    Travel seats

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blue-Portabl...item2a36264d12

    Are these travel seats on eBay safe to use in place of a car seat for a 2 year old???

    Also how do you install it in a 5 seater car. It seems like you only have the option to use it in a van that allows you to thread it and attach it at the back of the seat...

    Please advise ASAP!

    Not safe at all, sorry.

    Are you in the US? How heavy is your two year old? We can help you find a seat that works both on a plane as well as in a car.

    Here's a review from CarseatBlog: http://carseatblog.com/18106/yiren-t...nese-car-seat/

    But the short answer is no, not safe. There are many good travel options out there, though. Maybe we can help find some for you.
