The Britax Parkway has been on the booster seat scene for quite some time. In 2013, however, Britax gave the seat a makeover with some great upgrades.
Ilana has a long torso for her age and doesn’t have much room left in her other boosters. She needed something taller (the third row of the Town and Country doesn’t work for backless boosters and with five kids in seats, moving her isn’t an option). The van has had problems with Safety 1st boosters in the past, but it was a good price and super cool, so decided to give it a shot.
Maxi-Cosi offers two booster models that received a Best Bet rating in the 2014 IIHS Booster Ratings: the mid-priced, RodiAP and the higher end RodiFix. Both boosters offer a fairly high top belt guide so they’re both long-lasting as the child grows. The RodiFix does not convert to a backless booster, includes ISO-FIX connectors to secure it to the vehicle seat when not in use, and has closed shoulder belt guides that keep the seat belt in place. In this review, we’ll take a close look at the RodiFix.
Clek is a Canadian company based in Toronto, offering the popular Foonf & Fllo convertible seats in addition to the Oobr, Olli, and Ozzi booster seats. The Clek Oobr is a high back booster seat that is jam-packed with features.
When we heard that Kids Embrace was coming out with a series of superhero-themed backless boosters, the CSFTL team was pretty excited! We’ve already taken a close look at the Kids Embrace combination seats, so a backless booster for some of the older kids was a great option.
Harmony Juvenile makes a variety of children’s products, from strollers to play areas. They also have a variety of child seats, specifically, boosters. Harmony offers a variety of booster options, their backless boosters sport low prices and features that big kids will love. Remember, most kids need a booster until age 10-12; read more about why big kids need boosters, too.
My daughter rode in a harnessed car seat until right around her seventh birthday. Once she’d outgrown all of her harnessed seats by height, the best option for her became a high-backed booster.
Once your Little has outgrown a harnessed seat and is ready for a booster seat, the choices can be a bit overwhelming. There are a wide variety of booster seats on the market, high back, backless; with large belt guides, lots of padding; small belt guides, minimal padding, the options seem endless. At CSFTL, we know how challenging it can be to choose the right booster for your Little. Peg Perego, an Italian children’s product company, makes the luxurious Viaggio HBB 120 booster, the star of this post.
RECARO was founded in 1906 in Germany. They have been making car seats for over 100 years?! Not quite, but they have been making seats for cars for that long. It wasn’t until 1998 that RECARO entered the child passenger safety scene. It’s now 25 years later and they have just introduced a new high back booster. RECARO was generous enough to provide one of their new Performance BOOSTER seats for me to review.
*This seat has been discontinued* Looking for a lightweight booster or one that fits bigger kids? The Harmony Olympian booster may be for you!
