    I love this car seat, it’s easy to use, very safe looking and very comfortable. My little boy seems to like it too. Love the fact it spins, makes it so much easier to get my little one in and out the car, can face him forward or backwards. There’s only one thing I don’t like and that’s the recline, it doesn’t have a great recline and my little one is prone to falling asleep in the car so when he does his head drops forwards. Which isn’t good. I have to pull over and push it back which is less than ideal. Other than this, it’s a good concept and a nice seat.

    I bought the Joie 360, from Halfords whilst it was on offer for £147 back in June. The seat is easy to install even without instructions. I removed the newborn insert as my daughter was 9 months old when purchased. It took a bit of fiddling around with the head rest and the straps to make sure my daughter's head didn't fall forward whilst driving. Now I've found what level they should be at my daughter is very comfortable in the seat. When rear facing it is a little fiddly to access the control to spin the seat but once you get the hang of it, it is not a problem. I have always found having a car seat that spins on an axsis makes getting baby in and out for the car much easier. Although if I had paid the usual £250 I would have been disappointed in the seat due to the lack of recline on the seat.

    I love this car seat. My boy always looks so comfortable when in it. It’s really easy to use. Shame it’s so bulky that it takes all the seat up. But best for money with how long it lasts

    I love the Joie 360 car seat! It’s so easy to turn the seat around to put my baby in and take her out of the car. It’s a great price for lasting 4 years too. Originally my parents bought one as they’d be looking after my daughter a lot, and we ended up buying one too as it was just brilliant. Well worth the investment. Only thing is it’s quite bulky and means the front passenger doesn’t have much legroom as the seat can’t go very far back (we have a Toyota auris).

    We bought this seat after our son outgrew his first one very quickly and became uncomfortable in it. The joie is a great seat to have, it takes about 10 mins to set up but once it is in the car it is so simple to use, I never realised but how much I needed to be able to turn the seat towards the door, it’s really a life saver with wriggly babies. My son seems very comfortable in the seat and always drifts off in it, even when I don’t want him to haha. This seat I should pricey but as it spins fully and can be used forward facing it is an investment I will get a lot of use from. Would definitely recommend

    We had this bought for us and I am so glad we did!
    My husband and I have both had our backs go over little things over the last few years and lifting a child in and out over a seatbelt was really not going to help.
    This turns so easily to face you (either side of the car) making it so easy to put a child in or out.. I've even managed it Even if they are fast asleep!
    The seat reclines well and although I was warned that our little one may have their head flop forward a little, we were delighted when in fact its the opposite and her head if back in a comfortable position and definitely doesn't roll forward!
    She looks very content and comfortable in it and we don't have a battle to strap her in..in fact she seems to want to go in it!
    I would definitely recommend this car seat!
    The additional cost in comparison to others was that others is a Couple of osteopath appointments... I know which I'd rather pay for!

    My friend had this car seat for my 1 yo godson, seeing it in action I thought I really need one of these for my newborn! I ordered from Littlewoods a little bit over priced at just over £300! But none the less its a great product! The product arrived in a large box which was quite hard to handle on my own but wasn't impossible. I read through the instructions and set to installing it in my car. Within a matter of 3 minutes it was done! So so easy and the instructions are very clear. My little boy found comfort in it from day 1, we removed the wedge under the padding when he was 3 months. He's now 4 months and tries to sit up to look out of the window. So the incline and decline function is fab! My fave feature though of course has to be the fact that it spins! I suffer with a bad back and this just takes the pain out of an everyday task. I recommend it to everyone its great.

    This is a fantastic car seat which I have had since my Daughter was 9 months old (now 18 months). She started facing backwards and the change in angles allowed her to rest easier on longer journeys. She is now facing frontwards and is just as comfortable and the adjustments you can make as your child grows is brilliant and reassuring as although it's a pricey car seat it's an investment for years to come. Only down side is when my Daughter was facing backwards, it was a tight squeeze between the Joie car seat and the car seat making it fiddly to reach the button to turn the seat.

    I purchased 2 of these car seats for my twins as there carry seats where getting far to heavy ! Best decision we have made they have made our lives so much easier and our journeys so much nicer both babies are very happy with there new seats and there is still room for my 5 year old to sit comfortably in the middle.

    Purchased this for my almost 2 year old as I have been struggling to put him in the joie seat we already have (which doesn't spin!). Really easy to fit with the isofix and looks trendy. Little boy seems comfy in it and we especially like that it tilts.
    So much easier to put my son in the car now whilst facing the door and fasten him in safely! Can face rear or forward without changing the tilt.
    Will definitely be buying another for my youngest. Worth every penny.

    We decided to choose a spinning seat for the ease of use when loading our little boy into the car. The handle to turn is in the perfect place making it really easy to use and our little boy finds it really comfy. He is higher up than his old maxi cosi pearl so he can see out of the window which he seems to enjoy. I could not imagine having a seat where I would have to awkwardly turn my body to put him in. Not many colours to pick from but don’t let that put you off - it’s so easy to use!

    This car seat is brilliant. We struggle with our baby as he is large for his age but this car seat is ideal. Especially with the rotate when trying to put a sleeping baby in and out of car without waking. Would definitely recommend.

    I wish I had bought this when my little one was a new born! I bought the Joie 360 spin when my little one when to forward facing at 9 months, I had tried out a couple of forward facing car seats from friends to see which one I liked, but I couldn’t gel with any! Then I came across the Joie 360 spin, I suffer with a bad back and the spin is the best thing so I’m not reaching over him to fasten his harness and straining myself. It has little hook holders for the clips so that when you put your baby in they aren’t sitting on the harness. The recline is only slight but when they are sleeping makes such a difference. Everyone comments on how great the seat is and how easy it is to put him into it. One car seat worth buying!!!

    We as parents love the Joie 360.
    It’s really comfortable for our little boy. He falls asleep instantly when we are out and about driving.
    Super easy to install and even the grandparents find it easy to turn and fit him in.
    This is our 3rd car seat that we’ve had for our little boy and it’s by far the best one we’ve had. Not once has he head flopped forward when sleeping, this is brilliant for me as I always panicked in the previous seat as he always flopped forward.

    Highly recommend

    Love this car seat, we have the red one and it's very nice. My daughter always looks very comfortable, she still naps at 2 and she always falls asleep very easy in this car seat. Her head is well supported and she is always happy to get in it. It's very easy to control and spins effortlessly. It's very sturdy but we often move it between the cars and although it is easy to fit it's quite heavy.

    This is a great car seat.
    We started using it after the size 0. As we liked being able to remove our size 0 seat.
    We love the rotation function - however the handle to rotate the seat is low & it's hard to reach when the seat is rear facing.
    Isofix base means once fitted you never have to worry if it's secure. I wish it went higher than 15kg. I would recommend this seat.

  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Ease of putting in child, being able to twist to face the passenger door is very helpful

    • Weaknesses:

      Isofix base is a little wobbly if you want to be able to use forward and rear facing

    We brought this car initially because it has the ability to be rear facing as well as forward, and studies show the longer your child can face the rear the safer. We liked the added perk of the "twist" as we could turn it to the door to place the child in, and being 8 months pregnant this is a massive help as I'm not having to bend over and twist to get him in. And being able to recline the car seat was a must for us, so if we went on a lot going journey we knew our little boys head wouldn't be rolling
    around or resting in his chest. The seat seems incredibly comfy, with extra padding and head rests you can either move or take out to suit your child's age. My only issues with the car seat would be, that the isofix can be wobbly if you want to be able to use the car seat forward and rear facing. We had to choose the position we wanted our seat in and then push it right back into the car chair to stop it rattling around. We knew a little wobble was normal, as it's designed to take any impact shock if we did have a crash, rather than the child, however we felt it was too wobbly if a little space away from the car chair. (This could just be my cat I have a vauxhall astra). The only other thing I would say is the removable strap covers may be problematic for children with long hair. Under the padding there seems to be a rubber lining which sits on your child's shoulders I imagine to give extra grip, and stop your child from escaping, however if hair gets under the strap too, it also grips that and can be s little painful for your child to get it out.
    Over all I'm very happy with our car seat, it is slightly on the pricier side, although I believe that is due to the isofix base. And I believe it is worth the money for the comfort, ease of putting your child in, and the option of using from birth.

    Love this car seat makes getting my daughter in and out the car so much easier due to its 360° spin feature especially with a bad back. She looks so comfortable even on a longer car journey and had no problem with her head flopping forward. Used since her birth. My friends who are expecting are now investing in this seat for there little ones.

    We purchased this car seat as we wanted a seat that would last us a few years. The price was very reasonable and after looking at a few different ones this had everything we wanted for a great price. The spin feature makes getting baby into the car very easy and the inserts make the seat nice and snug for newborns. It also has the isofix base so you can be sure the seat is in correctly. We have the seat on red which looks really nice and stylish.

    We absolutely love this car seat and it makes it better that it is one of the most competitively priced 360 spin seats around! I like the ease of getting a squirming toddler in with a simple touch of a lever, and how comfy they look when they’re in! The material is of good quality and seems to wear very well - we have been using it for almost 2 years now! The one downside we have found is that the belt does seem to get twisted and needs fixed fairly regularly; this is a very small gripe as in every other aspect we would rate this seat 10/10!!

    This is the perfect car seat for us. It is really easy to get our son in and out of, especially when he is sleeping, we can usually get him out of the car seat and into the house without waking him! I am also finding this much easier being pregnant, as I’m not having to get inside the car to get my son into the seat. It’s also great being isofix as easy to move between different cars and secures easily!

    We live the 360 so easy to get in and out of the car, the fact it's all together and no separate base helps. I love how easy it is to get them in and out of it by turning it round. It seems pretty comfortable as well my two year old used it for a while and now my 10 month uses it and seems just as comfortable for both of them. Would definitely recommend to other parents looking for a car seat!

    Love this car seat it’s the best we’ve bought, our son is very comfy in it, and has plenty of room to grow. Love the fact it turns to make placing and removing little ones from it a lot easier.
