Voted cold because these shouldn't be legal without the back part - please don't buy one of these especially if you have a child under 6.this wouldn't save their life if you were to have an accident :-(

I think booster seats are for elevating your child so when you fasten them in the seatbelt fits over the shoulders and does not catch on around the neck . The safety issue you may have is strength of your seatbelt or maybe you have exposed springs in your back rest of your car.

I think these are great to keep as a spare for guests. Not suitable for very small children but great for 5+ on an occasional basis, or for older kids more regularly. Yes they lift the child to make the seatbelt fit over the chest rather than the neck, which is dangerous.

If a car hit you sideways and you had a 3-4 year old in this, they would have no protection for their head whatsoever. Each to their own, personally I would prefer to buy a seat with head protection that would give my child a better chance in an accident.

we bought one to actually use as a small booster seat when we are out at restaurants as our little one doesnt like to be in a ghi chair anymore...also gets used at home as she likes to be a big girl and sit on normal chair more and more Same price for very similar at Poundstretcher if you have one of them clsoer

It's not common sense at all, the point of a booster seat is to "elevate" so that it positions children in the correct place so that the lap and shoulder belt fit them properly. This is why high-back seats change into booster only mode when the child grows to a certain age - I know as I have 2 Maxi-Cosi Rodi seats in both of our cars....

To counter your side impact argument, there's no protection from a high-back booster over one of these if you were in a front/rear collision, so does that mean you would never take a child in a car in case you had a crash?

To say it "wouldn't save their life" is just scaremongering. If you had a side-impact they would get just as much whiplash in one of these than in a high-back seat, but their life wouldn't be at risk.

Why do you have the maxi cosi rodi seat if you think these are just as safe? The side protection isn't for whiplash, it's to protect the head from serious head injuries.

Last thing I'm going to say on this, it isn't scare mongering, it's simply letting people know that for a young child this isn't as safe as a seat with side protection, simple as.
