My daughter has had a couple of Disney Princess booster seats - she regularly travels in my mums car, plus her uncle ferries her around sometimes so in her short life she's had an array of car seats. Her current booster seat is twelves months old and I bought it in Halfords, where a selection of these very basic car seats are stocked. She chose her own, it was a toss up between this one and a Hello Kitty seat but she stayed with tradition and chose to park her bum on the Princesses.
It's a moulded plastic seat, exactly as you can see in the photo above. There's no padding on the seat whatsoever so it wouldn't be very comfortable for a long journey, but the seat is shaped to provide a reasonably snug place for the bottom to rest if we're just driving to the supermarket or the park. The Princess design is printed on a sheet of fabric, this doesn't provide any padding as although it's quite thick the material has a tough feel - it's useful in that if the seat has been kept in a hot car during the summer your child won't find it too hot to sit on, but really that's the only use and if it was included in the design to make the booster seat more comfortable than it was a bit of a fail in all honesty.
The hooks at the back of the seat are for positioning the seat belt, and these actually work really well. Hollie is quite small for her age and ensuring the belt is underneath the hooks I can see she's well protected in case we were in an accident, but this also stops the belt rubbing under her chin and keeps it more comfortably across her chest. Her brother is three and we've recently bought him the same car seat with a more laddish design, he's almost as tall as Hollie so we hook his belt too which works equally well - they've traveled on each others boosters seats now they have the same ones and David fits just nicely in the Princess seat so it's definitely a seat you can use for a wide range of ages.
It sits nicely on the seat and doesn't slide around even when I'm in the car on my own with no kids and the booster seats just left on the back seat, there are no grips and the bottom of the seat is smooth plastic so I assume it's the width of the seat that keeps it so stable. I've asked Hollie and she tells me she can't feel the seat moving as we're driving, I've certainly never seen it slipping or anything and am completely confident it's keeping her safe in the car.
I'd recommend it, but only if your child does relatively short journeys in the car. Ours is a daily booster seat but when we're traveling any distance we swap it over for plainly designed but much better padded seat which we bought from Kiddicare - the main reason we don't use this more comfortable one on a daily basis is due to the larger size of it, but also due to the fact that I find the seat belt hooks on the Princess one to be so useful. Hollie has never complained of being uncomfortable for the short journeys we do, but as mum I wouldn't particularly want her to undertake the trip from Birmingham to Llandudno on such a hard lump of plastic!
We paid £10 for this booster seat, but the price fluctuates regularly (and quite wildly) so it's worth shopping around - I've seen it slightly cheaper and much more expensive, I think I paid about the right price considering how basic it is.
After recently investing in a new car, me and my husband decided to swap cars (I decided!). He had to take the C4 saloon which I have been driving for a year while I take the tiny but new C2.For those of you that aren't aware, C2's are compact cars and only 3 doors, but having 2 children aged 4 and 6 I needed some effective car seats for the back. I looked at the larger boosters which have the backs but I saw these on offer right next to them for only £14 each in Asda.
I was dubious about whether or not booster seats would be suitable especially so for my youngest daughter, but after a quick bit of research found out that they were suitable from aged 4 and for groups 2 -3. The seats are suitable right up to aged 13 so as long as they don't get too worn I can certainly get my money's worth out of the value price!
The booster seats are as booster seats go relatively basic, and made out of a sturdy hard plastic base with a velcroed padded cushion. While the seat is cushioned, the cushion isn't actually too thick, and although my dainty little girls haven't moaned that they are uncomfy, we also don't travel for more than 10 or 15 minutes in this car, and so I can imagine for long distances, these wouldn't be comfy enough. The cushions are easy to remove and go through the wash absolutely fine, perfect for when they start to look a little grubby. I'm sure I remember reading on the packaging that they are meant to be washed with a damp cloth only, but ever one to defy instructions, I have put them through the wash on two separate occasions with no problem.
The cushions have various Disney princesses (Belle, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty) all over on a baby pink background and are ideal for girly girls, although I can't imagine that once they get to 7 - 8 they will want such a cushion on but we will see!
The one disadvantage with these seats (and it's more with booster seats in general), is that seatbelts cannot be clipped to one side out of the way and so we have found that they tend to dig into the neck a little, however we just bought some of the little padded cushions to stop this from happening. The seatbelts can be put through the guards which have low arm rests at the bottom, so they won't cut into the waist area. You can use the seats with lap belts as well as 3 point fasteners so they are perfect to have as a spare in the boot for when you have an extra child in the middle.
The chair is ideal for people with small cars like myself as I find big high backed boosters can take up a lot of room and when you are short of space in the back anyway these are perfect! Unlike the high backed boosters, these don't have cup holders that come out of the side, perhaps a little babyish for older children, but I would have been willing to pay a little extra for this.
3.5 stars, but I'll round up to 4.
Hi, i was needing a new car seat for my daughter because she was out growing her old car seat. I also needed to buy two as i needed one for my new car and my husbands. I have just passed my driving test!
As i needed to buy two car seats, i did a lot of research to find ones that were in my price range. Thats when i came across these adorable boaster seats on Asda's website. They were advertised at £14.99 each. I did not buy online as i go to asda every week for food shopping and did not want to pay for delivery.
I went to asda that week and bought them. The last 2 in the shop, that was lucky! I could not believe i got to for under £30.00. I am very happy with my bargains. I found asda to be the cheapest and other shops were sellling them up to £25.00 for one.
The car seat base is made of strong plastic, very hard wearing and should last my daughter a few years at least. The boaster has a padded cushion that has velcro to stick it to the boaster seat. Easy to remove and wash or clean with a damp cloth.
Any little girl would love this car seat and its baby pink in colour, My daughters fave colour. This is a real disney licenced product. Has three disney princess characters on the cushion, belle, cinderella and sleeping beauty.
Cushion can be washed at 30 degree wash. It easy to transfer from car to car and boast a child enough in the car so the seat belts not digging into there neck.
My daughter and myself love the boaster seat, its fun and cheap. I would recommend looking around to get the best price.
Like most girls my daughter age they are disney princess crazy, every christmas and birthdays its always disney princess toys, there bedrooms are disney princess so are there booster seats.
My daughters have grown out of the baby seats now and i was on the search for a good booster seat that was cheap. I came across the disney princess boosters in tescos for only £12.99 each perfect. They had boys ones in disney cars and pirates but only the princess one for girls.
They are very light weight making them portable, we have always had a carry on transferring heavy big baby seats over to dads car back to mines so these booster were going to make life easier.
They are baby pink all over, tough textured plastic with a disney princess pad on where bum should be parked. They have what looks like handles at the side but this is where the seat belt goes in front and hooks under the handles. My daughters felt very grown up sitting on these boosters. They are for age 3 years +. The padded seat pad is held on with velcro pads on the booster and the back of the pad, it has sleeping beauty, cinderella and belle on it.
Very cute and girly, my daughters could see out the window, they were comfortable even on long journeys.
As the seat belt fits them like an adult i got them seat belt pads disney princess of coarse from ebay to use along with the boosters these only cost £1.99 each if you are getting a booster i recommend these too they are padded and stop the seat belt digging into there necks.
Highly recommend the disney princess boosters fab.
My mum brought this Disney Princess Booster Seat for my 3 year old sister, she only got it because my dad had already brought her the Disney Cars one and my mum prefers her to have girly pink stuff. The picture on ours is a bit different from the one in the photo Dooyoo have got up, the seat is the same but the picture shows 3 of the Disney Princesses standing so that you can see all their dresses.
The booster seat is definitely very girly, it's pure pink and there's NOTHING a boy would like about it..... there's even a bit of sparkle in the hard plastic of the seat which I think looks brill!
The only bad thing about this booster seat is how hard it is, the cushion that has got the Princesses printed on is only very thin and I don't think this would be all that comfortable for my sister to sit on if we was going on a long journey. That's good in a way because at least it is made from something durable and not polystyrene like most cheaper booster seats, I always wonder how soft polystyrene is supposed to stop a kid from going ANYWHERE in an accident and I would rather my sister got a numb bum than was in any danger.
A good thing about this booster seat is that there are 2 cut outs at the back of the seat so you can push the seatbelt through then. That stops the belt rubbing at my sister's neck, she's still only 3 though so we also use a seatbelt adjuster to keep the belt a bit lower and on her chest instead of her neck.
This booster seat is suitable for kids who are 33lbs up to 79lbs, and that should take them from 4 - 12 years. Like I said, my sister is 3 so probably shouldn't actually be using this seat yet but we've got quite a few of these type of seats and most of them are suitable from 3 and I can't work out why this one isn't. You can tell she's secure in it and the way the seat is shaped it means she's not going to go flying out from under the seatbelt if we was ever in an accident.
The cloth cushion can be removed and washed in the washing machine, that's useful because my sister's booster seats always end up getting a bit grubby because of using them after she's been to the park and stuff like that. The cushion attaches to the booster seat with a very strong velcro, in the time she's had this seat the velcro is still in brill condition as well..... we just have to make sure we put it on and off when she's not looking because my mum is dreading her noticing the velcro and having that ripping sound as she's driving!
I definately recommend this booster seat, it looks wicked and will keep your young kids safe.
As soon as my daughter turned 4 she was desperate for a booster seat and as she's obsessed by Disney Princesses, this is the seat she begged us to buy.
The booster seat is made of hard pink plastic. It's very light as the plastic is hollow. It measures 16 inches wide, by 14 inches deep and about 9 inches high at it's max.
The seat is moulded so at the back it arches up into 2 wing-like curves. These act to hold the seatbelt in position and stop it slipping. The sides of the seat are also slightly moulded upwards, to keep your child in the middle of the seat and stop them sliding around.
The middle area of the plastic seat has 4 long thin velcro tabs attached to it, which hold a Disney Princess cover in position.
The cover is made of a very thin foam, with a top material cover decorated with pictures of Disney Princesses. Designs vary, but ours has Cinderella, Belle and Aurora, surrounded by tiaras and flowers. At the bottom, written in a romantic kind of typescript it says Royal Princess.
The cover is machine washable at 30 degrees.
To use this seat you place it on the seat of the car, sit you child in it and use the seatbelt as normal. The booster seat raises your child to the correct height to make the seatbelt effective in the event of a collision. You must ensure that the seatbelt straps feed through the wings at the back of the booster seat, so that the belt is correctly positioned across your child's lap.
We have access to a couple of other basic booster seats and I can't honestly say that this one is any better or worse. It's a booster seat and it does the job, although my little girl is thrilled to sit in it every day and takes great pride in telling everyone about her princess booster seat.
We paid £12.99 for this seat in Tesco, which I thought was ok, but I have seen it priced as high as £29.99, which I personally think is extortionate, as you are paying an awful lot of money purely for the Disney Princess branding.
Overall though, is is a decent booster seat and any little princesses will be thrilled to use this in the car.
The first time I went to stay down in Eastbourne at my boyfriends house, his parents put one of their cars at our disposal to allow my boyfriend to drive us to local sights and attractions. This was all very well - except that as a non-driver, I didn't have a car booster seat for my little one.
The law as it stands in the UK states that children under 12, or below 135 centimetres in height MUST use a car seat / booster seat unless a) travelling in a licensed Taxi, b) travelling a short distance on an unexpected but neccessary journey or c) there are already two car seats in the rear of the vehicle leaving no space for a third. So, getting hold of a booster seat was pretty important . We borrowed one from a neighbour with children on the first couple of visits, but it soon became apparent that we were going to be visiting rather a lot and it made sense to buy our own that we could leave down there.
Whilst I would have happily purchased something plain and functional, my boyfriend mum wanted only the best for her step granchild . In this case, the best meant pink, glittery, and utterly girly - and so she purchased the Disney Princess booster seat.
It's pink and glittery, with a removable and washable seat pad featuring the words 'Glitter Sparkle' and three Disney Princesses - Belle, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. This seat is suitable for 18-36kg, up to 150cm in height and ages 4+ . It can be used with both across the lap and diagonal seat belts.
The fitting was left to me when we used the car, and was pretty simple - simply push the rear of the booster flush against the back of the car seat, pop your child on, and secure the seatbelt through the notches on either side of seat. Having transferred this from car to car on visits there, I have to say it's light and hassle free, and takes a matter of a few seconds to set up.
My daughter certainly seems comfortable enough, and there have been no complaints there. She also enjoyes the extra boost in height, allowing her to look out of the windows more easily (something that is very enjoyable in that part of the country thanks to some stunning scenery.)
The seat pad has been washed a few times, as the main kind of attraction we like to visit down there are open farms, resulting in all kinds of animal poop and general grime making it onto the pad. It's easily machine washable, and it easy to stretch back into place once clean.
I can't really think of any downsides to this seat at all, except for the fact that it's pink, so naturally boys might shy away from using it! The seat costs a little under £30, and is available from amazon.co.uk.
I recommend this product - a car seat is an essential for car travel with children, and this fits the bill - easy to transfer from car to car, easy to fit, and comfortable to use. And it's pretty nice looking too!
Why did I buy this product?
My daughter had just turned four and her other car seat was too small for her.
What is the product for?
To keep a child safe when a driver is driving in case there is a car accident.
Where can I buy it from?
You can buy this Disney car seat from TESCOs supermarket store.
I paid £10 for this booster seat but have heard people paying around £15 for it.
The seating direction is forward facing. Weight limit is 33.07 to 79.37 lbs. Height limit is up to 59.06 and it has no head rest.
I bought this product as my daughter had outgrown her other car seat that she had has from when she was a baby.
We were in TESCOs doing our weekly shopping when I spotted this Disney Princess Booster seat. My daughter loved it and asked if she could have it. Little girls loves Disney Princess items I think all parents would agree. At the price of £10 I agreed that my daughter could have it I thought it was a fantastic price.
However I have to disagree with the reviews that have been written so far. I thought that the product was unsafe and I am still asking myself how this product passed its safety test. Don't get me wrong it is easy to strap your child into all you need is the seat belt. Instructions came with the booster seat for those who don't know how to strap your children in safely. But when ever my mother was driving (she is a safe driver by the way) especially if she was going round the corner the seat would tip and my daughter would slide off the seat and it would end up digging into either her back or the side of her tummy leaving her in pain and also furstraighted with her new "toy" was very disappointing and very unsafe.
On our 1 and only trip using this car seat we went from my mother's house straight to ARGOS to buy a brand new safer car seat my daughter came off the seat at least 5 times. ARGOS is only a 10 minute drive from where we live. I think that you would agree that this is not a safe product and would highly recommend not to buy this product for you little angel.
I would rate this product 1/10.
Hope my review was of some used to you. Thank you for taking time to read it.
I have purchased this booster seat for when my daughter has friends in the car or when she travels in other people's car as we still have a booster seat with a back rest as her permanent booster seat.
This Disney Princess booster seat can be used both with the correct positioning of a diagonal seat belt and just a lap belt on its own, therefore can be used in the rear centre seat if required.
It is recommended for children aged 4 to 12 years up to 150Cm tall and weighing 15-36Kg.
The actual booster seat is bright pink with arm rests on either side.
The material cover on the seat has a nice bright design featuring Bell, Cinderella and Princess Arora (Sleeping Beauty)
It is attached by Velcro, therefore removable and can be washed very easily in the washing machine.
I have put it through the machine twice and it has came out as new both times.
The greatest advantage of this booster seat is that it is very easily transferable from car to car!
This seat comprises a hard pink plastic base with a thin padded cushion velcroed on top. The cushion is 100% polyester and shows a picture of the three main princess namely Cinderella, Belle and Sleeping Beauty. This is also a genuine Disney product and not a cheap immitation.
I bought one of these booster seats as a spare seat when my daughter started asking for her friends to come round after play school.
I am very pleased with the seat as the cushion can be removed for washing at 30 degrees. So far I have only given the cushion a wipe over so cannot say if it stands up to a machine wash. I was also pleased that the base was made of plastic and not polystyreen as many of the booster seats seems to be made of this. The base can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.
When I first decided to get a spare seat I had a look around and found that on average a booster seat was about £12. I found this princess seat in Asda priced at just £10 I felt this was a very reasonable price especially for an item from the princess range. I have seen this princess seat priced at £29 by other retailers. Asda also offer a booster seat for boys featuring the Disney Pixar character Lightning Mcqueen.
Although my daughter doesn't use this as her main seat yet she loves it and is very excited when she has the opportunity to use it.
