  • yeah i thought that this was the old style of booster because you need the full restraints type. Should be tested more thoroughly before being put on the market

  • these little booster seats don’t comply with Australian standards anyway. Our kids are in the proper high back booster seats recommended by the RTA until they are the proper height they are supposed to be-much to the dismay of our children!

  • Regardless of brand I have never liked this type of booster seat. In a case of sudden need to brake, they can move about on the car seat….especially if the child isn’t heavy enough to hold it down.

  • Wow, seriously, return for a full refund. Would it not be easier to hand out stickers for customers. Make them available at baby stores or where ever this seat is sold. They clearly have the stickers that should have been placed on the seats, Makes a lot more sense to me. Surely this is a simple solution.


    • Yes, I’m with you on that ! Also less wasteful !
