    Good deal on a good booster?

    I need a HBB for my cousin (6 yrs 52lbs). Shes in a turbo in her moms car but I probably wont be able to meet her to switch it during the week (going to be picking her up from camp). I was considering the Maxi Cosi Rodi. Does this booster usually provide a good belt fit? Is this a good price for it?

    TIA for any help, any HBB that provides good fit for under 55 would be great, if you have any suggestions. Also, cant buy in a store, only online

    A high back Turbobooster meets your criteria. Low cost and good belt fit


    The Rodi is a good booster but you must have vehicle head rest support.

    Here's a Turbobooster at Walmart, $49.50.

    They also have the Harmony Dreamtime HBB... I haven't heard much about it, so I have no idea if it's a good one or not.

    I didnt check walmart, but found one at bru for 50 free ship too. Thanks for the links :-)

    ETA wow I like how the harmony looks! I would like to see how that is for belt position and how high it adjusts!

    I think that the Dreamtime does not have energy-absorbing foam in the headrest -- that would be a dealbreaker for me.

    Oh, bummer! Yeah, that would be a major turn-off.
