Momtrends team member, Brooke Stewart, has been testing the Clek Olli Booster for the past month. Read the Momtrends review:
It was definitely time for my 5 1/2 year old to give his convertible car seat to his younger brother and upgrade to a booster seat. So, I was excited when Clek asked us to check out their new Paul Frank olli booster.
They sent us the boy-approved Paul Frank skurvy camoand my son loved it immediately. I have car-seat installation phobia (I've never personally installed a car-seat -- I always leave that to the professionals) - but this was a breeze to install. Just LATCH in the booster and you're ready to go!
At $104.99, the price tag is steeper than most booster seats, but justified. Because of the unique LATCH anchoring feature, the seat never moves and securely fits in the car giving even this car-seat phobic mom peace of mind. Just think: If you're ever in the car without your child - a booster that is not securely strapped in becomes a projectile seat in the event of a crash.
It's convenient to travel with or move from car-to-car with the special "strapy thing" that comes with every seat. Just attach it to the seat and you can carry your light-weight booster hands-free.
And bottom line, it's comfortable. From the extra-cushioned seat to the padded arm rests, my son was very happy to embark on our drive to the grandparents. A road trip free of whining is worth spending a little more.
Momtrends was not paid for this review. We did get a free Olli for testing.
