Great seat!

This seat was a great purchase! I love the versatility in that it has the 5 point harness up to 80 lbs, then converts to a booster with a back and then a backless booster. It is relatively easy to install and does not take too much room in our vehicle. I would recommend this seat to a friend!

Normally I don't write reviews but since I received an email asking for one and I have a little time, I will. As my daughters 1st birthday creeped around the corner, we discussed getting her a new car seat. I went to EVERY store possible in our community, NO ONE had a pink car seat :( I came across this website and I found this car seat. This car seat is the same exact car seat I searched for at other stores but in stores it was listed 289.00+ and they did not have it in stock and I needed to "order" it in. Well since I had to "order" it anyways, why not price shop? Well when I saw the price for over a hundred dollars cheaper, I thought no way? Plus free shipping? What's the catch? Honestly there weren't any. I order this on Tuesday night and received it on Friday, just in time for Saturday's party. The price that was listed is all that I was charged. I am beyond satisfied. The car seat is not only safe, beautiful but comfy too!! Thank you Albeebaby!! You really impressed me and I will always recommend your site.

Graco 3in1 Booster car seat is excellent. Much better than I had.
April 26, 2016
The Graco 3 in 1 booster car seat was easy to put together and very easy to install in the car. It is much safer than the one I had. I really like that it can change from infant to just booster seat. It saves me a lot of money. I love it.
  • Easy to set up and use.
Best Uses
  • To safely transport my little ones when I have to take them in the car with me.

This was a replacement seat for a Britax Roundabout when I was in a car accident. My son absolutely loves it and so do I!! I feel like he is super safe and he says it's comfortable. I highly recommend it!!

OK seat - large footprint
April 20, 2016
I was hoping to "puzzle" this next to a Britax B-Safe infant seat, but it's way too wide to fit in the middle seat, even if there wasn't another seat next to it. It's full-featured, but the quality is a bit lacking, now that I'm used to Britax seats. My 3.5-year-old complains that the seat isn't padded enough and the (required) harness pads are uncomfortable. Can be hard to tighten and get those pads in the right place. Installation is fairly easy with LATCH; harder with belt, though the lock-offs are appreciated.

Great but

I love this seat! It came super quick too! At a very reasonable price. I love the fact that there is no rethreading of the straps as your child grows just move up the headrest. I was very skeptical of albeebaby so I used PayPal but turns out this is a wonderful caring company to shop with. Will be purchasing all baby future baby needs here!

Great seat for the price
January 7, 2016
This forward-facing harnessed seat is a great value with premium features that were important to me, such as lock-offs, easy to adjust head support and aNon-rethreading harness. This will keep my 4 year old harnessed until he is 80 lbs, then we will use it until 120 lbs as a booster. He is comfortable in the seat and it's love profile fits well in out large truck with a small bench seat.

Buy the Nautilus Instead
December 3, 2015
I've bought several seats from Albeebaby and really love their customer service.I recently bought this item after having been involved in a car accident. I previously had the Graco Nautilus which didn't include the front adjust harness (a few years old model).My son is almost 5 and can't undo the buckles on this seat. As another person posted, the top buckle is really hard to undo...even for me. He has trouble buckling in w/a coat. He could do/undo the Nautilus himself. No fun getting wet in the rain helping them in and out.The fabric is also not as nice (not as soft) and the arm rests are covered in fabric which will wear/get dirty quickly. Realistically, most kids will outgrow the seat by height before weight. If I had it to do over, I would have bought the Nautilus again. They even make the extended weight and front adjust harness in the Nautilus so not sure why they need this similar version. Also unsure why only Target sells the Nautilus with special head protection. Nothing against this company, but I'd probably buy that one.I thought about returning it, and wish I had before we used it. Honestly, didn't feel like dealing with shipping it back but now wish I had.
  • front adjust harness
  • extended 5pt harness weight
  • Really hard for child to buckle/unbuckle and not easily done one handed for parent.
  • The clip Latch. It doesn't include the button. You have to manually open the clip and attach to Latch which means you smash your hands. Not easy to switch between cars.

So far so good!

We have had an older version of this seat and bought another for our 2nd child ready to move to this seat from a convertible. So far this one has been great. Easy install with seatbelt and latch - I like the searbelt kickoff included in this version (not on older version we have). Children have been able to buckle themselves in too, which is helpful when you have 3. Albee was great to purchase through- fast free shipping easy purchase.

We have only had this car seat for a couple weeks but so far so good. Install was easy and the seat doesn't move at all, unlike some of the other seats we have had. My son is tall for his age so I like how this seat has a higher weight limit with the harness. My son seems very comfortable and enjoys sitting in his seat.

Just recieved this carseat this morning.. I was so excited to get it for our 1 yr old little boy. We upgraded from the Graco MyRide 65 and all I can say is WOW! With the Graco MyRide 65 my son slouched really bad and when he would fall asleep his head would always fall to one side. I haven't tried this seat in the car yet with him but I can tell you by him just sitting in it that he sits completely straight up and with the design of the surrounding head area that his head will not fall over. I snapped him in it just to see if he liked it (which he HATES any carseat) and all he did was smile and giggle. I am pretty sure he will enjoy our rides in the car now :) The cushioning/padding of this carseat is GREAT! I can't wait to install it in our vehicle to see how he does. Also, we have a 7yr old and 6yr old and I see myself purchasing 2 more for my vehicle soon.. I hate that with my car I can't use the high back boosters for them because they are all so bulky or wide with the added cupholders but I am pretty sure with this seat I can fit 3 in my backseat. I would definetly recommend this to anyone looking for a carseat that has perfect comfort/cushioning and made for proper support for your child. :):):):):)

We love this so far, we upgraded from the Graco MyRide 65. My son is 2.5 years old, weighs 36 lbs and is quite tall for his age. He fits great and seems very comfy. He has also been able to nap and still remain sitting up well which I was worried about. Wish it had 2 cup holders. He loves the little cubbie holes.
  • Great seat, comfy, fits very well in our van and doesn't seem too bulky at all
  • Needs 2 cup holders! Where do the snacks go?!?!

This car seat is wonderful! We own two already for both my boys and I wanted the same but "girly" for my daughter. This was an excellent choice, I love how everything can be taken apart to be cleaned and washed, along with still holding up in color and use overtime. Great investment for your little one!

Great Seat, worth every penny!
March 12, 2015
I researched seats extensively before I bought one to make sure I spent wisely. I am a very safety-concerned mama so safety features and ease of installation were important to me. This car seat is awesome! It is very easy to install and the no re-thread harness and adjustable head rest makes it super easy to adjust growing children or switching the seat between children. For a sea tbelt installation, the lock-off feature makes for a tight install, it doesn't budge at all! I also got a great install with the easy to use LATCH clips. Overall, this seat was worth every penny I spent on it and I'm so glad I purchased it!
  • No re-thread harness
  • Adjustable headrest
  • Seat belt lock-offs
  • Simple LATCH connectors
  • Not too heavy or bulky
  • Strap pads are REQUIRED for harnessed use and can be uncomfortable if not positioned correctly. (All the more reason to READ YOUR MANUAL and be sure you are correctly installing and using your seat :) )

This seat is very easy to install because of the belt lock offs. My Suburban is not latch compatible, so I needed to find a seat that had lock offs for around $200. The only other seats that had lock offs was anywhere from $300-600+. I paid less than $200 for this seat with a 15% off coupon, great value. Graco is a great brand, their seats are safe, comfortable and cute. It is a bit heavy and I wish the print was on the seat cover itself instead of just the insert, but it's still adorable. My 3 year old loves her new seat and says it's comfy. I highly recommend this seat, we will be purchasing another for daddy's car!

Can this carseat be rear facing? We bought this for our 1 year old son 22lbs. But would feel safer if it could be rear facing.
