I love this car seat. I searched for a long time for a budget friendly, safe carseat that my 2 year old would use for a long time. This one won! She loves it, and loves to help me buckle her in. It also has a pretty girly pattern for her to enjoy. It isn't decked out, but we didn't need one with bells and whistles for car rides. I love how light weight it is and how easy it is to switch from car to car when needed. It was also an awesome price. I love how she can use it pretty much until she will not need a car seat any longer. I also love how you can harness them up to 40 pounds...that is very important for me and for her safety. I would recommend this carseat to all my friends...and I have. I have also had a few buy it from my suggestion. With the econemy these days, everyone needs a good product for less money. If you buy this, you will not be sorry. It will last you for a long time.
