Another Great Seat to the Britex Lineup!
October 6, 2022
I am borderline obsessive when it comes to researching important purchases, and there are few things more important than the safety of my children, so carseats are always a thoughtful buy in my family. Which is why I was absolutely thrilled when the Stellar Review Panel asked if I wanted to try out the Britex High Point 2-Stage Belt-Positioning Booster Seat, because not only is my kiddo ready for a more big kid booster seat, but I absolutely respect and trust the Britex brand.
First off, the seat arrives in two separate pieces (the Booster and the Back) along with two sturdy removable cup holders. Connecting the Booster to the back is a snap (literally). In fact, everything about this Booster Seat is user friendly. I honestly think I could probably remove this booster from one car and reinstall it in another in under two minutes. Maybe in 90 seconds if I really pushed (and had my second cup of morning coffee that day haha). It truly is THAT simple. The most time consuming aspect of the first install was reading the manual front to back (but again... I'm a tad OCD).
We've only been using the seat for a short time but here is what I like about it so far:
*Simple/quick install (perfect for trading between dad's/grandparents/babysitter/friend's car).
*The cup holders are SO sturdy and so easy to remove should I need to clean out in inevitable kiddo junk that I am sure they will get grimed up with.
*It will grow with my little for years to come (weight range is 40-120 lbs and my kid is just under 50 lbs so we should get a lot of use out of this).
*The bright red seat belt guides are easy to follow or to explain to someone who might be moving the seat for the first time without me present (like a babysitter or whatnot).
*Attaching and removing the seat's connector to my vehicle's anchor is super quick and smooth.
*Visually, the two toned muted purples are lovely both from an adult's perspective and to a child's eye.
*Did I mention that I love Britex? They have set the standard for carseats for years.
Here's what my kiddo likes about it:
My preschooler has declared the Seat "very comfy" and she was tickled pink to have not only her own cup holders, but arm rests as well. Her stamp of approval goes a long way when it comes to how pleasant or unpleasant a car ride can be. She also is a fairly sensory sensitive kid and she happens to like the feel of the seat cover. Which is apparently naturally flame resistant and fully washable, which is a huge bonus cause again.... kids are inherently rather gross and will surely gunk it up eventually, and I love that I can safely wash the cover.
Finally, the drawbacks to the Highpoint booster seat. The only complaint I have thus far is that I wish the cup holders were just a TAD bigger. While they are able to fit my kid's 11 ouncs Pura water bottle with room to spare, they are SLIGHTLY too small to accomodate the 16 ounce Thermoflask bottles unless you remove the little rubber sleeve, then they can just barely squeeze in. Granted, we have only had the seat for about a week and other drawbacks may come to light over time (and I will try to remember to loop back and update my review after a few more months of use), but as it stands I am absolutely satisfied with the Britex Highpoint booster seat!
