booster question

I was wondering if it's worth paying the extra money for the graco turbo booster with the gracopedic foam vs. just the graco turbo booster? Is it really a lot cushier if we're riding in the car quite a bit on their bums and the little "pillows" attached in the wings?

Also, how do the evenflo booster seats compare to the graco turbo boosters?

Thanks

Re: booster question

The evenflo is flimsy, really. No EPS foam in the headrest, and just flimsy.

I would go with or withour gracopedic foam. They are both good. I has 3, and they didn't had the foam.

Re: booster question

the grcopedic foam is really soft and nice, but my kids aren't as picky, so I never splurged on it.

overall, though, graco boosters are nicer (more solid, better fit) than the evenflo boosters.

I do like the big kid confidence, but still, the deeper headwings will provide better sleep support and side protection, so the turbo wins there.

Re: booster question

My niece has the graco pediac foam for her turbooster and she prefers it over the regular turbo. They travel alot, so that is a must.

I would choose a graco turbooster over an evenflo.

Re: booster question

Thank you for the advise. I have an older Evenflo (still good though) and it is kinda flimsy. I'm going to BabiesRus on Friday to check out the turbo boosters.
