Sunshine Kids carseats changed their name to Diono effective September 1, 2011. This was made as the company grew globally. The Radian car seat is still the same safe, dependable, tested and trusted seat it was under the name Sunshine Kids.
Lizzie has used the Sunshine Kids Radian since she was 2 years old. She is currently 4 years old, 37 pounds and still fits in the 5 point harness according to safety standards and belt height.
To say I love Diono car seats is an understatement! My Sunshine Kids radian is still my favorite seat to use and I know this Diono radian is the same in many ways and my new favorite seat – only because it is newer and not worn in yet.
My favorite features are:
Slim Design – it fits in my husband’s truck perfectly.
Side Impact – Lizzie calls them her pillows and blame them for her falling asleep in the car. I know that they have gone through testing and make me feel safer.
Long rear facing limit – I keep my kids rear facing as long as possible. It has a rear-facing weight limit of 45 pounds! Talk about peace of mind! Extended rear facing is the safest option and I keep my kids rear facing until the limit of the seat. David is under 30 lbs and has a ways to go before he has to be turned front facing.
Long Forward Facing 5 pt harness limit – Kids can stay harnessed up to 65 pounds or until their shoulders go above the tallest slot. Lizzie is currently an inch below the tallest slot, so our time is ticking. But after that it can be used as a high back booster. She can stay in the high back booster mode up to 120 pounds! (note: children can safely sit without a booster when the can sit on the seat with the back against the seat and knees reach the edge and when they are mature enough not to put the seat belt behind their head.)
