A little wide but overall great value
By MGill2118

I was lucky enough to be able to test the Symphony All-in-one car seat through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and it came at just the right time as we have been playing musical car seats between cars. My 4-year-old is content with the seat she currently uses, so we use it with my squirmy 2-year-old son. I mention squirmy because, I have found with other car seats it has been a struggle to get him to sit still long enough to get the belts tightened and pulled up through the shoulder however, this car seat is a game-changer. It tightens from the bottom, which at first confused me, but has easily become my favorite feature and it makes tightening straps fast and easy. I also love that it has the "freeflow" feature as cars can often get hot during MI summers and after long rides, he seems comfortable and sans a sweaty back which tended to happen in his last car seat. There are a few worries I have about the seat, one is that the crotch buckle doesn't have different notches to move it closer or further out/in although it fits my son fine, I could see it being an issue for a smaller child. Lastly, it looks nice and seems comfortable but it does run on the wide side in my van it works great, but if you have a smaller car I could see it taking up a large amount of space. Overall I think it's a great value for the quality you are getting!

* Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat. This car seat came in right on time. My two year old son would fall asleep on his other cars seat and his head will not be still,this car seat gives him a great support. The cooling fabric is perfect for this current humid weather. He doesn't complain that he os hot. I had some trouble figuring out the harness, easy to pull up and down. My favorite features are the fabric and the reclining positions.

At first look this car...

At first look this car seat looked a little bulky but in fact it is not. It's on the lighter side, was easy to install however o did have a hard time tightening the anchor but my husband got it just fine. My son is still rear facing and he fit extremely well he's tall for his age. I like that the cup holders have an elastic side so that different sized cups can fit but my son also puts his snacks in there so he couldn't do that. I like how the straps pull from the bottom I don't have to worry about them scratching my sons neck. I don't like how the buckle at the bottom sits pretty high and it cuts into my sons stomach. I really like this car seat and the fabric how comfortable my son is on short and long trips. I received this convertible car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel.

A good 3 in 1 carseat!
By ComfortableCarSeat
from undisclosed
on July 8, 2021
My daughter is 15 months old, so I only tried the seat rear facing. It was your average install using the latch system (meaning never super easy but also not crazy hard). Overall this is a good value for what you are getting - a safe convertible car seat with some extra features! It's going to take up about the same amount of space as other seats in the same class (it's not slim and probably won't fit in the middle of two other seats). The cooling fabric is a new feature for us, we haven't tried any seats with this yet and I was a little bit not believing it would work, but it definitely did. I'm always worried the cool air isn't getting to my daughter since the seat is rear facing and there aren't any vents over her head, but the fabric definitely helped keep her from sweating (we just had a heat wave in NY). I have two favorite features - 1 is that it clearly shows on the straps where the buckle should go and 2 - is how easy it is to adjust the shoulder straps - like nothing I've ever seen before in a carseat! It also says on the buckle where it should go. The harness was super easy to adjust - another great feature because it pulls from by the legs and not the shoulders. I've always found that it was hard to get the straps to the right tightness and this seems to work so much better! The cup holders are already installed and do not come out (which is great) AND the one side stretches for larger cups! Although the seat feels lighter than other convertible ones, I don't love that the plastic feels "cheaper" than other seats we have. I don't know how else to explain it other than that. I don't feel unsafe using it, it just feels cheaper, but it could just be a lighter weight plastic they are using. The directions are pretty straightforward and the seat has a nice spot in the back where you can store them which is a bonus! I was given this convertible car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel.

Comfortable & Secure
By MamaGutz
from Lawndale, CA
on July 7, 2021
I was lucky enough to test this product out in the newborn stage, toddler rear-facing, and child booster seat and all three kiddos loved it. My seven year old thought it was comfortable enough albeit too clunky. My 2.5 month old fit right in though I felt like she was way too small in it. However, my 2 year old is absolutely loving her new car seat. She's still rear facing but you can tell she's much more comfortable sitting in it. We just took a two hour trip and when we took her out of the chair she wasn't sweating like she normally would have been. The fabric is definitely more cooling than other car seats we've tried which is a huge win for us, especially in the summer. It was easy enough to attach to my car with the LATCH system and it surprisingly was pretty lightweight. My toddler had an accident in the car seat and we were quickly able to remove the fabric, throw it in the wash, and easily reattach it to the seat. This car seat is a major win in our family. I received this product as a part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel.

So Far I Love It
By CathyJ
from Oberlin, OH
on July 7, 2021
When I first got this car seat I was a little concerned. For starters you can see small bits of styrofoam at the lower corners and the boasts of "rollover tested" had me questioning just how safe it was in other crashes. Thankfully, we haven't had any accidents while using this seat so I can't say anything to that, but it does review well safety test wise so I feel absolutely comfortable putting my kids in it. If you don't read any further, the best part of this car seat is that it tightens at the bottom. Over three years of pulling on my kids shoulders and finally straps that tighten at their legs instead. Not their crotch, the back of their legs near their hips. This one feature has made me love this car seat as much as any other seat I've used. Lately we've had some 80-90 degree days and nobody is comfortable in the car. The AC helps a ton and we all manage just fine on longer trips, but I imagine being strapped into a car seat in somewhat like having a blanket wrapped around you. So far, my almost four year old has not complained once about how hot he is in the car in this seat. Might be a fluke, but I will take this as a win for the car seat. He is more than happy to tell me when he has a complaint about anything. The headrest is very easy to adjust as it's just a pull handle at the top of the seat. I both love and don't love that the shoulder strap adjustment isn't linked to the same handle. It's great that they are separate and I can actually pick which is closest for him, but I do love just making one quick adjustment. The reality is though I adjust it every couple of months, not every few days and I prefer the closeness to the convenience. I haven't yet had to clean the fabric and hope I can keep that up so I don't know how easy it is or isn't to get off. He loves the cup holders because they have a fixed side and an elastic strap side so his cups go in easily and stay put. This car seat wasn't on the top of my list, but it's worth taking a second look and maybe putting it on yours. I'm so thankful that I was able to test this through the Stellar Product Testing Panel because I had no idea such a great choice was out there. The only reason I knock a few points off this seat is it is wide. It's amazing for comfort and now that I'm not beckoned to sit in the back seat with the kids I don't mind, but if I had tried to fit two of these car seats and myself in the back seat I'd have been pretty squished. If you have a wide car, definitely check it out.

Some great features, but one major flaw
By Mamaof2
from Cumming, GA
on July 7, 2021
Right out of the box I found the Symphony All-In-One Convertible Car Seat attractive and simple to navigate. One of my favorite features of the Symphony seat is the FreeFlow cooling fabric and extra padding that make the seat comfortable yet cool, even in the humid and hot temperatures of the South. I have another Evenflo seat with the same fabric and I have loved it. I also loved some unique features of the harnessing system. There are visual reminders on the harness to position the shoulder straps at shoulder level and the chest clip at armpit level; it's always nice to have these important safety reminders to ensure a good fit every ride. The Symphony harness also loosens and tightens at the hip attachment point instead of at the shoulders like other car seats I have used before. I really liked this feature and found it easier to adjust the harness to get a good fit at the shoulders and hips. My biggest complaint about this seat is the inability to adjust the crotch buckle. Without a crotch buckle adjustment available I felt like I couldn't get a good and safe fit for my toddler. The crotch buckle sat about 2-3 inches in front of his body, allowing him to slide down and not have proper positioning in the seat. I have a toddler and an infant, so I love the versatility of an all-in-one seat that can grow with my children and can be adjusted to fit either child, however, I do not feel like this seat provides safe harnessing for either of my children. I'm grateful to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat to test.

Looks good but a little awkward
By TaliA

I was given this convertible car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and I was not disappointed. My older two kids (5 and 3.5 year olds) were even arguing over who gets to use it (we eventually settled on installing in my husband's car so they both get a chance to use it). Overall, I love the look of this car seat, it's comfortable for my child and, most importantly, safe - so it definitely checks all the main boxes. I love that you don't have to re-thread the straps as your child grows, but rather just pull them up. I also like that feature because it's easier to have different kids sit in the seat without having to do too much work to change for height differences. However, I would have liked there to have been neck guards on the straps for comfort, as we all know that if you put your own on, it usually voids the car seat warranty - so I feel like this should always be included. I also liked the cup holders - instead of being a hard plastic cup holder all the way around, instead they have an elastic band on the outside - I appreciate this for when you're trying to make multiple seats fit in one row, and also makes it easier to clean (I don't know about you, but my kids always put animal crackers and crumbs and toys, and I always dread cleaning their cup holders as you never know what you're going to find - at least with the elastic band that stuff will fall out on the floor to vacuum more easily). Overall this is a nice looking car seat that's easy to use, looks great and is comfortable for the kids.

Good value for quality convertible car seat
By Ebaker115
from Woodstock, GA
on July 6, 2021
With three little girls, my husband and I are always on the lookout for safe, affordable, car seats. The fabric on this car seat is dreamy and definitely helps keep my little ones cool. I also love how the car seat includes a bottom and lower back cushion. I know sitting in these constricting car seats must be tough, so the extra comfort is definitely a plus. The installation was not ideal. I'm pretty sure the manual that arrived with the car seat was for another model, as a lot of things didn't add up. The harness straps are easily adjustable, once you get the hang of it. Unfortunately, this wasn't spelled out in the manual, so it was confusing trying to figure out the first time. I would recommend this car seat, as long as you're aware that the installation process isn't the most streamlined. The fabric is great and I know it will transition with my kids for years to come. A great value buy! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Not slim but a cooler ride
By texasmama5
from Mapleton, UT
on July 6, 2021
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat. This car seat comes with several features, it's well built, good quality, and seems to be a good value for the features included. My favorite feature was the easy to adjust harness and headrest. I have three children of various heights who all need to be in a five point harness and this carseat made it easy to switch the harness height and headrest height to ensure a proper fit for each child. Just a quick tug on the harness and it slides to the right position and the headrest has an easy to move handle. Other features we liked were the dual cup holders, the cooling fabric, and the ease of switching the recline position. The cooling fabric did seem to help compared to other car seats we have in our car. The biggest complaints about this car seat included the hassle it is to switch from the LATCH system to the seat belt installation for front facing. We switch car seats often to grandparents' cars, etc and this car seat is a bit more complicated on the install. The other complaint is that it's fairly wide. Since we have three in car seats, we need slim car seats to fit three across. Because our other two car seats are narrow, this one fits but three across of this car seat would not fit. However, if a cooler ride is top priority, this is a great option.

I received this car...
By bmh8051
from Lorain, OH
on July 6, 2021
I received this car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. My first impression taking this car seat out of the box was that it was a nice looking car seat. It was wider in the seat than our previous seat, and the fabric was mesh like and layered so I could see how it would keep my child cool. It also felt solid enough for me to feel like my child would be secure and safe. Once I got to trying to adjust the seat for my child though, I was less impressed. The seat only has 3 recline positions, so he was layed back a little further than I had him In Our seat with 5 settings. I also had to read and reread the instructions to figure out how to adjust the head rest and shoulder straps. They adjust separately from one another, while our previous seat had a 1 step adjustment. The latch system belt didn't feel super attached to the inside of the seat, it just came out and went in a different set of holes for front vs rear facing and was held in by a plastic loop. The latches themselves were just the metal hooks instead of the plastic ones with the buttons, which I find inconvenient in my car because they were hard to unlatch as my hooks are set pretty deep into my seats.

A Florida mom's dream come true
By AnnieandG
from Pensacola, FL
on July 6, 2021
Living in Florida, this car seat is truly dream come true! Our car gets so hot, especially in the summers and I was amazed that the seat fabric always felt cool to the touch. All other car seats I've used I had to cool the car before being able to place my daughter in the seat. She is 15 months and still rear facing so doesn't get as good of airflow. Again the breathable fabric has made a huge difference in keeping her cool while driving. I love that the car seat will last her through the booster stage so we can keep benefiting from cool, comfortable rides. She was already out of the infant stage when we got it but not sure I would have wanted to use it for a newborn. It feels like it wouldn't be snug enough even with the infant insert but that's just eyeballing it. One downside to the seat is the instruction manual isn't terribly clear. In fact, some of the pictures looked like they maybe updated the car seat but kept the pictures of the previous model. He did figure it out but they ought to fix that. Overall a great car seat, especially if your little one gets hot while driving! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending this convertible car seat for me to review!

Wonderful seat!
By WillisFam
from Marshfield, MO
on July 6, 2021
While we personally used this only as a forward facing seat, we LOVE it! Our little frequently falls asleep while riding and never wakes up sweaty. The seat is also very roomy and fabric is still plush! The only con is that it is pretty wide from side to side, so may not work with multiples in a compact car space. We were able to review this seat for the product free as part of the stellar product testing panel.

Great carseat
By Lizzy42
from Mount Airy, MD
on July 6, 2021
So I had my 2 girls both try this car seat rear facing (18 months and 4 years). Just like other car seats, it's a little wide, but both kids seemed comfortable in it and fit well. It was nice and easy to adjust between the two of their heights, and the seatbelt slid so that you didn't have to reconfigure the straps! One cool feature I really liked was that there are patches on the shoulder straps that tell you where they should be on your child, which I think helps make sure parents are positioning them correctly! Never have seen that before. Part of what helped this is that the straps don't extend from the shoulder piece, they extend from the side legs so once you have it set to the right place, it's easier to get it back each ride. The fabric was nice and cool, it's summer so a great time to test that. Getting in the hot car the seat was not hot to touch and my daughter did not mention heat on the seat at all. She also wasn't sweating when I took her out. Overall I think this a great safe car seat and would recommend it! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Great car seat
By Mintykicks
from Oakland, CA
on July 6, 2021
I received this car seat as part of the stellar product testing panel. I ended up using this car seat in the forward facing position for my almost 3 year old. I did not like that for rear facing it only had one recline position. My son loves the car seat in forward facing, he always asks, "do I get To ride in my new cars eat?". It was easy to install. It took time to get used to adjusting the straps, as you have to pull out from the crotch buckle instead of the chest clip area to loosen the straps. Otherwise, it was easy to transition him to this car seat. I love the cup holders as they have an elastic strap to stretch to fit any size water bottle or sippy cup.

Wow! Safety and Comfort all in one!
By Mellody

I received this at seat from the stellar product testing panel in exchange for my honest review of this car seat, here was my experience: I have a small for his age, three year old son and have been looking for a comfortable, safe and quality car seat for him. I have tried other car seats in the past but the Symphony All in One is just what I have been looking for! This car seat is definitely high quality and sturdy but it is also super comfortable for my little with nice padding without making him too hot in the 90 degree summer heat! I also love the the cup holders! This car seat was easy to install and feels very secure which is the MOST important thing for me! I love that my son will be able to use this car seat until he is 110lb as it converts as your child grows. This is a great price for such a quality car seat that you can use for literally years! You will definitely not regret getting this for your little one!

I received this car seat as part of the Stellar Product testing panel. We have a Honda Odyssey and 4 car seats/boosters to fit. This seat was easy to install, fairly narrow and easy to fit next to another car seat not rear and forward facing. I tested it in all modes (rear, forward, booster) and I didn't have a single kid complain. The breathability of the fabric was great and the fact that you can adjust the harness height with just one hand and no re-threading is fabulous. Overall, this is a great seat and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a long lasting, multi-kid/mode car seat.

Good value for quality convertible car seat
By Ebaker115
from Woodstock, GA
on July 6, 2021
With three little girls, my husband and I are always on the lookout for safe, affordable, car seats. The fabric on this car seat is dreamy and definitely helps keep my little ones cool. I also love how the car seat includes a bottom and lower back cushion. I know sitting in these constricting car seats must be tough, so the extra comfort is definitely a plus. The installation was not ideal. I'm pretty sure the manual that arrived with the car seat was for another model, as a lot of things didn't add up. The harness straps are easily adjustable, once you get the hang of it. Unfortunately, this wasn't spelled out in the manual, so it was confusing trying to figure out the first time. I would recommend this car seat, as long as you're aware that the installation process isn't the most streamlined. The fabric is great and I know it will transition with my kids for years to come. A great value buy! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Not slim but a cooler ride
By texasmama5
from Mapleton, UT
on July 6, 2021
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat. This car seat comes with several features, it's well built, good quality, and seems to be a good value for the features included. My favorite feature was the easy to adjust harness and headrest. I have three children of various heights who all need to be in a five point harness and this carseat made it easy to switch the harness height and headrest height to ensure a proper fit for each child. Just a quick tug on the harness and it slides to the right position and the headrest has an easy to move handle. Other features we liked were the dual cup holders, the cooling fabric, and the ease of switching the recline position. The cooling fabric did seem to help compared to other car seats we have in our car. The biggest complaints about this car seat included the hassle it is to switch from the LATCH system to the seat belt installation for front facing. We switch car seats often to grandparents' cars, etc and this car seat is a bit more complicated on the install. The other complaint is that it's fairly wide. Since we have three in car seats, we need slim car seats to fit three across. Because our other two car seats are narrow, this one fits but three across of this car seat would not fit. However, if a cooler ride is top priority, this is a great option.

I received this car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. My first impression taking this car seat out of the box was that it was a nice looking car seat. It was wider in the seat than our previous seat, and the fabric was mesh like and layered so I could see how it would keep my child cool. It also felt solid enough for me to feel like my child would be secure and safe. Once I got to trying to adjust the seat for my child though, I was less impressed. The seat only has 3 recline positions, so he was layed back a little further than I had him In Our seat with 5 settings. I also had to read and reread the instructions to figure out how to adjust the head rest and shoulder straps. They adjust separately from one another, while our previous seat had a 1 step adjustment. The latch system belt didn't feel super attached to the inside of the seat, it just came out and went in a different set of holes for front vs rear facing and was held in by a plastic loop. The latches themselves were just the metal hooks instead of the plastic ones with the buttons, which I find inconvenient in my car because they were hard to unlatch as my hooks are set pretty deep into my seats.

A Florida mom's dream come true
By AnnieandG
from Pensacola, FL
on July 6, 2021
Living in Florida, this car seat is truly dream come true! Our car gets so hot, especially in the summers and I was amazed that the seat fabric always felt cool to the touch. All other car seats I've used I had to cool the car before being able to place my daughter in the seat. She is 15 months and still rear facing so doesn't get as good of airflow. Again the breathable fabric has made a huge difference in keeping her cool while driving. I love that the car seat will last her through the booster stage so we can keep benefiting from cool, comfortable rides. She was already out of the infant stage when we got it but not sure I would have wanted to use it for a newborn. It feels like it wouldn't be snug enough even with the infant insert but that's just eyeballing it. One downside to the seat is the instruction manual isn't terribly clear. In fact, some of the pictures looked like they maybe updated the car seat but kept the pictures of the previous model. He did figure it out but they ought to fix that. Overall a great car seat, especially if your little one gets hot while driving! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending this convertible car seat for me to review!

Wonderful seat!
By WillisFam

While we personally used this only as a forward facing seat, we LOVE it! Our little frequently falls asleep while riding and never wakes up sweaty. The seat is also very roomy and fabric is still plush! The only con is that it is pretty wide from side to side, so may not work with multiples in a compact car space. We were able to review this seat for the product free as part of the stellar product testing panel.

Great carseat
By Lizzy42
from Mount Airy, MD
on July 6, 2021
So I had my 2 girls both try this car seat rear facing (18 months and 4 years). Just like other car seats, it's a little wide, but both kids seemed comfortable in it and fit well. It was nice and easy to adjust between the two of their heights, and the seatbelt slid so that you didn't have to reconfigure the straps! One cool feature I really liked was that there are patches on the shoulder straps that tell you where they should be on your child, which I think helps make sure parents are positioning them correctly! Never have seen that before. Part of what helped this is that the straps don't extend from the shoulder piece, they extend from the side legs so once you have it set to the right place, it's easier to get it back each ride. The fabric was nice and cool, it's summer so a great time to test that. Getting in the hot car the seat was not hot to touch and my daughter did not mention heat on the seat at all. She also wasn't sweating when I took her out. Overall I think this a great safe car seat and would recommend it! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Great car seat
By Mintykicks
from Oakland, CA
on July 6, 2021
I received this car seat as part of the stellar product testing panel. I ended up using this car seat in the forward facing position for my almost 3 year old. I did not like that for rear facing it only had one recline position. My son loves the car seat in forward facing, he always asks, "do I get To ride in my new cars eat?". It was easy to install. It took time to get used to adjusting the straps, as you have to pull out from the crotch buckle instead of the chest clip area to loosen the straps. Otherwise, it was easy to transition him to this car seat. I love the cup holders as they have an elastic strap to stretch to fit any size water bottle or sippy cup.

Great carseat, easy install
By Olga
from Atlanta
on July 5, 2021
Verified Buyer
Three negatives: 1. this car seat is not good for newborns. 2. Your child’s head will fall forward if asleep in forward facing mode. Rear facing-must be leveled correctly, otherwise the head will also fall. 3. Fabric gets fuzzy and looks worn after just a couple of weeks. The rest is great! This car seat is very easy to install, has a metal frame, easy to adjust harness and headrest. It’s made well.

Cool car seat hard setup
By Whitney
from Daphne, AL
on July 5, 2021
I received this convertible car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. Upon first glance I really liked the aesthetic of the car seat. One of the features I was most excited about was the Freeflow- cooling mesh fabric, which did feel comfortable and cool to the touch. Living in the south during the summer you want anything that can help keep your baby a little cooler. I, honestly, have noticed a difference in how he isn't getting as hot as he was in his previous car seat. However, to even get to that point we had to go through the installation. In my opinion, the installation was a nightmare. Mine has the Secure Right lower anchor connector, instead of the Quick Connector anchor that I'm used to, and this connector took both my husband and I forever to attach to our vehicle. We do not need to take the car seat in and out of our vehicle a lot, but when we need to it is definitely going to be a pain. The five point harness is really easy to use and the shoulder straps look very comfortable on him and do not seem to rub into him like some have. Overall it is a nice car seat. It does what it says it is suppose to do! I just wish it was easier to install.

Features I haven't seen anywhere else!
By ahardison
from Fuquay Varina, NC
on July 3, 2021
This is the only car seat I have ever seen that came completely put together right out of the box (cup holders and everything)! That was awesome. While checking it out before install, I noticed some really cool features I also hadn't seen anywhere else. The harness straps have sewn on reminders of where things should sit for a safe fit (shoulder level). I also love that when loosening the straps, they loosen from the bottom instead of near the shoulders! If you've ever tried to tighten straps with a child sitting in the seat, you know that it can be super tough to get shoulder straps to tighten at the top, but when they tighten from the lap area, there was less that got in the way! The headrest adjuster was really simple to use as well. I was excited to try this car seat because of the cooling fabric that is advertised. We live in the south, where summers are brutal. My kids are very hot natured and no matter how much I blast the AC, are usually sweaty on their back after a ride in the car. I can honestly say that my toddler was not sweaty after a 30 minute ride in this seat on a 90 degree day! Not sure if it was a coincidence or due to the fabric, but I'm excited to keep using it! Only downsides to this car seat for me were the colors (black and red, we tend to use more neutral or muted colors) and the placement of the manual. At first I thought it didn't come with one, but it is tucked into a compartment on the back of the actual seat! Kind of clever for storage, but I could see where it could be easily missed! We are so thankful to have received this car seat as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and are excited to see how this car seat grows with our kids!

Comfortable Ride
By KelseyL
from undisclosed
on July 3, 2021
The manual for this car seat was very clear. I could easily read through the features and set up the car seat safely. I like the lower anchors options as the seat belt option always makes me nervous it will accidentally get undo. It also has a nice weight and height requirement for keeping your child rear facing longer if that is your goal. My daughter was very comfortable in this seat and the cooling fabric is nice in these hot summers! I would recommend you have a larger vehicle or you are only trying to sit one car seat in the row because I did find it to be a little wide and bigger then other options out there. That being said my daughter seemed to like the seat design being as it was. The shoulder straps are a little tricky to get adjusted since you have to pull both out at the same time but I was able to get a good fit once I played around with it. Overall I would recommend this seat for anyone with a spacious car or someone who is in a hot climate for the cooling fabric. Thanks to Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

We have owned this seat for 2 plus years. No only is it easy to install, safe for our daughter, and can be used through many stages, it also is completely washable. I have cleaned vomit out of it on multiple occasions and it always comes out good as new. Let's be real, parenting involves a lot of vomit.

Hard to clean
By AndreaM
from undisclosed
on May 26, 2021
We love the car seat. Its great for safety, size, functionality, and the length of use. What we dont love is when its time to clean it. Its an ordeal. You have to unscrew the cupholders to even remove the covers. Then what about getting to anything that has fallen down into the bottom cracks of the seat (small snacks like cheerios, goodfish, french fries, etc.). Its bearly impossible without completely disassembling the whole seat. Even using a hose to spray it out hasnt done the job. This would be one thing I wish was different.

Safe, Happy, Comfortable Kids!!
By PaigeK
from Paw Paw, WV
on May 26, 2021
This is one of the best car seats I've ever purchased!! I know that my child is secure and safe in this one. It is also very roomy and comfortable for them, and grows with them. I love how you can recline it back so they can rest a lot easier and better. Also the headrest part adjusts to keep their head safe and comfortable as well. It has little slots on the side to hold the strap pieces making it easier to get them in and out. The only downfall I didn't really like was the cup holders, unfortunately the cups will not sit well in them and kept falling out. Also I want to mention it is a little heavy to lift, personally I don't mind it but I know some may. But other than that I absolutely love this car seat and the fact that it keeps my child not only safe but comfortable and happy as well. This is my favorite brand of car seats and we have owned quite a few! I most definitely recommend!!
