    My wee boy loves this seat. He has 2 cup holders. It grows with age and you don't need to readjust harness at back as it moves up with the headrest.
    Only issue I have and I don't know if I've missed something but I can't get the fabric to sit in place when the harness comes off and we use the seatbelt

    I have no complaints for this car seat. It's very well padded for comfort and my kids always aren't cramped in so they have space to get comfy to sleep while still being secure. The seat grows with the child as bother my 1 and 3 year old love sitting in it. The head rest is perfectly positioned for when they fall asleep as their heads don't fall forward. It's so sturdy yet lightweight and easy to install which makes it easier for the dreaded task of moving cars.really good value for money also.

    My daughter is using her car seat since she was 9months old as she quickly outgrew her baby seat. She absolutely loves to travel in this sit as it is very comfortable for her. Seat has a reclining mode and allows her to have a long nap on a longer trip. Its very easy to adjust and secure. It is stage 123 and absolute value for money.

    I purchased this car seat over a year a half and never have had any trouble with it. I found it easy to fit, I watched a quick video on fitting on YouTube and then tried myself- taking no longer than 5 mins. The down side is that there’s only 2 ways to have it - recline and upright and you have to remove the seat to set it to the position required.

    I have found it’s not very easy to clean and remove crumbs and found the crumbs get stuck down the little nooks and crannys making the hard to remove.

    I like the fact there’s a drinks holder down the side of the chair that you can push in and out when required, saving drinks from getting spilled when off out on long trips.

    The car seat apparently lasts until the child is 12 years old and usable from 1 year old so making it good value for money.. it’s only forward facing though so would need a separate car seat for when the child is rear facing.

    My little girl finds it very comfy and has no trouble falling to sleep in it, which is an added bonus!

    Overall I’ve found it to be a great product to invest in and when it’s on offer it makes it an even bigger bargain!

    Bought my daughter this seat after looking at loads and this was the best one as it will last her a long time because it goes into a high back booster. The covers are also easy to take off and clean. You are able to make it recline slightly which I couldn’t find on any other 1/2/3 seat. Would highly recommend.

    We are only in the early days of using this car seat, my little man has just switched from his 0+ to this one. He’s transitioned really well though and seems comfortable enough in it. Unfortunately it doesn’t recline very much so if he falls asleep his head can sometimes drop forward towards his chest, he’s on the edge of the smaller weight range though so I’m sure as he grows it will improve.

    Pros:
    Great value for money
    Easy to fit
    Really strong straps, baby is very secure
    Stylish

    Cons:
    Doesn’t recline very far back
    Only forward facing option available

    Lots of space for my daughter's legs and very comfortable. Easy to use and Easy to clean. Head rest allows her to sleep in a good position but you need to remove the car seat in order to recline it.

    Really like this car seat, little one has had no problem with the transition to this age group of car seat, falls asleep in it no problem on the longer journeys. Only problem I have is that it has to recline when in use in the back seat of the car. Otherwise a great car seat.

    Although this seat is great and easy to use with the 5 point harness and belt it is quite bulky so with 2 of these in a car it will leave little room for the 5th person.
  • 4.00/5
    • Strengths:

    This is a great car seat, that evolves with your child, it comes with a detachable cushioned support pad for younger children, which can be removed when the child gets older and is able to support its neck. The thing I love about the product is that you can change the car seat into a booster seat by taking of the upper part which saves you money on spending again, there is also a cup or bottle holder that is tucked away on the side of the car seat which is really useful. I would recommend this product. I liked it so much I purchased another one for my second child.
  • 5.00/5

    I love how easy it is to fit, when transferring to grandparents car that only has 3 doors that fact this car seat is so easy to fit is a big plus. I like the two cup holders as one can hold a drinks bottle and one can hold snacks. The height adjustment is so easy to do. Overall I love this car seat and we got it when on sale so was really good value for money.

    Lovely seat. Looks comfortable. Daughter uses daily and always looks safe and comfortable.
    Easy to take apart for cleaning.
    Pretty easy to install... As with most seats and seat belts can be a little awkward to plug in.
    Other than seat being heavy it's a good seat... Good job I don't need to carry too far.

    We bought this seat as a spare for my husbands car. We have an all singing all dancing rear facing spinning chair in my car but it is so heavy we decided we needed a second chair. We were keen to have another backward facing but without the price tag and found there weren’t any options that worked for us. This led to us choosing a forward facing seat and decided we’d invest in something to last our 1 year old. We chose this seat instead of a similar Joie one mainly as it was cheaper but I’d also seen a poor review of a Joie seat.
    I have always been wary of non isofix seats and was advised that this seat doesn’t have a ‘seatbelt lock’ so may slip over time. However I was pleasantly supposed at how easy it is to fit with the seatbelt and it feels so sturdy because the seatbelt feeds through the front of seat and back out before being plugged in.
    My little boy seems to find it comfortable and not only the height is adjustable but also a small adjustment in the width. Unfortunately there is no easy recline and it only has 2 settings from a wedge underneath which would need to be chosen before fitting.
    One selling point for me was the ‘click’ seat harness adjustment so you could be sure it was tight enough. However the harness is still to adjust and on a couple of occasions it has clicked when it is nowhere near tight enough.
    Generally I highly recommend this long lasting and smart seat but trust your instinct on the ‘click’!

    A great seat that lasts for years. Once the child if forward facing its the only seat you will need. Kids find it comfortable and it seems to have good side impact protection.

    There are better seats for the price this costs. The straps seem to be really hard to get tight enough to be safe in a crash. Seat seems comfortable. Lasts from 9-36kg.

    The britax Evolva 123 is overall a value for money seat. It’s a forward facing seat. The installation is straight forward. However the harness height on this seat we personally found too low. Our 3 year old has now out grown the seat and is too immature to sit in a HBB. I would recommend this seat as a value for money seat.

    This car seat offers good value for money. It’s comfortable and safe for baby. Only downside is it’s a little tricky to fit if you need to transfer between cars a lot (which we do!).

    I brought this car seat in black when my son was out of his carry car seat. But I had a small car so the seat was slightly too big for the seat but got it checked by the store where I got it from and said it was fine. It’s difficult to swap from car to car and does take some time to secure.

    I bought the evolva as a second car seat for my parents to use when picking up my son. It’s a good simple design and easy to use. It’s lasted throughout the toddler years and now still suitable for my quite bulky school goer. The only downside to the seat is that it does not rear face. For me this wasn’t a problem as it was used from age 3 upwards and as a temporary seat. But i wouldn’t have it as a main seat for a younger child.
