Summary: I looked all over for a car seat that still used the harness system (because I know they recommend now that the child stays in a harness as long as possible despite what other car seat companies are advertising) and could eventually be used as a back booster as well as a backless booster, and this one has it all! I have always like the Graco brand and find their products to be very sturdy and dependable. This was very easy to put together and install into the car.
Summary: I first discovered the Nautilus when my oldest daughter was 3. She loved everything about this seat. Even on a 13 hr drive to Florida she never complained. She loved it. Never had any issues if she fell asleep in the car. I do admit it doesn't recline as far as most but it was an easy fix by just purchasing a simple child size travel pillow. She out grew the seat before we became pregnant with our second child.
Summary: Love this car seat! The colors are adorable! My daughter loves it so much she decided she wanted to sleep in it the first night we had it before putting it in the car. I especially love the storage areas under the arm rests. Let's my daughter store her sunglasses and other small toys for the car. It's big enough to make me feel like she's safe,yet small enough to fit comfortably in the backseat of my tiny car. Great value for a great price.
Summary: We bought this car seat for our 14 month old daughter, she loves it & so do we. She used to fuss about being put in the car but now she is content. We were able to put it together quickly & easily. Our daughter got sick in the car & we were able to easily take it apart, clean it & put it together. Most importantly it is safe & will grow with her to meet all of her car seat needs.
Summary: I highly recommend this car seat. The only issue I have is the price, but for peace of mind and child safety, can you really put a price on life? This seat is quite heavy and it does take up more room than I was used to from our old booster seat. However, I like that is it is made of heavy durable plastic and has much more cushion than some of the other seats I considered. I feel my child has more protection should we ever be involved in a car crash.
Summary: This is our second one for our third child (second child has same seat). Easy to install, take out and clean, etc. At first it was difficult to h hook the chest piece but haven't had a problem since installing it in the vehicle.
Summary: This was a birthday present for my 2 year old granddaughter. She loves it. Her mommy was excited that she now has a car seat that will grow with her. This should be the only car seat she will need.
