Product alert

The Junior Maxi has been approved under the older car seat regulations and is legal to be sold on the UK market. However, a side-impact crash isn't part of the testing requirements for seats approved to R44. Which? has been testing car seats with two specially designed crash test scenarios, including a side-impact crash test, for many years.

The Graco Junior Maxi has been part of the Graco range of car seats for a while. It's an affordable group 2/3 car seat approved for use with kids between 15kg and 36kg (around four to 12 years old) but can be converted to just a booster cushion. We've seen it on offer quite a lot and it can be found in some supermarket baby events, like the one at Asda, but before you bag a bargain, read our safety alert to see why our crash tests resulted in a Don't Buy rating.
