Love but have a dislike.
May 15, 2018
I won this from Dione this year. We are now letting my son start to transition into a seatbelt versus a five point harness.( we have in my car the radiance RXT all in one car seat ) I really like this high back booster seat it is light weight comfy for him and he can see more around him. However I have one major issue with that you cannot attach it to the car for security in the seat( at lest it did not come with anything.) I have sent a message to see if there is anyway to attach it.(waiting on a reply). It only has the seat belt to hold the seat in place. At this point, I would not recommend this product to anybody as it does not secure to the seat for protection. I do see that they have a new product that will allow you to attach it to your seat.

Preformed as expected in a wreck
April 29, 2018
I bought two of these seats for my 5 year old when she out grew her harassed seat. I was Leary to move her to a high back booster. We were rear ended yesterday by a driver going around 40 mph. This seat helped keep my daughter secure. I am more than happy with it and will order another one when insurance money comes in.

Great car seat
March 5, 2018
I am a mother of 5 children. All of my children are adults now! I have a nephew that loves to visit his auntie and I had to purchase a car seat for him. I was amazed at all of the changes that have been made for car seats. Very easy to install, easy to clean, lightweight and cup holders!! I am very happy with my purchase of a 2-1 high back booster seat!!

Comfortable and Easy
January 4, 2017
I had the opportunity to try this seat for the weeSpring Parent Panel and I was excited to see how it worked for my 7 year old. I usually dread car seat installation, especially the first time, but this seat is easy to snap together and the directions are easy to follow. It is also very lightweight and I think even my son could carry it himself, which would be useful as he sometimes needs to go home with friends and has to bring his seat with him to school. I also like that we have the option to use it as a high back or just as a booster. This seat is also very comfortable and I like the side-impact safety features. The cons are that it does not work well in my car with another seat next to it. I had difficulty reaching the buckle and my son definitely couldn't get to it, both because of the arm rest and the car seat next to it. I also tend to prefer boosters that latch in for every day use, which this does not. All in all, I'm happy to have this seat for travel as well as for family and friends' vehicles, or as a spare for friends riding in our car.

Great product at a fantastic price
December 23, 2016
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster! I was in search of a second booster for my husbands truck and wasn't wanting to spend an arm and a leg on a new one. So when this opportunity came along I knew it was perfect timing. I love the ease of cleaning the seat and the security it provides. We haven't owned long enough to attest to its durability yet. But I am a fan and will continue to use. The one thing I don't like is that the cup holders don't fold in on themselves or extend any further. My child is thin and his legs hang over the edges sometimes... I can't imagine it would work well with a larger child.

Great Quality, Great Value
December 15, 2016
I had the opportunity to test the Diono Hip High Back Booster as part of the WeeSpring Parent Panel. I currently have two Diono Rainer Car Seats and I love the brand! I needed a booster seat for my car to help pick up my nephew from school. The seat arrived without any instructions; however it was super easy to figure out. The seat was light weight and very easy to take in and out Of my car. I used the seat primarily without the back, but I did test out the seat with the back and I loved how easy it was to adjust. I also really liked the dual cup holders that are built into the seat which the Rainer does not have. Like my other Diono products that I own, you could tell that it is a high quality seat. My nephew thinks it is very comfortable and I will definitely be using it for my daughter when she meets the requirements of using the seat. Overall, I am very pleased with this booster and definitely would recommend it to others.

Sturdy, comfortable and would recommend
December 15, 2016
I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel, thank you! This is our second Diono, but first booster type seat. It is easy to put together and lighter than our other seat. I would travel with this one if need be. My older son (9) tried it and liked the comfort, but be didn't like the head rests, too conversing for him. However, my younger son (5.5) tried it out and loved it! We haven't needec to clean it, but it would be easy to. Great design overall, I would recommend for younger booster seat kids for sure. Diono has great customer service too!

The perfect backup booster seat!
December 14, 2016
I received this booster seat as a member of WeeSprings Parent Panel. I have two kids and we use a Diono Radian for my 4yr old son. My daughter is still in a 5 pt harness car seat, but i was excited to be able to test this out as a backup carseat for those times when we need to drive one of her friends around, or for use when traveling. The seat is extremely lightweight and is a snap (literally) to put together. It took me less than 2 minutes to read the manual and assemble it since it's basically just two pieces that lock together. My daughter tested it out inside so we could adjust the headrest to the right place (also super easy!), and she loved the padding, nice roomy cupholders, and the overall fit. It's very easy to install in the car and the seatbelt guides make it easy to know you've done it right. Overall i'm very pleased with this seat. Looking forward to using it on some upcoming travel - this will definitely save me some backaches!!

Excellent fit in both comfort and convenience!
December 14, 2016
I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel And I LOVED it! My son is picky because he doesn't want it to look like a "baby" seat, and this one doesn't! He approved! We even traveled with this one and it made it through airport security and baggage claim unharmed-it is constructed very well! The cup holders give it the convenience every child (and parent!) needs. Did I mention it is lightweight? Great choice in booster seats!

Good lightweight booster seat
December 14, 2016
I had the opportunity to try out the Diono Hip High Back Booster seat as part of the Weespring Parent Panel. I am using the seat as an extra in our second car, and it is great to no longer have to transfer boosters back and forth! My six-year old finds the seat comfortable and easy to get into and out of, and I like how easy it was to set up! The seat belt guide clip was helpful in getting the restraint positioned properly. In general, I do prefer car and booster seats that are LATCH compatible, and I took away one star because there was not an option for attaching this seat in that way.

Love the simplicity!
December 13, 2016
I received this booster as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. My 5 year old son's other car seat was so bulky. I was eager to use this one. I love the simplicity and clean lines of this car seat. It's lightweight, which is great for travel, easy to set up, and so easy to use. My son loves it! The cup holders are also very convenient. A great product that I highly recommend.

Perfect, safe seat for my 7-year old
December 13, 2016
I have a tall 7-year-old and the Diogo Hip 2-in-1 High Back Booster seat's adjustable head rest was a winner! My child was very comfortable during our 6-hour long drive to Grandmas for the holidays. I was worried a seat for this size of a child would be heavy and cumbersome, nope, not at all. It is light enough for a woman of a small frame to easily change into friend's or family's car for excursions on the town. It is constructed well and super sturdy. The 2 cup holders are very useful, even to hold our boy's legos! Assembly was a breeze as I did it myself, while my husband was at work! I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I love it and the price point so much that I am going to buy my 5-year-old one as well!! Thanks for a quality product.

Tangible Excitement
December 12, 2016
The excitement in the air was tangible when this was delivered for our seven year old son. We have a larger than average family so when we were offered to review this product compliments of the weeSpring Parent Panel we were thrilled. It came out of the box in two pieces, how simple! After reading the "manual" and interlocking the seat and back together we took a good look at it.

The first thing I noticed was a small part of the padding on the back portion had been flattened by pressure of the seat upon it in the box, it was a minor thing and it corrected itself within a day or two. The next thing noticed was the composite of the booster itself. I am unsure what I expected however for a brand seemingly so highly spoken of the appearance of the plastic wasn't flattering. I noticed this because of the cup holders on either side of the seat. While cup holders are a great feature these are not retractable or removable. This isn't a great feature for us as we have five car seats installed at all times. The booster cover does have soft padding to it however I feel for comfort no seat we have ever had, has had adequate padding.

Now to consider how this seat was going to work for our son. It is lightweight so moving it between vehicles is no hassle. The height adjustment is super simple and only takes one hand and a second to adjust. He does not complain of any discomfort while in the seat and it does its job of keeping the seatbelt in the proper position. The armrests on this seat are not adjustable and are too low for him to actually use for resting his arms, no big deal to him however I would say a bit of a design flaw. Overall our son is very happy with his new seat. As our kids age they tend to feel babied having to use a special seat in the car, I actually think he may like this one so much he may forget he doesn't technically need it once his birthday rolls around. Bonus? Absolutely!

Well-Rounded Booster Seat
December 12, 2016
We have purchase many car seats over the years starting from an infant car seat when our son was first born to most recently, a backless booster seat for our now 8 year old son. I was excited to receive the Diono Hip High Back Booster seat from the weeSpring Parent Panel to see how it would compare to the rest. Overall we really like this booster seat. My son said it was more comfortable then his old one and he liked the support the high back gave him (more comfortable for resting too) :) He compared it (in a good way) to a big boy version of his little sister's convertible car seat. The shorter arm rests gave more room for his legs to move around (a plus) but he did miss having the full armrests too. Also a plus - double cup holders! Somehow, we always seem to need more than one. This booster is also really easy to install. You pretty much snap it out of the box and use the optional seat belt thread-thru and you're done! A comment about the seat belt thread-thru - it did make the seat belt more difficult to belt as it puts more tension on it. I had to help my son belt it at first. Also the booster seat seems secure but note that there is no LATCH system with it - it is only secured to the car with the seat belt. One last comment - the instructions are actually located on the opposite side of the seat then what the picture on the box shows. Not a big deal, just good to know.

I've been using just the booster part of this seat. It's lightweight and it easy for my kids to buckle their seat belts because it's slightly indented at the sides, which I appreciate.

Light, handy booster!
December 11, 2016
I received this booster as s gift from the WeeSpring parent panel. The very first thing I noticed was how light it was! It made installation a breeze. This booster snapped together in seconds and we popped it in my car and had my seven year old test it out. She likes it. It's comfortable and easily moved from car to car if need be. Works great!
As a side note, I had to talk to customer service about shipping, and they were wonderful to work with! Very professional and helpful!

Great Booster
December 11, 2016
I received this product as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. It's a great booster for older kids. The seat has nice fabric that seems like it will be easy to clean if there are any spills. It fits in our minivan well and fits my 8 year old as well as my 6 year old. The headrest is great for big kids who still fall asleep in the car sometimes. It would be nice if it had tethers, but overall I highly recommend it.

Lots of positives
December 9, 2016
This booster has many positives. It was very easy to put together and very durable. Adjusting the height was a breeze. It is quite large so I was wondering how it would fit in the car but it worked well in both our 4Runner as well as our Jetta wagon.

My 9-year-old thought it was really comfortable and liked how the head are kept his head from falling over if he fell asleep in it. He did mention that sometimes his arm would get stuck in the area between the head rest and the main body. If you adjust the height, you can end up with a gap between the head rest and main body of the seat. He said that sometimes his shoulder would get caught in that area. I think he might be ready to loose the back part and just sit in the booster portion, that would fix the problem.

Overall, a great seat that's comfortable and provides great protection. My son and I were both happy with it. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!

Great for older kids!
December 9, 2016
The seat seems sturdier (thicker plastic) than our Graco turbo booster. It is well cushioned and comfortable. The headrest has a variety of positions which will accommodate many differently sized children. My 9 year old has a great fit in this booster! My 4 year old doesn't weigh quite enough yet but will have a nice belt fit when he is booster ready at 5. My only complaint is that our headrest wouldn't click into place. Customer service has been great though and is sending a replacement seat. I hope to see a slimmer booster in the near future for easier 3-across seating. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!

Excellent, well made and lightweight seat!
December 9, 2016
I've been using this seat for a while now and there are many things I love about it. First of all its lightweight. I have lifting restrictions, this seat is not heavy or bulky at all which makes it perfect for moving between vehicles. That being said, it's high quality, well put together and seems like a very safe car seat. I love all the side impact protection. The headrest is very easy to raise and lower and the seat is very easy to put together and convert to a backless booster. My daughter finds the seat very comfortable. I like the attached cup holders because they can't get lost, or get thrown. This does make the cup holders slightly harder to clean however. I like that it has two cup holders, big sis can use one or little sis can have a drink and a snack! The covers are very easy to remove and put back on, which makes cleaning very simple. It's also great that there is pocket for the owners manual which is awesome if someone needs to use it that doesn't normally use it, like grandparents. The fit guides are right there to help them out. All in all a great seat that I feel good about placing my child in. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!

Great Booster for an Older Child
December 9, 2016
As a member of the weeSpring parent panel, I was given the opportunity to try the Hip High Booster. This is my review. I hope you find it useful. First of all, it was very easy to put together and it's lightweight, making it very easy to transfer it from one car to another. This is ideal since my child often spends the day with her aunts and grandparents. Rather than disassembling my current carseat/booster, I now have a booster that is easily stored and transferred (when needed) into other cars. It also breaks down easily and can be stored when not in use. So, the advantages of this car seat is that it is lightweight, easy to put together and install, and a great booster that can be temporarily and easily moved from car to car. Some drawbacks I noticed were that the padding seemed rather thin compared to my current carseat and booster. I was reluctant to use it for a recent weekend car trip because I was worried it would become uncomfortable while we were traveling. My child has not commented on the comfort as I've been using this for short commutes (to and from school, errands), so I'm thinking my worries are unfounded. Secondly, my child is 5 years old and on the shorter, smaller side compared to other kids. This booster is secured by a lap belt. My current carseat I am using has the 5 point harness and because she's only a little over 50 pounds, I feel more secure with her in a car seat. She loves to use this booster because it makes her feel like a big girl, but for the time being, until she gets a little heavier and older, I'll continue with my current carseat. This booster will be used when ever the kids spend time with my parents and will be used in their car. I like that she will outgrow her current carseat and will grow with this booster. I would recommend it to my friends who have older children in need of a booster, because it is very reasonably priced. It also has an adjustable head rest and integrated cup holders.

Diono Hip High Back Booster
December 9, 2016
I received this seat as part of the WeeSpring Parent Panel - thank you! The seat was easy to put together and install. It is so easy to raise the head rest - my 7 year old is very tall for her age and needed it raised. She loves sitting in the seat (she hated boosters before) and finds it very comfortable. It easily fits in the third row and captains chairs of our Honda Odyssey and our Toyota Sienna. I would recommend this seat to others!

Great car seat
December 8, 2016
I received this seat as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. My 5, 8, and 10 year olds all fit in this seat! My 8 year old is the one who is using the seat currently. She has a sensory processing disorder and it is often hard to find things she thinks are comfortable. Car seats have been especially difficult. This seat has solved that problem. She says that it is so comfortable she could sleep in it. It is very easy to adjust and install. My only complaint is that the seat is a little wide and that makes it difficult to fit all my car seats in my van.

A solid carseat: easy to use with a few cons
December 7, 2016
I received this booster as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. It was good timing, as my 7 year old wanted to move out of her car seat with a 5 point harness. The Diono was very easy to assemble--just one step of aligning two hooks and snapping the car seat together. While my husband feels that all car seats are intuitive, I was very disappointed not to have any kind of manual or document included in the box to show how the Diono should be set up to best fit my child, how the seat belt should fit through the back of the car seat and the proper placement in our vehicle. I understand it's downloadable online, but to me, that's a necessity of the packaging. The head support is probably the nicest feature of this car seat. It's easily adjustable and has a great deal of padding--so much so that my 9 year old tried the seat and found it too narrow to be comfortable. My 7 year old thought it was very comfortable. As others have said, the Diono is a sizable booster and with the cup holders, it will fill the space in your car. The material feels pretty standard. It's nothing noteworthy to look at, but feels like it would clean easily and it would not show a lot of stains. We have always purchased Britax car seats, which I feel are comparably of higher quality (and certainly, of higher price). Related to other car seats, the Diono does it's job: it's a sturdy car seat that is easy to use, easy to clean and is very functional for a child.

Diono Hip High Back Booster gets 2 Thumbs Up!

I am a Diono Radion owner, and it is a very nice car seat, but heavy. I loved how light the Diono Hip High Back Booster seat is. I can easily move it from car to car with no problem at all. My 5 and 9 year old are both able to fit perfect in it as it back adjust so easily. This is a great booster seat with a great price.

While my husband feels that all car seats are intuitive, I was very disappointed not to have any kind of manual or document included in the box to show how the Diono should be set up to best fit my child, how the seat belt should fit through the back of the car seat and the proper placement in our vehicle. I understand it's downloadable online, but to me, that's a necessity of the packaging.

The head support is probably the nicest feature of this car seat. It's easily adjustable and has a great deal of padding--so much so that my 9 year old tried the seat and found it too narrow to be comfortable. My 7 year old thought it was very comfortable. As others have said, the Diono is a sizable booster and with the cup holders, it will fill the space in your car. The material feels pretty standard. It's nothing noteworthy to look at, but feels like it would clean easily and it would not show a lot of stains.

We have always purchased Britax car seats, which I feel are comparably of higher quality (and certainly, of higher price). Related to other car seats, the Diono does it's job: it's a sturdy car seat that is easy to use, easy to clean and is very functional for a child.

Good, versatile product. Straightforward to set up and use
December 6, 2016
I got this as a gift for being a part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I like this car seat; I think the thing I like best is the ease of use. I had to take the headrest out of our SUV but then it is just placed on the seat. Once my kid was in it, it is simple to secure and the car seat doesn't have much movement. I like that it goes up to 120lbs and that the height adjusts and can also convert to a backless booster.The only reason I'm deducting one star is although I felt comfortable with the security of my kid, I had a booster in previously that had tethering. It may be just a subjective thing, but I'd feel better if it were anchored in some way. Overall, I would recommend this product. It's nice to have something that easily can go in and out (if necessary).

Great Convertible Booster
December 6, 2016
I received this booster seat as a sample from the weeSpring Parent Panel! Thank you guys so much for letting me test it!I got this seat for my almost 9-year-old to use in our 2nd car. I loved the ease of use with this seat. It was very to put in the car, put in the trunk when not using, and it's also pretty sturdy. It's much sturdier feeling than the cheaper one that I have in my other car.I personally am not a fan of such dark colors, but my husband is all about black, gray, and silver, so this dark seat fits right in with this aesthetics. That's a positive, since this one goes in his car.The price is very low for a nice sturdy seat like this. I like how it can convert from a high back to a backless booster in just a couple of clicks. It was easy to use the seatbelt to strap him in, and he can do it himself comfortably.My main "con" with this seat is that the weight starts at 40 pounds. My other booster seat's weight limit started at 30 pounds. My son, even though he will be 9 next month just _barely_ meets the weight limit for this seat, so if I had gotten it 6 months ago he wouldn't have been able to use it. This is just a personal con, of course, it just depends on your child's weight. My daughter, who is 5, could already sit in this seat, as she already weighs 42 pounds!All-in-all, great seat, sturdy, would buy again for my other younger children if I need another.

Excellent seat for older children
December 6, 2016
I was excited to receive the Diono Hip High Back Booster as a part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. From the moment we opened the box and quickly slipped the back into the seat portion, both of my children were excited about the new seat. While my two year-old is not ready to be out of a 5-point harness yet, however, she tried it out in the living room and was quite pleased. With the sturdy construction, I have no doubt she'll be enjoying this seat in a few years from now.My 7.5 year old weighs 55lbs and is 52" tall. The booster was simple to install and easy to adjust the back to meet her current height, with more adjustments available for further growth! She stated that the seat was extremely comfortable and she liked that the side-impact padding gave her a comfy place to rest her head during a long road-trip (she's a chronic car-sleeper still!). The affixed arm rests do not interfere with the seatbelt, as opposed to the removable ones on our last booster that we detached and never used again. The high back booster is also so sturdy when put together that even the 7 year old easily moved it from our 3rd row to the 2nd row in the vehicle without the bottom detaching. That is a huge plus in my book! The biggest challenge with the Diono Hip High Back is the width. The built-in cup holders are the biggest contributor to making the seat take up more real estate than our past model. With the Diono and our 2 year old's convertible car seat, it would be difficult for an adult to sit between the two. Our older booster had cup holders that retracted into the base of the seat when we needed additional room. I did notice that when the high-back was extended to max height, it reduced my rear-visibility somewhat.While we haven't had a chance to test the seatbelt placement strap for use when the high back is removed, we are looking forward to utilizing that feature.

Sturdy Booster for an Older Child
December 5, 2016
I had the opportunity to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I hope you will find this review of the Diono hip high back booster useful. This booster had a lot of great features. It was very easy to assemble and is very light weight so I find it to be very portable. It is easily installed into cars and the instructions were very clear. This booster comes in handy because my kids often spend the day with their aunts and their grandparents. Rather than disassemble my carseat/booster (which can be an ordeal), I feel good about leaving this booster with my parents in their car as they go on adventures. I love the slate color and my child loves the integrated cup holders. Her water bottle and her snack cup fit great in the holders and treats are within easy reach. As for some concerns I have about this booster: I noticed that the seat is not as insulated as my current carseat. I had just received this booster for review and was planning a day trip to Disneyland. I was reluctant to install this booster in my car for the trip because I was not sure how comfortable it would be for the 2 hour long commute. Also, my current carseat has the shoulder and lap belt harness which I find more secure compared to the over the shoulder seatbelt that this booster offers.My child likes sitting in this booster. She is always striving to be like her older sister, and this booster makes her feel more grown up. I was concerned that it would not be comfortable due to the thin padding, but she has not complained about it. She likes that the cup holders are within reach. I'm not yet ready to make this her daily booster, but rather will use it for an extra booster that will travel between us and my parents, who often watch my children. My child, who is 5 and is the primary user of this booster, is small and I feel more secure to have her in a seat with a 5 point harness. She will grow into this booster soon and enjoys using it with her grandparents.

Love this booster! So do the kids!
December 5, 2016
We received this booster from the WeeSpring Parent panel to review and couldn't love it more! My daughters actually fight over who gets to sit in it and refer to it as the "Comfy seat". I love it because it was easy to set up, very solid design, easy to take apart to clean and no little nooks and crannies where food can get stuck. The kids love it because its so comfortable! I will be buying another one as soon as my little one needs a booster. I would highly recommend this booster.

Good seat for the price
December 5, 2016
I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I really like how versatile this car seat is and how it goes to a backless booster for my older child. The fabric and material seems well built. I like that it has two cup holders but wish they were set apart a little further. My kiddo ha a slim build and his legs go over the cup holders. This car seat is not too heavy and is easy to install.

First, let me say that I have purchased so many car seats/boosters I feel like I've bought a new one every year since my LO was ready for one. I currently own two booster seats and although they "get the job done" none compare to this. Most importantly my guy is comfortable! In addition to comfort it is lightweight yet has a sturdy feel to it and installation is so simple it's basically impossible to install the seat incorrectly. Another great feature is that the installation was so much quicker than any other seat I've purchased. This seat has an adjustable headrest so the seat can grow with your child. My son was most excited about the 2 cup holders! "We can bring snacks AND a drink when we go to Uncle's house!" he exclaimed. The seatbelt path works perfectly, it doesn't constantly slip out which is such a breath of fresh air! Trust me, it's the little things when you have a young child! The seat Dowsnt shift either, once we put it in we went for a ride and took a few sharp turns to test it out and my son and the seat stayed secure which is the number one concern. Pair all the aforementioned points with the fact that it's affordable, it has full body side impact support instead of just head support with a straight back AND the wide ranged weight and height capacity means my children will be as safe and secure as possible, for as long as they need the seat. As a parent, I highly recommend this seat.Thanks SO MUCH to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!

Great Booster!
December 4, 2016
The whole family loves this booster seat! I usually struggle with installing and using kids boosters but I am able to use this one without issues or any help from my husband which of coarse he likes! It is very simple to put together and It is very light weight for its size, yet it's still very sturdy while using. The adjustable back gives for plenty of room to grow and the large head rest is really nice. My daughter says it's really comfortable and she loves the 2 built-in cup holders. The material is easy to wipe clean as well. It's a great booster seat for my daughter and I will likely buy one for my son when he is old enough as well. I received this booster as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel.

I received this booster as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel -- thanks weeSpring and Diono!We have used a few different car seats over the years -- and this one stands up to all of them. It is comfortable, easy to open and close quickly (which is nice in the cold!), and looks good in our car. ;) I like booster part and so does my daughter.I would definitely recommend this to a friend -- or even gift it!

Great booster seat!
December 4, 2016
This is a really great booster seat! My 8 year old loved it and was so excited to try it out. He's tried lots of car seats/boosters and he commented on how soft and cozy this one was. As a mom, I loved how easy it was to install and how leightweight it was when I transferred it from my car to my husbands. I also like the simple gray look to the seat. It was easy to adjust for height and I felt that my son was secure while riding in it. It really is a great booster and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a highback booster. The Diano name is one known for safety and that makes me feel secure. We received this seat as a part of the weespring parent panel.
