Featuring sleek lines, Crypton fabric, and great colors and patterns, the Clek Foonf and Clek Fllo are trendy, fun seats that appeal to many. With a starting weight limit of 14 lbs. though, these sweet seats cannot be used from birth. With the recently released infant-thingy, an insert that can be used with both the Foonf and Fllo starting at 5 lbs. and 19″, the Clek convertibles are now an option for those who choose to skip the rear facing only seat.
When it comes to child passenger safety, the evolution of caregiver knowledge and state laws has been a slow process. However, more and more caregivers are learning that children need to ride in booster seats longer than they may have originally thought.
Maxi-Cosi is a well-known name worldwide for rear facing only seats. There have been several renditions of the Mico seat here in the US. The Mico Max 30 is the latest version. Maxi-Cosi has increased the height and weight limit and added an anti rebound bar to the base. Let’s check it out.
The Cosco Apt40 has been around for some time now and made a name for itself as a great budget seat. It had a major limitation in that once outgrown rear facing, it was outgrown forward facing as well. The new Cosco Apt50 has fixed that issue. Let’s see how the Apt50 stacks up its predecessor.
Considering a Clek convertible car seat, but you’re not sure which one is right for you? Have you read our review of the Foonf or our review of the Fllo but still can’t decide? The seats are very similar: both have anti-rebound bars (ARB). Both rear face to 50 lbs. and forward face to 65 lbs.
Graco has a long history of rear facing only seats. The SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the king of the bunch!. Travel often? Take taxis as a main mode of transportation? Just want a rear facing only seat that will fit many children until at least age two?
There are so many backless boosters, how do you choose the one that will work best for your not-so-Little? Maybe you have an older, bigger child who just isn’t ready to go without a booster. The Cosco Ambassador/Highrise is a booster that works well for bigger children and may be a great fit. Let’s check it out!
It’s potty learning time here at CSFTL. We have a little handful of kiddos who turned two this past year and new potties and undergarments abound.
Anyone who has been doing this kid thing for a while knows how much the world of car seats has changed even in the last decade, let alone the last twenty years. I’m the admin currently with the oldest “Little” so I’ve been at this for a while now. AJ is 11.5 years old now and I’ve been a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) for almost nine years now; so I like to think I have a lot of real world experience when it comes to the changes that have been made over the years.
When Cosco invited Car Seats for the Littles to their Scenera NEXT launch party, I was ecstatic! When I was chosen to go, I screamed. Literally. I called my husband and screeched, CRASH TESTS! I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than in a car seat plant that produces close to one million car seats a year.
