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.

Amazing car seat
September 5, 2019
Putting the car seat together and setting it up took a lot of reviewing the instructions, but once I got it and installed it in my car, it was fine. Adjusting the straps may be a little difficult when the car seat it already installed rear facing, as the seat has to be removed and the latch is pressed against the backrest of the seat of the car. I suggest adjusting it to your baby before you install it in your car. The moment I placed my son in it, he sort of melted. He immediately looked calm and comfy. Not long into the ride, he fell asleep. The merino wool is very soft so I guess itā€™s really cozy. It is quite large though. We have a Honda Pilot and it is right against the back of the passenger seat, with enough leg room for the passenger. Itā€™s also tall, so I had to move the mirror I use to see my son to the middle headrest. These are all small things but if you want it in a smaller vehicle, it may be really tight. It looks like my son is happy in it, so Iā€™m happy. Plus, itā€™s very sturdy and safe. Really feels like itā€™s built like a tank.

Good seat for extended rear-facing
August 28, 2019
We are big advocates of extended rear-facing, so we loved the Foonf. With it, we were able to rear-face our son until he was almost 5. At that point, he was 43" tall and had to switch to forward-facing even though he still had additional height in the shell. Now, other seats can rear-face taller children, so I would consider them as well.
ProsRigid LATCH install is easy for forward-facing, anti-rebound bar
ConsLower latch limits are low due to heavy weight of seat, 43" rear-facing height is not the heighest on the market now

We have 2 Foonfs and LOVE them. Iā€™m super diligent about car seat saftey and I feel great knowing my babies are riding in this seat. It lasts though 50 lbs rear facing so my 5.2 yr old is still rear facing in this seat !! šŸ™ŒšŸ™Œ it is the only seat on the market with the forward facing rigid latch and react system too , as well as having the anti rebound bar for rear facing ! Love these features . My kids are safe and happy newborn through age 5+ and theyā€™re hands down the easiest to install , and the straps do not twist šŸ’.

Sooooo safe
August 2, 2019
Weā€™ve had Britax car seats - marathon and advocate. Really liked both but wanted a safer option that can rear face until 50lbs. We were between nuna RAVA and Clek Foonf but after comparing both, we bought the Clek and love it. Iā€™m a pediatrician and think this is definitely the way to go. It is the best car seat Iā€™ve seen. My girls also sit about 5-6 inches higher in the car than with the other car seats so they can see so well out the window, they donā€™t even seem to mind.

super carseat
July 28, 2019
After being strictly a Chicco baby seat mom I was hesitant to go with this brand that was unknown to me but I am sooooo glad I did. These seats are the real deal. They are very heavy duty, well made. I seriously have no safety reservations about my children riding in these whatsoever bc I can tell that they are extremely strong carseats. I love that my baby sits up higher rear facing bc she used to scream constantly; now that she has been in the foonf she actually enjoys carrides as she can see out the window. Go figure. My oooonly thing with the seats is that due to the snugness of the belt setup, it is very difficult to clip in a baby with cloth diapers. But even so, had I known about that beforehand I still would have purchased bc its a small thing compared to having a safe seat.

Great car seat but difficult to install
July 17, 2019
This is a good quality car seat with no added flame retardants. However, it's quite difficult to install so it makes switching it to a different car quite difficult. It's also quite heavy and the seat cover can't be washed in a washer.

ConsHeavy Difficult to install

Worth the money!
July 15, 2019
This car seat was about 2X as expensive as our first convertible car seat. However, our 2.5 year old son complained that his butt hurt in the other so we took a chance on this one. So glad we did! He sits up so much higher in the car and can see out the windows so much better. He loves it! It also does not require as much recline which makes him more comfortable. Canā€™t beat Albeeā€™s rewards and free shipping!

solid as a rock!
July 15, 2019
We have LOVED this seat and our other Foonfs. They are super heavy but this translates to really solid in the car when installed correctly. The fabric is amazing and so easy to clean. I also love the overall look of this seat - it's not bulky and bumpy looking. Both of my kids use Foonfs and love them. So, although it doesn't look plush and comfy, they are comfortable and love their seats! The Shadow color is great out of the box but after 2+ years of use, it has faded in the sun on the seat in the car without (factory-installed) window tinting. This doesn't change our overall love of the seat though.

Clek Foonf-Mammoth, Non Toxic, Safe
June 27, 2019
We previously had a convertible Graco seat but after researching flame retardants and safety features we decided to go with the Clek Foonf in Mammoth Wool and couldnā€™t be happier! It is compact so fits in the center seat of most cars and can accommodate two next to each other or 3 across all with no flame retardants if you pick the wool option. The only negatives are that it is heavy and the seat isnā€™t easy to clean but for the safety features and non toxic benefits, it is worth it.

We love these seats and have purchased 3, one for each child. The quality is superb, but what sold us is the fabric. Being that itā€™s merino wool, itā€™s naturally flame resistant and not treated in flame retardants that off gas in warm cars! Love love love!

Good quality, but not for us
June 16, 2019
We could tell that this seat is built very well, and I'm sure it's the safest seat on the market. But, they seemed to skimp in some of the other details, in favor of making a cool/minimalist looking seat... the padding on the seat is almost non-existent, and the padding on the harness/main buckle felt a bit cheap. Also, no way to hold the harness back while we're putting our kid in, and if we want to use this for an infant in the future, we have to pay another $70 for the insert, and $20 for each cup holder. That's $110 more than the seat we ended up exchanging this for, the Nuna Rava, which includes all of the accessories, and seems to be a lot more comfortable for our kid.

Cleo is simply the best
May 31, 2019
I did my fair share of research when it came to picking out a convertible seat for my fast-growing daughter who was barely fitting in her infant car seat. Clek is simply the best - a tank of a car seat that manages to look modern, sleek and stylish at the same time. I hate gaudy things, so the look of the seat mattered almost as much as the safety rating. I feel like if you're looking at Clek, you already know what it's about. We've had it for almost a month so far and I'm very happy. It is almost magically spacious for my baby without taking too much room in the back. She loves being higher than before and being able to look out the window. Her head does drop forward a little when she's asleep, but I think that's the same with any car seat. It is expensive and heavy, but worth it if you want the best and don't plan to frequently move it from car to car. The manual was very helpful when we were installing it (rear-facing with seat-belts for us at this point.)

Best Convertible Car Seat on the Market
May 29, 2019
This car seat, like in its description, is the mother of all car seats. The safety factor with the crumple technology to absorb impact vs the baby is the main decision factor for me buying this seat. It also allows for rear facing for up to 50lbs to keep your child in the safest position for as long as possible.

My baby loves that he sits up high in the seat and can look out. We got the mammoth wool fabric to help keep him cool especially since we live in Texas and it stays so hot for so long here.

You definitely have to read the directions on how to install because it's more complex than just click it in. It is very heavy but I would expect it to be with a seat with steel structure.

Another reason we chose this seat was because it is slim and only takes up one seat and not impinging on a second in the backseat making the seat beside it unusable. You able to use All your seats in the backseat. Its much more comfortable ride for my baby than his infant seat and does not scream on car rides anymore.

It is worth the cost for safety factor alone and the fact that you will be able to use it for years as your baby grows.

Fantastic Price for a GREAT carseat!
May 26, 2019
When I was searching for where to buy a Clek Foonf from, I stumbled upon Albee Baby. The price was FAR better than any other retailer I found and I thought it was too good to be true. Not only did I do Google searches on Albee Baby as a company to make sure they were legitimate and that I would be getting a brand new, as-advertised carseat, but I also searched in my Car Seat Facebook group to see what their opinions were. Well, Albee Baby isn't too good to be true! They're a reputable company that not only offers great prices and products but also provide GREAT information about the products they sell.

Now, onto the Foonf! We have a Clek Fllo and like it, although it was hard to get a good install in our minivan seat because of how the base is shaped. We even got a mat-thingy (directly from Clek) and while it helped, it still wasn't easy to get a great install. So, while I liked the Clek brand, I wasn't totally in love with the Fllo for our vehicle. So when we were ready to purchase a second carseat, I decided to try the Foonf since I noticed the base was shaped a bit differently. I AM SO GLAD I DID! It fit FANTASTICALLY in our van, is easy to get a great, secure, and correct install, and my baby loves it and is so comfortable in it!

I highly recommend not only purchasing a Foonf, but definitely recommend buying it from Albee Baby!

April 7, 2019
This is our second Foonf. Our first had to be replaced after an accident and of course I didnā€™t hesitate to buy a Foonf again because it is an amazing car seat. It is heavy, but we donā€™t need to switch the seat between cars, so thatā€™s a non issue for us. Everything else is phenomenal from the anti-rebound bar, the high rear facing limits, the smooth belt tightening, the stylish look, the easy to clean fabric. We love this seat so much, we are about to buy our third Foonf.

Beautiful Car Seat
April 2, 2019
We purchased the Clek Foonf in Flamingo. This is a beautiful car seat that is sturdy and durable. We purchased the Mammoth fabric for one car seat, and although the Flamingo fabric isn't as pure, it is still free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase, and happy that this car seat can accommodate infant to 65 pounds.

Here's a summary from Clek of fabric differences:
Most Clek seats are made with Crypton Super Fabric, which are GREENGUARD Select Certified and provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odour-causing bacteria; and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants.

Here are the differences between our available fabric options:

The Noire models are made with a microsuede type Crypton Fabric, a synthetic fabric that is designed to resemble suede leather. It has a short pile (which is flatter than fleece) and a soft suede-like feel.

The solid colour models, such as Shadow and Flamingo, are made with a microfibre type Crypton Fabric. This is a fabric with a tightly looped top, similar to a towel, and features a terrycloth-like texture.

The grey editions, such as Thunder, Cloud, and Slate, are made with premium Crypton Fabric, which has a smoother texture, like a tailored suit fabric, and a more detailed heathered appearance.

The wool model, Mammoth, is a charcoal grey fabric made of 100% Australian Merino wool. It is made from ethically sourced, 100% non-mulesed wool that is naturally hypoallergenic, breathable, odour resistant, and temperature regulating. Mammoth is the ONLY fabric cover option that contains no added flame retardants. Mammoth is available on Foonf, Fllo, Oobr, and Infant-thingy.
ProsFree of several flame retardant chemicals Sturdy Beautiful color Easy to clean
ConsShort buckle length (difficult to buckle child) Flamingo and other crypton fabric options aren't as toxin-free as Mammoth wool option

Best Car Seat Ever!
March 1, 2019
I am so happy to have found this car seat! There are a handful of car seats on the market using wool as a natural fire retardant, healthier, non toxic choice for infants but I was hitting a wall trying to find one for a toddler until I ran across the foonf. I am so excited that there is a wool option for toddlers that just happens to be the best new innovative technology, narrow profile comfortable and practical car seat available. Thank you foonf! We will definitely go with the clek infant seat for our next child. I hope there is an adapter available to make it compatible with our BOB stroller...

We already have 2 for our twins in one car, and just got 2 more for the other car. As you can imagine quite expensive, but from our research appears to be the best available. The first time we had to assemble was a nightmare since the instructions were worthless, and not intuitive at all on how to do without them. But once you know the tricks the second set went quite smoothly. You definetly wouldn't want to have to move them from a car often however.

We have owned a foonf for the last couple years for my other son and have loved it! We always had him forward facing since he got it when he was almost 3, but the rear facing for our younger son is great as well! I like that he sits up higher so itā€™s essy to get him out. I cannot stress how safe this car seat is! My husband said it wasnā€™t too hard to install and the directions are easy to follow. Itā€™s an investment, but a worthy one!!
