The Graco Contender has been a popular car seat in the United States since it was first released. This convertible car seat is particularly well liked among our users because it’s lightweight, long lasting, and budget-friendly all at the same time. We wanted to see if the Canadian version lived up to the standards set

It’s kind of a rare day when a car seat that’s exclusive to Canada comes along. So we were more than excited to meet the new, Canada-exclusive, backless booster from bily, an acronym which stands for baby I love you. This seat is distributed by Elfe Juvenile products and has a lot of potential for three across scenarios, carpooling, and travel!
The design team at Graco is a master at creating booster seats that are easy to use, well-priced, long-lasting, and provide an excellent belt fit.
