We have included third party products to help you navigate and enjoy life’s biggest moments. Purchases made through links on this page may earn us a commission.

If your child has outgrown the height and weight limit on your car seat—but the seat belt strap in the car doesn’t seem to be fitting quite right or snug enough—you’re in need of a booster. Allow us to introduce the Evenflo Spectrum, which combines advanced safety tests, a convertible design and a simple install to make it a favorite among parents and kids alike.

What we love

  • The high-back design offers nine different headrest heights—but can also be removed entirely for a backless design (ideal for big kids who prefer a more “discreet” seat)
  • Beyond federal safety regulations, the Spectrum is also tested for rollover safety
  • Two cup holders and side pouches provide plenty of compartments for snacks and toys (and the entire cover is machine washable in case of any spills or messes)
  • From 40 pounds to 110 pounds, this seat is just right from toddlerhood through the pre-teen years


Buying what feels like yet another car seat doesn’t have to be a huge investment; Evenflo safely protects for less.
