The Evenflo Big Kid LX 2-in-1 is a reliable, forward-facing option when your child is ready to start riding in your car using the vehicle’s seat belt.
As your little one grows, this model can be transitioned easily from a high-back booster to a no-back one, and its six offered height positions ensure the proper fit over time. It can be adjusted easily with just one hand, and its integrated belt guide helps keep the shoulder belt securely in place.
This American-made booster has been rollover and side-impact tested, and it meets or exceeds industry standards for safety. It’s light in weight and a cinch to move from one vehicle to another, and its padding can be removed and placed in the washing machine, when needed.
Overview of Evenflo Big Kid LX
The Big Kid LX provides safety for little ones between 40 and 57 inches tall and between 40 and 110 pounds in weight.

The high-back setting incorporates an integrated belt guide to keep the shoulder belt securely in place at all times.

Evenflo Big Kid LX All-in-One Features
Ease of Use
Comfort and Convenience
The Evenflo Big Kid LX is an affordable and reliable choice when your child is ready for a booster, and its two-in-one design delivers a lot of bang for your buck. Changing it from a high-back booster to a no-back one is a relatively quick and painless process. The built-in belt guides help ensure the shoulder belt remains in the proper position, and you can adjust the height position with just one hand, as needed. It’s important to note that this model does not come with LATCH connectors, so the only way it can be installed is through your vehicle’s seat belt.
Whether your youngster is partial to a water bottle or a juice box, it should fit nicely in the cup holders, since the elastic straps can accommodate containers of different sizes and shapes. The seat pad can be machine-washed in cold water on the delicate cycle and, unlike the fabric of many others, it is safe for placement in the dryer on low heat for up to 15 minutes. This model comes with a 90-day warranty that covers any defects in material or workmanship.
Ease of Installation
Who is the Evenflo Big Kid LX suitable for?
This booster seat can be used safely by kids four years and older, who weigh between 40 and 110 pounds and stand between 40 and 57 inches tall. Its slim build allows you to install three in a row in many cars’ back seats, making it a viable option for families with multiple children in need of car seats. It’s a good choice for parents who would rather not have to buy a second car seat when it’s time to transition from a high-back booster to one with no back.

Evenflo Big Kid LX 2-in-1 vs. Graco TurboBooster
Both the Evenflo Big Kid LX 2-in-1 and the Graco TurboBooster are designed to be used in high-back and no-back modes, and can support kids of up to 110 and 100 pounds, respectively. Complying with industry standards, both require a child to be at least 40 pounds in weight before using this booster. Both can accommodate youngsters of up to 57 inches in height. Both models are equipped with energy-absorbing foam to help lessen the impact felt by a child in the event of an impact. Neither of these options come with LATCH connectors.
While the two models are very similar, there are some minor differences, which include the cup holders: The ones with the Graco model are retractable and more sturdily built, in comparison to the Evenflo ones that consist of stationary compartments surrounded by an elastic band. You’ll also find height-adjustable armrests on the TurboBooster. These components might make it the more attractive offering when it comes to comfort and convenience – especially considering the TurboBooster is a bit less expensive. Ultimately, when it comes to safety, the two have a lot in common, having been subjected to rigorous crash tests and ones that involve extreme temperatures.
