My 99th percentile baby was horribly uncomfortable in his old car seat and squirmed in every other slim model we tried. I have three kids in car seats, so slim was a must. He LOVES this seat. He’s so comfortable, doesn’t complain when we put him in it, and loves that he’s now high enough to look out the window on car rides. We like it so much that I’m about to splurge on a second one for his twin.

I have 4 under 5 years of age and it’s been so wonderful being able to transition each child as they grow and hand down to the others! The flame retardant free fills me with confidence that I am in control of what touches my kiddos skin and won’t be uncomfortable.
Pros
  • Grows with child, and extended rear facing, fits 3 across in our SUV

Sturdy Car Seat, Great for Toddlers and Preschoolers
By Melissa

We have had this car seat for approximately a year and have always felt comfortable using it with our 5 year old. The car seat is on the heavy side, which makes it a bit challenging to switch it to a different car when we need to, but the install is very easy and it feels like it is securely in place once installed. The harness is easy to adjust and getting our child in and out of it is easy. The seat appears to be comfortable and the fabric is nice and durable. The seat does sit a bit high up, but that's great for a child to be able to see out the car windows and it is not so tall that it obstructs our view in any way.
Safe + Non-Toxic

We have loved our Clek Foonf for our toddler for almost three years, so we decided to purchase a second for our second baby on the way. The lack of flame retardants is a HUGE reason for selecting the Foonf in Mammoth. Second is the safety ratings that cannot be beat. Was considering this and the Nuna Rava and the safety features of the Clek won out by a landslide.
Pros
  • -No brominated flame retardants with the wool fabric
  • -Extremely safe
Cons
  • -Price - ouch it is pricey. Wish it was sub-$500. I kept waiting for the Mammoth to go on sale for the past 7 months, but no luck.

This seat is truly a tank. I feel confident knowing my baby is protected and secure. He loves the seat and being able to sit up and look out the windows. The seat takes up a lot of space rear facing, so do research to see if it’ll fit in your vehicle! I have a CX-5 and am 5’4” - it fits behind the seat for me but my 6’2” husband can no longer drive my car with the seat installed. We upgraded from the Liing and couldn’t be happier!

When the car seat came I had to make some changes and move the straps around. The middle one was so hard to move up another slot. I scraped all of my fingers and it took me like 20 minutes. But I do love the knowledge that my son is safe when we are on the road.
Pros
  • Safety

  • Hard to make adjustments as your child grows.

The BEST Carseat!
By Ashley

Verified Buyer
We absolutely love this car seat! It feels so safe. We use it all the time and it has held up great for the past 2 years. We are currently looking at getting a second one for our second kid. Our 3 year old still fits in it comfortably and still has plenty of time rear facing in this seat. One thing I never thought of when purchasing is it's height. It is a tall seat and that has been an added plus because our daughter can easily see out our car's windows, which makes for happier car trips. We love that it is wool and has no sprayed flame retardants on it. We would recommend this car seat to anyone. The only cons are that it is a bit spendy and it is quite heavy. We don't mind either of those things because we feel it is such a safe seat and we don't move it around from car to car.
Pros
  • Wool, comfy, tall, safe, well-made, sturdy, great company
Best Uses
  • Everyday use in one car!
Cons
  • Might be narrow for larger kids, expensive, and heavy.

We love our Foonf in mammoth wool. We have a 5-year-old forward facing in this one, 3-year-old rear facing in a newer Foonf mammoth, and 8-year-old in the Clek Oobr booster. The kids are all comfortable, and the seats fit perfectly three-across in our Odyssey. We love how sturdy and solid the seat is, the steel frame construction and the rigid latch. Our primary criteria was that it's flame retardant free! One thing that can be bothersome is that the pad on the seat buckle slips off easily. We've figured out how to manage it though, and overall we are very happy with the seat!
Pros
  • free of chemical flame retardants
  • sturdy, steel frame
  • rigid latch
  • natural fabric
Cons
  • buckle pad slips off easily
  • 5-year-old can't reach the lever to loosen straps herself (needs help unbuckling) -- this could be a pro for some families!

Pros
  • Color
  • Stain resistant
  • Odor resistant
  • Lots of safety features
Cons
  • It's a tank like I said.. and tanks are HEAVY
  • However, I leave my car seats in my car and don't have to move it around after it's installed.. so not really a con for me, but it could be for others.
  • It's expensive. But worth it. I was able to get my military discount on it so that helped a lot.

By Russell

I really really want to like this seat but it has been a major pain since I got it. It's a heavy beast which makes me think it will protect my son in the event of a crash, and the slim profile is nice for other passengers in the back seat, but I can't recommend this seat, especially for front-facing toddlers. This is already a pricey seat and does not come with a cup holder (I knew this when I bought it but still annoying). It does not recline that far in front facing so my son's head falls forward if he falls asleep on a long car ride, which is a deal breaker. Unlike most other seats that put their LATCH release on the actual buckle, the Foonf has them on the front (those red tabs in the product photo). You pull them out to release the LATCH, but if you pull "too hard" (their words, not mine) they can break...and then you can't remove your car seat without using a workaround involving an included troubleshooting tool where the LATCH buckles anyway. It's a ridiculous design flaw that is not covered by the warranty and broke after only owning for a few months. I'll likely bite the bullet and get something else.
Pros
  • - Slim design
  • - Seems solid, especially the unique rigid LATCH system (but...)
  • - I feel like my son would be safe in a crash
Cons
  • - Rigid LATCH release easily breaks forcing you to use workaround to disengage (not covered by warranty)
  • - Heavy so once it is in there, it's in there
  • - Not much padding which may be uncomfortable for some kids on long rides
  • - Forward facing doesn't recline much so my toddler's head often falls forward if he falls asleep
  • - cup holder is extra
  • - My son is only 3 1/2 and below average height for his age and already seems like he's close to the max height for this seat somehow

By June

Got this for our tall 8mo baby who's at the infant carseat height limit area. Seat is very spacious but slim so you can fit another one jnside Toyota Camry. This carseat also sits higher than other ones, which makes driving a fun activity to enjoy for our LO. However, one thing I noticed is that my LO's head falls forward, which makes me worried as it can turn jnto chocking hazard for smaller babies and can cause stress to his neck. Also, it's very hard to wash the seat cover. Manual says to just use it as-is but it went through all kinds of process (manufacturing, assembly, packaging, etc.) and since it's Covid pandemic still, I googled and looked all kinds of sources to remove, clean and reinstall the covers. Someone mentioned their manual being not too detailed; It is true and the paper manual is hard to understand. Youtube it using few different keywords to find the easiest video manual to understand how to install the seatcover back. I already did it once so I now know how it works, but it took me a good full day to reinstall it at first. Other than these, so far so good.
Pros
  • - Higher than other ones so allows LO to enjoy the view over the window
  • - Sturdy
Cons
  • - Poor manual
  • - Baby's head falls forward
  • - Seat cover nearly impossible to remove and clean (doable but very hard and requires compleye disassemble)

I had to replace both my kids car seats due to an accident. I did a ton of research on the most safe car seats and ultimately landed on this one due to its slim profile. My 3 year old is forward facing and 16mth son is rear facing so I experienced setting up both ways. I did thoroughly read all the instructions to get to know the product better. It did take some time to get both set up and secured but I can say that once installed, both feel incredibly secure and tight. The prior car seats, despite many attempts, never seemed to be quite as firmly in place as these are. My son is also seeming to enjoying riding up higher since there is the rear facing component that increased the height. He can actually look out the window now. Great product quality. I do recommend taking the time to read the instructions and get familiar with how it works.

A Tank of a Car Seats... But Tanks Ain't Lightweight
By Lauren
from Texas
on June 30, 2021
Verified Buyer
Let me start by saying this is my second Clek Foonf Car Seat so, of course, I really like the thing. It's clearly indestructible which feels pretty reassuring when you're strapping your unwilling little food-stained bundle of joy to it before taking off down a 75-mile-a-hour highway. They have great natural fiber fabric options. It never had a funky chemical smell and there is plenty of room in the seat without it being too large. The easy latch system also pretty handy. All that being said, it this thing is a tank. It's heavy and it's taller than most car seats. I was recently riding with a friend and we needed more room in the car. "I'll just pop out my car seat." What could she mean? My car seat weighs what feels like 50 pounds and there is never any "popping it out". Well, hers weighs a fraction of mine and my mind was blown at the difference. We are flying soon and I will definitely NOT be taking my foonf with me. It is ridiculous to me that they even have a travel case for it. In fact, I own two simply because I refuse to keep moving the seat from my car to my husbands and back again. No... Nope... Won't do it anymore. I hurt my shoulder one too many times (and I am not a dainty lady). Summary: If you want a tank, get it. If you want something portable, easy to move, or lightweight... maybe check elsewhere. I still give it 5 stars.
Pros
  • -Bombproof
  • -Great Company
  • -No Off-gassing Smell
  • -Easy latch system
  • -Roomy
Cons
  • -HEAVY

We consulted The Car Seat Lady, Pediatrician Dr. Alisa Baer. She recommended Albee Baby(which we already knew and love, and shopped from before), and the Clek Foonf for our baby, and another child who are rear facing. We chose the Ten Year Blue color in the C- Zero fabric, but I failed to notice that there is one with white on back and one with black on back, and ordered the white ones. They are very pretty car seats, and the fabric is soft and seems to wipe clean so far. The fabric reminds me of Crypton. The seats are comfortable for my children, although they do sit higher in the vehicle car seats, which was a surprise to us.One definite plus to this, my children can see out of the window a whole lot better! We drive a Honda Odyssey van. The seats are heavy and very different from any other we have installed, however my husband watched the recommended videos and we had our consult with The Car Seat Lady, which was a lifesaver and worth every penny! The seats have a steel frame and I feel like my children are very safe in them. We also ordered the Q Tether per The Car Seat Lady's instructions. This is an additional accessory ordered directly from the Clek website, for $19.99, that limits rotation of the seat for Rear facing, and reduces head and neck forces by up to 50%! It adds about 3 seconds to getting the child in and out of the seat, yet I feel like the peace of mind and extra safety feature, is absolutely worth it.The anti rebound bar is also a very nice feature that adds an extra level of safety. The seat is extremely secure and not going anywhere, and no extra noise is heard as others have mentioned. I would highly recommend this seat and the Clek brand!

I did a lot of research before buying a toddler car seat for my daughter and it seemed like the Clek Foonf was the best car seat out there for safety and looks so classic. We picked this car seats for a number of reasons 1) it was the safest on the market based on our research and talking to different retailers that sold car seats 2) you can fit three across in most cars because of it's slim width dimensions 3) it looks beautiful! Albeebaby was a great place to order from because of their reward system and points. After my purchase I was able to use my points on a few other items I needed for our daughter. We had such a good experience, we are now ordering the same car seat again for our second daughter.

We did a lot of research before buying our first convertible car seat. It was very important to us to have our daughter in something that had no chemicals and were so thankful to find the Foonf. On her first car ride she seemed to love the seat. It is spacious and the material is soft. We love that there is the anti rebound bar. The biggest challenge is , with any car seat, reading the manual of both the car and car seat to ensure proper installation. Clek has a very easy install process. We will buy another whenever we have another kid!

This seat is as sturdy and functional as it gets. We’ve had the following seats: Clek Foonf (this one) Britax Advocate Britax B-Safe35 Britax Boulevard Chico Next Zip Graco 4ever That is also the order I’d rate them in. I would never buy the bottom 3 ever again. And I’d be incredibly bitter to have to get anything other than a Foonf moving forward. The seat uses rigid latch (not available in 99% of seats on the market), which is a direct steel car seat frame to car latch system. There’s no seatbelt-like material on the latch system at all. It makes it incredibly secure. It also uses a seatbelt and rear latch along with the rigid latch. I’ve never had a seat that has you use all the installation methods at once like this one, and can honestly say that the seat does not wiggle or move from the installation point a single centimeter. It’s also very easy to install once you do it for the first time. Definitely follow Clek’s video instructions, as it is a little intimidating without it. The harness release button is also totally inaccessible to the kids and takes 2 trigger movements from me to even loosen the straps. I seriously can’t put into words how safe and secure this seat is.

By Emma

Bought this to be our regular car seat given its stellar safety reputation and the FR-free Mammoth wool (harder to find than you would think), and have a Britax in a second car. While the Foonf has held up well and feels very sturdy and safe, the installation is a complete nightmare- despite reading instructions and watching multiple you tube videos, it took ~2 hours to install it rear-facing, and then another 1.5 hours to turn it around when it was time. Every time you have to make any sort of adjustment, you basically have to take the entire thing apart, and it is not intuitive in the least. I am usually good at sorting through product manuals and figuring out assembly/installation, and have had no problem with the Britax, so was disappointed to find this so difficult to install and that it did not come up more in reviews.
Pros
  • Flame retardant free
  • Sturdy/safe
Cons
  • Installation and adjustments are SO complicated
  • Would not purchase again for this reason

I was choosing between the Clek Foonf and Nuna Rava. I decided on the Foonf because it is slightly more narrow. However, I am returning it because it is incredibly tall, meaning that your vehicle must have a lot of head room. This seat is easily 10 inches taller than the Rava when installed in a rear facing position in a fully upright recline. The height made it incredibly difficult to get my child in and out of it, and I didn't feel comfortable with how close his head was to the vehicle's ceiling. I spoke with Clek in a scheduled video installation call to confirm I had installed it correctly. I drive a Nissan Murano.
Pros
  • Video installation call offered by manufacturer.
Cons
  • Incredibly heavy seat, very difficult to install, just like all other Clek products.
Mediocre

I had read all about how safe the Clek's crumple zone technology is, so was always looking to buy this car seat. While the look and feel is great, there are a few issues with this car seat. 1) The crotch area is very limited, and my thin 4 year old son finds the buckle at the outer most area still tight. The crotch strap protector also falls off everytime my son gets out of the car, and often gets lost at the bottom of the car. I dont know why Clek didn't sew this one or put a button somehow onto it. 2) The car seat works in some cars better than others. In our luxury suv, leather seats, it just doesn't get to the right angle that there is gap between the car seat and car and it rattles a lot while driving. In our cheaper cloth covered chair, it forms better. Really depends on car I think. 3) It's a TANK, heavy. But maybe that's why it so safe. Just warning this is not a car seat you'd replace on and off.

I originally ordered this seat to fit three across in a GMC Terrain. I ordered two of the Foonf and this seat is amazing! It is comfortable and offers lots of leg room. It is extremely narrow, and a pretty easy install. It is quite heavy, but very sturdy and durable. I would definitely order again!

I bought this Clek Foonf when my child had outgrown his infant Clek Liing. While the seat itself was a bit on the challenging side to install (I miss the rigid LATCH of the Liing!) the customer service provided by Clek was phenomenal. They took their time walking me through the installation and put my mind at ease. This seat is roomy for my toddler and compact enough to fit in the car.

Safest Car Seat

We love our foonf! It is reassuring to know that our child is in the safest car seat on the market. We will be buying a second foofn for our second car as our child will be outgrowing her infant car soon. The instal was easy. We also bought the q-tether separately to make sure our child is as safe as can be, we also attached some toys on the tether to keep her occupied. It seems comfy and have taken a few long trips in thee foonf. We also bought the mat thingy to protect the rigid latch system from digging into the seat when in rear-facing mode.
Pros
  • Safety!
  • Easy to install
Cons
  • A little rattling sound occasionally

If you’re pondering, buy it! The quality of this car seat is beyond exceptional. I have owned and/or used multiple cheaper car seats from brands such as Graco, on both my children and my multiple nieces/nephews. But this one leaves them in the dust. It is slim, sleek, and comfortable. It does not place your child in an awkward slumped position, and the fabric is high quantity and durable. The two “cons,” if you can even call them that, are the weight and the installation process. It is quite heavier than other car seats and it takes a little longer to install. However, I am not taking stars away for those two qualities due to them contributing to the overall safety of the product. I highly recommend this product, along with the Clek Oobr for older children. I plan on purchasing the Clek Liing for my next LO.

This is the cleanest seat on the market, especially the Merino Wool covered one. The safety of this seat is the best I have found with the crush technology. I bought my second seat for my second child I trust/love this seat. Friend has same seat and her 5yo still fits rear facing comfortably. Looking forward to using this seat for years
Pros
  • Years of use from birth till well past 5yo rear facing
Cons
  • Not easily removable like an infant insert-but then again, great excuse to get a nice stroller

Love the Foonf. It is a heavy car seat, but installation is simple and I feel confident it is a safe car seat. I've purchased multiple Foonfs and wouldn't go with a different car seat. However, I am not happy with the Merino Wool fabric. The day after we installed, it already had pilling. It is already an expensive car seat so to pay even more for upgraded fabric and have it look bad immediately is frustrating. Stick with the C-Zero fabric.

If you are here questioning to purchase this seat then make that purchase! If you are comparing this to the nuna Rava I would pick clek. Even with my 18 month old at 3 feet tall, she has more leg room than the Rava and it’s easier to install. The Rava might go it 49” RF but if your child has a long torso and his or her seat height is making them taller in the seat or their head 1” from the top your child won’t make it to 49” RF. The clek is build like a tank , easy to clean, and instal. I own 4 of these seats now!
Pros
  • Extended RF
  • Better features than the Rava
  • More leg room than the Rava
  • Easy to clean and install
Cons
  • None

My two friends have Graco seats and have commented on how sturdy mine are. Theirs felt like cheap plastic. Exceptional saftey features.

Great super sturdy seat
By SD

I’m so glad to have this narrow option to fit my 3 boys across the backseat. The rigid latch makes it feel very secure and helps in situations where a rigid seat belt buckle could make the install more difficult. My only real gripe is that I’ll have to take it out of the car and rethread the harness when my son gets taller, but I suppose you really only have to do that a few times in the life of the car seat. Overall a nice seat and love the Albee sale price!!
Pros
  • Straps do not twist and are relatively easy to tighten. Narrow profile fits more easily next to other car seats. Sleek design looks good in your car.
Best Uses
  • Fitting 3 across, forward facing with rigid latch
Cons
  • Doesn?t have a no-rethread harness.
  • Heavy (but that?s also a good thing, its super solid)

so far I am really satisfied with my purchase first and foremost the shipping was great and I received my car seat sooner than I expected. The car seat was in great condition on arrival. It's attractive but very heavy and has many safety features which give me peace of mind. It took some time to install but it's been easy to get our daughter in and out of she looks great and is safe in her seat and I am very happy with our purchase thus far. I have to mention even though it's heavy it doesn't take a lot of room in the car so you can sit in the driver/passenger seat comfortably.

Probably Best Car Seat Made
By Cathy
from United States
on January 31, 2021
Verified Buyer
This thing is a tank. It is tall, so the kids can see better, which makes them happier. It is not a bucket seat, so it is better for their spine alignment and more comfortable. It is also one of the few car seats available without fire retardants. It is pretty easy to install. You can keep your child rear-facing longer because the height and weight limits are larger than most available car seats. It also has an anti-rebound bar for rear-facing, which makes it safer during accidents. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend it. I think it is probably the best car seat made. Also, shipping from Albee baby is fast! I ordered it, and it arrived about 24 hours later.

Such better quality and sturdier than our (also new/2020) Diono 3QXT. Clek fits better in a BMW X3 as well. Trying to figure out how to sell the Diono now so we can put the proceeds toward another Foonf!

We had the fllo before getting a Foonf and I love them both! We have been through a decent amount of car seats over the years, and the Clek seats are by far my favorite for convertible car seats. The liing came out after our last kiddo was born. The quality of these seats is amazing. I also love the “L” shape design of them. The low profile around the bottom of the seat allow kids tons of leg room for extended rear facing! My daughter is 3.5 in the 83% for height and still has 2 inches before she will out grow the seats rear facing. The Foonf is also one of the only seats that offers rigid latch and seat belt install for forward facing. The Foonf is a beast so if you plan fly a lot I would consider the fllo or plan to get a seat for traveling.
Pros
  • Safety
  • Quality
  • 50lbs extended rear facing
  • Lots of leg room extended rear facing
  • Easy install
  • Rigid latch and seat belt install forward facing
  • Anti rebound bar
  • Rear facing teathering
  • L shape design
Cons
  • Heavy

I have 2 kids 2.5 years apart. Most kids outgrow car seats so they can be passed down to the next child. I did not have this option since the weight and height limits are so high on the foonf. My only solution was to repurchase this seat as there is no other seat on the market that I feel comes close in quality and safety features as this seat does. My oldest is now 7. He is still in his foonf. I am looking to purchase the Oobr now, not because he’s out grown it, and not even because he asked for a booster. It’s only because all of his friends are in boosters and I know the Oobr will give the same level of safety. He is perfectly comfortable to stay In his foonf.

Great Car Seat, Install is a Little Annoying
By KC
from NJ
on December 21, 2020
Verified Buyer
Install is a bit finicky. Make sure to read all the instructions, this isn't the type of car seat you can just wing (well none of them are) since there are small little buttons and such you have to click or loop through. Clek has one of the thinnest car seats width wise which is great, but it takes up a bit of room front to back. Thankfully we are average sized people so it doesn't affect the anyone up front, but for a couple on the tall side, it may affect how far back your driver or passenger seats will be. The seat is also quite tall, so a center install could block your rear window view. Overall, solid seat, it is built like an absolute tank and keeps my LO cooler and is a bit more spacious than our Nuna Rava, I only wish the install was as easy as the Rava.
Pros
  • - Cooling fabric
  • - Mostly stain resistant
  • - Smooth belt pull
  • - Quality materials and build
  • - Fun colors/fabric
  • - Thin width-wise
Best Uses
  • Best for large SUVs and mini vans or anything with a captain seat.
Cons
  • - Tricky install
  • - Wide front to back
  • - Short buckle strap

Overall, I’m happy with my purchase. Mainly, I do feel the Clek Foonf is as safe as they say and that peace of mind is incredible valuable. It’s only been in use about two weeks, so as I adjust to it my thoughts may change, but my only complaints as of now are how heavy it is (a nonissue once installed) and how awkward it is to adjust the straps. Maybe it’s just my car (2018 CRV) but I feel like I have to squeeze myself in the tiny bit of headspace above the seat to get the baby in and the steps adjusted correctly. But if you’re looking for a well-made, incredibly safe car seat I’d still recommend it. It looks and feels much more high quality than other options and I trust it to do its job well.
Pros
  • Quality materials
  • Comfortable for child
  • Narrow fit
Cons
  • A bit clunky to install
  • Stiff buckles and straps (maybe just need breaking in)

Our priority when purchasing car seats for our littles is safety and comfort! This weight of this seat is heavy, but clearly made of something that seems almost indestructible; exactly what we want. My 3.5 year old is quite tall for his age (43” tall) and doesn’t like anything that is too restrictive around his shoulders. He loves this seat and really loves the additional height it gives him as well. It sits higher than other car seats. SUPER EASY to install. It was literally a couple of clicks and it was in. We also own NUNA Ravas which we love for their ease of install and quality. His nuna is going to our youngest and we chose this for him bc it also fits in the third row of our Audi Q7, it’s amazing!
Pros
  • Heavy Duty, Sits Tall, Quality, Ease of Installation, Fits Third Row of mid-size SUV
Cons
  • Heavy! (but who cares if it?s a permanent seat in your car)

Initially got the Nuna Rava because the Foonf was backordered. Now that I have my Clek, I love it even more. It has so much leg room due to the added safety of the anti-rebound bar, the straps are nice and long and don't twist, so it's very easy to get baby into the chair. And it's narrow!
Pros
  • - Plenty of leg space when rear-facing
  • - Extended rear-facing
  • - Extremely safe (only company to share safety ratings), anti rebound bar, side impact, etc
  • - Straps are nice and long, so easy to use on baby, and the straps don't twist!
  • - steel reinforced (maxi cosi is not)
  • - narrow in width (only 17 inches across)
Cons
  • - Heavy (so I won't be moving it around)
  • - Have to uninstall to adjust harness

So far I am very pleased, it is basic without cups and frills but my biggest want was ease to put the baby in and out and this seat delivers. I’m 5’8

We purchased Clek 2019 / 2020 Foonf in pink and black base in July 2020 as a back order (bc it was on sale) which was supposed to arrive end of August. I called on September 4th to ask if there are any updates, but our order got pushed to mid October. I asked if they can do anything for us, they offered pink and white base instead (which was never on sale ). Five days later our car seat was delivered to our door for no extra charge. Love it! Our three year old boy has same carseat in all black and we are more than happy with it. Worth every penny. Thank you!

I first bough the Clek Foonf 2017 for my first daughter when she turned one year old. I bought it because it’s one of the narrowest and safest on the market. Now my second daughter is 10 months old and I’m buying another one for her. I have a Toyota RAV4 and need some extra sitting so I think that This car seat is ideal for small SUV.

Quality Tank oh I mean Car Seat
By MCS

on May 23, 2020

My child is much more content in his new Clek with the great wool fabric that helps keep him cool compared to his infant seat. This seat is very tall, in our X5 we can have the front seats positioned for a very tall driver just fine, however a tall driver in a sedan might have problems (we haven't moved it to our Passat yet, but it will be tight). This truly is a tank, you can see the steel running through it and it is extremely heavy, once it is in the car it really isn't going to be moved from car to car, we are going to have to purchase a second one. Read the installation instructions, from our research this one appeared to be more difficult than other options out there, but once you have it figured out it's not bad. I did need my husband to help me get it tight though as we prefer to use the belt versus the latches as it has always given us a more secure seat. Overall pleased with the safety, materials and styling.

This is much roomier than I had thought and my son loves it! We do need to wait to use it a little longer as his head dangles when he falls asleep. He is just about to turn one and on the small side so we can still safely use our infant car seat for a bit longer until he is better able to fit this.

Best option for warm/humid climates. Fabric is easy to wipe and seems cool very fast. Very straight forward installation and design. The extra lean is truly appreciated with younger babies who just transitioned from infant seat carrier. Really appreciate having the extended rear-facing capacity.

This is supposed to be the safest seat on the market and it certainly feels that way. We used a Britax Advocate with our first child and I thought that was the best of the best. This seat certainly is a huge upgrade from a Britax! Not only in safety but in comfort and material quality. We chose this seat over the Nuna Rava because of the anti-rebound bar.
Pros
  • Safety features. Heavy steel frame. Rebound bar.
Cons
  • It would definitely be difficult to travel with this seat or move from car to car. It?s just fine if it stays put in one car. We?ll be using a car seat bag with wheels when traveling with this seat.

Safe, solid & narrow

I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. It was time to transfer the youngest to a convertible car seat. I knew I wanted 2 narrow seats to fit in my 2018 qx60 behind the driver and in the middle, so that there was an easy access to the third row seats and a spare seat in the 2nd row for when our relatives are in town. There are not a lot of options for narrow seats, so I decided to go with foonf, because it’s the best one. I do not plan to move it, so the weight wasn’t a concern. I’m 5’5” and even though it sits higher than our previous Chicco nextfit zip, it’s still not cumbersome to load and unload the child. Fabric - it feels so soft, and even though we live in Florida, my sons seems to be comfortable, and doesn’t get hot.
Pros
  • Safe
  • No flame retardants
  • Comfortable
  • Narrow
  • Easy install
  • Easy to strap the child in or out

We have had this seat for a year and half for my 2.5-now-almost 4 year-old. It takes a little oomph to get installed, but once installed you will be happy. It feels rock solid in terms of safety for our son. He says it is comfortable, and it sits up high where he can truly see out of our car without any trouble. My one recommendation to Clek would be to find an easier-to-access mechanism for parents to adjust the tension in the straps. It is hard to reach as deep as you need to find the lever each time. Though to be clear, that is a minor hassle for the safety and comfort of this car seat.

By Maria

Putting the car seat together and setting it up took a lot of reviewing the instructions, but once I got it and installed it in my car, it was fine. Adjusting the straps may be a little difficult when the car seat it already installed rear facing, as the seat has to be removed and the latch is pressed against the backrest of the seat of the car. I suggest adjusting it to your baby before you install it in your car. The moment I placed my son in it, he sort of melted. He immediately looked calm and comfy. Not long into the ride, he fell asleep. The merino wool is very soft so I guess it’s really cozy. It is quite large though. We have a Honda Pilot and it is right against the back of the passenger seat, with enough leg room for the passenger. It’s also tall, so I had to move the mirror I use to see my son to the middle headrest. These are all small things but if you want it in a smaller vehicle, it may be really tight. It looks like my son is happy in it, so I’m happy. Plus, it’s very sturdy and safe. Really feels like it’s built like a tank.

Good seat for extended rear-facing
By Jeremy

Verified Buyer
We are big advocates of extended rear-facing, so we loved the Foonf. With it, we were able to rear-face our son until he was almost 5. At that point, he was 43" tall and had to switch to forward-facing even though he still had additional height in the shell. Now, other seats can rear-face taller children, so I would consider them as well.
Pros
  • Rigid LATCH install is easy for forward-facing, anti-rebound bar
Cons
  • Lower latch limits are low due to heavy weight of seat, 43" rear-facing height is not the heighest on the market now

We’ve had Britax car seats - marathon and advocate. Really liked both but wanted a safer option that can rear face until 50lbs.

My girls also sit about 5-6 inches higher in the car than with the other car seats so they can see so well out the window, they don’t even seem to mind.

After being strictly a Chicco baby seat mom I was hesitant to go with this brand that was unknown to me but I am sooooo glad I did. These seats are the real deal. They are very heavy duty, well made. I seriously have no safety reservations about my children riding in these whatsoever bc I can tell that they are extremely strong carseats. I love that my baby sits up higher rear facing bc she used to scream constantly; now that she has been in the foonf she actually enjoys carrides as she can see out the window. Go figure. My oooonly thing with the seats is that due to the snugness of the belt setup, it is very difficult to clip in a baby with cloth diapers. But even so, had I known about that beforehand I still would have purchased bc its a small thing compared to having a safe seat.

This is a good quality car seat with no added flame retardants. However, it's quite difficult to install so it makes switching it to a different car quite difficult. It's also quite heavy and the seat cover can't be washed in a washer.

  • Good quality
Cons
  • Heavy
  • Difficult to install

This car seat was about 2X as expensive as our first convertible car seat. However, our 2.5 year old son complained that his butt hurt in the other so we took a chance on this one. So glad we did! He sits up so much higher in the car and can see out the windows so much better. He loves it! It also does not require as much recline which makes him more comfortable. Can’t beat Albee’s rewards and free shipping!

We have LOVED this seat and our other Foonfs. They are super heavy but this translates to really solid in the car when installed correctly. The fabric is amazing and so easy to clean. I also love the overall look of this seat - it's not bulky and bumpy looking. Both of my kids use Foonfs and love them. So, although it doesn't look plush and comfy, they are comfortable and love their seats! The Shadow color is great out of the box but after 2+ years of use, it has faded in the sun on the seat in the car without (factory-installed) window tinting. This doesn't change our overall love of the seat though.

Clek Foonf-Mammoth, Non Toxic, Safe
By Samantha
from NC
on June 27, 2019
Verified Buyer
We previously had a convertible Graco seat but after researching flame retardants and safety features we decided to go with the Clek Foonf in Mammoth Wool and couldn’t be happier! It is compact so fits in the center seat of most cars and can accommodate two next to each other or 3 across all with no flame retardants if you pick the wool option. The only negatives are that it is heavy and the seat isn’t easy to clean but for the safety features and non toxic benefits, it is worth it.

We could tell that this seat is built very well, and I'm sure it's the safest seat on the market. But, they seemed to skimp in some of the other details, in favor of making a cool/minimalist looking seat... the padding on the seat is almost non-existent, and the padding on the harness/main buckle felt a bit cheap. Also, no way to hold the harness back while we're putting our kid in, and if we want to use this for an infant in the future, we have to pay another $70 for the insert, and $20 for each cup holder. That's $110 more than the seat we ended up exchanging this for, the Nuna Rava, which includes all of the accessories, and seems to be a lot more comfortable for our kid.

Cleo is simply the best
By Alina

I did my fair share of research when it came to picking out a convertible seat for my fast-growing daughter who was barely fitting in her infant car seat. Clek is simply the best - a tank of a car seat that manages to look modern, sleek and stylish at the same time. I hate gaudy things, so the look of the seat mattered almost as much as the safety rating. I feel like if you're looking at Clek, you already know what it's about. We've had it for almost a month so far and I'm very happy. It is almost magically spacious for my baby without taking too much room in the back. She loves being higher than before and being able to look out the window. Her head does drop forward a little when she's asleep, but I think that's the same with any car seat. It is expensive and heavy, but worth it if you want the best and don't plan to frequently move it from car to car. The manual was very helpful when we were installing it (rear-facing with seat-belts for us at this point.)
Best Convertible Car Seat on the Market
By Katie

This car seat, like in its description, is the mother of all car seats. The safety factor with the crumple technology to absorb impact vs the baby is the main decision factor for me buying this seat. It also allows for rear facing for up to 50lbs to keep your child in the safest position for as long as possible. My baby loves that he sits up high in the seat and can look out. We got the mammoth wool fabric to help keep him cool especially since we live in Texas and it stays so hot for so long here. You definitely have to read the directions on how to install because it's more complex than just click it in. It is very heavy but I would expect it to be with a seat with steel structure. Another reason we chose this seat was because it is slim and only takes up one seat and not impinging on a second in the backseat making the seat beside it unusable. You able to use All your seats in the backseat. Its much more comfortable ride for my baby than his infant seat and does not scream on car rides anymore. It is worth the cost for safety factor alone and the fact that you will be able to use it for years as your baby grows.
Pros
  • Safety
  • Slim
  • Comfortable
  • Temperature cool fabric

When I was searching for where to buy a Clek Foonf from, I stumbled upon Albee Baby. The price was FAR better than any other retailer I found and I thought it was too good to be true. Not only did I do Google searches on Albee Baby as a company to make sure they were legitimate and that I would be getting a brand new, as-advertised carseat, but I also searched in my Car Seat Facebook group to see what their opinions were. Well, Albee Baby isn't too good to be true! They're a reputable company that not only offers great prices and products but also provide GREAT information about the products they sell. Now, onto the Foonf! We have a Clek Fllo and like it, although it was hard to get a good install in our minivan seat because of how the base is shaped. We even got a mat-thingy (directly from Clek) and while it helped, it still wasn't easy to get a great install. So, while I liked the Clek brand, I wasn't totally in love with the Fllo for our vehicle. So when we were ready to purchase a second carseat, I decided to try the Foonf since I noticed the base was shaped a bit differently. I AM SO GLAD I DID! It fit FANTASTICALLY in our van, is easy to get a great, secure, and correct install, and my baby loves it and is so comfortable in it! I highly recommend not only purchasing a Foonf, but definitely recommend buying it from Albee Baby!

Beautiful Car Seat
By H S.

We purchased the Clek Foonf in Flamingo. This is a beautiful car seat that is sturdy and durable. We purchased the Mammoth fabric for one car seat, and although the Flamingo fabric isn't as pure, it is still free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase, and happy that this car seat can accommodate infant to 65 pounds. Here's a summary from Clek of fabric differences: Most Clek seats are made with Crypton Super Fabric, which are GREENGUARD Select Certified and provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odour-causing bacteria; and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. Here are the differences between our available fabric options: The Noire models are made with a microsuede type Crypton Fabric, a synthetic fabric that is designed to resemble suede leather. It has a short pile (which is flatter than fleece) and a soft suede-like feel. The solid colour models, such as Shadow and Flamingo, are made with a microfibre type Crypton Fabric. This is a fabric with a tightly looped top, similar to a towel, and features a terrycloth-like texture. The grey editions, such as Thunder, Cloud, and Slate, are made with premium Crypton Fabric, which has a smoother texture, like a tailored suit fabric, and a more detailed heathered appearance. The wool model, Mammoth, is a charcoal grey fabric made of 100% Australian Merino wool. It is made from ethically sourced, 100% non-mulesed wool that is naturally hypoallergenic, breathable, odour resistant, and temperature regulating. Mammoth is the ONLY fabric cover option that contains no added flame retardants. Mammoth is available on Foonf, Fllo, Oobr, and Infant-thingy.
Pros
  • Free of several flame retardant chemicals
  • Sturdy
  • Beautiful color
  • Easy to clean
Cons
  • Short buckle length (difficult to buckle child)
  • Flamingo and other crypton fabric options aren't as toxin-free as Mammoth wool option

I am so excited that there is a wool option for toddlers that just happens to be the best new innovative technology, narrow profile comfortable and practical car seat available. Thank you foonf!

We have purchased two of these seats, both in the merino wool option. Fabric is very soft, and I appreciate the cooling feature, in the Florida heat. This car seat is very heavy and very sturdy. You will not be able to transfer this seat from vehicle to vehicle tho - too heavy. The straps are quite easy to tighten and loosen. My LO has always hated car travel, but in this seat, he sits to high up that he can look out the windows, and he now enjoys looking for trucks and has fun. The seat is pricey but worth it. Clek customer service is also amazing and a pleasure to deal with.

When I unboxed our foonf, I was really blown away by the quality of the seat. It looks like a miniature version of an actual car seat. It is sleek and trim, and despite being very heavy, I'd never describe it as bulky. I got the mammoth wool and it is really, really nice - super soft. I love merino wool, but wasn't sure about it holding up to wear and tear over the years as a seat. After reading way too much about merino, I decided to give it a go because it's supposed to be incredibly durable and hard-wearing. I installed this seat mostly by myself and highly recommend purchasing the mat-thingy to go with it because this thing puts a lot of pressure on your car's seat. Everything about the installation was easy for me to accomplish solo except getting the seat tight enough against our car's seat. Not a big deal, I had my husband push down on it while I tightened the LATCH straps, and that did the trick. I am a big fan of the anti-rebound bar. It really keeps the seat from wiggling and makes it feel like an extension of your car. Comfort-wise I expected a little more cushion to the seat, but I think it'll be fine for a little bum. My daughter absolutely hated her infant car seat. More often than not, she was completely inconsolable on car rides. She slept for nearly two hours on her first outing in the foonf. She rarely takes naps that long at home. Lucky I had my awesome mom with me to sit in the car with her while I ran my errands!As other reviewers have stated - this is not a seat you'll want to move from car to car. It's built like a tank and is almost as heavy.Only time will tell if my daughter will be content in the foonf, but I'm sold. If she still hates riding in the car, at least I'll know she's screaming in the safest car seat on the market!
Pros
  • Built like tank, love the merino wool, super safe and secure, anti-rebound bar, easy enough to install, straightforward instructions
You Will Not Regret Buying This Car Seat

This is my second Clek car seat. I bought the Fllo model about two years ago for my first daughter in Thunder (beautiful gray color) and loved it. This time around I decided to get the Foonf. My youngest will be taking over her sisters old Clek for now because my 3 yr old really wanted the pink seat. I was worried the bright pink was going to be too over whelming but it's not. It's a very pretty color and my 3 yr old loves it. I plan on ordering a second pink for the baby so when she gets a little older she won't be jealous of her sister's seat. Then the older Clek will move to dad's car. I love both the Fllo and the Foonf, you will not be disappointed with either choice. I chose Clek because it's one of the few brands that make seats with non toxic flame retardants, this was a #1 priority for me. The next consideration was ease of use. I tested out the other two Brands that were rated non toxic (Maxi Cosi & Britax) both we're very hard to tighten the harness. Clek tightens and loosens so easily. I purchased both car seats through Albee Baby and they have been a wonderful company to do business with. I will definitely be buy from them again.
Pros
  • Non toxic flame retardants
  • very sturdy
  • beautiful color choices
  • narrow base yet very roomy & comfortable seat
  • easy to put kids in and take out
  • rates for up to 50lbs rear facing
  • Top safety ratings
Cons
  • Very heavy- I don?t move my seat back and forth from vehicles so not an issue for me.
  • Price - all the safety features makes this well worth it to me.
  • Fabric cover is not removable to wash- it does wipe down very well with a damp cloth though and I?ve never not been able to get a stain out.
I love the new material on this Clek feels soft and nice

I adore this seat. It just works. It's sturdy and safe and sleek, and it never complicates my life. The fabric cleans easily with the Clek cleaning kit, and I love not having to take the seat apart to wash a cover. My 29 pound 2 year-old rear faces comfortably. He loves that he can see out the windows and the rear glass. I know this because he tells me every. single. thing. that he sees. I also love that Clek has a crash-tested seat protector. The weight of the seat was leaving impressions in my car's leather upholstery, but I wouldn't risk safety for something so frivolous. We ordered the Clek seat protector, and it's doing a great job protecting the leather without interfering with a very secure installation (that sucker does not budge).

You may not know this but this car seat is even green guard certified (the only car seat that is)It sits higher up and my toddler can see so much more out of the car she loves it. The material is soft and comfy. The kick bar is great. It also is more narrow and so much less bulky than other convertible car seats. Its expensive but definitely worth it!

I know this car seat is very expensive... but we decided to go without in other areas (for instance, we don't have the most amazing strollers because we are deciding to prioritize spending on car seats). We love this car seat and it is actually the second time I am purchasing this make and model. I have one for each of my children in my car (which is the car they are in most often). We do have Britax models in my partner's car and all grandparent cars... but I prefer the Clek Foonf to all other car seat options because of the safety aspects of this seat, the height of this seat (the kids love to see outside). The extended rear-facing feature is also a must for me as we drive a great deal and I really want to be as safe as possible. FYI- We have both Clek seats in Shadow as the fabric does receive a great deal of wear and tear. Since it is not removable, it is less easy to keep spotless. I highly recommend a darker color unless you are in the position to purchase a new seat when it looks less cute due to wear and tear or if you won't be bothered by this issue. Also, there are two different fabric feels and I prefer the look and feel of this fabric type. It is so soft and luxurious.
Pros
  • extended rear-facing
  • fabrics used
  • seat height
  • slim design
  • environmental impact
  • the beauty of the design
Cons
  • price

Before purchasing a carseat for our large 10 month old baby we researched for 2 months. This car seat far outshined any other that we looked at on the market. From the fabric to the design we were impressed. Once we got the carseat (delivered) we were in awe of how sturdy and sound this seat was. I'll admit though it is heavy so if that is a problem going with the Fllo would be in one's best interest. The color is awesome, the construction is fantastic and our son loves his new seat. I have already recommended this seat to a couple of friends with small ones and will continue to do so. We love this seat.

I originally purchased a Britax convertible car seat in my Ford Explorer. I was all set to go until I looked up how to install it with inflatable seat belts and realized that most car seats aren't compatible. I researched all of the options which led me to Clek and the Foonf and am glad I made the switch, even if I didn't have inflatable seat belts. This is simply the safest, most well made car seat in the market. I originally wanted to go with the cool Tokidoki version but my wife wouldn't go for it but all of the other options look good too. Make sure you look into the differences in installation if you have inflatable car seats.
Pros
  • Compatible with inflatable seat belts
  • Form factor
  • Made in Canada
  • Published safety data
  • Higher rear-facing weight limits
  • Reclinable
  • Optional cupholders
  • Stain resistant material
Best Uses
  • If it's only going to stay in a one car and never move
Cons
  • Heavy - will have to switch from LATCH installation sooner due to weight
  • Difficult to transfer between vehicles
  • Cupholders not included and expensive to purchase
  • Fabric not removable
  • Installation slightly more difficult and extra steps needed to change strap heights

This carseat is a bit of a pain to install the rebound bar you have to place pins in to attach rebound bar and I lost one inside of the car seat base, thankfully my husband was able to get it out and attach the rebound bar. It is a very beautiful car seat it is heavy but very sturdy. It fits better ten my Chicco infant carseat with base I had in my car. I have 3 kids and drive a Cadillac Deville and I fit this with a Clek Olli on one side and my oldest son has plenty of room on the other side. I feel like the middle crotch cover is a bit big on the smallest setting but all in all I love the car seat and so does my baby girl.

We purchased this car seat 3 years ago by the recommendation from "The Car Seat Lady". We met her in person and she recommended it due to it being super safe and fitting in our car. She even showed us and helped us install it. Our 3 year old has been using it for about 2 years now and it has held up very well. She's still rear facing and seems comfortable in that position even though her legs are a little long. The "shadow" color is great because it hides all the spills and accidents that have happened. It's also easy to clean. If you want a heavy duty, safe car seat, then I would definitely recommend the Clek Foonf.

The Clek Foonf is by far my favorite carseat. Its heavy, has a retractable rigid latch system, is super easy to install, is super slim so it fits 3 side by side in my car but it doesnt compromise the amount of room the kids have in their own seats. Down side about this particular 1 is that the seat fabric isnt as soft as the other 1s I have for my other children. Also the bottom harness latch doesnt allow much room for thicker legs or fuller bottoms. The cover also just slides off so you have to adjust it every single time your child gets in the car. I also wish it had the old feature of the magnetic sides to make it easier for kids not to get burned by hot metal when they are trying to get into their seat. Living in a very jot tropical state makes that kind of a necessary luxury especially when the car heats up to over 130 degress on a summer day.
Pros
  • Slim fit seat without childs comfort being compromised
  • Rigid latch
  • Easy install
  • Heavy
Best Uses
  • Families fitting multiple carseats side by side in vehicles
Cons
  • Seat covers arent as soft
  • Not magnetic belt catch like the older 1s
  • Too heavy to move from car to car

We just turned my daughter forward facing because we moved her into the 3rd row of my SUV and I wasn't able to see her as easily, but she still had plenty of room to grow! Love the anti-rebound bar it has as well. This seat is a little heavy in my opinion, but it is easy to install and very easy to use. The fabric on this seat also is very easy to keep clean.

This car seat is incredibly tough. We purchased this as a replacement of our Orbit Baby convertible following a car accident. The Foonf is far better than our previous seat. The fabric is very easy to clean and the width of the seat works very well for my rather thin son. Only drawback is it is so upright that when my son falls asleep his head hangs down significantly on his chest. Aside form that, its heavy and a little tricky to install but once you get it in its pretty great!
Pros
  • Steel
Cons
  • Heavy
  • Tricky to remove and install.

We are extremely pleased with this seat. Very sturdy, easy to install, and matches perfectly with our sedans interior. The elevated wedge allows our baby to see out the window which she enjoys. She is comfortable and well protected. The anti rebound bar is another nice feature that really locks the seat in place. We have seven children and have tried many car seat brands over the years. We must say Clek has risen to the top of our list. We also use their boosters now. Definitely recommend this seat. It is worth every penny.

At first, it was not love. You have to watch a bunch of youtube videos to ensure it's installed correctly and the shoulder pads are bulky...but we were just in a collision and my rear facing daughter didn't even notice! She didn't cry and no bruising, which I figured she would from the crash but none whatsoever (even with no pads) Such a safe seat. And my daughter loves that she can look out the window which I don't know other seats that this is even possible. So glad we purchased and will be replacing with the same seat again.

We have this seat for a month now and our 1 year old seem to enjoy her ride in her new seat. Installation was very time consuming. One should be very patient. We placed it rear facing on the middle seat of Lexus RX350 as it was most convenient location for a driver and a passenger. Otherwise, we had to move front seats to far forward. Overall, we like it so far. Grey color (thunder) is nice and it looks good in a light grey leather interior.

A little pricey but, even our UPS driver said "you get what you pay for" when he delievered it. Apparently he had one too. I'm not 100% sold on the fabric pattern. I thought it was solid dark grey. But our little guys is safe and comfortable, enjoying sitting higher up then when in the infant seat.
The best car seat
By Gabrielle

I have the 2016 that I've used for the last 14 months for my 2 yr 8 month old and liked it so much I just bought the matching 2017 for my 1 year old. It is very heavy so not the seat to be moving in and out of the car. I recently moved and checked it on my airline and it came back to me unscathed. I have a Hummer and it fits well in it, even rear facing... but it does lean back pretty far in rear facing so I'm not sure how well it'd fit in a car without a roomy back seat. Forward facing is a different story. Right now I temporarily have it in a Honda CRV and it fits well. I don't think there's a vehicle it wouldn't fit in forward facing as it's not very wide. The child sits very high, nearly level with me and I'm above average height. So if it's installed in the center you won't be able to see out of the rear view mirror or window. My daughter loves it and now that she's forward facing I can even recline it while it's installed by a latch on the front which comes in handy when she falls asleep and I'm at a light because I can recline it from the drivers seat. The chest clip does not press into the chest in a restrictive way yet it's still secure... I love this because she doesn't seem claustrophobic in this seat. The upholstery is not removable which was the only downside for me before I actually ordered it but even though we've had accidents nothing seems to stick to this fabric. As a matter of fact I've only wiped it once and it came clean... everything else just disappears. Installation is extensive for rear facing, took me an hour and a half because there's a base and rebound bar that has to be attached and of course the latch system. It's a complicated seat at first so I read the directions thoroughly. But obviously it was worth it and I think anyone spending this amount of money on a car seat is doing it for the unparamounted safety it provides so a lengthy installation is not a con. Forward facing is much much easier and quicker to install with the ridged latch that just clicks in. There were a couple unclear parts of the directions, especially regarding leveling the seat to be horizontal to the ground as well as retracting the ridged latch system which is different than the rear facing latch belt. My first seat came with the ridged latch sticking out and I installed it rear facing that way because there was nothing stating that it retracts into a storage compartment in the seat! I figured it was supposed to be that way because it's kind of a futuristic looking seat haha. My husband randomly figured it out one day while I was switching it to forward facing because we were trying to pull it out and it wasn't pulling out.... well it was already out and not having ever seen ridged latch nor used it we had no clue and we're yanking and yanking when he finally pushed in and then it all became clear haha ... it was pretty frustrating and the directions just weren't clear and they should have been in the section for rear facing as well as forward facing. But nonetheless, it caused permanent indentations in the leather seat because that ridged latch was out and digging into the edge of the seat in rear facing for several months. All in all it's a fantastic seat. It's beautiful, safe, sturdy, comfortable and I intend on using this seat for all my children to come =-)

My LO loves this car seat - it is trim so you can fit multiple across a back row but the seat is incredibly roomy. Since it does not have a large head rest, my LO is able to easily look out the window even when facing rear. Installation was harder than expected but once it was installed, it has been easy to use. With the base, the seat does sit a little higher so it is sometimes a tight squeeze getting LO in and out of the car.

We purchased a 2016 model as the second car seat for our second vehicle, while our primary vehicle has the 2017 model. Comparatively, the 2016 and 2017 are exactly the same, although we noticed the 2016 may have slightly different design features (e.g., crotch pad is shaped differently, some parts are made of different materials, etc.). Installation was pretty easy, although not recommended to take in and out of the car frequently due to bulkiness. Our son loves this car seat as he sits comfortably in it, and is elevated so that he can sit out the window (most other car seats do not provide this kind of elevation). As with most car seats, the crotch pad tends to come off a bit, so you just have to be careful when putting babies into and out of the seat. We love the seamless design and look of the car seat, and so far our son loves it! Our only con is that it does push the front seat up a bit when the seat is installed to be rear-facing. Additionally, our son's head tends to tilt way forward when he is napping in the car seat, since he is unable to fully recline when sleeping.
Pros
  • Easy to install, elevated, narrow

The main reason for us to choose Foonf is it's slim profile. We wanted to be able to leave more space for passages so looked into really slim car seats and came across Foonf. After researching, we realized how safe this car seat is rated. Our two year old baby boy loves sitting in it vs his Recaro and Britax car seats in our other cars. I just purchased a second one for our second baby on the way. Definitely recommend this car seat for your kids too. It also is very sleek. We paid $20 more on top of the regular price to have the upgraded fabric. My hubby says it looks a lot nicer and I have to agree.

This car seat is one of very few made in North America. No flimsy plastic substructure here.... the frame is solid steel and not exactly light. It took a little time to assemble. This would not be an ideal "travel" car seat due to its heft - best kept installed in your vehicle vs hauled on an airplane or transferred between cars. It was pretty simple to install in the car. Our little guy enjoys being positioned high enough to see out the windows. I enjoy knowing I can extended rear face (50 lbs max). The fabric should be cool on our toddler's skin, and is apparently easy to clean. That is to be determined :) Overall a great seat, reasonably priced, and. July to protect and last.

It took me about 40 seconds to do it. this is honestly my favorite feature*The head rest requires a special tool (comes with carseat) to move it up and down which i love because it wont move unless i want it to.*the crotch buckle is easily adjusted*pretty comfy*using the latch system for rear facing installation is quick and simple (i wouldn't say easy though b/c you have to press down on the seat to get it really tight but thats no different than all the other carseats with the same latch system)*the cover is liquid resistant (it really is. my toddler already spilled milk and it easily wiped off. and the crumbs were easily swiped away as well)*latch buckles can be stored within the carseat so no flappy straps hanging everywhere*it has a metal safe cell technology so it absorbs the impact during a collision!!! :)CONS: *very heavy (a little bit heavier than the Britax Clicktight Advocate)*you have to remove the butt pad and crotch pad when installing it rear facing using the vehicle's seatbelt, which doesnt make it ideal for switching between vehicles*the instruction manual is pretty useless when trying to figure out how to install. i had to search and search for a good install video. i ended up watching how to install the clek fllo which helped the most for installing rear facing and seat belt. (tip: when installing using seat belt, only use ONE of the clips) *rear facing you need to attach the plastic cheese wedge (comes with carseat) which makes the carseat sit way too high. baby is window level in our Ford Fusion and Ford F250The pros of this carseat definitely outweigh the cons for us. we use these car seats in our Ford Fusion since theyre so narrow. before we couldn't fit a person in the middle with our other carseats but now they fit just fine.

We love our foonfs! My daughter has been in her pink one since she was 9 months old and is always comfy. She is 3 1/2, 90th percentile in height and has plenty of room to continue rearfacing. It is tall, but that hasn't given us any problems. When we first got it, she immediately stopped crying during car rides because she can see out the windows. Clean up is so easy, and so is install. We haven't been able to use our new Capri yet, because our son is not due until June, but I expect he will love it too. Also love that we are able to use it from birth this time since we bought an infant thingy to go with it.

We purchased the Clek foonf for our 5 month old, as he has outgrown his infant carrier. We never used Clek before, but we decided to try it based on the superior safety reviews. He fits very comfortably in this seat with the infant insert. The height and adjustability on the head rest is nice, as it will hold him until he is 5-6 years old.
Foonf lives up to reviews and money
By Kevin

High safety ratings, ease of installation, beautifully designed, quality materials, accessories specifically designed for travel and seat protection, what more would you like? Installation was step by step in the manual, and easy to do. Clek also offers videos of each step online. We have it rear facing with the rebound bar secured with the latch system belts to the metal anchor rings which make install that much easier. Once we forward face the seat the install be even easier with the latch system to the seat anchors. I've read reviews on the weight being an issue; seems to be about 10 lbs more than other seats. I've moved the seat between cars once and it didn't bother me. If I had to move a convertible seat daily, it wouldn't matter which seat, size or weight, it would be cumbersome. Aesthetics are important to me, as I do not enjoy the look of most "kids" stuff, but this is the best I've seen. Great modern design and refined fabric on the "cloud" seat. This seat is taller than most other seats with the leveling base that is included, but it will be forward facing in a year so it doesn't bother me. I like the seat has a 9 year expiration. This seems to be the longest I saw compared to other seats. This is important since this is our first child and plan to have more. The seat also has 2 different recline positions for rear facing, (note the further reclined, the more space needed.) lastly the pad at the buckle for the leg/shoulder straps has been redesigned on the 2017 seats. The 2016 we have is round and forces the buckle to lay down under the child, so you have to pull it back before or after seating them. 2017 seats they corrected this and will sell the pad to previous model owners.

Pros
  • Safety, materials, design, brand accessories for this seat, ease of install/un-install, 2 recline settings for rear facing, anti rebound bar, seat leveling base for rear facing included

this seat is great for your infant all the way up to your 65 pound child. It's narrow enough to fit in your backseat along with 2 other children or even adults pretty comfortably.
Pros
  • safe. durable. comfortable.
Cons
  • one con would be that although it's footprint is small horizontally, it needs more space front to rear. As a result, the front driver or front passenger will have to move their seat quite a bit forward and sacrifice leg room
Expensive but worth it
By Thomas

I never thought i would spend so much money on a seat, but it was worth it. No doubt my child will be safe in this. The seat itself seems pretty basic compared to some other seats, but it is built like a tank. Not super padded but my child is still comfortable. She easily falls asleep in this seat when she wouldn't in her uppa baby we had before this. It doesn't have the self adjusting straps but everything is very easy to adjust. It is heavy and was a pain to initially install in my truck. Now that it's in no problems though. Probably not the best seat if you have to constantly move between cars. I drive a GMC Sierra 1500 and with seat in there is still plenty of room for passengers in the front and backseat. The seat sits up pretty high so there is not a lot of room to maneuver baby in and out. This is my first convertible car seat so this may be a problem with all seats. Overall very pleased. Bit the bullet and just bought a second for my wife's car because It was on sale and I was tired of moving it from car to car. Expensive but they can last 9 years, great warranty, and worth the money for peace of mind my child will be as safe as possible.
Pros
  • Sturdy, safe, comfy enough, easy to clean, should last forever.
Cons
  • Love everything about this car seat but with all the safety comes the increase in weight. It is heavy, making it hard to maneuver when loading into vehicle.

After much research, we settled on this seat. I love it!! It's heavy duty (although emphasis on the heavy). We wanted something with a bit extra in terms of safety and design so this is the perfect combo. We are looking at getting a carrier with wheels so taking it through the airport won't be as stressful. My husband is a strong man but even he said hell no on just carrying this thing through the airport.
Pros
  • Loads of safety features
  • Heavy duty
  • Beautiful design
  • Sits higher
  • Can sit 3 across if needed
Cons
  • Heavy

While it took me a few extra minutes to configure it for my eight month old in a rear facing position and very heavy (my husband had to carry it to the car), it only helped to confirm other's opinions on how safe and well made this seat is. Highly recommended!

While this seat does take up a bit more room than my Britax, I prefer it and so does my baby. This is arguably the best convertible seat you can buy. It's extremely well made, baby sits up higher to see out, fabric cleans easy, chest clip isn't too big, harness pads are thin but still plush, rear faces forever, steal frame, light fabric options for hot climates, ridged latch for forward facing, crumple technology, and the list goes on. While this seat is more expensive, you get what you pay for. Clek is the only car set company that publishes ALL of their crash test data, not just what they want you to see. This seat also has a longer expiration date than a lot of other manufacturers. As a NICU nurse, mother, and CPST, I fully recommend this seat.
Customer Images
Cons
  • Very heavy so it's not great for lugging around an airport, but hey it's also what makes it so safe
  • Compared to other car seat manuels/ sticker instructions, directions for install aren't as clear. This is why this seat scores lower in consumer reports, however, with a bit of reading you should be able to get a secure fit.

I wanted this car seat when I first became pregnant with my 3rd baby. I wanted one for each of my kids. But we went with Chico Next Fit Zips and I regretted the decision shortly after. We were in a devastating car wreck a few weeks ago and although We all made it out safely I had HAD it with standard plastic framed seats. Since insurance was replacing all 3 of our seats we thought FINALLY we can upgrade to the Clek's I've been drooling over!! So far we've bought this TokiDoki SpacePlace and it's amazing! The stock photos do NO justice. The colors are so beautiful in person. The design make this artist Momma's heart smile. It's perfect to fit 3 across the rental car we are driving and it is a TANK! It's heavy as all get out but that makes me pleased because I know should we be hit again *which I am sure given the road we live on and this being the 3rd time in 2 and a half years we've been hit* that all of my babies will be beyond safe, from my 6 month old to my 6 year old whom we bought the Oorb Booster for!

We bought a Britax seat after having used a Cybex Aton, and while it works fine generally it just feels cheaper in comparison. After having that Britax seat for a few weeks we decided to just spend more on the second seat we needed and went with the Clek after visiting a local shop. It's definitely a more suitable progression if you're used to the Cybex infant seats.Installed easily, making adjustments to straps isnt difficult. Would definitely recommend if it's within your budget!
Cons
  • Can be a little cumbersome to install and move between cars if you need to switch it, but once it's installed it's fine. Not really a concern either if you have a seat per vehicle.

We have the 2013 Foonf for our first child and love it, so we got the 2016 for our second child. We love this one even more than the first one! It's a tank and weighs a ton, but we rarely move it so that isn't an issue for us. It's a good looking seat that goes well with our interior, repels the sand and drool and general grossness our daughter gifts it with, and is comfortable and a great height for looking out the window (these last two traits are confined by picky four year old Clek loving brother himself). I like the new color choice and the improved crotch strap and shoulder pads on the 2016 model.

Pros
  • Insanely safe
  • Durable
  • Easy to keep clean
  • Attractive
  • Lasts for an exceptionally long time, both by expiration date and by how long it can be used by a child
  • Simple to install
  • Narrow width
  • Straps don't twist
  • Clek also has excellent customer service if you have questions
Best Uses
  • Newborn-age four (so far!)
Cons
  • Heavy (but unless you move it around daily.... And it's far more durable, comfortable, and long lasting than the lightweight spare we've got. And it's safer.)
  • Price (but we've used our first one over four years now, so price for longevity isn't bad)

We've owned a Diono Radian for our oldest daughter for 4+ years. We just purchased a Foonf for our 10-month-old and I could appreciate the step up in quality by the time we had it out of the box. This is the highest quality car seat I have ever seen. It is well-built of quality materials and I absolutely love the fact that it is made in Canada instead of China. Additional details that stand out to me are that the head-protection piece won't slip out of place as it regularly does with our Radian, and the straps snug up nicely - much more smoothly than the ratchet system in our Radian. We purchased this car seat due to the great reviews and because it was designed for extended rear-facing. We have been using our Foonf for around a month and we are so happy with it that we are considering buying another one to replace our falling-apart Radian.
Pros
  • well-built
  • head-protection stays in place
  • straps easy to loosen/tighten
  • Made in Canada
  • longer life than other car seats before expiration date
  • recyclable
Cons
  • sits a little high in the vehicle when rear-facing

She has a lot of room to grow and she loves sitting in this seat.

I bought a this seat for my 4 year old. She is still rear facing and should be able to continue to rear face for a while. She has no complaints regarding comfort, the straps sit where they should, and it is easy to tighten/loosen. I think the newer versions have improved padding as opposed to the one we had previously. These seats are simple to install and the anti - rebound bar gives a rock solid install. I plan to buy one for the next baby since they have the infant insert now. Highly recommend. *They do sit pretty high, so if you have limited head room I suggest you check the dimensions.*
Pros
  • Extended rear facing, easy install, stain repellent fabric
Best Uses
  • Extended rear facing
Cons
  • Sits higher than other seats, so while my kid likes to see out, it could be a tight fit in lower profile vehicles

The Foonf is by far the best car seat on the market. It's so incredibly safe....heavy. I know my son is protected in this. We also have the Diono Rainier and there in no comparing the two, the foonf is hands down the better choice. We only purchased the Diono after trying to get the Foonf through airport security....what a pain.....I would not recommend as it doesn't fit through the scanner and takes a long time to get inspected by the TSA people who are obviously pissed about having to haul this heavy seat over to inspection. The only downside to this seat is it doesn't have a washable cover. Even with this one flaw, I still think it's the best seat!!!

We bought this seat to replace a Chico infant seat. We were most interested in the Foonf because of the safety this seat provides. We've been using it for a few weeks and so far I would recommend it. It feels much more sturdy than the Chico and your can see why the price is higher once you handle it. It seems well built and the fabric is more like nice upholstery than a typical car seat. This seat is worth the money and then some. I feel that it provides the safest choice for our son. He seems to like the seat more than the Chico which is great.

We own a 2015 Clek Foonf and just bought a 2016 for our second son. The new seatbelt lock offs are SOOOO much better and made installation much much easier in the rear facing position. I love the Foonf. It's built like a rock and gives me peace of mind. Downsides include no way to adjust the shoulder strap height without rethreading the straps. This is a minor inconvenience.

My little girl always had issue being in her infant car seat and she out grew it very soon that's when we bought Foonf. Little heavy but occupies very less space and the safety is impeccable. She now doesn't mind to sit in this seat and enjoys watching vehicles move by!
Pros
  • Can be places on the center seat.
  • Safe
  • Material is amazing
Cons
  • Little heavy
  • If placed on the extreme right side of back seat row driver cannot check the blind spot that well

As a mama of six we have had a few car seats. I was a bit nervous about the expense of this one. I want sure if it would be "worth it". But oh my gosh!!! Yes! I am so very very glad we went with the amazing Clek foonf!

Pros
  • Anti-rebound bar included
  • Great for extended rear-facing
  • Easy install
  • Super safety ratings
Cons
  • Cup holder sold separate

I chose this car seat because of safety and design but what surprised me is how much my son loves it. Its high, so he has more of a view, but its also spacious and the fabric doesnt stick to his skin. My husband didn't think it was hard to install.
Pros
  • Safe
  • Adorable
  • Comfy
  • Spacious
Cons
  • Heavy
After 6 children and many car seats this is by far the best!

This is so far our favorite car seat. The straps are not twisting. The frame is the sturdiest we have had including the head rest. In fact this is the strongest head rest we have had. The seat is narrower than our Britax leaving more room for our other two growing children. The colors are bright and fun! I like bright colors in car seats for in the event a car is turn the bright colors indicate a child maybe in the car. Best part our daughter loves her "Monkey Seat".

Pros
  • Sturdy, straps to not twist, narrow, high for vision out the widow, bright colors, and fun print and colors
Best Uses
  • We are currently rear facing our 3 yr that is 37" and 30 pounds in a 2012 Honda Pilot center passenger.
Cons
  • large (if you have small car - thinking of FLLO for our older 4 Runner), heavy and spendy
Extended Rear Facing in Smaller Car
By Angel
from Mechanicsville, VA
on August 4, 2015
The Clek Foonf is a great carseat for extended rear facing in smaller cars, like my Toyota Matrix. Because of the height, the Foonf allows the passenger seat to move back a little more than it can with the smaller Clek Fllo. It's also one of the few options for extended rear facing with taller/long torso kids, since it goes up to 43" height rear facing. Because of its height, it can be difficult to get a kid in rear facing with a more curved door frame, like in my husband's Camry, but that's not an issue with more squared door frames. The seat feels sturdy and safe and is fairly easy to install, even with the seatbelt (since LATCH can't be used beyond a certain weight because the seat itself is super heavy).
Best Uses
  • Extended Rear Facing
  • Tall/Long Torso Kids

Ok so I totally love it! Installed it all by myself and it was super easy - don't know why so many complain - I just watched the tutorials on the Clek website. Baby hates car seats and normally screams as soon as I put her in them but with this one - not a peep! Super happy and even passed out within one minute of me driving the car! I think the reason she loves it is two-fold: 1) she doesn't feel enclosed in it with a ton of that extra padding and fluff that other car seats have and 2) she can see out the window - she's a super curious and observant child and loves to see everything. I was very hesitant to spend so much money on a car seat but the safety features on top of the seat height for my daughter was so well worth it. Score!!!!!

Great seat, a bit of a hassle to install

I wanted to buy this seat, but was hesitant because of the cost. I am on my third and final child, and finally I am "splurging" for all of the things I really wanted since the first one. This seat is worth the price tag if you are looking to have your child rear facing for as long as possible, and have multiple car seats in the car. My husband was a bit frustrated with getting it installed properly, even after I told him I read other reviews stating the same thing. Once in, it has been great for my 11 mo. old who is on the bigger side. She seems very comfortable and can see out the window as well as watch her brothers next to her. She grew out of her infant carrier early, and I wasn't sure about the transition to this larger seat, but there really wasn't a transition. We put her in it, and she was fine. I like that I will hopefully not have to buy her another car seat.
Pros
  • narrow, great design, comfy, rear facing longer
Cons
  • heavy, a bit hard to install

This is a much more substantial car seat than the previous ones we owned. I bought it for the ability to rear-face for longer and the added security features. You have to do some assembly out of the box. There are some good videos on the company website for installing the car seat correctly. It feels solid and safe and my kid can see out the window which seems to have reduced his car-ride fussiness so far.

We had such a great experience with our first Clek Foonf purchase from Albee Baby last year that we knew we wouldn't trust anything else with baby 2! Foonf is sturdy, solid, and sleek! We love that our kiddos can see out of the car windows so well while rear-facing until at least age 4! Installation is simple and straightforward. Our car-hating kiddos have both shown noticible improvement since switching to Foonf (and our toddler -who formerly screamed non-stop in the car) now asks to go for rides! Awesome! Thanks to Clek for sending us their Infant Thingy infant insert a month before it's release, we were able to get our littlest babe in a Foonf even sooner!
Pros
  • Sturdy
  • Safe
  • Comfy for babe
  • Amazing quality
  • North American made (if that's important to you)
  • And can now be used from birth with the Clek Infant Thingy!
Best Uses
  • Rear-facing until college -well maybe just until elementary school
Cons
  • It is quite heavy - I consider this a pro as it is more sturdy and better protects my little ones.
  • Large - again, a pro for me because it will comfortably accommodate my kiddos for quite some time.

we bought this in snowberry for our baby, she was about 6m when we got it. I love the seat but we ended up having to use a pool noodle to get the angle right so that her head didn't slump forward. The seat is also hard to install if your seats have lips like or sienna does. It's super easy to clean you just need water and the dirt comes right off. I wish it had washable fabric though. At 3 yrs old our girl is still rear facing and has three slots before she outgrows the seat which means she will be in this till she is 7 yrs old at the rate she grows.
Pros
  • fabric
Best Uses
  • rear facing for a very long time.
Cons
  • getting the correct angle is tough in some seats without a pool noodle.

We received our much needed upgrade of a carseat for our daughter. The transaction was fast and easy. The package/item came without any damage.
Pros
  • Great for safety as it is made of materials such as Steel and Magnesium, Its one of the longest rear facing car seats in the market. We searched for other carseats that will offer Rear facing the longest but having to go cheaper and we found that we would either spending way less but didnt have the option of rear facing which was a no brainer for us. We love that most parts (or all, not sure) are biodegradable and made by a group of people that worked on designing safety in cars. It also has a 9 year expiration date.We love Our Foonf and Our daughter does too!
Best Uses
  • Its best uses would be rear facing at up to 50 lbs. or Age of 4.
  • It fits great on Our '06 Toyota Corolla.
  • Easy to Install.
  • I love that our daughter can see our the window.

The seat is solid. I feel my daughter is safe in the seat. Extremely heavy. Not good for moving from vehicle to vehicle. I am disappointed with it because it doesn't feel comfy. It's almost hard. I'm actually giving it away and will be buying a different seat.

  • Solid
Best Uses
  • Suv
Cons
  • Weight
  • Not comfortable / soft
  • Too big for car

I just LOVE this car seat. It was a super easy install. Baby really enjoys being in it as well. She can see out of the window and this keeps her occupied. PROS: Easy to adjust straps. Easy Install. Fabric is super easy to clean. CONS: Heavy (but understandably so, with the building materials) It fits in our 2007 Honda CRV but it's a tight fit (rear facing). Mainly it's a squeeze getting baby in and out without hitting her head. Once she's in the seat we are all good though :) Upgrading to a bigger vehicle soon and that should solve any of the issues we are currently experiencing.

I purchased this seat for my daughter when she was 9 months old. It has been six months and still looks brand new. Super easy to clean and she loves being able to see out the windows while we are moving. I am debating about getting another foonf or a fllo for my niece. I am not going to buy any other brand of car seat since Clek makes the best products. It can be a little hard to get at the right angle, I drive a Montero and the seats are very sloped, when installing. Once it is locked in though, it is solid and wont give an inch. My niece's nautilus seems cheap and flimsy compared to the foonf. I love this seat and brand.
Pros
  • Solid construction, Easy to clean, Beautiful
Best Uses
  • ERF, toddler
Cons

When spending this much, I did tons of research. Trust me you will def be happy with your purchase! Did I mention they can stay rear facing up to 50 lbs? This was a major selling point for our family. We love the waterproof, anti bac fabric...haven't had any problems at all:) It is also one of the narrowest car seats on the market if space is an issue. Love the re-bound bar for safety too!

Got this car seat for my 10 months baby boy. He was 18 pounds at that time but he cried every time when we put him in the infant car seat. So we got this one thinking maybe he would like it. And this is the best choice. He loves it! He has more room in the seat but yet it is safe and he sits nicely. the pattern is bright and pretty. He likes to look around the pattern when he is in there.

I love how well my kiddo fits in this seat, and love the style - but it is HEAVY. The steel frame is definitely there, and it makes it difficult for me to move this seat...luckily I have a strong hubby. I invested in this seat due to the wonderful reviews and the fact that it isn't supposed to take up much space in the backseat, but as far as I can tell, it's just about as wide as a normal carseat. I am currently using it as a rearfacing seat for my 23 lb 8 month old, and when installed in the middle, it makes the seats on either side almost too small to use (we drive a Ford Escape.) When installed behind a seat, the seat needs to be moved forward quite a bit to accommodate. My Husband and I are quite tall, so it's a bit of a bummer, but to be expected regardless of which seat we use. Overall, I definitely dig this seat, and the munchkin is pretty happy about being out of the infant carseat.
Pros
  • Sturdy, stylish, will last for YEARS and can be used rearfacing for quite a while
Best Uses
  • Keep kiddo rearfacing for as long as possible, and invest in a seat that will last well into the time for booster seats
Cons
  • HEAVY, a little bulky, crotch strap release is difficult to press sometimes

Its a good quality product, engineered and made well. I was a bit surprised at how the pattern looked in person, its pretty but looks a bit more bright in real life than on the picture. Fabric looks pretty durable. Was quite easy to install and it fits fine even in a smaller car.
