    Default Booster seats for front passenger seat

    I'm not after a debate on the safety, I just want to know what options are out there for front seat boosters. It's legal in Victoria provided the child is over 7 and all back seat positions are taken. I have to take 4 kids on the school run this year and can only do it if a 7 or 8yo sits in the front.

    I've been looking at this booster seat (Infasecure Versatile ), does anyone know of any other options? I know you don't technically need a booster but dd7 is a bit too short and I don't like the way the strap crosses her neck.

    Any untethered booster will do but it must be untethered.

    Infa folding booster
    Sns tourer

    I'm sure theres a few more options, but I cant think of the names!

    Hipod rio and bum boosters are the others. Bum boosters aren't sold snymore but are still legal, as are the old style foam ones.

    The sns tourer has the highest markers.

    And also, it's legal from 4 to put a kid in the front in an untethered booster if all other seats are taken by younger kids.

    Default Booster seats for front passenger seat

    Following. I never actually knew you could put a booster seat in the front seat? If the child is over 4 and all other seats are taken, the child can sit in the front seat without a booster.

    Edit: trusty Google answered my question and you can use an untethered booster in the front. Awesome to know especially like today when I had 6 kids in tow.
