Diono’s Olympia Convertible Plus Booster Car Seat is a perfect blend of safety, comfort, and stylish design. The Safestop harness distributes the force of braking equally across the body rather than concentrating it upon a single point, while the lower height of the Olympia has been shown to provide greater security and safety to children in the event of a crash.
The full steel frame of the Olympia is provided further stability with aluminum, while the process of loading and securing the car seat into a car is made easy with the company’s SuperLATCH system. The small footprint of the Olympia means that other passengers will not feel cramped, while the Olympia can be folded up when not in use to provide further space. The Olympia has been designed to keep the child’s comfort in mind as well; there is considerable leg support given by the cut of the seat’s bottom while the foam used in the seat deftly blends comfort and security without sacrificing either.
The convertible aspect of the car seat ensures that the device will grow with the child through their earliest years. The Olympia is graded by the New Car Assessment Program to safely protect children from 5 to 45 pounds in the rear-facing position and will maintain its functionality as a booster seat at weights up to 110 pounds.
The price point of the Olympia is on par with other companies’ car seat offerings; the value of the Olympia is considerably greater due to the conversion that one can do to the seat as the child becomes older. The durable build quality of the Olympia means that it can be transferred between cars, put through the rigors of day to day transport and remain functional and safe. The company assures that the Olympia Convertible Plus Booster Car Seat will remain in peak condition for 12 years, which will make the car seat the only one that a family need purchase for their child. We were particularly happy with the washable aspect of the Olympia seat; individuals can put the cover in the wash to keep things clean and aesthetically pleasing.
The Olympia can be purchased for $200-250 at a wide variety of retailers, including Amazon, Babies R’Us, and Kohls. Diono’s products are available the Diono.us web portal contains a wealth of information about the Olympia and the company’s other car seats.
