Having seen a britax video on these seats in a crash test I'm surprised they're even still on sale.

Indeed, but frozen dinner munchers living on benefits for 4 children don't really care.

High-back seats offer more protection so should be the seat of choice, however better to have a booster than nothing at all.

These seats are not safe at all...however, Halford are doing 20% off good car seats if you trade these boosters in. Worth buying just to get the Halfords discount!.... and stop these awful boosters being sold to the unsuspecting!

I have two Britax high-back seats in my car for my two girls, but it can be a pain if the kids need to travel in another car, especially a smaller one. These seats are great for an emergency but I wouldn't use them all the time.

I use them for the school run and for taking my neighbours boy to school. any longer journeys I use the high back. But these are really handy to have about.

Can't believe people still actually put their children in these.

Thank you HAYBR. I never knew that they where that dangerous. Yikes. We've got a 2 year old and 6 week old and they will 100% be going in a high back chair now when they get older.

They were going to ban them a while back but it's not happened yet

I cringe when I see booster seats pop up. They should be band! They offer absolutely no protection at all to a child using it. It simply puts the child in a higher seating position. A high back has side impact protection to protect the vital organs. They also have head protection to protect the head from injury.

I cringe when people drive cars without 20 air bags, mine has them everywhere, but its your choice if you risk side impact to your kids without them. Oh well its up to you.

Thread is hilarious! I wonder how we all survived through the decades of no seat belt laws, i remember parents sticking kids in boots while 12 adults crammed into a Princess.

I vote we bubble wrap all vehicles and no more than 3 cars on the road at any one time.

Lol safety laws are just a way to make more money

That is the whole point of a standard (non-high back) booster seat ...oO

I think they may have been referring to the 3rd comment down.....cringe

Has anyone got the barcode for this? I wanted to check my local store

Surely booster seats serve a purpose as a transition from high backed child seats to no child seat at all? I cannot see many 9-11 year olds wanting to have a high-back seat.

Also, a campaign called "Bin the booster seat" sounds like profiteering, and potentially irresponsible, when promoted by a manufacturer who sells child seats. Perhaps lobbying of parliament to change the rules would be more appropriate...if there is a genuine independent research driven motivation for doing so.

£2 perfect for the cinema went recently and was told they no longer have the kids boosters but I could bring my own this will do perfectly Thank You

I actually died when i was a child in the back seat of my dads car... That was all down to having one of these evil booster seats.

Oh yeah forgot we didn't have booster seats nor a seat belt... Oh hang on a minute, I've just remembered im not dead.

I'd rather leave my kids at home on their own that take them in a car with a "booster seat". If I have to take them I'll wrap them in cotton wool and bubble wrap and pop them in the back of the APP.

Ditto, I remember being in the back with not even a seatbelt to be seen with mum puffing away in the front with an inch of window open to let the smoke out! Oh yeah, a single mirror and the safety net of child locks were the safety features!

This product is meant for your child ;-)

Baffled by the 'it never did me any harm attitude'

I sometimes rode in the boot of an estate car with no seat let alone a seatbelt, but would I do this with my kids? Never. Safety laws and standards are there for a reason, to keep your children as safe as they can possibly be.

Ps, My 4 year old has only recently moved to a forward facing seat and my almost 2 year old will also be the same. Google 'rear facing the way forward' if you are interested in finding out more about extended rear facing car seats.

Anyway, as a booster cushion £2 is definitely cheap, but I'd only let my kids use one if there was no other alternative.

Problem with that argument is that you are using a single personal example to validate your supposition. To counter it, my two childhood friends (twins) died in a car crash, both in the back seats without a seat belt. Tragic and scarred me; but again that means very little. What you need is evidence. There is reasonable data floating about supporting child restraints against just seat belts. This ,for example, is a cohort study from the US. Sled tests as early as 1986 showed the benefits (Kahane CJ An Evaluation of Child Passenger Safety: The Effectiveness and Benefits of Safety Seats Washington, DC US Dept of Transportation1986;DOT-HS-806-890). I don't have a link to it though.

The only counter research was from Levitt SD, published in some odd paper and later refuted with good evidence. So as far we go with evidence, car seats are better than seat belts in children.

Then all you need to do is look at Volvo's full seat vs booster testing to understand how little protection the booster's provide. You will get people saying " it is ok to use it for short trips, but not for long trips". But then the car that decides to crash into you does not discriminate whether you are on a school run or driving up to Scotland.

Bargain price and to be honest I once bought one of these from Halfords for £5. Sat my son in it and going around a bend scared me with the amount of lateral movement in my son's torso (absolutely no support), so it went straight into the bin. But people are free to choose and spend their money as they wish. It is not for me to judge.

How am I silencing anyone by making a flippant remark?

Who are you to say what is said on here is accurate and truthful?

I'm sure you noticed that the YouTube video was made by a car seat manufacturer, don't you?

i know a lot of people that need these, mainly drivers.

Now .... forgive me for being sceptical here, but I'm pretty sure, no I'd go as far as saying I'm definitely sure, that if these weren't deemed safe - or they indeed did chop your kids' heads off or sliced them in two or whatever else the BBC or media has somehow managed to convince you to believe (I tend to go by this old fashioned thing called 'facts') then they wouldn't be on sale, or at least not by a "trusting conglomerate" as Tesco. End of.

​No doubt the same people who moved their babies from rear facing at 7 months and weighing only 10kg thought they were right. But the recent law change to rear face until at least 16kgs suggests they were wrong. why wait for the law. Use your brain and judge what is safest for your child.

​p.s The fact they are selling these off so cheap may suggest that there will be no market for them soon....

It used to be like that decades ago?

I will never risk my child's life just for £2. These are so dangerous and I'm shocked as to why they're not banned yet. Please please do not buy!

Never read the mail and never would. However I would never put my children on these or take another child on one. However short the journey accidents happen. A decent high backed seat cost less than most of the people that buy these useless injury traps spend in fags, booze and mobile phones.

Took one of these on holiday and at the end just left it in the car. Far cheaper than hiring a seat with the car.

Also if everyone is that concerned with safety, get a roll cage fitted, 5 point harness system and place everyone in helmets and neck braces. Failing that buy a tank, it saves on parking fines and traffic jams too. Bubble wrap Britain....
