She {hearts} The Graco TurboBooster with Safety Surround

My daughter, Allie Grace, turned a whopping THREE years old last month. Its amazing how quickly time flies by. Even though she’s a skinny little thing, she’s very tall and often looked uncomfortable in her 5-point harness carseat that she’s been in since she was 9 months old.  I came across the Graco  TurboBooster™ with Safety Surround™ just a week before our vacation and decided to give it a try. Some features that I liked about this new carseat, just from reading about its features, were the adjustable back height, it converts to a backless booster, the armrests and cup holders, the removable pads that were machine washable, and of course the new safety surround. While she’s only 30 lbs., which is the minimum weight required for this carseat, I knew it was time for her to go ahead and change seats. We are on the road all the time and she just seemed uncomfortable in her old seat.

We hadn’t had the seat for a week yet when we went to a birthday party and one of the items in the favor bags was a purple marker. Somehow the top came off the marker and it sat in the carseat on the ride home, soaking purple ink into our brand-new light grey carseat. The next day was followed by our weekly trip to the beach so I decided it would need washing again after that so I let the stain be while we were at the beach. As soon as I returned from vacation I did some minimal spot cleaning with Shout, threw it in the wash and it was good as new again!  There’s something to be said about a carseat that’s so easy to take the cover off and actually get stains out of!

Since we are on the road so often, I sometimes try and plan our long trips during Allie Grace’s naptimes. The Safety Surround also acts as a cushion for her to lay her head when she’s asleep. In her Daddy’s truck, that carseat doesn’t have the Surround and she can’t get comfortable while sleeping. The US currently doesn’t have a standard for side impact tesing but Graco decided on the European draft standard because they believed it is the most comprehensive. They tested their Safety Surround™ in Europe to ensure they have the best side impact protection.

The armrest and highback have grow-with-me features where you can adjust the height as your child grows. The seat will help safely transport your growing child from 30-100 lbs. in highback mode. Once they are 40 lbs. the back can be removed.
