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.

Update 2020

When I first wrote this review on the Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit, my son was 10 months. My son is now 2 years old (26 months to be exact) and we are still using both of these car seats (one in my car and one in my husbands). This car seat is still in excellent condition and gong strong. So yes, I would repurchase again and I am 100% satisfied with it. I’m also glad there are cup holders

Ottlie vs Shale – Which Shade is Right for You?

Graco Shale vs Ottlie premium edition 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum All-in-One Convertible Car Seat

Ottlie

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.

Shale

The shade Shale is mostly black with grey and beige finishes. The Shale color gives me a preppy-sweater sophisticated feel.

There are lots of colors to check out here.

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 colors like Hayden, Clove, and Gotham 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

2020 Update - Would I purchase again?

When I first wrote this review on the Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit, my son was 10 months. My son is now 2 years old (26 months to be exact) and we are still using both of these car seats (one in my car and one in my husbands). This car seat is still in excellent condition and gong strong. So yes, I would repurchase again and I am 100% satisfied with it. It’s super safe and has two cup holders, what’s not to love? 🙂
