    Thumbs up Dorel Juvenile Prospect / Eddie Bauer Cubb

    Hey, some of you may remember I was trying to compare the Apex with the Prospect/Cubb & couldn't find any locally....

    Well -- since the Target near my mom revamped their carseat aisle (from 1/2 of 1 side of a row to both sides of a whole row!) they now have the Prospect/Cubb in stock

    FWIW, Leila is 43"+ tall & normally only fits the Apex (even with 2nd highest slot, using the top slot) & Husky/Regent (using the 2nd highest slot) -- she is also even with the top slots on the Graco CarGo ... trying the Prospect/Cubb we discovered that she's even with the top slot.

    Our Apex is the 19" version though & my guess is that she fits the 17" version similar to the Prospect/Cubb as well as the CarGo -- however, the Prospect/Cubb IMO seems a nicer booster because the wings are deeper & filled with EPP foam for added side impact safety....

    Someone had mentioned concern about the head cushion pushing kiddo's head forward, but this only happened with the removable cushion & obviously stopped when I simply took it off the velcro

    The Prospect/Cubb also installed in my Freestar easier than the Apex -- so, if kiddo is not tall or is mature enough to use it as a booster properly then I'd say the Prospect/Cubb is my new favorite inexpensive 40# combination seat ... mostly as a spare though since I'm still a huge supporter of keeping kiddo harnessed as long as possible (using Apex, Regent, SafeGuard, etc.)

    P.S. the only reason I didn't post this in the reviews section is because I forgot my tape measure & failed to get measurements -- I'll be staying at my mom's for a while & hope to get that soon to create a better review....
