That's not true worldwide. Booster seats are illegal in Europe, you need a full car seat for children up to 35 kg.

Really? According to this [1], they are allowed after 18kg, and after 22kg, you can even just use a booster pillow.

The laws vary by country - in general the European Commission makes recommendations, then it's up to each country to implement them at a local level.

How does that work? Do you just have to buy a new special car seat that is safe for that weight? Convertibles only go up to 50 or so pounds, and those are for the European NUNAs.

Never mind. According to google, these are what we Americans call “high backed booster seats”.
