Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat in Shale
My husband and I purchased two Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seats in two different shades: Ottlie and Shale. We have a 10 month old baby boy and needed to upgrade from our Infant Chicco Keyfit Car Seat’s. After doing research on convertible car seats and getting the opinions of family and friends, we decided on the
Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seats.
I’m here to show you a close up of the two shades so you can better decide which one is right for you. I will also show you the car seat in full extension so you know how tall this car seat extends.

Ottlie vs Shale – Which Shade is Right for You?
Ottlie is pictured on the left side. Ottlie is navy blue with grey-satin-like silver accents. The Ottlie color gives me a feeling of rich opulence.
The shade Shale is mostly black with grey and beige finishes. The Shale color gives me a preppy-sweater sophisticated feel.
I purchased my Shale car seat from Buy Buy Baby. At the time of writing this, Ottlie and more colors are available on Amazon but Shale is only offered at Buy Buy Baby. You can check the Shale price at Buy Buy Baby.
Ottlie and Shale are both beautiful in person. If I had to choose one color I would go with the Shale. My husband on the other hand, preferred the navy blue Ottlie color. You really cant go wrong with either color. Check out the pretty light grey Hayden color I found here.
Extended vs Non-Extended
Here is a side by side comparison of the Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat, extended versus non-extended.
When the car seat panel panel on the bottom is extended, you gain 5” extra inches for legroom.
The headrest also extend 10 positions and should be all you would need for your growing baby.
Overall I think this is the perfect convertible car seat and I would purchase it again.
