11 Worst Booster Seats for Kids According to Safety Group (PHOTOS)

child in booster seatBetween style, convenience, and of course, safety, choosing a booster seat for your child is not an easy decision. But one report is about to narrow down your list. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) just came out with their annual ranking of the best and worst booster seats for kids.

Among the 41 brand new models for 2014, they listed 27 as "Best Bets," which is their highest ranking in all categories. Beyond that, there are three "Good Bets," which offer standard safety and comfort. But then eight new models fall under the "Check Fit" category, which means that depending on the model of the car, the seat might not work. And then the worst offenders: three new seats make the "Not Recommended" list because of safety concerns.
