Ok, here's a stumper, but I need a starting place.

Today I bought a commute vehicle (traveling 200+ miles a day to and from work) of an 05 Toyota Prius. Occasionally, I'll need to put all 3 children in it. What fits? All of my kids are small for their ages, ods is 7.75,50 lbs in a hbb, yds is 5, 35 lbs, still fits (barely) in a Scenera, dd is 2.75 and still RFing. I'd like to keep the younger 2 harnessed.

To play with I've got...
2 Sceneras
Combi Avatar (I know, this is big, but I've got it, so...)
Britax BV
Britax WZ (expires next year...march-ish)
Combi Kobuck hbb
Compas B505
Turbo lbb
Combi Dakota lbb

Any thoughts? I'm not opposed to buying a new seat (feed my addiction here, lol) but it's going to need to be narrow, and I'm not sure which kid to buy it for...Ods? New narrow booster? (New parkway anyone? :p) Yds? Ydd, who's only ever gotten a Scenera of her own and always used hand me downs otherwise? (can you see I've got a problem here?...I love to buy seats! :D) But, if I can make it work with what I've got, I should...:whistle:

Thanks for any imput,

A RF Radian has plenty of room in the Prius, outboard passenger (remember it can't touch the front seat though.) So pretty much anything will probably RF there but you do need room next to it. I put FF Radian, Ride Safer Travel Vest, RF Radian in the Prius we rented (all Radians across didn't fit too well and I didn't have time to play with it.)

I'd probably put the Scenera RF outboard passenger for the 2 year old, Radian FF outboard driver's side for the 5 year old, and a booster in the middle (try the ones you have first, but if they don't fit maybe a Parkway SG.)

If the backless boosters fit but you need a headrest and the one in the middle isn't going high enough for you, you could put a backless booster outboard and Radian in the middle. (It's a BEAR to get in the middle, but I've got some tricks if you need them, I did eventually get it.)
