About Graco
In 1942, Russell Gray and Robert Cone formed Graco Metal Products, in Philadelphia, PA. For 11 years, the firm fabricated machine and car parts for local manufacturers. In 1953, Gray left the firm, leaving Cone as sole owner. Cone decided to manufacture his own line of products, but had trouble coming up with ideas. Enter David Saint, an engineer, tinkerer, and stained glass artisan who worked for Graco. Saint, himself a father of nine, was intrigued when an associate told him how his wife would soothe their tired and cranky baby while swinging in a backyard glider swing. Acting on this inspiration, he went to the drawing board and 18 months of hard work later, the world's first wind-up infant swing, the Graco Swyngomatic, was born. Graco sold millions of Swyngomatics in the coming years, becoming one of the world's leading manufacturers of juvenile products in the process. Today, Graco is a Newell Rubbermaid company, with 1500 associates worldwide. While a half-century has brought many changes to Graco, their dedication and commitment to designing and manufacturing top-quality products remains, and continues on.

Overall this is good seat. It is light weight and seems pretty sturdy. However, the turbobooster comes in many models, of which it is difficult to tell the subtle differences. I bought this one because the description says it comes with the Gracopedic luxury foam on the seat and padded side pillows. But contrary to the item description, this does not come with the side pillows.
Babies R Us offers similar models with both the upgraded seat and side pillows--they are called Abbey or Roanoke. This is the only model that comes with the neck pillow.

I am very happy with this purchase. I am a Britax Mommy and have been since my son was born but just so happened to check Consumer Reports before I purchased his "Big Boy" seat and was glad I did.

They gave this seat the following review: Over all score 82 (the highest of any booster seat) Graco TurboBooster 8493 TurboBooster SafeSeat (Step 3) 8496 $50, TurboBooster SafeSeat (Step 3) 8497 $50,TurboBooster SafeSeat (Step 3) 8498 $50,TurboBooster SafeSeat (Step 3) 8673 $60,TurboBooster SafeSeat (Step 3) 8674 $70

This seat is actually several models but this one that I purchased allows for the back of the seat to detach when they are older and no longer need the back. It also comes with a neck pillow. Unfortunately I did not get this in my box and simply called GRACO and they sent one right out to me. Excellent customer service!

My son is not yet 3 years old but exceeds the mandatory weight and height limits to use the seat. He is not a large child but fits perfectly in it. I have posted his photo in the seat so that you can judge for yourself on the sizing.

From one Britax mother to another don't spend the extra money on the name. Britax did not even make the Consumer Reports list. I am pleased and I am also very concerned with my son's safety that is why I always purchased Britax. This time GRACO came out tops!

As far as my son being comfortable he is able to be free in his seat and still be safe. He can reach his toys and he can also nap comfortably. He dies not complain at all now that we have the new seat. I personally made a wise decision. The seat also fits great in my Xterra and both cup holders on the seat can be pulled out with east for snacks and drinks. I am however worried about cleaning them when they get dirty. It looks as if it will be a tedious job.

Have been using this booster with my 3-year old for about a month as his younger sister needed his previous convertible (also a Graco); love the booster. Easy to use, my son can climb in and out of the seat very easily. Added bonus - the cup holders are in perfect position for him (location in previous seat was awkward and the cups always ended up on the floor, rolling under the front seat). At his age on longer car trips during which he naps, I do miss the 5-point harness that kept him in a better position (he doesn't much care for the head pillow that came with the booster), but, once seated, if you pull the shoulder strap all the way out so that it retracts and "locks" it helps give him some additional support (and keeps him from wiggling side to side). We are very pleased with this seat overall, have already been asked about it by many of our friends, and highly recommend it.

This is our second Graco Turbobooster with the GracoPedic padding. Compared to Graco's other standard Turboboosters, you get a little more padding with this unit. The kids think they are very comfortable and never complain even on long rides.

The neck pillow is nice if your child will use it. My daughter holds it for a while and then it ends up on the floor!

After reading many reviews on different booster seats that had removable backs, I decided on this one. The padding around the seat is very comfortable, and my son loves the pillow and the cup holders that come with it. He also loves the fact that he can unbuckle himself (once we're to our destination, of course). The seat stays in place very well, and we don't have any trouble pulling it in and out of the vehicles, when needed. Excellent product, and we're completely satisfied.

By S. Torabi on July 12, 2008
We bought 2 of these for our sons, ages 6 & 4 1/2. The boys love their seats. The cushioning they sit on is much more comfortable and thicker than any other seat I've seen. My only complaint is about the reclining hinge; it doesn't hold well. This isn't a problem when the seat is on a car seat with a sleeping kid in it BUT every time I have to move the car seat (from one seat to another or one car to another) the hinge lets go, and the pieces (back & base) separate. It's a little frustrating. The reclining option is great, no more sore necks or slumped over kids but I think they could have designed it better. All in all, I would definitely buy them again.

This seat is great for a light weight booster chair that keeps the seat belt in place (across his shoulder) and is VERY easy for the child to get in and out of. The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars is because the back of the seat is SO light weight, that sometimes when I am pulling the seat belt across my child, the seat belt will tug on the back of the booster and move to the side slightly. This happens when my child does not have his back completely against the back of the seat ... when he is leaning forward to look out the window or something.
