converting pannier rack into seat for a child?!

Hi everyone, just wondered if anyone had managed to do this themselves and whether it's legal?! I currently have a Batavus Cambridge which I use as my main mode of transport, I did have a bobike maxi seat at the back for my three year old and a leco child saddle at the front for my 7 yr old. I bought some much needed pannier bags today which unfortunately don't fit with the bobike seat, I would still like to have the option of letting my seven yr old hop on for a ride as it is very convenient, does anyone know whether it's possible to convert a rack into a seat? If this is something you have done i'd love to read about it and even see some pics if possible! I am toying with the idea of an xtracycle but it's such a lot of money, not really an option at the moment!

thanks :)

    The bobike junior should allow you to use the rack as normal. Folds flat to the rack when not in use.
