Thats it really...

one of the safest car seats for 4+ / 15kg+ year olds is in tesco for £22... (instead of RRP £60)

I picked up another today for when my youngest charge FINALLY reaches 15kg... she's 4 years old and 14 1/2 kg today (with shoes and clothes on)

Im hoping she'l make the 15kg mark before she starts school in September!

Ooh, I must remember to go tomorrow. I want a cheap, but safe car seat for my holiday in 3 weeks. Thanks.

NannyL Tue 23-May-06 22:38:09

it was at tesco Extra by the way (if it makes a difefrence!)

hulababy Tue 23-May-06 22:38:52

Ah, right. Now how do I know if a a tescos is a Tescos extra?

NannyL Tue 23-May-06 22:41:34

ummm i dont know.... but most of the "big" stores are tesco extra...

In my opinion tesco 'Extras' sell things like washing machines / a large selection of home electrical stuff / general home stuff / buggies / car seats as well as food!

Did they have any for younger ones, did you notice?

We need another for DS for DH' car.

I dont think so.... they had the ranger for about £50 but that one does REALLY badly in the crash tests!

Xena Wed 24-May-06 13:14:21

What tesco extra had it NannyL?

Katemum Wed 24-May-06 13:26:53

Just had an argument in our Tesco as they have it for sale at £54.98.

Xena Wed 24-May-06 14:16:56

Xena Wed 24-May-06 14:36:21

Katemum Wed 24-May-06 16:25:36

Someone put us out of our misery and tell us what branch these are at, please

Xena Wed 24-May-06 16:54:46

Sorry was at school. Kbear our nearest extra is at Lakeside.

KBear Wed 24-May-06 17:07:25

Thanks Xena - long time no see - where you been?

hulababy Wed 24-May-06 17:53:05

None in the Doncaster branch Went over there specially and none in.

Don't suppose anyone is any where near(ish) to me (Sheffield) - if you see one somewhere localish, let me know?!

Xena Wed 24-May-06 19:16:30

mysonsmummy Wed 24-May-06 19:34:16

have tried to find in at tesco extra on-line but cant - has anyone found it?

my nearest big tesco is sunbury cross - anyone seen it there? thanks

Fab! Are these isofix? Or do you not get that with the group 2-3 seats. Haven't done my research on this yet. Ta.

tassis Wed 24-May-06 19:55:58

they're not isofix, ballbuggiedout, but they're one of the best in the which report.

there is at least one isofix one in this stage, but it's a lot more expensive

this is the one we were planning to buy. you can quite often get it in halford and the like for around £40, but this is a HUGE bargain.

sadly I've just phoned no less than 4 tesco extras and one of them stock it. bother.

NannyL Wed 24-May-06 20:10:41

I got mine from Tesco Extra in Chichester, West Sussex yesturday.

they definitley had more on display

(sorry to hear other tescos arnt doing it.... naturally i thoight it was a "tesco" thing)

jstbcs Wed 24-May-06 20:42:52

no tesco near me, but Halfords are doign it for £39 and they will fit it as well!

NannyL Wed 24-May-06 20:52:47

the britax highliner doesnt exactly require much 'fitting'!

you put it on the seat, and strap the child in making sure the shoulder bit is in 'its' place!

KBear Wed 24-May-06 22:08:28

Xena - congratulations - sorry to hear you had a bad time though. All's well that ends well though!!

Catch up with you and your sister maybe at one of the Greenwich meetups - can't make the one next week as I'll be on holiday but Jenweber630 and Beachyhead are going I think - check out the thread on meetups if you're up to it.

See you.
