    I brought my baby girl home in this car seat, having had no experience with car seats before, I had to ask the midwife to help make sure it was safe and secure. I didn’t get this with the isofix so had to use the seatbelt. At first I felt it a bit fiddly but after a few uses, you realise how simple it is. She looked rather squashed in and her head down but now she’s a little bigger and has more head strength she fits in more and is able to look around and seems to be content. I got this as part of the Joie Travel system and it is great to just clip onto the pushchair and go. Getting it out of the pushchair was a bit of a drama as the instructions aren’t very clear and I had to work it out like a puzzle. When removing it catches in the material of the push chair every time which is quite frustrating. The manual is hard to understand and I spent a lot of time googling and looking at you tube for clear instructions. Once you know, you know and it’s good to use. Just needs to be more clear.

    I love this car seat, even if it is a bit in the heavy side. My boy was only 6lbs when born and he fit lovely in it with the newborn insert, always looked very comfy in it and is more than happy in there. He is now 6 months and I have taken the insert out which has given him a good few more months in the seat, it's a great size and is just as padded and comfortable without the insert. I love the 5 point harness and never worry about my son's safety in the car seat! All round great product, especially with the isofix that makes it so easy to get in and out of the car! I have recommended this car seat to many of my expectant mummy friends!!

    Love this car seat.. even if it’s on the heavy side.. think of those muscles!
    The instructions are not very clear at all, as my boy got to 5 months he was looking a little to snug in the seat but we didn’t realise the padding can be taken out and the straps adjusted until we took him to a Mammas and Pappas store to look for the next size seat! Still happy in his little seat!
    Would recommend

    This product is good value for money however I do think there are a few cons, the product is very heavy To carry and i struggle to carry the car seat with my baby inside, I also find the straps are difficult to get babies arms in and out of. If he’s asleep I often wake him up accidentally trying to strap him in to the car seat. In comparison to other models on the market the straps could be made easier, other models also offer a clip on the side to hold the straps whilst putting baby in. It’s really hard to hold them apart trying to put baby in at the same time. When this car seat is placed into the chassis (frame) the clips are in an awkward place under the car seat which means two people are required to remove car seat from frame - one to hold clips apart and the other to lift from the top. I struggle with the car seat although it is cheaper than other models and also looks nice I’d rather pay the extra and go for an easier option. My baby is also very uncomfortable in this car seat and hates car journeys.

    I like the design of this item, in the charcoal gray it looks smart when used as part of travel system. It has a newborn insert, but even with a six pound baby, found too small. In size it does feel more compact then other brands and at £130 at time, didn't find as cheap compared to others. I find it difficult clicking onto travel system, due to where buttons are located.
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Can be used without base

    • Weaknesses:

      Not big enough for a baby with snowsuit

    • Comfortable
    • Value for money
    I do love this car seat, my baby girl sleeps as soon as car starts on every journey very comfortably. Didn't have to buy isofix base as I am using seat belt to hold and it is very sturdy and safe. My only thing is I tried to put my baby with snowsuit on and it felt bit tight space with straps. Then again with other clothes she has enough space.
  • 4.00/5
    • Strengths:

      It has a soft handle which gives a comfortable grip.

    It is a neutral black colour, so it can match perfectly with almost anything you pair it with. It had a rounded base which helps rock baby when needed. The handle can also be turned downwards to make it a stand that helps the seat stay sturdy. I preferred the soft material as it looks comfortable for baby. The head hugger is a bonus as well keeping baby snug.
  • 4.38/5
    • Strengths:

      Good value, good safety rating

    • Weaknesses:

      Difficult to tighten straps if already in car

    • Value for money
    Bought this seat and isofix base. It is been ideal for our needs. We were drawn to it by its safety ratings and that we wanted an i-size car seat. This one will last longer than other 0+ car seats and we can transition to the anchor seat using the same isofix.
    It’s easy to clip in and out of the isofix and has a descent recline. It is easy to adjust as baby gets bigger.
    It is however difficult to tighten the straps once the seat is in the car. The angle you need to be is difficult when the car seat is there.
    Otherwise no complaints. Good value, safe car seat.

    Brilliant car seat, baby seems to be very happy & content in it. We bought the base to go with it, & it is so very easy and simple to use! Just fiddly trying to remove from pram is all. Once you get used to it, it is ok.

    Ee got this car seat to use with the pram and have no regrets. For a reasonable price you get a good quality product. Our baby likes it a lot and it’s not heavy as other car seats.

    Good car seat for newborn. Didn't last us as long as we would have liked but it's good value for money and does the job.

    An easy light car seat to put in and out of the car at a great price in a very saturated market. Fits easily with adaptors to the joie chrome pram chassis. Only draw back for me was the zipping hood which was time consuming to put up and down in comparison to other models in the market. Used the seat both with and without the Isofix base. Fantastic car seat!

    I've use this car seat now for 3 children where they be small or big (biggest being 9lb8 ) they all fitted it very well and they all seemed comfortable I love that it has a new born insert as well for extra comfort.

    Love the fact that this can be used on the pushchair as well, means it's easy to use quickly for short trips to the shop. Great from birth to about 18 months (1st was in till then, 2nd probably only till 14 months but he's bigger)
    Easy to convert when they grow and can't fault the price!

    I love this, it's so easy to fit into the car. I have an isofix base for this which makes it so much more easier to get into the car. The newborn insert is well padded and my baby looks so comfortable in it.

    This is very good and comfortable car seat, my baby doesn’t mind spend all day in it! Only downside is that if you attach it to wheels it’s very difficult to take it off!! You need 2 people or take your baby out and then put him/her back after removing from the wheels. And the straps are quite tight with newborn insert. But other than that it’s great value for a good price. I know my baby is safe in this car seat.
