Easy to install and great to use
Brought this as a second seat for my partners car. Great seat and comfy for your daughter.
We do find that as she has got older, no matter how good our install is, she pushes her feet against the rebound bar and reclines the seat back more than necessary.
Purchased in February 2017 at Supercheap Auto for $99.00.
Excellent second carseat for grandmas car.
We bought this car seat to use when my daughter in law and granddaughter come to brisbane to stay with me and attend the childrens hospital.
Its really good, very sturdy, secure and safe. LOVE IT
Purchased in October 2019 at Kmart for $119.00.
Great price. Seems good.
Price is great. I don’t know if it’s normal but the angle of the seat seems to change over time. I’ve had it professionally installed twice but still not convinced it’s good.
Purchased for $99.00.
Fantastic car seat
This seat is the cheapest extended rear facing seat on the market and its brilliant. My 2 year old is still safely rear facing and only just getting close to the bottom height marker so she should last rear facing until 4. Easy to install and seems to be very comfortable as she often falls asleep in it.
Great seat and great value
Very easy to install and simple enough to adjust. Baby sleeps in it often so it must be comfortable. It still looks new after a whole year, and my baby can easily sit in it rear facing at least until 2 years old. Its slim and the price is great- I would recommend this car seat to everyone.
it does the job
I find that this seat is just ok. it moves position a bit in our car, despite going back to the installers to have it readjusted. but they have assured us it's safe though annoying. for the price (100), we liked it enough to buy it and my baby is comfortable enough in the seat. the belt on the side is a bit frustrating to undo but I've not had enough experience to know whether this is the norm or a feature of this model.
Perfect for our 11 month old baby
This product is very easy to install, it’s light and very easy to clean. My 11 month old baby girl just loves it and is always happy smiling when travelling in it. We purchased this seat for my husband for his work Ute, it was very affordable. This is the second seat we have purchased in this brand as our 3 year old has the same in his work Ute also. Perfect product
easy to use
We bought this in Feb, 2016 for our first baby. It has always been very easy to use, great product for a great price.
real value for money.
it can be used right through to 4 years of age.
Very easy to clean especially after all the baby food which has fallen on it
- Verified purchase
Love this seat
After previously owning the hipod boston we decided on the kansas for our newest addition. Was fairly easy to install. Very easy to use and get my son in and out. Baby falls asleep in it so I am assuming its comfortable. Easy to wipe clean. We ended up purchasing one for each car.
Great seat for a low price!
He got this seat for our Bub as a second seat for hubby's car. We purchased an expensive one for my car but decided to go a little more cost effective with this one. It was a great buy on special for just $99 and I couldn't praise it enough!
Bub loves this seat and looks so comfortable (maybe likes it more than the expensive one) and it was so easy to install!
We would highly recommend this seat to anyone looking for a cheaper option. The quality is exactly the same as the more expensive seats and of course it's assessed under the same standards!
Great Value For Money
I did a lot of homework before choosing this carseat. I was tossing up between this one which was $199, or the Safe n Sound Millenia which I also liked, but was $490 on sale ($679 retail!) In the end I just couldn't justify spending that much on a carseat so we went with the Hipod, and I am so very happy with it. My daughter absolutely hated the capsule but she is very happy and comfortable in this one. It is easy to adjust everything, and easy to install in the car. The right amount of support and padding, not so much that it's all too squishy, but just enough to be comfortable for a long journey. It's nice looking, not too big, and I am very happy with our purchase.
Questions & Answers
I have a hipod JS7/A/2004
Is it still safe to use or now out of date? Still in great condition
Hi Cat, thanks for your question, The JS7/A/2004 is the series number and the Australian Standard number that ths seat has been approved to, which is the 2004 Std. Our recommendation on the lifespan is anything 10 years or older should not be used. We recommend replacement at 10 years, due to deterioration of the plastics used in the construction of modern restraints. A seat may have become brittle over time, and simply will not provide the same level of protection against impact. Older child restraints may not contain all the safety features of the latest Australian Standard. Kind regards, the Hipod team.
My mum purchased this from target a few months back for my sister. She is due to give birth in 2 weeks, has just opened the carseat and gone to install it but theres no tether strap. Is it wrapped somewhere inside the seat or did she get a faulty one?
I have no idea sorry Nicole! But I have to say, after having this seat for about 6 months, I absolutely hate it. If possible, I suggest a return and exchange! I bought a new one, and paid $400 for the new one because it was worth it compared to the stress of dealing with the Hipod, which constantly slips around, has difficult straps, and has annoying settings for the headrest!
