    Graco MyRide and Turbo Booster puzzle well?

    So, on my quest of making a 3 across.... I was yesterday at Wal-Mart and was looking at the car seats (for no reason at all) and notice that the MyRide is small on the bottom and then wide, and was wondering if the MyRide and the Turbo Booster can puzzle week next to each other, does anyone knows?

    I don't think the Turbo puzzles next to anything, except in a really big car with very high buckle stalks (it's a very boxy seat, incredibly difficult to buckle next to anything else). Harmony Dreamtime at Target might work if you need a highback. Graco MySize is narrower than My Ride, so maaaaybe that with a Turbo.

    The MyRide does actually puzzle with a Turbo. I can't find a pic of the MyRide RF next to a Turbo, but I know it worked. Here's one with the MR FF.

    Do you think it can work if the MyRide is RF?

    Re: Graco MyRide and Turbo Booster puzzle well?

    Good to know! I shouldn't let my Turbo buckling nightmares cloud my judgment. Though, give us a 1-5, was it actually easy (5) or whining annoyance and seat sliding difficult (1) to buckle that thing with a kid in it?

    Good question. I only used that set up once, probably 3-4 years ago. I know there was no sliding involved and I remember it wasn't too difficult for me to buckle, but I don't think a child could do it. So a 3?

    Re: Graco MyRide and Turbo Booster puzzle well?

    We had 2 turbos (both HB) and a Myride (both FFing and RFing) in a 2002 VW Golf. DD was able to buckle, but DS was not. I was able to buckle it fairly easily. The fact that the Myride has such a narrow base and sits up higher really helps.

    It didn't work!!!!!!!!! I have the TB with safety surrounds and the sides hits the bottom of the MyRide... so sad, it only worked if the booster was backless and she is not ready for that yet.....

    Sorry. I assumed you were talking about the regular TB. I should have stated that. The TB with SS just hits at the wrong spot with many seats.
