Step up to the "Big Boy" seat

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Same basic seat as the "Delux" sans gimmicky crap for 1/2 the price

Cons:Not as secure as a LATCH anchored toddler seat

The Bottom Line: Why pay double?


One day at WalMart I saw the Evenflo Big Kid Booster seat marked $29.99. Virtually the same big boy seat I've seen elsewhere marketed as the "Delux" for $59.99 I'm not normally one to go cheap on my child's safety but it was the very seat I had priced elsewhere minus a few cheesy marketing gimmicks. It is the same plastic base, same seatback and same armrests as the "DeLuxe" model that sells for literally double the price. The armrests are marketed as "swivel" on the DeLuxe model but I could see no additional articulation on the display model at "Tarzhey". Additionally the DeLuxe model has some additional padding around the edges of the base and the "activity lights" that will be undoubtedly be left on overnight and never used again.

If you absolutely must have the activity lights and head pillow of the delux model they are availiable on page 20 of the owner's manual.


ASSEMBLY:
Remarkably easy.

1: Snap the armrests in.
2: Snap the backrest in.
3: Attach the seat pad.
4: Place in backseat.
5: Put child in seat.
6: Adjust seat back height so that shoulder belt crosses midway between child's shoulder and neck.

That's it.

Okay it's not as secure as his toddler seat but I didn't have to cram my hands into tiny places praying that I got the LATCH anchor on properly totally blind.

FEATURES:
Two cupholders and little containers. My little guy LOVES this feature. His cup is right there and there are extra compartments for "valuable things" like plastic soldiers, small action figures, flashlight, HotWheels etc.... Everytime he rides in daddy's car he opens up the cupholders to find what treasure he left there last time.

That and did I mention that I didn't have to fight with the LATCH anchors?

CAUTION:
Make very certain that your child is old enough to understand that they must NEVER release the seatbelt while the car is on. My little boy was very sneaky and waited about two weeks before he experimented with the little red button. As a consequence, he rolled out of the seat while I was making a turn. We were very lucky. He learned his lesson and now asks if he may unbuckle after the car is off. Scared the #e!! outta' me though.
