If looks were everything, the Combi Zeus Turn Car Seat may be giving the Orbit Baby and Nestt a run for their money. Comparable to many infant/toddler car seats, the Combi Zeus is $300, but affords many perks that the others don't.

For starters, it is suitable for infants as small as five pounds through toddlers weighing 40 pounds. Additionally, like the Orbit Baby and Nestt, parents can swivel the seat on the base, making it easy to load and unload your child for rear- or forward-facing positioning. For kids taking a long ride, parents and tots can take pleasure in the ability to recline the forward-facing seat into a more laid-back position — sounds like a bonus for lengthy plane rides or hourless road trips.

While the Combi Zeus sounds like a dream, I have heard a few complaints. One mother said that after latching the seat into her car, the swivel-lock system failed and the seat repeatedly turned sideways as she drove — putting her tot's life in danger as children should be rear of forward facing. Others complained that the swivel mechanism is not easy to use making it more of a hassle than a convenience. Still, some brag it is the best seat on the market and offers ease beyond belief.
