Booster seats — not the most exciting must-have for avid shoppers. Clek has changed all that with their funky and highly functional booster seats. These seats are incredibly sturdy and well-made. It’s easy to employ the latch system and to disengage it when you’re lucky enough to have a carpool option.
The one I love best is the limited edition Paul Frank model, and not just because my son is named Julius (just like that iconic monkey). It’s bright red and adds a little punch to sticky, goldfish-dusted, happy meal toy cluttered back seat of my car. They also have a camouflage version ($90) which is apparently a favorite in the Brangelina minivan. (or is it a latch-enabled stretch limo?) and currently, the powder blue version is available for $40 at babyuniverse.com. You can also purchase covers for the seat for a new look.
