User Rating: Excellent
Ease of Use:
Pros:Easy to use, durable, LED lights, cup & snack holders, converts into "standard" booster.
Cons:Not very many style choices.
The Bottom Line: I recommend this product to parents who have children who are not ready for boosters, but are too big for a traditional car seat.
I bought this product when my smallest was ready to go into a front facing car seat and my oldest was almost ready for a full fledged booster at Sears for about $60. I feel that this car seat / booster is a great value for the money, as I will probably be using it for the next five years (the back detaches to make a more standard booster).

As someone who has trouble "figuring out" car seats, I find this one extremely easy to use, only having to buckle it in as you would a standard booster, rather than having to deal with all the hooks and latches of a more traditional car seat. That being said, I have had way less trouble with this car seat than others that I have owned.This booster is lightweight, easy to move from vehicle to vehicle and not bulky. My three year old loves the LED lights on the headrest and finds them very useful for playing games or looking at picture books during night time trips. The LED lights do not burn out quickly - there have been a few times where they were left on overnight; and, well, it's been a year or so and I still have not replaced the lights. This booster has a cup holder that comes out of one side, and a snack holder that comes out of the other (which is also great for holding games or books!).
As far as cleaning this booster, the cover detaches very easily and is machine washable. The hard plastic construction of this seat makes it very easy to wipe down, no scrubbing required!!
This is my favorite car seat of the three or four I have went through.
