BoostAPak Booster Car Seat with #giveaway (it looks and travels like a backpack!)

Disclosure: A product was received to help facilitate this post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


One Step Ahead is amazing. Honest to goodness, downright amazing, when it comes to product quality and ingenuity. They take traditional favorites and useful products and turn them into awesome items that are going to make you happy for a long time to come. Later this week I have an item for them to giveaway that is going to blow you away if you have a little one in the house. Today I have a Booster Car Seat that is unique, useful, and innovative in its own right.

BoostAPak Booster Car Seat
Now you can have a booster wherever you go!
It looks like a backpack, right? But this is no backpack... though it does have ample storage space.

Inside storage compartment, not using the zipper pouch.
Since I have brought up the storage space, let's go there first. On the bottom part of the booster seat, underneath a hard shell (with padding on top for your child's sitting comfort) is a zipped storage space.You can put items on top of the zipper pouch. You can see that are in the picture above.

Storage section using the protective zipper pouch. You can utilize both at the same time.
The net on the left is a handy pouch for additional storage.
You can also put things underneath the zipper pouch. Or...if you wanted, you could utilize both at the same time. There is also a large mesh storage space on the inside lid. You can see that in the picture above as well.

This is the flap lifted (it secures with velcro). Under it are the chair sides that fold down.

Here you can see the sides in their standing position.

Getting them opened and closed is a piece of cake. Simply push the big red button.
Now on to how to carry the booster. It comes in a handy backpack form. The sturdy sides fold in and out with the push of a button.

The straps are padded, making it easy for the kids to carry.
The straps are adjustable and have a nice, thick padding on them. The bag is light to begin with, so it's not too heavy, but when you add items to the storage it can take on some weight. The padding makes it so much nicer to carry.

This clilp slides into the correct position for your child,
keeping the shoulder belt in the proper place.
The seat itself is safety approved for your vehicle.It also has a handy clip on it, to keep the shoulder belt in its proper place on your child (so it doesn't rest in a place that is uncomfortable or unsafe).

The seat is 15 1/2"L x 14" W x 6 1/2" H. It is for children ages 4 and up, who are between 40-80 lbs and 43"-52" tall. It has a hand washable cover that removes easily for cleaning.

There are so many uses for this booster. The storage allows kids to pack for overnight stays, travel, or just to have items with them in the car. The backpack straps make it so they can carry it themselves. And the seat makes it so they're safe, no matter who's car they're in.

You can learn more about this BoostAPack Booster Car Seat by visiting the One Step Ahead website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

One lucky winner gets one to call their own, courtesy of One Step Ahead. US entrants only.

I didn't know that there are safety step stools specifically made for children. What a great thing to have around the house.

Ashley @Irishred02 said...

That is a really cool concept and perfect for if the kid is having someone else pick them up at school

DeDa Studios said...

Very cute car seat... Davey still needs a car seat - he is so small.

Sandee said...

Well, this is brilliant. Brilliant.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

That is such a cool idea! I love that the car seat is so portable and the kids can actually carry things in it.

MJ L. commenting for Mommyhastowork said...

Coolest booster ever and perfect for traveling!! Thanks for posting!

Christy Maurer said...

This is such an ingenious idea! It is so bulky to take actual booster seats places...like to grandma's house! This is perfect.

bxcrochet said...

That is so cool! My nephew often travels with us and this would be perfect.

This is such a great idea! My boy is still a little small for it, but it would be great on an airplane!

Mama to 5 said...

Wow I have never seen anything like this before. This is perfect for our traveling!

Angie Church said...

love the mystep up stool. Our little man was so short when it was time to potty that he nearly had to climb up on it this would be such a great help for many little ones

Theresa Mahoney said...

How handy is this!? It would definitely help keep those kiddy messes at bay in the car!

Maureen Hitipeuw said...

Oh wow this is super cool and looks really versatile! Good luck to everyone who participate on the giveaway.

Censie Sawyer said...

What a great idea. I have not seen this before.

Laura Funk said...

This is really interesting. Is it certified?

Donna said...

That is a very neat booster. I love the way to travels like a backpack.

Christy Garrett said...

This looks like the perfect travel seat. You can even use it on an air plane. I love that it folds up into a backpack so that your child can help carry it too.

Susan Quackenbush said...

I really wish I would have had something like this when my kids were little! This is a great giveaway! Thank you for sharing! :)

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

Great idea for kids too big for a standard car seat. I love the safety features and its portability. This would be a nice item to have handy in the car.

MikiHope said...

What will they dream up next! Love this one--a booster seat that is also a backpack-can be folded and put into any car your child is going to be in--sounds like a win win to me.

Martin Valenzuela said...

I thought it is really a backpack (though your titles and notes tells the otherwise) haha! This is cool! How I wish I could enter the giveaway raffle but unfortunately it is only open for US entrants only.

Stephanie Pass said...

That is pretty cool! My youngest isn't quite up to the booster seat size just yet, but I love how portable it is. Definitely great for a vacation.

mail4rosey said...

For the car, yes. Not for airplanes (though it does fit in the overhead bin nicely).

mail4rosey said...

That little pig still goes with us everywhere. ;)

Angelic Sinova said...

I love that the BoostAPak Booster Car Seat looks and travels like a backpack! How convenient for parents who are always on the go! Great giveaway <3

Nikki said...

This one is really cool!! I'm sure my son and nephews would love this cool stuff!! I wish I could win this.

Marcie W. said...

I can see this being great while traveling as well as for keeping in a vehicle should an emergency situation arise for any reason. You just can not beat the simplicity factor.

debdenny said...

Now that is just the neatest thing I have seen. I will tell my granddaughter about this.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Perfect for families on the go

Esme Sy said...

This will be perfect for the twins! Especially since I drive them to school without anyone else with us.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Looks very cute, clever, and handy.
Take care, Rosey.

Erinn Sluka said...

I love their potty training products

Dogvills said...

That's a very cute seat. I love that it's easy to bring. I want to win this!

Ann B said...

This is exactly the kind of seat my friend needs for her daughter. I will have to share this with her.

When the Skies Are Gray said...

I saw these but couldn't decide if I wanted to take the risk in using one. I'm very big on car seat safety.

jcupphoo said...

Whoa - this is super cool! We don't have kids yet but if we did, I would definitely want one of these.

Miranda Myrabev said...

Genius, this is such a cool concept indeed I think my nephew would love this booster seat/back pack

Maureen said...

This would have really come in handy years ago when traveling with my son. What a great idea!

Tracey said...

What a smart concept! This is such a handy thing to have for people with small kids.

Chrystal Mahan said...

Oh gosh, that is like the cutest thing every. I wish they had these when kiddo was younger. It would have been a life saver to keep in other folks cars or for traveling.

Crystal said...

When the kids are Student of the Month, the principal takes them out to lunch. It's a huge honor. But with car seat laws being what they are (for good reason, of course), it means the kids have to tote their seats to school. This would make it so much easier!

~*~lilshuga2001~*~ said...

there is a lifetime garauntee on every product!
Thats awesome!!

Mykidsguide said...

That is so cute! The girls don't lie to use their high chair anymore and they prefer the big seats. I will get these boosters for them.

samantha amberstone said...

This is such a brilliant product. especially with part time care takers. like grandparents. its easy to transfer so you never have to lug around big heavy seats while dealing with antsy children

lisa gonzalez said...

i like that it's light enough for my son to carry it around.

MELISASource said...

Oh wow this is a super-cute seat! This would be perfect for my grandchildren!

Amanda Tempel said...

I like there wide variety or products that are available! It seems like they have everything you need for a young toddler, or baby, and it's nice to find a place like that, since I am starting to shop for little things.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

I don't think I have ever seen anything like this! This is so convenient.

Anonymous said...

I love this. Why hasn't anyone made this sooner? I visited the site and I love the kitchen helper. A friend of mine had one and that is another brilliant product.

Franc said...

It's so cool that it's both a booster car seat and a bag. Kids would love this especially its so cute and handy.

Dinner then Dessert said...

We have a travel car seat that was essential on our last trip! It's such a useful invention!

~ Noelle said...

Well isn't that neat? I think this would be great to have for kids that might go with grandparents or other people that don't have car seats in the car at all times.

Dina said...

that is so convenient to have. I love that it carries stuff in the bottom!

Jennifer H. said...

This looks so cool! I think that it would be great for traveling. We are going to be flying soon and it would be a great way to have a booster when we get to our destination. Also love that you can store things in it.

Lalia Frolick said...

VERY neat product! I've never seen anything like it, and it's so convenient. Especially where I live, we switch between public transit and vehicles a lot. It would be so nifty to have something like this as an alternative to lugging around my son's heavy convertible car seat.

Angie Scheie said...

Wow, I haven't seen anything like this! I can only imagine how much easier it makes situations...like airports!

bbrittbrat1398 said...

I would love to use this while traveling. It looks so easy carry around. Brittney House

Peachy @ The Peach Kitchen said...

Awesome giveaway! I love this booster car seat and I'm gonna buy one for my baby.

Brandy Tanner said...

MY youngest is still in a booster seat and this is totally cool. I bet he would feel "cool" using this vs the traditional one I have.

A Martin said...

I like the option to have affordable low payments on purchases.

Christina Aliperti said...

I didn't know this existed till reading this post. My little nieces are starting pre-school soon and I think this would be awesome for when other family members give them a ride home from school.

RICHARD HICKS said...

I like their Fresh N Freeze Reusable Baby Food Containers

Anonymous said...

I love this booster. It is perfect for the busy mom that has to drop off at daycare with someone else picking up.

Jennifer said...

This is just about the coolest thing I've ever seen. I can't believe someone thought up a booster seat that is also a backpack. Very cool.

Michelle Varga said...

This is a really neat booster seat and I haven’t seen this before! This looks really compact and easy to take with you when you’re travelling too!

Krystal Butherus said...

I could see this being useful for me and my son! What a great way to take it with you!

Joanne T Ferguson said...

What a great, innovative concept for a booster seat! I will be sharing your post with friends today and what a generous giveaway!

Mary Madalene said...

I must admit that is the coolest booster seat. My only wish is that my kids where younger again - lol Good luck to everyone who has entered!

Joely Smith said...

I am so SUPER jealous of all the cool and inventive things for babies and kids these days! My kiddos are all grown up now sadly but they are getting to that age of having their own kiddos and I can't wait to purchase things for them like Boostapak!

Lindsay said...

This is really neat for kids who ride the bus! I also checked out the Neatnik Saucer High Chair Cover and Placemat and decided I need one. I worry about germs on high chairs in places we go out to eat. This would help stop baby from getting all those nasty germs!

jcupphoo said...

Ok, we don't have kids yet but this is awesome! I definitely would want to get something like this once we need it.

Terri K said...

This would be great for when my grandson comes to Hawaii to visit!

Nicky J said...

just so you know it's for 4 years + and 40 lbs +

Michelle said...

I really wish this BoostAPak car seat had been around when my daughter was little. I was a little over protective and really worried about her riding in anyone's car seat besides her own.

Lisa Codina said...

Please tell me Canadians can enter?? I want this so badly for my son! ;-)

Nancy said...

Whoa, that is one fancy looking booster-seat! I'm going to enter so I can see if I can win for my 2 little nephews!!

Yona Williams said...

This is pretty smart way to create a multi-functional product for youngsters. I like it because you can get the most for your money.

Ourfamilyworld said...

That is a pretty booster car seat. I need to buy two for my twins.

Deirdre said...

I like the extra long bath mat. You can't find them many other places.

Shaney Vijendranath said...

This is so awesome, I never considered one of these before but now I actually understand the product better.

Ron Leyba said...

Awesome product. Love to have one of this too!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for the question, Lisa. US only for this one. I agree though, it's pretty amazing. So many of their items are versatile and cool like this, I love One Step Ahead!

Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey said...

This sounds like a very useful and innovative product. Kids can take toys (or snacks?) inside of it and could carry it with her. This is very cool!

April Mims said...

This is a really cool product! My daughter is expecting her first baby so we are learning all about car seats. I'll keep this in mind when it's time for a booster seat.

rosemary palmer said...

How cute - I don't have anyone in my life who needs this but will think about for any future gift.

Rebecca Swenor said...

I have to admit I didn't know what this was until I looked at all the pictures. This is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I am so showing my nieces along with my sister this post. Thanks for sharing.

AngelWinner said...

I also like the Kids Trampoline with Handle!

Lisa Ann said...

I like the Li'l Squirt Baby Wading Pool.

Addi Ganley said...

I have to say this is a genius idea. I have 3 small children and sometimes grandparents or aunts and uncles take them out for the day or a weekend. These would be great to stop the switching of booster seats from car to car.

Ken Ohl said...

I love the kids trampoline. thankyou ken pohl19@comcast.net

Marie Moody said...

Well they sure have everything for every season that's for sure. I love that they have things to protect children too.

hhkaufman78 said...

I love that you can carry it around. This will be perfect for airplane trips.

Anonymous said...

I like the Sand Away Beach sheets Rosanne rosans4@comcast.net

AnnaZed said...

They also make a really cool Personalized Waterproof Outdoor Blanket

The baby gates look great--I will be needing those for our new arrival in November!

Lisa Voyce said...

I like the My Step Up Stool.

couponsnsamples said...

I love it...would be perfect for me to keep in my car for the grandbabies

Angela Nichols said...

I love that this turns into a backpack! So neat and convenient.

Charles Bradshaw said...

I would love to have the My Step Up Stool for my grandkids. They need one of those.

Dawn Reid said...

I love that the car seat is so portable

Cynthia Dawson said...

I learned that there is a OSA credit option on paying for your purchases.

Jessica Harlow said...

I really like this! It's so convenient and it's brilliant that it turns into a backpack!

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

This is unbelievably neat! I love how convenient and easy to carry the booster seat is.

Tamara Camera said...

I think the backpack booster is so awesome. My kids have six grandparents and different ones pick them up from school - some with booster seats and some without.
Plus it would be good for air travel when we're renting a car when we land.

RANE said...

Whoa! All that from a backpack? This is a smart idea especially for travelling and for smaller cars with limited space

tina reynolds said...

This is the most clever design I think I have ever saw

Liz Mays said...

That's definitely a winning feature. It makes it even more useful!

Courtney said...

This is brilliant! So many years of traveling and schlepping big bulky car seats. This is beyond genius. I can't wait to see more car seats like this!

Ckrusch said...

Such a cool thing! Perfect for a relative who normally drives your child to places!

Trisha Grimes said...

What a great invention!! I mean that wholeheartedly! We could have used one of these recently when I recently took my nephew to an amusement park. This would also be PERFECT for when my daughter and I travel into the city and need to hop in a cab.

DeDa Studios said...

This is perfect that it takes up very little room. Nice to keep in the Jeep in case I need a seat for a child.
