Tested by mum Alexandra Goodall for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

Yes I would recommend the Nuna Rebl Car Seat to my friends and other mums as it's easy to fit in the car due to its simple design (no need to attach parts before fitting). It also has great design features like the ability to turn the seat and recline the seat to enhance the comfort of my baby. It was sturdy and secure looking but not cumbersome.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product did make my life easier when it came to getting my baby in and out the car, due to its swivel seat I was able to turn my baby towards me to get him in and out the seat without overstretching and straining getting him in and out the seat at an angle. Also because of its simple design and easy to follow instructions I was able to fit the car seat in my car without help.

Would you choose this product to win?

It easy to transport and is comfortable for baby and for me in terms of getting him in and out the car. Being able to turn the seat was the one feature that most appealed to me in terms of making this seat more appealing than other car seats on the market.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I had to highlight one thing that could improve this product it would be to make it easier to adjust the strap length of the seat when fitting baby in.

I would definitely recommend the Nuna Rebl Car Seatto anyone, it's easy to fit into the car didn't even have to use the instructions. The newborn insert is really easy to fit in again didn't have to use the instructions, loved the fact it came with an additional seat cover so you don't have to worry about when to wash the original if it gets dirty. My child found it really comfortable and looked well supported when he fell asleep, was also easy to adjust the head setting and easy to recline if he fell asleep.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product makes things a lot easier just by being able to swivel the seat 360 degrees, it helps when putting the child in if you've had to park in a tight spot with not much room to open the doors. Also having a spare seat cover is a bit advantage when on the go as it comes off really easy and not having to hurry to get it dry before putting it back on. I think the biggest advantage for this seat is the swivel, found it so much easier getting my child in and out without any fuss of twisting my back.

The swivel action is amazing and I wonder why it has never been thought of before. Although it's at the higher end of the price range I think it's worth spending the money on a seat that is going to last and not have to be replaced.

The 360 degree swivel function allows you to easily strap in and remove your child from the seat without having to reach over or stretch. The moving parts of the seat are easy to find and operate. I have used the car seat for both my 6 month old baby and 2 year old and have found the Nuna Rebl is easily changeable to accommodate different children, the head rest moves with the click of a button and the harness straps are tightened with a single pull. The footrest when forward facing is a good feature for older children. The car seat looks simple and stylish.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The spare seat cover is an added bonus, with two children accidents are bound to happen and having a spare seat cover is a real helping hand. The 360 degree swivel function is the best feature of this car seat. With the inset for babies, this is the only car seat you will need from birth to 4 years. The isofix fixings make it easy to fit in the car and ensure a safe secure fit.

What changes would you make to this product?

There isn't much difference between the reclining levels on the Nuna Rebl. I found that most reclined position on the car seat was still fairly upright so when my 2 year old fell asleep her head was dropping forward. The car seat is quite heavy and bulky which makes it moving between cars a bit of a struggle.

Tested by mum Angela Thomas for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would highly recommend the Nuna Rebl Car Seat to other mums as it is very practical and helped me lots. Once the base is affixed to the isofix fixtures in the car and the seat is attached on there is no need to take it out again. The best feature for me was the swivel function. the car seat is very well made and sturdy. It is very comfortable and safe; it is bulky and heavy but once in the car this doesn't matter and it didn't put me off - better than being flimsy! 

How did this product make your life easier?     

I have a 3 door car and therefore getting in and out of the back with a baby can be difficult, especially if the weather is bad. The swivel function was fantastic and saved me squeezing in the back of my little car with baby. I can't imagine not having one now.

There are some really good car seats out there nowadays but In my opinion this is by far the best that I have used. It makes life so much easier and it is not such a chore getting baby in and out of car. The newborn insert is very cosy for the baby and the head/neck is supported well at all times. The car seat is solid once attached on to the base and feels very safe. 

What changes would you make to this product?

If I had to change something I would possibly make the base and seat slightly lighter and maybe not quite as bulky. This did not put me off the carseat though as once it is fitted in the car it doesn't matter how heavy it is. The back of my car is quite small but still plenty of room for my two ther children next to this car seat. 

Tested by mum Charlotte Schoolar for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this car seat to other mums. Although it is rather heavy and bulky once in the car it was very easy to use. The Nuna Rebl is very easy to fit in the car with indicators to show when in the correct position. It is also very easy to sit child in correctly and securely. As the Nuna turns 360 degrees it is very easy to get child or baby out without a struggle.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Having never used isofix at all before having a car seat in the car ready to go at all times makes life so much easier. Also having previously only used a belted car seat the Nuna although bulky felt very safe and secure once installed, which is great for peace of mind. As I said before the 360 turn helps to get child out with the greatest of ease.

The car seat itself is of very high quality and very well made. My only concerns were the stiffness of the straps which would lessen over repeated use. That being said I felt my daughter was very safe and secure in this car seat and I found it very easy to use. 

What changes would you make to this product?

The only downside to the Nuna for me was the fact the baby insert and the straps were very stiff and unforgiving. I would imagine that these would give over time and repeated use but at times it felt a bit restrictive for the child whilst getting in the seat and getting out, although once in they felt very secure. Another point would be that recline function although very easy to use just didn't quite tilt back enough for my little one but only by a very small margin.

Tested by Aisling Alsopp, 28, mum to Monty, four months. She says:

“It’s small and compact, leaving plenty of legroom for everyone else. It’s slim, so an adult could fit in the middle of the back seat between two car seats. The insert for babies is bulky though, Monty was squished with it in place, but unsupported without it.”

>> WHAT IS AN ISOFIX CAR SEAT?

Tested by Laura Allen, 36, mum to Riley, 15 months. She says:

“Easy to install, but I wasn’t sure it was correctly positioned as the light indicator only went green when the seat wasn’t in the car! The rotating feature works well, and the spare chair cover is a great idea. However, Riley’s head kept rolling forwards.”

Tested by Dawn Geddes, 35, mum to Beth, three years. She says:

“Attractive and easy to install and Beth seemed safe, comfy and secure in it. The rotating feature is a real advantage when getting your child in and out of the car, and is ideal for toddlers.”
