MiFold Grab and Go review£40.00
This car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by the ECE R44.04 standard to be sold as suitable for children from 15-36kg, that's around three or four years old up to 12 years old. However, in our own more stringent tests, which include a side-impact crash test (something not included to pass the test for R44.04), it scored poorly, so the score is automatically downgraded and it becomes a Don't Buy car seat.
However, in our own more stringent tests, which include a side-impact crash test (something not included to pass the test for R44.04), it scored poorly, so the score is automatically downgraded and it becomes a Don't Buy car seat.A backless booster seat offers virtually no side-impact protection at all, so a good score in any of our other tests can't compensate for this poor result.
