All in one is a moniker that’s associated with a few car seats on the market today. This category of car seat does a few things — rear faces, forward faces, and converts to a booster seat. Many of these seats are marketed as long-lasting, some even claim to last a child for all of
We first reviewed the Graco 4Ever multimode car seat when it was released. Since then, the 4Ever has stood the test of time and remained a fan favorite with the CSFTL team. So much so that our original 4Ever has spent time with a number of CSFTL families and become a bit worn over the
Graco’s product line to date includes a vast range of car seats and booster seats. This well-known manufacturer has a way of seamlessly combining their features into new twists on their existing seats. This time, Graco created a multimode car seat that’s similar to a couple of seats we know well (the Milestone/SlimFit) but includes
ClickTight technology was kind of a game-changer for car seat installations when it was introduced. Since we first met this technology on the now-retired Britax Frontier, we marveled at how simple it made installing a car seat!

Maxi-Cosi Magellan Multimode Car Seat Review Canada A team of reviewers spent a good bit of time with the Maxi-Cosi Magellan when it was first released in the United States.

So families who would like to get that full 10 years of use from one car seat could conceivably do so with this seat.

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.
