When it comes to providing your child with the most reliable and complete protection in the event of a collision, regular booster seats are out and high-backed ones are the new normal. These models have been tested against rigorous standards. Many have proven to be effective in rollovers and accidents that caused a car to be totaled. They're essential for parents who chauffeur young passengers. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 27, 2018:

We were uncompromising when it came to selecting models that would offer your child the utmost safety during the worst of collisions. We also understood that kids will spend a lot of time in these booster seats, so we looked for features young passengers would appreciate, like places to keep their toys and a fun design. The end result is a list that we think parents and children will be on board with.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
