      What a great transition from baby seat to booster. This seat has more head protection than a regular car seat, so I know my tall two year old grandson will be safe. Very easy to slip the back into the base and change recline.

            I bought this seat for my 4yr old son based on the recommendation from Baby Bargains. This was their top pick last year. My son loves his new seat. It is so easy to install and use.

            The only drawback is that this particular model does not come with cup holders. My son misses this feature, since his previous car seat had them.

                My 4yr old son likes the look of the car seat. I like that it reclines and it supports his head and body very well. It is a little difficult to strap himself in. I always need to help. I also don't like that it doesn't come with the safety anchors to anchor it to the back seat.

                    After 2 years of using those seats I have to say that I'm happy with the purchase. I still think that bottom seats should be deeper but my kids don't complain. They are easy do clean, comfortable, they hold kids very well, they look cool. Also when my younger one takes a nap, he's able to rest the head on the side of the seat and he looks very comfortable sleeping. I'm very satisfy with those seats and I would recommend those to anyone.

                        We were sold on the superior safety aspects of this seat, but we had the normal concerns about whether it was comfortable -- especially if the side impact cushions on either side of the head were too restrictive. We bought two -- one for our 5-year-old and one for our 4-year-old. When they saw them, they voiced concern about the head cushions as well. But when they tried them out, they loved them. They also fell asleep in them on a short car trip the first day; this alleviated our concerns about their being able to sleep during our all-day journeys to visit their grandparents.

                          Our son just loves this booster seat. We got two of these, one for each car, in red/black. We told him that it's his race car seat since Recaro is a race car brand. He just loves the way it looks and feels and we love the solid construction. We did a lot of research before deciding on this seat. [...] Can't beat that.

                            This is definitely not our first car seat, or even booster, but I am seriously impressed. [...] I opened it, it was ready to go. The back snaps right into the seat, and the angle easily adjusts to fit your car and you're ready to roll. I am in the camp of keeping kids in the very safest seat for as long as possible. So, although this is a belt positioning booster, I am 100% confident that we have not given up any safety. In fact, holding this sturdy, but surprisingly light, beast in your hands gives you an idea of it's true strength and protection. The fit it provides my child with the belt position is the best we've seen, and we have tried MANY. I will recommend this seat over all others hands down- any day of the week. This seat does not disappoint!

                            It is a perfect seat for slim, tall children. This is the only one which goes to 59 inch height and 12 years old and this was also the reason I bought it. The headrest height adjustment is great. The seat is worth the price.

                            Comments about Vivo Booster Car Seat - Crimson:

                            Great padding, stylish, easy to install, soft fabric, but the seat should be deeper.
                            My younger 4.5 years old son is regular kid so his OK with it. My older 6 years old son has low muscle tone and he slips down simply because the seat is not deep enough. I think that 5 points boosters are better for smaller children and more comfortable for them. For special needs I recommend also 5 points boosters unless the child is too big. I'm going to extend the seat with some roll so my older one will have more thigh support and will not slip down.
                            Also if you have chunky kid the seat will be to narrow. It feels cozy for regular to slim kids.
                            I'm not sure if the seat is very comfortable for longer trips because of the seat.
                            Bottom line. This is good seat for regular older child and looks very safe especially with the side head protection.

                            I have this seat only in a different color and I LOVE it. It is lightweight, but I feel my kids are safe when in it. Some may say that it is too constricting with the side impact areas by the head and sides, but my kids have never complained and I'd rather they be safe than see out the window. It is easy to adjust, use and it's comfortable. It is well worth the price!!
