Which!!! think Nania Trio Plus baby car seat is unsafe

27 August 2013


Are you a parent who has a Nania Trio Plus child car seat in their vehicle? Well, Which!!! want you to replace it immediately as it achieved the lowest possible score in their tests. Its a popular model of car seat and is designed to last children from birth 'til they're approximately six years old.

Of course, it passed the legal safety standards for child car seats (the exciting 'ECE R44/04'), however, in Which!!!'s more demanding tests, it scored 0% overall (click here for the review).

The Nania Trio Plus is no longer on sale, but for those of you who bought one before the winter of 2012, it is advised that you get rid of it and invest in a new one because Which!!! think that the seat will put your child at the risk of serious injury.

The biggest problem is the position of the adult seat belt when the seat is used for older kids, which absorbs impact through the child's neck and stomach.

A spokesperson from Asda said of the seat: "We've not sold this car seat since last year. All of our car seats are tested to the same EU standards that are in force across the retail industry. We would support going further in legislation and are happy to work with the industry to advise on how we make this happen. Team Tex (the makers of the seat) is happy to replace the seat tested by Which? with a brand new, modified version."

    Didn't this thing cost like £25? Why would you skimp on something like this? Do research and spend money. (I'm not saying more money always equals better, but generally in this case it can).

    Gloria those two are fine, in fact they're so good I hear you can use them up to age 17yrs. It's the d122011 and 105367 you need to be scared of.
