weeThink

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: 203
  • I love this seat, it felt safe and secure. The only thing negative was that food crumbs can get stuck in the belt and would sometimes need to be taken apart to resecure it. Feb 20, 2020

  • My toddler loves this seat. She is comfortable and loves being higher up to look out the window. Its a beast and I know it would keep my child safe if we were to get in an accident. Feb 02, 2020

  • The CarSeat Lady suggested and helped us install this car seat. Pros: our toddler can remain rear facing for a long time, it’s slim. Cons: not easy to clean with removable fabric Dec 07, 2019

    I have this and the nuna rava. Cannot take off and wash, even though it's fairly easy to wipe down. Very hard, not nearly as comfortable as rava according to my 4 year old. Oct 30, 2019

  • Great seat for older toddlers/preschoolers. My oldest is small for her age and can't move up to a booster so this seat is great for us. Only con is it is so heavy so we don't move it between cars. Sep 13, 2019

  • I love this car seat so much I bought one for each of my three kids. The price tag is well worth it. It doesn’t get any safer than this. Sep 12, 2019

  • I need to fit 3-across in my CR-V eventually, so this was one of the only options. I love it! Easy install, baby can see out the window, and the mammoth fabric really does keep her cooler. Sep 07, 2019

  • Great quality seat, easy to install and comfortable for our daughter! Aug 20, 2019

  • The best car seat ever made. So safe and stylish! This thing is a tank though lol super heavy. But by far the best and most comfy. Jul 29, 2019

  • I have this and the Nuna Rava. I prefer the Rava but the foonf is a close second. It’s in my husbands truck and he loves it. Jul 19, 2019

    Love this seat. Most importantly, we love how safe it is. It’s very heavy but the slim design is a nice feature. The fabric is super easy to clean. Jul 01, 2019

  • This carseat is supposed to be very safe...the downsides are its really hard to clean and its very heavy. Mar 26, 2019

  • This seat is super compact. The material is very easy to clean. It does sit high in the vehicle, though, so it is hard to see around. It is also a bit on the heavy side. Mar 19, 2019

  • This car seat is heavy duty! Equipped with crumple technology and extended rear facing capability make me feel like my child is safe. Mar 04, 2019

  • I love the car seat because it's a TANK but it's so big that it becomes a huge blind spot for me when it is set up reversed. Feb 21, 2019

  • This is the Bentley of car seats. The fabric is super yummy and it has high rear facing limits. My daughter is 4 and still rear faces in this seat Jan 19, 2019

    Great for safety. Hard. Heavy. Can’t change cars often due to size and weight. Can’t fit in my car middle sweat because I can’t see past it in rear view mirror Jan 02, 2019

  • This is the mother of all car seats! After loads of research, I landed on the Clek and am so happy I did! We love the Foonf. This is the most solid and sturdy car seat, makes this mama feel at ease. Nov 27, 2018

  • Overall, I would recommend. However, the fabric is not as stain resistant as they claim and the company does not stand behind it. They would not replace fabric even though it failed as advertised. Nov 22, 2018

  • I have two of these seats! They’re extremely heavy to move but that means they’re well made with the metal core to protect your babe from an accident. Good side protection and durable. Nov 02, 2018

  • Great car seat!!! Super heavy- wouldn’t recommend it for travel, but my child feels extremely secure in it. Love the front facing latch system and the steel frame. Greenguard gold certified fabric Sep 27, 2018

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
