    booster question

    I was wondering if it's worth paying the extra money for the graco turbo booster with the gracopedic foam vs. just the graco turbo booster? Is it really a lot cushier if we're riding in the car quite a bit on their bums and the little "pillows" attached in the wings?

    Also, how do the evenflo booster seats compare to the graco turbo boosters?

    Thanks

    The evenflo is flimsy, really. No EPS foam in the headrest, and just flimsy.

    I would go with or withour gracopedic foam. They are both good. I has 3, and they didn't had the foam.

    Re: booster question

    the grcopedic foam is really soft and nice, but my kids aren't as picky, so I never splurged on it.

    overall, though, graco boosters are nicer (more solid, better fit) than the evenflo boosters.

    I do like the big kid confidence, but still, the deeper headwings will provide better sleep support and side protection, so the turbo wins there.

    My niece has the graco pediac foam for her turbooster and she prefers it over the regular turbo. They travel alot, so that is a must.

    I would choose a graco turbooster over an evenflo.

    Thank you for the advise. I have an older Evenflo (still good though) and it is kinda flimsy. I'm going to BabiesRus on Friday to check out the turbo boosters.
