Big Kids & Boosters

Pop quiz: How long will your school-age child need to stay in a booster seat? The answer may surprise you.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for their car seat should use a belt-positioning booster seat until the vehicle seat belt fits properly, typically when they have reached 4 feet 9 inches in height and are between 8 and 12 years of age.

“Seats belts are made for adults,” the AAP explains. “Boosters are designed to raise your child so the seat belt fits properly.”

Given its critical role, it’s important to find a booster that will fit your child for years to come.

Designed for children 40 to 120 pounds (or up to 57 inches), our new Viaggio HBB 120 offers all the celebrated safety and design of our beloved Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat and Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible, in a booster.

The Viaggio HBB 120 provides total Side Impact Protection that exceeds the most stringent tests in the world. Plus, energy-absorbing Expanded Poly Styrene foam in the head panel protects the child’s head from impact forces.

LATCH connectors provide additional stability and keep the booster seat in place when not in use. Plus, the innovative Viaggio HBB 120 features a six-position head panel that can be adjusted even with your little one in the seat, allowing for the best possible fit for a growing child.

As an added bonus, the Viaggio HBB 120 is pretty stylish too. In addition to a modern design, plush fabrics and convenient accessories like dual cup holders, the Viaggio HBB 120 comes in some pretty cool big-kid-friendly color options, including the new, loved-by-little-girls-everywhere Fucsia (pink), as well as Crystal Black, Crystal Red, Crystal Beige and Licorice.
