As one weeSpring parent noted, this is the “Ferrari” of car seats. Sleek, stylish, and incredibly safe, it includes extended rear-facing capabilities for up to 50 lbs (~4 years old), well beyond the AAP’s recommendation to remain rear-facing until 2. Clek has the narrowest base out there (just 13 inches!) which makes it a cinch to install three-across, if needed.

The Catch: At $400+, it’s definitely an investment (also of note, in order to use it from infancy, you’ll need to purchase the infant insert, which is sold separately).

REGRET: 3 WANT: 144
  • Bought it because of the high safety standards, but enjoy that it’s narrow, stylish and apparently comfortable. But beware it’s HEAVY. I wouldn’t recommend if you’re planning on moving it regularly. Sep 03, 2018

  • My almost 6 year old has been in our Clek Foonf since he was 8 months old. I love that this car seat is so safe, non toxic, and grows with your child so you don’t need to buy others. Must have! Aug 28, 2018

  • Our child loves this carseat because it is higher up than our Graco 4ever and she can see out the window. It is HUGE and HEAVY but very safe and solid. Might not fit in smaller vehicles in rear mode. Aug 16, 2018

  • I had this car seat but decided to sell it because it sat too high rear facing, it increased the blind spots in my Honda Pilot. The fabric is treated but I worried about being unable to wash it. Jul 11, 2018

  • Amazing seat. This seat is heavy but still easy to move between cars. I love how baby sits up higher allowing him to look out the window. Cleans easy and adjusts easily. Jul 10, 2018

  • We own two Foonfs and wouldn’t have it any other way. They help us fit 3 across and rear-face until age 4. There is now a wool flame-retardant free option which makes this the BEST seat ever! Jun 03, 2018

  • By far the best car seat for safety on the market. Little one is super comfortable in it. I also love the look Apr 07, 2018

  • I have this in the Toki Doki Space design. Seriously the cutest thing ever. I have a KIA Rio and it is very tall in my car, but still fits. I really am happy about this purchase. Worth the cost. Mar 28, 2018

  • I am confident my son is absolutely 100% safe in this amazing seat Mar 22, 2018

    I love Clek! The Foonf is my favorite car seat so sleek and modern with so many mind blowing safety features. When installing I was amazed by the attention to detail that was put into the design Mar 12, 2018

  • Narrow so we can still use side seats. The harness is easy to tighten and there are spots to hold the buckles so they dont get lost! Feb 25, 2018

  • Sturdy, easy to clean fabric. This car seat is a snap to install. I also love that it has a very modern, minimalist look (of course safety is my number one concern, but this was a bonus). Feb 19, 2018

  • High safety rating, transparent crash test reporting and sleek design! Love! Feb 18, 2018

  • Love the peace of mind the high safety ratings brings. The narrow seat makes for a much roomier back seat too! Feb 04, 2018

  • Sturdy, safe and stylish, I'm so in love with this car seat, and my son seems to be super comfortable in it, too. Plus, it's easy to clean. It is heavy, though, so don't plan on transferring often. Jan 19, 2018

  • Slim design, sits higher for toddler to see out window, unbeatable safety construction!! Dec 27, 2017

  • I love how safety-minded this car seat is! Plus the fabric doesn’t contain chemical flame retardants! I love that the Rear-facing weight limit is so high! My 4.5 year old is still rear-facing! Nov 15, 2017

    It's really pretty and super solid but extremely hard to clean. Nov 08, 2017

  • Safe, comfortable. My son is still happy rear facing in it. He is, almost 3, 32 lbs 32 inches tall. We have a mirror so we can see him and he can have an additional view. Get a light seat for travel. Oct 27, 2017

  • I love this seat. It is easy to install, has a great wipeable material, looks good, and sits my son up high so he can see out the window. It has extended rear seating criteria. We love it. Oct 18, 2017

    Because this seat is so narrow, my child had difficulty getting comfortable in this seat - so much so that we replaced it. Also hard to keep clean as cover cannot be removed and washed easily. Oct 09, 2017

  • So easy to clean and my kids feel comfortable! I love that it reclines if they fall asleep! Best carseat ever! Sep 07, 2017

  • I love love love this car seat. From everything to the easy install to the weight and height limits for rear facing. The only cons would be the weight of the seat and the price. Aug 24, 2017

  • My baby loves to be able to see out the windows! This seat is HEAVY but it feels safe and sturdy. Plus we got a sweet blue and white one that I love to look at! Aug 08, 2017

  • This is an amazing car seat. It is sturdy and safe. It was recommended to me by the car seat lady due to the safety aspects. It is a very heavy car seat so you would need to leave it in one car. SAFE Jul 26, 2017

    The safest car seat available. My daughter is so comfortable in her seat. She loves road trips. Jul 23, 2017

  • Much easier to install than people say (took us less time than our other car seat). Love how narrow it is while also being extremely well rated for safety! Worth every penny we spent on it. Con: Heavy Jul 06, 2017

  • they are not lying when they claim this is the mother of all car seats. it is very heavy and expensive but its worth it! gorgeous design and super sturdy, i feel my child is safe just by looking at it Jun 30, 2017

  • Perfect for extended rear-facing. Slim footprint fits easily in backseat. Jun 07, 2017

  • From Clek

    At Clek we are all about the Ride. All kinds of rides, including the one through life. When we first started out on this journey we had a clear direction. Forward, but with different thinking. Because how you get there matters. Our thinking is design thinking. Not only products, but also experiences. Parenting comes with compromises. We get that. But we don’t believe you need to compromise when it comes to child passenger safety. Comfort, safety, convenience and style can co-exist without sacrifice. Easy task? Nope. An important one? Absolutely.
