After 3 years of sharing a carseat with my daughter (back and forth, in and out, heavy, bulky, what a pain), my granddaughter finally grew in size and weight to be able to have a booster seat. So, this Nana decided to purchase one for my car. It's a really cute design and fits perfectly in my vehicle, where it will have a permanent home until my granddaughter grows out of it. She feels like such a big girl being able to climb up into it and buckle herself in (with a little help from Nana). We took a long trip this past weekend and the pads along side her head were just perfect for napping. I recommend this booster seat for little girls that can handle a bit more freedom of movement (the shoulder/lap belt allows her a bit more freedom than an infant or toddler harness in a carseat).
