- Adaptable to infants and toddlers, thanks to its handy rear-facing and forward facing
- Graco’s Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system
- Energy-absorbing foam
- Latch equipped
- Three positions recline
- Adjustable headrest
- Helpful cup holder
- Easy to remove comfort inserts
- Seven years of usable life
These are the principal features of this car seat. So far now it’s easy to see that it’s a very solid product, but we have to dig deeper to find excellent reasons on why you should invest your money into it.
If you want a car seat that will be with your child for quite a while, then this is the one you need to get. Why? Because the rear-facing is perfect for infants, because it has a weight range of 4-40 lbs. And once your child grows, then you can start using the forward-facing, with an excellent weight range of 20-65 pounds.
The height limit is also important because your baby will outgrow the car seat at some point. But with the Fit4Me it’s not a problem because your child will use it for a long time, thanks to its 49 inches limit, which is quite generous and completely surpasses the average offered by other car seats. Due to that, you won’t have to invest in another car seat in a very long time. If you have more than one child, then when traveling with only 1 of them, he or she can use the car seat.
As you can see this car seat is highly versatile and adaptable, and these are features which will save you a lot of money in the long run, especially if you remember that these car seats can last up to 7 years! But this is going to be a discussion for our next section.
The problem with many car seats in the market is that they do not last more than a couple of years. They tend to get damaged with use and every time you clean or wash them. But we are glad to tell you that this car seat is indifferent to this situation because it promises you to last up to 7 years!
This is because the Graco seat is fabricated with top-notch materials, which guarantee you such an exceptional durability. This will not only save you a lot of time looking for a new seat but will also save you a lot of cash. This car seat itself is affordable, but it’s just a one-time investment, and you get seven years of comfort, security, and protection for your child. On our eyes, it’s a deal that’s very hard to resist!
And just as a sort of introduction to our next section. Even though the materials used are very resistant and durable, they are also comfortable.
Practical and Easy to Use:
Some car seats can be excellent in design, durability among other features, but they can be hard to use. Fortunately, this is not the case for this seat. Because it implements the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system, which is a no-rethread system. And why is this important? Because, contrary to how most seats work, to change the harness level, you only have to manipulate a big red button that has the sentence “8 Positions” written on it. You only have to move this button up or down as needed. The same for the headrest.
This Simply Safe Adjust system is something you will only find in the Graco seat. If you have horrible headaches when you have to adjust or change the harness level in your average car seat, then you should make your life easier and change it for a Graco. Your life will be a lot easier because you only have to move this button up or down and quickly you will adjust it to the level you need to.
And this feature is also very helpful if more than one child is going to use the seat because you can customize the harness level to each one’s needs.
But what about the installation? Again, it’s practical. This car seat uses a push-button for a fast and efficient installation. It comes with premium-quality lower anchor connectors, which along with this push-button, make installation a children’s game.
You want the car seat to protect AND bring comfort to your child. Because the last thing you want is to have your child complaining during the whole drive. You should make things easy and don’t overcomplicate everything, just choose the Graco and bring your baby the comfort he needs.
The Leg Room is spot on. It may not be the best in the market, but for children up to 5 years old, it’s more than enough. Your child will have plenty of space for his legs during the drive, so he can relax and let you drive, while you know he’s feeling great and is completely safe.
The headrest can be customized to your child’s needs. As we saw moments ago, it’s very easy to do thanks to its system. And we also have to add the 3-position recline features. You can adapt it to the one your child likes the most.
Overall the comfort is top-notch because the materials used make it possible, along with these helpful features like the generous Leg Room and how easy it is to customize the headrest. All your child needs to feel like a little King.
The most important aspect in any car seat is the security. And you can rest easy while you drive, because thanks to the Fit4Me, your child will be fully protected if a crash takes place. It’s built with resistant materials that will absorb the energy and protect your baby.
One of the most interesting aspects here is the energy-absorbing foam. It’s proven to be quite helpful in a crash, because, as its name suggests, absorbs a significant part of the energy provoked in a collision. In simple words: it acts as a shield. While it’s true that most car seats include this kind of material, we have to say that the one used by this seat is of premium-quality, bringing, even more, protection to your child.
It’s pretty safe to use because your child will fit very well there because you can secure him with the straps and make sure he feels comfortable while being protected by the superior quality of the Graco car seat!
Now that we have concluded the pros on this product, it’s time to take a look at the cons. This is an honest review, and as such, we also need to mention those disadvantages.
- Contrary to other brands, like Britax, it’s not fabricated in the USA, but in China. It’s not such a big deal, but we consider this a con.
- Even though harness straps are excellent, you may find it extraordinarily difficult to tighten them on small infants. But with the pass of the time, you will learn how to solve this, because it’s just a matter of practice.
- A bit too bulky. It may not be a great option for tiny cars, but it fits very well in most vehicles. But this is the price one has to pay for extended weight and height limits.
These are the only cons we have found so far now. Now it’s time to give our conclusion and final thoughts.
For less than $200, this car seat can be yours. It offers a ton of value with minimal cons. If you want to get a car seat with generous height and weight limits, which is comfortable and very safe for your child, then you need to get this car seat. Believe us; you won’t be disappointed. Just keep into account the minimal cons we mentioned, so you can see if it’s a perfect match for you.
