8 still on the shelf in altrincham asda today. Good price for britax.

be wary of new law as of 4th April up to 18 months have to sit backwards now plus there's a minimum weight before can sit forwards although this is too big for younger children anyhow.

actually its children up to 15 mths...

this seat is suitable for children 4yrs and above x
very good buy as a spare x

This isn't bad for the money, but the padding does come off through use.

Voting cold purely because side impact protection on these is garbage.

Good price we have one of these - easy to move between cars nice comfy seat

must travel in a rear-facing (or ‘i-Size’) car seat. Which car seat your child uses will depend on how tall they are.

Children over 15 months

Children must normally use a child car seat until they’re 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first.

Use a car seat that’s right for the child’s weight.

Child’s weightCar seat9kg to 15kgForward or rear-facing baby seat15kg to 18kgBooster seat, forward or rear-facing baby seat18kg to 22kgBooster seatOver 22kgBooster seat or booster cushion

Only EU-approved child car seats can be used in the UK. These have a label showing a capital ‘E’ in a circle.

it fails to protect the child sufficiently in a front end collision, with the child being exposed to such high loads the seat only just avoids the Don't Buy status.

Buying it from Amazon for £30 means you care more for your children.

It has good reviews on Amazon, Mothercare, Mumsnet and Kiddicare, and the (one) review on Which? is from a mum who doesn't agree with it's low rating. At the end of the day a high backed booster with side protection is going to be safer than a booster seat, which is legal to use from roughly 4 (though it's weight dependent) and at £18 it's not going to break the bank. I don't like the suggestion that should you buy this you're a bad parent or you're spending the money on more frivolous items (as if our child's safety is somehow lesser than this).

I'm looking to buy a car seat for our 2nd car, for the school run, my 4 year old has been in a Mamas and Papas 1-2-3 since she was 9 months old, it cost £150, and we're on the third one as the safety clip has broken twice (it's now on a seatbelt not a harness but I won't use it with my soon to be born 2nd child) I've lost all confidence in Mamas and Papas items now as the £50 travel stroller buckled after little use and the M&P travel cot is an absolute nightmare too.

If this Britax is available in my local Asda, I'm going to buy two!

My son is still in his Britax Safefix plus car seat, which was the best part of £200. I agree this must be safer than a normal booster seat that offers no side impact protection, I played around with the one out on display and it seemed good quality (like his current Britax) and it had an award sticker on the front from some website.

The store was an ASDA home, it doesn't sell food just home/clothes goods. Currently £24 ASDA online (20% off)

My understanding is that it is a guideline not a law. Obviously we assume guidelines are researched and have the safety of our children in mind, so worth considering very carefully. But it's not law, so you can't get stopped and prosecuted for not following it.

Depends on age I suppose but 3 pont harness are much safer for small children.

Hiya, we took it into Mamas & Papas and they were incredibly rude, said they didn't make the car seat (it had the M&P branding on the side!) they said there was nothing they could do and basically made us feel like dirt even though we'd spent over £1000 on nursery items from them in the six months previous. Turns out the car seat we bought was made by M&P but sold in Argos so we took it back to Argos, no box, no receipt, and they were brilliant, replaced it there and then with an apology and that's why I now shop in Argos and not Mamas & Papas

To all -- I went to my local Asda Living (Altrincham Retail Park) and they had 2 left, so I bought 1 for my 2nd car and left the other on the shelf, used it this morning for the nursery run, my 4 year old likes it, it's comfortable, smart and she has head and side protection, much better than the booster seat I'd originally planned to use (which is now relegated to a holiday car seat). I highly recommend it at the price.

25 in asda living in rotherham today, still bought one tho!

This is how u feel about toys r us I no refuse to shop there! We took the seat back with receipt (only bought 9 months previous) and literally were treated like trash. She said firstly it's been used and is 9 months old nothing we can do. After considerable arguing she took it in the back and hammered the clip back on and tried to send us home. I was absolutely fuming how can a store person think they have the right to fix something so important that could be the difference between life and death for a toddler. After alot more arguing eventually they offered a credit note. Still annoyed about it one month on!
