When we heard about the Avionaut MaxSpace, having already seen their amazingly light infant seat, the Pixel, and their 25 kg rear facing seat, the Sky, we had to see what they could do with a booster. Luckily they were happy to provide us with two beautifully sleek boosters for us to try out! CSFTL

The Graco TurboBooster has been a solid, well-fitting, popular booster seat for many years for good reason! It is lightweight, very simple to assemble and use, and fits a wide variety of children well. It’s also budget friendly, making it a good choice for many families.
When the the new Peg Perego Viaggio Flex 120 emerged from a slim box dropped off on my doorstep one day, I was instantly impressed. Booster seats can be quite basic and work fantastically well so it’s quite a feat when I’m blown away by one. The Viaggio Flex 120 emerged from the box folded, narrow, and assembled. It only got better from there. The Peg Perego Viaggio Flex 120 is a long lasting booster seat that has a lot of pretty spectacular features.
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.
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.
Graco has turned the CPS world on its head a bit with the convertible Extend2Fit car seat. The big marketing feature of the seat is the extendable tray that can give a bigger child up to 5 inches of additional rear facing legroom. We’ve found, however, that the seat’s best features are the 50 pound rear facing weight limit and how well it fits in a variety of tight spaces. When Graco announced a version that converts to a high back booster, we were excited to take a closer look at this 3-in-1 version of the seat, which has rear facing, forward facing, and high back booster modes.
In recent months we have welcomed two new seats from Safety 1st: the Grow and Go, and the Advance EX 65 Air +. Both of these seats are innovative: the Grow and Go replaced the widely panned Alpha Omega with a seat that functions well in all three modes (rear facing, forward facing, and booster), and the Advance Ex 65 is a truly long lasting seat with generous rear facing maximums of 50 lbs and 49″.
Our friends at Safety 1st have developed a number of 3-in-1 multimode and convertible car seats that are similar but have different features. We’ve reviewed the cornerstone seat in this group, the Grow and Go and were eager to take a close look at the new Grow and Go Air. The seat has three modes: rear facing, forward facing, and booster mode. Our seat’s cover is a peaceful and soft pattern called Evening Tide.
