On Saturday, January 22nd Lexlee’s Kids participated in Preschool Palooza at Cortana Mall. The event was a success and we were able to educate lots of parents and caregivers about the importance of childproofing their homes. You would not believe the ahh-ha looks we got from parents and caregivers. Many had no idea about all the items available to keep their little ones safe. As if that were not enough excitement for one day, I made a trip over to Babies R Us to take a stroll down the home safety and car seat isles! To my surprise, I discovered the Graco SIGNATURE Series! The Graco Smart Seat All-in-One Convertible Car Seat has arrived!
This car seat is the ultimate in car seat longevity. This convertible car seat fits your child from 5-100 lbs & features a convenient stay-in-car base so you only have to install the base one time (additional bases are available for purchase)! For parent’s ease of use, there is a one-hand height adjustable head restraint with no-thread harness as well as an on-the-go recline so you can recline your child without having to re-install the seat with each adjustment.
To remove the seat from the base you are required to unlock the seat. I found that when removing the seat from the base it was sort of tricky to get the seat back in place on the base. You need to be able hold that bad boy, while keeping a steady hand and guiding the seat properly back onto the base.
I love the idea of this product, but it is very heavy and definitely not designed for those lacking in upper body strength! Normally when manufactures design these all-in-one seats that last from birth through booster seat age; parents do not realize that cookies, sick days and potty training will probably get the better of the seat before reaching its full life span. This is definitely not the seat for you if you drive a small vehicle or need to fit multiple seats across the back.
