Does anyone have this seat?

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Evenflo-Tr...-Ella/19414717 not the actual color but the seat if you do can you tell me what you think of it,please?

I nanny a 2 yr old right now and she sits in a britax frontier 85 booster seat that I bought and used a few times with my daughter,if I had my choice she'd be rearfacing but her parents switched her at 18 mths.

I'm taking on another 2 yr old (was 2 in Dec) next month I need a seat for her sure I could use one of the parents seats but switching them out daily will be a PITA so I want to buy another seat for my van but don't want to spend over $70-80 for it and I really don't want a Seneca or anything that cheap.
TIA.

I haven't used that seat before but honestly, there is NOTHING wrong with the Scenera. It's a great budget seat! More money doesn't equate more safety, it may just mean more plush. For all we know the Scenera could surpass the more expensive Britax, Recaro, and Diono seats in safety tests. Those aren't released though. What we do know is all seats must pass the same tests.

I have one of those and a scenera, I like the scenera better. They're good seats, but my tall daughter maxed out the height at 26 months and the weight just now at 32 months.

I have one. It's easier to install rear-facing than a scenera, but other than that, really has no advantages over it. Size-wise it doesn't last all that long and I think a better bet would be the safety 1st guide at walmart which is $80.

I have used a Seneca before and did not like it thus my reasons for not wanting another one .
Thanks for the advice so far I greatly appreciate it.

Very short harness height. You'd be way, way better off with the Guide 65.

If you prefer Evenflo to Dorel (Cosco/Safety1st/Eddie Bauer), then you could try the SureRide (about $100).

Another good seat for a good price is the safety first guide 65.
