Cosco Scenera NEXT Review & Giveaway


                                       



                                                  


* Disclosure: Party of 5 received product samples in order to bring you this review. All opinions are my own. *





Cosco recently made a big move to protecting our little ones, and I cannot be more thrilled about it. They now require their seats to be used rear facing until AT LEAST 2 years old. Which is huge. I personally think this is the beginning of pushing that 1 and 20 lbs rule out of here! Along with their new requirements, they came out with a new seat called the Cosco Scenera NEXT. The seat is available at Walmart and Walmart.com for $46. That’s it! Another perk? There are 9 different, ADORABLE patterns currently on Walmart.com that you can choose from!

Now, for the good stuff. What do you expect out of a $46 seat? Probably not much, you probably figure it isn’t nearly as good as others because eh, you get what you pay for, right? Prepare to be blown away.

The Cosco Scenera NEXT, unlike many, many convertible car seats, can properly fit the tiniest of babies. It says it fits 5-40 lbs and it will truly fit a 5lb baby properly, without the straps being over the baby’s shoulders. Some infant seats don’t even do that well!

Next awesome feature? It can rear face to the max weight. This seat can rear face a child until 40 lbs and 40 inches! This will get most kids until 3 or even 4. Which is AMAZING for a $46 seat!



Don't pay attention to the gross seats! This is my husbands truck! 


The Cosco Scenera NEXT is outgrown forward facing before it is outgrown rear facing. Kids who outgrow it forward facing would most likely have a few more years left rear facing, so a new car seat will need to be purchased when your child maxes out the rear facing limits, but for the price of this seat, $46, and it will last your child 3+ years, you just can’t beat it!




This seat is also approved for use in an airplane and it is LIGHT so it makes for a perfect travel seat.

The fabric (not the straps) on the Cosco Scenera NEXT is machine washable and dryer safe, so when, (yes when) those spills happen, just pop it in the washer and dryer!





This seat is loved by car seat techs everywhere. It is so affordable and you really do get the most bang for your buck. The seat doesn’t have all the frills and bells and whistles that other seats might have, but you just don’t always need all that! This seat would be great for an everyday use seat, or if you’re looking to buy a backup seat for a second vehicle but don’t want to shell out the money, yet still get a reliable seat, or even if you just want it for traveling. Weighing under 10 lbs, being approved for use on air planes, and being so affordable, this seat could easily be purchased for travel alone!

Fun fact – did you know that Cosco Car Seats are made in America? Cosco’s first priority is family and the company is proud of what its workers do every day to help keep children safe. To coincide with the roll out of the first Scenera NEXT’s, Cosco is launching a personalized letter writing campaign. A number of the first Scenera NEXT’s will feature handwritten notes from a child of one of Cosco’s Columbus, Indiana, employees.
