Parents – if you see something for sale online that claims to be a “child safety seat” or “booster” or “car seat,” but it comes from a manufacturer that you have never heard of and it doesn’t say that it meets federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS 213), please be suspicious and do some research. A dead giveaway on this product is its “designed as FF/booster for a 9 or 10 month old,” in the description. **By law in NC, a child cannot be FF at that age.** Please don’t be misled into thinking these are a safe alternative to car seats or booster seats that meet FMVSS 213 standards.
