For mamas who are in the market for one of the safest car seats on the market, you've probably run across the Clek Foonf and Fllo in your research. Well, if you've narrowed down your search to these two convertible seats from Clek, you're probably stuck trying to figure out which one will work better for your family.
Take a look here to get a better idea of the differences between the Foonf and Fllo!
Probably the most notable difference between the Foonf and the Fllo is the LATCH system for the seats. The Foonf features a rigid LATCH system that will decrease the chances of any twisting of the standard tether LATCH system (featured on the Fllo) which can cause rotating of the seat in the event of a crash. The rigid LATCH system is designed to decrease head and neck injuries specifically when facing forward.
Because of the integrated rigid LATCH system on the Foonf
, it is actually heavier than the Fllo
and a little bit taller. The Fllo is 10 pounds lighter (28 lbs vs 38 lbs) than the Foonf while in rear-facing mode, and a little less than that while in forward-facing mode. You also have to use the anti-rebound bar when installing the Foonf in rear-facing mode, but don't have to with the Fllo, so it might be the better option if you have a smaller car. Both seats are still relatively thin for a convertible seat (you can actually fit 3 side-by-side in the backseat!), but if you're looking for something lighter and slightly more compact, you will probably prefer the Fllo.
has a single recline option for both forward- and rear-facing installs, and the recline foot is actually attached to the bottom of the base. The Foonf
has two recline options for both seating options, because it has the recline bar attached to a larger base on the bottom of the seat. The Foonf might be the better option if you are looking to use the seat for its full life (up to 65 lbs/around 6 years old) to help make the seat more comfortable for your child.
Clek Foonf and Clek Fllo Recline and Base
sells for $449.99, and the Fllo
for $299.99. The differences in price are mainly due to the added safety features like the rigid LATCH system and the base that allows for the added recline options. A good rule of thumb for purchasing a car seat is to purchase the most safety that you can afford, so of course take a look at your budget, and that will also help make your decision.
Whether you are looking for a seat that has several recline options and maximum safety features, or you are trying to fit as much safety into as small of a seat as possible, the Foonf and the Fllo from Clek are amazing convertible seats that will not disappoint!
