Like infants, toddlers are not yet well aware of their surroundings, and they still need to be guided and secured especially when they are riding transportation vehicles. That is the reason why car seats for toddlers are required by law, and if you have a child aged 1 to 3, then you should have one, too. One of the models that I definitely recommend is the Evenflo Big Kid LX Booster Car Seat, and this review will cover everything you need to know about it.
Car seats for toddlers are completely different from infant car seats. They are bigger and much more durable since they carry heavier and bigger kids. This booster seat is especially designed to withstand the restlessness and mischievousness of your growing child as well as his body and weight. It is made for children from 30 to 100 pounds heavy, and up to 57 inches tall. The seat is used facing forward, with a belt for easy securing and positioning the child.
This booster is made to last for a long time, especially since it take several years for your child to reach 57 inches of height. It has a very durable frame and washable cloth pads which allow you to keep it intact and always presentable. It’s also designed to meet and even exceed the federal law requirements and standards for car seat safety and use. With this booster seat, you can definitely make sure that your child is only in the safest hands.
This car seat is designed with optimal features for maximum comfort and security. The full body adjustment can be easily accessed through a one-hand pull handle which can adjust the height and seat depth without hassle. The height and depth of the seat can be adjusted in 6 different levels for a more comfortable position. The armrests can be pivoted so your child can easily sit and buckle up in the seat. The deep head is created to support a child when he is napping, or when he wants to relax during the drive.
There are seven colors of this car seat which you can choose from depending on what you or your child prefers. Curtwood is a combination of black and checkered gray with highlights of red. Emma is a combination of brown with floral highlights and pink lining. Flower Power is a combination of a floral body with a white background, green sides, and pink highlights. Lime Surprise is a combination of black, gray, and green linings, which is very closely similar to Mercury which has the exact same colors, except it has more black areas, particularly on the headrest. Sandbar is a mixture of brown and beige, and Sun Flier is a combination of gray, very light gray, and yellow linings. Either Mercury or Lime Surprise is very good to use for a long time because of the dark color which can last for several years. It shows little weathering and is resistant to stains and wear and tear.
There are more features to this model that make it a better choice for most parents. It can be converted from a full booster to a no-back booster by simply detaching the backrest, and installing it again when needed. There are also various detachable parts like drinking area, eating area, and activity area, so your child won’t feel bored during the ride. The design of this booster is also created to withstand twice the impact of crash than that of the federal crash test standard.
Whether your child is 1, 2, 3, or even 6 years old, the Evenflo Big Kid LX Booster Car Seat is a perfect addition to your family transportation vehicle and it can definitely give you more security and comfort features that many other car seats for toddlers can’t provide. I highly recommend this model to all of the parents out there who want to keep their children secure, safe, and comfortable during car rides and trips.
