    Re: Tall for her age

    There are many seats that will get kids to 65 pounds or more in a harness. Kids are often ready for a high back booster around 6 years old. Is there a seat your granddaughter is outgrowing? If you let us know what vehicle you want to put the seat in, whether there is anyone else riding in the back seat, and your budget, we would be happy to help you find a seat that will work for you!
