A bill passed last month in the Massachusetts Senate requires that you strap your child into a booster seat until he is 8 years old and 57 inches tall, an increase over the current 6 years, 40 pounds limit. The bill still needs House approval, but the people at Magna Aftermarket Inc. have already acted on it, offering the clek seat belt-positioning booster specially designed for bigger kids. It's called olli but there's nothing babyish about it. It's built like a backless car seat, with plenty of padding, and features rigid fasteners that latch directly to the anchors built into the back seats of newer cars (the seats are safe with older cars, too). The booster weighs a mere 5 pounds and costs $89.99 (extra seat covers are $29.99), comes in eight colors, and is available at Wild Child, 397 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington, 781-483-3566, and online at magnaclek.com.
