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

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

I like this product and it seems to provide a good service. I would recommend this product to a friend with children. The seat protector is very easy to fit and having used it in a number of vehicles, seems to fit almost anywhere. It is light and portable and is also made from durable, easy-clean materials meaning that it is quick into action but also easy to clean when required. The pockets provide a handy extra storage area for my child’s things. The sunshade is a useful feature that has proven to keep the seat and straps cool when the car is parked in the sun for a while.

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

This product saves me time when trying to return my car seat back to a clean and functional state. It catches all of the accidents that my child may have and is easily washable making it quick to clean and reuse. The sunshade is a good idea and means the seat remains cool. This product does make my life easier as a mother.

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

I would make the sun screen detachable as it cannot be used in conjunction with my  other rear facing seat.

Tested by mum Ruth Hobson for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

Easy to use and provides coverage if you have posh seats.

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

For me it makes no difference as my car is old but if you have a new car this would be great to protect your upholstery.

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

Nothing.

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

A great way to make your car seat stay cool, fit more securely and stop any indents to your seat leather.

It feels like the car seat fits better and more surely now we have this fitted

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

Can’t think of any improvements.

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

We would recommend this car seat cover to fellow parents, it is light, absorbent and easy to wash.  It is stylish and plain in design meaning that it will go with most car furnishings.  It fits our seat and our current car seat.  The materials felt of a strong design.  We really loved the idea of the sunshade for the seat, although we have tinted windows so don't normally suffer with hot car seats.

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

This travel product made our lives easier as parents, because we did not have to worry about letting our son eat on long journeys.  We could easily remove the cover and shake it out after and there was no need to worry about stains to the car.

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

We would definitely change the cost of this travel product, although it is good and works well, it is more than we would wish to pay.

Tested by mum Emily Bennett for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

I liked the idea of this travel car seat protector.  It is designed to protect your car upholstery from scratches and marks from the car seat.  The materials used were of a high quality.  The colour was nice and it was very easy to fit.  The pockets and sun-protector were lovely additions.

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

The seat protector cover itself does not make my life easier, as the car seat we currently have, does not mark or scratch our soft material seats.  The toddler in the car however does.  The pockets were nice to store toys and juice, which made life easier and the sunshade is brilliant as we tested during the summer and it was very hot.

Tested by mum Clare Mechan for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

A really lovely car seat protector.  It stops my car interior from being damaged by the bulky ISOFIX car seat my son uses.  It is made from great waterproof material and is slip proof to ensure safety.  I really liked the sunshade and this covered the entire Maxi Cosi seat we use.  It was also very easy to wipe clean, which is very important in our family.

How does this product make your life easier as mum?

It makes life easier knowing that the cover will not slip and keep the car seat secure, giving me peace of mind.  The sunshade also really helps to make sure the metal buckles don’t get too hot.

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

I would change a few things about this product.  First, the RRP is a little high. Second, fitting it to the seat was trickier than I thought, it looked so easy on instructions. Third, I think it should cover a little higher and wrap around the top of the seat as our car seat is expandable and this would save the car further. Lastly, the gap in the fold of the protector (where it folds in two) should have a bit of material, it will stop crumbs and bits falling down behind the seat.

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

I would recommend this really practical and safe travel product to fellow mums.  It took only a few minutes to fix under my group one car seat.  It is padded and washable, with anti-sliding technology to make sure my child was safe.  It had a cool little pocket space at the bottom, although my child could not reach this (so, good and bad really).  The sunshade looked like a space suit for a car seat, which my son thought was amazing, and it covered the seat well.

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

This anti-slide seat protector is designed to protect your car interior.  It was easy to fix. I think it makes life easier by protecting your car seat from the sun.  I'm not sure if it protected our seat as we have not had any problems with the child seat scratching the car seat.

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

The pockets at the bottom could be in a different place as my child could not reach them, which was frustrating.  Maybe at the side?
