Ellie’s Safety 1st Incognito Kid-Positioner Review


Meet our newest guest reviewer, Heather’s daughter, Ellie. Because the Safety 1st Incognito Kid-Positioner is made and marketed just for kids like her, we decided to let her give us her opinions of this brand new concept seat. Ellie read the manual, installed the Incognito herself, and wrote the review while mom took photos and a video. All opinions are Ellie’s and Ellie’s alone :). 

I like the Incognito because it is comfortable and easy to install. I like how it’s compatible with all types of cars but it is not compatible with airplanes because the seat belt there isn’t like any other belt. It doesn’t have a shoulder belt. All boosters need shoulder belts. The belt guides on the seat help with safety and keep the lap belt low.

The Incognito can handle 60-120 lbs. and 47-60”. For people who use the metric system, it can handle 27.2-54.4 kg and 119.4-142.4 cm. It is meant for older kids who don’t like sitting in a booster seat. It doesn’t look like a booster seat and I think it is embarrassing to sit in a booster at age 11 and a half.

The seat is very well designed and can fit any car. First of all, we didn’t get the right color. We got black because it was all they had. But that’s okay, I don’t mind much. I like the look of the seat. I like it better than my old seat because it looks like an elevated vehicle seat. I wouldn’t change anything about the Incognito. I think the seat will be great for any car driven on vacation and for going to school.

Your child can even install it herself! All you do is: plop the seat in to where the child is sitting and attach the belt (with the open part facing forward) to the belt guide. When you unbuckle, leave the first belt guide alone. That will be much less threading every time (I show you how in the video).

When you first get the seat, before you do anything with it, make sure you read the “Safety 1st” manual that comes with the seat. Also, make sure to never put the seat facing backwards because of safety reasons. I hope this review helped you decide to get the Incognito. Also, thank you for reading Carseatblog.com. Remember, drive safe!

The Safety 1st Incognito will be shipping soon and is currently available at Amazon.com for $19.99. It will be sold in black, grey and tan to match vehicle interiors.

Thank you to Safety 1st for providing the Incognito to us for review!
