Best Booster for Grandma's car



Hi all
We are looking for new boosters for Grandma's car. DSs are on the small side, 5 years old and 34lbs. They are in Radian's in my car, Parkways is DH's car, and we need boosters for Grandmas. She needs something light weight that she can pull in and out herself. It is probably only twice a month she'll need them so we don't want anything to install.

I do like our parkways but don't know what else is out there. The one drawback to the Parkways is that the side impact wings are too tight to wear their headphones. Of course the side impact is what makes it safe so I don't know if I would call it really a drawback.
I was looking at the compass (there are so many???) or another parkway, or waiting for a monterey. Or what about a Recaro Vivo?

I just weighed my parkways at 10lbs, so would like to stick to 10-11 lbs for weight.

Any thoughts?

Being that small you're really pushing in on the boosters, but if that's definitely what you want to go with I would do either parkways or monarchs. There's no way I would skimp on a cheap booster for children that tiny.
