.Graco Junior Maxi Group 2-3 Car Seat


Thanks to its height adjustable headrest that grows with your child, this totally flexible, fun car seat is easy to use with its intuitive red markers indicating exactly where the seat belt should go.


Group 2/3 is suitable from 4 years to around 12 years (15-36Kg). The Graco clever cup holder design saves the car from any spills whilst being handy for storing toys and food. The Junior Maxi car seat also converts into a booster seat suitable from 4-12 years (22-36Kg).



•Group 2-3 Car Seat
•Suitable from 4 to 12 years (approx 15-36Kg) as a car seat and (22-36Kg) as a booster seat
•High Back Boosters without Harness
•Forward Facing
•Attaches using a vehicle belt via clear routing system
•Restrains using a vehicle belt
•Red markers indicate where seat belt should go


To ensure maximum safety for children on car journeys, parents are legally required to fit their vehicles with car seats until their children reach the age of 12 or a height of 135cm.

As a result, parents will need to buy a number of car seats for their children at different stages of their life.

However, with a number of rules regarding the type of car seat children will need depending on their size and weight, it's important that parents identify which car seat suits the needs of their family most effectively

i got mine in asda hyson green but they will be in any asda that is got the baby event stock

The review from Which? is "Don't buy". They reserve this rating for the truly rubbish, or in this case, because of the lack of protection it offers.

Wow......great price for a great seat!

This is for Group 2/3 which don't usually recline.

Wow, can't believe the price! I bought the same seat in the candy colour for £45 reduced from halfords last year. Would recommend it, my daughter is quite tall so I've been using it since she was just over a yr old

I am sure folk are not saying they are not safe, just there are safer options out there, better seats with more protection etc and I do think there are much safer seats, certainly not for this price though.

Got one of these in a halfords glitch after buying one at full price for our 1st child. Still using them now and as safe as the seatbelt in your car as that is what restrains the kids

Nice of you to post your first and only comment in 2 1/2 years

If these are the same design as reviewed by Which (they were called Graco Junior Plus) - then they are safe as long as you don't have a side impact. If you have curtain airbags, then they may be worth the risk. If you don't. I'd get something else. We had these seats - I bought them because they had recommendations from Mother & Baby etc but when I saw the Which review I got something safer.......

If you watch the video on the page below - you'll see why side impact protection is important
which.co.uk/bab…ts/

Its possible this is an updated design but hopefully the video will help you know what to look for in a safer seat. Ultimately its up to you whether you buy it or not but a little bit of digging or a £1 trial of Which so that you can read the report won't don't any harm....

This is what Which said in their press release but this info is probably 5 or 6 years old now.....

Ten inferior child car seats exposed by Which? in the past two years are still on sale.

Mamas & Papas supplies three of the poorest - the Navetta Carry Cot, the Elan and the Passaggio - while Britax manufactures three - Cruiser Plus, Ranger and Trio. The others to avoid are Concord Trimax X-Line, Meggy Kombi, Storchenmühle Starlight SP and Graco Junior Plus.

These seats all meet current minimum legal standards but under Which's more stringent tests, were found either to offer inadequate protection in a severe crash, or are difficult to install, which increases the risk of injury in an accident. They are better than no seat at all, but if possible buy a safer seat as soon as you can.

To meet the standard, seats must withstand a 30mph crash, without a child sustaining serious injury. Which? uses EuroNCAP crash test conditions, with a front-crash test at about 40mph and also a side-impact test.

Which editor Malcolm Coles says:

'We're very disappointed that some of the seats we exposed as inadequate as long as two years ago are still on sale.

We think simply making child car seats safe enough to pass the minimum safety test is downright irresponsible.

We asked the manufacturers why they still sell these inferior seats, but some just hid behind the regulations, while others failed to answer our questions.'

Which do their own safety testing in a special lab, so I personally wouldn't buy a seat that they said wasn't up to scratch. Not worth the risk... I can't judge how a seat would protect in an accident just by looking at it.

Far too many variables to take into account.

Types/sizes of cars in an accident, the relative positions of any airbags, child height (and perhaps weight), seat belt position relative to car seat and of course speed and angle of impact.

It's impossible to test all combinations hence the minimum safety test.

Not saying Which are right or wrong but I have found them not to be even remotely objective on many occasions in the past.

The price of the car seat shouldn't put you off either, it's a molded bit of plastic and some fabric so it's never going to cost the earth to make.

It's very hard but try to imagine how it would react in your particular car with your child (size) in it - watch some crash test videos to see how the physics work.

I'm as tight as they come but I wouldnt put a price on my children's safety. Do your research before you choose. I personally would not buy this. Not voted either way.

I'm intrigued by the Which report... The Storchenmuhhle Starlight is classed as an 'inferior seat' but the Recaro Young Sport, which is the same seat (different branding) isn't mentioned as inferior!! Does anybody know why this is?

Still 25 in Chandler's Ford

I totally agree. Ive always gone for a seat with most protection. This usually equals a much higher price.

1 left in Portrack Stockton cheers op

25 in Edinburgh, the Asda at the Jewel, not 15

got one from asda sinfin, derby . there were still15 left if anybody wants one

voted hot, if unsafe big high street retailers would not be able to sell them, I bought this from asda at this price a few years ago my son and I loved it, and now older the back is off to use as a normal booster seat, it's a good price

There were 2 left in ASDA Leith Edinburgh.
Oddly there are more at the front but marked 25 pounds, the others at 15 pounds are at the rear of the store with baby stuff.
I was told its because they has a baby event and the left over of the baby event are at 15 pounds.
I have no idea how they can recognize the price as the bar-code is the same?

But I called ASDA customer service earlier, as I got one at 25 pounds in another store, the guy told me thay had 5 left at 15 pounds in Leith, when I went there, there were more then 5 at the front and all priced at 25 pounds.
4 were priced at 15 but in a different area?
Odd...

u cant link up 2 prices to the same barcode

spoke to head office, this is store specific up to store managers discreation if they have stock they want to get rid off.

Got one from wembley scans at £15 but shelf price in big is £25????

dam got this from mothercare just the otherweek for £25, at £15 its value for money

Priced at £25 and scanned at £25 in Birmingham - checked with customer services and they said the same, discount at managers discretion if they need to shift a lot of leftover stock. Brum don't have that many so no extra discount but still picked one up at £25 as we needed a new seat anyway

pritzz

Got one from wembley scans at £15 but shelf price in big is £25????



i went today and it scanned for 25 for me at wembley around 6pm

£15 in ipswich today, about 10 left on shelf

This is a booster seat so suitablefrom about 4 years of age. Got 1 in the last baby event at £12.50. I think they are a great seat for the price.

Warrington Birchwood Asda had loads of these last night at £15.

Just picked one up, still loads left in Asda Falkirk this morning. Had been looking to buy one soon so couldn't pass by this for £15!
