  • How do these items, that are for kids, even make it onto our shelves to be sold when they don’t meet basic safety standards

  • I have never heard of that brand of baby seat. I wonder whether it is manufactured in Aust. or overseas. How did it manage to pass Australian Safety Standards in the beginning or is it only a faulty batch. One company in Aust. quality checks its Babyseats etc
