4 Stars Great booster seat, that has the LATCH system
The upgrade from car seat to booster seat couldn’t have gone better without this booster seat. My son loves that he’s in a booster (big boy) seat using the grownup seatbelt, and I love that it’s sturdy, and will help to protect him in case of a car accident. It also has the latch system to keep the booster in place, so it doesn’t become a harmful object if involved in an accident without your child in the seat. The colors looks great, we got the red and black one. The bag is a convince if your ever traveling. The back of the booster comes off too, in case you wanted/needed only the seat. The 2 cup holders are a convince for the child, for drinks or snacks. Just be careful what they try to hide in them, since they fold into the booster seat. The only improvements could be the arm rest, they are kinda short, and won’t adjust, as your child gets older. Also the weight is about the same as a car seat, so it’s not light like most booster seats. Overall a great booster seat, that will last a lot longer than most boosters, since it can accommodate up to 6′ 3″.

One warning for parents is to just go over the basic rules when transitioning to any booster seat. Such as NEVER unbuckle the car seat until being told to, or when the car is parked and turned off. Also not to lean all the way forward, pull the seat belt all the way out (otherwise the seatbelt won’t be able to do its job to protect the child if involved in an accident). Make sure to check that the seatbelt is actually buckled in after the child buckles themselves, sometimes they think they are buckled when they really aren’t, which is something you cannot fix of course after an accident occurs. Of course just remind them that the booster and seatbelt is there to protect them, kids usually don’t realize this is about safety, and not about the cool colors or the 2 cup holders they can use. I also had to remind my son a few times that the seatbelt goes over your shoulder, crosses his body to the other side where the seatbelt buckles, and that the lap part of the seatbelt should be on his lap, nowhere else, especially shouldn’t be pulled on. Kids just need that reminder so they don’t play with the seatbelt. In the booklet it does state if you have a car that has the automatic seatbelt (such as the ones that are located above the window, and move so you can get out when the door is open), that this car seat should not be used with those seatbelts(just a little FYI before you spend money on this). One other thing I must add is that while this is more pricey than most booster seats, it is well worth the money for your child’s safety.

5 Stars Son Loves his new chair! :o)
This is a great chair my son loves it!! It is very easy to install and adjust and if it is used in a reclining seat this chair can also recline. My son loves the cup holders as well. The chair is very comfy and I feel very at ease knowing my son is safe in this chair with all the points (from head to pelvis) of side crash impacts!Also with the belt guide at the lap area that helps keep the seat belt on the lap instead of riding up on the belly (very dangerous!!) like alot of other boosters using car seat belts do! LOVE this seat!!

5 Stars 4yr old loves it!!!!!
My 4 yr old had a Britax and he passed it on to his baby brother. He loves his new seat! 2 cup holders, a big boy seat belt and he says it’s comfy. Seat looks big so it should last him a while. I have not tried the travel bag but it is nice that it came with it. Very easy to install. The latch system is great because it keeps the seat nice and tight! It also has a great red color! Very happy with it!! :o)

4 Stars Great and Safe Booster seat for cars with Latch
After reading numerous reviews, ordered this expandable booster seat for it’s longevity of use and because of the steel frame and the way it’s built. It fits nicely in the car and is not as bulky as the convertible car seat that was in the car before. The cup holders are a nice touch too! The booster works great with Latch and the shoulder seat belt. Our other car is older and does not have latch so when trying it in that car it was very loose and not stable. For the older car we ordered another Sunshine Kids convertible car seat which costs more than 2x as much as this booster but doesn’t need latch to go in the car. So, this is a great booster if you have a newer car that has latch — having latch gives the seat an extra amount of security and keeps it more stable than just by using a shoulder seat belt alone. Highly recommend it for newer cars with latch.

5 Stars LOVE this booster seat!
We are thrilled with the purchase of this booster seat, and my 5-year-old son loves his new car seat! It’s a bit more expensive than other booster seats, but considering my son will be using his seat for the next several years, his safety was worth the investment. What truly sold me on this booster seat above all other brands were four things: 1) This seat has LATCH connectors which connect the seat firmly into the installed hooks in the 2nd row captains chair of my mini-van preventing the seat from wiggling around. Usually the base of booster seats tend to slide around/wiggle around. When connected with the LATCH connectors, this seat doesn’t move. 2) This seat has side impact bars/reinforced sides to protect the child in the event of a side crash. 3) This booster seat can be used until the child is 63″ tall and 120 lbs. This is more than most boosters allow which is great for those of us with taller children. 4) The head section is deep and well padded which keeps his head from “flopping” from side-to-side or forward when he falls asleep in his seat–which is quite often. He just rode in his new seat on a trip for 14 hours there and back and had no problems with his head falling forward when sleeping. Definitely a great purchase!

5 Stars Awesome travel system!
I purchased this travel system for our second child, I had an older graco model with our 4 year old that I was very pleased with as well. I am very very very pleased with my purchase! The actual color of the stroller is grays, and burnt orange, which is hard to tell from the pictures online. The stroller is very solid, and not flimsy like other strollers sometimes are. I LOVE the bassinet feature! When the seat is fully reclined, you can hook the feet part of the padding up, and it fully encloses the stroller for your newborn so they won’t slide down. There is also a window on the umbrella part of the stroller that can be zipped and closed with matching fabric from the stroller, or it can be rolled and velcroed so you can see thru the window. The car seat is great as well. Both the car seat and stroller have great padding! The fabric on the car seat is almost mesh like, but is very soft. Overall I am VERY happy with this travel system and would recommend it highly!

5 Stars Value for money
Both the car seat and the stroller are very good. I am happy with my shopping. Thanks to Graco for this quality product.

4 Stars Very nice set
We have this same system (but different color/pattern). I love how comfortable it is to push and for my son to sit in. We purchased it for an infant (I am 6 months pregnant), but until the baby comes, my 3 1/2 year old son is using the stroller. He fits in it very comfortably and he loves riding in it – very smooth ride. My husband is 6’1″ and I am 5’3″ and we both find it easy to maneuver. Sometimes strollers are too short for him to push without getting a backache, but this height is great for him (and me too).

We have not used the car seat yet since I’m still pregnant but we love the look. We like the padding and that it is easy to clean. We had a Graco travel system with our older son, but this is more of a “loaded” model, and we like it a lot better! Looks sharp and at a decent price.

My ONLY issue is sort of a major one. The stroller does not fit into the trunk of my car (Pontiac G6 sedan). It is a HUGE stroller to fold up in comparison to the lower-end Graco model we used to have. It does fit in my husband’s Saturn Ion trunk. We didn’t realize this until we purchased it, and it’s a pretty big deal…so please keep this in mind if you don’t have a large trunk!! It is very tall when folded.

3 Stars Okay ravel system
The set gets the job done. Stroller is more bulky than we expected. It fills up the cargo space of our crossover SUV with little space left for anything else. The simple handle twist and one motion to fold it is nice. Car seat is exactly what it should be with all of the graco safety ratings. We notice the front wheels of the stroller rattle more than they should from the first ride. I use the stroller + car seat combo daily on walks with the baby and it serves that purpose well enough.

5 Stars Great Travel System
I’ve been really pleased with this purchase. The car seat seems really comfortable (so much so that I finally gave in and let my colicky newborn nap in it because it was the only place he would sleep). The fabric is a really soft mesh-like material. I think it’s about as lightweight as these types of car seats can be (at least my brother has commented several times how much lighter it is than his baby’s car seat of another brand).

The stroller is nice and sturdy. I can get it into the trunk of my Honda Civic but it takes some minor strategic planning to make it happen, and it takes up the majority of the trunk space. It pushes and steers easily. I can’t comment on the forward facing stroller function since my 5-month-old hasn’t yet transitioned to that. Ideally the handlebar would be adjustable since I’m 6′ and my husband is 6’4″; I wouldn’t say that we have to hunch over but it’s just slightly uncomfortable on long walks.

I really like the color scheme. I have a little boy but I feel like it could work just fine for a girl too, especially if you’re not crazy about the standard pink or purple. Overall I have no complaints (except that my huge 5-month-old is about to outgrow the car seat, but there’s no helping that; it’s been great while it’s lasted).

5 Stars Piping hot food 6 hours later!
Excellent product…. Packed with hot soup at 7am …. still piping hot at 12.30pm! I warm it up with boiling water before I fill it with soup….. and it really does stay hot – so hot it that if you are sending it in a kids lunchbox you’d have to tell them to be careful!

4 Stars very good
great only a little heavy & harder for my youngest (kinder) to open and close tightly – keeps food hot a long time

5 Stars Thermos works great
So far, this thermos has worked great. I use it for my daugher’s lunch at daycare. They tell me the food is nice and hot/warm when it is time for her to eat.

5 Stars Great for school lunches!
I bought this thermos for my 5 year old daughter to take hot lunch to school. She loves the thermos and is so happy to be able to take lunch from home and I am happy she is finally eating her lunch! Works great and I would definitely recommend!

5 Stars Works perfectly
This thermos is exactly what we wanted. It keeps my daughter’s food warm and tasty when she uses this at school. I love the color and the tight, but not too tight, fit of the lid. Very, very highly recommended.
