Received this item quickly. The fabric is very classic/neutral but not boring. Soft materials and lots of bells and whistles. I chose this for the easy non rethread straps, one button handle, rapid remove cover (because that is such a pain!) and of course the great Albee price. $130 is a steal.
  • All the features of a more expensive model
  • Good fabrics
  • Great recline
  • The only caveat is that it?s an older model.

I love this thing! We have a maxi Cosi Pria that I love and then bought a Diono for second car, as I didn’t want to spend a fortune on one we use rarely.
The diono one didn’t work, baby is 11 months old and was “too lose” in it, meaning any bump would wake him up. Probably good for older kids. We had a very painful 5h car ride to the beach…
I don’t think the Graco solved all of our issues, but it is very comparable to the Pria.
Baby obviously threw up on it while I was getting it ready to put in the car, so to the washer it went… it washed great!
The options to incline are good (you do need to unbuckle it from car to change though) and it’s aesthetically appealing (that was important for hubby since this goes in his car).
I also like that I can face baby forward safely as this has a setting based on weight that allows you to do so.
It doesn’t have the little strap holders on the sides that the Pria has, but I would buy this one over the Pria if I had to do it again just because it is such a good price for the quality

I got this for my daughter before a road trip. I thought she’d appreciate an upgrade from her infant seat. She loved it! It looks and feels nice, but it has a few features I really like that aren’t on my son’s safety 1st convertible seat. There’s a latch that helps you tighten the seat with just pushing down. No yanking the strap to get it tighter. Also the seat is easier to take out with the push of a button. It has an easy recline setting so during our trip I could lay her to the most reclined setting to get better sleep without uninstalling the seat!
  • Easy to tighten the seat because of the special latch.
  • Easy recline settings and level indicator.

We have a Britax but we didn’t want to transfer it from car to car. We got this one and it feels better than my Britax. Installation was easy, I have an older car so I used the seat belt. It has nice padding and I love that it comes already with the cup holders.

Better then the Graco 4Ever
February 24, 2021
I purchased this car seat for my husband’s truck, but ended up keeping it for mine. My 1 year old prefers this seat over his Graco 4Ever. It’s a bit heavy, but it’s easy to install. Overall it’s a great choice.
  • Comfortable and easy to install
  • Heavy

I researched everywhere for my baby’s new car seat until I found this gem. I had previously purchased a Maxi Cosi which my baby didn’t like I guess it was uncomfortable for him. When I would place him there he’d start crying...then we got this one and he LOVED it. It’s very nice, comfortable and very easy to install. The only con is it could recline more but I guess you can’t have it all. I’m very happy with my purchase.

We bought these for our twin girls after they grew out of their infant seats. They were easy to install we tried them in both vehicles a x3 bmw and quad cab dodge Dakota. They don’t recline as much as I’d hoped and so when they fall asleep it looks pretty uncomfortable.

I love this car seat!!! Such an easy install, very easy to figure out which recline the seat needs to be on. Love the indicator that tells you if the seat is safe once installed. My baby absolutely loves this seat. She has hated her last two car seats and would scream and stiffen her body and fight me when buckling her. She loves this seat. No more crying or fighting. She’s excited to go bye bye. It’s very comfortable. Very happy with this seat and got a great deal on it too!

Absolutely perfect

I purchased this item for my 10 month old who still could fit in her infant carrier but was getting too heavy to carry in the carrier. After lots of reading various carseat safety reviews and blogs, I was a little nervous about whether the EZ-latch that comes with the "Platinum" seat would live up to the hype. But it did! This carseat is a breeze to install with <1" wiggle room in all directions. Compact front to back even in most reclined (newborn) setting and fit into my 2014 Honda Civic rear facing with plenty of room to spare. I had to unlatch the carseat to adjust the recline angle and then once again, was able to tighten the latch using the EZ-latch super fast. Carseat is light compared to the Chicco Nextfit that I have in the other car but still has steel reinforced frame. I like the color/look/feel of the material on this seat but I also feel that the colorways for most of Graco's seats are a little loud for my taste. This neoprene type of material does seem to have the potential to pill or snag (i.e. on sneaker velcro) over time but maybe I might be proven wrong. I like that the cover is easy to take off in the event that we need to wash it. My 4 yr old sat in the seat also "just to see" and also found it comfortable. If I had to buy a seat again, I absolutely would buy this one again.
  • EASY installation, light, compact, attractive
Best Uses
  • Compact car, everyday carseat, or any situation in which carseat may have to be transferred between cars (travel, grandparents, babysitters)
  • Cupholders are not optional so if looking to sit 3 across, might get in the way.
