I bought this booster seat for my son from Halfords, he's only three and a half but is very tall for his age and was really cramped in even the largest 'baby car seat' - he had been sitting on his sister's Disney Princess booster seat which is an identical design, but in a not very boyish pink so I decided to look out for one of his own. It is a moulded plastic booster seat with hooks for the seat belt to hook around, this is a good idea if you're putting a little one on the booster seat as it prevents the nuisance of the seat belt chaffing their neck and becoming irritating for them. There is no padding, the Disney Cars decoration is on a fabric sheet which attaches to the booster seat with a strong velcro - this means it can be uncomfortable on longish journeys but is absolutely fine for David's little bottom on short runs round to the shop or for the school/nursery run. It doesn't slide around on the car seat and when David is strapped in with the seat belt I'm confident he's going to stay in one spot, the seat belt fits him perfectly despite his young age and if we were ever unlucky enough to be in a car accident I trust this seat to keep him as safe as possible. David loves the colours and design of the booster seat and I've never had a problem getting him to sit still in the car - unlike when he used to sit in his proper car seat and would wriggle his way out of the straps as quickly as possible due to being so uncomfortable! I paid less than 10 GBP for this booster seat when Halfords had their sale on and have been nothing but pleased with it. Obviously this is a Cars design but there are several others to choose from for girls and boys, all of the booster seats in this range are the same size with the same attributes - just the colour and characters are different so there's something for just about everyone!
I got this for my som when he was actually a little younger than 4, as he is way taller than average for his age we have to go by the height and weight regulations rather than age, so straight off this booster was great as the theme is a popular one with kids at the bottom end of the booster's age range. Okay, so a ten year old will be a bit embarrassed to have a Disney booster, but at this price you can afford to change them as their favourite characters change. Alternatively, if you don't want to shell out the money for a new one, this booster has the handy feature of a detachable seat pad - take it off and you have a much more macho, plain car seat for older kids. This feature is also a life saver with younger kids on long car journeys, when my son started using his he would forget to tell us he needed to stop for the toilet and have an accident. No problem, you can stick the fabric part in the washing machine and just give the plastic part a good wipe down! Okay the pad's not the thickest if you're planning on spending long periods of time in it, and the plastic is a bit cheap and tacky looking, but that makes it light and easily moved between different cars, and when you have more than on child that counts for a lot!
This is a wonderful little boaster car seat that as far as I am concerned is worth the money many times over.
My little boy has been using this seat for the last five months and he absolutely loves it. The bright colours are attractive to the eye and make a journey slightly more exciting for him rather than a boring trudge down the motorway.
The car seat is well made and has shown itself to be hardwearing as our children stand, kick and generally so not treat there surrounding well.
The seat is small enough to live in the boot of the car and be brought out when necessary and it is also light enough for our five year old to carry.
The car seat is wipe cleanable which has been proven as our children are prone to travel sickness.
In conclusion this car seat has proven to be hardwearing, comfortable and easy to install and carry.
The car seat is made of light weight plastic and is every colourful and pleasing to the eye.
I would recommend this car seat to anyone as my children have not only benefited from the above qualities but also incorporate it into imaginative games and play sessions using toy cars ect.
Keeping your child safe and strapped in whilst in the car is easier said than done when they reach that magic age where they have worked out how to undo the seatbelt all by themselves and you can't always keep an eye on them when you're driving and they are in the back. My son was a complete terror for this and nothing would convince him to keep his tiny little butt in the seat when mummy was driving and I had tried everything from shouting to bribery and was verging on buying industrial strength duck tape to keep him in place.
While browsing on Amazon one day I stumbled upon this Disney Cars booster seat for £23 and had a bit of a eureka moment. My son is a massive cars fan, his favourite character is Lightening McQueen, and when I bought him the Lightening bed set he began sleeping happily ever after in his own bed, so I thought that this would maybe have the same effect in the car and encourage him to stay in his own seat (I also found a matching seatbelt pad for £3 in Tesco)
Roll on 3 days later when the seat arrived and shorty was so excited when he saw it come out of the box. I explained to him that it was for in the car and that it was his new special big boy chair. So out we went together, put it in, clipped in the belt and went for a wee spin and he loved it. No trying to escape, no bouncing about the back, he just sat there happy as larry watching the world go by. Result!!! Granted this approach may not work for everyone but for me it was a winner.
I have had this seat now for 2 years and it for the money I paid it has been a bargain. And despite getting older my son still loves the novelty of his lightening seat. Another great feature is that the cover can be removed and washed, because as we all know kids can be very messy little gremlins and things don't stay clean for long. Also due to it being so lightweight it can easily be moved from car to car with no hassle at all.
Overall I highly recommend this product. Its design makes it far more appealing to younger children and the price isn't any higher than your ordinary plain booster seat. Any anything that encourages them to stay put in the car can only be a good thing.
Again this product was bought for my car when I have my little nephew.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
I got this for £20, though you can get it from £18-£25 depending on where you get it though I recommend getting it from Amazon as it is cheaper.
It's every child's favourite DISNEY CARS, so not only does it keep your child safe but my nephew always pretends he is 'racing' just like 'Lightning McQueen' so can keep your child entertained during car journeys.
Aimed at children from 4-11years old and between 15kg and 36kg (depending on their height lets you know whether they need it or not), as they are designed so the seatbelt is in the correct position to keep them safest.
Has a removable cushion so your child is comfy and doesn't feel like they are sitting on hard plastic like some of the cheaper seats, this is not the only positive of the removable cushion - we all know how much mess kids make when they eat in the car so all the crumbs and mess can be caught on the material and good news, it's machine washable!
WHY I LOVE IT
Firstly it is red, so goes nicely with my car and looks fashionable rather than the boring grey car seats you can get around.
Its small and compact, so it fits nicely in the boot when my nephew isn't in the car.
It doesn't slip forward while driving so my nephew doesn't end up with his bum behind it so keeps him comfy and quiet.
Although it may seem a bit pricey, it is essential to have a car seat if you are going to carry small children in your car and if it means saving your child's life - I'm sure £20 is not much to spare.
