Levi's New Big Boy Car Seat - Evenflo Symphony DLX

I received the Evenflo Symphony DLX Convertible Car Seat for review purposes but all opinions are my own. This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Evenflo and Latina Bloggers Connect.

Mr. Levi's got a new big boy car seat. A spiffy one I might add. The infant car seat he was in before was just a tad bit small for him and we were thinking about buying him a new one when we received this one to review. Talk about perfect timing! My first impression when I opened the box and saw the seat was "VERY NICE!" it looks so comfy and the fabric looks very high end. 

Evenflo is taking safety and comfort to the next level with the launch of Platinum Protection Series car seats which feature NASA-developed Outlast™ Performance Fabrics. Fancy! Evenflo believes a peaceful ride is a safe ride. Their new Innovative features are based on consumer insight – meeting the real safety, comfort and convenience needs of it's customers.

-Evenflo Symphony LX All-in-one Car Seat
-Evenflo SecureKid™ DLX Harness Booster seat
-Evenflo Triumph™ LX Convertible Car Seat
Levi has been riding in his new seat for a week now and he's been so comfy in it. Let's break it down shall we? Let's go over the PROS + CONS of this car seat so that it helps those of you who are in the market for this type of car seat. 

PROS (my favorite features)

FABRIC
The fabric not only looks nice + modern it has a purpose! The Temperature regulating fabric in the padding of the seats are designed to keep babies and toddlers comfortable during hot or cold weather. That is perfect for us Texas folks! There's nothing worse than getting into your car and sitting on a hot seat. This fabric balances a child’s body temperature by actively absorbing and storing hot and cold temperatures and releasing as needed. It also reduces perspiration so the child stays drier and more comfortable, and mom can focus her attention on the road instead of an upset baby. 

BUCKLE POCKETS
These seats also feature innovative Buckle Pockets as another safety and convenience benefit. The buckle pockets allows moms to tuck the buckle tongues away which protects kids from hot buckle burns and also makes it easier and safer to get a child in and out of the seats. Another awesome feature for those of us Texans. Nobody wants burns from hot belt buckles! Especially not your littles. 

EASY INSTALLATION
Advanced LATCH technology makes it easy for a secure installation:  Just Click, Click, Push for super-fast, super-snug installation in less than 60 seconds (Symphony DLX and SecureKid DLX). 

CONS

SIZE
This is a rather large seat. I wouldn't have a problem with this except we have three kiddos so we have three car seats side by side. They all fit together in the back seat but a bit snug. The car seat is quite bulky and makes it hard when installing next to other car seats only because of it's size. It's not a problem for those who don't have multiple car seats. That is my ONLY complaint.
Overall we are VERY happy with our new seat! Levi falls asleep in it (as you can see) and seems so comfy. The Evenflo Symphony DLX Convertible Car Seat is Available online at Babies “R” Us beginning in March; and at stores nationwide starting in April. I will be sharing another post with more info on this car seat and maybe a video (if Levi is in the mood) for those of you who would like more info about this specific car seat. So make sure to check that out!
