The Good & The Bad
The Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat seems to be a pretty good deal. The price is great, and most of the reviewers were extremely pleased with it. In fact, 81 out o 89 reviewers rated it 4 to 5 stars with 5 being the max. That’s a 91% customer satisfaction rating. The most loved features were the retractable dual cup holders, even though they’re a pain to pull out, the simple one-handed height adjustment, and the fact that it’s extremely lightweight making it super portable, especially in backless mode. Most felt that the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat was plenty comfy, although there were a few that wished it had more padding. Also, the seat itself is extremely narrow, so if you have more than one car seat you need to fit in the back seat, the Evenflo Big Kid Booster doesn’t take up much room.
As for the negative feedback, the number one complaint was the lightweight plastic. Several of the reviewers complained that it felt cheap and flimsy. Quite a few felt that the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat would be a great secondary booster seat, but not a main one. Also, a few of the reviewers also complained that the cup holders were hard to pull out, and that they must be pulled out before the child sits in the seat. Now keep in mind, the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat is a quarter of the price of a Britax Booster Seat, which are considered to be the TOP end booster seats, so of course it won’t have all the bells and whistles or even the high dollar material.
All in all, those who had complaints still felt that the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat was a good purchase for the price. See for yourself what others had to say about their Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat below.
Most narrow seat on the market, April 19, 2011
By H. Gardner “Super Mom Shopper” (Provo, UT)
I have 4 kids in car seats. The Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat is #12 for us. We rotate them in and out as the seat gets older, and the kids get bigger. I was looking for a nice, safe seat, that was narrow. This helps if you are trying to get three in car seats in the back of the car. I can do 3 in the back seat with two in the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat. The other is a regular booster from britax.
I also love how plush the seat is. I have purchased an Evenflo Seat before and I hated it. This one I love. It allows you to move the arms up and down and move/remove the cup holders. I also like that you can remove the back of the seat with ease. The Britax was tricky to remove the back of the seat. I liked the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat so much I bought a second one for our other car.
