Cybex Pallas M Fix Group 1/2/3 - £140 @ Mothercare

24
Found 29th Dec 2017
Looking for a new car seat for the ankle biter and came across this as it was the one I was recommended by a friend.

Most other sites have this for sale around the RRP of £260 so seems a no brainer to me

Lasts from approx 9 months to 12 years

Very good price

hiwever I really recommend viewing this and trying inspire before buying. Our son hated the design (essentially a huge restraint that holds the baby in by the stomach) and there is t anything to hold the shoulders.

clearly it must have passed rigooruous testing rigorous testing, but do bear in mind it isn't conventional in design / way it harnesses

Agreed, ours wouldn't sit in it!
Its great when u Have a sneaky smart kid who learns to undo the harness as they physically cannot reach the belt!! My lad loved it forward facing its safer as it doesn't support the shoulders so should you crash the whole body falls over the lap hold as apposed to just there massive heads on there little necks with 'normal carseats' im on the hunt for new car seat but am looking for rear extended now

Ditto!! Heat added
found it great when the 3 year old got too tall for the harnessed toddler seat but definitely wasn't mature enough to be trusted to sit properly in a standard high back booster. The impact shield can be used to 18kg so it was great to transition to a standard booster seat, which we didn't have to do until close to age 5.
We sold the impact shield as being lucky to have a table

Forward Facing car seats are not safer but yeah this is safer than conventional forward facing car seats.

For best safety we should keep children rear facing for aslong as possible. 15months Minimum is the new law in 2018 I believe.
Only colour in stock is £190?

If that was the case, surely this product would be both advertised incorrectly and not fit for purpose?
Please expire
No stock left at this price

Rang Peterborough, Milton Keynes, Watford, Stevenage, Bedford - none hold stock of it and said it was a discontinued colour

Cracking spot 🏻

​2018 is the year they are due to stop manufacturing the car seats that are not compliant with the new Isize requirements.
Both the old and new regulations are likely to run along side each other for a few years yet. Not all cars have isofix.
It will be fine if you own it before the change

No, they are only required to be fit to restrain the child at a 30 mph frontal crash and no side impact crash test is needed as per the requirements of the car seat tests to be considered fit for purpose. I think the new Isize might be 50 mph and does include side impact requirements.

There are many seats like this one and the more expensive maxi cosi and Britax that well exceed the minimum safety requirements but rear facing significantly decreases the force the babies / toddlers neck and spine if an impact occurs and so is considered safer to remain rear facing when moving to a toddler group 1 seat.

Apologies. I was referring to your comment that they could not be used in 2018. Very good points made above though.

​No worries. I didn't make the comment they couldn't be used in 2018 anyway, just that manufacturing is due to wind down then on the old style seats

I made the comment but I didn't say they can't be used (probably my fault for bad wording) Just was mentioning that 2018 is when the new law comes into place. If you already have a forward facing seat then it's fine.

How they are going to police it exactly I don't know. Probably more of a tactic to get people talking about it and getting wider attention. Obviously a lot of people including myself was oblivious until I heard about the coming law change.

But @jdRiggs explained it better. I'm a novice in the research. Been researching for 2 weeks as I had to order a new car seat for 1 year old a few days ago lol.

That's what the end of my comment says just purchased a cozy merlin for my baby extended rear facing.

They will no longer be able to produce them for that age range will take yrs to phase out find it crazy what people wont spend on safe carseat
Would anyone be interested in buying mine off me for £140.

Tried the child in it in the living room and he hates it.

Still brand new in box etc.

Yep i know i own one which i bought 3.5-4yrs ago for my son!

Yes this is not a cheap car seat and has great safety reviews as a front facing carseat in group 1 its one of the safest but new research shows that it is safer to have this age/weight/size child rear facing as long as possible.

I think views on this carseat will differ depending on the age of child you are buying for my son has this is 5yr 26kg and 130cm (big tall kid!) He has this carseat and will stay in it till he's too big.

My baby 9m 10kg 80cm would be suitable for this car seat but today's research shows in a crash she will best fair being rear facing so i wouldn't buy this seat for her I've gone for a extended rear facing seat.
