Introduction

Car seats are a necessity for all moms with young children. You’ll need one as soon as you take your baby home from the hospital, right up until your child is the right size for a booster seat, and then until they fit the actual car seat well.

Thousands of children are injured in car accidents per year, and this number would be significantly reduced if all parents were to choose the right car seat for their child.

Unfortunately, car seats come in various shapes and sizes, and it can be difficult trying to find out which one fits your child the best.

Keep reading for our review of the Evenflo Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat, and we’ve included a list of the features and the pros and cons for good measure.

Pros

  • Great price
  • Tested at approx 2x the federal crash test standard (so it’s extra safe!)
  • Perfect for those who travel as it’s lightweight and easy to carry

Cons

  • Some moms complain about a sharp ridge of plastic above the strap release that can hurt your hand

Evenflo Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat Product Review

Before we delve into the review, let’s give you a little background on the company behind this top-rated car seat – Evenflo.

Evenflo has been a trusted source of quality-built child safety systems for just under 100 years, priding themselves on being a partner to parents.

They sell all sorts of child-care products, from car seats to high chairs and strollers – and parents highly rate them.

The specs of the seat:

  • Minimum weight = 5 pounds
  • Maximum weight = 40 pounds
  • Gender = multi sex
  • Harness type = 5pt
  • 18.5 x 22 x 25.5 inches
  • Weight of set = 9.29 pounds

Like many of Evenflo’s products, this car seat comes in a variety of colors:

  • Abigail (bright pink and black)
  • Azure Coast (blue and black)
  • Jupiter (red and black)
  • Neptune (light blue and black)
  • Pink Mums (pink floral and black)
  • Saturn (grey and black)
  • Venus (fuchsia and black)

Safety

When purchasing a car seat, safety should be your number one concern. Evenflo has definitely prioritized safety when manufacturing this seat, and it’s been tested accordingly.

The seat was side-impact tested, and the results confirmed that it meets all applicable safety standards and Evenflo’s own standards.

The structural integrity of the Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat has tested thoroughly at levels twice the federal crash test standard, rendering it extremely safe if you’re unfortunate enough to be involved in a car crash.

The energy-absorbing foam liner that this seat features provides extra safety as well as making the seat extremely comfortable.

Comfort

If your child is uncomfortable, you’re certain to know about it – and the last thing you need while you’re trying to concentrate on the road is screaming from the back seat.

Luckily, this seat is sure to send your child to sleep due to the high levels of comfort it provides. The integrated body cushion adds comfort to your baby’s car journey, and the comfort doesn’t stop there – you can add a removable head pillow as your child grows.

For a better fit, the seat features multiple shoulder harness positions – but your child must be at least two years of age to fit these properly.

The harness adjustment and buckle release are super easy to operate, allowing fast and efficient adjusting.

Cleaning

Nothing can stop the mess that our kids can make – the only way to stop ourselves from losing our minds is by making sure everything is easily washable. Luckily, this car seat is pretty easy to keep clean.

Any metals and plastics and the harness can be wiped clean with mild soap and water and dried with a soft cloth.

The seat pad is machine washable (yay!) – just make sure that it’s on a cold wash and a delicate cycle. It can also be tumble dried for 10-15 mins on low heat.

Summary

It’s no secret that Evenflo is one of the best brands for baby equipment, and the Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat definitely lives up to our expectations.

It’s one of the cheaper options available from Evenflo, but you won’t be able to tell it’s a budget-friendly option judging from the high-quality and multiple safety features.
