We purchased this booster seat about 6 months ago for our 3 year old. Because he was in the "inbetween" stages of height, weight, and age, we needed a booster with a 5 point harness system that could convert to a seat belt. Because of the 5 point system the prices are higher than the regular lap belt. When shopping, car seats were cheaper than a 5 point booster. Compared to the others, this one was the lower price point, but still has decent quality to it, plus it looks "good". The only draw back is that it is very "straight" and upright and it cannot be adjusted. Also, the cup holder is a bit out of reach for my child. It could be because he is small, but it doesnt seem like it is in a good place. I also dont know if it is movable to the other side. Right now its on the right, and is against the door, so between position and distance, my little guy cannot use it. Safety ratings seemed adequate as well.
