Unsafe - DON'T BUY
This seat was fine for the first few months we used it. Then the buckles stopped clicking in properly. Baby Bunting won't replace as they said it was up to me to clean the buckles as sand and dirt can stop them working. My 2007 Honda is filled with sand and dirt and those buckles are just fine. Not only that but the buckle doesn't release separately like it does on other brands. We have cleaned the buckle but it still doesn't click in properly first time. This seat is dangerous and I am appalled that Baby Bunting won't refund it. DO NOT BUY.

Didn't really like this car seat at all. Bought it originally because it had high safety ratings for rear facing. However when I put my child in rear facing I noticed her head flopped down when asleep. I believe this is dangerous as it could impact/obstruct her airway and was not happy but thought maybe it was because I installed it incorrectly. Went and had it professionally installed only to have a towel wedged underneath. Didn't do much. After a few months I had to adjust the headrest to accommodate for my growing child only to discover it w...as faulty! One side of the headrest didn't click in properly and kept shifting whenever there was even the slightest pressure applied! This was completely unsafe and when I researched this online I discovered that others had also experienced this exact same issue! I contacted the manufacturer and the seat got sent off to be assessed. They deemed it faulty and offered a replacement but my trust in the seat had been utterly diminished. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a recall for this car seat... Please don't buy!

This was amazing when I first got it. But this was a different story once bub hit 1 year the straps slide and move
Straps are really bad once bub is mobile and moving around. as for comfort the padding is great. Seat design is good aesthetics wise but not practicality. It’s pretty easy to instal so no issues there.

Great seat. My baby fell asleep in it straight away
We got this seat after having used a capsule for her the 7 months. There is an infant insert inside which we have removed & it has made it way more comfortable for her. She would have been too squished if we hadn’t removed it. The straps are easy to use - they undo and extend so easily. I have used the height adjustment with ease too. We had the Maxi cosy basic capsule so this feels like a bit of an upgrade as the straps are easier to undo & tighten. We got it on special at Baby Bunting which was a bargain

Easy to use car seat
I have found it to be a great car seat for my new born. He loves to sleep in it for long trips and is very warm and comfortable. It is easy to do up once you get the hang of it.

Hate this car seat. Straps always get twisted, my babe is always so uncomfortable and sweaty, he even got his had stuck down in between the fabric and plastic. Do not recommend at all you are better off spending money on a higher quality seat.

We studied for a long time before we bought this pram seat. This pram seat is very easy to install and unload. I'm not disappointed that it's not difficult to operate. Disassembly and cleaning is easy. It is of good quality and the material is quite good. I'll keep watching.
Great car seat
I got this for my son who's know nearly 3 months an so far no problems what so ever, it was easy to install, easy to take in an out of the car, comfortable an easy to clean! straps are a bit difficult to adjust as it's under all the padding and need both hands but other than that it's great!
Safe and cosy.
This seat is super easy to install and easy to adjusted as baby grows. It's superfortabale and snuggley when babies is in there. It is a heavier seat so you definitely want this as a main seat. Easy to clean & take apart just can sure you remember how the straps go back in.
Good safe carseat however a little bulky
It is easy to clean and really easy to install; however it takes up a lot of space in my back seat. For a mom of 3 that is not good. My son falls asleep every time he gets in this seat so it must be really comfortable. I also really love the colors.
Great all round car seat
Easy to install ISOFIX car seat, the easiest I've ever installed. Easy to tighten straps. Love the fabric, my little one is a hot little thing and he doesn't get sweaty when sitting in the car for long periods; it is also very easy to clean. Good value for money.
