Would you say anything? What would you say? Would it change matters if the person asking is the mother of a small 2yo you have looked after?

Booster seat for sale with a caption "4 to 8 year, but my 2yo sits comfortably in it"

Are you suggesting she puts her 2 year old in a booster without a 5 point harness built in? As per regulations?

Is it a convertible booster seat? One that has a 5 point harness which then tucks away when the child is old enough to use a proper seatbelt?

Yeah I would say something..
My main concern is that by advertising it, they could lead a person to think it is ok.
Like someone from another country.

No, I would never suggest that! There is one for sale on fb, dedicated booster, not convertible booster. The caption says "4 to 8 year, but my 2yo sits comfortably in it" and the person enquiring has a 2 year old who you know is a small 2yo.

I would comment with a link to the laws, explaining that type of car restraint can only be used by a child over 4 years as it doesn't have a 5 point harness

My concern is that I know the child. If he was physically too big for a 5pt harness it would be less of a concern but he would be flat out meeting the minimum 14kg much less outgrown a baby seat. The trouble is, the seat she bought was a short seat, only rearfaced to 9kg but she is poor so nothing could be done. But there are inexpensive 8 to 18kg seats on the market.
