Graco Junior Maxi™ Reviews

Marsha Awarded The Graco Junior Maxi Car Seat 5/5

Looked good quality and could not wait to try it out. The instructions were easy to follow, very straightforward and we managed to get the seat fitted very quickly. The car seat was easy to fit. We have a VW Caravelle. The car seat fitted into our car very well. My daughter is very secure in the seat and the harness is comfortable and secure. So happy with the headrest and the fact that it can be adjusted with one hand is great! The adjustable armrests are a very useful feature as my daughter grows. The cupholders are a great feature. My daughter likes a drink and snacks in the car and so these will be very handy. Particularly for trips over the summer holidays. My daughter loves her car seat and was very comfortable. This is one area which is very important to me as we have had car seats in the past which we have felt were unsafe and very uncomfortable. We have confidence in the Graco Junior Maxi Car Seat. The car seat was light. We have not tried it in any other vehicle. No mess or spillages so far. I feel it is a great feature as 5 year olds can be messy! The test will be in the next few weeks when we go on long car journey’s during the school summer holidays. The cover can be easily removed so I will definitely use this feature at some point. My child is 5 and of average height. I believe the car seat will last until she is 12. My 9 year old son can fit in the seat very comfortably. We use this car seat every day for the school run. We plan on using it for longer trips over the coming weeks. We have tried our 9 year old son with the seat and it was a great fit. We most liked that it had very secure and comfortable straps and headrest. We feel confident that our child is safe and secure.  It is a nice compact seat and in the black colour looks very neat and stylish. My daughter liked the seat, said it was comfortable and all hers! We used the car seat in one vehicle only – VW Caravelle. I believe that £35 is a good price.  It is affordable and will be used for many years to come. I have bought more expensive car seats in the past but the Maxi Junior Graco seat is better quality, sturdier and better value for money in my opinion. I think it is great quality, sturdy and strong. I would definitely consider buying this product. It is what I look for when purchasing a car seat for my child. Strong, comfortable, functional and safe. I would recommend this product to friends and family. It is a good price and good value for money. It ticks all the boxes we are looking for in a car seat. it is comfortable, safe, neat and sturdy. We have really enjoyed testing out the car seat. I was looking for a car seat for my daughter which  was safe and comfortable. Something which she would be comfortable during long journey’s and would last several years. This car seat has all these qualities and is also neat and compact without compromising any of the safety features.  I have confidence in this product and It is great value for money – I would highly recommend. Marsha Andes – Ayana 5 Years

The seat was nicely packaged and upon opening it I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the seat. I have 3 children and have had many seats in the past. This is by far the best quality affordable seat I have used. The instructions were very clear and in depth. The seat was very easy to assemble. I have a Peugeot 3008 and this seat fits well. It is slightly wider than the seat I originally had which makes it slightly harder to fasten the seat belt, but this is due to the solid design, so in my opinion it’s not a problem. Once this was fitted it was very safe and secure.  It is great quality and a sturdy seat. The headrest is straightforward to adjust when you get the hang of it. As long as it is angled correctly, it adjusts with ease. The armrests are perfect height when at the highest setting for my 5 year old. The difference in height isn’t a great amount (about an inch) so it is hard for me to comment on how they would suit a younger child. My daughter absolutely loves the cupholders! They are a real selling point. They hold a drink sturdily, however my daughter much prefers to fill them with toys! They are great for holding a cup of pens too so that she can colour when in the car. Absolutely comfortable in this car seat.  In fact she fell asleep in it the first time we used it which us very unlike her! I’ve not tried it in any other cars but it is lightweight so I can’t see any issue with transferring it between cars. Again, I’ve not washed the covers yet but the seat has remained clean with a sometimes very mucky child! I got the black colourway for this reason and am impressed with the fabric. The armrests are plastic which is great as previous seats have had fabric covers on the armrests which always get dirty. The headrest adjusts quite a lot and it becomes a booster seat without the back very easily. However, the armrests are quite bulky so it wouldn’t be very discreet if this was a requirement. We have used the car seat every day since receiving it 6 weeks ago. Our old seat is long gone as we much prefer this one! The seat has only been used for my 5 year old daughter. I like the mixture of plastic and fabric surfaces, the sturdy design and of course the cup holders! My daughter loves being able to store her toys in the cup holders. They were a real hit! The seat was only used in a Peugeot 3008. The seat is absolutely 100% value for money and by far the best “budget” seat we have used. I am considering getting another for my 9 year old. The seat is sturdy, the fabric is strong and vacuums well and my daughter is comfortable when in her seat. I am very pleased with the quality. I will probably buy one for my son as I am so impressed by the design and functionality. Would definitely recommend as it is a great seat that looks like it will last well. The seat is perfect. Lightweight but sturdy and looks a lot more expensive than it is. The fabric wipes down well and the features such as the armrests and cup holders are great. Very impressed. I have been very impressed with the overall design and quality of the car seat. It has been used for both short 5 min journeys and 4-hour journeys and my daughter is always very comfortable. Perfect! Thankyou! Kirsty Prochowski – Isla 5 Years

Anthony Awarded The Graco Junior Maxi Car Seat 3.4/5

My first impressions were positive. The box it came in was compact and when I removed it from the box it seemed to be good quality. The instructions are relatively easy to follow. They are made up of pictures with some text. The pictures are not labelled. The seat required some assembly. The parts were clearly shown. I would have preferred the pictures to be captioned with text rather than having a separate section of text. However this allows the instructions to be in different languages. I have two vehicles and it was easy to fit in both vehicles. I mainly tested it in my Vauxhall Zafira Tourer. There is no isofix on this car seat so you just place it on the seat and slot the seatbelt through the shoulder belt guide. The car seat is not isofix and so is just placed on the seat. The car seat is well made and quite rigid so the back does not slide about. When my child is sat in it, the seat belt is positioned correctly. I feel my child is safe in this seat as he seems comfortable and the belt is positioned correctly. However I have seen similar seats which have hooks to clip on to isofix. These are not proper isofix connections but do keep the seat in position. The headrest is easy to adjust but I think 6 settings is actually not that many. The headrest was fine for my son but when I tried my daughter in the seat who is older she was between headrest settings and I found that the seatbelt did not sit as well on her. The armrests adjust easily but I don’t think these are necessary. By raising the armrests i believe it makes an older child feel more penned in and my daughter preferred them to be lower. Both my children loved the cup holders/secret snack storage. They work well and they were very happy to be able to keep a drink close. Both my children have relatively expensive car seats which are significantly more padded and my son has a recline on his. So although my children were not uncomfortable in this car seat they were not as comfortable as they are in their usual seats. However this car seat is designed to be light and its perfect for taking on holiday abroad, for grandparents or moving from car to car. This car seat is quick and easy to move between cars. I found it was a good fit  in both my cars and I would think it would easily fit in most vehicles. These fabrics are very easy to remove wash and then put back on. So it is easy to clean. This car seat is suitable for 4-12 years or at least 4 to 135cm which is when children no longer require a car seat by law. You can use it as a backless booster seat once the child is over 125cm if you want to. My son is 4 and the seatbelt was positioned correctly and he could sit nicely in the seat so I think this age range is correct. I used this daily for the testing period instead of my children’s usual car seat. I used it for around a week with my 4 year old and the remaining time for my 7 year old. I really liked the cup holders! And that it is light and easy to move from car to car. The children loved the cup holders. We have used this in my car, my partners car and my grandmothers car. This car seat is great value for money. At £35 it is perfect for those on a tight budget, grandparents and to use while travelling. I feel my child would be kept safe and comfortable in this seat from 4-12. For £35 the seat is solid and good quality. The fabrics are nice and cup holder efficient. I think I would answer yes and no to this question regarding buying this. We travel a lot as a family and I have spent a lot of time researching car seats. My son rear-faced until he turned 4 and I have spent a lot of time researching ADAC scores. This seat is great value for money at £35 and offers safe travelling at a really great price but the car seats my children have, performed much better in ADAC testing. I am happy to spend a large amount of money to have the best car seat I can afford for my child. However having a light weight seat does mean that we can keep a spare for when other children visit and that grandparents can use in an emergency. It is much easier to take this seat whilst travelling and would be perfect to take if we were going abroad or using taxis. I would recommend it to friends who are on a budget or are looking for seats for grandparents. Overall for the price this seat is good quality. But it is a safety product and that is really important. Although A seat at this price would not have isofix it is a downside to it. Overall the product is of good quality and it is sturdy. It is simple to use and very affordable. My child could sit in it comfortably and it positioned the seat belt in a safe place. Anthony Devaney – Samuel 4 Years
