Baby Trend: TrendZ Fastback 3-in-1 Car Seat


Baby Trend sent Kenzie their TrendZ FastBack 3-in-1 Car Seat and it is awesome.  It's a hefty steel frame seat (almost 30 lbs in weight) with a lot of great features.  This was much needed for my MIL's car for when she watches Kenzie.


 
We have used the LATCH system before with other car seats but Hubs said the TrendZ was the quickest and easiest install yet.  It features a Rigid Energy Management system (REMS) with Baby Trend's Exclusive rigid LATCH anchors.  After taking the seat out of the box, we sat Kenzie in it to adjust the harness to her shoulders then it was ready to install into my MIL's Honda SUV.  Just click into the car, run the tether strap to the back of the seat, hook then pull to tighten for further seat movement reduction.  It seriously took less than 5 minutes to get it correctly intalled.



Kenzie seemed pretty comfortable in her new seat.  There is a three position recline but we kept Kenzie upright which I believe she prefers.  There is a three-position head support with thick layers of EPS foam provided excellent protection from MIL's driving haha.  The soft body insert is perfect for Kenzie because she is on the smaller side of this car seat's capacity.  The seat, of course, features the 5 point harness which is easy to buckle into.  The harness buckle also has two positions for which your growing child can be accomodated.  


I really like the cupholder and media holders.  It's a necessity when you have a "needy" tot who needs to take along certain toys and drinks/snacks.  Having them on both sides of the seat allows for easy access by your child by himself/herself.  



The seat cover is removable and machine washable!  This is great because we all know that car seats get grimy especially when your child is eating in the car.   



The TrendZ Fastback is called the 3-in-1 Car Seat because of the three stages:

Stage 1: Weight 22-70 lbs Height 28.5" -52"
Stage 2: Weight 30-100 lbs Height 38"-57"
Stage 3: Weight 40-120 lbs Height 42"-57"


Kenzie is currently at Stage 1 being approximately 25 lbs and 30 some odd inches?  We haven't been to the doctor lately so I'm guessing on the height.  This is a great car seat to purchase after the infant carrier because it will take you through many years! 

Baby Trend offers so many baby products ranging from infant car seats, strollers, high chairs, bouncers and much more! 


Buy ItYou can purchase the TrendZ Fastback 3-in-1 Car Seat for $199.99.

  3. She looks quite comfortable and I LOVE the "media" holder! I'm searching for my LO's next car seat even though he will be in his current car seat for a while longer. I really like the features and that the latch system seems easier. Hubby took a while figuring out our current seat and the latch...

  7. I have two of these seats, and when i say they are sturdy, there's no disputing that. It is wellbuilt, and easy to put in. By no means is it light, but secures the children really well. Love the cup holder and the game holder. Snug fit, and padded comfortably.
