I wonder if its got any padding on it... they always seem really hard, which is ok on short journeys but not so good when going on long distance drives... will go and have a look at them when they come in.

Slightly inappropriate name?

Saw these, pretty basic. Maybe good as a spare for emergencies. Wouldn't put my child on it, no side or head support and not enough padding.

Why would a booster seat have a head support, surely that would make it a car seat.

I flatly refuse to go out on my bicycle anymore because it has no windscreen, the sunroof wont close and the ash tray is useless.

This BOOSTER SEAT on the other hand looks pretty adequate!

A car seat in the 'Booster' range obviously includes the 'high backed booster seats'. These are obviously safer as they provide support and protection to the side of the body the head and neck. This cheap item above is the 'legal' minimum level of seat that can be used. My kids stayed in the highbacked versions until they were big enough to go without a car seat at all. I used one of these for the cinema.

It's your choice to ride a bicycle, it is not a child's choice to sit on a hard piece of plastic in the car!!! Ridiculous comment. I travel long journeys, I want my kids to be comfy (as I am sure do most people) or they will moan even more
To be honest anyone who is going to buy one of these for anything other than emergency use, is not concerned about child safety and comfort in the same way I or most people I know am, so you carry on.

If it's not acceptable why would it be acceptable to lower your standards in an emergency?

In an emergency, any seat would be better than no seat obviously. Whilst providing no protection or support to the child's body and head, it would ensure the seatbelt went across the thighs/legs instead of stomach. Recently I drove to hospital for an appointment but was unexpectedly admitted, I had the car seats in my car (I was expecting to collect my children from school) and therefore my husband and grandparents had no car seat for the children. This would have been acceptable for a short emergency or to travel to the other vehicle.
The whole point of an emergency, is that it is an unexpected event. It would ensure a legal requirement was met....

A legal requirement but not acceptable safety standards? I'm confused.
