*This seat has been discontinued* Looking for a lightweight booster or one that fits bigger kids? The Harmony Olympian booster may be for you!
Looking for an inexpensive or lightweight booster that also has LATCH? The Graco Connext may be for you! Unfortunately the Connext is no longer in production.
**Discontinued** The Diono Radian worked well in three across and tight spaces. Visit https://csftl.org/diono-radian-3rxt-review/ for a review of a newer version of these seats.
We would like to take this time to introduce the newest members of the CSFTL family.
These awesome additions were provided by Huggable Images, a company that makes safety training dolls and custom huggables. Huggable Images has given us the opportunity to take their dolls for a test drive and see what we think. You’ll be seeing these dolls in our reviews down the road to fill in the gaps where we don’t have children the correct age/size to fit the seat we’re reviewing. Today we’ll be looking at these dolls on their own to see how they stack up to real life children.
Finally a booster for big kids that doesn’t look like a booster! Safety 1st hit it out of the park with this one. With the minimums to use this booster being 6 years old, 47 inches and 60 lbs., this is not a seat for the Littles.
The Evenflo Maestro is the workhorse of combination car seats: it doesn’t have a lot of flashy features, but for under $100 it will harness the average kindergartener. And for that, we love it!
Need an inexpensive booster? A narrow booster? A travel booster? All the above? Then here is the booster for you, the Harmony Folding Booster.
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.
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!
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.
