A car seat that can safely carry a toddler can make all the difference in a car accident.

While many parents of kids under 3 say the car seat can keep a child from hitting his head or neck in a crash, others say they still want a seat with a child-friendly design that is easy to use and can withstand some of the bumps and falls a toddler will face in a wreck.

And while parents are increasingly choosing the smaller car seat options, the larger seats are still popular among families.
