Hi all,

Just after some opinions please. A friend of mine take her mindees out in her mini convertible (roof down) would you?

Not babies but otherwise yes - I would x

I don't think I would without permission. If parents are happy then I suppose it is ok, but personally I would not be happy for my children to be out in one. Don't know why really, I'm such a worrier I would be anxious incase they were involved in an accident.:D

I would also ask for permission from parents for older children, but would not take babies in a convertible. HTH:D

Does it have a roll bar?

I would....the kids would LOVE it! As long as they are strapped in as normal I wouldn't hesitate (obviously I would get permissions sorted first!)

without a roll bar then no i wouldn't, i wouldn't be happy for their heads to have no protection should the car roll :panic:

Not sure.

I guess I just worry too much!!

All new convertibles, the rear head rests are reinforced, some have automatic roll bars that pop up from behind, and their windscreen frames are all strengthened to act as a frontal roll bar,

Only know all this as we are looking at a convertible at the moment :thumbsup:

My mindee came in a convertible once and she was only 10 months. i thought it was excessive but what could you do. Its not illegal as far as I know!!
