Easy to use carseat

published

Overall I am happy with the purchase of this car seat. Bub always seems happy in the car seat so I would think he is comfortable. We bought this as it can be used from birth until 4 which is great. At first the straps were hard to use but that would be because its new. We did get it professionally installed to ensure the safety of our baby. Have recomended to family and friends. I haven't had to wash it yet so unable to comment on how easy that is!!

Purchased in July 2019 at Target Australia for A$149.00.

Perfect Choice !!!!

published

Bought it for my son. Its a bit difficult to install, however once installed its the mist safest car seat for infants. Size is also a bit big.... but with it comes the safety of your loved one, so thats not an issue.
I certainly recommend it.

Excellent

published

This car seat is suitable from birth to 4 years. Not only is it solid but also comfortable for your child. Perfect for long car trips. It has a great safety rating and for the price it is definitely worth it. The seat itself is easy to install and if you do need a hand it comes with a step by step instruction booklet.

Good for the price.

published

I bought this for my daughter when she grew out of capsule. It was fine at first, but when she got older (still under 2) it got really snug and she was always sweaty. She absolutely hated it and soon end up buying more expensive seat and she's been sweet ever since. We use this in MILs care and it's fine every now and then. So maybe don't pick this to be your main seat, but great for 2nd car or grandparents.

for $149 it's good.

Looks and works great.

published

This is a great car seat. It was easy to buckle into the car. Easy to drop into the base and retrieve. Simple locking mechanism. Fits our newborn grandson perfectly. It is also convenient that they sell separate bases so the seat can be used in multiple vehicles.Great car seat for the price!

Baby loves it

published

I was tossing up between a more expensive car seat and this one from target which is a budget friendly option. I am so happy I chose this. Baby loves it as a newborn and fits snuggly inside.
The seat belts click in and do not ‘pop’ our forcefully when released which is good.
Baby will grow with this car seat and will be in it for a long time. Great purchase, 5 stars!

Buy it if you want your wife swear at you

published

I bought it with on sale price $149 and thought it would be a good car seat for our new coming baby. Drama occurs when I was installing this car seat. The installation menu utterly doesn’t make scene, very difficult to get the strap working. My wife nearly had a traumatic injury when trying to install it. We watched multiple (non-mother choice product) YouTube videos, work it out after 3hrs. It isnt like an ikea furniture puzzle but the installation menu is simply misguiding, esp the rear-facing position. Very disappointed!

good and bad

published

its not a bad car chair but the main strap that runs to the back is a real pain in the way because each time you want to get bubs out of the car you have to move it out of the way or she or he will try and grab it or gets in the way.
i also heard by a friend of mine once i had mine installed that their kid hit the size limit very early however ive been told this differs child to child due to growth. over all a great seat but the only draw back is that dam strap!

Great

Have always used this brand of car seat for our babies. I think this is the 3rd one we brought. live the new adjustable head support bit found as they got older to say 3-4 age is was restrictive and gave them not much head space so made head area more narrower then rest of chair

Nice product for the kid

published

Purchased this when my family was visiting from overseas as I have a 2 year old niece. Did the fitting myself and it was easy. Since we were travelling had to fit it couple of times on rented cars but that was smooth as well. No hassle and easy to fit and comfortable for the kid.

Great seat for my toddler

published

Easy to install and my daughter is very comfortable. She is still rear facing at 20 months with no issues. Used in second car which is a small hatchback. Great value for money when on sale. Easy to keep clean. I would recommend if you need a second seat. We are very happy with it

Good, functional car seat.

published

I actually got this baby seat from my brother and I think it is great! Once we got it properly installed, it worked great! (we didn't put it in right the first time - newbie parents). Our little bub is super comfortable in this car seat. It is easy to get the baby in and out, a good angle for him, it is nicely padded for his head and little body etc..

Great

We bought this instead of a baby capsule then spending more money to buy a kids car seat.
Wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Great value for money
Easy to install
Only thing that made me wish we bought a capsule sometimes is the baby inset is still way to big. Didn’t support the babies head.
Also the straps could go tighter too
Bringing out baby home from the hospital we had the straps as tight as possible and they were still too big. She was a smallish baby but not premie or anything. Took roughy 4 weeks for her to fit better.

Great budget car seat, great idea for a second car

published

We were fortunate to have purchased this during a Target half-price sale, so around the $150 mark.

Easy to clean and plain clean colours. Baby sits comfortably in it and has even napped in it a few times.

Installation and transfer into another car is super easy. I would recommend this for a grandparent's car or a spare/second car.

Nice product

published

The product is not easy to install but quiet easy to use it for day to day life. It was hard to put initially, but once you know, it's very easy.
It's very comfortable to use and baby like it. Baby can sleep well in this seat.
While comparing to other products, it has good value of money.

HAN07

HAN07asked

Have this car seat in my partners car. It seems loose and is able to move sideways really easily and doesn’t feel like it’s firm to the seat. Is this normal? Unsure as I have Britax in my car (isofix) and doesn’t move at all.

Ours is move too
I thought it’s our fault

If your car seat can move sideways using the lapsash, it's 100% fitted incorrectly. There should be very mimimal to no side way movement. I know this because I installed it incorrectly and I gave up, so I had this installed twice at the store. Now it's doesn't move, but I'm looking at buying a britax with isofix.

Hi we have an Isofix in our car. Can we install this seat? Also planning to use til 4 years, but have read a few reviews that say it is snug especially around the head area. Any thoughts? Thank you

Hi Cat, Yes you can install it using the seat belt method of installation in your car. The seat has been tested and certified to the latest AS/NZS 1754:2013 standard for fitment with a dummy which is
a representation of an average 6 year old. For any further fitment questions please contact our customer service team on 1300 809 526. Warm Regards, Mother's Choice.
