The search for a booster seat with a tall shoulder belt guide is often a challenging quest. There aren’t too many models that go past the 21 or 22 inch top guide position, so when one comes along that has an unusually tall top position, we’re all ears. The Safety 1st Store ‘n Go Sport
At Car Seats for the Littles, we draw a pretty hard line around what we will and won’t review. Please act surprised when I say that 99% of the time, our reviews are solely about car seats. So when a product comes along that isn’t a car seat, and you’re seeing it here, that’s because
Cosco’s newest offering is a backless booster seat that comes in at a ridiculously reasonable price! The Rise retails for $9.99. That’s right, it’s less than $10!

Each year since 2009, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released their IIHS booster ratings. In the past, these ratings were based primarily on the fit of the 6 year old crash test dummy. This year’s results were based on a new dummy.
When our Facebook group began in 2011, we had no idea how much we’d grow. We couldn’t envision reaching 10,000 members, let alone the 250,000 member milestone that we reached this week! Our story started with a commitment to helping caregivers select, install, and use their car seats properly; it has expanded.
The second part of our journey through the ABC Kids Expo 2017 started once again with a visit to the coffee cart/food court (more about the first part here). Since we were here last year, that area of the Convention Center has undergone a significant remodel, and it’s much nicer now! I know you were all wondering, so there you go.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again! No, not just the time of fabulous fall weather and impending holidays, it’s time to enter a giant expo hall full of car seats and assorted baby gear to check out the 2017 ABC Kids Expo!
The addition of the JPMA show to the lineup of expos this year translates to fewer car seat manufacturers attending ABC Kids, so we’re cramming most of our schedule into one really full day but spreading it into two great articles for your reading pleasure.
Every time a new car seat arrives for review, we meet the box with excitement. Often, we share pictures with our team and start chatting about how easy or hard it is to install, what the covers are like, how our kids fit in the seat, and a whole lot more.
Our daughter’s elementary school was a place where parents would park their cars and then walk children into school. However, they recently opened an optional dropoff line. I’m grateful that it’s optional because some days, getting my kiddo out of the car takes quite a while. There are stray Lego pieces to grab, snacks to throw into her backpack, and the not-that-rare need to slither out of her booster, then ask for help when she’s stuck in an unwieldy position. So we need that time.
Harmony makes just a few car seats — the Defender 360 combination seat, the Youth Booster, and the Big Boost Deluxe. We’re fans of the Defender and the Youth Booster so we were eager to spend some quality time with the lowest priced backless booster that includes LATCH on the market!
