How we test Graco child car seats
Our reviews of car seats are based on our thorough test program. Our tests are more rigorous than the standard, and better reflect what happens in real crashes compared with the legal minimum test. Unlike the standard we also test ease of use – checking that the seat is easy to install and adjust in different cars, as well as in any of the modes it can be fitted.
These components all feed in to the final review score. To be a Best Buy, a Group 0 or 0+ child car seat must score 77% or more. A group 1, 2, 3 child car seat or any of the combinations of these groups need to score 74% or higher to be a Best Buy.

Where to buy Graco child car seats?
Retailers such as Mothercare, Halfords, Debenhams, Kiddicare, Argos, independents and other online retailers.
When buying a child car seat we strongly recommend browsing and researching online but, when you come to purchasing, it’s best to have it fitted in-store and buy it there. This is because not all car seats fit in all cars, and a fitting demonstration will help you once you’ve got the product home. In a crash an incorrectly fitted car seat can be dangerous and reduce the crash protection of the seat.
