It was time to upgrade from the 5 point harness seats to the "big boy" booster seat. So on the hunt we went for the one that we thought he would like. After looking at several different styles we found that this one probably was the best choice. Being moderately priced was a great factor but, we also like that fact that it has two pull out cup holders on it for easy storage of his beverages while we are on the go. It is fairly padded so if we are in the car for any length of time it he will not get such a sore behind. The arm rests have covers on them that come off for easy cleaning as well as the base of the seat too. I love the dark colors in the fabric. They just don't seem to show all the little spills. This seat offers you the option of buying a back to put on it if you so choose to. With the back support this seat is designed to hold for children 3-10 years old and between 30-100 pounds. Without the back support it is designed for children 4-10 years of age and 40-100 pounds. I have always liked Gracos products and will continue to entrust them for my childrens needs.
