Read About Graco TurboBooster Highback Booster Seat In Our 2021 Review

Graco Turbobooster High Back Booster

Parents shopping for an affordable high back booster seat often settle on the TurboBooster HighBack Booster Seat from Graco. This low price option provides a safe, high back booster seat for children over 40 lbs. As children grow larger this highback seat easily converts into a backless booster seat.

Booster seats elevate children higher up in the back seat of a vehicle so that their seat belt fits correctly. A safe booster seat should move the shoulder belt away from the child’s neck and over towards the shoulder blade. Similarly, the lap belt should move off the soft abdomen area of your child and over onto the large bones of their legs and hips. Graco accomplishes this while still providing your child a comfortable ride with:

  • Head support that is height adjustable.
  • Padded armrests that adjust up and down.
  • Energy-absorbing, EPS foam.
  • Plush head and body inserts.
  • Open-loop belt guides to help buckling.

Graco fills the TurboBooster Highback Booster Seat with well thought out features that improve comfort and safety.

Will the Graco Tranzitions 3-in-1 booster car seat grow well with your child?

Graco Tranzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster Convertible Car Seat (Kyte)

The Graco Tranzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster Seat is an improvement over the older Nautilus, released back in 2007. The Tranzitions is a sleeker, narrower design that works better than the bulky Nautilus for placing multiple car seats in your vehicle.

It’s lighter too, for families who often travel or switch car seats from vehicle to vehicle. We liked that it’s also a nice-looking seat, which you don’t always find in one so budget-friendly and practical.

Key Features

  • Simply Safe Adjust harness system – no re-thread harness and headrest adjust together
  • One-handed adjustable 8 position headrest
  • 2 integrated cup holders
  • Open loop seat belt guides
  • Machine washable seat pad, body pillow, and harness covers
  • 3 color choices
  • 1-year warranty
  • 7-year expiration

Is the Graco Extend2Fit convertible car seat the answer to keep your child rear-facing longer? Find out in our new review

Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat, Gotham, One Size

Extended rear-facing (ERF) in car seats has been a huge topic in the car seat realm ever since the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended rear-facing for a minimum of 2 years. Currently, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) recommends rear-facing for as long as possible. A British study found that a minimum of 4 years is even better.

Since most infant seats max out at 25-30 pounds, it would be a good investment to buy or upgrade to a convertible car seat with a higher rear-facing limit. Whether you start out with a convertible or infant seat is up to you, though many child safety experts recommend using a dedicated infant seat for your baby’s first year.

The Graco Extend2Fit convertible has one of the highest rear-facing limits we’ve seen at 50 pounds. Since the average 4 year old weighs about 40 pounds, this seat could allow a vast number of children to ride rear-facing well past their 2nd birthday.

But what about their legs? Won’t they be cramped? This is the #1 concern with ERF. Many studies have shown that it’s actually more dangerous riding forward-facing, particularly because children’s heads, necks and spines are much more susceptible to injury than their legs. Plus, kids are a lot more flexible than adults, and a broken leg is less life-threatening than a neck or head injury.

However, the Graco Extend2Fit convertible car seat has taken the issue of cramped legs into account with this innovative model for growing toddlers. We’ve broken down the stats for you so you can decide if this car seat is worth the hype.
