(Almost) every car seat that can be installed rear facing has some flavor of recline angle indicator on the seat to show the correct recline angle or range as the seat is installed. Newborns or children who lack head and neck control require a more reclined install, while older babies with head and neck control
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.
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.
Evenflo has offered a few multimode car seats over the years, starting with the Symphony, then moving on to the SafeMax. Both of those models are still available today but the product line has expanded to include the Evenflo EveryStage DLX. This multimode car seat has an innovative recline setting that helps the tiniest of
We’re ready to help you welcome the holidays by sharing some great deals on car seats and booster seats. We’ll also include links to our review so you can learn more about the car seats that we’re sharing!

We’ve enjoyed following the Cybex Aton line of rear facing only seats as it’s evolved, from the original Aton to the Aton 2 and Aton Q. (If you read these, you’ll notice our review style has evolved as well!) And now, there’s a new Aton on the block, with a brand new base and some variations on Cybex’s unique features. Meet the Cybex Aton M.
We got our first look at the new Nuna Myti at the Kind und Jugend trade show back in September, but now can share even more info about this new harness to booster (aka combination car seat for our friends from the United States) car seat with our readers! Nuna invited us down to their offices
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.
The KidsEmbrace Backless Booster seat is not the narrowest booster we’ve ever worked with, but it is lightweight and provided a consistently excellent vehicle seat belt fit for every model and in every vehicle we used for this review. Consistency in fit is our favourite thing when it comes to booster seats, so we’d call this seat a winner for that alone. The fact that it comes in exciting superhero covers makes it an even bigger win!
