Recaro Vivo Microfiber Booster Midnight Desert
Just about perfect
We bought two of these boosters for our 7 and 9 year olds. They love them and so do we. They fit the kids perfectly, they fit the car perfectly. They are very solidly built and seem like they should be twice as safe in a crash as your average car seat. The size adjusment is simple and wide ranging. The material on these is really nice. It seems nicer than the vivo lite so I'd suggest spending the few dollars more for the vivo.
I can only think of a couple reasons why these wouldn't be the best choice for anyone else. One is they are kind of heavy. So if you have to lug the booster around frequently for some reason you will get a workout. Two is the fact that they are quite the sporting design. Like I said they fit my kids great, but my kids are both skinny. If your kids are on the plump side they might find this booster a bit claustrophobic.
Awesome carseat! We own 4 of them!
We needed new carseats once the children outgrew the "convertible" carseats which don't last nearly as long as they ought. We tried the twins in every booster we could lay our hands on. They hated them all. I was very impressed with the Recaro safety features but couldn't get my husband to agree to the price sight unseen. I finally found a Recaro booster in a local baby specialty store and was even more impressed in person. Better yet, both children loved it. At 3 years old, they were so happy with the comfort and I was so happy with the convenience and safety. I immediately ordered two online. After one week, both children refused to ride in my husband's car anymore because he had the "baby" seats installed and they wanted their "big kid" seats. After two weeks, my husband asked me to order two more. The twins are now 6 and STILL love their carseats and so do we. They are washable, lightweight, easy to move to other cars, easy to sleep in, comfortable and SAFE! Buy a Recaro; you won't regret it!
I LOVE this carseat
I was searching for the perfect booster seat for my 3 1/2 year old son when I came across the Recaro Vivo Booster Seat. I looked at their website and all of the safety features and compared it to other top of the line seats like Britax. My son was transistioning from the Britax Marathon so safety is very important to me. When I saw all of the safety features I decided to go with the Recaro Vivo over the Britax Parkway or the Monarch. I liked the deep head and body wings that cradeled my son and the side impact protection that they offered. Even though I have a car with side impact airbags in the front and rear, you can never be too safe when it comes to your child. The seat is very stable and fits perfectly in any seat in the rear of the vehicle. The seat offers three reclining posistions so that you can get the most accurate fit in your car. It also is adjustable and fits children through the age of ten. The bottom also detaches for when the child outgrows the back support and they can be in the base for even longer. I am extremely happy with this purchase and my son loves his big boy car seat.
