We have been moving and shaking here at Graco with lots of new products. I am happy to announce our newest car seat innovation, the Argos 70, 3-in-1 harnessed booster seat. The Graco Argos 70 is a forward-facing only, harnessed booster seat that converts from a harnessed car seat (20-70 lbs) to a high back belt-positioning booster (30-100 lbs), then finally to a backless belt-positioning booster (40-120 lbs).
To start, this car seat is steel-reinforced & Safe Seat Engineered (which means it has gone through many different types of testing, such as Side Impact Testing, extreme weather testing, and other important safety reviews).
There are many features about this product that you will love. First, there are higher weight limits for two of the modes of use. In the harnessed booster mode, your child can use the harness up to 70 lbs. When you use Argos 70 as a backless booster, the seat holds a child up to 120 lbs (which helps support the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation that children ride in a booster seat until they are 4’9″). Must-have features like the front adjust harness, integrated cup holder, and side storage compartment are also an added plus to this seat.
But, my favorite feature by far is the Simply Safe Adjust harness system.
This harness system allows you to quickly adjust the harness height & head rest at the same time and with one hand–no need to re-thread the harness! This car seat is great for car-pooling since you can easily and safely adjust the harness height without un-installing the seat. I was able to easily adjust the harness height and head rest so my little ones could check out the newest car seat.
My daughter, “PP,” is shown in the picture here. She is 50 lbs and she fit in this seat really well (Argos 70 comes with a toddler insert for even more cushioning if you’re using the seat with a smaller child).
