Graco is known today for its durable baby gear. However it didn’t start out as a baby company. When Graco Metal Products was founded in 1942 in Philadelphia, it was a manufacturer of machine and car parts. But after making the first baby swing in 1953, a new mission was born.
Today Graco is still known for a car part of sorts—car seats. One of the leading manufacturers of trusted seats, Graco is constantly innovating to create the safest and most useful products for parents. Graco makes infant, convertible, all-in-one, and booster seats. Here’s a closer look at the perks a Graco car seat offers.
One of the most popular infant car seats out there is the Graco Snugride Click Connect 35. Highly rated in in crash testing, the Snugride gives your baby a guaranteed safe and enjoyable ride, while providing convenience for parents. Click Connect Technology allows for a one-step attachment to Graco Click Connect strollers. And it’s only 7.5 pounds, making it perfect for travel and families who are on the go.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies ride rear-facing until at least the age of two. However, once your child reaches a certain height, it’s hard for parents to see them scrunched up in the backseat. Graco found a solution for safety and comfort with their Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat. The car seat has an extension panel—a tray that slides out—providing five inches of extra legroom. That means your child can comfortably stay rear-facing longer.
The Graco 4Ever All-in-1 car seat is an award-winning model that, as the name implies, is meant to last forever (or at least until your child can safely use the car’s seatbelt). Versatility and longterm use are the selling points of this compact seat. It takes four forms: rear-facing, forward-facing, a high-back booster sear, and a backless booster. That means that it fits babies four pounds to kids up to 120 pounds.
