  • It didn't have all the bells and whistles that other car seats have, but it worked and was comfortable. Jul 28, 2019

  • I hate this seat! It was so hard to install, the straps would get twisted, the chest clip is so long it would poke the kid and it was really uncomfortable between their legs. May 04, 2019

    Great for small cars!!! Feb 27, 2019

  • We have used this car seat with all of our kids after they transition from their baby car seat and are still rear facing. It is comfortable and has stayed in really good condition, we have loved it! Jan 11, 2019

  • Good size, lightweight, fits well in a smaller car with 3 carseats, but due to the fixed recline it can’t be behind the drivers seat in either car. Cover is easy to take off and wash. Jan 01, 2019

  • Leg position seems a little less comfortable for small children but great price when we got it. Lightweight and easy install Oct 25, 2018

  • I love this carseat for my son. He is never uncomfortable and the harness keeps him in securely. Sep 04, 2018

  • Pushed kiddos head far up hated this seat. Sep 04, 2018

  • I love this car seat. my daughter has been in it from 5 months and still is at 3 years. Its perfect for small cars, I can fit 2 in my Chevy Cruze with room for a booster. Aug 14, 2018

  • This is an excellent car seat for travel. It is light weight and basic, it fits well on an airplane seat. I like that it has some head support. It is easier to install with a seat belt than anchors. Jul 11, 2018

  • Dad bought this so I didn't have a say. It wouldn't have been my choice. It has served its purpose. I hated taking it off to wash for the price it was ok. May 30, 2018

  • This was my sons secodn car seat. The main reason for buying this was because it seemed super comfortable and my son loved it when he tried it out Mar 26, 2018

  • Great quality for the price! Love the colors Feb 10, 2018

  • This seat was absolutely perfect when our daughter moved from her infant seat into a large seat. It has been with us for nearly 2 years ad is still going strong! Jan 26, 2018

  • Grandma's car seat for my 3yo. I have a hard time adjusting it. manual rethreads. At least it has latch so easier to reinstall when she takes it out for whatever reason. Comfy enough but hes not picky Sep 15, 2017

  • Love this carseat for my 2 year old. He seems comfortable in it & I'm confident that it is a safe carseat. Aug 31, 2017

  • I love this seat. So easy to use and fits together with another one in the back seat Jul 25, 2017

  • Was skeptical, for the price this is a great seat. Fits 3 across easily, easy to use, a little hard to install rear-facing but overall a great buy! May 24, 2017

  • Very happy with this seat, easy to clean, easy to use. So far it still fits my almost 3 year old that is in the 95th percentile so very large for age. May 03, 2017

  • We just recently got this for our newly turned one year old. We LOVE it. It's light weight, easy to install, nice and cushioned. He used to scream in his infant seat- he hasn't cried once in this one. Feb 23, 2017

  • While it served its purpose, I hated it. Instead of telling parents to use a rolled towel or pool noodle, giving the seat a flat bottom like most other convertable would've saved trouble. Feb 20, 2017

  • I cannot say that I like anything about this seat. It is uncomfortable, pushes head forward and causes slump. It is not very lightweight for the price range. Jan 31, 2017

  • For being one of the lower costing car seats, it did not disappoint whatsoever. It wonderful! Jan 23, 2017

    Con: Difficult to get a tight rear facing install with LATCH or seat belt. Pro: Lightweight enough to be our airplane travel seat and has nice weight limits so won't be outgrown quickly. Dec 05, 2016

  • We really like this car seat. We have it RF in my Mazda 3 it fits great and she seems comfortable. We have the pink color Mar 13, 2016

    we've had this seat for about a year, the material gets really hot and we live in Florida:( which it gets very hot here. And the padding is minimal,my son does not like this seat. Jan 15, 2016

  • It keeps my son safe Jan 15, 2016

  • easy to use and works well for both babies Dec 31, 2015

    It's a great car-seat for the price, light and easy to install, but hard to keep properly angled in my 2000 Ford Taurus (with seatbelt instead of hooks.) It fares better in my husband's newer Toyota. Nov 28, 2015

  • Great for travel! Super light and easy to install. Does not recline so it's best for 5 months+ Sep 25, 2015

  • Light and compact car seat, great for travel or 3 across. It doesn't recline so it's best for babies about 6 months or older. Sep 14, 2015
