It's a kidSMARTTM toddler-to-big kid booster. Kids are not babies, Kids are not Toddlers,
Kids according to Webster Dictionary are between the ages of 2 yrs and 5 yrs old. They are very capable of doing many things on their own and it's our job as parents to promote independence. "We spend 24 months of their lives teaching them to walk and talk, then the next 24 months of their lives telling them "to sit down and shut up", a quote from comedian and mom, Phyllis Diller.
So why do manufacturers want to put safety straps on booster seats for toddlers who are ready to graduate
from the high chair to the big chair?
Because it "looks" like it's safe. In some cases, with VERY small children who are not ready to sit independently it is. However most times it is not. As a member of ASTM safety standards for Booster seats, our founder Diane Zissu found that almost every (documented) accident that occured with children on booster seats were due to safety straps and trays disengaging, children pushing away from the table and falling while being strapped in... leaning sideways "to get out" pulling the chair with them to topple on top....this is not safe. Like a bicycle without training wheels, children are capable of knowing how to balance, and where they are sitting. They can adjust their bodies to a fall, and they are conscious of
what they are sitting on. We still remind you to never leave your child unattended in a room alone.
So, what is a
Cooshee with Tip.PreventTM
a booster, a buddy, a helper, a hassle-free behavioral aid,
Superior to all others; Cooshee is truly soft. Why sit your child on a hard plastic booster seat? We will answer that question. Do not! Children want to be comfortable, they
want to behave like a big kid. They want to be independent.
But most important, a soft foam booster moves with your child, not against them. A hard shell, or structure is much
easier to tip, a rounded base is unsafe and a small booster
in size can be unstable. Cooshee's are the largest
booster on the market, yet when a child is seated, perfect in size. It's not a baby seat! It's a big-kid seat for little kids!
Why do we always hear from our little ones; "I can do it"?Well we agree...they can! Easy to climb in and out of and gentle on little ones knees; a Cooshee is COOL to sit on. It's so comfortably, soft & squishy, your little one will stay seated longer & on task, behaving like a big kid.
We believe every child deserves a Cooshee.
Our KidSmart Cooshee Hybak is designed with our exclusive flared angle Tip.PreventTM base that stays put with the weight of a child. Cooshee was independently tested in accordance with the ASTM standard F963, Sec. 188.8.131.52 & 8.15for sideways stability and stabilization. Cooshee Passed 100% to remain stable in all orientations when in use. For additional assurance, the test was conducted at a 10 degree incline while loaded with 50 lbs to the center of the seating surface for informational purposes only. Again, the Cooshee Booster Hybak remained stable in all orientations. Cooshee with Tip.Prevent!
