    I think the pricing is reasonable for what it is, as you are only able to use it till your baby reaches a certain stage then you have to get the next one up, as a single mummy this is very off putting.
    There is no way of picking the car seat up to carry by hand, the fact there is no kind of handle is very baffling and if I knew when purchasing I would of carried on looking.
    Adjusting the seat straps is an absolute nightmare, luckily they were fine how they were, I gave up after an hour of trying.
    I personally find pictures or simplified instructions easier to understand plus having a toddler more time saving, the instruction booklet provided was a complete waste of paper, I ended up spending more time trying to find a video on YouTube showing me.
    The only positive thing about this product is the option of tilting the seat.

    Brilliant car manufacturer however the car seat will not last until 4 for the average child, my little boy is not even 2 and having to buy a new seat already, quite annoyed as I bought 2.

    Really nice sturdy car seat seams to fit into the car seat very nicely. Love the fact that i can tip it back when my little one falls aslepp alothough it can be tri ky to tip. Comes with loads of attachment which mean it will last for a long time.

    I would recommend this product highly, it's such a bargain, it's not very expensive and it's definitely worth every penny. It's easy to use it's not complicated, as a first time mum I was nervous about finding the right car seat as some of them can be very confusing and expensive but the joie car seat is amazing. It's comfortable for my son too he loves sitting in his car seat. You can tilt the car seat to suit your child as it has 3 settings on it depending on how old your baby is and each stage is fantastic. I love this product.

    If you have to take out of the car a lot it is a bit of nuisance. Other than that it is a lovely little car seat. Easy clean, and my son seems to find it comfortable.

    I love the fact that this product will rear face or forward face and my little boy loves it too he loves facing forward and been able to look out of the windows. It is so easy to plug in and you don’t have the hassle of trying to get the little car seat in and out of the car as this one is easier to get baby out enabling you to leave it in the car.

    I absolutely adore my car seat! It’s so easy to get my little girl in and out off. She’s a growing girl so very handy that you can take the padding out and it practically grows with your child. Would recommend to any new mum.

    I absolutely love this car seat. My daughter is so comfortable in it and loves being able to look out the window. I love that it tilts even when it's forward facing and that it grows with my daughter until she is 4. Very reliable car seat would recommend to anyone.

    I love this car seat. Going from using stage 0 then 1 then 2 etc with my other two children this car seat is a refreshing change. The newborn insert means baby is nice and cosy and not going anywhere! And once the insert comes out there’s plenty of space but baby is still nice and secure. The seat has a clip that goes on the seatbelt to stop it from slacking during travel and something so simple does an amazing job at keeping the seat in place. The instructions on the side of the seat to put it in securely are nice and clear, the only downside being when the strap goes under the seat it’s a little fiddly to keep it in the correct slots and put the car seat down properly without the belt slipping out.

    Over all this chair is amazing value for money, it has a nice clean design and is very comfy for baby! Once in the seat is very secure and not going anywhere and I can see it lasting rear facing for a good while!

    The only negative is the fiddly strap when putting it in rear facing but once you’ve done it a few times you learn a few tricks to stop the belt slipping out.

    Would definitely recommend this car seat.

    We upgraded to this seat when our son was 11 months old and he is very comfortable in it. I like the fact it can rear face for longer and is built to last. It is good value for money. We travelled 6 hours on holiday to Cornwall and he was comfortable in this seat. Would recommend to anyone on a budget.

    I have a 5 door Audi A3 and this car seat works perfectly for me, seat belt doesn’t get in the way when moving my little one in and out(rear facing) (like it does in some cars) only problem I have found is it doesn’t work in a 3 door rear facing.

    This seat has been a lifesaver. It’s higher so she can see out of the windows, rear faces so no need to worry about safety. Very easy to fit and very sturdy. Easy to clean also which is a massive plus!

    I absolutely love this car seat we have 2 one for my 2 Year old and one for my one year old, it comes with a newborn insert and a head support which adds extra comfort to the car sear, it’s so easy to install in to the car and is also quite lightweight which makes it easier to move. It rear faces up to 15kg which makes it a fantastic product and my 2 year old is still rear facing in it with absolutely no problems.

  • 4.38/5
    • Strengths:

      Fully washable covers. Extended rear facing.

    A great mid range budget seat from a good name in car seat safety. Easy to install both rear and forward facing, and sits secure in the car even without isofix. Covers are fully washable, and easy enough to remove and put back on once dry. Slightly shorter than other stage 1 seats, so this was outgrown height wise here before it was too small for the weight. A great all rounder seat.

    Fab comfy car seat with lovely comfy inserts for baby, has a range of recline positions. Found this very easy to install and baby seems very comfortable and happy in it , sometimes the buckle cover comes off when putting baby in the seat but it just as easily goes back on again, would highly recommend.
  • 3.75/5

    The Joie car seat looks lovely - has an attractive grey fabric that works well for both genders, great price for two age groups but unfortunately the tilt the brand is advertising isn't what comes to mind when I think of this car seat. It doesn't tilt as much as advertised. Our 6lb baby seemed very lost in her seat, the ride from the hospital wasn't very pleasant, her head didn't seem secure. Even our midwife shared her concern for our child's safety since it didn't seem suitable for her size. We decided to return the car seat.

    The seat is great quality and looks very comfy and stylish. At first I was very daunted about fitting the seat as the manual was hard to understand but after watching the video on YouTube it was very simple but have only tried fitting it rear facing.

    We brought this car seat for my partners car as it dosent have isofix. It is perfect for that. Easy to fit so light to manoeuvre fron car to car. Very safe. My child is so comfortable in this chair would highly recommend this product. Personally joie are the best made cart seats by far ! We have the Gemm the Tilt and the joie stages and we are now looking to purchase the every stage fx! Would not buy any other brand. One thing I would say is that the prices get is a little steep but then again you carnt put a price on your child’s comfort & Saftey!

    Overall its a good product. You have to do some odd manoeuvrers to get it in and attached. But once it's in its in. The strap padding is quite grippy. Your child would need to be wearing some sort of clothing against the straps to protect.

    I have 2 of these seats, one for my 2 year old and one for my 1 year old both children are comfortable and like their seats, unfortunately they won’t last till 4 though as they have a short shell and will be outgrown by height before either on them then 4 but they have been good for a short term seat to last while I save for a longer lasting seat.

    My little one is using this car seat for about 1 year and we have been overall satisfied with this purchase. It s easy to install in the car, and what most satisfies me is that I can easily pull it forward while sitting on the front seat. This is a good quality car seat and the price is affordable. Another big plus I would give to the protections along the harnesses because if you have a super active baby trying to “escape”, he can’t hurt himself due to the softness of those protections. I would recommend the seat!
