Graco Tranzitions - Presto Change-o! Review and Giveaway

imageGraco is on a roll with the introduction of the Tranzitions to their impressive and growing lineup of seats across all stages. See a video tour here.

The Tranzitions, currently a Babies R Us exclusive for $239.99 in an eye-catching green and black fashion called Spring, is a forward-facing only harnessed seat that converts to a high back booster and then a backless booster. True to its name it transitions — ahem, tranZitions – through these stages with ease. This seat is appropriate for kids who are ready to forward-face (best practice, and our opinion, means at least two years old, ideally older).

Forward facing in harness mode:
For children who are 22-65lbs (10-30kg) AND 27-49″ (69-125cm) tall AND able to sit upright unassisted AND are at least one year old AND have the harness coming from at or just above the shoulders.

High back or backless booster mode (with lap/shoulder belt of course):
For children who are 40-100lbs (18-45kg) AND 43-57″ (110-145cm) tall AND at least four years old (best practice, and in our opinion, means more like 5 or 6 because maturity matters).

Tranzitions specs:

  • Lowest harness height with body pillow: 11″
  • Highest harness height without body pillow: 18″
  • Two crotch buckle positions: 5.5″ with body pillow, 7.5″ without body pillow
  • Width at widest point: 19″ with cup holders / 17.5″ without cup holders / 18″ at arm rests
  • Width at back bottom edge: 14.5″
  • Seat weight: 12.5 lbs
  • Expires 7 years from date of manufacture

 

Notable features:

  • No-rethread harness (adjust harness height without undoing the harness or uninstalling the seat through eight head rest positions)
  • Install with UAS to a child weight of 45lbs
  • May use UAS in booster mode to secure seat
  • Smooth harness adjuster
  • Harness pads for comfort at neck
  • Machine washable cover
  • Fast and easy conversion from harness mode to booster mode
  • Two cup holders – but use is optional, so shave 1.5″ off the width by not using them
  • Easy access storage for unused UAS connectors
  • Ships semi-assembled but sets up easily in seconds

Fit to Vehicle:image

The Tranzitions is slim, lightweight, easy to move around, and installed well in most places we tested it. Installation with UAS was quick and easy, and although the UAS connectors are the basic hook-style ones, the UAS adjuster is super smooth and tightening and loosening is a breeze.

Tip: pull up the interior fabric panel to expose the belt path so you can get more leverage and a better angle when tightening. Works for UAS or seat belt!

There will naturally be a bit of a gap behind the lower back area of the Tranzitions – minimize it as much as possible, and in harness mode ensure there is 20% or less of overhang off the front edge of the vehicle seat (no overhang in booster mode). If in doubt contact Graco for feedback.

Also make sure that any forward-leaning vehicle head restraints are not forcing the Tranzitions head rest forward. If it’s possible to remove the vehicle head rest (check your vehicle manual to see if it’s required to stay put for use with car seats) then as with many car seats, the fit will be better. Make sure to always use the tether strap and hook, no exceptions.

A sampling of the vehicles we tested:

2012 Honda Odyssey captain’s seat, Tranzitions head rest all the way up. Forward-leaning Odyssey head rest may be an issue at mid-height but fits like a glove at full Tranzitions height, and also at lower head rest positions. Difficulty level: with UAS = easy, with seat belt = medium.

2012 Honda Odyssey captain's seat with seat belt installation, Tranzitions head rest all the way up.  img_5412

 

2012 Ford F-150 Super Cab (extended cab with half doors). NO overhang – woot! – and narrow enough to install beautifully on the ’40’ side and still leave room for the ’60’ side to fold. Tranzitions is a very good option for extended cab trucks, or vehicles with shallow back seats, particularly if the vehicle head rest is permitted to be removed. The slim tether adjuster mechanism fed through the tether routing loop no problem (for those unfamiliar with truck tethering…just smile and nod). Difficulty level: with UAS = easy, with seat belt = easy.

2012 Ford Focus hatchback titanium trim level with leather. This Focus permits the removal of the vehicle head restraint when installing a car seat and this results in a much better fit to vehicle. This fit tip is true for most forward facing seats – check your vehicle manual to see if this is an option if you are having trouble. Difficulty level: with UAS = easy,  with seat belt = medium (due to the fixed and forward-leaning buckle stalks).

2011 Dodge Grand Caravan in the 3rd row centre and also a 2nd row captain’s seat (those are the locations with a tether anchors and so the only places this seat can be used when in harness mode). Similar belt scrunching happening as with the Focus above, but doable. Difficulty level: UAS = easy, seat belt = hard.

Fit to Child

We are so thrilled to report that the Tranzitions fits reliably and comfortably in all modes. Although the minimum use for harness mode is 22lbs, 27″, sitting upright, and one year old, we don’t encourage use of it with children that small. Keep them rear facing as long as possible in one of many seats that can do it with ease. For those who are 2+ however, the ease of use features of the Tranzitions — harness pads, two crotch buckle positions, optional body pillow — will make for a happy ride. Our kid testers found it comfortable, including during a 2 hour drive, despite minimal padding in the bum area. There are no restrictions for weight, harness position, or crotch buckle position, so the removable machine washable body pillow is much appreciated.

We really liked the fit on our smallest tester all the way up to our biggest — and so did they.

Age 6, 52lbs, 48″ tall, using the top harness position with about 1″ of torso height still to grow.

Booster mode — both high back and backless — had similarly excellent fit. Our experienced booster riders also reported that the Tranzitions was easy to buckle as well, an important part of proper and consistent booster use. Belt fit was reliable, and in the vehicles we tested the shoulder belt retracted smoothly when our testers leaned forward and then leaned back. Remember boostered kids have freedom of movement in their seat belt, just like we do, and if they readjust their position it’s really important that the shoulder belt stays snug as they do it. No overhang of the vehicle seat is permitted in booster mode.

These 6-8.5 year old (50-65lbs, 48″-56″ tall) testers are showing off the excellent belt fit at the shoulder and lap.

image image image

And our older, bigger testers model the backless booster:

img_5536 img_5529

Important to note: with the back on the Tranzitions the child sits further forward in the seat, ideal for smaller kids or those with shorter legs. With the back off and using as a backless booster kids should scoot their bums back…meaning the seat pan is now longer. If the child’s legs are too short to bend naturally at the edge of the Tranzitions we recommend putting the back on so they can sit comfortably, and avoid slouching. We all know what happens when we sit on a couch that’s really deep…we slouch and slide around to get comfortable, which is not okay when in a booster seat because it usually means the belt fit is no longer ideal.

Below is the same child in highback booster mode and backless booster mode. Her legs aren’t long enough to use the backless mode comfortably, but at six years old and as a beginner booster rider we’d recommend she ride in highback mode for a good while yet anyway.

This change in fit really emphasizes how well this seat grows with your child!

image image

Conversion to booster mode, and back again, was so slick. Graco has designed some clever features into this process, such as the ease with which the crotch buckle can be removed (no broken nails or cursing!), and the nifty storage location for the splitter plate (the bit that the harness attaches to at the back). One booster tester found she could feel the splitter plate under her bum while in backless mode, but couldn’t in high back mode; the other two testers didn’t notice it at all. Make sure to store all of the bits needed for harness mode in a safe place.

image image

UAS can be used when in high back booster mode, a nice convenience feature, but if you do not have lower anchors in the spot you’re using the seat, or if you’re using it in backless mode, then teach your child to buckle it when empty so it doesn’t become a projectile for you.

 

Final Thoughts:

Graco’s Tranzitions is great value for the price, and is slim, lightweight, and actually works well in all three modes! Often seats that boast multiple modes tend to excel at one but are a bit lacklustre in others, but not this seat! It’s certainly easiest to install with lower anchors (UAS), and they can be used to a child weight of 45lbs. We recommend test-fitting with a seat belt installation as well, because not all kids are booster ready right at that weight. We’re pleased to add the Tranzitions to our list of favourite seats, and are excited to see what Graco has next in store for us!

  • Marianne R.

    Hum, well my middle is 47″. So possibly her, harnessed for a couple more inches. There’s a smaller version up and coming but she’s still rear facing.

  • sophia middleton

    This would be great to switch my 4.5yr old into! I need something narrow for 3 across in a Ford edge!

  • Carly K

    Looks like a great seat to use with a variety of kids! Love the UAS storage hooks too!

  • amy

    Can’t wait to see one of these in person. Looks like it’d work well for many!

  • Toni

    I could use this for both my harnessed FF kiddos. 3.5, almost 5

  • I love the no-rethread harness! How awesome is that!! It will be great for transporting kids of different ages and sizes!

  • We would use this for any of our foster children who were past rear facing in our Cosco Next

  • I love that it’s narrow so would be great for tight fits.

  • Jessi

    This seat could be a great next step for my 4.5 year old. Still harnessed for now but will need a harness to HBB in s little while

  • Patricia

    Looks awesome, hope to use with my nieces 🙂

  • Kristen S

    As a small car owner, this may help my 3 across situation.

  • Wendy Ann Deslauriers

    I’d likely use it for my 5 yr old, so, harnessed and hbb mode and eventually lbb mode.

  • Stacey G

    Live that UAS is so easy! I’m in the market for a harness/booster that is easy to install, easy to harness and will eventually make a good booster. The five year old will also be happy that’s it’s green like her foonf!

  • Ashley W

    I like how slim it seems to be, especially without the cup holders.

  • Jessica

    Oh what an amazing seat! I love how bright the green is. I am a huge Graco lover, always have been!

  • Neat storage area for that splitter plate!

  • Jessie Morrison

    Would be a spare seat for the almost 3 yr old at grandma’s, I’ve been waiting to see this seat in person,i love the colour.

  • I love the no rethread harness as I often drive with my friend and her children. I also love that you can use uas in booster mode.

  • Barbara Zacchigna

    Love the no-thread harness, and uas in booster! After replacing some crashed seats and a different vehicle entering the picture, would love another option, for a 3 across.

  • Amy Y

    Love the optional cup holders so I have to put 3 across I know I will have the extra space. Love Graco products and their costumer service too!

  • Elise

    Great review! Great seat! Thank you for your work!

  • Natalie Dickson

    Would be a great option to move my currently rear facing 5.5yr old into when her radian expires a few weeks after her 6th birthday in December. She’d be able to using it as a 5-point until she hits the limits probably about 8-9 (she’s teeny tiny), then booster 🙂

  • Diana

    the last seat that I will need to buy! And the colour is just awesome!

  • Awesome seat, and another giveaway! I need another seat for my 4 year old!

  • Abby F

    One kid 41″ and the other 45″ so I would be using harness mode for a while

  • Janice K

    I have 2 kids forward-facing at the moment that could use it harnessed, and 2 kids that can use it in hbb mode. That’s 3 kids total…4th kid could use it harnessed too but is still rear-facing for now. I’d love to try this narrow option!

  • Diana L

    I’d love one for my son when he’s forward facing. It looks like a great option for my husband’s Mazda 3!I love that is narrow, lightweight, and has great limits!

  • Barbie D.

    I have 3 children this would work for: 5, 7, and 9! Each kid a different mode!

  • I’d use it in 5 point harness mode for my 4 year old. Seat belt install with top tether.
    This seat is for children at least 2, 27 inches and and 22 pounds until they max out the harness at 65 pounds and 49 inches. Straps must be above shoulders.
    Booster mode is preferable 5-6 years old and 40 pounds until 43-57 inches tall until they max out the booster.

  • Danielle

    We would use it in FFing harnessed mode with our 4.5 year old kindergartener!

  • Elise

    Love that it’s slim and light weight! And rare are 3 in 1’s that perform ell in all modes! Awsome.

  • Rebecca McGregor

    This would definitely ease the transition of seats between our toddler and infant. I love how slim fitting it looks, and the ease with which it fits in different vehicles!

  • Laura Work

    I’m looking for a forward facing seat for my three year old. She is currently rear facing, but will make the switch sometime in the next year. This looks like an excellent seat! We’ve been very happy with both the Graco snug ride, and myride up to this point!

  • I love that this works well in each mode and is budhet friendly.

  • Melissa Terry

    I love that the slim tether adjuster makes it easier to install in a truck!

  • Kara W.

    This would be perfect for my almost 6yr old. She is almost too tall for her Roundabout and only 35lbs… She would use the harness until she hits 40+ lbs, then it would be a fabulous high back booster for her.

  • Ani W

    I would use it for my giant 2.5 year old ( 39 inches and 50lbs). In harness mode. The seat is great for us because is narrow so I can puzzle it in three across in my Ford Escape.

  • Jessica

    We need another bus for her to ride on the school bus with dad. At 3y/o she is still rear facing in our cars but I would love a great fitting seat with some extras as her spare seat. I like the lime green too!

  • Kristin

    I love how narrow and light this seat is! It would be a great addition to the grandparents vehicle if they need to transport both my kids at the same time.

  • Brianne Parnell

    Would be a great seat for my 3 year old to transition into once I turn her forward facing – would be long lasting given its functionality on all modes – & love the no rethread harness, slim profile, & ability to use the UAS in booster mode

  • Leah

    Love the no-thread harness and how narrow it is!

  • Julia Ortillan

    I would use the seat for my nearly 5 yo, 43″, 42lbs.

  • Katie Charette

    My almost 3 year old has 2″ to go in her rear facing seat. This would be an awesome replacement for 3 across when she hits the limit 🙂

  • Amanda linton

    This seat is great for kiddos ideally 2 years plus both in harness and booster mode. It’s awesome that it can both be a high back and backless booster also!

  • Pam

    I love this seat because it’s great in three modes, so at an amazing price point it’s the last seat my 4.5 year old will need!

  • I love hoe it is light weight and narrow , thanks!

  • Tennille W

    I love the no-rethread harness, the slim width and the bright colour!

  • Katie S

    Hmm, I love the no-rethread harness! But realistically, it also catches my eye because we are soon needing to replace an expiring convertible, and a combination makes the most sense, and it would fit well in my f150!

  • Wow! Finally a combination seat that looks like a really nice booster! I could use this in harness mode for my 35lb 4yo & 40lb 6yo. 6yo could also use it in highback mode. My 60lb 8yo could probably still fit in the highback mode, and would definitely use it as a backless 🙂

  • Carolynn

    2.5, 72 cm & 28 lbs 🙂 also have a 4 month old, 18 lbs and 62 cm to use it one day too 🙂

  • This is what I’ll be considering for out next seat! I’m a big fan of the no-rethread harness.

  • Rhiannon ryder

    Hope to use with my 3 year old, for what looks like a long time to come!

  • Mariane LL

    I would use it for my almost 8yo. She hit 65lb so we would use it in hbb mode. We have a tight 3 across and buckling her Parkway is a tough job.

  • Amanda Logan

    It would be great to be able to keep my kiddos harnesses in daddy’s car for a while longer

  • Alison Bileske

    Would love to win this seat for my son who will be close to 3 (he’s 30months now) when I will need to give his current seat to his sister!!

  • Amelia

    I love how narrow it is. And a seat with a no-rethread harness is a must for me having different daycare kids every day.

  • Kate

    This seat sounds great!

  • Seanine Linnenbruegger

    Most appealing feature for me is how well it fits in narrow seats. Both sets of grandparents have tricky vehicles, and we’ve had to move to a high back booster in one vehicle but the Tranzitions has given me hope that we might get a good fit in the Jeep. Fingers crossed as I would love an option to keep him harnessed in all vehicles (age 5.5) until he maxes out the limits of his seats, rather than have the seat mode dictated entirely by an unruly truck!
    I’m also loving the fit in the 3rd row of the Dodge Grand Caravan that you tested as it gives many families another fabulous option.
    Thumbs up GRACO!!
    Only con, I wish that GRACO had opted to list 2 years of age as the minimum age requirement.

  • Sarah

    My almost 4 yo is ready to turn FF and this seat would be great for him

  • Stephanie Jones

    I would use this for my almost 5-year-old in harness mode. Love the colour!

  • Love the green, and the no rethread harness is a huge positive!

  • Marina

    It’s hard to chose just one feature, probably how slim it is.

  • Jenine

    For us this would be used in the second vehicle, and the no rethread harness would allow it to fit both my forward facing almost five year old and (usually rear facing in main vehicle) forward facing 2.5 year old with ease, without having t uninstall and fix the straps depending on who was riding at the moment!

  • Gillian Eckhardt

    Looks like a fantastic option for forward facing kiddos! Somwthing we will definitely consider after our extended rear facing time ends 😉

  • Colleen

    I like the no rethread harness and the narrowness of this seat.

  • Lee-Anna Semenyna

    I would give this seat to my big girl, and pass her current seat down to her infant sister. It would be a perfect addition to our family!

  • Tannis W

    We would plan to use the seat in the forward facing harness mode for my child and go from there. She is 2 1/2 yrs, about 30lbs and I honestly have no idea how tall she is right now!

  • Holly

    I would get slot of use out of this with my 3 boys

  • Tracey

    We desperately need another car seat for our tall three year old and this looks perfect!

  • Bronwyn McPhail

    Love the good transition that this makes! We are in the market for another seat (it will be for our middle child), and this sounds like it will last for a long time 🙂

  • HBB mode for my 7 year old!

  • Sue Wilson

    Excited for the price point for this seat and it’s excellent review. When the time comes to switch seats around for my kids I’ll be looking into this seat for sure!

  • Kelly

    I really like how long the Tranzitions will keep kids in a 5pt harness. I love the lime colour and I like that my tall-torso child will fit well in this seat for a long time.

  • Meghan Elliott

    I love the length of time this seat can be used and that it’s so slim! It’s hard to find budget friendly slim seats for 3 kids that fit in a car!

  • Meggan

    We love our other Graco car seats and this looks like it would be perfect for my petite 4.5 year old that we are hoping to keep harnessed for as long as possible.

  • I love the versatility of it. Add the no rethread and washable cover.. Win win win. Awesome review!

  • Shannon

    The washable cover is great and the removable cup holders are such a smart idea.

  • marcela hindson

    this seat would be most likely used for my 2 year old.We are in search for a new seat for him for dads car.

  • Chantal N

    This seat would be perfect for our family with a 2 and 4 year old and multiple drop off and pick ups in different vehicles! We NEED this no-retread harness!!

  • Stacey

    I like the slim design. I would use it in 5 point harness mode to start. It will be great for my 3.5 yr old. Then for my 5 month old Down the road.

  • I love the no-rethread harness. It also has a decent top harness height.

  • Kristin MacColl

    Honestly, I like the machine washable cover… That would be great!

  • Andrea

    Nice to have more lightweight options.

  • Jacquie Van Dyk

    This would be a great seat for my 3.5 year old, with lots of room for him to grow!

  • Julie

    Would love to win this as my 4.5 year old is just ready to FF.

  • F Tan

    Need a car seat for the grandparents car for my 3year old. Going to be putting him FF harnessed. I wonder how this seat compares with our britax frontier

  • Jocelyn

    I love the no rethread harness. Super convenient. And neck pads are always s bonus for the kids.

  • Rebekah S

    Price point and ease of use are appealing!

  • Sheila Ford

    I like that it’s great in all modes and that I would only have to buy one seat for the rest of my son’s time in a car seat/booster.

  • Sarah B

    This would be great for our 39lb 5 year old to use in the third row of our Caravan with the offset UAS! Love the slim size of it and that it work well in all three modes without being bulky.

  • Love this seat and how versatile it is.

  • I have two of the tranzitions seat and love them. I would love to win one for my 3.5 daughters for Grandma’s cad.

  • Elise Ritter

    Love that it’s slim and lightweight, a must for littke cars!

  • I love the no re thread harness and the colour!

  • Nichelle MacDonald

    I love how narrow this seat is. I’ll have two in the back come January and will really need this seat

  • Tanya CI

    I like that this seat looks like it means we only have one more purchase in our future. Babe is still rf at almost 3 -bd still has space for now.

  • Madelynn Nelson

    I would use it in the harnessing booster forward facing mode for my 3.5 year old at 42 inches and 42 lbs. Then if I was able to pass it down to my other son I would when he was ready

  • Jill Hewitt

    I love that it’s so narrow!

  • Rosa

    I’d use it for my 3 year old, eventually in all modes, but starting in harnessed mode. I love that it works well in all its modes.

  • Danielle

    I love the versatility! Sounds like it would last a long time!

  • Tania Campagnolo

    This seat would be used for my 5.5 year old niece and 3.5 year old nephew when I am looking after them and it would be used in harness mode for both of them, (if still possible for my niece.) Then it would be used in booster mode as well for any child under my care that meets the 5 step booster ready test!

  • Karena Petersen

    We have a Caravan and it’s go to know that the seat will work, but wish that it would be easier especially since many parents who are not super informed about carseat safety will also struggle and may tolerate a less than stellar install.

  • Cassadee Scollon

    The colour is so bright and happy looking I bet my son wouldn’t have any fussing to get in this seat

  • Kaylee

    Looks like a great seat to consider for my four year old!

  • Stephanie J

    Love the no rethread harness and that it is light weight.

  • Jennifer H

    I like how this is a booster with and without a back!

  • Karlee Gagnon

    This is exactly what we are looking for. If we don’t win we will most likely be purchasing this seat!

  • Krista

    Will be good for our little one in another year!

  • nicky

    This would be perfect for my 2 year old toddler, just like your first tester!

  • Megan Kampman

    This would be a great seat to have for either of my oldest two!

  • Sharon

    Would use it in booster mode when I need to pick up a friend’s 6 year old and eventually use it ff when my oldest outgrows her seat rf

  • Amanda G

    My daughter who would be using the seat is 5 and she would be using it in the 5 point harness mode

  • Krista Toebes

    This would be the perfect seat for my 3 year old who was just turned forward a few months ago (just after he turned 3). I love that it can keep him harnessed until he’s at least 6 years old and then convert to a booster seat. This seat would seriously be perfect for our situation!

  • Selena Diepold

    I love the no rethread harness, machine washable cover and double cup holders! All amazing features that make my life easier, and the two cup holders goes hand in hand with the washable cover

  • Jolene

    I like the slim design!

  • Kelly Eatmon-Cole

    I love how narrow and lightweight the seat is, making it perfect for travel. It’s narrow enough to fit properly in an airplane seat and light enough that carrying it overhead down the aisle of the plane would be a breeze. I don’t check my daughter’s car seat with my luggage due to damage and this seat is perfect for travel. It would be so much easier than dragging around a 25-30 pound seat.

  • Christine P

    My 4.75 year old could use this! It would be awesome in harness mode for him.

  • Rebecca

    Love this option to move my son into when the next little one comes along!

  • Amanda logan

    The price seems very reasonable.

  • Ideally this seat is ideal for a child age 2 and over that is at least 22lbs. Legally, it minimally requires 1yr, 22lbs and sitting unassisted.
    This seat would be amazing as we need a second seat for dad’s car as ours is about to expire!

  • stephanie p

    Can’t wait to see this one in person!

  • Tara B

    My 3 year old would use it harnessed til 6 and then booster after! Great seat!

  • Jessica

    My 4 year old would use this in our2015 Durango.

  • Janet B

    Love the colour!

  • Kristie Keeney

    This would work for my 4.5 year old really well.

  • Jocelyn B

    This would be wonderful for either one of my girls who are 6 (41 lbs) and 3.5 (37 lbs). It would be used in harnessed mode for either one. I would love to be able to use UAS for another 4 lbs!

  • Natalie Maas

    I love that it has a no rethread harness!

  • Beth Kelly

    My 4 year old would use this in forward facing with harness mode. I’m a big fan of the no rethread harness!

  • Allison H

    Love how I would be able to use this for three across.

  • Would be used forward facing for an almost 3 yr old…

  • Marcela

    We just got a second vehicle and need new seats for our 4 and 7 year old! Sounds like this would be a perfect fit!

  • Maryanne

    I like how light it is and easy to move between vehicles!

  • Becky Cathline

    We love do trying this seat!

  • Ashley

    My son is a 33lb 4 year old and we would love it for the harnessed booster.

  • Chelci Chalmers

    Would be used in dad’s car for our 3.5yr old! She needs a new seat in his car so baby can use her sureride!

  • Shauna O

    The harness height of this seat is higher than our current one – my daughter is fast outgrowing her current seat and I would love to keep her harnessed a little longer as she is prone to napping in the car.

    I would love to have an extra seat for my 5 1/2 year old for our second vehicle; she would be using it in harness mode. It would also be great to have a spare with a no retread harness so that we could take a friend with us without constantly moving seats around.

  • Would be a great option for my 3 year old, who is now fling. She would be using it in harnessed mode 🙂

  • Karen B

    Love that it transitions with your child. Harness all the way to backless booster mode. Once we forward face our 2 year old this could work for a long time. In the meantime this would work for our 4 year old 🙂

  • Krista Murrray

    I’ve had my eye in this seat. I’d love to swap my big nautilus (which I’ve always liked) for this one,

  • Jolan holmes

    My little guy is 2 and still rear facing but we could use this seat as harnessed seat when we decide to ff him. Love that it has no rethreading

  • Kristin MacColl

    Love how light it is. It would make an excellent second seat for going between grandma’s vehicle and dad’s truck. Also I’m a huge fan of the machine washable cover!

  • Sarah

    I like that it’s narrow, so hopefully I can fit it 3 across…would be great for my son when I move him forward facing so his baby sister can use his seat!

  • Deanna Paauwe

    I have five kids ranging in age from 5.5 months to 8 years who are all using a car seat or booster of some form. I’d love to have this seat for one of the bigger kids.

  • brenda rice

    love the extra storage I need one

  • Geneva

    Sounds like it would be a great seat for a number of children! This seat would be great for one of my twin sisters or my nephew. They’re 3 and almost 3 and a half.

  • Monique L.S.

    I like that the seat does not have a large footprint, and is easy to install. It is great that it has cupholders, something my daughter always wants. and the price, for a convertible seat is awesome. Thanks!

  • My son is 8. But he is very small stature. He is 48lbs and he’s approx 4ft 2″ I have been shopping around for a new Booster seat. I don’t feel that my son is safe in the smaller one he has. This would be excellent for him! 🙂

  • Mackenzie Reiner

    I like the narrowness and beautiful green colour.

  • Tristan Harrington

    I love how narrow this seat is, and low profile. I have a very small car and find it difficult to get my son in and out of his seat without hitting his head!

  • Sara

    What a great seat for kids who have maxed out rear facing! It is a nice option for parents who only want to buy one more seat and nit have time worry about a dedicated booster later on.

  • Janet W

    This seat looks amazing! I’d love one for my almost 3 year old!

  • corrine

    This narrow profile will be great for my son!

  • Amanda

    This would be perfect for my almost two year old, especially since we’re expecting #2!!!

  • Jen M

    I would love to give this to my mom to FF my nephew and pass the convertible down to our RF little one in her car!

  • Thea

    This seat looks awesome! It would be for my 1 year old. Rear facing.

  • Kimberley

    I love how long this would last and how easy it seems to move around and change. It seems they’ve thought of everything .

  • Michelle H

    Would use the seat for one of my 3.5 yr old twins. Love the no rethread harness. Never had that on any of my seats.

  • This would be a great seat for my mom to have for my son!

  • Chamyli

    Love the light weight of the seat so higher weight limit of child allowed for uas. The no rethread harness is also great!

  • I have 4 in car seats, and 3 that this seat would be appropriate for. I would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  • Angela N

    Love it! New seat for my newly FF son!

  • Diane

    I’d use the seat for my 4 year old so good little bro could take over his seat.

  • Katrina

    I like that it’s good for shallow back seats! Sleek design is nice too 🙂

  • Kim Norman

    Love that you can use the UAS up to 45lbs and afterwards to secure tas a booster. Love the no RE thread harness. Would be great for my 5.5 year old who is currently in a comvertible seat that I would like to pass down to my newborn in the next few months or so. Would love to keep him harnessed for as long as possible!

  • Erin F

    The fact that it converts to a booster for later on is awesome! Would be perfect for me 5 year old
