When the Clek Olli booster seat came out, it changed the world a little bit for parents of school-age children. The simplicity and appealing design made it so easy to transport a carload of kids without any arguments about being too old for a car seat.
Now, Clek is kicking it up a notch with the Clek Oobr Booster Seat, an uber version of the Clek Olli. The Oobr has a high back and adjustable headrest which can be removed for travel or an older child. The design is all about comfort, recognizing that it’s hard for kids to sit for a while, and an uncomfortable car seat doesn’t help. The Oobr has significant padding in the seat, and a soft, springy material wrapping the armrests.
The fabric is possibly the most remarkable part of this seat. Clek chose to use Cryptonite material, a soft, nubbly fabric that is usually reserved for high-end furniture. It is incredibly resistant to moisture, stains and bacteria. Like the Olli, the Oobr has rigid LATCH connectors, not as part of the child restraint system, but to keep the booster seat positioned properly in the car, and make it easier for older kids to buckle themselves in without the seat wiggling around beneath them.
This is a top-of-the-line product, and the price reflects that, at $279.99. The Oobr offers the best of design, safety, convenience and comfort, and parents who want a booster seat of amazing quality will appreciate the opportunity to find all that in one seat.
