Love this carseat. When it came time to replace/purchase an additional car seat for our family this is the only brand we would consider. They are really heavy, but so easy to install and slim fitting to allow maximum positioning within the car.
- Sturdy, easy to install and uninstall, works well for light weight, tall, older kids.
- Seat weighs a lot, but ease of installation and sturdiness make up for that

This car seat is slimmer than any other car seat I’ve seen, which is what we were looking for!

This car seat has been amazing for us! An absolute lifesaver when we needed to fit 3 car seats across in our RAV4!

Great Seat! Glad we finally took the financial plunge. Had been doing a lot of research on convertible car seats for our 18mth old son. We already have a Britax, which we love, but needed something for our second car and for air travel. Although Diono Radian is heavy at 29lbs, it folds up flat and can be attached to a wheeled carry-on suitcase, making it a breeze to navigate the airport. Plus, the install is quicker than with the cheaper "travel car seats" that every blog suggests getting. We tried those seat priced under $50 and had a terrible time installing rear-facing; forward-facing is much easier, but we are still at the stage of rear-facing in a vehicle. We really like the fact that we won't need to purchase another seat until our son is riding in the back without a seat at all.
NO TAX and quick shipment. Thanks!
- Folds Flat
- Feels very secure and safe
- Will last us 10 years
- More room for passengers next to seat
- Must purchase install pad for rear-facing

We needed 4 of these car seats, triplets and cousin that is with us every day. First, but not most important, This was the best price I could find for these seats. The material is comfortable, they were moderately easy to install (compared to other car seats we've used) The triplets are getting older and I love the roominess of these seats. I actually sat in one (while it was on my couch) and I was impressed with the room and comfort.
- Heavy duty - built to last.
- babies againg 1 year old and up (in my opinion)
- I haven't com across any so far.

Love these car seats. Had to replace 3 due to car accident. Thankfully the children were not in them but I will return to Albee Baby if I need any more. Fast shipping and good customer service.

My daughter asked for another Diono Radian R100 for her 3rd baby. Now she has 3 lined up in her backseat. She said this one is the best one yet!

Very sturdy and fits 3 across nicely in my mid sized vehicle. It is a little challenging to change the car seats between cars so we mostly keep them to one vehicle.
- Somewhat difficult to install

This seat is sturdy, heavy, and complicated to install (if rearfacing). That said, it accomplished the goal of fitting between a Keyfit 30 and a Nextfit in the backseat of a very small SUV.
- Center car seat when putting three in a tight space
- Hard to install rearfacing

Great well made car seat. Super open and easy to get in and out of. It is also super narrow, so it makes it easy to get three kids across the back seat.
Love it so much we have 6!

These are by far my favorite car seats. We have 3 boys and have 6 Dino’s. They are great for airplanes too!
on August 29, 2018
Very heavy, but soild is good and so far sleeping has been fine, that was a worry.
Over all love it so far.
- Soild seat.
- Pretty easy to install.
- Love that everything has a place to be stored.
- Very heavy, so not a seat to be changed.
- No place in the fabic to install the cup holder. Though the seat itself has what looks like a place to place the cup holder.

This carseat is compact and a great deal.
- Narrow, folds. All staps are clipped on backside
Great seat for small spaces

Its a nice seat and its perfect to fit with up to 3 in the backseat of my car. Just what I needed.
Can fit three in a row with room to spare!

We have five kids under the age of ten and needed a slimmer fitting car seat to be able to use the third row in our Honda Pilot. These seats work perfectly, they give room for kids to slide past one another as they are so low profile and are easy to fit side by side using the latch system. Very heavy, but fold down for easy storage or travel. I like the fact that they are so heavy, they seem very sturdy and safe. My 4 year old who often falls asleep in the car is comfortable and enjoys her seat. The fabric is soft and easily cleaned. We have only good things to say about these seats.
Great way to fit 3 across in a small car.

I bought this seat for my 5 year old since I am reluctant to take him out of the five point harness. It fit him perfectly, and was surprisingly easy to install. (I did watch a ton of install videos). He is very comfortable in the seat, and it fit well in my backseat with a booster and a rear-facing car seat. I should note that AlbeeBaby shipped on the same day that I ordered and I received my order quite quickly.
- Easy to install
- Very heavy and sturdy
- Very comfortable
- Very heavy (really not a con)
on June 20, 2018
Great car seat. My 4yo loves it and says it's super comfortable. It's the slimmest seat I have found so far, definitely slimmer that the Graco slim fit. The price on Albee baby was a bargain.
- Doesn't take up much space forward facing.
- Nice padding.
- Very tall car seat and did not fit in my car rear facing. Looks like it would only fit rear facing in a minivan or suv.
on May 24, 2018
We purchased this car seat specifically for its stellar safety reviews as well as its narrow build! We shopped around and were very happy with Albee Baby's pricing! The only feedback my husband (the car seat installer had) was how heavy it is. But, as it will simply be in one car the weight of the seat isn't a deal breaker for us!Make sure you also purchase the Diono Angle Adjuster as it does make a huge difference in space as my daughter is still rear facing!
on May 24, 2018
These seats are very narrow which is great. We have two side by side now in my GL450. They are SUPER HEAVY though. So if you are looking for something to take in and out of your car a lot this may not be the seat for you.
- Narrow, Straps are easily adjusted
- Vehicles were you will not be moving them in and out a lot
on May 16, 2018
This is our 6th diono for our 3rd baby. All three of our kids love these seats, I love that they fit three in a row in my suv and my husband's truck. This version is much nicer than our 6 year Olds they have definitely made much needed improvements.
- Three in a row, longevity (lasts 10 years)

This is our fourth Diono seat. We buy them because of their incredible safety features and ratings and also because we have four kids in car seats so we need to maximize our space and these seats are perfect for that. This is our first cobalt blue seat and I absolutely love the color.
- If you need to fit 3 car seats in one row, you need Diono seats!

I wish I would have bought this first. I would saved money in the long run. Fits nicely in my van. It was great on vacation fit nice in air plane seat. My kiddos love their car seats

fits 3x in my 2011 x3 and the kids love it
from San Antonio, Texas
on February 10, 2018
Purchased for the Grands X2 and with the reviews and seeing the inner safety features has to make this one of if not the safest protective child devices for transportation today. After looking at the amount of plastic which goes into others this one left me no choice but to do what I could to protect my Grands. Price is always what we look at and Albee by far had the lowest price from the many others searched online for the identical product and getting them in 2 days really surprised me.
- Manufactured with metal and not all plastic. And removal of the cover for washing after grubby dirty hands with various foods to behold will be all over them for sure. Will have to see about durability. Fits 3 in the vehicle if needed.
- As previously stated having he dimensions to fit 3 safely will come in handy for #3 which comes later.
- Not quite sure of any at this time. Daughter loves them for her babies.

We have had the car seat for about two weeks. So far we really love it We picked this car seat because its safety reviews and its slimness. We're able to put it in the middle seat next to the infant car seat in our Ford Flex and still able to pull down the empty seat to access the third row.
- Well made, only 17" at it's widest so it easily fits in the middle seat.
- Doesn't come with cup holder, infant insert or angle adjuster. All have to be purchased separately.

We love our Diono car seat! I love the steel frame, skinny profile, extended rear-facing, high-back booster, grippy shoulder pads, etc. just the best!
- Steel framed
- 10 years til expiration
- Extended rear-facing
- High back booster
- Super heavy (but really not a big deal)

So far, so good! We have two other older car seats that are Diono brand, but this one is a little easier to buckle, so that is a plus. Hopefully it will work well for several years.

Purchase this to replace our old britax seat, this seat is definitely narrower and give us more space in the rear seating.
By Julia D.
on January 3, 2018
This car seat makes our old ones look like junk. it has a solid frame but is very narrow for the three across option we needed. Material is really nice. Only drawback is the booster cushion that sits on top of the seat makes the bottom buckle very short/close to the legs. We also took our first 4 hour car trip over the weekend and the kids said their bottoms hurt, but hey, so did mine!
on December 29, 2017
I fit three of these across in my hatchback.
- heavy (not a problem if don't move them)

Not what I thought when buying
on October 12, 2017
Does not fit in small car rear facing as thought and thought I saw it would be great in small car wouldn't be able to carry a passenger if installed behind passenger seat
- You won't have to buy a new seat I'm a grandma and its starting to cost a lot for car seats
- To tall for rear facing in small car

Not only can 3 of these fit easily in the back of my VW Jetta, they look nice and the kids say they are comfortable. I recommend them.
- Narrow seat width. Comfortable. Attractive. Easy to install. Folds to carry on planes.
- Fits 3 easily in back of small cars with 3 kids.
- Heavy due to steel construction. Not really an issue.

The Diono R100 is excellent! This frequently overlooked little brother of the Diono family is really a gem! Bought this for my 5 year old when he wasn't ready for a booster seat after his "forever" car seat expired. This would not have been an issue with the Diono boasting a 10 year lifespan and reinforced steel frame. I wish we'd have started with this car seat. It's trim and fits nearly anywhere, my 40# 5 year old has so much growing room and can easily buckle himself in. We are ready to purchase our second R100 for the 3 year old as she can't seem to keep her chest clip in place in her current car seat. The R100 strap pads keep the chest clip in the optimal position so I have the assurance that my little people won't be injured by improper use if we were in a wreck!The R100 was easy to install with just the seatbelt we were able to get a snug installation. It is hard to move from one spot in the car to another because it's so heavy but I know it's safe in any seat of my 12 passenger van. All in all a great purchase and we will be buying another very soon.

This is a wonderful car seat. It's quite heavy so not really the seat for switching back and forth between cars. We purchased it because it's narrow and we're having a third child. We are using it for our three year old who seems to like it very much. And we like it enough that we'll likely get another for our one year old soon. This was also the best price we found plus free shipping
