Amazing Car seat
I did a ton of research before I picked this seat! I wanted something that could rear face for as long as possible, looked comfortable and easy to install. It has its pros and cons like every car seat does. I love that you can extend the foot rest to rear face for longer, big plus! There's also so many varieties of colors which is important to me. It isn't the easiest car seat I've installed, but either way this seat is totally worth it. ]Over all it's an amazing car seat! I have 3 in my car with all of my kids rear facing!! 3.5 year old boy is 40lbs and 40 inches. 2 year old girl is 25lbs and 34 inches. 6 week old is 8lbs and 20 inches.
My only pick!
Literally the best investment! Our 3 year old has had his since he was one and our 2 month old has one on the way. Love the material and it?s easy to just take off and throw in washer. I also love that it has 2 cup holders! I also love that you can rear and forward face in the car seat. Love that it grows with my children. And as your kid legs get longer, you can extend the slot if needed. Love that it has a ball on the side that shows you the stages of recline.
Part of me loved this carseat and part of me hated it for 1 thing. This was the seat my mom purchased for her car for my son. We tried the extender s few times but really he didn't need it even though he is tall with long legs. When we switched it to front facing, no matter what car we put it in, the belts would always get caught and not tighten enough. We would all take turns trying to tighten it. My husband found he had to put his hand behind the seat, scratching up his hand, to pull the belt in another spot to tighten it. We looked it over and took it apart on multiple occasions but never found a reason for the catching. We did love the variety of reclines for forward and backward compared to our other graco.
Love it, but cleaning is difficult
I did a ton of research before I ultimately decided on this car seat. I wanted something that could rear face for as long as possible, looked comfy, was darker colored (hides stains!) was easy to install, easy to wash, and over all just a good fit for our family. I decided on the extend2fit and I love it!! It definitely has its pros and cons. I love that you can truly extend the foot rest to rear face for longer, it also helps keep her dirty shoes off of the back of the seat to my car. I love the dark color that it comes if, the install was pretty easy. My husband did have a little bit of a time getting it right enough into the car with the belt that came with the seat. But with enough tugging he finally got it. It is difficult to switch from vehicle to vehicle. I recommend this car seat for a car that you use everyday and don't have to switch between with another car because install can be a little tiresome. I think my biggest con for the seat is that it's hard to clean. Getting all of the padding off to put in the wash is a pain, and putting it back together... oh boy that was hard. But I finally got it and luckily it's a dark color so I don't have to wash it as often. Figuring out the straps for correct positioning is hard but once you figure it out it's not big deal. I do think that Graco needs to be a little more informative in their instruction manual. I feel like it's very vague and can get confusing. Over all it's a great car seat! And my daughter is pretty comfy in it all the time thank goodness and above all SHE IS SAFE!!
We have this car seat for our youngest girl and it is perfect. I love how you can adjust it as she grows and it is super comfy. I also love how it fits around her head when she falls asleep in the car her head is not moving around so much on turns.
Give it a try!
As your child grows this car seat has his or her back. This car seat is an extend to fit so your toddler has it's very own personal comfortable and safe car ride seat. If your child grows that's okay just extend it. Great product, great pricing, and will be around for years as your child gets bigger!!! So thumbs up.
We love it!!
My 1 and a half year old daughter uses this carseat and she looks like a dang queen in it. My husband claims it makes her look even more sassy in her comfy big thrown of a carseat. It's been great for long car trips because of how comfy it is. Once shes put in it she's napping a few minutes after. Fits great rear facing or forward facing we put it in the truck both ways with out her in it to see if it would fit and it did perfectly. Was on sale for a great price at the time of purchase none the less so that was great also!
I like that this car seat has a high rear facing weight limit and that it is compact front to back. The issue we have run into is that my daughter is very petite and when we front face in this car seat it is no longer compact because of the recline required due to her weight being under 40 lbs.
Absolutely loved this car seat for my nephew it is so comfortable for them and has many benefits I definitely recommend
Absolutely My Favorite Car Seat Yet!
We have the Platinum edition, and would recommend it to anyone! I cannot give this car seat enough positive reviews! With its easy click connect buckles, this car seat is a breeze to install and/or move to another vehicle if needed. The leg extender has really made a difference for rear facing. The material is very well made, and washes easily (just incase you have one with motion sickness too...) The seat is comfortable with lots of padding and cushion to the fabric. It has a 10 position headrest for your growing toddler. I am happy to know that that this seat will grow with her for years to come.
Well made and safe!
Love this car seat! I feel like it really protects my child and will last a long time.
Good for tall kids.
Great for our little guy with his long legs but a little difficult to install. Also a little difficult to place him in and out of. But it's so big I feel like he's safer! Got it for a great price.
We got this for our December 2015 boy. Hes still rear facing (I doubted the leg extention but it really does help), and is completely fine. Its so much easier than the infant seat with the easy adjust head support and shoulder straps! Santa is bringing our Feb 2017 girl one for Christmas. Its very cushy and decently priced for how long it will last.
