Thought this Group 1 / 2 / 3 Car Seat (ages 9mths - approx 11yrs) seemed great value for money at just £26.99 (plus £2.99 Del for orders under £49.99), it has excellent reviews (scoring 4.9 / 5 from 1999 reviewers), ideal for a spare to keep at the grandparents or to move on from a travel system seat when they outgrow it.

Comes in either Black / Red (on the link) or Black / Grey, I've had a good look around & can't see any group 1/2/3 group car seat as cheap as this, even Halfords essentials (which doesn't score as highly review wise) is only on offer from £40 to £35.
Complies with ECE R44/04 - check to make sure it will fit your car HERE

Suitable from 9 months and up, the Traffic SP car seat boasts side-impact protection and extra head support to keep your child as safe as possible in the event of a collision. A height-adjustable headrest provides extra support for older children.


Easily attached with your car's 3-point seat belt, the Traffic SP is simple and easy to install. The easy to adjust harnesses means little one is always secured correctly, with padded head, arm and seat supports to cushion and comfort your child.


As your child gets older, this car seat transforms into a high back booster seat, making this perfect for those fast growing kids. A lightweight frame makes this easy to switch between cars and the removable covers are hand washable and simple to take on and off.

I'd go second hand rear facing over this.

Says upto 11 year old, I'd like to see a child over 18 months even 12 months want to sit rear facing.

In Europe kids stay rear facing until 4 years old because it's so much safer..

Our daughter exceeded the rear facing height of our Maxi Cosi Axissfix by the time she was 16 months old. If I knew then what I know now I would have gone straight from her Pebble to a Joie Transcend for a fraction of the cost and for better protection.
We use the Britax Multitech for rear facing. My son managed to 4 and my daughter is comfortable in it now at three. Rear facing until as close to 4 as possible. I made the mistake of seeing the video of the dummy in a forward facing accident under age 4...
However we now have this in my parents' car for occasional use and it is great. The strap tightening is the easiest I've ever used. However for longer/regular journeys I'd go for a more padded one.

Same company, different seat:

which.co.uk/new…08/


I don’t think I want to take the risk
Seems a good deal for a spare seat. We got the evolva 123 for my sister in law's car on the odd occasion she has my daughter.

for the daily car we went for a stage 1 specific seat - figured that ages 1-4 were the most likely time she'd be sick in it/get bits of food stuck in the gaps etc, so didn't want one that lasted for years and years.

My little girl was infinitely happier when she was forward facing (she outgrew her Cabriofix after about 11months). Not wading into the argument about the rights and wrongs as it should all be personal choice but I will say the safest seat is one in a car that's not being driven in a way liable to be involved in an accident.
I'm all for safety and applaud those who can occupy a toddler to stay rear facing. My daughter is 7 and is still in a car seat in the rear. Where most of her school friends ride in the front seat and mostly no longer in any child seat.

How can you avoid being involved in an accident?
You can’t control other drivers.
You could be the safest driving miss daisy driver out there until Johnny Cum Quick comes round the corner sideways impressing the 15yr old girlfriend in his sported out 1.2 vauxhall nova listening to Blazin Squad on his 6x9 Halfords speaker set!
IMHO of course

That's a very tall 16 month old. The Axissfix isn't a very good seat as it only rear faces until 87cm. There are plenty of seats available from Britax, besafe etc that accommodate rear facing until 105cm or around 4 years.
These are far safer than any front facing seat and offer superior protection for your child.

The child might not want to be rear facing but at 18 months old why are you giving them the choice? Surely safety and keeping a child alive should be the priority?
In reality children don't know any different, if they've only ever been rear facing they're perfectly happy. I know a couple of six year olds who still rear face with no issues.
Ordered this last night but having put more thought into it and reading reviews I have cancelled.

One review that mentioned their child's head just flops forwards due to no recline and being very upright put me in doubt especially as my child loves her short naps to and from the nursery.

I have this one and as mentioned above my daughters head droops forward when she starts sleeping. I bought a cybex soultion q3-fix which is much better and she sleeps with head properly resting on the seat. I still use the kiddicare in the wife's car which is only used for short runs.

Not to be too pedantic but you'll notice I never said 'avoid'. I said 'driving in a way liable to be involved in an accident'. You can avoid braking needlessly hard and late, or driving up someone's backside. There's two for starters; add in your (perhaps stereotyping? ;)) example for a third.

Can't legislate for idiots out there but there's no need to drive like Miss Daisy either, just drive appropriately for the conditions and your passengers.

If I'm driving on 30/40mph built up roads with the bairn in the back of the family wagon, I'll drive differently to when I'm out for a b-road blast in the roadster on my own.

That's my thought too! In some cases parents know best, a four year old won't necessarily understand what internal decapitation means... Each to their own though.

when your child has physically thrown up because they have been crying so much as the result of being rearward facing you eventually give up and swap the seat round.

If they don't scream there head off then by all means keep rearward facing.

Still, you're only responsible for driving your car and no one else's therefore the safest seat is always one that's rear facing. You may never be in an accident but then again you could be the unlucky and have a number of them.

FYI, no judgment since it is the parent's choice but if you'd have stuck it out, your daughter would have gotten used to it. It's just having to deal with the crying & tantrums until then
This is a rebranded nania seat they do very poorly in crash tests. The legal minimum requirements is quite low. Better to get one that well exceeds the minimum such as maxi cosi, Britax. cybex etc

Well at least if they're forward facing they won't scream their head off. Their head will probably fall off in a crash, but at least they will have been quiet.

If you're driving at 40mph, you can be doing everything right and still be unfortunate enough to have a head on with a van that happens to be on the wrong side of the road. In that scenario a forward facing toddler is almost certainly dead or paralysed. A rear facing one is likely to walk away with minor injuries.
There is nothing you can do to avoid being involved in that sort of accident, and in the unfortunate event that it does I know which way I would want my children to be facing.

​agreed a toddler doesn't like a lot of things! Broken biscuits, naps but when it comes to safety you wouldn't let them play on the road just because they wouldn't like it if you stayed firm about it not being safe why would you approach a car seat any differently?
I totally understand that as they get older the infant carrier doesn't suit them but it's the seat not that it is rear facing. Infant carriers are very enclosed, restrict their view and are too low down to satisfy a growing babies curiosity. They get bored and annoyed.
I would recommend anyone who thinks upgrading to forward facing will solve these issues to buy a seat that can be fitted both forward and rear facing and try it rear facing first. They are much more comfortable in the bigger seat, can see out the rear window and if fitted behind the passenger seat they can see the driver as the sides are lower.
You might be surprised.

My 5 year old is in a rear facing seat, she never questions it being rear facing despite having an older brother and sister who forward face and a whole class full of peers at school who are either on a high backed booster or a backless one (there are a good number who have a backless booster unfortunately)

You could call people names and remain ignorant, or you could say "thanks for the advice, people who've thought about this".
