The search for a booster seat with a tall shoulder belt guide is often a challenging quest. There aren’t too many models that go past the 21 or 22 inch top guide position, so when one comes along that has an unusually tall top position, we’re all ears. The Safety 1st Store ‘n Go Sport
The Safety 1st onBoard has been around for many years, going through various permutations of seat and base combinations along the way. It’s been a consistent seat with a lot of ease of use and comfort features at a reasonable price point. We were eager to see the latest version — the onBoard 35 LT.
All major health and safety organizations strongly recommend that kids under age 2 ride rear facing. Scientists, statisticians and child passenger safety advocates agree on the immense safety benefit of rear facing to very young spines.
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.
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.
Greetings from the wild wild west, where the CSFTL Media Team has converged on the ABC Kids Expo for coverage of the latest and greatest in the car seat world. Here’s a rundown of what we saw today:
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.
Hello from the beautiful Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate! Several of the CSFTL team are here attending the 11th annual child passenger safety conference of Kidz In Motion. On Wednesday, we had the opportunity to attend technical workshops, both of which provided us with new tools for assisting families and caregivers.
When our friends at Safety 1st asked us what our readers might think about the idea of a convertible car seat with a 50 pound rear facing weight limit, we were thrilled to pose the question on our Facebook page. The comments were clear — such a seat would be a welcome addition to the marketplace.
Two of our members were lucky enough to be able travel to Chicago, Illinois this weekend to attend the 33rd Annual Lifesavers Convention. Lifesavers is an all-encompassing highway safety conference. Its attendees range from CPSTs to Highway Patrol.
