Quite a while ago I posted about a “car seat” that was being sold on eBay etc and it was spread on Facebook. We got news that maybe several child minders had bought this product along with other parents who thought this was a good deal and ofc. action had to be taken!!
The post can be viewed <<HERE>>.
The item in question was this harness….thing…
Apparently they were sold for £18!
Now Surrey Trading Standards has taken action and has released a press report. They are also sending out word via the BBC News.
Thank goodness something is finally happening!!
The above shows the crash test that was done with these seats to show us just how dangerous they are. Picture the doll as an actual child…
