You can get a decent Britax for £30, wouldn't trust this cheap Argos one at all

loads of offers if you shop around.

I picked up 2 Maxi Cosi Rodi XR seats for £55 each (normally over £100+ each) from Amazon for when our youngest is a bit older and has outgrown the Maxi Cosi Priori XP's

Already have 2, but can't go wrong with them - excellent seats.

Just shop around and go for the best you can afford - don't scrimp when it comes to a childs safety...

Pish!!

All child seats sold by registered/trademarked companies have to conform to United Nations standard Regulation 44.03 or 44.04, which means the seats have gone under stringent testing, and the reviews say a lot too, and they are pretty favorable.

Nope its not Pish !!

They have passed a MINIMUM safety test that's pretty outdated

Are the reviews on Argos from experts that have crash tested , nope

Have a read >

All seats sold in the UK must meet the test requirements of the … All seats sold in the UK must meet the test requirements of the compulsory standard ECE R44/04. This simulates a low-speed crash test at the front of the vehicle, equivalent to around 30mph, without a child sustaining serious injury. But beware – the test is done on a test bench and there's no compulsory side-impact test, or ease of use assessment for child car seats.Which? uses far more stringent standards than this. Our crash tests are derived from Euro NCAP – which carries out crash testing on behalf of European consumers and shows how well cars protect occupants in severe accidents. Our testing does a similar thing for child seats and more accurately reflects what happens in real crashes than the legal minimum test. Which? tests harder, so you can buy better.

Furry muff, but find me a review of this seat where testing has been carried out by Which? that says not to buy this for safety reasons!!? Or conversely, reviews of other more expensive seats mentioned above that say buy this over cheaper options, because being more expensive mean that are more safe(r)! Aha!!

As for user reviews, yes, I do put a lot of stock in real time user reviews, by people that use these products day in and day out, with no biased towards any affiliated companies, manufacturers or suppliers, they bought the product based on price, and the fact they have to meet a minimum standard of SAFETY, if they say their children are comfortable and appear safe in these types of seats and no official Which? type reviews can provide evidence to the contrary then I will listen to the masses!

Nope im not saying more expensive seats are better, but the Britax ones that are around £30 come top in the Which tests, £8 is sod all to have a seat that's been tested more rigrousley don't you think

Low impact tests are the only worthwhile ones - having seen he outcome of highspeed collision on the average family car I have no faith in a child car seat.

It's like the reserve chute or a bullet proof vest - the item of last resort. You don't want to crash but if you do then 30 mph or less is the preferred option.

No its not, and I kind of agree with you, but despite the rather amusingly flipant comments of a few above, this seat was suggested for a mother in law to use the odd time(i think), and while people are trying to scrimp and save, £8 is still £8. I do agree with your comments about a more in depth test, that there should be just ONE standard test for seats sold in the UK, that includes a more rigorous test than the one required by EU law, but I think that would encroach on european trading laws, as it would suggest that if it has not been tested in the UK that it could not be sold in the UK despite originating the EU.

I'm with you, it's shocking the 'Snobbery' that people have with these items, it's the same every time someone posts them.

The bottom line is your SEATBELT and not the seat is what saves the kids. It's different with the four point seats, there it does make a difference, but with these booster seats its the angle at which the belt comes over the kids sholder thats important. If that hight can be adjusted then it doesn't matter what the make or cost. If it isn't adjustable then make sure you buy one that fits your kids hight.

Simple really.

I'm with ciaran4174 on this. Its only a glorified booster cushion, I believe, seeing as it doesn't have its own straps and buckles etc.

Its just not just the seatbelt that's important, its the headrest and side support

If you look at a britax you will see the head support and side support is very close to the body this prevents the kid being thrown around and the head hitting the side of the car and causing head/brain damage , so it not just the seatbelt that's important

Look at the Which video that explains it alot better and you will see what i mean
