A growing child leaves a trail of suddenly-short pants, too-tight shoes and outgrown car seats. Keeping children safe in a vehicle can be a confusing and expensive challenge for parents who often amass a collection of car seats throughout the years. Recognizing that car seat safety is a priority for parents, the Graco Nautilus Multi-Stage Car Seat eliminates the need for multiple car seat purchases while safely and comfortably seating children from 20 to 100 pounds. Nautilus is the only car seat that converts from a forward-facing car seat with a five-point harness, to high-back booster seat to backless booster seat, to fit toddler to big kid until they are ready to use the seatbelt without a booster.

The five-point harness in the Nautilus is designed to fit children up to 65 lbs, keeping them safely harnessed longer than most other car seats. The seat then converts to a high-back booster for children up to 100 lbs and further transforms into a backless booster as the child grows.

"Graco is committed to ensuring the safety of children and Nautilus keeps little ones harnessed as long as possible to keep them safe until they are ready to use the seatbelt," says Donna Powers, Sales and Marketing Manager for Graco Canada.

First launched in the U.S., the highly sought after Nautilus flew off store shelves and as shoppers clamored to scoop up the innovative car seat, a dedicated online following of parents went so far as to create an intricate online mapping system to help other parents find the Nautilus in stores across the country. Now, the Nautilus is available in Canada with features such as EPS energy absorbing foam and wide armrests to keep kids comfy while a cup holder and handy side storage pouches keep snacks and must-haves within reach. Sturdy construction, extensive crash testing and steel-reinforced structure give parents peace of mind.

The Nautilus Multi-Stage Car Seat is available at Babies 'R' Us, Sears, Wal-Mart, Zellers and independent specialty retailers across Canada, with a suggested retail price of $239.99. For more information, please visit www.gracobaby.com.
