Private Stash: Cosco Booster Seat

Cosco Seat

I found this adorable 1970s chair at a garage sale last summer. It is in wonderful condition. This garage sale consisted of loads of things a retired teacher had owned. There were several shelves full of old children’s books from her classroom. When I finally finished looking though the books, I spotted this little chair tucked beside the checkout table. I figured it had been put there for safe keeping while someone was finishing up their shopping, but I had to ask. To my surprise nobody had claimed it. I was so happy with the $1.00 prices tag on it. I just love the original vinyl seat cushion with black and white houndstooth check pattern. The chrome legs can be adjusted to two different height levels. The bottoms of the legs have rubber anti-slide grippers on them.

These were advertised as booster sets. It was part of the Cosco Household Products, Inc. line and made in Columbus, Indiana. The bottom of the seat reads, “This Cosco product is for home use/Use a Cosco seat in your Auto.”  You could strap the child in by putting the lap belt through the side openings.

This was definitely used more to boost the toddler up higher to get more of a view than as a safety car seat. I just remember laying in the back window if I wanted a view. Today these seats look great sitting in almost any room, they are also lightweight and easy to clean. It has been a great addition to my home. Angela also has one of these chairs she will be sharing tomorrow. Just wait until you see how cute her chair is!
