Graco Junior Maxi Plus Carseat Review

The lovely people at Graco sent me a Junior Maxi Plus car seat to review recently! The Junior Maxi Plus comes in three Disney designs – Disney Princesses, Toy Story and Cars. Imagine my daughters delight when she was presented with this…

What the website says –

  • Height adjustable arm rests to give better back support
  • Raised seat and belt guides ensure maximum performance
  • Triple side impact protection
  • Integrated seat belt guide in headrest to always ensure correct position of the seat belt
Ease of Use
  • Colour coded seat belt guides
  • The back can be removed to leave a group 3 booster
  • Iintuitive vehicle belt routing indicated in red
  • 2 retractable cup holders
  • Extra arm padding
  • Height-adjustable head support (grows with child)
  • 2 recline positions for the backrest
  • Height-adjustable armrest
  • Padded armrests
  • 2 position recline
  • Machine washable cover
  • Can be used as a low booster (detachable backrest). To ensure optimal safety and comfort, it is highly recommended to keep the backrest as long as possible
  • 2 retractable cup holders
What we think –
Well Boo obviously couldn’t wait to get her new car seat in the car lol! In fact we had to go out in the car as soon as we got it out of the box. She had just been using a Graco booster seat for a while now but I much prefer her to be on the Junior Maxi Plus! She is far more comfortable and the seat belt doesn’t cut into her neck while she is on the seat! I’m not sure if she is actually anymore secure on it than a booster seat but it does feel like it!

The Junior Maxi Plus was very simple to put together, it came in three separate pieces that just slot together easily. The headrest is adjustable to fit your child, as Boo is quite tall that is a huge bonus. She is the size of a 7 year old and the she fits the seat perfectly! I would definitely recommend the Graco Junior Maxi Plus to everyone.

The age range of the Graco Junior Maxi Plus is 3-12 years (15-36kg) so it really is a fantastic purchase that will last for many years!

    OMG my son would love the Cars one of these Graco Junior carseats! He's already watched the Cars 2 film about 20 times! Keeps him quiet for a wee while though 🙂
