  • 2016 Silver Best Car Seat Group 1

Suitable for rear-facing travel up to four years old. Clicks easily into ISOFIX anchor points. The support leg and adjustable front brace make it quick to install safely. 

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

“This one’s really easy to install, and doesn’t take up too much space. I’m 6ft and had loads of legroom in our Golf, even with the car seat fully reclined. Monty seems extremely  comfortable in it. There’s no rotating feature, but that’s a luxury rather than a necessity, especially for younger babies. It’s inconvenient that the straps can’t be adjusted one-handed, though.”

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

“This is massive and heavy, and I hurt my fingers and broke my nails while adjusting the shoulder straps. The ISOFIX buttons are so small and hard to press down, I found myself avoiding taking the seat out of the car! The buckle is big and hard to clip in, taking several attempts to fasten, and the seat doesn’t seem to recline very far, but it must be comfortable as Riley napped well in it.”

>> WHAT IS AN ISOFIX CAR SEAT? 

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

“It’s tricky to install, but once mastered it’s sturdy and secure, and Beth was really comfortable in it. It’s brilliant as a rear-facing seat, using ISOFIX, but when forward-facing you have to secure it with the vehicle’s seat belt. I prefer ISOFIX fittings to secure a car seat, especially for an older child.”

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

I would recommend this product as it is very easy to install, has the option to keep your baby rear facing for longer, which I love, and is very well padded and looks so comfortable for my 1 year old.  I also love the fact that you can alter the angle of the chair at a click of a button.  This chair allows my child to look out of the window and see a lot more.

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

The quick installation of this car seat is a plus point as there are green/red buttons which turn green when the seat is fixed properly.  This is reassuring that it is in the correct position.  The seat also can be adjusted to 3 different positions

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There are two things I would change about this product.  Firstly, the seat is quite heavy and bulky so would try to make it lighter. Secondly, I found the five point harness a little tricky... maybe colour coded or easier to fit?

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

I would recommend this group one car seat to fellow parents who are looking for an isofix, safe and sturdy seat.  It’s extremely sturdy and moved only millimetres when secured into the car.  The ideal car seat for safety and will be perfect until your child is 4 years old.  It is stylish and comfortable.

How does this product make your life easier as a parent?

This car seat is extremely easy to use once fitted and gives great peace of mind to the driver. It is very comfortable for our baby and has made life easier on a long journey we took during our holiday, our baby slept and smiled for hours. The seat is extremely heavy and it was a little tricky carrying it for car to car, however I believe this is due to the extra safe padding.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would only change the price of this car seat, its RRP is a lot higher than others within the category.

Tested by mum Sally for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

We loved the adjustable foot and head rest and think that this very safe car seat will last our daughter till the age of four, as it suggests.  We would love to recommend this seat for those who have enough money as it is worth the price tag, however it is not a cheap option. It is a beautiful seat and ideal for a little boy or girl.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This seat is very easy to clean, easy to adjust and very safe.  The isofix is brilliant and the large almost bucket seat is very cosy for our little girl.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would change the weight of the seat, and the price.

Tested by mum Vicki Lee for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Lovely design and colour. easy to transport so can change sides in the car or move easily to other vehicles. The covers are very easy to take off, so I find this helpful if they need cleaning. It’s a very safe seat. It is isofix which is even more helpful. Gives peace of mind knowing my baby is safe and secure. Great price tag.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Easy use with the isofix. no messing about with seat belts.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Great product so in my opinion this does not need to be changed.

Tested by dad Richard Barnes for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

It’s a wonderful secure comfy well-built car seat, easy to keep clean and install. Great value for money and robust. It does everything you need it to do with none of the fiddly install bits. A truly great car seat.

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

Keeps your child secure and comfortable.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Maybe have some funky design or coloured inserts.

I would recommend this product as it is very easy to install, has the option to keep your baby rear-facing for longer which I love.  It is very well padded and looks so comfortable for my one year old. I also love the fact that you can alter the angle of the chair at a click of a button.  This chair sits a lot higher than the maxi cosi chair which allows my baby to look out of the window and see a lot more.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The quick installation of this car seat is a plus point as there are green/red buttons which turn green when the seat is fixed in properly which reassures you that you have the seat in the correct position.  Also the head rest and shoulder straps easily move up and down to adjust to your baby’s height.  And also the angle of the seat can be adjusted easily into three different positions.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There are two things I would change about this product. Firstly, the seat is quite heavy and bulky so it would be a little more difficult to transport from car to car and it takes quite a lot of room up in your car. Secondly, I find the 5 point harness a little more difficult than the 3 I have now.  However this may increase the safety of the seat so this would not be a major issue.
