    I have nothing but good things to say about this car seat. We purchased it first in 2016 for our eldest daughter and we found it so easy to fit and simple to use that we purchased another in 2017 for our youngest daughter.
    They both seem very comfortable and that makes us happy!
    I found it VERY easy to fit and I do get confused by things like this easily, usually, so knowing I could fit it was fantastic.

    This is a great car seat as long as once it is installed you do not take it out often as it is heavy, large and bulky. I do feel more secure placing a baby in these larger ones then the small portable ones.

    We bought this as a cheap car seat as it is hardly ever used. My little boy loves that he can look out of the window. It is really simple to fit into the car. My little boy appears to be comfortable whilst he is in this seat. The belts can be a bit fiddly to adjust and after a few times found it easier to do this out of the car. The only thing I can fault is it is only forward facing.

    Merge used this chair instead of another high cost branded swivel chair we had as this one is light to move, easy to insert and reclines easily for sleepy toddlers. We have two cars that we use and we also need to take flights during the summer so it was essential we own a chair that wasn’t cumbersome yet still extremely safe. This ticked all our boxes and my daughter is extremely happy in it. No over heating in the warm weather and easy to get her in and out. Would highly recommend!

    This is a good car seat for those who do not mind having their child forward facing. My boy hated being rear faced and loves getting into this seat. The straps are easily adjustable but i find they can sometimes get stuck and require a little tug.
    I especially love that you can recline this seat, which is perfect for car naps and preventing the head from falling forward.

    My LG doesn't mind being in it and it does what it's meant to do. It's just a bit of a pain to fasten into different cars. It's easy to take my LG in and out and easy to fasten her and change the length of the straps.

    My little boy has been in this car seat since he was around 9 months old. He loves it. It’s comfortable for him and at a reasonable height so he can see out the window on longer journeys. I’m hoping to get this for my daughter in the coming months.

    I brought this for my baby as soon as she turned 9 months old and she loves it! You can adjust the seat so it’s upright or pulled back for the comfort of them sleeping. It is very easy to put in and out of the car and very light weight to hold. I would highly recommend.

    Had this for my first born and bused for my second too. Bought this for its ease of use. It’s extremely comfortable for both children. They would both happily fall asleep within minutes of starting a journey. It’s super easy to use with the adjustable straps and my children could not get there arms out which is a big ask. Has super comfy shoulder and neck pads which stay in place and don’t slip don’t. The fact that you can recline it too in one gesture is amazing once baby has fallen asleep. The only thing I would of liked is if it had a adjustable head rest for when baby got a lot bigger but in grand scheme of things it’s not important. If I could change it in anyway I would have more patterned fabrics available. Would I recommend this car seat to others of course I would. It was great value for money

    The car seat is lovely and comfortable, my son is 2.5 years old and still has loads of room in it. It’s got impact side shields which is also brilliant too. We were in an accident last year and the car seat kept my son in safely without any problems. Only weakness is that it is bulky and and nightmare to strap into the car itself .

    I have had one of these car seats for each of my children as no other car seat compares. The product is extremely sturdy and tightens into the car super tight using the seat belt, which is very reassuring. Even though it is very sturdy, it is also quite lightweight meaning it's easy to get in and out of the car. This car seat is brilliant value for money as there is so much growing space in it. My 2 eldest children have used it from 9 months until 4 years old with plenty of room left. It it very easily cleaned also, with the cover coming off.
    The seat sits up nice and high, meaning little one has a nice view out the window! The recline function is brilliant as well for when little one falls asleep!

    I've found this car seat easy to fit into our car, it reclines nicely to keep sleeping baby comfy, easy to loosen/tighten straps.
    The only problem is that my little boy managed to slip his straps over his shoulders.

    I bought this for my son when he was 2 years of age and he is 3 now and still uses this carseat for everyday use! He loves his seat and finds it comfortable. If he falls asleep i can recline him which is an advantage. Only cons i found were in the summer months because the weather gets warmer the material is all black so attracts the heat also it cannot be used rear facing. Other than this i would 100% recommend this product as it is very good value for money.

    I had this seat with my baby, lots of padding for a comfortable ride for your little one. This seat is easy to fit but it is also a bit bulky.
    I am prepared to put up with its b being so bulky as I feel it is a safe seat. I would recommend this product they are big enough for it. I found this seat to be very safe with lot child and was very pleased with it.
    I will be buying it again for my second baby when she is.
