While knowledge about the safety benefits of riding rear facing longer and keeping children in harnessed car seats until they’re ready for booster seats seems to be spreading through the parenting community, we still see (both online and in person) that many families abandon their child’s booster seat before the child can pass the Five
Graco’s TurboBooster family of booster seats has expanded once again! Please join me in welcoming the TurboBooster Grow with RightGuide to the family. This high back booster converts to a lightweight backless booster seat that has a surprise inside! The RightGuide is described as a “seat belt trainer,” that lifts out from the backless portion
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.
Britax retired the longtime favorite Parkway booster seat this spring and replaced it with the Highpoint, Midpoint and Skyline highback booster seats. Recently we reviewed the Highpoint, and we were happy to spend some time with the Skyline. Along with the Emblem and Allegiance convertible car seats, the Skyline is a member of Britax’s Essentials line
The Britax Highpoint is a very nice booster seat that’s easy to use. We’re particularly fond of the plush cover, the lower anchors, and the consistent vehicle seat belt fit that it offered to our young passengers.

The KidsEmbrace 2-in-1 Booster Seat has a lot to offer in backless mode. It’s lightweight, offers a consistent belt fit, and is stunningly wide where it counts — in the seating area.
The 18 inch top shoulder belt guide and fairly narrow back area mean that it’s very short-lived in high back mode.
The TurboBooster TakeAlong excels at its main purpose in life — being a very portable option that most Littles can set up and use properly with minimal or no supervision.
This is a big task for a small seat. We’re thrilled to see that the TurboBooster TakeAlong does all of this with ease.
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
The RideSafer Delight Travel Vest is an updated version of the Ride Safer Travel Vest, which came in two versions: the RideSafer Travel Vest 2, and the RideSafer Travel Vest 3, or RSTV 2 and 3. While both versions were quite similar, there were some notable differences between them. Today’s version of the vest is
