Really how?

I have seen the one in Halfords and its no different as far as I can see :?

This seat never in its life sold for £100. Halfords bump up the price in just enough stores so that when its sale time they can show a reduction in all stores as 'was £100 now £39.99' They do that on most of their stuff, as do many other retailers.

Halfords say-- Image for illustration purposes only - fabrics may vary


And I can swear that the one I saw in Halfords looked identical to the one showing on Kiddicare site as opposed to on its own :)

For £39.99 reserve and collect I think its a decent price just but don't for a second think its worth over £50 as claimed

It's still a different seat though... Kiddicare has the "Graco Junior Basic Milano" Halfords is the "Rally Sport"

Mothercare also have a very similar one reduced from £40 to £29.99. I bought one a couple of days ago and am very impressed. Apart from the colour I can't see a lot different with it. It's a Graco® Junior highback booster seat - Scarlet Sport.

does nobody else think its a bit funny that they call child seats thinks like "rally sport," it just makes me think that the kids with the super rally spec trim must look down on the kids with normal named seats

weve had this seat in black for about three years now and it is bang on.the wee man has regulary travelled over three hundred miles in it and never moaned once.(well about the seat anyway).good buy with good protection.:thumbsup:
#15
Very little side and head protection compared to the Britax Evolva 23, that scores the best in the Which tests and can be had for similar money.

Isnt the graco the one Which warned about ?

Yes it was the Graco Junior - I think Which were saying that although it complies with minimum standards, it should be withdrawn from sale.

We replaced our Graco Junior - they are practical seats but need more padding on the base for longer journals. If you can afford a better one then get one. Whats more important £50 more to possibly save your child from serious injury or an extra £50 for luxuries.......
#17
Yes thats the one, this Rally Sport seat is based on the Junior design so i would stay away.

We bought the Exolva 2 3 Isofix as it came out top in the tests, cost £90 but thats nothing if you have a crash and it protects your child.

If anybody wants to look at the 07 Which report you can PM me

You honestly can't see a difference? The base on the Rally Sport looks twice as thick as the junior to start with....

This isn't the junior though. Do Which have any reviews on this seat? As I think it's really unfair to vote cold on this because a different model wasn't considered any good! :-(
#19
The Junior and rally sports are bascially the same seats, just different padding and colours, you can see clearly in the pictures, left if Junior, Right is Rally sport not alot in it

The base is a lot bigger & there's lots more padding as you said - doesn't more padding = more protection?

No it does not, if you look at the Britax Evolva you will see the headrest wraps closely around the head and the side of the seat is deep and also close to the child ,this will stop the child's head and body moving so much in a accident , the Graco dosent offer much protection on the head and side area as it too wide , this is why the Britax scores high in the crash tests

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41ItZecZc7L._SX315_SY375_.jpg
#22
I haven't even mentioned anything about the Britax seat.

You voted this cold because another Graco seat has poor reviews when they're different seats. This is a good price for this seat. All but two of the rallysport seats on the Mothercare site are £70.
#23
Its not a different seat, its the same seat, the rally sport just has a different padded base and padded arm rests, im sure they will really help in a accident, i mentioned the Britax so you can compare the difference in the protection, all the extra padding on the Graco does is make it more comfy for the child, it does not offer and added protection in a crash at all

When kids lives are at risk you get the safest seat possible , the Graco is not a safe seat.

Shame cos they look so cute especially one of each :-D

Sadiebabes - I haven't voted hot or cold on this one. You posted this in good faith - you weren't to know about the safety aspects of this. The Graco Junior won awards from Mother & Baby Mag but they were looking at its practical use rather than safety. The safety standards for car seats are an absolute joke......

From a safety aspect - I'm with Deano on this one - the seats may be cosmetically different but the "carcass" looks the same design.

This is what Which said in 2005

child car seats still on sale
02 June 2005

Ten inferior child car seats, exposed by Which? up to two years ago, are still on sale.

Mamas & Papas supplies three of the poorest - the Navetta Carry Cot, the Elan and the Passaggio. Britax manufactures three - Cruiser Plus, Ranger and Trio. The others to avoid are Concord Trimax X-Line, Meggy Kombi, Storchenmühle Starlight SP and Graco Junior Plus.

These seats all meet current minimum legal standards1, but either won't offer adequate protection in a severe crash, or are difficult to install, which increases the risk of injury in an accident.

To meet the standard, seats must withstand a 30mph crash, without a child sustaining serious injury. Which? uses EuroNCAP crash test conditions, with a front-crash test at about 40mph and also a side-impact test.

Malcolm Coles, editor, Which?, says:

"We're very disappointed that some of the seats we exposed as inadequate as long as two years ago are still on sale.

"We think simply making child car seats safe enough to pass the minimum safety test is downright irresponsible. We asked the manufacturers why they still sell these inferior seats, but some just hid behind the regulations, while others failed to answer our questions."

But it is a different seat & if it was truly unsafe then they wouldn't be allowed to sell it... How can you compare a £40 seat to a £130+ one? And why do Mothercare sell 5 different styles of the RallySport for £70?

I'll say it again, this is a good price for this seat - if it can be found cheaper then cold votes are expected - but you're comparing it with a) a different Graco seat & b) a seat more than 3 times it's cost.

It has to pass minumum safety tests which arent very good and do not include side impact, the Which tests are alot more stirict, they crash at higher speeds and include side impact.

When a childs life is at stake money dosent come into it but safety does.
banned#28
Thanks for the deal, I bought seven for my people carrier that I use to collect illegal immigrants in. Some people say I have a strange hobby, but it suits me. These will help inflict extreme discomfort and safety really isn't an issue, as chips on the immigrants don't affect the value, in fact they add about 1.20 a portion. Just goes to show, one deal is good for one and bad for another.

@ gari... is there a review for this exact seat?

@ deanos... Why only aswer half of my quote?

@ JD... lolol - I'm a bad mother JD - I bought this "death trap" for my daughter this afternoon... Someone call social services...

The Graco seat is the same carcas its the same seat , the Britax seat is not 3x the price its £45 at Mothercare

.


I've had a quick look but can't find one. About the only people who do safety reviews are Which and I can't find anything on their site about this particular seat. If you car has side safety curtains them I presume this would make up for the poor side protection of the seat.

I may be a bit over-zealous about this but I know someone with children involved in a side impact crash. Its not something you'd wish on anyone...
#32
I also bought 2 "Britax Evolva 2/3" seats because of their superior safety rating. The non isofix ones can be bought from Costco for under £40. The Which report does suggest the Isofix are slightly better.
#33
deanos - that's not the seat in the picture you posted.

gari189 - I understand & think it's nice that you care about it but if it was so bad why would Mothercare stock 7/8 different types of this exact seat?

They are allowed to as they pass minimum safe try tests, the which tests are more stringent and include side impact tests and they crash at higher speeds compared to the minimum tests required by law.

I'm not having a go at you, i just want kids to be safe, my friend is a fireman and poor designed seats have caused fatalities he has attended, surely you want the safest seat for your child you can buy ?

isofix is only better if your car has isofix points. and a fix point should be better than a seatbelt, but only if the seat has a system of absorbing some shock like a seatbelt would.
[helper]#37
I bought the Isofix ones. The advantage is that when the kids are not in the car, if you crash you don't get killed by childs car seat. As with the non-isofix seats its still the seat belt that restrains the child.

You have to be careful with the Evolva seat though (including isofix). I found the headrest pinched the seatbelt at the top of the belt which would prevent the belt retracting. Fortunately our rear seats could be moved away from the sides by removing the middle seat but check this if you are buying the Evolva.
