Good CREP ratings but seems a bit flimsy
I bought this seat based on its good CREP rating rearward and forward facing.
Bub is yet to use it, but assembling it, my view was that the stabilising bar was not easy to slide into position and the plastic seemed like it was a bit flimsy. Also, the reclining bar came off quite easily and was hard to put back on. The instructions weren’t the best in showing you what position the reclining bar needed to be in for rearward facing either.
I’ve Used a number of seats so pretty familiar with how they all work so it should have been easier. Hoping it is well deserving of the rating despite the poor quality feel and fit of the plastics.
Purchased in March 2019 for A$198.00.
So far so good
Have had this seat for a month, got it for my firstborn. It's relatively easy to install although a bit fiddly with the bolts. It fits great in our Mazda 2 and my daughter loves it. She is snug but not uncomfortable and sleeps really well. It's also big enough to fit an extra neck pillow for extra support, which is good for a newborn.
Love the headrest!
I'm happy my child has head support with this car seat. In her other car seat (despite facing reward), her head used to turn to the other side when I'd turn at traffic lights.
I wish it had the pockets and messy mat like the series 1 though! Another improvement could be to have the anchor starting from both sides of the car seat, rather than the middle because when I anchored it in forward facing, the strap adjuster bent the car seat plastic.
Happy with this car seat
Bought this 1 year ago and we have been very happy with it. It got a good rating on the CREPS safety website yet was one of the best value seats to buy so we decided to buy 2 of these seats, 1 for each of our cars, rather than only being able to afford a more expensive car seat for one car. My baby boy seems comfortable in it and we had him rear facing for added safety up till 12 months, after this time he wanted to be facing forward anyway to look at everything so this has worked well for us.
Great baby car seat!
My baby stopped crying after transferring her into this car seat and facing forward. It seems to be very comfortable, she can look around and is happy in it. We got it professionally installed but it seemed quite easy. It’s very easy to use. So much easier than a capsule. It’s not too heavy, I could easily lift the box with it so storage is not a problem. Also quite easy to clean. It has a cushion that you can take out for washing so with a small baby that’s very convenient as you don’t have to take everything off for washing.
