When the the new Peg Perego Viaggio Flex 120 emerged from a slim box dropped off on my doorstep one day, I was instantly impressed.  Booster seats can be quite basic and work fantastically well so it’s quite a feat when I’m blown away by one.  The Viaggio Flex 120 emerged from the box folded, narrow, and assembled.

Teen Drivers

It’s amazing, but somehow that Little you just brought home for the first time yesterday is now not so much a Little, but is ready to be behind the wheel. It’s an exciting time.

Aidia Explorer Review

CSFTL is happy to review our first palindromic booster seat! Written the same forward as it is backwards, Aidia has released a new booster to the US market, the Explorer.
