    We went for the Britax one. Those Graco ones are always in the Asda babies event so they must be poo.

    It was the Graco Junior Plus which was slated. Of course Graco may have got round this problem by simply renaming the seat.........I think the main danger of this seat was due to side impact. If your car has side airbag curtains then its probably okay.

    We had the Graco Junior Plus but changed them when I saw the reviews - they are practical seats but that doesn't mean they are safe.

    i think you can see that the side head protection and body is less on the graco?

    thank you so much!!! i always cringe when i see the graco ones on special offer @ asda and people rushing out to buy them cause they are the cheapest in town, as you have pointed out you can get a much better one for hardly anymore money, is always worth doing a little investigation before rushing out to buy something like this it might save your childs life one day!

    we have 2 of the britax ones in our car plus a maxi cosi, you only have to examine the graco one to realise there is hardly anything to it!

    no i didnt see it but i dont think graco is a good make, and i saw what which said that they were disappointed graco were still selling them 2 years after they reported how bad they were...
    i am always disappointed when i see mums with graco pushchairs for a newborn-my neice who worked in toysus tried to tell me they are the best make you can buy lol
    naturally tho if they trust graco for their first pushchair then it follows they will buy the carseats?
    grrrrrr
