People aren't still putting their kids in these, are they? We know they're not at safe as a car seat. Sorry OP Cold from me, it's not a good buy (unless it's for the cinema / non-car use, then yes, awesome)

What exceptional measurements are you referring to? Yes I'm well aware that seatbelts are subjected to much higher weight limits in crash testing, but having contacted the car seat manufacturer and been told not to use above their tested weight limit, that's advice we decided to follow. I know they're only covering their own a**e but we're happy with that decision. The 'bigger' manufacturers, such as britax, joie, BeSafe, maxi cosi, cybex etc do test above and beyond minimum standards, but unfortunately there's also a lot of manufacturers out there that don't. What I'm suggesting is well above any laws or guidance - the booster in question can legally be used from 15kg, which is unthinkable! Newer models, along with the higher minimum weight, also have a minimum height, both of which are too low IMO. It doesn't help that many car seat manufacturers advertise hbb from 3 years of age - no 3 year old would be safe on a hbb. I did not at any point state that a backless booster is safer than a hbb. I was merely pointing out that in some circumstances backless boosters have a place. If sitting 3 children in one row it is often difficult in many cars to fit 3 full size car seats. In those instances, an older, heavier child will be better off on a belt positioning booster in the centre than without any sort of seat (as the law currently allows). By the time my daughter is too tall for her current booster I'm hoping that she won't need a booster of any kind, but I'll assess that situation when the time comes.
Some of what you say is accurate and some is your interpretation based purely on your own children’s weights and size. I am not going to to doubt or question those measurements, but they are quite exceptional. To then make a statement that those of us that call these plastic booster cushions dangerous are wrong is both irresponsible and misleading to the general population who might read your comments. The laws and guidance exist for a reason. Be practical and think about what you are saying. A 38kg can and will be safely restrained by a car seatbelt that’s tested up to several hundreds of kilos. The position of the belt which meanly concerns safety is primarily the neck. I would personally feel that a child of just over 36kg is far safer in a HBB giving correct positing and side impact protection to the head than being sat what is effectively a plastic box. Most, if not all seats are tested to well in excess of the minimum safety standard. Some just about pass and some pass by significant margin. If you think a booster cushion is safer than a HBB in any situation then I suggest you contact ROSPA and ask to watch some of their (horrific) crash test videos.
They are actually for my 2 Labrador’s so they can see above the windows.
Everybody saying they're dangerous and should be banned, or are illegal and shouldn't be sold... you're wrong! Yes, they shouldn't be used from 15kg like ecer44/04 backless boosters are unfortunately certified for (my youngest was 15kg before he even hit 18months!), but those designed & certified after Feb 2017 are for children over 125cm & 22kg which although still not ideal is a vast improvement! My daughter is 9 years old, over 145cm tall and about 38kg so technically too heavy for a r44/04 hbb. We've moved her into a r129 hbb which has no weight limit but has a 150cm height limit. She'll hit that height limit in the next few months but still won't fit an adult seatbelt well so we'll move her to a backless booster (not this one btw as it looks awful!). Legally she could be without any sort of seat (as could my 135cm 7 year old), but a backless booster will do what it needs to do and position the belt safely to avoid it causing internal damage in an accident.
Very misleading selling .. shame on you halfords

That's not bad, but note these are not proper ISOFIX connectors, these hooks are mainly there to stop an empty seat from moving around in the car, it won't help much in an accident (the seat belt does the work). I have a very similar seat (paid about the same) with the hooks which are a bit of a pain to remove. The seat with solid metal ISOFIX connectors are the ones that cost a lot more.
We've just got two of these for the kids. It's a proper booster seat with a back, and has isofix. Good brand as well £40. https://www.johnlewis.com/joie-baby-trillo-group-2-3-high-back-booster-car-seat-ember/p4071162?s_share=jlappdroid
Also useful as everyday seat if hbb outgrown but 5 step test for using just car's seatbelt not passed.

Thanks for posting @Emandi not a bad price at all :)
Does that mean backless booster seats will be illegal? No, it just means that new models of backless booster seats will ONLY be suitable for children taller than 125cm or weighing more than 22kg. The Department of Transport Government website confirms that the new rules don’t affect current models of backless boosters and booster seats.
I thought all car booster seats had to have a back on them now?
The boosters Asda have at the moment in their baby event are pretty comfy (according to my kids)
Can't help thinking that this will be incredibly uncomfortable, considering the thin sliver of cloth that sits on the seat base.

With them arms i doubt you'd find it hard to find someone lol
I would be wary about strapping the booster seat to a dining chair as shown in one of the images above. With a similar setup, our little one managed to push back with her legs on the dining table and tip the whole chair/seat assembly backwards. She threw-up straight after (shock?) and needed a trip to A&E to check for concussion. ...Nick B
Don’t forget Quidco. Just ordered mine. Had to stump up the delivery
how do you get the £15.95 with delivery ?
This chair is absolutely fantastic. Really portable and useful for when you're taking your infant out. Imo it is over-engineered for strength, as in an adult could stand on it and be supported. There is absolutely no play in the joints and the metal used is thick.
I was not referring at the OP, was referring at the manufacturer and seller, clearly misleading without actually lying. But thanks, yes, people will have a better idea what this is, I nearly jumped to get it as a car seat, luckily I read your description.
I have changed I don’t want anyone thinking these can be used in the car !
I think they should change the title. While is not misleading, most will associate a travel booster seat, with the ones to use in the car. I believe they've chosen the name in purpose.
Not to be used in a car, which these were originally designed for

I've got one of these as a spare they're okay. really basic but for the price that's to be expected. The reason I have it- is it was far cheaper to buy this and take it on the plane (for free) than rent one for two weeks whilst abroad...

I did it over chat. Refunded me the difference straight away. Very helpful service
Indeed. Though the head rest doesn't recline that much to really make a difference. Still an excellent seat and narrower than most.
Such a good price! I ordered last week when it dropped to £80 and that was a deal then, swiftly emailed mothercare customer services so hope they can refund the difference rather than I take the boxed unit back to store and reorder
I personally haven't come across a 2-3 with a seat recline option . The ones that I've seen that do recline are for the purpose of sitting against the vehicle seat correctly. This CYBEX seat has a head rest recline as per photo x

No!! Children must be secured in an age appropriate seat specifically designed for car use. The rules are much stricter than they used to be and the old block of polystyrene booster seats of my youth are no longer sufficient. And they're compulsory up to age 12 (judged by weight). The good news is that because the volumes are high you should be able to get a compliant seat for £50-£90, depending on how long you want it to fit the child.
