Very Satisfied Customer!

I got this seat because of the "air" option. ---Was a very good deal! It works great!!
  • air option, easy access "in" and Out" ---
  • Not a lot of "bells and whistles" ---but has the "air" option --which is great!!

Not rear facing
April 30, 2013
We bought this carseat to install as a rear facing seat until our son was old enough to sit front facing. It DOESN'T work rear facing in our cars (both SUV's) and they suggest using a pool noodle to support it in the correct position. I'm not using a pool noodle to have my son be safe. I am saving the seat until he is old enough to sit front facing. Hopefully it will work better that way.

Cute, Seems comfortable...

Seat suits our purposes, seems comfortable, is stylish. The fact that its also rearfacing to 40# makes this seat the safest to us. We're pleased with our purchase. Bought two for both daddy's and grandparents' cars :) Awesum deal @ Albee baby for both!
  • Compact, stylish, pretty colors (we have the blue and a grey one). RF to 40#. Compact for most cars.
  • Compact but still doesnt fit RF in my car but thats probably due to the design of my car (Nissan Juke)...

My 22 month old loves this car seat! It fits her very well and seems very comfortable. Her other car seats are Britax ones but we wanted one for the babysitter's car that wasn't so expensive.

Car Seat

This car seat is padded and all fabric. Padding next to head makes comfortable sleeping position for baby!
  • Excellent product
  • Cup holder isnt deep enough to hold anything in place and not shaped for bottle

Nice, affordable car seat
February 23, 2013
We purchased this as a second convertible car seat for our almost three year old, and are pleased so far. We find the strap to tighten the harness a bit difficult to use - it seems to take a lot of tugging to get it nice and snug (as compared to our Britax Marathon), but we're hoping it with additional use it will tighten more smoothly. Otherwise it is fairly straightforward and seems comfortable.

Great Car Seat
January 11, 2013
I was looking for a cheap car seat that looked and felt like what I wanted. This car seat is it. I loved the price, color and design. I could not find it in blue anywhere else. It is simple and easy to install. Love love love.

Not as good as I thought:(

It Looks great when you get it out of the box but then installing it is another story. it is very hard to install without putting blankets underneath. Also rear facing position is very tilted back and that makes my little guy unhappy. I think it should be more upright especially because it isnt an infant carseat and it is suggested for children to stay rear facing till the age of 2 now. It will do for now since it is in our second car. The shipping on the product was great though. It got here quick.

Great Safety 1st car seat
December 17, 2012
Love this car seat so far good quality and soft material my son seems to like it. I love that it is compact enough to fit comfortably rear facing in the middle position of my Hyundai Accent. It was a little difficult to install. How to install it was easy to understand it was just extremely difficult to tighten the straps. But overall I'm very pleased with it.

Nice and cozy

I love the look and colors of this seat. My son is very comfortable and sleeps well in this seat. The onside air is great and gives me some reassurance. I have heard of many children getting hurt in car accidents due to their head being thrown around during impact. I definitely wanted a seat that had some head protection! However, my son is 10.5 months old and his legs are already too long when he is rear facing. I will definitely have to face him forward at a year old. I also had a little trouble with the belt. When I would pull to tighten it, only one side would tighten. Had this problem with both of the seats I bought (bought 2). Other than that, I really like the seat. Great buy and I would recommend it to others.

I got 2 great car seats under $150 total and free shipping!! I ordered them on tuesday and got them thrusday night!!!! All around great expierence! Highly recommended!
  • Great quality, Light weight and durable! Comfy for the kiddos and love all the color options for this brand! Great price!!

Comfortable and practical
June 2, 2012
(Relatively) easily to install, seems comfortable for my little guy, and no major complaints so far!
  • Love that I can keep him rear facing for a long time, seems pretty comfortable.
  • Soo big... Have to keep my passenger seat uncomfortably close to the dashboard. But I think this is just a fact of life with my car.

Good Basic Car Seat

I was looking for a safe seat that did not have so many bells and whistles and had a smaller footprint and I found it in this seat. It is comfortable and easy to install. I like it so much I am thinking of buying a third one
  • small footprint, comfortable, easy to install and adjust
  • weight limit could be higher

Amazing Value
March 11, 2012
So far, so good. This seat is ideal for smaller cars as it fits in the back seat well. It was pretty easy to install, but I took it to one of those car seat checks at a local hospital and found out it was too loose. You really do have to pull the middle back seatbelt tight.I also like that this particular car seat gets high ratings for its low amount of chemicals.
