Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum All-in-One Convertible Car Seat

Disclaimer: I received products for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.

It's still Child Passenger Safety week and today my focus is on another brand that we all know and trust. Introducing the Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum All-in-One Convertible Car Seat. Today I want to share some advice given to me by Evenflo for you my readers, before I go into the details of this awesome convertible car seat that I will be sharing with you. Now each car seat that we share with you have something unique. Something that stands out and this Symphony DLX Platinum is no exception.

Did you know that 86% of parents move children into booster seats too soon, according to a recent Safe Kids Worldwide. Even more risky, is one in five parents of young children admits to “bending the rules” when carpooling, letting children ride without car seats, booster seats and sometimes even seatbelts.

Currently in the middle of Child Passenger Safety week (September 14-20), the study is very timely and reminds us of the importance of safety on the road. Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum All-In-One car seats grow with children, accommodating children from 5 - 110lbs and is adjustable to rear facing, forward facing harnessed and forward facing booster without harness modes.  The Symphony Seats keep car travel safe throughout childhood and may be the only car seat your child will ever need.

True safety starts even before you hit the road, especially since over 70% of car seats are incorrectly installed (NHTSA, 2006). Luckily, last month Evenflo introduced the Symphony™ All-in-One car seat with SureSafe Installation that increases proper installation by 2X. This new car seat system features revolutionary LATCH Guides and Quick Connectors to make the installation process easier.

Now on to what makes this super awesome for us. Normally we talk about installation as the last thing on our list. Today I want to share with you that first because I have to admit it was the easiest to do. Mommy was actually able to install this without daddy's help and that doesn't happen to easily.

The Symphony DLX Platinum comes with sureLATCH connectors and these were mommy's words: "This is the easiest LATCH install EVER!". It literally took about a minute to install in our Dodge Grand Caravan. You simply click the LATCH into your vehicle, push down to hear the click and feel the seat tighten right beneath your hands. Super Easy!

This comes with an Infinite Slide Harness which provides an easy, safe, accurate fit and eliminates any need for rethreading. Just simply slide up or down. Another thing we liked was the instructions on the harness itself which helps you locate the correct position when buckling your little one in, which is the harness should be placed at shoulder level. The seating is very well padded and also removable for quick machine wash.

Now if you weren't sure of where you should be buckle should be, there were even instructions on the buckle itself letting you know that it should be placed at armpit level. How cool was that? I told you they thought of the tiniest details.

Another great feature is the Buckle Pockets which protects those buckles from getting hot and even from getting lost. Now you won't have to search behind your little one looking for the buckle to strap your little one in. Yes they thought of even that little detail.

This also comes with an OUTLAST® Performance Fabric which absorbs hot and cold temperature, and which also releases it as needed. Keeping your little one cool sure makes more a much more pleasant ride. e3 Side Impact™ Protection is 3 layers of engineered foam designed and tested to reduce side impact forces up to 50%. Now you know that your little one will be safe in the event of an accident. The head and body pillow are even removable.

Now if you're wondering, well what about cup holders. Don't despair there are two included ones. They are so discreet and don't take up a lot of room like others may do. The only thing is that they are not removable.

So once again. Installation was super easy, one of the easiest we have done in FOREVER. We loved the sureLATCH system and love that the instructions on the harness and also the buckle pockets. I hate when they're behind me and mommy have to dig behind me to find them. Now they can stay cool and secure. We also love that you can stay harnessed front facing up until 65lbs which is also great. Much higher than most car seats.

This is one amazing car seat that will last for a very long time. One you can use from infancy up until they're ready for a booster which this is also. Another great all in-one from Evenflo and we can surely see why it is a best seller. And it's also why it gets our TWO TINY THUMBS UP!

  1. We would never know when accidents happen so car seats like these are a must not only for children but for adults as well. It's good that the head and body pillow can be removed.

  2. I have this car seat as well. It's the best!

  3. That looks like a really nice car seat. Evenflo is such a great brand!

  4. This is a very informative post abput car seats! Safety of our children is of the utmost importance.

  5. Highly informational post.
    I never thought Evenflo is into car seats too!

  6. Very thorough review. I will. Definitely be getting one soon!

  7. The chair is really made of high quality and is very effective since it can be convertible depending on the position desired in the car. This would be a good buy for parents with kids.

  8. That is a great seat! i wish they had this when i had my kids..

  9. These new cars seats are so much better than the ones I had when my boys were little. We had to buy 3 different seats as they grew.

  10. So nice that you don't need to have a million car seats now! Thanks for this!


  11. What a great car seat! I love the sure latch connector and the duel cup holders!

  12. If something was built for security and ease of use then I'll go for it! As a parent, it's hard to choose what carseat to buy because you do not only worry about the price but it's ratings too. This post helps a lot in making that decision.

  13. This looks like a great seat. Thanks for sharing. I thought about getting this seat but it was too big for our car. We have to have two car seats.

  14. What a car seat! It even has a sippy cup holder. Too cool!

  15. What a sweet ride for the kids. I love that the cup holders don't take up a lot of space like other car seats out there.

  16. I'm all about the cup holders, but this thing looks like a strap-on throne! Love it!

  17. We have the same car seat in one of our vehicles. It's a great one.

  18. Wow, my kids did not have car seats like this when they were young. Thank goodness they keep getting better and better and safer than ever.

  19. I love this seat! It looks so safe and yet stylish. I also like the cup holders and the secure locking system is one of the best.

  20. I love how easy this is to install. Don't you just hate car seats that you have to exert so much energy trying to install and then it's still not in correctly? I just love this. Love the instructions that comes along with the harness too.

  21. Wow, you can tell you'r a parent when you drool over a car seat! Baby Mash needs a car seat up grade, and this one is nice, with some great features!

  22. This is a really nice car seat I really like it. My son just got out of his booster seat and he is so happy.

  23. That's one cozy looking car seat! Graco makes great products!

  24. What a fantastic looking car seat! Car seats have come such a long way since my kids were little.

  25. OK I am so loving how easy this is to install as well. When I have my own child thats the one thing I'm looking for. Easy installation. Looks super comfortable and very safe as well.

  26. what a great post! I wish this car seat had been around when my kids were small... it looks like a really great one.

  27. Looks like a great seat! And love your review! Finding a good seat is so important!

  28. Finding a good car seat is so important. I know too many people who rather but expensive shoes and such and buy cheap and unsafe items for their children. Especially used and out dates car seats! Jaiden is almost 7 and he still uses a booster seat. We have to protect our children because if we don't who will? A good car seat is truly one important thing parents should invest in! Accidents happen, some drivers aren't very responsible and have a good safe car seat can make a world of difference!!

  29. I bet your child loves it! I hope I can try that someday, but I don't have a car yet. :P
