Brill will check my local tomorrow - was going to get it at £35 last week, fingers crossed!

What age/weight is this for?

I use one for my 3 year old if that helps, but all depends on weight of child my daughter is bigger

gutted! I bought one for £25 last week.

Got one of these a couple of weeks ago. Next to no padding on them. Going to take it back. Good price but not very good.

No they arnt very padded, but they are supposed to be for the older children though, ive found most of the booster seats to be them same whilst i was shopping for one, i paid £35 for mine a few months back cheapest i found

I was in Leyton london store at 20:30 today, they had a shelf full marked at £15

These have really bad safety reviews. May be cheap but not that great. We got rid of ours for that reason.

I don't really see how group 2/3 boosters can vary hugely in safety terms. They are mostly for ensuring the child is held in the right position for the adult seatbelt to work properly. The structural integrity of the seat is surely not that important - so long as it is strong enough to not deform and allow the child to come out of the belt in an accident.

A little more padding around the head may be helpful in side impact situations but these Gracos are not that bad - my parents have them in their car for taking the children. They are not as good for side padding as the Cybex ones we have in the outboard seats in our car but - but I don't feel they are dangerous.

Another consideration is that these are quite narrow. If you need to fit three abreast then that can be a big issue in a small car - better to have a lighter weight booster seat than no seat at all.

What does the Which report say that is so damning? I can't believe those money grabbing beggars would shell out for a full crash test.

I had this car seat a few years ago for my child and tbh there's not much support if you child falls asleep plus he was forever complaining about been uncomfortable as there's no padded or cushion. It does keep them in line with the seat belt etc when they are awake. Make sure you also check it with your car because it doesn't seem to fit snug with the car seats which screams danger to me straight away.

I would agree they are very poor in the padding department. But I guess the fit is down to what car you have. Different cars fit different seats and even then there is no rhyme or reason about which seat will fit which car and which seats will work alongside another. For example we have two Cybex seats, which are quite large, and a Britax (and rubbish quality in comparison), which is relatively small, in the middle. They are a tight fit but even though reaching the buckles is hard they work OK.

When we had a second car we got another Britax for that and so I tested that seat in our main car thinking that maybe because it was narrower we could have three Britaxes (even though they are rubbish in comparison to the Cybexes) abreast and it would be easier to buckle up the belts. Not a flipping chance. Because of the way the bottom bits of the Britaxes are, when there are two together there is no space to reach the buckles. I think it would be the same with any brand of seats, of the same pattern, next to each other. The only way to get it to work is to have two seats of one design outboard and a different shaped one in the middle. If they would fit I would have a seat like our Cybexes in the middle - but such a large seat would not work and so we are stuck with the Britax.

The Gracos are certainly not plush and I wouldn't choose them for myself. But I would commend them though because they are relatively narrow and three fit alongside in my parents car, which is a mark four Vauxhall Astra. I can't see how anyone could brand them as blatantly dangerous though. So long as the child is held in the right place for the adult seat belt to work they will be pretty much as safe as any other seat - the inherent safety of the car it is in is going to be a much bigger factor.

Actually I am really cheesed off about car seat safety. The car manufacturers make five seat "family" cars in which you can't fit three child seats in the back and car seat manufacturers don't make seats narrow enough to fit three abreast. Every day I see parents put their kids into cars with no seats at all - I presume because either they find the fitting of child seats too much of a nightmare - or they just don't give a crap.

It is a stupid situation. Car manufacturers should be forced to ensure that there is a safe child seat solution available for every seat in the cars that they make - if they can make a seat that will safely fit an adult then they should also make sure that there is a safe solution to convert them for the use of a child. It shouldn't be rocket science.

What a load of rubbish - as if the flimsy plastic and foam of any child seat is going to make much difference in a side impact. Like I said I bet they didn't do proper crash tests. Side airbags and steel door beams are going to make much more difference in a side-impact. Perhaps if you are very concerned you could have your kids wear body armour and full face crash helmets with neck restraints

that's your choice. if I read something like that there is no way im going to risk it with my child! Don't think there is any need for the sarcasm just because I don't want to risk my child sustaining serious injury!!

It's your choice. I have better car seats in my car than the Gracos, though my parents have them in theirs. Yes they aren't brilliant but at least they fit in unlike almost any others. I don't believe them to be inherently unsafe.

You should take any report in Which? with a huge dose of salt and the same for the marketing BS by childseat manufacturers. Most only make sure their seats pass the lamentable ECE R44 04 statutory test which only tests for frontal impact. If side impact protection is such an integral part of safety in high backed booster seats then why do even the very expensive seats only have plastic shells - why no steel frame or reinforced glass fibre?

I think the key for safety in side impacts is passive and active systems in the car itself. Before worrying about the safety of car seats you should worry about how safe your car is.

WTF?

Original Poster

For the people that are commenting on the saftey of this car seat, you coould also then argue the fact that children should not be allowed to travel on a bus, as they dont have car seats or seat belts. Theres many different points of view on this, there's no need to question peoples parenting or argue about it. If someone wants to buy this there parenting skills shouldn't be questioned.

May aswell say don't ever leave your house because its not safe

By the way loads left at £15 price in Asda carcroft Doncaster
