Graco Grows4Me Review

The Grows4Me fit all of our models well — from 3 days to 9 years old.  There is but a smattering of car seats on the market today that could make such a claim!  So families who would like to get that full 10 years of use from one car seat could conceivably do so with this seat.  The primary difference between this seat and the Graco 4Ever is the lower anchors — this seat has the still functional, but harder to use standard j-hook style, while the 4Ever has premium push button lower anchors. Families who know they’ll primarily be installing this seat with a vehicle seat belt or who don’t mind the standard lower anchors have a great option in the Grows4Me.

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.
