The CruiserFix Pro is a belt positioning booster that includes a variety of features that I would not have thought to include on a booster — adjustable thigh support, adjustable sidewings, rigid lower anchors, and shock absorbers. Those features contribute to the awards that this seat has won.
The original Graco TurboBooster has been a CSFTL favorite for quite some time. It’s lightweight, fits smaller children well, and is almost foolproof to use properly. When Graco showed us a sneak peek at the updated TurboBooster LX during the ABC Kids show last fall, we had a hard time imagining how they could possibly improve such a solid seat until all was revealed.
We were excited to see a new seat arrive that keeps some of the greatest features of the original Nautilus, improves on its quirks, and rivals the Harmony Defender as the narrowest recommended combination seat on the market. Meet the Graco Tranzitions!
These days are a very exciting time for Graco combination seats! The lineup now features a no-rethread harness on the Nautilus and two new seats that have a lot to offer, including the well-priced Atlas 65. Boasting a tall 18.5″ top harness height, this long-lasting $129 option is an exciting addition to the marketplace. Let’s take a closer look at this lightweight harness to booster seat.
While there’s no set time or age for moving your child from a high back booster to a backless booster, we tend to suggest making this move when the child is able to sit properly all of the time.
Since not all big kids are ready for the responsibility of sitting properly without the reminder that the shoulder and head sections of the high back booster can provide, members of our Facebook group ask which boosters might last the longest or be the best value.
The Graco Nautilus 65 LX 3-in-1 car seat is a forward facing only combination seat that functions as a 5 point harness, high back booster, and backless booster.
The Graco Nautilus 65 LX/65 DLX/80 Elite 3-in-1 car seat is a forward facing only combination seat that functions as a 5 point harness, high back booster, and backless booster.
In the past we have reviewed the Graco Nautilus, but Graco has revamped the Nautilus into the Nautilus 65 LX/65 DLX/80 Elite. Instead of having the Nautilus and the Graco Argos, Graco has merged the two different seats into one seat. Our review will give you an in-depth look at this updated seat.
The KidFit completes the Chicco birth-to-seatbelt product line, after the KeyFit and the Nextfit. These three seats will potentially allow your child to be safely restrained until he is old and large enough for a seatbelt alone.
When Diono announced the re-release of the Diono Monterey booster, we rejoiced! The Diono Monterey is a favorite among many of the CSFTL older Littles. With a variety of both ease of use and comfort features, it’s a great option for when older children are ready to transition to a booster.
I first met the Lil Fan booster seats at the ABC Kids Expo last fall. It took all of about two seconds for me to find the booster wearing the Ohio State cover and sidle up for a closer look. As a lifelong Buckeye fan, and fan of car seats, clearly it was fate that I met this seat. Seeing the fairly high 21″ top belt guide position made me even more eager to see how it would fit my young Buckeye fans!
In the wake of the Alpha Omega Elite being discontinued, Safety 1st has released its successor, the Grow and Go 3-in-1. With its release comes important questions. How will it stack up to the seat many have both loved and dreaded for well over a decade? Does it fit in vehicles rear facing? Does the booster mode give proper belt fit? Let’s dive right in to the new Safety 1st Grow and Go and find out.
