its online £15 too
Online is £15 on the Asda direct section (not in groceries were it is still £25) but there is no click and collect so it would add £2.95 delivery.
Shocking that people would even consider using junk like this. Voted cold.

its not shocking.. this would have been tested and passed for safety.. yes it may not be as good as a car seats costing 100+ pounds but some people cant simply afford those prices!!
Are the graco ones reduced
Also great if you need an occasional seat, for example to go in Gran's car. We use one to cover us if one has to drop the kids off in one car, and the other picks them up in the other. Only happens once in a blue moon, and wouldn't want to spend another £200 on a couple of seats to cover the odd trip. As already stated, they have to make the minimum standards, so whilst they are never as good as some of the more expensive ones, they will do a basic job. Its also worth noting that some of the more expensive ones come out worse in testing too - check the Which reports! Hot from me.
Are these reduced further because the baby event has now finished? Any other bargains to be had?
good price, heat added
Just picked one up in Oxford. Quite a few bits an pieces reduced like the travel cot for £15 reduced from £25. Not everything was reduced though like bottles were still the same price as earlier in the baby event

Exactly!!!
Could anyone advise on the safety tests for this model? I'm looking to get a spare seat for my son.
Unlike the stage 0 (which tends to stay with baby) and the boosters (easily transferred and carried) I really think its useful to have a spare for stage 1 and at this price why not?!
bog standard ECE 44/04 safety tests are frontal impact at just 30mph and rear impact at 18mph!! basically as long as you never travel any faster than that your precious children will be fine. amazingly there is also no requirement for side impact testing. I don't think you can really put a price on your child's safety, even 'occasionally'

you don't need to be spending 100+ to get a car seat with side impact protection. Basically this seat works out less than 3 pounds for every year your child will use it - if you make the choice to have kids I'm sure you can splash out more than that to protect your precious child.
Yeah but does this one actually perform worse than a £100+ one??
Graco ones reduced also
we have this car seat its great

How much would one have to spend for the seat to be decent?

exactly! some people just seem to make the decision that there's more important things to spend their money on!
People are saying ok for a spare or occasional journey. It only takes one journey and an accident could happen, why take the chance with an inferior seat?

People spend hundreds on a pram, it won't save your childs life, potentially a car seat could.

It's not just about the cost of the seat. 'decent' would be a seat that at least mentioned some form of side impact protection or looked like it had some head protection. One of the reviewers actually sung the praises of this seat for being light enough that she could lift it out of the car with her 2 year old still in it... surely any seat that lightweight isn't going to prove very substantial in an accident at any sort of speed. I would not be happy with my child in a car seat that had only been tested to the minimum for ECE 44/04 regulations.
These are great for gran's car. We have been using them for 3 years now!!!!

Explain what you think ppl should buy then as you've just explained that all seats tested are no good at anything above tiny speeds?

We went for the M&P Prima Viaggio when our little un was born. It wasn't cheap, but it really lasted well and was very soft but super strong. My attitude is that as long as it has the relevant markings (CE, BS etc) its got to be better than nothing, but do your homework and read reviews
Simple logic. When it comes to buying safety products do buy cheap stuff that you cannot trust.
Let me ask? Do you buy cheap handbags or shoes for your self from Asda?

What a strange analogy.

Of course people buy cheap handbags and shoes from Asda.
firstly all carseats conform to the same basic safety standards graco and maxi cosi do more testing of their own,secondly what i find strange (again) is nobody mentions fitting! NOT ALL CAR SEATS FIT ALL CARS! have any one of you who have bought this seat checked once fitted for buckle crunch :-/ a badly fitted seat might aswell be no seat for what protection you will get in an impact, if you have buckle crunch in an impact the buckle will brake throwing the seat and your most precious out of your car! please please please check it fits thank you.
So many experts on here...such value.
I grew up travelling in the back of a ford escort van sat on the wheel arch and my brother sat on the other. the speed limits were the same then as they are today but I wouldn't dream of putting my 5 and 4 year old in the back of a van now. but come on. the seat is to sit in and make your child safer in a car. Thats it and the seat belts hold the child seat which is your saftey device.

poo
People assume just because kids are in a car seat they are safe. There are very differing levels of safety in relation to car seats. I am not saying dearer is better, but generally cheaper is worse! There are good and bad models in most brands, "Which" might be a good starting point for safety reviews. But it does take a bit of research to make sure what you are getting is as safe as possible (or you can afford)

I dont understand how people can spend £30 on Clarks shoes for example, that will only last weeks, and spend half of that on a car seat!

Have a look at this video, this is another issue in the UK, babies are moved into their next car seat far too soon!

There are hundreds of similar videos on youtube!
I just dont think its worth taking that risk!

no, I've just pointed out that those are the MINIMUM levels that a car seat has to pass in order to be sold here. some manufacturers seem to invest a lot more time, money and energy in ensuring that their seats would protect a child in the event of side impact or a crash at speeds higher than the minimum standard, so it's not ALL seats that are tested just to this low level.
if you dont like it, dont buy one!, i got one last year as a spare and im very happy with it
