The Combi Kobuk Air-Thru Booster Seat is a comfortable, stylish, high back booster that provides both the best in safety and comfort in an affordable way! The Combi Kobuk Air-Thru Booster Seat is for children ages 3 and up, from 33-120 pounds, and from 33 to 57 inches tall.

If you ask any kid what their favorite new items to get when school time comes, new backpacks and lunch boxes will top the list! All kids love showing off their backpacks to their friends on the first day of school and “Oooooh check out that cool lunch box!! Where did you get it?” is a hot conversation in the lunch room. As most seasoned moms of school-aged kids know, certain backpacks and lunch boxes may look fun and have your child’s favorite character on them, but often these bags will NOT last the school year. Constantly taking books and binders in and out of bags wears on the pockets, zippers and bottoms of bags and many a parent that has been suckered into buying one of these cheaper bags, often are buying a new one mid-way through the school year. This year, we have gathered some pretty awesome looking backpacks and lunch boxes that not only are super cute, but are made with quality and safe materials that will last through out the school year! These backpacks and lunch boxes are great for not only school time but for any time! They are so well made, you kids will be begging you to take them to sleepovers, to their sports activities or even just to tote all of their gear to visit a friend.
