How about a Britax Booster?

Ooooh, why did they not have these cool fabrics for car seats back when I was buying for my kids? (I suddenly feel very old. “Back in my day, you could have a seat in grey or black. And we liked it!”) I’m digging the tie-dye on this Britax Parkway booster seat, and the fact that it’s 40% off with free shipping isn’t so bad, either.

This is a belt-positioning booster, not a harness restraint for a younger child. But if you’re needing a booster for your older child (remember, kids are supposed to ride in a booster until they’re 4’9″, which means that my nearly-10-year-old is still in one, much to her chagrin), this is a fabulous deal.


  1. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  2. That is a really cute booster! My son has a perfectly good one, but that is so cute…

  3. I am so glad that you still have your daughter in a booster! Miss 9 must ride in booster as well; and she hates it. Where I live, most parents do not put their older children in boosters. Miss 9 is average for her age, and yet she is the only one in her class in a booster seat. What a sad statement on the importance of safety for our kids.

  4. Um, if 4’9″ was the rule back in the day, when I was a kid — I would have been in a booster in HIGH SCHOOL.

    Mind you, when I was kid, I rode in my family’s Olds on the back deck of the car or on the armrest between the front two seats — um, without a seatbelt, of course. Back then, seat belts were for wimps.

  5. What makes you (and me, b/c I immediately got it) old isn’t the difference in boosters–but your SNL reference!

  6. Dang dang dang I wish that had a harness with it too…we have a not-quite-3-yr-old, too big for his current seat, too small for a booster. 🙁 Great print though.

  7. I’m 5 inches from being in a booster?? Geez.

    Florida: All children 5 years of age or younger must be properly restrained no matter where they are sitting in the vehicle. Children through age 3 must be secured in a separate carrier or a vehicle manufacturer’s integrated child safety seat. For children aged 4 through 5 years, a separate carrier, an integrated child safety seat, or a safety belt may be used. (FL Statute 316.613).

  8. I just bought this seat for $150 from Amazon . It’s a 5 pt. harness for up to 65 lbs and converts all the way down to a backless booster. They say it’s the last car seat we’ll need to buy… Plus… my daughter LOVES it! On a side note, Amazon is weird – they list it from a 3rd party for 2X their amount but if you look closely at the product web page, you see that Amazon themselves sell it for the $150 price.
