So, our friends (another set!) were just in a car accident.  Everyone is fine but they want to replace the car seat their almost 5 year old is currently in.  He is forward facing (and has been for some time).  He is quite small--- under 38" and relatively thin.

 

They'd like a harness to booster convertible.  He will harness for another couple of years, but will not need a relatively high harness weight (50 lbs, for example, should last him until at least 7). 

 

My initial reaction was the Nautilus.  They would prefer to be able to just pick it up from a local store (like Target).  Any other suggestions/comments?

Graco Nautilus, Graco Argos, Evenflo Maestro and Recaro ProSport are all good combination seats :-)

There's also a new seat at BRU called the Trendz Fast Back that is supposed to be really nice, and has a better booster fit than the Nautilus. Something to think about.

We actually went to Target last night and picked up a Nautilus.  It was even on sale.  Thanks for the input, she was very happy to get it!
