    Chicco kidfit or Graco Turbobooster LX

    Which seat would you go with? Both are around the same price. Any others to consider around $100?

    It really depends on the size of the child and how it fits in the vehicle, as well as the child's comfort. Colors are important to some kids when they get to booster age too. Graco tends to fit smaller kids well, so if your school-age kid is small like mine, that could be a good option.

    You could also look at the Britax Skyline. It will probably last longest as a high-back, but doesn't become a backless.

    I usually let my kids pick their own boosters since they are old enough to have (sometimes strong) opinions! Of course with any booster you'll want to check the fit with your own kid in your own car, but most boosters on the market these days have pretty good track records of fitting most kids in most cars. I agree that I'd add the Britax boosters to your list of options.

    We have both of those (one in each vehicle) and they have fit my kids well for when they are just starting in a highback until they were ready to move to a backless (I had another child to pass them down to, so we kept using them as highbacks). I'd see which the child prefers and which fits best in the vehicles.
