Summary: Clerk Olli looks beautiful, but my brother was very upset when it did not fit his new BMW 5 series. His baby could not put his seat belt on. The side plastic arm rest stuck out a little and it covers many of the seat belt...It fits 7 series, but not on 3 series or 5 series... it needs to be 1/2 inch narrower...
Excerpt: I'm going to start with commenting on something annoying, but it's less of a criticism of a specific product and more of an observation about just how inconvenient those big, bulky car seats are even though I know that are ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY from a safety perspective. Yet, trying to take those in and out of a car almost requires an engineering degree. But, how awesome when my eldest son was old enough, tall enough and heavy enough to move into a booster seat!
Summary: August 3rd, 2010
We have two Clek Olli booster seats and my daughters LOVE them. They have much more padding than the other brands and it makes for a comfortable ride. Because there is a latch system, the seat stays put--no sliding around like other seats. It's super easy to install and removes with just one pull from a release loop. We love it and will be purchasing two more in a few months. Can't beat safety and peace of mind!
Summary: This was a purchase for my vehicle to transport our oldest daughter to school in the mornings. The trip is only about 1 mile so I felt comfortable looking at a Booster seat. Our primary seats for our two girls are Recaro with 5-pt harness and Latch systems. These are the basis of my experience and several months of reading reviews etc prior to purchasing. I couldn't be happier or more comfortable with a primary seat purchase.
But, back to the Clek booster seat.
Summary: We loved it so much we ordered a second one! This seat is much safer than the traditional booster because of the latch. Easy to put in and easy to take out. Great design and fun patterns that kids love. We have the zebra and the Paul Frank covers and my kids fight over them both.
Summary: While its true that the Olli is easy to use and comes in a wide variety of colors, the Graco backless booster is just as good at about 1/4 the price. It also comes in a wide-range of colors to please boys and girls.
