    RECALL: Apramo and Kukuxumusu boosters from Canadian Tire

    Details here: https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehicl...-p02-1448.html

    Don't use the seats. Return to Canadian Tire for a refund.

    I wonder why older models aren't recalled.

    The Harmony Youth Booster (formerly known as the Lite Rider) is very comparable in size and shape, and you might luck out and grab the purple one for $10 if your local Walmart has them. Otherwise dark pink or black

    Or the Cosco Top Side but it's the one with the shoulder belt routing OVER the arm on the buckle side, which of course makes the shoulder belt sit differently, which is good or bad depending on what you need.

    Or! One of the Little Tikes-Diono ones, which Canadian Tire sells, if you want to save yourself running around.

    Yup, and the Harmony is just a little bit narrower and works better for three across.

    I saw it today. Don't need 3 across. It didn't seem quite as padded as the Kukumushku (whatever the name is). But I think I worked something out so I can keep in her in a high-back. I wasn't thrilled with her that using that backless for the last couple weeks anyway.
