Diono radian 3RXT Review

Sunshine Kids first released the Radian convertible car seats in November 2005, and some of the oldest CSFTL kiddos rode in those seats!  Since that time, Sunshine Kids became Diono, and the Radian has gone through a few sets of changes.  Recently, Diono has revamped the Radian family of products once again, introducing a new take on these familiar seats.  The updated radian 3RXT multimode car seat loses a capital R in the name and adds some interesting new features.

Graco Recline N’ Ride Review

Our challenges with installing the seat lead us to assert that the Recline N’ Ride could be a good choice for children with special needs who require a deep recline when forward facing but it may not work well in some vehicles.   It’s also quite limited in booster mode since our models struggled to buckle themselves into the seat.

Maxi-Cosi Jool Review Canada

The Maxi-Cosi Jool isn’t a new convertible car seat– it’s been on Canadian store shelves since 2015. Our fair readers from the North have questions about this seat and now, we’ve got answers!  The Jool offers so many great colour options and a is well-padded seat that presents a few challenges because it’s so darn large.

Graco Turbo Go Booster Seat Review

The Graco Turbo Go does what we’d expect a booster seat to do — it just works.   The vehicle seat belt fit was spot on for all of our models.  Each of our models was able to set it up themselves without help from adults. It lacks some of the bells and whistles that make more featured booster seats heavier but since this booster’s sole mission in life is to keep carpoolers safe, the Graco Turbo Go is absolutely is up to the task.

Graco SnugRide SnugLock Extend2Fit 35 Review

We learned very quickly that the SnugRide SnugLock Extend2Fit 35 – or SnugLock E2F 35 for short – is a valuable car seat in its own right, filling a need for a rear facing only seat that fits newborns well yet can be used comfortably for longer than a year.  The tall shell height, extra legroom, and 35 inch height limit all add up to a long-lasting option for families on the go.

Maxi-Cosi Magellan Review

The Magellan has a lot of interesting features and is so well-padded that even the pickiest of passengers should find it comfortable.   Unfortunately, the number of installation challenges we faced along the way don’t put the Magellan at the top of our list for easy to use car seats. Families who are looking for a very plush car seat, have a roomy vehicle and are willing to be extremely patient while installing the Magellan may find it exactly what they need.
