    I bought this for my ford focus and the doorway seems to be quite narrow and I had to get my arms in a weird position to get my child out.

    Now I can spin him to face me which is so much better, it installs easy and light enough to transfer between cars.

    Only downside is I feel the recline isn't big enough, especially rearward facing.

    Love this car seat and so does my daughter. We started using this when she was about 7 months old and we wish we used it sooner. My daughter looks so comfy in it and as soon as we walk up to the car and she sees it she actually puts her hands out to climb into it. The rotation is a god send. So many times someone has parked close and luckily I can spin it to face me and still manage to get her in and strap her in properly. The 5 point harness makes it easy to strap her in and she also looks comfortable and I know she's safe.
    A couple of negatives (although I would 100% still buy it again) is that it is quite bulky. When moving it to different cars i do struggle sometimes, not the fact that it's really heavy but it's just big and awkward. We have a VW Tiguan and it fits nicely in it. My partner managed to get it in a 3 door Audi A1 but struggled. There's no way I would have been able to do that. I think it's a perfect car seat if you don't plan on moving car to car although it's so easy to fix in (once you've managed to get it in the car) It's literally 2 hooks which clip in the isofix points and go green so you know it's secure, and then the support leg which again goes green.
    I also fins the button to rotate it is quite close to the button to alter the back position. Once you use it a few times you get used to it though.

    Overall, a brilliant car seat, yes a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and that is quality.

    I got this for my car after a lot of research. It was a lot of money to pay but I really like it. It spins so easily and can get my baby in easily without any hassle. He is still rear facing and will stay that way until 4 in this car seat (which is a bonus)
    The only con is that is doesn’t recline as much as I’d like it to

    I love love this car seat. I should have bought this one before my baby was born as her current pram/pushchair is usable from birth too. Would have saved me hundreds of pounds had I done this.

    Car seat is very sturdy. I don't find it bulky at all like everyone else said. Easy to get baby in and out.

    The only downside is your baby head could fell forward when they're sleeping without the wedge. So either leave the wedge on or keep pushing their head back when they're asleep.

    My daughter also just started sitting so she won't lay back to be tucked in. She loves it that's it's higher though so she can see outside.

    We bought this for our one year old. Now 2. It's been a great carseat. Love the fact it's so easy to get my child in and out because of the spin feature.
    No head flop when she falls asleep. It's great that it's extended rear facing (the safest option up to at least for years) to possibly 4 years old.

    Lovely car seat, bout when daughter was 9 months as didn't like being low in the travel system car seat anymore. Baby also preferred the comfort of this car seat and we can use it for 2 year old cousin as it can be adjusted to him. This is great as it means less hassle with car seats!

    We bought this car seat when our daughter had grown out of the travel system baby car seat - around 9/10 months old.
    The 360° spin function is a game changer, especially when you're in a tighter parking spot and you don't have so much room to get your little one in and out.
    I was initially concerned about how safe a spinning car seat would be, but I honestly have no worries about this any more - the seat clearly clicks in place when it is properly in a forward or backward position. It doesn't lock when its side facing, but it also doesn't move much when you're putting your child in, so again, this just isn't a problem.
    We didn't use the newborn padding, but even as you remove all the extra layers with your growing child, it seems to be well cushioned and comfortable for them. Although it is very annoying that the seat belt fastener pad comes loose (or is pulled off totally and thrown out the car!) so easily. I have had to buy replacements as we've already lost one! But thankfully they weren't too expensive.
    Compared to similar spinning models, the price of this makes it great value. This model is never going to be cheap, but it's one of the cheapest in its category, and you don't feel like you're missing out on any feature or function from one that is £100 more expensive!
    My daughter now 18 months old and is quite comfy in the seat without additional padding, and has plenty of room to grow in it still.
    I wouldn't recommend this seat if you have to share between cars, as it's heavy and awkward to move. It is also an ISOFIX base only.

    What can i say, brilliant car seat it has made my life so much easier, the spin feature is excellent when parked in tight spots as makes life so much easier when getting my son in and out of the car, everything is easily washable and tilt function and spin is so simple and easy to use really can't rate this product highly enough!! My son loves it too :).

    360 allows you to easily access the seat. Snug cushioning from birth up.
    Only down fall is it is quite large so makes it difficult for people to sit in front seat of car.

    We bought this car seat fairly soon after buying a standard car seat for our baby. It was recommended and we were told it would make moving baby in/out of the car much easier. It did just that...the spin feature is brilliant, no more trying to lean over baby to fasten the straps or trying to lift baby into their seat sideways. The spin feature allows you to turn the car seat to face you as you pop baby into the seat and fasten the straps. The seat is padded and has various inserts and adjustments so the seat grows with your baby. It’s brilliant, I LOVE it.

    The Joie 360 red car seat is an absolute 5* winner. This affordable swivel chair is a godsend when strapping in your little one, especially when they are wriggling. It has been such a game changer as it is so easy to use and easily transferable for other cars so that my little lady can travel in style and comfort each time. Even the gran parents find it easy to use.

    One of the major benefits of this seat is that all of the seat covers are removable and easy to wash, superb when you have a growing, messy toddler like mine. The straps are comfortable and the removable pads mean that it remains comfortable for smaller toddlers.

    It is hard to find many faults with this seat at all as it is reasonably priced and feels sturdy and safe. My only criticism would be the middle belt cushion is detachable and it tends to have a mind of its own, detaching regularly when getting in and out but never whilst in use.

    A superb addition to our life and will definitely be purchasing for number 2.

    Love this car seat! Looks super comfortable for my little one, very padded. Feels safe to use. I found this really easy to install and use on a daily basis, lasts rear facing for an extended period of time which is great. The only downfall is that when my baby is asleep his head seems to fall forward, i have tried taking one of the insters out which has improved it slightly!

    We have this seat for my son, it’s very sturdy and I feel it will protect my son well in any collisions. The seat is a really good quality used, down to the straps, fabric and base.

    When I was pregnant with our second child this seat was my life saver. Our son is a big boy and is heavy so lifting him in and out of the car is hard work, but with my son facing me, it helped so much as I wasn’t twisting or bending to get him in the car.

    We find it amazing it spins 360, as some people park too close to you so I just put my son in through the other door and turn the seat to face whatever way my son is getting in at.

    It’s a very large seat so if you have 3 children you would struggle to get a child to sit in the middle of the car next to the 360 spin as there is just not enough room and we have a SUV so we already have a large car.

    All in all I would defiantly buy this seat again when my daughter goes into her next size car chair.

    Totally worth the money as it grows with child. 360 spin motion makes it so easy to get child in and out of seat. It's tricky to know which inserts to remove and when as child grows, bit of trial and error to see what works. Child can sometimes slumb over chin down if sleeping.

    Bought the Joie 360 spin for my first baby. Seat is comfortable and the spin feature is really handy for my Nissan Juke and it’s narrow doors. Found it was the best fit for my car compared to some of the Other seats I tried. Although my baby seems really comfortable I do think the recline could be improved as I don’t think it reclines back far enough. Even with this I would definitely recommend this seat.

    Thus is by far the best baby product I've ever bought. It was expensive when I purchased it but in saying that It has made my life so much easier it's untrue. I can quickly pop my daughter in and twirl the seat round and off we go. Whilst other car seats are ok this just aids in making parents lives that little bit less stressful. I can't recommend this seat enough and do to anyone that will listen. Forward and rear facing is a breeze and as with all products I buy for my daughter I look for safety first but next is comfort. I wouldn't put her in anything I didn't feel would be comfy and this seat yes is expensive but she is so comfy and 9 out of 10 times will go straight to sleep. So I feel like it's well worth the money. Also the Inserts come out and can be easily wiped or washed. My daughter forward faces now and I just find she is so happy when in this seat it can be reclined when needed and I love it. Would highly highly recommend

    No regrets spending more on this 360 car seat! Easy to use, aesthetically pleasing and my son always looks comfortable.
    As one of the cheaper options in the 360 ranges out there, in bad resivations, but I'm so glad I didn't spend up to £400 on another brand! This has been brilliant.

    We bought this car seat for our main car and it is excellent in every way. I like that is isofix it’s feels more secure. The car seat is designed for use from birth - 5 years and the seat is well padded. You simply remove bits of the padded liner as your child gets bigger. We used this from 9 months and the seat is well padded and comfortable. The harness is very secure and is easily adjustable using the button underneath the crotch strap to loosen the straps. The seat has additional side impact protection for added safety. Getting baby in and out of the seat is easy, simply use the lower button on the front of the seat to turn the seat to face you, put baby in and secure them. Using the same list button you can then spin the seat to face rearward or forward. The Joie Slin 360 has three recline positions using the upper button on the front of the seat. It is excellent quality and superb value for money

    So my son was born at 6lb 3oz. He was (And still is) a petite baby. I bought this car seat after seeing it was recommended for newborn to 4 years (approx). My husband and I loved the 360 ability although the car seat is bulky. It is easy to fix and comes with layers of padding to accommodate newborns and older babies. It's a bit annoying to move a sleeping baby from car to pushchair/cot as well because he would wake up whenever he was removed from the seat. The second time we used it, I found my newborn slumped over in his car seat. Even with the newborn insert; there is not enough recline for a small baby. I went out that same day and purchased a baby carrier car seat. We started using the 360 again when baby was 6 months old and he loves it now. It's a much better fit and he loves sitting up and looking outside.
    I will use it in rear facing position for as long as I can and I love that this car seat has that option.

    We adore this car seat so much so that when we needed a second we didn’t even entertain anything else. We have used the car seat from newborn with the insert and at just over a year are still using it to rear face. We use it several times a day usually for short journeys and always excellent. We do occasionally do longer journeys usually around 5 or 6 times a year and again fab for these journeys too. My LO finds it very comfortable and on long journeys often sleeps the vast majority of the way.

    This is a good car seat, I like not having to haul a car seat in and out all the time. The spin works well and is easy to use once you’ve learnt where the clip is (it’s very close to the recline clip so takes some practise to get the right one!). The recline is barely worth it, each setting makes little difference. It was also a bit big for my newborn when we first brought him home (and he was a good size) but that may be the same for most car seats. Overall it’s a fairly expensive car seat but is an investment as it’ll last so long, and the design is really nice.
