With a big age gap, my son is effectively an only child. It is always more fun to have company when going on an outing. Not to mention a lot easier for me so I don’t have to double as mum and playmate. When we go on outings, he usually gets to invite a friend. However, I’m not going to take a child in a car without a car seat. My other half is even stricter about this than me. He won’t take a child in the car without side protection, in case of side impact. So having a spare car seat that fits the bill is a must for us.
It has come to our ears that the Graco Junior Maxi can be found instore at Asda marked down from £25 to £12.50. Which is a lot less than Mothercare – the store sells the same model for £44.99 online. The Graco Junior Maxi is a high-backed booster seat, suited to ages 4 to 11 (or 33lb to 79lb). For more information about car seats in general, visit the website Child Car Seats. It provides some excellent videos, information on the law, and explains all the stuff you need to know about car seats, such as which group fits your child.
