Is Pronto awful or OK?


New member
I posted a few weeks ago that my 2 year old niece was in a booster. I talked to her mom and she thought it was ok, but understands now why it isn't safe. She said she was going by what the box said.

So, I bought her a Scenera and traded her for the booster. I am wondering, is it an ok booster or it is one that doesn't fit any kids right? I know it needs head support from the car. If it is bad I am going to see if there is any way I can get kmart to take it back with no receipt. If it is ok, and fits DD1 ok, I can keep it as a back up for her. Don't want to try her in it though, if it is already known to be no good, no reason to get her hopes is cute and she will like it I am sure.

IME, Prontos are more often okay than not as far as belt fit goes, but there's not really a one-size-fits-all booster.

I posted a pic a while back of my DD, who isn't even 3, modeling in a Pronto. The belt fit was quite good. I also put my DS, nearly 5yo nephew, 6yo niece, and coming on 10yo nephew in it. The only one who didn't fit very well was my oldest nephew. He'd outgrown it, probably would have been out of it by 7 or 8 years old.

I did not really like it. It was flimsy and would fall apart and slide down when it was in the car so I was constantly adjusting it.

I used it as a lbb and it was fine though.
