Customer reviews & ratings
The only qualms I have with this car seat so far is that it came in 2 days later than originally planned due to some shipping delay- which turned out not to be a big problem, but I was hoping to have it in time for a road trip. We love this car seat! We have a '98 Toyota Camry and it fits well (we currently have it rear facing, behind the passenger seat and in the "2" recline position). I don't feel like I'm eating the dashboard as I sit in the passenger seat, but I am only 5'5". We had originally installed in the middle seat thinking that was safest but after trying almost a dozen times to get it stable enough so that it wouldn't tip over on turns and preventing one side from being lifted by the tight seat belt strap that was holding the seat in, I finally gave up and moved it to the side. It took my ONE try to get it in securely, it doesn't tip in the least, and with the help of a metal clip to keep the seat belt strap from pulling up on the seat, we finally have it installed! If it doesn't work in one position folks, move on to another! I am impressed with the amount of padding the car seat offers and my 13 month old is loving it so far. She seems comfortable, hasn't fought the straps yet and seems to enjoy being able to see out the window (so much so that she forgets she has access to cheerios or goldfish...which is saying a lot for this chunk). I went with the silver berry ash color because we live in Louisiana and the lighter the color, the cooler the seat. Being that it's November, we haven't had too many hot days to test out how cool it stays, but I'll try to remember and update my review come next summer. We love the 2 cup holders, though our nuby sippy cups do not fit into them-we can find something that does for the car specifically. If you aren't sure which reclined position you want the seat in during rear facing installation, you have to unstrap the seatbelt (I'm not sure how this works with the latch system) in order to change the recline-which is kind of a pain, but not that big of problem for us personally. I am also impressed with the more compact size of this seat- not the most compact by far, but much more reasonably sized than other graco, chicco and britax models we saw in store. We plan to install our infant seat next to this car seat and I don't expect to have any spacing issues with that. One more feature that we love is the harness. It comes with legit padded straps, is easy to use (especially with the strap holders on the sides!) and the buckle release only requires one hand (and I'm not speaking as someone with outrageously strong fingers here). Overall, we are very pleased at this point.
Great adapting, safe, durable, comfy car seat!
This car seat has been safe, durable, and comfortable through the years so far and adjusted as our three-year-old toddler has grown.
BEST SEAT EVER!
I love this seat so much that i bought it again for my second baby. Its so afforadable and easy to adjust as well as install. My son falls asleep in it all the time and has no issies at all. Its well patted sturdy and great. I also love that it rear faces to 40lbs!
Love the convenience!
Love, Love, Love the convenience of this seat. The one-handed height adjustments and not having to remove the harness straps in order to wash the pad. Super easy to install and to adapt as baby grows into toddler into big kid. My daughter loved the plushness of it. She actually napped in the car! We both appreciate the dual cup holders. And of course the safety. We have always looked to Safety1st to provide the best safety for our daughters and they've knocked it out of the park. AGAIN.
Love this Seat!
I was a little nervous about buying this car seat because other reviews said it was wobbly after it was installed. It did take me about 20 minutes to install it correctly (I was also reading the manual) but the car seat is not wobbly in my vehicle and my baby has plenty of space. I used the Latch system and I didn’t like that the latches aren’t spring loaded but that’s not a big deal to me. I also found it easier to adjust the latch strap THEN hook it onto the metal hooks instead of hook them then tighten the strap. I drive a compact SUV and it fit perfectly behind the seat. My baby hated his other car seat and cried every time I put him in it but he has not cried at all with this one! I am very happy with this product!
I had bought this for my 1 year old and I love it!
It fits perfectly in my 2018 Kia Sportage! There's still enough room for others to sit comfortably on each side of the car seat. My son can put his sippy in his cup holder and snacks in the other. My favorite part was the installment was very easy, and colors are perfect!
Two year old approves!
My two year old is always so whiny in his carseat. When we got this new Grow and Go carseat he yelled "New carseat!" He absolutely loves it and has stopped crying when we run all our errands around town. The cup holders are so useful-the old carseat the cup holders were removable and were always getting thrown off and lost. The straps are way easier to use which is always a bonus.
So Far so Good
so far so good. my little man loves the chair. id give it possibly 5 stars but i just got it. so to stay fair 5 stars is the best i can go. but the chair to my little guy is 5 stars. only thing the chair is bulky. makes it challenging for three kids and various chairs to fit on back seat.
bought this for my daughter. it is a great carseat overall , my only complaint is that the strap for the shoulder has come loose a few times. Putting it back together has been a pain at times. Other than that we love it.
I absolutely love this car seat I bought two! it's easy to get the padding off to clean and super comfortable for my toddler. It seems no matter the stain it always comes out in a simple wash. We love that it has two cupholders and it's 3 in one! The only reason why I'm giving it 4 stars is because the strap you use to tighten the harness always seem to get stuck and it takes alot of my strength to pull on it. Sometimes I have to have my husband pull it, but other than that it's a great car seat.
Great at all stages!
We've used this seat rear facing and forward facing with a young toddler and as a harness seat and a booster with a 7-year-old. In both cases, it has proven easy to use. And easy to clean when accidents and car sickness have struck!

I love this car seat! My LO cried every time I put her in her carrier seat, once we switched to this haven't had a problem with car rides. This is definitely a life saver!
My baby absolutely hated an infant carseat, I changed her to this one at 10 months old. She loves it! She sleeps, eats, and plays in it while riding.. When use too, it was nothing but crying! I highly recommend this carseat to anyone.
I would definitely buy this product again
I just put this car seat in my van for my daughter and love it! I thought it would be to big for my van and her rear facing but I was wrong. She absolutely loves her new car seat as well. Super cushiony and comfortable.
I love the features on this. First time parents but second car seat. Love the recliner, cup holders and the adjustable harnest. Easy to make adjustments.
Not my first pick. Safety just wasn’t 1st to me.
Front facing in this seat I felt was okay. It is very padded and comfortable for my child. It can be mounted and anchored in the back easily and then buckled in which gives me peace of mind. I like that you can choose the angle and the instructions that are detailed on the side. However when I rear faced my child in this I was not at all a fan. It was rocking and moving and not very stable. When comparing to other seat brands I’ve owned whose features scream safety this just wasn’t it for me. I felt pushing the seat in front of it close to it and seat belt buckling made it more secure but not secure enough to give this mom peace of mind. I saw that other safety first convertible car seats come with an anchoring style strap that goes into the steel bars and I would prefer that method much much more. It was easy to fix the buckles, move them to fit each child. My 7 month old (22 lb, 27 inches long) liked it better because she can see more and like I said so very nicely padded. It’s just this momma that can’t enjoy it because of the poor latching system.
good seat at a good price
This is a nice car seat for a good price. The padding is thick and soft. We have medium sized cars and it fits well in the backseat. We haven't installed it yet but it looks easy enough to figure out. I am actually buying another one for our other vehicle.
2 yr old
Bought this carseat for my two yr old daughter and she loves it. Its super comfty, & cute. Dont have any complaints.
DO NOT BUY!
This car seat is a huge wasted investment! One petty thing is that the extra cushion is not fastened to anything and doesn't stay in place. The worst thing about the car seat is the harness straps DO NOT TIGHTEN DOWN ALL THE WAY! You really have to use all of your strength to tighten the straps and they constantly get caught and make it extremely difficult to safely put your child in the car seat. I have to reach my hand in the back of the car seat to pull the harness straps down so that they will get tight enough to be remotely safe. I honestly don't see how these car seats haven't been recalled yet!! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR SEAT IT IS NOT SAFE FOR YOU LITTLE ANGEL! I'm getting a Greco...
