Booster seats

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Booster seats covered by this policy

A booster seat is a juvenile chair, which is placed on an adult chair to elevate the child to standard dining-table height, typically for the purposes of feeding or eating. Booster seats may be height adjustable and have the ability to recline, and are intended for children up to five years old. Booster seats are not intended for use in a vehicle. For more information, go to our policy on child restraint systems in the United States.
