"We bought this carseat as we were looking for a backward facing car seat up to 4 years old as we have read that in Sweden they face backward and the risk of injury or death for children under 4 is much lower than in the UK.
We have been using it for a couple of weeks. It seems all fine for us."

"This review isn't a reflection on Halfords or the staff at the store. We bought this seat for our one year old and wish we hadn't bothered. We wanted a seat that was rear facing until 4,which this is. However, it's not clear until you fit the seat that the shoulder strap gets in the way of you strapping the child into the seat meaning you have to sit in the driver's side to strap them in. Also, it says the product last until the child is approx 7 years old but in the instruction manual says no car seat should not be used for more than 5 years! Halfords didn't fit this seat for us and I don't feel we were ill advised by the staff I just feel the product is a massive let down."

"Took I more than a minute to install. Very clear instructions - easy to follow.
Daughter seems very snug and cosy in the chair and is well protected. Good recline on the chair for newborns.

"Child's car seatDan, the store fitter, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
He advised my Son on the pros and cons of fitting seats in the front and rear of vehicles. We took the seat away with his assurance that if it was not suitable, Halfords would refund the money and they would search for a more suitable item. On this basis, we decided to keep the seat and take his advice about fitting.

Pros: great value for money
Cons: needs a long seat belt to use rear facing
"Great buy, will last a long time, the quality exceeds any expectations. Extremely easy to fit. Only con I'd say is that it needs a lot of the belt length when rear facing, if you can't fit an infant car seat in the car then this won't fit either, but it's still more universal than others. The infant insert is fantastic as well. You won't be disappointed."
