As a participant of the Generation Graco program, I’ve received compensation for my time and product samples for review purposes. Opinions are my own.
When Kora & Logan were babies one of my biggest dilemmas was which car seat to get them. After they grew to be toddlers, then I had to go through it all over again – the hours of research, the agony of which seat was best, until finally making what I hoped was the right decision. Then they kept growing and were in backless boosters, it wasn’t as difficult to pick one, but I still did my research to make sure they were riding in the correct seat. It wasn’t that long ago and these days I see that car seats transition with kids.
In fact, since I was recently asked to be part of the Generation Graco Moms Panel I learned about and was impressed with the Graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat which is their newest car seat and it grows with your child helping you #ExtendTheTrip. It looks like a great car seat with lots of amazing features.
Since we aren’t in need of a seat for a baby, Graco was kind enough to send us the Graco TurboBooster LX for review.
This backless booster is fantastic because it’s perfect for kids from 40 – 100 lbs. While it might surprise you, but even in 4th grade Logan has some friends still in backless boosters. This is because they haven’t hit the right size or weight limit yet and the seatbelts just don’t sit properly on them.
Here’s a look at Logan sitting in the Graco TurboBooster LX:
They are both still light enough to use this backless booster. Some things that I really like about this booster include:
One Hand Front Adjust Latch System
Secure Connection Keeps Booster In Place When Seat Is Unoccupied
Integrated Cup Holder For Snacks & Drinks
Storage Compartment for Sunglasses & Other Favorite Items
Height Adjustable Arm Rests
Removable & Machine Washable Padding
The padding is easy to remove and is machine washable which is a simple and convenient way to keep it clean
The Graco TurboBooster LX also has been safety tested and has some impressive stats:
- Engineered & crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS 213
- Side Impact Tested1 ; New Car Assessment Program (NCAP)-peak Crash Force approximately 2X Car Seat Standard2.; Extreme Car Interior Temperatures3 1
- In addition to meeting or exceeding all applicable US safety standards, the TurboBooster LX™ Backless Booster with Affix Latch System has been side impact tested
I’m impressed with the Graco TurboBooster LX and recommend parents who are in the market for a backless booster to take a look. Not only are the features listed above impressive, but it’s stylish and trendy too – and most of according to my kids, comfortable!
