My son is 3.5 years old. I am so fortunate to have found the Coccoro before he was born. I bought this car seat with the money I got from my baby shower. I have always said it was the best purchase for my first child that I made. I have a mental list of my "best purchases" and this is #1!
Trace, my 3.5 year old, is my first and only child, so when I first bought this car seat, I had difficulty installing it. I read the directions, but installing car seats was a whole new world to me back then. I do, however, have some things I think you could improve on. The foam padding located under the cover broke very easily and did so every time I had to re-install the car seat. Also, the car seat was slick. Even after installing the car seat as tight as anyone possibly could, the car seat had a tendency to slip out of place. It would recline or slip upward. Now, I didn't have a big issue with this, but if I had more kids that had to crawl into the car and constantly touching the back of the seat, it might have slipped out of place a lot more than I would be comfortable with. I'm also wondering how well three car seats across would fit in a back seat. The fabric snagged very easily on my wedding ring. Unfortunately, my son grew out of this car seat around 2.5 years to 3 years old. He was not too heavy, but he was too tall. 36 inches. The shoulder straps could not adjust any higher and the straps were going below his shoulders. It was so disappointing to have to say goodbye to the car seat we both loved.
|You can see a couple of the material snags in this picture.|
|The shoulder pads were too long for his little body at this time. To be safe, they need to be scrunched up or removed in this situation.|
|Unfortunately, most of these colors have been discontinued.|
To add: Combi has eliminated several of the colors that were out when I bought my Keylime colored car seat for my son in 2010. I really miss the Carrot Cake colored car seat that I would've loved to have had for my little one that is due in February 2015. Unfortunately, Combi will also be discontinuing the Keylime color, but they will be bringing in Grape and Cinnamon. The biggest difference in these car seats and the ones of the past is that they don't have that cream color on the infant insert or the white stripe that outlines the bucket of the seat. I HATED the cream/white combination of colors.
