I had thought of trying to order one over the internet, but it would have to be from a company that delivers by post as my parents are in Cyprus (with the forces though, so could be posted by parcel post) and my dh is flying out on Monday, so not much time to sort out.
I've had a look at the Which report the Britax Cruiser plus which apparently costs £55. They rate products in 5 categories;
black star = best
white star = 2nd best
white blob = middle of the road
half white/half black blob = 2nd to worst
black blob = worst
This seat gets a white blob for side crash and a half whaite/half balck blob for front crash
The Britax Eclipse SI @ £80 gets a half white/half black blob for front crash and a white star for side crash.
Thier best buys are:
Britax Duo plus Isofix @ £180
Mamas & papas pro tec @ £130
Gosh, it's difficult isn't it. You don't want to get a really cheap one, when you know it's been badly rated, but I don't really want to be continually swapping our other one over, which would probably mean it was incorrectly fitted some of the time.
Maybe I'll take the hit and get a Britax Isofix one, which at least I know I can swap over in under a minute with 100% perfect fitting every time. They're also on offer at Kiddicare if you can get them delivered to you.
If anybody is ever thinking of getting an Isofix carseat - we have the Britax one at home and I can't recommend it highly enough in terms of ease of use, and I believe that the Which report rated it very highly for safety.
