So I have yet another car seat question...

I've been trying to research this on my own but I'm getting pretty aggravated because I can't find what I want in my price range that has a good rating.

I need a new seat for my 3 year old. He is 36 inches and 33 lbs. I'm looking for a booster with a 5 point harness in the $100 range and all the ones I like are WAY past that.

If you know off the top of your head and don't mind sharing...great! If you've got some good links for me to check out...thanks!

Life isn't fair....get used to it now and you won't be disappointed later!!

I've been told that the Evenflo *Maestro is a good one, and not too expensive.

If you can luck up and find a Graco Nautilus on sale, that would be a good one too.

*edit, not momentum, the Maestro

Evenflo Maestro. Its has the same harness height as the Graco Nautilus so kids outgrow it at about the same time. The harness to 50lbs.

    Ha!! Thanks...I've got the new ratings saved to my email but everytime I sit down to try to look through one of the boys wants to be "Magnet Man". And I'm sure you can figure out what that consists off. lol

    AND....this is what they call themselves :)

    I'm liking the Maestro! Thanks girls.

    AND....what's that I see??? Could it be cup holders on the end of the arm rest not those flimsy things that fall off the side!! Hallelujah!!

    Yeah, it has actual cup holders built in with an elastic strap so you can put bigger cups in there too.

    Also, I hear these are cheaper at Sears, if you happen to have a Sears near you. Otherwise go to Target.
