Many families have long been fans of UPPAbaby’s full-featured Mesa rear-facing only seat and we have, too. It has many easy-to-use features that make installing and using it correctly fairly painless. We’re pleased to see that the UPPAbaby car seat family now includes a booster seat — the ALTA high back booster. Join us as
The Graco TurboBooster has been around for quite some time now. We know the original version well, and we’ve also reviewed the TurboBooster Grow, TurboBooster TakeAlong, and other versions of this seat. We’ve found very consistently that the TurboBooster family of booster seats is well known for its fit and function. The newest addition to
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
Families who don’t find themselves moving booster seats between vehicles too often (or who don’t mind contorting themselves around the seat to move it) and/or families who have children who are prone to overheating will find a solid choice in the Kobuk Booster Seat.
The TurboBooster TakeAlong excels at its main purpose in life — being a very portable option that most Littles can set up and use properly with minimal or no supervision.
This is a big task for a small seat. We’re thrilled to see that the TurboBooster TakeAlong does all of this with ease.

The Monterey XT is a great booster for any booster-ready child, especially those with larger builds. It is easy to install and use. The lower anchor connectors, cup holders, and adjustable width are all very nice features that make this seat uniquely customizable. While it is bulky and won’t work well in a three-across situation, the Diono Monterey XT is definitely a great seat for bigger littles.
The design team at Graco is a master at creating booster seats that are easy to use, well-priced, long-lasting, and provide an excellent belt fit. The Affix is a cousin of the much loved TurboBooster, but adds lower anchors to an already popular seat. AND! It’s now available in Canada so we’re updating this review so reflect the key differences between the United States and Canadian versions of the seat.
Combination car seats fill an important gap in the car seat market — forward facing only seats that allow children to remain in a harnessed car seat until they’re truly ready to move to a booster seat. We’d like to introduce the Cosco Finale, which comes in at the staggeringly low suggested retail price of $49 for the base model and $59 for the more plush cover.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, relatively narrow, inexpensive booster, cast your gaze towards the Evenflo Big Kid Sport.
