What Parents Said About it..
- Easy to adjust headrest is a great improvement on other models
- Easy to install
- Seat pad is really comfy, well-cushioned and padding is thicker than on other seats
- Makes long trips easier
- Slide guard is a great idea although some children don’t like having a strap between the legs
- It’s much taller than previous models supplying plenty of room for growth
- The headrest provides excellent padded support when child is sleeping
- It is easy to wipe up spillages from the fabric
- Loved the fact that this Parkway model can become a Backless Booster as well
What Some Parents Didn’t Like
- The armrests appear to be too small and seem too low
- Too large to fit 3 across as advertised on some cars
The Parkway SG booster was given the thumbs up by many parents who owned it. There were also a couple of reviews where parents stated that it had saved their child from serious injuries in crashes.
There were no issues with this model, just a niggling problem with the armrests being a little small and low, and a few parents who doubted that you could fit 3 seats in the back of their cars.
This model is therefore recommended as a good purchase and is a worthy contender if you are looking to move your child into a booster.
