The Evenflo SureRide/Titan 65 has made a name for itself in the car seat world, and rightfully so. This seat offers some of the tallest harness slots of any convertible seat as well as a good fit for many newborns, making it is one of the only convertibles that will expire before kids outgrow it.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, relatively narrow, inexpensive booster, cast your gaze towards the Evenflo Big Kid Sport.
Each year, an average of 37 children die from hyperthermia after being left in a hot car. At CSFTL, we keep this sobering statistic near to our hearts, doing anything and everything we can to prevent any more of these deaths. We’ve chatted with hyperthermia expert Jan Null, we promote awareness on every social media outlet we can find, we talk relentlessly about simple ways to prevent this tragedy.
When the Car Seats for the Littles team first saw the Evenflo Spectrum booster seat at the ABC Show in Las Vegas in October 2016, I think we must have all looked like a group of puppies. Heads cocked, ears up, eyes forward, looking at what look like something new. Sure, it was a booster seat, but it looked like a booster seat from the future!
The latest budget-friendly convertible car seat from Evenflo checks in at a VERY reasonable price of $79.99! It’s not often that we throw around the term game changer but at this price, it’s hard not to start thinking about the Sonus that way. Let’s see if the seat matches our expectations.
Evenflo is recalling more than 56,000 Transitions units due to a concern over children loosening their own harnesses. Caregivers with affected units can contact Evenflo for a free fix kit.
When asked for a recommendation for an inexpensive convertible car seat, one of the biggest go-to options are typically the Safety 1st Guide 65 vs Evenflo SureRide (also the Evenflo Titan 65). Both of these seats are comparably priced and will last quite a while both rear and forward facing. Even lower priced options can be found in the comparison between the Cosco Scenera NEXT and Cosco Apt50.
The LiteMax is lightweight and offers a superb fit for even small babies. It features creature comforts that include Outlast fabrics, a padded insert, and padded harness/buckle covers.
Our final full day at the ABC Kids Expo dawned bright and early but we missed that part of the day thanks to our evening as high rollers at the casino.
We should stick to car seats.
Evenflo recently released an update to their Embrace rear facing only car seat, but it isn’t just a trim change or a fashion update. Their revolutionary new SensorSafe technology promises to change how manufacturers approach vehicular hyperthermia with new child restraint technology. The Advance Embrace DLX with SensorSafe comes with a receiver which plugs directly into the vehicle and a smart chest clip which is on the car seat itself to alert caregivers if a child is in the seat.
