    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:

    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.

    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!

    I have bought two of these car seats as a second for grandparents. I like how it is rear facing for longer than some of the other options out there and is really comfy with lots of options for padding etc. So far my little one is happy and comfortable.

    Bought this car seat as I liked the idea that it had multi positions for my son. I had thought that the selling point of 4 positions meant that I'd be able to alter the position of my son so he could be upright or laying down. Sadly that's not the case. When rear facing there is only one position. Since turning my son forward facing I have found out that the 3 positions that the seat can go in are all related to sitting the seat up more as the child grows. The position of the seat means that my son's head falls forward when he falls asleep rather than being able to rest back. It is quite difficult to move the shoulder position of the harness but obviously this isn't something you need to do regularly. Once the seat is fitted it's nice to just be able to leave it there. It's very easy to tighten and loosen the harness straps as needed and my son loves that he can see so much in this car seat. The instructions could do with being a bit more explanatory but once you've figured it out it is easy to fit.

    After trying a few products we bought this one. It's easy to put into the car either rear facing or forward facing and it's not only a lovely style but so easy to adjust and well cushioned and padded also. The recline could be better as it doesn't lay as flat as I'd like it too but overall its an amazing product and I've recommended to all my friends with little ones.

    I’ve used this car seat for both of my children from the age of 9 Months. Rear facing it was easy to install and comfortable for my children. The restraints fitted perfectly and were easy to adjust. I felt they were safe. Forward facing it was again comfortable and easy to manoeuvre into the 3 seating positions. The straps were easily adjusted and easy to tighten. It was also easy to fit into the car. I would highly recommend.

    The product was great got a super deal at my local Mothercare to purchase

    I loved the way it looks and material feels fab on little one .

    I would say this car seat was hard for me to personally install but I have two left hands however Mothercare have been happy to move the seating around and make all the changes.

    He looks super comfy but only let down is the head fallling down

    Lovely seat, enabling rear facing to 18kg, had to buy seat for my youngest as she was at the height limit for her infant seat, this was on offer for £60 and so I brought it. Lovely, my little one looks comfortable in it too. Did have a problem with material bobbling after one wash, I emailed joie who sent me another set of covers so excellent customer service too.

    I purchased this seat when my little one was about 7 months old as he was looking uncomfortable in his stage 0 seat. I chose this model as it offered extended rear facing without the price tag of many of the others, and a friend had recommended. I purchased online from Mothercare, it arrived boxed with all the additional padding inserts and straps unattached. The instruction booklets were quiet complex but the seat itself was much easier to figure out without the books. Fitting to car was very simple using the seat belt. It sits quite high, which is good as little one can see out of the windows. The only downside to this seat for me is lifting little one over the seat belt to put them into and take them out of the seat. Other than that we are both very happy with our joie tilt.

    I bought this at a discounted price as my daughter needed a bigger car seat as her other one squashed her up. I found it easy to install and use and my daughter seems to Like it too. The tilt motion comes in handy for when she falls asleep on journeys. Would highly recommend.

    Overall a very good car seat, would definitely recommend. The extended rear facing is a big plus for me as the car seat can be used rear facing until 4 years of age. The colour is lovely as well as being dark so does not show any slight marks you may get in day to day use. The only downside is to recline the seat you have to reach under the seat which is very hard when rear facing, also to tighten the straps that is pressed up against the chair making it quite difficult too.
