Would you recommend the Axkid Apollo  to other mums?    

I would recommend this seat as it’s just so easy and perfect to use. I first used it and my son loves it the seat was so comfy and so easy to use with a seat belt. The little slit in the car seat lets you put the seat belt through that so it doesn't keep going next to my son’s face. It's so easy to carry around as it’s not that heavy.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Axkid Apollo has made my life so much easier because it's so light and easy to use I have much more time to get other things done. The seat goes in the car so easy and so quick. But this seat is fantastic, it's one of the best seats I’ve used. My son loves it.

It's so easy to use and to carry around with you on journeys. The design is fabulous and the cup holder is just perfect it helped me instead of putting a drink bottle on the floor and trying to reach it. Also the little slit side in the car seat to put the seat belt in I loved that as the seat belt didn't keep rising up to his face.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would not change one thing I loved everything about it. My son loves it, he likes to go in the car seat and just relax. He thinks the cup holder is amazing and he can sleep in the seat.

The Axkid Apollo is amazing, it is so easy and light to lift up and around on a day-to-day basis. It's very very easy to install into the car and is very comfortable my son loves it. It's just so easy to use and that helps us mums out a lot we are in a rush and don't want to be struggling to put the car seat in the car.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It's just so easy to install, it makes my life easier as I can put it into the car and strap my son in so easily, so it gives me more time to do other things instead of trying to lift a heavy car seat and struggle to get used to how it works.

Would you choose this product to win?

It ticks all the boxes. Its design is flawless, the transportability is flawless also. I love that it has a cup holder, that saves me from stopping to give him a drink he can just place it in his cup holder and off we go. 

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't change a thing, all the features are amazing.

The Axkid Apollo is a good, solid high back booster, it feels very safe, it has a lovely finish to the cover which is removable for washing. The fabric doesn't mark easily and is easily spot cleaned too. There are quite a few things I like about this car seat, the first is the retractable ISOFIX connectors - I love the way they can be tucked away in the secret drawer so that the car seat can be used in a non-ISOFIX compatible vehicle. I also like the way the seat reclines in four different positions and obviously the back height is adjustable so it can grow with your child up to the age of 12 years.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I like the plain black cover, if I had two of these, my children wouldn't fight over who goes into which car seat and they look really smart in my car too! The way the seatbelt is held in the loop is great and makes strapping in my daughter very quick and easy, she is nearly able to do it herself which is going to make my life lot easier!

I feel that the retractable ISOFIX connectors are a stand out feature. When taking other ISOFIX car seats out of the car, I have scratched the door or my car and damaged the leather seats with the connectors as they stick out - but I won't have this problem with the Apollo - good job Axkid!

What changes would you make to this product?

I love the way this comes with a clip in drink/cup holder but this does look a little flimsy and I think if my son kicked it in a bad temper, that it could easily be broken/snapped off. Perhaps a built in cup holder that slides in and out of the base of the booster would be a better alternative, I have seen these on other boosters and they work very well.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The Axkid Apollo is extremely simple to install via the ISOFIX. Because of this and it being lightweight it is very easy to move from once car to the other if needed. I have used this seat four my 4 year old and 6 year old, the easy to adjust head rest makes it possible to use for children of different ages and heights. It is comfortable and padded making car journeys less stressful.

Would you choose this product to win?

This is a good car seat to either use as a main car seat or for a second car seat at a grandparent’s house as it is light and easy to move. It is also easily fitted to different cars with the ISOFIX. 

What changes would you make to this product?

I think it is very expensive for what it actually does. There are many high back boosters on the market that are cheaper and just as good in quality.
