  • My son is large and said this was uncomfortable. I found it extremely difficult to locate the user Manuel for this product. Feb 08, 2018

  • This is a booster seat that I would highly recommend! My son is 7, 60 lbs and is about 50 inches tall and was extremely comfortable in this seat. I felt confident in the safety of it. A must get! Oct 03, 2017

  • my daughter loves this car seat. She says its comfortable and she loves the pull out drink trays. She also says the head rest is very comfortable. May 19, 2017

  • I love it, it's nice an comfy. Then I read you have to have a car headrest for support to use it and we don't so it went back. Mar 30, 2017

    Comfy, tall enough for my tall 9 year old. Downside base is too wide to fit 3 car seats across Mar 27, 2017

  • I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. This has all the makings of a luxurious and high-quality Diono seat, but at such an affordable price tag. Mar 15, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    We've been using for a few weeks now. I was impressed with it right out of the box. Love the framing on the seat, makes seat a bit heavier but I feel my kids are protected. No issues getting buckled. Mar 15, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    My 7 year old loves this seat b/c its comfortable. I love that it can grow with him, has aluminum reinforced sides, retractable cups, packs flat, and that he actually LOVES being in it! Mar 15, 2017

    I love that it is lightweight but also durable and built well. It is easy to adjust as my child grows with a headrest that raises & width that can be expanded. I trust it to keep my child safe. Mar 15, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    My husband and I love that even though it's a bigger booster it's still easy to move from car to car. It's a bit bulky if you have narrow seats or more than one child in a car seat/booster. Mar 13, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I love that it uses LATCH and adjusts to all different sizes. The color is great, too. My daughter says it's really comfortable and she loves it. It is heavy/bulky but that's my only complaint. Mar 13, 2017

  • (what's this?)
