We kept Mister in a five point harness car seat as long as seemed feasible. Close to his fifth birthday, though, he got precariously close to the recommended maximum weight for his old car seat. It was time to move him into a Big Kid Booster.
We had purchased the Evenflo Big Kid LX (model #3091927) on Amazon and had it sitting in the basement, just waiting for him.
We had chosen the Evenflo Big Kid LX because it was side impact tested, had one hand full body adjustment, had dual cup holders and pivoting armrests, plus the back removes easily to become a no back booster. Additionally, it is recommended for children 30-100 pounds, which exceeds Missouri’s booster seat law of 8 & 80lb.
While it is no longer the *latest model* of the Big Kid LX (in fact, I’m not sure if it’s even available anymore), Mister likes it just fine!
I love that he can fasten and unfasten his seat belt independently now. I also love that he doesn’t have to shove his water bottle between his legs to hold onto it, since he now has a cup holder!
We purchased the same booster for Sister, now, and she loves it, too.
In just a few months, Mister will be transitioning to the third row, to make room for the baby’s car seat, and I am glad that he has an Evenflo Booster that I trust.
