. The fabric is incredible. So easy to wipe down and clean with just a baby wipe. Very happy with this purchase. We have 2 and will be buying a 3rd soon!
Pros
  • Slim, can fit 3 across
  • Safe - seat is heavy and sturdy
  • Easy to Clean Fabric
Cons
  • Re thread harness
  • Extra pieces to use rear facing (angler and rebound bar)
  • Not machine washable

Not in love
May 16, 2023
I bought this for my 2-year old, hoping to extend rear facing for another year. I’m quite tall (5’11”) so I can’t safely install it behind my seat. On the passenger side, it creates a huge blind spot. This makes taking angled left-hand turns dangerous, and I have to do this daily. Hopefully it’ll be better when forward facing, but I’m wishing I bought another Britax or tried a Nuna Rava.
Pros
  • Secure install
  • Straps easy to tighten
Cons
  • Blind spot when rear facing
  • Very large and heavy

I’ve purchased more Foonfs than I care to admit. We love them for our kids. They’re built like a tank, they’re slim and stylish, and we’ve never heard a peep complaining about comfort. Importantly, I don’t worry about my kids safety in this car seat. I also love that they have a merino wool option. There are some improvements that could be made (Aka washability of the fabric) but honestly it’s not a big deal.

Excited to use it
March 26, 2023
We are just setting up this car seat now. My favorite features are the reasons we bought it. The slim design and flame retardant free! We had the infant carrier and I wanted to not have to worry about what car we had and be able to have three across. Im happy to say after seeing how this fits next to the infant base we would have plenty of room for three across with this brand. I wish more brands would make their seats narrower. Our son has room to grow into this seat. Like other clek features it isn’t my favorite for ease of use and the instructions could use some work. I also got a cut from a metal shaving on the headrest when I was installing it. The harness is the typical material for car belts and this one had some long strings that missed their cut. I’ve been less than impressed with cleks quality overall. I think the price point demands better quality assurance for the end product. Nevertheless I am excited to start using it and hoping that I won’t have gripes about it. I will update accordingly as we use it.

Heavy as a tank but worth every penny
January 10, 2023
Not going to sugar coat it, this car seat is heavy. But no part of this car seat feels cheap. We also own a cheaper $100 popular brand car seat for travel and the difference is night and day in quality. My wife and I only came across this brand because our vehicle has inflatable seatbelts in the rear seats. Only a handful of car seats are approved to be used with inflatable seatbelts and the Clek Foonf is one of them. The LATCH connection for forward facing is amazing and makes install easy. The cherry on top is that this car seat actually looks good too. The child seat belts move freely when trying to loosen or tighten. We love this car seat so much we bought a second for our second vehicle that doesn't have inflatable seat belts. We will also continue to use Clek in the future because of this experience.
Pros
  • Inflatable seatbelt approved
  • Rigid LATCH for forward facing
  • Anti-Rebound bar for rear facing
  • Good looks
  • Narrow
  • Multiple fabric material options and colors
Best Uses
  • For vehicles with inflatable seatbelts in the rear seat like Ford
Cons
  • Only the bottom seat can be removed to spot wash, back fabric needs to be spot washed on the car seat
  • Fabric is not machine washable
  • Heavy

No padding, difficult to install…not worth it
January 7, 2023
I’m so sad that I don’t love this car seat. It’s important to note this has ZERO padding on the inside, which was a huge adjustment going from the infant seat to this. She screams every time she gets in it, and there really isn’t much we can do to adjust it. It was also very difficult to install, and sits up high so she bumps her head getting in. We lost our window to return it, but for their money there are so many better options with higher value out there.
Cons
  • Uncomfortable, difficult to install

Great! But do your research about LATCH system
November 12, 2022
Steep learning curve installing it into our car. One of the biggest lessons we did not realize is that if you are planning on using it backwards facing to start, you cannot use the rigid LATCH system. The whole reason we bought this was because of that feature, so lesson learned and buyer beware. Also, just so you know, it's likely if you plan on using the middle seat, you also cannot use the rigid LATCH system because most cars do not have the hooks around the middle seat for it, so you'll have to install it on a side. That being said, once installed, it is relatively easy to buckle the baby in, she looks very comfortable and has plenty of room to grow, and it's very helpful knowing that even installed without the rigid LATCH the car seat is very safe and free from many harmful chemicals. It also seems to be good temperature-wise in both cold and hot temperatures.

IS NOT SECURE
November 7, 2022
I have had the nuna rava for 3 years with my other child. I decided I’d like to try a seat that can utilize car space better. However when I received the clek foonf I was surprised how large it was and did not save ANY more space than my nuna. I made a side by side comparison video of the two as well. The fabric on the nuna was better quality and softer. Clerks seat isn’t washable. The biggest factor was after installation (and I had it triple checked by two others) the clek was not secure. It wobbled and could lean. It was shakey and didn’t not feel tight against the seat like other car seats and my nuna. We strapped it as tight as we could. It also does NOT RECLINE MUCH AT all!! My daughter was slumped forward when she fell asleep where in the nuna she never did. (Neither did my son) it is extremely tall when in rear facing bc of the wedge you have to attach. You need to re thred the seat belt straps as the child grows where other seats you just pull up as they grow. Overall it was harder to assemble and not as user friendly. Did not feel nearly as secure and safe for my child. I wanted to LOVE THIS CHAIR bc I love the more minimalistic look but when I say the nuna and clek side by side the nuna actually looked nicer.
Pros
  • Stylish look
Cons
  • Rebar makes the seat slide up.
  • Does not recline much.
  • Does not fasten into the car tight and secure enough like our nuna.
  • Does not come with cup holders.
  • Seat is not completely washable.

Worth every penny! This seat is just top notch. While the installation is slightly different than many standard seats, it is so easy once you learn. The harness straps adjust so much more smoothly than many other seats. I love how easy the fabric is to clean and how well it holds up. Albee Baby always has great prices and selection compared to most other shops! While this seat is certainly on the expensive side, a car seat is not the place to sacrifice and I love being fully confident that I have chosen such a safe seat for my kids. If anything were to ever happen, I would not have a second thought about whether a different car seat would have been a better choice.
