Graco Backless Youth Booster Seat: Enter to Win! (Giveaway)

Both my children are still in booster seats, and they will be staying that way for awhile for their safety.  When we have friends in the car with us, children are often twisting or turning to talk to them, or someone is bending over to pick something up causing the booster seat to drift out of position.  It makes me nervous every time.

Fortunately, Graco has come up with a great solution. Their new Affix Backless Youth Booster comes with the Latch system that made me so much more confident back in the day when my children were in car seats and infant seats.

While Latch was sometimes difficult to install in the car seats, we didn’t move them often, so it was worth the five or so minute scramble to secure them into the car.  The Graco Affix Backless Booster has a one-hand front Latch secure system that secures the booster to the seat, making moving it in and out much easier.

I am so thrilled by this advancement. I want my attention on the road and safe driving, not on whether or not the children riding in my car are staying where they belong in their booster seats.

The Affix Backless Booster contains a cup holder for drinks or snacks, plus a nifty hide-away storage compartment for your child’s favorite things.  When your child has eaten and drunk in the booster seat and gotten it properly filthy – as every booster seat too quickly does – the cover is removable and machine-washable for easy cleanup.

The Affix Backless Booster is designed for children ages 4 to 10 – those who weight 40-100 pounds (the more important measure than age!) and from 40″ to 57″ tall.  The AAP does recommend that all children under 4’9″ use a belt positioning booster for safety.  The Graco Affix comes in five color choices – Sailor blue, Ashcroft grey, Jillian red, Davenport black, and Kalia purple, offering your children a choice in their booster as they become independent bucklers, getting in and out of the car without our help.

The Affix Youth Backless Booster with Latch System sells for MSRP of $34.99, a small price for safety.  Not surprisingly given everything about this booster, it was engineered and crash tested to meet or exceed US standard, and in addition to meeting or exceeding all applicable US safety standards, the Afflix Backless Youth Booster with Latch System has been side impact tested.

    My son.

    I wish they’d publicize the statistics about the height and weight recommendations for kids getting out of boosters. It’s hard to keep older kids in them even if it is the safest thing when all of their friends stopped using a booster of any kind by first grade!

    Love the latch! I hate how boosters move around and wondered why there was no latch on them already. I’d love to use this for my son. Thanks!

    It would be for my son so I can move my youngest into his current car seat! It’s never-ending car seat swapping at my house!

    This is for my son/daughter. Still in the womb at the moment, but we have storage, so why not think ahead? :)

    I know someone who just had a baby not too long ago. I would probably make this a gift for that couple or some other people I know with kids (since I don’t have any).

    I need one right now for My 5 year old Grand Daughter. She was so small, until she decided to take a growth spurt, and doesn’t fit in her carseat. AND she so wants to be a big Girl. :(

    I am practically a bus to my son’s friends. It would be helpful to have one extra booster for his friends to have in my car, that way I don’t have to lug it back and forth with their parents.

    Either my son or my daughter. They just passed a new law here that you must sit in a booster seat up til the age of 9.
