I don’t know much about booster seats. Sure, my big kid uses a booster seat but it doesn’t mean I know a lot about the different brands or types. Given how little we know about this topic, this post isn’t about the pros or cons but it is about bringing awareness to some of the options that are out there that you may not be aware of.
Case in point: did you know Clek Ozzi booster seats exist?
I certainly didn’t.
Product Review: What is a Clek Ozzi booster seat?
I don’t take any credit for this Clek Ozzi booster seat discovery. When it was time for our big kid to switch into a booster seat, it was the hubby that did the research and came across the Clek Ozzi booster seat.
The main selling feature?
Unlike many of the other booster seats that are out in the market, the Clek Ozzi booster seat has the Clek UAS (Universal Anchorage System) that clicks onto the UAS anchors available in many cars from 2001 onwards. If your car doesn’t have the UAS anchors, you can still use the Clek booster unlatched but we loved the additional security and stability of having it latched on to the UAS anchors. That was the biggest selling feature, for us, for getting the Clek Ozzi booster seat.
Product Review: What else can you tell me about the Clek Ozzi booster seat?
Like I said, I’m not an expert on booster seats but I can tell you a few more things that I learned about the Clek Ozzi booster seat. (if you’re even remotely interested in getting one, I’d highly recommend you visit their website. I’ve included the links at the end of this post).
Now, I never even considered this element when we were getting a booster seat but the folks at Clek did. As it turns out, the Clek Ozzi booster seat comes with a ‘Comfort-cube’ construction so that your child gets to sit on a seat that is as comfortable as the regular cushion in your car. In fact, they even built it much like the actual seat of your car.
Ever try sitting on a hard surface for an extended period of time? Before you know it, your butt is numb and your legs get all tingly and weird. Now imagine how your child would feel sitting on that kind of surface when you go for your next long car ride? I envision cranky children with a load of complaints.
Gosh, the folks at Clek are smart. Question is: does any of this really work?
Product Review: is the Clek Ozzi booster seat any good?
At the time of this post, we’ve used the Clek Ozzi booster seat a number of times and we can safely say that it is incredibly easy to use. It takes next to no effort finding the car’s UAS system and then it’s just a matter of a quick shove and the Clek Ozzi booster seat is in place. It makes a noticeable ‘click’ sound which affirms that it’s been securely latched on to the car’s UAS system.
My big kid loves her Clek Ozzi booster seat. She says it’s comfortable and there’s plenty of room. It doesn’t come with a cup holder but honestly, who needs it? I’m actually not a big fan of putting things into the cup holders because whatever you put in is liable to fly out during a sudden brake.
Am I going to tell you to go out and buy the Clek Ozzi booster seat? Nope. That’s not the purpose of this product review. As an informed consumer, I think this is strictly a decision you’ll need to make based on the research you do and the options you have available where you live. What works for my family may not work for yours.
My hope for this product review on the Clek Ozzi booster seat is to let you all know that other options are available beyond what you may be used to seeing. Honestly, before the hubby did his research and found the Clek Ozzi booster seat, we didn’t even think you could latch a booster seat to the car’s UAS system. That, in and of itself, is one of the cooler discoveries we’ve made as parents.
So, now that you know, you have more options to ponder over and that is the best part of being an informed consumer.
