Foonf Convertible Car Seat - Jersey Knit
The Clek Foonf is the mother of all car seats. Its patented REACT (Rigid-Latch Energy Absorbing Crumple Technology) safety system revolutionizes forward-facing safety performance by significantly reducing the forces transmitted to the child in a collision delivering 'rear-facing like' performance.
Foonf offers an industry-leading extended rear-facing use up to 40 pound, complete with a steel anti-rebound bar for enhanced safety performance. Its tank-like construction features a complete metal substructure, dual layers of energy absorbing foam and adjustable structural headrest for advanced side impact protection. Innovative convenience features like Rigid-LATCH makes proper forward-facing installation effortless.
At less than 17 inches wide, it makes 3-across installation possible in most vehicles. The Foonf is tailored in GREENGUARD Select Certified Crypton Super Fabrics, which provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odor-causing bacteria; and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants (excluding leather models).
- Foonf was designed to international best practices for extended rear-facing use, which is to accommodate children in a rear-facing installation until their 4th birthday.
- Energy-absorbing foam-lined Headrest connected to frame using steel rods provides maximum head protection in a side-impact collision.
- Foam layers on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.
- Foonf is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure.
- In Rear-Facing mode, Foonf's Anti-Rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat, helping protect your child's head from impact in the case of a collision.
- Over 80% of child seats in North America are not used properly. Hands down the easiest Forward-Facing installation in its class, Foonf's Rigid-LATCH system makes proper Forward-Facing installation effortless.
- Unique design improves Rear-Facing installation with an easy-access belt path, small footprint and Anti-Rebound Bar that provide a snug installation with ease.
- Foonf includes an easy-to-engage, smooth recline function, making each ride more comfortable.
- Crypton Super Fabrics are GREENGUARD Select Certified and provide permanent protection against stains, moisture and odor-causing bacteria; and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants.

Comfy and sturdyVery comfortable and luxurious feel!
My kid loves it.I love this seat. My kid loves it too! It fits perfectly in my Tacoma which has a tiny back seat. Managed a middle install. Like that it comes with so many different methods for both rear and front facing installation. I am sure we will get our years worth out of this seat.
Our forth foonfWe love all of our Clek seats. We will soon be moving on to booster seats and will be sticking to this brand.
Only downfall is that shipping took a month. So I would recommend buying from a store that has them in stock rather than ordering directly from the website.
Fave car seatWe love this car seat! It’s the 3rd foonf we have bought and we are so happy every time. Will be looking into buying a 4th soon!
Clek Foonf reefEasy online ordering. Fast shipping. Car seat exceeds my expectations.
Dla FasolkiIt was a long time since we had to install a child seat ???? and now again but this time for our first born grandchild,Eleanor.It was a wonderful feeling.Marry Popins i Dziadek.
FloofGood. Would be nice to have softer cushion and lumbar support. Also removable cup holders. Have no other similar car seat to compare to but is not user friendly for sizing. Is very securely installed in vehicle so thats a plus.
Clek foonfFantastic as always. It shipped fast!!
Great and solid for safety, horrible to clean if you have kid that gets car sick alotWe chose this carseat for many reasons, 1) its Canadian made, 2) the solid latch system, 3) its solid and high safety record. After using this carseat for 3 years now, the thing I dislike the most is how difficult it is to clean. We unfortunately have a kiddo that easily gets carsick (i.e. several times a month). The fabric itself cleans very well and there are no obvious visual stains, but I cannot get the full puke smell out of the fabric if my life depended on it! There are so many nooks and crannys under the seat that throw-up manages to find very easily along open seams. Every time the kiddo gets sick, I have to take the entire carseat apart and out of the car. I try to get all the chunks and such out of obscure places that are under the seat and along the base. The foam under the seat cushion seems to absorb the smell the most and throw up seems to seep under where the buckle is. I have tried washing it in a front load washer but the foam seems to hold onto the smell a bit (the washing machine definitely helps overall). I really wish the carseat had a seamless cover that would trap all of the puke/or minimize what travels below, and/or that I could take off all of the fabric and throw it in the wash to really do a deep clean to fully remove the smell. And yes, I do have the clek cleaning kit - great for the fabric, not helpful for the nooks under the seat.
Safety wise, this thing is a solid beast, and is one of the main reasons we bought it. Generally, we do no travel with this carseat as it is large, heavy and does not fit in all cars. We like how it sits the kiddo higher up, so they can look out the window. Given we have a kiddo that gets carsick, I'm not sure if I would buy this again, but I have recommended it to many people. Furthermore, given the price of the carseat I wish the recycling program was either included with the purchase, or had cash incentive (not coupon incentive). Having to pay $40 upfront to send it to clek so they can recycle it after spending over $600 for the product seems to be little incentive for most people, when you can drop it off at the dump for half the price. I know clek gives you a coupon worth the same amount, but I wish I could just get that cash back off my original purchase instead of having to buy another product using the coupon. I want to do what's right for the environment, but I just want cash back, not a coupon. What if I don't want to buy another clek?
I know this review seems a little negative, but I wanted to elaborate what bugs me the most with the carseat so parents know what to expect - especially if they have a kid that gets carsick.
Overall, it really is easy to install - there is no guessing on if you have installed it correctly. And it is really rock solid, I feel that the kiddo is very safe in it. I also love how you can adjust the angle of the seat - helps if kiddo wants to sleep. We have the mat thingy, which helps ease some cleaning as nothing gets onto our car, and a cup holder which makes water easily accessible for the kiddo. This seat fit the kiddo really well since the upgrade from the bucket seat, like I said we have used this carseat for the past 3 years and probably have 1-2 years until we need to upgrade again to a booster seat. Even though its a bit pricey, it definitely lasts and looks nice throughout the years, if I could throw all of the fabric in the wash I'm sure there wouldn't be any smell - and with that said, most people likely don't have the consistent puker problem.
I hope this review will give some ideas to the manufacturer - perhaps wrapping the entire seat cushion in fabric will eliminate the foam soaking up any messes/puke/etc, and/ make a cover that parents of pukers can buy that will provide a seamless cover that can be thrown into the wash.
AwesomeEasy installation, extremely sturdy seat, I feel confident that my baby will be safe!
