It was much lighter that I expected and less bulky than the one I have for my older daughter. I liked that. I think it’s brilliant that it can be used from birth and what makes it better is that it is not bulky at all.  The instructions were clear but in addition to that I watched a YouTube video just to double check that I’ve fixed it correctly. It was fairly easy to assemble though I watched a YouTube tutorial for avoidance of doubt.  This is ideal for newborn. It reclines to a comfortable position and it’s padded beautiful.  My baby is so cosy in it. I used it as a rear facing car seat for my 4 month old and he sits comfortably. I love it. He looks cosy and sleeps well throughout the car ride. He also appears to be safe. I have no worry about it. It was fairly easy to use the five point harness though I had to check on YouTube to confirm.  I’m not a handy person so I second guess myself a lot when fixing things but it was fairly easy. The True Shields Safety Surround Side Impact technology gives me peace of mind knowing that my little one is extra safe. I have not had to use the adjustable headrest height yet as my son is still so young, but sure it is effective. I reclined it fully for my infant and he seems so comfortable and sleeps well. The body support cushions are really good, easy to use and definitely provide extra support.  I have only used it in the rear facing position, because I use it for my infant.  Really great the covers can be removed and I washed them after the baby leaked onto the car and they washed well.  I have only used this for my 17 week old son. I think having a car seat that will care for your baby from birth to 12 years is a brilliant idea. It saves on money and the hustle of trying to dispose of car seats every time a child outgrows it. It is a lovely product.  Very sturdy and the slim fit feature makes it even better. Absolutely fantastic value for money.  I will recommend it to all my friends. The amount is totally worth it to use for 12 years. I loved the fact it is light weight and slim yet sturdy. I would by for another child. The fact that you buy the car seat and don’t have to worry about that for 12 years is fantastic.  Also, the recliner makes it so comfortable for infants, that’s amazing.  There are very few car seats which are comfortable from birth. I would recommend as it is great value for money.  It was fairly easy to fix following the instructions though I had to watch a YouTube tutorial to double check. The light weight and slim fit feature is outstanding, especially since the effectiveness is not compromised. Being able to use it from birth until the child is 12 years old is absolute value for money. The recliner feature makes it so comfortable for my 4 month old.  I love it.

When we took the item out of the box (packed well but easy to remove) she loved the look of the seat as it seemed very padded. She sat in it straight away, there on the kitchen floor and tried to strap herself in! At first look it seemed great quality and very comfortable. I love car seats that will fit throughout the different stages so they last longer. It’s great to find one that fits older children whilst still rear-facing as I prefer to keep my children rear-facing for as long as possible. The instructions were clear and well thought out. For someone who has used car seats for years with all three children they were laid out well, but even without them the seat was so intuitive to install that anyone who has fit a car seat using a seatbelt before will figure it out easily enough. The instructions are great for first time users. The seat itself was already fitted together for the most part, so very easy to use straight out of the box. The newborn add-ons were easy to remove for my older child. Once ready to install in the car this was a quick, easy job, clearly labelled for positioning of the seatbelt. Although I don’t have a newborn I took a good look at the newborn insert. It was very padded and supportive and I can imagine a newborn would be snug and safe within.  The recliner was easy to operate so baby could be kept in a safe position. As a rear facing car seat it is easy to install in the car (easier than previous car seats we have tried).  Using as a rearward facing car seat our little girl seemed happy and comfortable, despite having long legs. I have confidence she would be safe. The five point harness was really very easy to adjust properly so she was safe and secure, without annoying her with constant yanking and pulling as we’ve had with previous seats.  However, the only downside to this seat for me was the clasp – this had a tendency to come open easily while you were trying to buckle in so took a bit of practise to use.  Once buckled in it is safe and secure but it takes a few attempts to get it in in the first place which is a bit of a shame. The head protection was very good – really padded and comfortable and easily adjusted to fit correctly.  Very impressed with this aspect. The newborn add-on also looked very supportive. The harness height adjustment worked very well when altering the headrest – this was a great feature that I was impressed with and could have done with in previous seats. The recline is simple and easy to use, and seems comfortable for my child. The body support cushion inserts are very padded and comfortable.  Also easy to remove when no longer needed, but the seat itself is still padded nicely (unlike some other seats) so older children remain comfortable. It was easy to install both rear and forward facing.  We were able to try out both as our 3 year old is quite tall for her age and reaches the weight limit for forward facing – switching between the two was very little effort and seemed just as secure as rear facing. Our little girl preferred forward facing so she seemed very comfortable in the seat in this position.  She still seems secure within the harness so I was happy with this position. Our 6 year old tried out the seat for comfort but we didn’t travel with it as a booster seat.  However I am confident after his feedback that this will fit my little girl for years to come yet and she will be both comfortable and safe. The covers are less fiddly to remove than other seats we have tried, and wash nicely. They wipe clean easily too. As a busy Mum of three we are on the go daily.  School runs are often driven as a necessity as it is a 30 minute walk each way, so the car seat was utilised regularly. Our youngest who is 3 tried the car seat most on journeys. We also tested the comfort on our 6 year old. I felt 100% confident in the ability of this car seat to keep my children both comfortable and more importantly safe.  I’m a fairly new driver so for me this is paramount. I love car seats that last through different age ranges/stages.  It’s important to make sure seats are fitted and used correctly and switching can often mean different instructions and the chance of fitting incorrectly.  Also my children like to feel ownership over the seats (oddly!) and having one that is just theirs seems to be important to them.  And of course, economically speaking it is great to know that the money you are spending is an investment that is going to last as well as keeping your most precious cargo of all safe. The seat was made well and with quality materials.  It didn’t feel cheaply made or put together at all.  It seemed great value for money and well-priced within the market, especially given the extended life of the product. I loved how comfortable it seemed to be, and how easy it was to use.  It seemed less bulky than our previous seat which is important as we have 3 children under 12. I would definitely consider buying this car seat.  Aside from the clasp issues I’ve already mentioned I couldn’t fault this seat at all. Hopefully I can get used to the clasp! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to friends and family.  It’s a great seat from a trusted brand. If I can get used to the fiddly clasp issues I would absolutely give this car seat a full 5/5.  I love this car seat and it feels very intuitive and simple to use – a must when safety relies on correct installation and use.  Overall, I feel a fiddly clasp can be overlooked as when in place it is safe and secure and my escape artist daughter can’t let herself out mid journey.  She is very happy with her car seat and snuggles herself in when it is time to get in the car.  When asked, she prefers this seat to her older one in my husband’s car.  I couldn’t recommend Graco highly enough.

Looked bulky but I like the colour. My daughter was comfortable in it, her previous one was a maxi cosi, used by my older daughter and it was quite old so she found this very good. Instructions very easy to follow.  This was very easy to assemble. Didn’t use for newborn but I would be happy to use. I did not use this as a rearward facing car seat as daughter is too big.  The five point harness was easy to use and adjust to our needs.  I was very happy with the True Shields Safety Surround Side Impact technology as it gives me confidence my daughter is protected at all times.  The harness height was easy to use and effective. Loved the multi recline worked well.  Very easy to use the body support cushions. Great that this grows with your child and my daughter loved the forward facing position and looks very comfortable.  We will of course use the high back booster seat when she is older. Really good to know the covers can be removed and washed, but we have not needed to wash them yet.  We used this twice a week when going shopping.  I only used this for my daughter Maryam. I do think it is a great design aspect to have one car seat that will care for you child from birth to 12 years.  This is very hardy and well built. Being a car seat that lasts for so many years is good value but personally I am not sure if my kids will keep it for that long.  I would buy this if I saw it on sale.  I would recommend as I’m happy with the quality. I got this for my nearly 2 year old who was getting too cramped up in her maxi cosi stage 1 car seat. She isn’t quite big (10kg) so isn’t ready to go in to a group 3 seat yet so this seat is absolutely perfect as it’s grows with her. This will last her up to 12 years of age. I’m very happy with the quality and style too. She loves it and shows us it’s comfortable I will definitely buy it if it was on a sale for somewhere around £100-120 overall I’m very happy!
