We got this car seat for our 2.5 year old when she was 4 months and has fit in it amazingly the whole time she's used it. We opted for the spin 360 as we have a 3 door car and the because you can spin it once the child is in, makes it so practical for us. The bonus of this car seat is that it lasts for a long time (they advertise until age 4) until your child reaches the weight limit. So you definitely get your money's worth. Would 10/10 recommend, especially if you have a 3 door car!
Bought to replace our forward facing Maxi-Cosi Pearl, the Joie 360 spin allows your child to rear face up to age four, which makes it much safer in the event of an accident and complies with I-size regulations.
It has an integrated isofix base, so you don’t get stung paying for a separate base.
It’s really easy to use, with one lever to rotate the chair and another to recline it.
It can be used from birth with the newborn insert, which it comes with.
It won’t break the bank, costing less than half some of the similar car seats on the market.
The straps can be a little fiddly to do up as the buckle parts are quite small. This can make strapping in a reluctant toddler somewhat difficult.
The straps can’t be removed, which can make cleaning tricky in the event of an in-car vomit incident.
It weighs quite a lot, which isn’t a problem if it’s going to stay in one car for the majority of the time, but if you’re planning on switching it between two cars regularly you might want to take this into consideration.
I love this car seat and would buy it again. The cover is easily removable for cleaning, the spin function is easy to use and my daughter is comfortable sitting in it. It’s also more reasonably priced than other models.
Absolutely love my Joie 360, one of my best purchases, actually wished I’d of had this since birth. Easy to install, easy to use, it’s padded and secure and will last from birth till age 4. So much easier then those pram carry car seats especially if you’ve had a c-section. Would 100% recommend. I got mine for £185 in the Mothercare sale.
I love this car seat.
I find it really hard getting my son in regular seats without bashing his poor head on the car (don’t judge me, we’ve all been there) so this seat was the answer to my problems.
It’s so easy to turn and baby easily sits in to strap in and twist to correct position. It car rear and forward face which is a win win AND it’s isofox which was a necessity for me.
My only slight concerns would be that this is meant to be used up until about age 4 but it’s not the most spacious of seats as it sits fairly high in the car because of the chunky base. My son isn’t 2 yet but I’m not sure if it will realistically be comfortable for him up until he’s 4 years old but we will have to see. Another thing to mention is it’s extremely heavy because the isofix comes attached. If you have to swap cars regularly this is not the seat for you as it’s a mission in itself to move it. Finally, the padding on the strap between babies legs is a complete waste of time as it’s so difficult to keep on amd slips off pretty much every time you use the seat. It would be better if the padding was stitched to the actual seat cover so that it stayed in place.
I absolutely love this car seat, it makes life so much easier.. you can turn it which ever way you want to so no more bad backs! Able to just pop baby in and swivel forward or back .. my baby looks very comfy whilst being in there.. the recline is also a great aspect to the car seat .. one thing that is slightly a downer is when the car seat is facing back it’s bit fiddly locating the swivel leaver, there should be one on the back of the car seat to make this much more easier however this isn’t a major con and I’d defo reccomend it
We bought this product purely because it was on off and I knew it was the car seat I wanted. Two of my friends had it and had recommended it.
We chose not to get it installed on purchase as my little girl was still in her stage 0 car seat and at the time it seemed easier. However, we did end up installing around a week later as she's a big girl and was getting very heavy in her carry car seat . She was still only around 8 weeks old at this point, but I didn't have any worries about putting her in this as the padded insterts for newborns is amazing. She always looked comfortable and it reclined enough for her to sleep comfortably. It was easy to install and feels really sturdy.
The straps are easy to adjust, I loosen them every time I get her out so it's easier to put her back in. The thing that bugs me most is how low down the lever is to swivel the seat, but once you get used to it, it doesn't really make a difference. I would choose this product again and again and would 100% recommend to anybody for their child.
Easy to use, adjustable head rest, spin works a treat as I have a bad back, clips in and out the car
It’s quite heavy

I absolutely love this product, I suffer from bad back pain so putting a toddler in and out a car can be very strenuous however with this car seat it is a life changer for me with no discomfort putting my child in and out of the car, I love how you can recline the car seat and also have it rear facing as well as front facing as the child gets older, it clips in and out on the isofix very easily however it is quite heavy compared to other car seats
The fact you can spin it to put baby in is definitely a strength I don’t have to climb to get baby i
No swivel button on back of seat so have to reach to turn

Overall this car seat is amazing baby is comfy and Sucre in the seat. The 360 is amazing for our 2 door car meaning we don’t have to climb to get baby in and out. It’s large and a little bulky but amazingly safe and grows with baby so definitely value for money. A downside to the product is that it dosnt have a button on the back of the seat to swivel it, so you have to reach to the front to turn the chair which isn’t a big weakness just on the next model something they could add to make it better. I would 100% reccomend this product!
This is a great car seat. The 360 version is a little pricier but it is definitely worth the extra money. We have a standard Joie car seat and a 360 and we fight over the 360 for its ease of access and retrieval. This is especially helpful for parents/caregivers with bad backs.
Although it is a dearer Joie model, it is reasonably priced on comparison to other 360 car seats on the market.
I highly recommend the Joie 360 Spin!
Absolutely love this. My husband loves it to and he is useless with all baby items ie the other carseat and both pushchair and pram we have. It is a delight to not bend over and twist my back when putting baby in seat. It looks extremely comfortable for her to sit in and she settles straight away in it. Her position looks great when she's in the chair.
I had this car seat bought for us and it's brilliant to use and easy to get my son in and out of the car wish I got it sooner my nan finds it useful to get my son out and about if I'm working and it's so easy to install and move from car to car if needed
Installation, access to put baby in and get out, feels expensive and safe!
When rear facing it can be difficult to reach the handle to spin the seat

We brought this seat when my little boy was 5 months old and its been great, hes nearly 3. It's a big car seat but feels safe and not flimsy in any way. My little boy has always been on the chubby side and has still plenty of space to grow into this.
Helpful for a bad back and it will follow my daughter all the way up to 4 years old
I haven’t found any faults so far!

We got this car seat when Emmy daughter was 6 weeks old because I wanted something that was securely in the car at all times. I also have a bad back since having me little one and the 360 element of this car seat is really useful for easing this rather than having to lean in with the usual car seats.
My daughter always look comfortable in this car seat too!
Shoulder straps can be difficult to get in the right place.

I think the main reason most people opt for this car seat is the spin feature and it really is worth it. Not only can you spin it towards the open door but if you are in a parking space and the room is limited at the door side you can spin it towards the centre of the car to get baby out that way. It has helped my back massively.
My baby girl is 6 months and loves the seat, she can see out of the window and she looks very comfortable.
On a couple of occasions she has fallen asleep with her head forward which isn't ideal however this is easily resolved by moving her head back.
The only thing I find hard at times is getting the shoulder straps in the right place. The pads sit right at the top of the seat and don't move.
I would definitely buy this seat again if I was shopping for a new car seat.
Can be hard at first with a small baby to adjust seat so they’re not sat forward in it

I had always wanted a joie 360 so when I was gifted some money when my daughter was first born I went ahead and got one! And I love it, I have a back problem so leaning over is hard and picking up heavy items. This is so easy, just pop her in strap her in, use the lever to put her rear facing and when we are where we need to be turn her towards time. She must love it as she’s alwahs comfy enough to fall asleep in any car journey! I don’t use my baby car seat that goes with my pushchair because I much prefer the ease of using this car seat!
I absolutely love this product, after having a newborn 0+ carseat that was just done by a seatbelt i didn't feel my son was secure enough so i went looking, and i looked at LOADS, but this carseat ticked all the boxes! I love that it can be isofix forward and rear facing! And it has the isofix base as well as the clip in to the car seats. Aswell as being secure that way i love how secure the actual seat is for my son and there are so many inserts for different stages of his growth so it can grow with him and be comfortable for his needs at the stage he is at. The fact that you can also turn it to face outwards to the door when puttinf baby in and out of the carseat IS BRILLIANT it helps ssve all that fuss and headache of trying to bend your arms and body in awkward ways that it just shouldn't be doing just to put the baby in the carseat 😂 its so easy and makes the whole process alot more quicker and less fiddly!
We bought this seat just after Xmas as our little girl hated sitting her existing car seat. From the second we tried her in it she has settled down a lot in the car and she can see out of the window! So much easier to get her in and out of the car now!
I think this car seat has been one of the best baby items I have purchased. The function of the 360 spin makes it so easy to get baby in and out of the car. The seat is high quality which you can see and feel. Also we found it really good that it has so many inserts to allow it to go from new baby to toddler... with comfort at each stage.
Life has been so much easier since we purchased the 360. We bought it when my daughter was 6 months old and we're still using it 1 year on and plan to for a couple more years yet. I have a small car so being able to turn the seat is a game changer for me. It's sturdy, comfortable and easily adjustable. It's easy to transfer between cars although it is quite heavy so if you're not fit and able then you would need help. The chair does tilt back but not too far. It's perfect now she is older but at 6 months i'd like to have had the option to tilt it back further. This seat can be front or rear facing.
I can’t say enough, to enough people how much I love this car seat. My little man is a tank! He weighs a tonne and so putting him in and out of the car seat used to really hurt my back. I got this when I fell pregnant again and my back pain got worse but once we started using the spin life was soooo much easier! We use it in mine and my parents car and being isofix makes it super easy to move too- love it!
Relatively easy to use and brilliant to turn your child around to get them out. The buttons can be a bit fiddly to get your hand into to turn though. Really great design and stylish to look at. It’s pretty pricey but I would say it’s worth it.
I absolutely love this seat!! Being a mum with a 3 door car it gets to be a struggle getting my little one in and out! However with this he can still be rear facing as well as easy to get out! My only fault is the spin button being on the front on the seat meaning when it is rear facing you do have to really reach to press it to spin it back round but other than that I think this excellent value for money. The style and colours are very classy, very easy to clean and just couldn’t recommend enough!
