Are the good? Never heard of this company, so wondering.
Argos brand. I value my kids more.
It’s not something I would put my children in. It’s an unbranded seat, made cheaply in China to the basic R44/04 standards (this is the standard to which all European seats are manufactured and tested, but it really is the bare minimum consisting of a frontal collision into a stationary object at 30mph and a rear impact collision at 18mph. There is no side impact test) and isn’t a good secure fit in most cars.

My main concern about any type of seat with these individually adjustable harness ‘toggles’ is that the only thing holding the harness behind the seat is a small metal tab. In crashes at higher speeds than the fairly low speeds that seats are tested at the harness can just rip through the flimsy plastic back of the seat and the whole thing falls apart. This is even more of a risk with this type of 1-2-3 seat - a lot of parents don’t realise that you have to stop using the harness once the child reaches 18kg, and with a child that’s too heavy for the harness the risk of it ripping apart the back of the seat is even greater.

Stick to branded seats from big manufacturers who do in-house testing at their own facilities to ensure their seats far exceed the minimum safety standards.

No, not good. See my reply above. This company simply buy the seat from a generic manufacturer in China and stick their own cover on it.
Have a look at the Ferrari one at Dunelm someone has posted.
Same issue, the Ferrari one is exactly the same type of cheap seat as this one.
