The Ginocchio family hit another milestone. Our youngest, four-and-a-half-year-old Sloane, delivered a message clear and proud, “Mom, I’m too big for my car seat. I want a big girl booster!” I couldn’t really argue with her. After all, she was growing fast, and it was getting more and more difficult to get her car seat buckles clicked.
I realized in that moment that she had transformed from my sweet baby girl into an active and energetic big kid. Was my initial resistance to abandon her trusty car seat actually my way of trying to slow down time?
Naturally, safety was my first concern. We’d always trusted Britax when it came to car seats, so it made sense to check what boosters they offered for her age and weight. I’d actually viewed their newest models in person at the ABC Kids Expo. It was there that I spotted a full back, 5 point harness booster seat with side impact protection with big pink flowers running down the center of the seat. I knew this model would get the Sloane seal of approval. She was also plenty big enough since the minimum requirement was only two years and 25 lbs, and the features of this seat would easily take us all the way through her car seat days.
One feature I was looking for, in particular, was ease of installation. Between carpooling and the car wash, I often needed to get the seat in and out of the car. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve jammed a knuckle or broken a fingernail trying to install those pesky lower latch connectors in my old car seat. The whole ordeal would leave me a sweaty (and injured) mess! So, what really sold me on the Britax Pinnacle 90 booster seat was their new Click Tight installation technology. You just pop up the lower section of the seat back and pull the seat belt through and buckle. Click the seat closed, and that’s it, you’re done. No lower latch connectors needed, and when I say it’s in rock solid, I mean it!
There were other notable bells and whistles as well, like an integrated steel bar for crash protection and two cup holders. Sloane definitely felt like a big kid in this seat. She’s happy, mom’s happy. Milestone navigated! Thank you, Britax.

This is so wonderful! Thank you!
Darn. The contest isn’t taking entries anymore.
My 3 year old needs this! Thanks for the chance. Good luck to all.
I really could use this. Especially with a new baby the funds for a new one for my older daughter aren’t there right now.
Would love to win this seat for my 3 year old daughter she has a graco nautilus 3 in 1 that I got cheap off craigslist used while back and it will be expiring in December but I would have wait till tax time to get a new seat so keeping my fingers crossed to win this for her I love that it goes harnessed to 90 pounds and how easy it looks to strap into a vehicle
My daughter needs a new seat shes almost 5 and this is what Im looking for. Really hope to win.
My 4 year old son is itching to get into a booster
wish my grandson’s mother would use the Britax I bought for her car three years ago that goes to 70 lbs. Instead, I pray for his safety because she lets him buckle himself into a cheap tiny booster. Perhaps if I could give her a safe Frontier 90 ” big boy” seat for a 4-year-old that I won, she would use it and not consider me a person who interferes with her safety decisions. I just want him safe in Britax!
This would be a blessing to win! We have been looking for a new carseat for our littlest guy for awhile now but haven’t settled on one – We want to have it before we do traveling at the end of the year, so his safety and comfort are optimal!
This would be great to win! :)
Would love this!! My daughter could use this.
It would be awesome to win one of these great seats
I would love to win this for my granddaughter!!!
Would love to win this for my son. I have a frontier 90 with click connect. Love the click connect feature it gives me peace of mind when leaving it for daycare field trips that it will be buckled tight. Would love the pinnacle 90 for my husbands car.
Would love this for my daughter…she will be 5 in January and she is still within the limits of her current seat we have been thinking about moving her to a high back booster.this would be perfect!
My son needs one. Going back and gorth between two cars is difficult, thus resorting to cheap booster that I am not comfortable with.
My daughter is almost 4 1/2, and while she still fits her existing seat weight-wise, she is getting too tall. Would love to win this one!
I love these new Britax seats and I know my son would love to feel like a big boy in a bigger kid seat. :)
Would love to win this, our son is just getting ready to transition into a booster seat
Already have a Britax car seat and would love this booster for my daughters!!!
Already have a Britax car seat and would love this booster for my grandson!
This would be perfect for my granddaughter who just turned 4 years old
Would love to win….my son really needs a booster seat!!!
Just moved our youngest out of her Marathon into brother’s Regance but it is not fitting in the truck safely. Of course she wants one like her sister’s pink Fronteir 85. This would be perfect for her. She is only 50lbs so we plan on keeping her safe as long as possible.
