Ready to make the ride around town with your little buddy a whole lot smoother?

Look no further than the stylish Oobr Booster Car Seat by Clek! With a unique, safety-focused design, the Canadian-made Oobr (not to be confused with Uber) is consistently awarded 5-star reviews from parents like you.

Like all booster seats, the Oobr is used after your child ages out of their infant and forward-facing car seats (usually around the 40 lbs. / 4-year mark), providing them with extra support and protection in the event of an accident.

So fasten your seat belt as we dive deep and give you the 411 on this mini marvel!

5-Piece Elemental Safety System 

THE SPECS:
  • Suitable for children 40 to 100 lbs. or from 38” to 57" tall (high back) / 40” to 57” tall (backless) 
  • Dimensions: 28" x 17" x 13" 
  • Seat Weight: 20 lbs.
  • Height of the rear of the seat: 4.5" 
  • Height of the front of the seat: 5" 
  • Height of the armrest: 9"

  • Overall width with Drink-Thingy: 20" 
  • Inner Width of the headrest: 7.75" 
  • Height from seating surface to shoulder belt guide: 14” to 21" 

Clek takes your child’s safety seriously...very seriously! In fact, the Oobr uses a 5-piece Elemental Safety System to help reduce injury in the event of a collision: 


1. LATCH Connectors:
A steel-base substructure integrates LATCH connectors on the rear of the booster. These simply clip to your backseat’s lower anchors for a secure fit with increased seat stability. This also ensures the booster won’t fly through the air if a collision occurs while the seat in unoccupied.

2. Magnesium Shell:
A high-impact, magnesium shell frame helps contain your child’s torso and keep them in place.

3. Sidelines:
The headrest comes with sidelines for containing the head. Metal posts limit the headrest from twisting as well.

4. EPP Foam:
Energy-absorbing EPP foam is included in the headrest, armrests, and bolster area.

5. Belt Guides:
Shoulder belt and lap belt guides allow for proper positioning when using the seat.

In addition to this unique safety system, the Oobr is also free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants — their Mammoth and Railroad models are also free of any added flame retardants.

Fantastic Fabrics

Clek wants your child to feel Oobr cool in their Oobr seat, so there are over 10 different fabric styles for families to choose from:

Essentials Collection:
This is the base-level Oobr fabric. It uses sleek and soft OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified fabric and is only available on the Railroad model. Jersey Knit Collection: The next step up is a lightweight polyester-spandex blend found only on the Carbon model.

Performance Collection:
C-Zero Plus Performance Fabric by Crypton® is split into two collections. This fabric is GREENGUARD Gold Certified and the best option for parents looking for durability and resistance to stains, moisture, and odours. Standard C-Zero Plus Collection (soft, terry-cloth feel): Snowberry, Prince Aura and 10 Year Blue

Premium C-Zero Plus Collection:
Thunder, Cloud, Pitch Black (smooth feel) / Marshmallow, Snow (plush, chenille feel)

Premium Collection:
The highest grade Oobr fabric is hypoallergenic and only found on their Mammoth model. It’s made with natural materials, using OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified and ethically sourced non-mulesed Merino Wool. This is the only Oobr fabric geared toward temperature regulation and breathability.

What We Love About It

It’s no wonder parents rave about this booster seat — there’s plenty to love about the Oobr! Here’s why we are seeing heart emojis (and why you will too):

Easy Install:
There’s nothing quite as frustrating as struggling to install a car seat. Thankfully, with its easy LATCH system design, you simply push the booster into position until you hear it go *click!*

Perfect Positioning:
We love how it raises kids 4 inches higher to improve the in-vehicle shoulder belt fit and that it includes belt guides and an adjustable headrest for perfect positioning for all ages. On top of all that, you can recline the seat back for the most comfortable angle.

Convertible:
Once your child reaches 40 to 57 inches tall, you can fully remove the Oobr’s high back so they’ll simply have a booster seat.

Drinky Poo:
Kids can always have their beverage of choice nearby with the included Drink-Thingy cup holder (P.S. it’s also removable and dishwasher safe!)

Travel Ready:
If you want to take the Oobr with you on a trip, have no fear, the Weelee Travel Bag is here! With two rugged wheels and a telescoping handle, this travel bag allows you to move the seat with ease, just like luggage.

What We Wish Was Better 

If there’s one gripe we have about the Oobr, it’s that it isn’t the easiest seat to clean.

While the Performance Collection fabrics have stain/moisture-resistant qualities, at some point, you’ll need to do a deeper clean. While the seat cushion is removable, it can only be hand-washed. For this we recommend grabbing the Crypton Fabric Cleaning & Stain Remover Kit.

Additionally, you’ll probably also need the Clek Mat-Thingy. This gets placed underneath the booster seat to avoid dangling feet muddying up the vehicle’s upholstery (which is pretty much a guarantee otherwise!).
