  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Excellent price, durable, love the cupholders, easy to clean

Cons:Not much. Would like a hair more padding, but that's it.

The Bottom Line: Gotta have it. If you need a qaulity booster seat, without a Cadillac Escalade price tag, this is it.


To start with, this is a great seat for the money. I don't think you could get very much better for the price. This seat has pull out cupholders with square snack tray on each side, adjustable back, works well, is comfortable for my little girl, and it's very easy to get in an out of the vehicle. I want to add right now, I've seen other reviewers make comments that the padding looked like it was uncomfortable, even though their kids told them it was comfortable. Tip here for those reviewers - your kids aren't as big or as heavy as you. To you, an inch or inch and a half of padding looks thin. To your kid, that's the thickness of an arm, so it's MUCH thicker to them. They only have a little bit of weight pushing on that foam so of course it's going to offer them more comfort than a full size adult. I rather dislike reviews that I see making comments about comfort for a child, from an adults point of view. I try to look thru the eyes of my little girl and find out what the truth is according to her.

Now, having said that, let's go on to the rest of the review. Here's some of the tech specs. I'll try to keep things as condensed as possible here...

The Evenflo Big Kid Booster is your typical high back booster seat that uses the car's seatbelt to hold kid and seat in place. It's designed for kids from 30-100 pounds and up to 57 inches tall. You can also take the back off and use it as a booster seat for kids over 40 pounds. Read again just to make sure you got it, the seat uses the car's seatbelt to hold the child and seat in place. It's easy to assemble too. It comes in a rather small box, and the parts just snap together. Some parts do require a really hard push to snap in, but I would prefer that. It means it's going to be really hard to destroy and won't come apart in a crash.

Installing in the car - Open door, sit on seat. You can pr-position the seatbelt in the loop over the shoulder area, and the adjusting strap for adjusting the height of the belt across your child's shoulder if you would like, and that's it. It's super easy, takes just a few seconds, and can be easily used on passenger or driver side. Please ensure you do take the time to adjust the strap to gthe correct height for your child. This positions the strap across the shoulder at the correct height for maximum holding power and safety. This doesn't have to be readjusted if you move it between vehicles.

Comfort and Options - This is a cool chair with a pull out cupholder with little sqaure spot for snacks on each side. This is very nice because you can put the seat on either side of the car and still be able to pull out at least one side. My little girl loves this. The cupholders do hold normal size cups, sippy cups, etc with no troubles. I've seen a review or two that mention the cupholders don't look very big, then say they don't allow their kids to eat in the car. For those parents of us that don't have that luxury and need to feed the kids on the way to/from work, family events, and various other things life throws your way, the cupholder and snack holder is very handy and works well. Now, on to comfort. The padding isn't anything all that special, but I watch my girl as she gets in the seat and the padding isn't compressed to maximum, there's still bounce to it, and she loves it, so I feel that it's adequate in the comfort department. There are more plush seats on the market, but for $40, you really can't ask a seat to pamper your child in luxery.

Booster seat no back - I have not used this feature. From looking at it prior to assembly, it looks fine though. By the time your kid is that old, I think there are probably better alternatives but if you needed something to keep handy for a quick trip in another car, it would be great.

Durability - This is a heavy plastic construction seat, and it's help up perfectly for me so far. The covers are easy to remove and clean, and suprisingly enough, even seem to resist stains and such to some extent. They wipe clean surprisingly easily. Even though it's only a $40 chair, there are no sharp edges. It really seems to be a very well made product.

Price paid - $40, available pretty much every store I've seen that has child seats.

Final thoughts. I love this car seat and so does my 3 year old little girl. My wife loves it too, and now wants me to get one for her van. It's inexpensive, sturdy, and just plain does the job right.
