    I have to say I am a professional when it comes to car seats, boosters, high chairs you name. After 4 kids and having several cars that have 'permanent car seats and boosters' in them taking up room I can honestly say I am very well versed in seats and safety. I am very impressed with these boosters. I was seriously hoping to be done with car seats in general for my twin 3 year old boys. I knew I needed boosters but I thought my boys, who are each 36 pounds, could just use half boosters with the belt over 1 shoulder. NO way. My boys were getting out of them in no time. Regular car seats were getting too small. I didn't have enough leeway to even pull the straps over them and they complained they were too tight. I knew I needed another 5 point harness for them too. These seats have plenty of strap and the seats are roomy for both of them. Plus they snap in easy and the button is easy to release as well. Another great feature they're not bulky and they're light weight. Also, you can not beat the price! When I knew I had to buy another set of seats I dreaded the price. I ordered them online and they were shipped to my house for free because I had to buy two of them, which bought my total price over $50. That qualified me for free delivery. I thought I would have to spend a minimum of $50 to $60 onnjust one booster that is a five point harness. One other thing, I work in trauma so I'm very big on safety and these are very safe. I put my kids in very securely, yes they're a little limited with room, like in a regular car seat but they're comfortable and my guys are pretty antsy in their seats. Highly recommend.

    It's what you would expect for something that inexpensive. Of course it's not as nice as it's $300 competitors and the plastic is a little more chinsy but if it meets all the requirements and you can't afford one and you need one, this is your chair!

  • Great car seat for the price

    Great 5-point car seat that can also be used as a booster seat when your childs size/weight dictates. Cover can be removed for cleaning, but make sure you pay attention when disassembling the straps. Not very much padding, but I purchased this seat for a second vehicle and will only be used for short trips. Great value.

    This was my second time buying a high back booster car seat and I have only one minor issue with this one. There is a detachable cup holder that comes off really easily. My four year old had it detached in just a few seconds after being buckled in, leaving no where to store his sippy cup. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with this car seat.

    This car seat seems comfortable, I use it for both a 15 month and a 2 year old. Once properly buckled in it seems very secure. I love the cup holder, no more pulling off the road to retrieve a sippy cup that fallen into the floor. I had been looking for a car seat for under $50 and this one is by far the best one I have seen and well under budget.

  • Super product for little one!

    7/12/2014 by LadybugGrandma from Eugene, OR

    We needed to get 3 seats across in our Prius with one child still needing the harness. By putting this seat in the middle, the other 2 backless boosters can still be buckled with the help of an adult. I'm going to get seatbelt extenders to see if they can buckle themselves. Great for getting all three to school and back. I would not use this for a long ride, as the padding is thin.

    A little wide. Cannot use the cup holder because the seat it too wide. We have two Grandchildren and bought a traditional car seat for the younger one. Was a little disappointed that the two seat were not offered in the same pattern. The price was good, purchased both seats for a little over $80. Fits my two year old well and he will be able to use it for years to come. Easy to install using the latch system.

    The Cushion in the car seat could have been better. No matter how tight you put it and fix it in the car, it gives a feeling that the car seat moves on to a side. I got this car seat for our 3 year old son. You could get a better product by paying few extra bucks. We got this when it was in rollback and I regret buying it.

    We got this car seat for my sons first front facing car seat. He is 1 year old and weighs 24 pounds. His head doesn't hang forward when he sleeps so that's a plus! lol The one thing I don't like is how the cup holder is. He cant reach it yet. Besides that its a great car seat all around. I've had them for a few months now. I bought 2 because they were on sale for $40 a piece. Great deal. :)

    3/24/2014 by Momwithapurpose from San Gabriel Valley, CA

    We bought this chair as a backup for our second car which is used for work. It is light and very portable, and the cup holder is nice. The only drawback is where most car seats have four sets of strap holes in the back, this only has two. For that reason I've rated it four instead of five.

    I originally bought this type of car seat for my child when he turned 1 in 2006. I ended up buying one for my other son in 2009 and they currently still use both. I love that I can take the covers and straps off and wash them fairly easily. ( this is good with dirty boys.) Also I was able to keep the same seat from 1 year old all the way til they no longer need a seat. The straps adjust to different heights, then you can take them off and use the car's seat belt. You can also use the latch system for easy install. When I need to use another car, it pulls right out with no hassle! If I have anymore kids I will be purchasing another one of these.

  • This is a wonderful booster seat!

    5 stars

    2/18/2014 by lillyam78 from Port Hueneme, CA

    My child is young, but tall and heavy. He's gone through two car seats (one infant and one convertible), but he's exceeded the maximum weight. Because he is young, I spent some time researching the regulations and I even called the CHP to make sure I wouldn't be breaking any law switching my two-year-old to a booster seat and at the end of my research the bottom line is that as long as the child meets the manufacturer's height and weight requirements, I'm not breaking any law; however the most important thing to consider is the child's safety. At his age, it's best to have the harness seats for the child's protection and I don't recall seeing any other booster seats like this one. It is actually pretty light weight and we purchased two; one for each vehicle. They are not expensive and my toddler seems very comfortable in them. I like that they have the little removable cup holder. I like to use it in my car, but my husband doesn't like it in his truck so this seat still works for both. I'm very happy with my purchase and I'd definitely recommend this item.

    I purchased this car seat for my 2 year old, its sturdy and looks comfortable, my child likes it. only if there is more padding, it will be perfect. Looks like you can use the 5 point buckle, and car belt later on when they out grow it, so it will last a long time.

  • Good for the price

    4 stars

    12/25/2013 by FLAMOM2008 from WI

    For the price paid this car seats works great, specially if you have more than one car and you're not planning to use it on a day by day basis (second car seat). It was very easy to install, the only problem I have is that it's a little difficult to open the belt to take the child out. You have to push hard (push in on the button) on the belt buckle in front of the chest to release it. In our other car seat you hold the two sides of the buckle and push in and that was very easy. Also the buckle that locks in between the legs is very hard to push in. It's almost impossible to do if I'm wearing my winter gloves and then when I take off the gloves, it very hard since I have medium length finger nails and it's just too hard to push it in. Once pushed in it doesn't just release the belt. I have to push in and also pull up the belt for it to be released and come out of the buckle.

    I have been using car seats forever! now my grand kids are in car seats. This was a great low cost car seat because it is light weight and easy to install. The sides are narrow and fit in smaller sized cars. This seems so much nicer than the ones we used, and are still made today. not bulky. only downfall is that the fabric of the brown/tan part is slipery and feels very cold in winter. I think the slippery helps the kid's bum get in the right place faster though.

Easy to follow instruction for installing and adjusting and the real impressive think is its made in the USA, the cover is washable, light weight and can be used with any seatbelt, I would recommend this car seat.

    My daughter loves her new big girl seat. We love the neutral color so we can use it for our son when he is big enough. Although we are happy with the seat we received we were not happy with the condition the seat was delivered. I picked up the seat from the store on the day it was delivered and the box was already open and had to be taped back together (but it still didn't close the box) When I opened the box o get the seat out there was a half empty bottle of water in the box with the seat. Careless delivery.

    I bought two of these for traveling with my kids. They got on the airplane seat well, and are easy to transport. They install easily and come with a cup holder, which is always useful. I was told by a car seat technician that these seats were the best lightweight restraints available. Any parent who needs an economical and safe car seat, or travel seats, needs to look at these.

Overall, the high back booster is of great quality for a low price! I am amazed to even find a high booster seat for so low! I have been searching for a booster seat which is under $100.00

    We got this chair for our son who is 1.5 years old. We are having now this Cosco one and another one from safety 1st. I would say that by comparing pricing, Cosco is much cheaper and it is doing its job. It is as safe as the expensive one, with adjustable seat belt, with hooks to attach to the back of the car. May be the only disadvantage is the lesser amount of cushions in the seat, compared to the safety 1st one. But again, it is OK, we have been using it so far with no problems and the children like it.

    The seat will serve its purpose, I was a little disappointed in the quality of padding. I have my 2 year old niece a few days a week and she doesn't sit in it for long rides so I am keeping it. I do like the size if the seat and it is easy to install. I just wish the padding on the seat was better. I have booster seats with better padding!

    This is a very basic car seat. We are using it as the car seat to keep at the grandparents. As such it is very practical and light, at a great price. We had one for our older child and then decided to buy another for our younger child. I would not use this as my main car seat for my 2.5 year old, since it does not provide an extra/special support if he sleeps. But for my 6 year old, I have no complaints.

    I have 3 kids all in different car seats. The bottom of this car seat has little legs on the back that dig into leather seats leaving indentations. I tried folding a hand towel and placing it on both sides under the legs but this didn't work. No other problems with the seat itself but had to buy another seat with a flat flush base for the life of my seats! I don't know if it happens with cloth seats but save your leather and buy a flat base.

  • Good product

    This is a good product in that it serves the purpose of a car seat and can be used as a booster seat as well. It is also cost effective. I am a grandmother who bought this seat for my grandson when he comes to town to visit, he's 22 months and this car seat was perfect because it was not too expensive and it served the purpose. I would highly recommend this product.

  • Easy to install, grandma friendly operation.

    This is a good quality car seat, very secure. I do wish it had more padding though. Love the fast delivery!

    I got this seat a few months ago as an extra seat for carpool. I thought I had gotten a great deal for a no-frills car seat.... until my son vomited in it! I can't describe how incredibly difficult it is to remove the fabric from the seat. I have an Evenflo Chase and and Evenflo Triumph and have used many other car seat brands in the past and I have NEVER had trouble figuring out how to remove the fabric. With this seat, I was sweating and I had to get my husband to step in, who was only able to remove it by using a screwdriver and lots of elbow grease! In addition, the holes in the fabric (which are supposed to allow the straps and assorted clips through) are WAY too small. It took a whole lot of yanking and pulling to get them out! I'm dreading putting the fabric back on at this point. I wish I could return this and just spend the extra few dollars on a better brand! On that note, if you happen to have a child who doesn't eat or drink in the car and never ever throws up or has any other sort of accident involving putrid bodily fluids... this car seat it just fine for you.

    I finally broke down and bought a car seat to put in my car for my 4 year old grandson. I always had to have my son put in their extra one if I wanted to take him with me. This is a great car seat but I have noticed two problems since I put it in my car a week ago. My grandson is having trouble getting it latched. It has a red button to push to unlatch it and it's really hard to push. I'm hoping it will loosen up with use. Also the cup holder on the side with nothing in it leans down towards the seat and if you put a drink in it, it drops almost to your seat. It doesn't pull in and out like the ones I've seen. You just attach it to the side of the car seat and put the padding over it. I really wish it worked. Since my car is new I don't want things spilled in it. My grandson now uses the cup holders built into my car but they are a little hard for him to reach. If you want the cup holders, this may not be the car seat for you. It's a nice car seat and I decided to keep it mainly because I didn't want to have to go through the return process, as easy as it is.

  • Perfect for what I need!

    As fast as kids grow, I was loath to spend money on a car seat only to have to upgrade it in a few short months. This one can be used with a harness, and then as a booster with a seat belt for when my son is big enough. No upgrade necessary. That's what won me, not to mention the low cost. The seat itself is pretty decent quality and is small and light weight, easy to hook up and remove. Also looks good and my son seems comfortable in it. The cover can easily be removed to wash it. I'm very happy with this purchase.

  • Ok for the price

    I bought this car seat because it was the only reasonably priced booster I could find that had some kind of recline. However, I want to use a seat belt with the seat, and there seems to be no way to take the existing harness out. I've debated returning the seat for that reason along with the fact that the seat just looks cheap. I bought an evenflo car seat at the same time and notice the difference in quality.

    I was looking for a second car seat when we purchased an additional car. This more than fit the bill. Like others have said about this product, there's not much padding on the seat, but I don't see how that would matter if you are just running around town. This may be an issue if you are taking a long trip. Seat sits straight up, which my daughter loves because she can see outside better. All in all a great value for the money!

    Great booster/car seat for the money. I needed a second booster seat for my 2.5 year old. I really didn't want to spend a ton of money, and found this Cosco one at Walmart. It's a good quality seat for the money. Simple design, easy to install, and seems comfy for my little one. We will be able to use this seat for many years to come.

  • Great for a boy or girl!

    This car seat was inexpensive, but well worth the money. It is gender neutral and I am so glad it has the 5-pt harness option for the younger toddler and can grow with them into a booster that uses the car seatbelt. It is a GREAT car seat all around and worth the investment.

    Good value for the price, we bought it so Grandma can also have a car seat. She uses it once or twice a week. The car seat already had the straps in place, was easy to secure in the vehicle, but does not seem like it would be comfortable for longer drives as the only padding comes from the cover.

  • Great item.

    Installed easily (using the LATCH system) and works great. I like the buckles/straps on it, which open, close, and adjust easily. The cup holder works well, too, although it would be nice if it was deeper. Still, it holds sippy cups just fine and they don't fall out. Lastly, I like that it will act as a booster seat down the road when my son is older/bigger. I would definitely recommend this product!

    I am actually back to buy my THIRD one of these... and the other two are still going strong! I have a more expensive comfortable seat in the car that we use the most, but honestly I think that this one is just as safe and at only 20% of what I paid for my other one! I have one in my mom's car, one in my baby sitter's car and now I am buying one for my husband's car. My daughter is 5.5 but tiny... we tried just a high back booster (without a 5 point harness) when she outgrew her other seat in there but I just am NOT comfortable with it... we'll hold on to it in a pinch, but I am back for one of these for another year or so at least. Oh, my ex husband has one of these in his car for her as well. She's has been in one on a semi regular basis for over a year now and she doesn't complain :) I have removed the cover... it is a job to re-thread it all correctly but it can be done. It is a bit of a pain to adjust compared to "fancier" seats as you have to uninstall it and actually take apart the belt and all, but it isn't terribly complicated.

    this was bought by my MIL without my knowledge-it lasted my son about a year MAYBE a year and half. it is a complete waste of $40. at 3 years old he has a couple months at best before he outgrows the harness. the straps need to be at or above the shoulders and at 37" tall he is about to be above them. there is only14.75" from the seat to the top slot so your childs torso (measure sitting from bum to shoulders) has to be shorter than that. Take your $40 and invest in a better seat.

  • Pretty good , but not perfect

    12/2/2012 by ehauxe

    The seat is very nice, if simple. No bells and whistles. The only negatives I'd give it is the fabric is a little on the cheap side, the padding is weak, and the shoulder pad slots are a little too far apart. Wish they were closer and there were three of them. I can't imagine it would've cost that much to improve those few issues and make this a best buy, but it is what it is. For the price, it's great value. Fit in the car pretty well. The cover IS removable, and can be washed, though I can't vouch what state it will come out in once washed. Consumer Reports rated it well for safety (but hopefully, I never have to find out). So, if you want something for long rides, or looks "substantial" like a Britax, this is not for you. Otherwise, I think it's great value for the money.

    Our 2 yr old is a big boy, over 3ft tall and 40lbs. This carseat is great because I have the option of still using the 5pt harness on him instead of the seatbelt restraint which I felt he was too young to understand to stay in. The only issue we have, and I don't feel like it can be blame in the carseat is that when he falls asleep his head flops forward. It's driving me nutty.

    I really like this carseat. My little boy is 2 and weighs 32 lbs, and he is 36 inches tall, and this is very comfortable for him. I love the 5 point harness and the fact that it has the LATCH system. It sits very securely in the car without any wiggling, and he seems to really like it. The only thing I would change is to make the padding thicker, as it seems really thin to me--But he seems to like it anyway, so it's not a big issue. I would definitely buy this again.

  • Great Car seat!!!!!

    We purchased this carseat for my 2 year old as an extra for a grandparents car and it's not the best quality. The plastic pieces that feed the straps into the car seat on the seat do not stay in and my daughter constantly complained about the straps being too close to the sides of her neck. Luckily this will only be used a couple times a year when visiting out of state family, but if it were for everyday use I would definitely have returned it.

    We needed a car seat at our vacation destination as we were not traveling with our car seat. This worked out perfectly. It was easy to install, fit the child well and was lightweight enough to move from car to car when needed. Cost seemed a bit higher than in the store, but the convenience of not having to deal with lugging a car seat through airports made it worth it.
