Give Your “Big Kid” A Boost Today with Win It Wednesday

Give your “big kid” a boost today!  For this week’s Win It Wednesday, we’re giving away a Highback TurboBooster (in Baldwin fashion) to two lucky winners!

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that school-aged children ride in belt positioning booster seats until at least age 8 or until the vehicle seat belt fits correctly, as described by the AAP and NHTSA. And, the Graco Highback TurboBooster is the seat that “big kids” pick as often as parents. Kids love cool added features such as hide-away cup holders and design features geared toward “big kids,” like height-adjustable head support and padded, height-adjustable armrests. This seat is packed with great safety features parents really appreciate, including EPS (energy absorbing foam) and open-loop belt guides to help ensure property seat belt positioning. When your child is ready, it easily converts to a backless booster. Of course, it’s rigorously crash-tested to meet or exceed all U.S. safety standards. The Baldwin™ fashion boasts a subtle swirled grey pattern, accented with pops of red.

Please note: It’s important that your child meet the minimum weight (30 lbs.) AND height (38”) requirements before riding in the Highback TurboBooster. Graco fully supports the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendation to keep children harnessed as long as possible, while working to provide parents safe options for when their children have outgrown their harness’ height and weight requirements.

Enter to win by leaving a comment below, telling us why your “big kid” needs a boost. You have until 10 a.m. EST tomorrow, and we will announce a winner later on Thursday. Good luck!

    Our son will be ready for a high back booster soon, and our daughter is ready to take over his convertible seat. We love Graco!

    I would love to win this! I would give it to my mom and dad so they could use it for my nephew. He has almost at the point where he needs a booster and they can’t afford to get a new one as they took on my niece and nephew when not expected. Hope I win! Would be appreciated!

  4. Michael Carter March 6, 2013 at 6:42 pm #

    We are adopting my niece and this would be perfect for her.

  5. Roxanne Williamson March 6, 2013 at 6:46 pm #

    My granddaughter will be driven back to Kansas City from San Diego when her dad deploys in a car seat that is a little snug for her. This would be such a blessing.

    Because my big kid is outgrowing his 5pt harness

  7. Tiffany Jones March 6, 2013 at 6:48 pm #

    Graco is our go to brand for gear. What would be better than to add a Graco booster to our gear for our daughter to transition into.

  8. Lisa Hanson March 6, 2013 at 6:50 pm #

    My daughter’s 3rd birthday is coming up and this would be a great present! :) She fits in those exact requirements!

  9. Rivkah T March 6, 2013 at 6:51 pm #

    My big lid needs a boost because we’re working on getting someone else to be added to our family who will need that car seat. You know.

  10. Joey Carnes March 6, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

    I have TWO kids currently in TurboBoosters (the best highback booster ever!) We LOVE them, but after daily use for years, they are needing replacement. A new one would hep so much! Thanks for this great giveaway.

  11. Lori Lawrence March 6, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

    My son definitely needs this!!! He’s within a 3 pounds of outgrowing his current car seat and the cup holders would be a great added feature….he wouldn’t be all the time saying “Here Momma!!!!”

  12. Misty S March 6, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

    This would be wonderful to win. My little guy is out growing the one he has.

  13. Danielle L March 6, 2013 at 6:56 pm #

    I would love to have this for my little guy. Graco makes awesome products

  14. Shantel Davis March 6, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

    My big kid needs a boost because he is outgrowing his current carseat! He would really love to be confortable while running errands with mommy!!

  15. Beth Plachetka March 6, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

    I would love this for my son!!!

  16. Jodi J March 6, 2013 at 7:10 pm #

    My big boy is going to Kindergarten in the fall – it’d be great to have a lightweight booster seat for him to use that would be easy to move from one car to another when needed.

  17. lisa theobald March 6, 2013 at 7:11 pm #

    Time for my child to get out of her toddler seat and into a booster

  18. Toni B March 6, 2013 at 7:12 pm #

    My little one has very long legs and this would be perfect to make him much more comfortable. Thank you!

  19. Heather Wilson March 6, 2013 at 7:14 pm #

    My daughter just turned four and would really love this. Her carseat will expire soon and we will need something to replace it.

  20. Kelly Buchanan March 6, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

    My 4 year old daughter, Kenzie, needs a boost so she can keep on eye on her brand new baby sister, Charlee, as she rides beside her in the back seat. Kenzie is so excited to be a big sister and having a new special car seat to show her how important a big sister is would be so exciting, and something special just for her!

  21. Alissa Kemp March 6, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

    I know my curious little son Kolby would love to gaze out tr window and see so many new things!! Plus, he’s about to be an older brother so I’m sure he’d happily pass down his carseat :)

  22. Marissa March 6, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    My little, big 2 year old needs a major boost because she’s 1) a shortie for her age group 2) she needs a better quality car seat 3) she and mommy love Graco products 4) she needs a sippy cup holder, 5) this summer we will be taking a few long road trips. We really hope today is our lucky Wednesday! Thanks Graco!

    Love, mommy Marissa & little lady Maliya

  23. Heather S. March 6, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

    My daughter is at the point where it is time for a booster seat. This Graco one would be perfect!!

  24. Kris Garvey March 6, 2013 at 7:29 pm #

    My son is close to the weight limit for this seat, and is growing tall like Daddy so he’ll probably need it sooner than later! My mom watches him during the week while we’re at work, so she could really use this for her car! Thanks!

  26. Jennifer L. March 6, 2013 at 7:34 pm #

    Great timing! My daughter just discovered last night at dance class that her best friend uses a booster instead of a “baby seat”, so now she wants one too!

  27. Christine g March 6, 2013 at 7:36 pm #

    My 4 year old needs a new one to replace the very old car seat she is using.

  28. Annette March 6, 2013 at 7:46 pm #

    My grandson wishes he didn’t need a boost, but I think this super-stylish one would make him look forward to using it.

  29. Andrea M March 6, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    We just found out that we’re expecting another little one in November so we’ll need to move our, by then, 5 year old to a booster!

  30. COURTNEY BENOIT March 6, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

    I am becoming a full-time nanny to my nephew and could really use this seat!

  31. Jamie W. March 6, 2013 at 7:50 pm #

    My little would need one soon. We would be nice to win one than to purchase it.

  32. Maria B March 6, 2013 at 7:51 pm #

    My little man will be out growing his seat soon and his little sister will be getting into his so he’ll need the booster :)

  33. Valerie L March 6, 2013 at 7:51 pm #

    He’s just at the age when you are starting to be part of the family and he needs a lift to be able to participate and enjoy everything around him

  34. Jessie March 6, 2013 at 7:58 pm #

    Time for us to graduate up to the next size!

  35. Marissa March 6, 2013 at 7:58 pm #

    My daughter needs a new booster because she is outgrowing her carseat that she has had for a long time now… And our funds are limited do to moving and still trying to get settled into jobs.

  36. Toni March 6, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

    She is getting too big For her car seat! Special needs and needs a safe booster

  37. Miranda March 6, 2013 at 8:03 pm #

    My big “little” almost 8 year old needs a boost because her little bro will need her convertible but she’s too small (in my opinion) to go with just a belt! She’s only 45# so I’ld love to keep her in a car seat!

  38. Nicole G. March 6, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    My “big kid” needs this so he can ride safely in his grandparents’ car withough having to remember to leave the one from my car.

  39. Rhonda Grisham March 6, 2013 at 8:08 pm #

    My grandson needs a boost because it’s time for him to move into a “big boy” car seat.

  40. Holly Rock March 6, 2013 at 8:14 pm #

    Wonder if I’ll be one of the lucky winners! could totally use one of these as my daughter is just at the height limit for her 5pt harness!

  41. Nicole Geertsma March 6, 2013 at 8:15 pm #

    Would love to have to waiting for the little guy when he is big enough.

    My son is very tall for his age, so he outgrows carseats quickly, and we will be ready to boost him soon! I would love this!

  44. anne dixon March 6, 2013 at 8:32 pm #

    my little man is ready for the transition! I’d love a safe new seat for years to come!
