Boosters are perfect when your kids grow out of their highchair but the table still comes chest-high making it hard for them to eat. We also like their portability of boosters when traveling. But with all the choices, which one do you choose? I have only owned two and tried a handful when we were at friends houses, but I am big into researching products before I purchase them and often take weeks or months before making a purchase.
When I originally did research on boosters a almost two years ago, I narrowed down my top picks to two or three seats and ended up going with the Mutsy Grow Up! chair. The Prince Lionheart BoosterPod was in my original top three picks, so I really wanted to give it a try and jumped at the chance when I was able to select this item to review.
Although my daughter wanted nothing to do with booster seats for the past year, she has enjoyed sitting in this one. It is larger and cushier than our previous booster, which seems to make it more comfortable for her, but it works equally as well for my son. I think the a big reason she has been excited about using this product, outside it’s novelty, may be because she sees her brother using it. Honestly, she has been using it more than the baby!
When I am looking for a booster seat I am looking for comfort, age range, ease of cleaning, quality and overall aesthetics. If it has a million crevices and creases for food to seep in, it is automatically crossed off my list. Many models on the market seem to be just asking for food to seep in the cracks never to be seen again…that grosses me out and frustrates me if I know I can’t thoroughly clean it inside and out.
In conclusion, the Prince Lionheart BoosterPOD fits my comfort expectations as both my kids can sit in it for the duration of mealtime or other activities. It has been easy to clean and it seems to work well beyond their recommended age range (as my three-year-old has demonstrated). My son is also under the recommended age, but is the size of a 12-month-old and is sturdy enough that he can safely sit in it. I think it has a sleek, clean look and seems built to last so it is definitely an option I would recommend you consider when purchasing a booster seat for your kids.
