Britax has made the Parkway booster for a while now, but in 2013, it got a makeover. This Parkway model, the SG-L, comes equipped with lower anchor connectors which secure it to the vehicle.It has extra foam and padding; some added touches that might make it perfect for some families.
The BubbleBum has been a favorite CSFTL carpool option since the first days of our existence. Our 2013 review put the older version of this portable, inflatable, backless booster through the paces. Since then, the belt guides have been redesigned so we thought now was a good time to take a look at this updated seat.
We’ve been fans of Safe Traffic Systems’ Ride Safer Travel Vest for some time now. When they announced the Delighter booster seat, which is the ONLY booster seat that can be used in conjunction with the Ride Safer Travel Vest, we were ready to take a close look.
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. This high back to backless booster has a logo at the top that looks very nearly the same in your rear view mirror as it does looking directly at it. It also sports a removable cupholder, is quite narrow, easy to adjust, is lightweight, and is comfortable.
We’ve been big fans of the well-featured Nuna Pipa rear facing only car seat for quite some time. When Nuna announced the new AACE booster seat and the upcoming RAVA convertible car seat, we Could Not Wait to take a look! The AACE arrived in a very large box and I forced myself to finish another article before I could open it.
If you’re on any social media outlets, you’ve probably seen an ad or ten for the mifold. We sure have! We’ve been anxiously awaiting its release. Unlike most products, the mifold got its start with an Indiegogo campaign so the manufacturer was taking orders for it long before its release to market.
Baby Trend has revived another retired car seat. This time, the Compass Pathways B570 Booster has been redone and given another shot at life. When the Compass Pathways came out it was the latest in a line of folding high back boosters from Compass. Since then, Compass and Harmony have phased out their folding boosters. Safety 1st has stopped producing the BoostaPak. But now, Baby Trend has brought the PROtect Yumi to the market, a folding high back booster that’s great for travel or everyday use.
The CruiserFix Pro is a belt positioning booster that includes a variety of features that I would not have thought to include on a booster — adjustable thigh support, adjustable sidewings, rigid lower anchors, and shock absorbers. Those features contribute to the awards that this seat has won.
The original Graco TurboBooster has been a CSFTL favorite for quite some time. It’s lightweight, fits smaller children well, and is almost foolproof to use properly. When Graco showed us a sneak peek at the updated TurboBooster LX during the ABC Kids show last fall, we had a hard time imagining how they could possibly improve such a solid seat until all was revealed.
The Lil Fan Box Seat Premium Slimline No Back Booster Seat is a little seat with a very long name! It also goes by the much shorter name “Box Seat,” so we’ll use that name. When we met the Lil Fan Club Seat earlier this year, we were impressed with the great belt fit on our models, the seat’s easy to follow labels and instructions, and the seat’s light weight. Oh, and the amazing sports-themed covers if you’re into that sort of thing.
