Was £59.99. Been posted before but had expired. I know they have stock in Cowley but other stores round me appear to have sold out so I suspect they are on the last holdings. Worth checking if you are looking for a car seat.

what a coincidence, we have just ordered two of these, we are having to drive to castle vale to collect but they are a great price and have good reviews. Heat added.

I've just bought a Maxi Cosi Axis car seat for £170, apart from the fact you can turn it to get the child in and out what is the difference between all the different car seats? Presumably they all have to meet the same standard. The prices range from £30-£400+. I'm happy with the one I have just wondered why such a huge variation in price.

Difference is that you can afford to pay £170 for car seat, but everyone cant. :-)

Anyways, would also like to see what people say about it ...

This looks a good sturdy car seat. Sometimes it really is the name that you are paying for. At the end of the day............they all need to meet safety standards but maybe some are more basic than others. This is a great deal. Heat added.

None local, so looked at Kiddicare website, similar seat (not this make and model) for £24.99, and you get free next day delivery if you spend £30. So I'll let them deliver.

Yeah I guess. When looking at car seats there are so many choices I just didn't know where to start.
I might have a look at one of these and use it in my car as the other is in my wife's and will be a pain to move each time.

We have the Axis and I hate it!! It's so bulky and heavy and I don't find the fact that it swivels that helpful really. I'm tempted to buy one of these and sell the Maxi Cosi on...

prefer isofix car seats, just feels much more safer and you dont have to worry whether the seat is properly fitted.

I was of the same opinion when it comes to their first car seat (the baby carrier) but for the next stage one I don't thinks its required or even better. The Maxi Cosi Axis I have is large and to only be fixed right at the bottom I think is a lot is stress on those connections. With a seatbelt its secured super tight at the bottom and then also at the top as well so my opinion better. Horses for courses though.

Check your local stores online after they've closed; I think that's when they put the reserved items back in stock that weren't collected that day There were none of these available within 30 miles of me earlier but I checked again just now and there was one at my local store.

we ordered 2 and are taking them back tomorrow as they are so hard to sit on hardly any padding.

I think the difference is sometimes down to quality and safety. If you are interested Which? Have reviewed a wide variety of seats. Some are terribly unsafe.

Ideally little ones should stay rear facing as long as possible as it is so much safer. Unfortunately there are only about 5 ERF seats available in UK and all c£300!

I have one of these reserved at carlisle but no longer need it if anyone up here needs a reservation.

It's a personal choice though. If you want this seat then

Thanks

Yes, rear facing is so much safer, but there are plenty erf seats in the UK and both mine cost £199 - Britax Max-way and Maxi-cosi Mobi. The Joie Stages is currently £119.99 too, only rear facing to 18kg but still worth it.

Car seats must pass a series of performance tests, the tests are only carried out at speed of 30 mph so cheap seats could be fine in a crash at that speed but other seats could perform much better in higher impact collisions due to more head/side protection etc childcarseats.org.uk/sta…htm

I think £170 is a lot for the Axiss, I have saw it on Amazon often for £110, and for £170 you could have got an erf seat which would have been more suitable for your young child.

I had the Axiss for both my children and found it brilliant. Everyone that saw it commented and wanted to know details (they were fairly new at the time). The RRP was also £210 so although I'm sure I paid less than that for mine I don't think £170 is a bad price. Something that you use every day and regards your child's safety I think is worth spending the money on.

Thanks. I just checked camelcamelcamel.com and can see Amazon had the Axis for £110 before Christmas, sadly I hadn't planned that far in advance. I'm really happy with it and my son fell asleep in it within 10 mins of first using it so that must be a good sign. I don't know how true this is but I heard they are making it the law to require rear facing until 3 or something in a couple of years.

In many countries it is the norm for kids to stay rear facing til age 4, so it would be great if the UK were to follow. Both mine are still rear facing at age 4 yrs and 2 yrs old.

Totally agree, you cant put a price on your childs safety, but while the Axiss may be very good I think for that price there are better seats.

So what is better than the Axiss, that offers the same rotating feature, and also the recline feature?

Anyone got one of these? need a second seat for occasional use

Our daily seat is the MaxiCosi Axiss and a fantastic seat...it was a tad pricey, is a tad bulky...but the swivel/tilt feat (genius really as does make in/out loads easier, tilts big thumbs up for when nipper falls asleep as keeps head leaning back), actual comfort and solid method its secured down (bet my seats have large indents when this puppy is finally removed ) .....but back to the 123

Bought one of these over the holz as needed 2nd seat - safe to say its kinda no frills, just does what it says on the tin

Not that it matters, but packaging is non box, just bagged and affixing seat in really just takes a min with it being just a centre up and over with seat belt. Was a bit weary of this other seats the Axiss and that has a reassuring clamping fixture, but looks like its kinda the norm so safe (enough). Seat itself is well padded and solid enough, bar the head panel which feels a bit 'flappy' when you adjust it upwards (think there's three notches) - kinda namely due to the cheapy way its made (its a plastic slider opposed to a metal type with the common ball push thingy) but that said its firm on the lowest position and the extra height it offers seems bit extreme anyway (This might be why it says up to 12 yrs old )

For £30 cant really complain, but approval ties back to the fact we wont use it regularly at all (emergency seat in the folks car)
