I want a safe and attractive car seat for toddler

When it comes to their kids, moms always want the best! Product recommendation engine Wize.com just made it easy for moms to find the best car seat to buy - and learn which ones to totally avoid - with the 2009 Wize Choice Awards. The car seats that were rated best overall in thousands of reviews from parents across the Web are the Britax Roundabout Denim, Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat and Sunshine Kids Monterey.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the worst car seats - those that have been truly panned by consumer reviews - received the UnWize Choice Award alerting parents to stay far away. The 2009 UnWize Choice Awards for car seats go to the Evenflo Embrace Pink, the Dorel Juvenile Group Bryant Collection Booster Car Seat and the Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat. Reviews cited safety concerns, shoddy quality and poor design as primary reasons for blackballing these seats.

The Wize Choice Awards are selected using the patent-pending Wize Product Research Engine, which analyzes millions of online product reviews. It allows consumers to search for products using natural, everyday language - "I want a safe and attractive car seat for toddler" - and bases its findings on what consumers have said is important.

Here's what consumers are saying about the best car seats:

Britax Roundabout Denim: "But if you want the best and most safe, combined with the highest convenience and style, this BRITAX ROUNDABOUT IS THE WAY TO GO!!!"

And what they're saying about the worst car seats:

59% of the reviewers have given this baby car seat less than 3 stars
14% of the reviewers have mentioned not safe and unsafe

Dorel Juvenile Group Bryant Collection Booster Car Seat: "This is the worst car seat / booster that I've purchased. It looks comfortable, BUT it's not because the back is not adjustable."

79% of the reviewers have given this baby car seat less than 3 stars
24% of the reviewers have mentioned not safe and unsafe

Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat: "I bought this total piece of junk. It's probably not best to buy a child's seat from a company that's normally known for men's outdoor wear - Eddie Bauer should be ashamed of even allowing their name to be on this thing."

58% of the reviewers have given this baby car seat less than 3 stars
16% of the reviewers hate this product
