    We were kindly gifted this car seat, we have it in all black and it looks beautiful. I love the strap system and how easy it is to tighten and loosen the straps however our little girl was born quite small and just didn’t look like she fitted quite right and seemed a bit uncomfortable. She has grown now and sits in it much better but we have invested in the newborn insert now just to be sure she’s safe. This is a separate purchase and I feel it should be included with the car seat as I don’t feel it is suitable for all newborn babies.

    I love love love our simplicity car seat. We use it with the isofix which makes things easier but it’s pretty easy to use either way. It’s such a stylish car seat and very comfortable for baby. Also great with the adapters for the pushchair to make life that little bit easier if you’re little one is asleep when you get to your destination.

    We love this product. We’ve used it since my daughter was born and the extra fitting you can get to suit smaller babies really helped.
    We also have the iso fix with it that makes getting it in and out of the car an absolute dream!
    The only fault I have is that it is very heavy which is a pain if you’ve got other stuff to get out of the car and you’re on your own. But this is a problem with lots of car seats.

    We got this seat as part of the silvercross travel system and for this it is brill - easy to use and transfer baby from car onto the pram whilst baby is sleeping. The seat feels safe and now that baby is a little older she seems happier and more comfortable in the seat. As a newborn, baby seemed a little small for the seat and was quite unhappy in the seat.

      This is a great first car seat. It’s safe, secure, Looks good, feels good, Durable and strong.

    • Weaknesses:

      To loosen the straps was a little stiff, however, this meant it was safe.

    This is a great car seat. I brought my baby home from hospital in the seat and it’s still going strong 7 months later. The seat itself is made well, safe, secure and durable when used daily. I love that all the bits can come off easily meaning it can be washed which is needed if baby is sick or messy in the seat. It fits any car well and is easy to strap in safely. It’s not heavy, therefore it can be carried easily in and out of places easily. The car seat is very sturdy and will last a long time. I love it. Only downside is straps can be a little stiff to adjust, however this does mean it’s safe as you know it fits baby correctly as adjustments are made.

    I love this car seat and so does my son. We've tried 2 car seats and he prefers the simplicity by far. He can see what's going on if being pushed in the car seat, whilst still being comfy to fall asleep

    Car seat fit easily into the isofix base. But the age range on the seat is 0+ which we found very unsuitable as the seat is so up right, my child's head would fall forward when asleep in the chair. I'd recommend it for an older child with maybe more head strength. The straps are easy to adjust and clip in. But is quite a heavy seat in comparison to others.

    This Infant carrier style car seat is good and works well when teamed with the isofix base. I really did not like using this for the first 2 months. I felt baby’s head was just floating about and I just didn’t think there was enough support there. I feel a newborn insert could be developed to eliminate this. The seat is soft and padded, the colour coordinating cosytoes and hood Make this look good and match the Silver cross travel systems.

    Great product for being able to use in the multi system. When they are so young being able to just clip them in to pushchair rather than moving them is so helpful. It is a little heavy to take to and from car however it is only to be used up to about 9 months. Worth the short amount of time you need it for how comfortable baby is and making a new parents life easier

    I love this car seat, it looks great & my son always looks comfortable in it. We have had this seat from birth & the fact that my son is a chunky boy and still fits in it so well 6 months on says it all. Sadly we will be moving him into another car seat before long and that it only because of how heavy he is getting and nothing to do with the quality or design of this seat.

    We have driven long journeys with this car seat [ we did stop every 2 hours for 30 mins ] however G was happy to travel & seemed to be very comfortable all of the way there and home. I love how simple yet sleek it looks and compliments his pram beautifully.

    I really like the little cover for his feet too, it attaches so simple & speaking of simply it is very easy to fit into the car - this is a must for me as I’m not very good at things like this lol! We have nothing negative to say about this fantastic car seat, it’s such a shame he has to switch to another, I will be storing this away ready for baby number 2 :)

    A fab car seat which we chose so it can fit easily on the pioneer travel system. It looks smart and is really easy to fit and use. Baby loves it and settles well in it. However I don't like how easily his head flops forward when he is sleeping and I think the canopy could be a little bigger for when you use it as a pushchair attachment. Generally I think it's a great car seat, great quality and easy to use but definitely not perfect.
  • 2.25/5

    We found this car seat to be extremely heavy making it difficult to carry with the added weight of a baby. We used this car seat to transport our newborn home from hospital however it didn’t look comfortable or supportive. We stopped using this seat until he was around three months and able to hold his head up unsupported as only then it looked to be more comfortable. The straps are also tricky to get over the babies arms without disturbing them, so no use for a sleeping baby.
  • 4.13/5
    • Strengths:

      Keeps baby safe in car, fits on Silvercross wheels, removable newborn wedge keeps baby fairly flat.

    I got this carseat as part of a Silvercross package. It does the job in the car and is compatible with the Silvercross chassis which is handy. Our baby hated it as he got bigger, then we realised it has a wedge of foam inside for newborns and took this out, he sits more comfortably now although occasionally his head flops forward when he's sleeping.
  • 4.25/5
    • Strengths:

      Compact, snug and easy adjustable straps, easy to install

    Still using for our 9 month old, loads of room still, she's still comfy in it. All round good car seat. Beautiful design, matches our travel system pram.

    Baby would cry uncontrollably in this seat. His head was not supported at all in it even after silver cross sent out a newborn insert for it. Not fit for purpose really as was unable to use it. Got another car seat and baby was fine.

    Overall a great first car seat for baby. Can be used from newborn - around 15 months of age. A big bonus is that you can easily clip this pram onto any silvercross travel system! It’s also isofix compatible so fits in the car with one click and you have peace of mind knowing your baby is safe and secure. My only criticisms for this product is that it is quite expensive, especially if you buy the isofix base also and the straps to put baby in can be a little awkward and fiddly. But overall a great high quality product.

    We got this car seat in a bundle with the pram and isofix base. This car seat has several good aspects such as it looks very stylish, it attaches to the pram easily and we find that it is very simple to get baby in and out of. However, when our baby was newborn the seat did not seem to offer much support for newborn babies as it doesn’t have a proper head support that some other brands have. This wasn’t an issue as baby got older and from around 6-8 weeks he looked very comfortable. Also, the seat is extremely heavy which makes carrying it even a short distance difficult. Overall a good seat but we would definitely research other brands and seats for any other children we may have.

    Great it comes with newborn wedge and insert otherwise would have been too big for my newborn.
    Fairly easy to adjust for their size as they grow.
    It is quite bulky and heavy to carry just the car seat.

    My baby was not safe in this car seat, I was uncomfortable with it as soon as I put him in. He couldn’t breathe properly due to the angle of the head to body, his cry was muffled and he was struggling to breathe. I contacted silver cross who refunded and collected very quickly, excellent service but seems worrying that they did it so quickly. Also they have recently bought out an insert to correct that positioning, but are charging an extra £25 which is terrible!!
    Please test with your baby before buying. We bought a maxi cosi which immediately felt 100% better.

    At first we loved this car seat, with our newborn baby we thought silvercross had to be the best. However after a month of using it we started to struggle carrying him in this as it was just too heavy. Also very heavy moving the car seat with baby in from the pram frame to the car, I struggled so much pushing in the buttons and lifting at the same time, I had to stand behind the car seat lift and let him fall back on me cause if I stood infront of him he would nearly go backwards. Also when removing the newborn insert we found it to be very hard underneath. The car seat looks great especially with the different colour fabric to your model, and it's very easy to strap little one in and then easy to fix into the car.

    I would highly recommend this product. My son is 10 months old now and it still comfortable for him and very easy to fix into your car. We use the seatbelt option and find it very easy to fit in and take out.
