    We brought this as a spare seat for the grandparents car. I managed to get it on a really good deal for about £90 from boots. I thought this was great value for money as it should last my son until 8 and rear faces until approx 4, as I don’t want to turn him forward facing before.

    The seat is very roomy and my tall 2 year old is very happy and comfortable in it. It’s also not as heavy as other seats if we ever need to move it. The seat covers are all fully washable too which is a bonus.

    The only downside I have found is the seat is quite bulky. It can only be used rear facing in one seating position and in a 3 door car we have now found the headrest is catching on the front seat so when we next need to extend it it may not fit (my mum is only short too so her seat is right forward). The cord to tighten the straps can also be hard to access.

    Overall I would highly recommend this seat and have already recommended it to friends. It is excellent value for money for the length of time it lasts and feels very safe.

    I love this carseat. I got it for my son when he turned 2 as I wanted to keep him rearfacing and had only heard good things said about joie carseats. My son is now 4 and we still love it.

    Very happy with this car seat. We managed to find it for £99 in Halfords so very affordable considering it lasts till my child is 7 and rear faces till 4.
    I love that it’s stylish, comfortable and easy to install.
  • 4.50/5

    I got this on sale for £99 and it was definitely worth it. I was shopping about for a safe cheapish car seat and this delighted me.
    My one year old is so comfortable she falls asleep almost every time she’s in it.

    Issues, it’s not great with a small car, I can’t get it to recline right back due to a shorter seatbelt so have had to order extenders which I’m wary of installing for safety purposes. As a result naps always seem to end in the little one waking when the car breaks as her head jerks.

    Easy to use car seat, my child has enjoyed using it but sometimes the straps twist and it makes it difficult to strap my child in.
  • 4.88/5
    • Strengths:

      Seat is easy to fit, can be done in seconds

    • Weaknesses:

      The part for tightening the chest belts is in reach of child and so they can tighten themselves

    Brilliant seat, so easy to install in to the car both farwards and rear facing.
    Everything is pretty straight farwards and easy to do..
    Can be a pain to clean properly but still easy enough to take covers off and on. The back part of the cover (where babies back/bottom is) has been leaving a mark/creese on my toddler but nothing too bad!
    Very safe and sterdy car seat, will Definitly get another for my next!
  • 4.38/5
    • Strengths:

    Great seat, used this since my daughter was born and have been very happy with it although it does take up a lot of room meaning noone really sits in the seat infront of it. Also find it can be a pain to fit in car with seatbelts that arw on the shorter side of length even in cars approved to fit this seat, so can be a fiddle to get back in if needed to take it out. Otherwise i love it.

    We got this seat when my son was 1 he is still rear facing at 2.5 years and will be staying that way till 4... this seat is fantastic for rear facing but the harness doesn’t do well in ff tests... my son loves the seat as it’s higher up than a infant carrier so can see out windows he is comfortable and safe in the seat and it’s easy to install in the car

    This car seat is great as it is padded and seems very protective of baby, it is easy to install in the car and baby seems happy when in it. The extra inserts for padding/new baby are very helpful. Seems a good solid car seat, my only concerns are that my daughter seems able to get her arms out of the actual restraints which is worrying. However it does not tempt me to buy a new car seat as she seems settled and comfortable in it, especially when considering the price

    Brought this for my 16 month old when she grew out of her newborn seat 10 months ago. She finds it very comfortable and it easy to change between the different stages. Only downside is that it is quite chunky and bulky

    I brought this car seat as my sons head flopped in his newborn seat. It’s lovely, smart and comfy. As soon as we moved my son over to this seat, he sat better and looked comfy in it. It is quite chunky.

    We bought this chair when our little boy was 12 months. It was easy enough to install via the seat belt and felt sturdy. We have a Ford focus and it was a snug fit. It may be worth checking compatability with your car model if opting for seat belt installation. The chair can be used rear and forward facing. We loved that the seat had various seat settings that grow with the child, and these are easy enough to change. I like the fit when my boy is in the chair, I'm confident he is safe and he always looks comfy. The only negative I have is that the fabric bobbled quite quickly and looked worn. We have the grey chair, my friend had the black and didn't have this issue so maybe it's worth opting for the darker colours.

    Overall we are happy with this product, the price was reasonable and we are happy we won't need to buy another seat for a few years.

    This item is really comfortable my little girl, she's been in it since 8months old and she is now 15months. I like how everythink can be altered - headrest / straps and the crotch pad is so thick so it protects her legs really well from the buckle.

    Could not be happier with this car seat! bought this to go into my mums car for my son who is 9 months old and it is great! It is so passed and comfortable and extremely easy to use! When fitting the car seat in the car, it could not have been simpler! By following the instructions we had it fitted forward facing in no time! The instructions to have it rear facing look very easy too!
    My son is so comfortable in this car seat and falls asleep all the time in it! Definitely worth the money spent!

    We have this car seat for our daughter who looks like she is surrounded by loads of padding when she is in the seat. This fills me with plenty of confidence with my daughter now forward facing! We did only buy one however it is quite heavy to move in between cars. We do like this car seat enough to buy another one for our other car though!! I think the price is really reasonable for an isofix base car seat! Also looks very smart! :)

    We’ve been using the car seat from 2016 when my daughter was 1 until now, it’s been great for every stage so far. My daughter is nearly 4 and still able to rear face as she is only 15kg. The seat is big, and takes up a lot of room in my small car which is the only downside for us.
  • 4.75/5
    • Strengths:

      It’s adaptable to the child’s age, height and weight.

    • Weaknesses:

      If you want to move it between cars it can be a bit of a faff to put in and out.

    We purchased this car seat for my daughter when she was around 5 months because she absolutely hated the infant carrier we had. This was brilliant, so comfy for a baby and has grown with her (she is now 4). I really like that the car seat grows with your child and that it is rear facing. It is a brilliant car seat which is highly rated on safety, also at the lower end of the price range for a car seat of its type:

    Bought this car seat after joining an extended rear facing group and I'm so glad I did! We bought two, one for my car and one for an inbetween.
    My son is on the higher percentiles so it won't last as long rear facing as the average but don't be put off by that cos I'm sure I'll get my money's worth from them both and then move onto a higher weight ERF carseat.
    It's such an easy seat to install, the instructions were very straightforward and it has pictures on the sides and back of the seat for reference too.
    My son looked so much more comfortable straightaway than in his infant carrier. He is now no longer scrunched up and his body sits up straight so not as much worry about his breathing, like with an infant carrier- obviously I still follow guidelines.
    It comes in a great range of colours, I have the grey for my car and blue as the inbetween.
    Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    I love how easy the seat is to use and it’s ability to grow with my little girl, she isn’t a fan of the car but since having this seat she travels a lot better. The car seat is quite large and bulky compared to others but given the affordability and previous reviews I had read I was confident that the seat was Secure and safe. I’ve had numerous brands of seats over the years and this by far exceeds all my needs and expectations
