Graco’s Size4Me 70 Convertible Car Seat – the ONLY seat you’ll need from 4-70 lbs! {Review & Giveaway ~ US}

Thank you to Graco for providing me with a Size4Me 70 Convertible Car Seat, free of charge, for review.  These are my own honest opinions.

One of the most important purchasing decisions you will make in terms of baby gear for your children will be the car seat that you place them in.  A great seat with proper safety features – and properly installed – can be all the difference in a car accident.  Graco is a name known by nearly every parent.  I was recently sent the Size4Me™ 70 convertible car seat in Branson to review.

There are so many fabulous features to share about this great seat.  First of all, the Size4Me 70 Convertible Car Seat holds a rear-facing infant from 4-40 pounds … and a forward-facing child in its 5-point harness from 20-70 pounds.  So, all-in-all this seat holds your child from 4-70 pounds, making it quite realistically the only seat that you would need!

Graco has created the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system, which automatically adjust both your harness and head rest height.  You can make this adjustment with just one hand and it is so much better than removing the seat and re-threading the harness each time if needs adjusted.  If you have two children in convertible car seats at the same point in life, like I do, this feature is even more invaluable, as my girls can now switch seats whenever they would like and I can quickly adjust it depending on who is sitting in this seat.  You simply squeeze the red handle at the top of the seat marked “8 Positions” and pull up or press down to the desired height.

The car seat also offers Graco’s exclusive InRight™ LATCH system for one-second LATCH attachment.  The latches nicely store on the sides of the seat as well, depending on whether the seat is rear or front facing.  I was able to simply install the LATCH attachments and tighten them to supreme tightness without any assistance from my husband – huge win in my book!

The seat itself is very sharp looking.  I love that it has a built-in cup holder rather than one that is removable that juts out from the side of the seat.  The head and body supports are very plush and sure to keep your child’s head from wobbling back and forth.  When they are older and no longer need this additional support, they are easily removable!

Adjusting the harness straps is a breeze, but finding the latch that allows you to do such may turn out to be a bit tricky.  Reach your hand just above the strap that lays between your child’s legs and pull up on the silver latch.  At the same time, pull on the harness straps from the shoulder position and you will receive slack!

My 2-year old – weighing 28 pounds – was more than happy to show off this new seat.  She kept saying “This is soooo nice!” over and over and didn’t want to leave the car after her first time sitting in it!

Additional features are that the Size4Me™ 70 features EPS foam, three recline and two buckle positions to keep your child snug and secure. This seat is Safe Seat Engineered which includes Side Impact Testing.  Also very important to me is that the seat cushion is removable for machine washing; a clean seat makes this mama happy!

I love the Branson print, too – it is nicely neutral and won’t show dirt as quickly as a lighter print would.  As with my other experiences with Graco, I am very impressed and pleased with this seat and can place my precious cargo into it with absolute confidence – and that is what matters most to me in a seat for my children!

You can stay connected with Graco on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest!

  1. Teresa Young says

    I appreciate that the Graco Car Seat has been Side Impact Tested and will keep my granddaughter due in November as safe as possible.

  2. joanne gentry says

    Two of the features that I really like are the removable seat cushion for washing, and the fact that the weight limits are so broad, 4-70 lbs ….I especially appreciate the latter fact because in this economy it is so nice to know this is a car seat that will grow with the child and will not need to be replaced after 40lbs. This is a beautiful car seat.

  3. Angela W says

    I love all of the safety features which are the most important to me and I also like that the cover is machine washable!

  4. Bekah Kuczenski says

    I love the InRight latch system and I love that you would only need 1 car seat from birth to 70 lbs. I would love to win this for my baby boy due in September!!

  5. Amanda Boerst says

    I love that the seat is rated for rear facing up to 40 lbs AND 40 inches tall!

  6. Jenn McClearn says

    I think the best feature is that is holds a child from 4-70lbs , too many seats are only good for a limited time

  7. Stephanie Phelps says

    I love the Removable head and body support helps keep baby comfy – This is nice that it grows with them

  8. Susan Johnson says

    I love that with this car seat, you are prepared for the next 4 years, because it adjusts from infant to child with the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system. The latch system allows for easy in and out, and all kinds of cushioning for comfort.

  9. says

    Oh my gosh! What don’t I love? I love the cup holder, the fact that it’s the last carseat I would ever have to get. The cushions. WOW what an awesome carseat. Thank you for the chance!

  10. Faride says

    I like that it adjusts as your child grows. Typically I’ve gone thru 3 car seats for my boys- infant car seat, toddler size car seat and a booster seat. This would be awesome for my daughter.

  11. Colleen Maurina says

    I like that this car seat accommodates children from 4 to 70 pounds and has 3-position recline.

  12. Donna Pyszk says

    I like a removable head/body support, three recline and two buckle positions to keep your child snug and secure -

  13. laurie nykaza says

    rear facing is what my is important to me and I love the cup holder too for when the child’s older

  14. says

    Side Impact tested* (*In addition to meeting or exceeding all applicable US safety standards, the Size4Me™ 70 car seat has been side impact tested for occupant retention by the harness system) This is my favorite feature

  15. Carrie Phelps says

    I love that it’s adjustable to grow with the child and I also love that it has a Easy-to-read level indicator for hassle-free installation.

  16. Timothy Beaty says

    The head cushions look perfect, my baby always looks like he’s going to choke in my car seat.

  17. Amanda Starr says

    The top for me is that you can use it from 4-70 lbs, also like the InRight™ LATCH system.

  18. Nici R says

    I love that it can keep a child rear facing until 40 pounds and accomodates a child forward facing until 70 pounds. It is hard to find a car seat able to do that that isn’t $300! I love Graco!

  19. Patricia Wojnar Crowley says

    I love that it grows with the child and automatically adjusts both the harness and head rest height!

  20. stephanie says

    I love the 70 lbs weight limit! It looks like my kids would be much happier sitting in this than the booster seat they are stuck in!

  21. Jessica Fortner says

    I love that it has 3 position recline. My son always knocks out in the car. Lol

  22. KaySue says

    I like the size range that this seat accommodates, and that the cushions are machine washable.

  23. Em Ma says

    I like how fast and easy it is to install and that it can hold children from 4-70 pounds

  24. Jessica Cox says

    I like that it holds a rear-facing infant from 4-40 lbs. and forward-facing child in its 5-point harness from 20-70 lbs

  25. Elizabeth B says

    This is great! It is forward and rear-facing and it goes all the way up to 70lbs !

  26. Annahi225 (@Annahi225) says

    First off I am a huge fan of Graco products! I really like that they were quick to come up with great carseats to accomodate the new recommendation of rear-facing up to 2 years of age. I also love that you can keep this car seat until your child is 70lbs. I think my 4yo’s convertible car seat went up to 50-60 lbs? Also, I like that there is a built in cup holder. I can’t tell you how many drinks have been spilled because of those flimsy holders.

  27. Chrissy says

    4 – 70 lbs is awesome! I like the fact that you don’t need to keep getting new car seats , not to mention I really love GRACO products.

  28. Tana McAtee says

    I LOVE that it goes up to 70 lbs!! In Texas we now have to be rear-facing for 2 full years, so the fact that it is both rear and forward facing with such a wide range of weight is wonderful.

  29. Jessica Greenleaf says

    I love the versatility that it has all around height, weight, removable pads for when they get bigger. Just all around great car seat .

  30. Meredith says

    I love the cup holder that doesn’t take up any additional space and also that it grows with baby to 70 pounds.

  31. Cassandra Eastman says

    I love that it holds rear facing for up to 40lbs. My 4 year old could still rear face in this! My 21 month old definitely could!

  32. Kelly D says

    I like the Adjust harness system, which automatically adjust both your harness and head rest height. This is great for the comfort and safety of my child.

  33. andrea d says

    Whats not to love?? The fact that it goes up to seventy pounds is awesome. SOme may disagree with me but I think this looks bette than my…well I wont mention the name but its one of the most expensive carseats out there and I HATE IT! lol so I would love to win this because it looks so much better then the supposedly ” BEST ” car seat I have. I also like that you can adjust the headrest..On mine its such a pain… and On this one my son can rear face till 40 pounds thats amazing!!

  34. Kele Wassum says

    I love the 20 – 70 pound weight. So many times you end up with 3 car seats because you have to change so often

  35. Brittany S. Chelette says

    I LOVE the huge weight range and how easy the seat cover is removable for washing!

  36. Ashley says

    I love that it grows with your child. its really worth more since you can use it longer.

  37. Glenna F says

    I like the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system, it is great that it adjusts the harness and the headrest.

  38. Kari Ploysa says

    3 position recline and forward facing as well as backward facing. It’ll grow with my baby

  39. Brittany C. says

    I like the cup holder and that it can be used for your child’s whole time using a carseat.

  40. Saver Sara says

    I love the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system, which automatically adjust both your harness and head rest height -

  41. Keara B. says

    I love that it’s rear-facing to 40 lbs- so much safer! And the cup holder is great because my daughter hates not having her water bottle accessible. :)

  42. Charlotte says

    i love that it holds children up to 70 pounds therefore you don’t have to buy another car seat most likely! I also love the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system which definitely comes in handy to be able to adjust the harness and head rest height, so that if you have more than one child they can take turns sharing the same car seat without it being a hassle!

  43. Abigail says

    I LOVE the automatic adjustment feature! Its such a pain on my older model. The cupholder is a big plus too!!!

  44. Mya Murphy says

    I love that it’s good for babies to all the way up to 70 lbs!!! And the safety features rock!

  45. Laura Unger says

    I like that it has the removable seat cushion for washing, and that it has removable head/body supports. We have a graco for our first son and would love one for our second!

  46. says

    I like how it goes up to 70#. I’m not really keen on the cup holder, though. If you’re in an accident whatever is in the cup holder is a projectile right to your child’s head.

  47. Misty Brown says

    I love how it grows with the child and that you don’t have to be constantly buying a new car seat every year or two.

  48. Melissa O. says

    I love that I wouldn’t need to keep buying new seats for each stage. It is pretty awesome that it can adjust and fit a child up to 70lbs

  49. Katie Roch says

    My favorite feature is the Machine washable pads. It makes cleaning so much easier.

  50. Jennifer Aldridge says

    I like that it has an Easy-to-read level indicator for hassle-free installation. So hard to tell on some car seats whether they are installed at the right angle.

  51. Jillian Warner says

    i like that it has the side protection and the weight that it goes to is fantastic

  52. rachel travis says

    IT’s adjustable, so it “grows” with the child and has great side impact protection!

  53. says

    I love that it easily grows with your child! The Simply Safe Adjust harness system automatically adjusts both your harness & head rest height, love that!

  54. Shelley Hammond says

    Love that ease of adjusting the straps, while still making sure they are safely in place.

  55. Ross Hassel says

    This car seat also offers our exclusive InRight™ LATCH system for one-second LATCH attachment.

  56. Wendy McBride says

    I like that it can hold larger weights and is comfortable!

  57. says

    I like that it has adjustable heights so even if your child still has to be in a carseat but is taller than most you can adjust it to fit them.

  58. Adrienne Bireley says

    Where to begin. Love the washable pads…that it goes rear facing up to 40 lbs and the awesome harness.

  59. Sheryl says

    I think it is great that it grows with your child so you don’t have to buy more than one and that the seat cushion is removable for machine washing.

  60. kathy pease says

    I like the 5-point, front-adjust harness helps you get baby in and out and the 3-position recline keeps your growing child comfortable

  61. Richard Hicks says

    favorite feature is the Simply Safe Adjust™ harness system

    brich22 at earthlink dot net

  62. Gayle S says

    The most important feature to me is it will keep my grandchildren safe all the way up to 70 pounds!

  63. Lyndsey R. says

    The Safe Adjust Harness System is most important to me but the fact that the cover is machine washable is always a plus.

    lyndsey.rullman at hotmail dot com

  64. Deb S says

    I really like the One-second LATCH attachment featuring our exclusive In Right™ LATCH system

  65. Gaye M says

    I most appreciate that it grows with your child to hold a rear-facing infant from 4-40 lbs. and forward-facing child from 20-70 lbs.

  66. samantha s says

    I love that you can adjust the harness and head rest at the same time. I have three boys in a convertible car seat and another baby on the way next month!

  67. Whitney says

    I love that I don’t have to buy a second car seat when my child gets too big to be rear facing.

  68. Vikki Billings says

    I like the 5-point, front-adjust harness helps you get baby in and out – See more at:

  69. Diana B says

    I like that it goes up to 70 lbs. I’ve bought 3 car seats for my 7 year old, 2 for my 2 year old, and I’m currently expecting so it would be great to be one and done when it comes to the car seat

  70. Brenna says

    I love that it can grow with your child! Its so nice to have things they wont outgrow quickly!

  71. Suzie Williams says

    I like the high weight limit! We plan on keeping kids in car seats for as long as possible.
