Need an inexpensive booster? A narrow booster? A travel booster? All the above? Then here is the booster for you, the Harmony Folding Booster.

Foonf is a funny word, yet if it is uttered in a room of Child Passenger Safety Technicians or Advocates, one will be met with many head turns, pricked ears, and immediate attention. I waited a very long time for my Foonf, and was thrilled to be one of the first to have hands on experience with this car seat.
*This seat has been replaced by the Britax G4.1 series* Britax has been a prominent name in car seats since they introduced their first car seat to the US in 1996. They make a wide variety of infant, convertible, combination, and booster seats. Thanks to Britax I was able to test out an Advocate 70-G3 convertible to share my thoughts with our readers.
If you’re looking for just the facts about rear facing versus forward facing, you’ve come to the right place. There are multiple factors involved in this discussion; the unique physiology of a young toddler combined with the type of force in the most severe crashes adds up to the perfect storm that puts kids at significant risk if they are forward facing too early.
The new Elite 80 Air from Safety 1st, (a Dorel subsidiary) addresses these problems brilliantly, and quite frankly, hit it out of the park for the 3-in-1 model. While it still will not be the only seat a family needs to buy, I can comfortably say that it will last most children from birth to age 8, and after that, a backless booster is only a few dollars.
Did you know car seats expire? Car seats have a lifespan ranging anywhere from 4-12 years. The expiration date may be stamped in the plastic, on a sticker, or you may need to calculate the time based on the date of manufacture.
It is well-known on the CSFTL website that kids need to be in boosters until 10-12 years old, but finding the booster that fits your child well, fits your vehicle well, and will last can be tough. Evenflo has finally brought their E3 technology into the booster world and their new booster might be that perfect one for you! Check out the RightFit that Evenflo so generously provided for this review!
To start off, what is a Child Passenger Safety Technician? A CPST has been trained specifically on the topic of child restraints and safety within a vehicle. They can spot problems and know the specifics about seats and cars on the market. They make sure that a child is in the correct seat for their age, height, and weight. With upwards of 80% of child restraints being used incorrectly, a CPST educates parents on the correct use of seats and shows them how to properly install them.
That mid-sized sedan you bought a few years ago really made sense for your family. You’ve got two kids, you commute, and you didn’t want a car payment or a second mortgage to cover fuel costs.
And it was working just fine until this afternoon, when the neighbor asked you if you would pick up her kid from school along with yours.
