I currently have my 8yr old and my 5yr old in the Infa Vario booster seats, and going off the CREP results they are no longer the best option??....

are these http://shop.target.com.au/p/hipod-boston-b...k-black/W183173 the hipods they are referring to in the CREP results?

Same with my 2yr old who is currently in a Meridian T&A which is a 2010 version that was tested, so should I move him into a http://www.babyzonedirect.com.au/babylove-...fruit-loop.html even though this booster online is a 2011 and the one tested was a 2010??

Personally if my child still fit in their seats I would leave them.

CREP changed their testing methods which changed results for some seats. They have only tested a select few seats anyway. Who is to say that in 6-12m time that they have not tested more seats and one of those seats now tests better then the new seats you have. Are you going to then purchase New seats again?

that is exactly what hubby said lol... as they were the best seats when I purchased them ... I don't know how they test them so I can only go off the latest results and that shows that there are better seats than the ones I have, and some area's my current seats got poor results compared to new seats.... But I just didn't know if those that I posted are the actual seats.....
