    Recaro Vivo or Recaro Pro Sport?

    Hi. This is my first time posting on this group and I have a question, hopefully this is the right place.

    I was reading around online and was looking for a booster for my 7 1/2 year old. My son is 56 inches and 67 pounds.
    He outgrew the back of the Graco High back booster. So for right now he is in a backless booster and he loves to sleep so I need something with a high back.
    I saw the recaro seats and they look nice. I am leaning towards the Recaro Pro Sport for him as it looks like it goes taller and goes to 120 pounds.


    I am hoping this seat would be good for him to sleep in?

    Of those two I'd go for the ProSport. It's taller, like you said, and it offers a lot more leg support than the Vivo.

    I'd also look at the Sunshine Kids Monterey and Britax Parkway SG, and maybe the Clek Oobr.

    No, the SG is taller at 21.5". The ProBooster is 20.75".

    Thank you Wendy! He tried out my friends Parkway, but not the one with the clip and he was at the red slots were touching his shoulders at the highest setting. Is the new parkway shorter or taller than the old one?
    So sorry for all these questions.

    Just wanted to throw this in for you . . .
    We purchased the Probooster a few months ago and ABSOLUTLEY LOVE IT!!! Comfort wise- it is very comfortable for my son- lots of padding, but best of all, the seatbelt fit (for him, anyway) is PERFECT (He is med height and thin).
    Totally awesome seat- and we tried many boosters!
