I bought this because it was small, lightweight, easy to carry, & because it didn't have the drink holders to add to the bulk & size. It's specifically meant for traveling, so that I can easily carry it from taxi or Uber to wherever we go. It's super cute & colorful (not tacky like some other girly boosters) & I like that the cover completely covers the top & sides. It's removable & can be washed - though I haven't tried that yet. Best of all is the price! It's lightly padded, so I'm not sure how comfortable it will be for long rides but for short trips around town it will do fine. My 8 year old loves it! Kmart has the BEST prices & selection on car seats! I sure wish there was still a Kmart near me, but even with paying shipping this was still a better value than other big box stores.
