Yes I wasn't sure if it was the same or not. It's so confusing finding a car seat but I definitely want an Isofix one.

Yes, me too, i purchased the same seat for £125 from Amazon last week and just contacted Customer services to cancel that order. I have now re-ordered it for £100.
Expect price to be increased. I checked this seat at Toys r us and it is very good, much light weight, very well cushioned, can recline. I don't like the seats that have cup holders as children can stuck their legs between holder and seat.

I've read the recline is a bit pants but I'm not fussed. I also like that it can be used without isofix. I'll always use it with but my dads car doesn't have it so even better as no longer need to buy two different seats. I've read great things about this one. Glad I didn't go for an evolva now

it doesn't recline like group 0 or group 1 car seats. I have put it in to my Honda accord and recline doesn't make it uncomfortable. In fact it is more like a first class seat for kids

Did you get it checked via a dealer or just via maxi cosi website for compatibility. I went on maxi cosi site months ago and it said was ok but just went on again now and it's saying it's universal fit but they can't confirm if its definitely ok for my car or not. Ugggg

These are excellent car seats, easy to install also. Had two (one for each car) for my daughter and swapping and moving is so easy, light and easy to set-up/install. Reclining is not worth it, don;t bother and to be honest I would not anyway. At that age, they will fall asleep in the chair or simply don't! Rarely at this price nowadays. Recommend, been using a red and back one for a couple of years without any fault/issue. .

will we be charged on order or dispatch?

Can anyone recommend a similar group 1 seat (isofix without needing to use a base) for my 10 month old. Quickly growing out of her first seat.

Despatch as it's Amazon

Dammit to hell. I've been waiting for an offer like this for ages.

I have 2 of these Rodifix back in the days when Kiddicare did their price match +10%, and I needed 2 more.

But I ended up buying the Britax Kidfix XP from Halfords with their 20% highback booster discount, which arrived on Friday.

I had Maxi Cosi PrioriFix, which is isofix with an integrated leg at the front, which my youngest has just grown out of. Was very good.

Thanks OP, nice find!

these are good seats, this model has much much nicer cushioning than most others
go into a shop and try it out, usually it feels like its either a chunk of polystyrene or a crisp bag or something underneath but this feels like a soft cushion
the isofix on these is only really to keep the seat still when seat is empty which is good but it doesn't seem to be a safety feature for the child unlike the leg ones
the cut away at the seatbelt is very nice and makes it simple for the kids to plug in their own belts
paid quite a bit more for it and was happy to do so (for once!)

I checked it at Toy's r us and they can install the seat in the car to make u understand the practicality of it.
I felt the recline is fine, it doesn't recline too much and it will be very comfy for kids.

You're never going to find a high backed booster with anything more than a very slight recline, it wouldn't be safe. If a child is reclined in a high backed booster and you are involved in a collision there is the risk that the child will slide down under the lap belt and be at risk of horrible internal injuries to their abdomen.

Your daughter needs to stay rear facing, I would recommend the Britax MaxFix II if your daughter is looking taller than average. Don't be seduced by the rotating Britax Dualfix, a child who is tall for their age will outgrow it before they are a safe age for a forward facing high backed booster (they need to be at least 4 years old for a seat like the one in this deal)

I have seen britax kidfix XP too and i think Maxi cosi rodifix is better. I didn't go with Britax because i find the elbows of my child can touch the plastic (lower half of the seat). Also i think cushioning is better in Maxi cosi.

Having ISOFIX on a high backed booster doesn't offer any additional safety for the child. All it means it that it saves you from having to remember to fasten the seatbelt over the empty booster seat if you are driving in the car without your child.

I don't agree completely on this , it still offer extra safety, particularly for the kids who doesn't like to sit at one place on long trips !! Also, most people doesn't fix the conventional seat properly. In Isofix, it is more stable and you can't go wrong as isofix points remain at one place !

I thought I agreed with this until I read the Which? reviews, where they tested the car seats with and without using the Isofix fixings. The Rodifix gave a much better score (73%) using Isofix than without (57%), whereas the Kidfix XP scored 71% and 67% respectively. That suggests that the Isofix is an integral part of the car seat safety, and markedly so on the Rodifix.

If they are ready for group 2/3, then I can recommend the Britax Kidfix XP, which you can currently get in red from Halfords for about the same price as this offer, using their 20% off high back booster trade-in discount code.

If you get it delivered, then there is no need to physically trade anything in.

I have the Rodifix and the Kidfix XP. They both recline about the same amount, both have isofix, have similar side impact protection, similar colour, similar comfort. As posted above, the Kidfix gets a better Which? score when used without the car isofix points.

The only real differences I have found is that the Rodifix sides expand as the headrest is moved up, whereas the Kidfix stays the same width; and the release buttons for the isofix connectors on the Kidfix are very close to the back of the chair which makes it more difficult to fit as it's in about the same place as some seat belt buckles, whereas on the Rodifix the isofix release buttons are further forward. If that makes sense...

The Kidfix XP gets a built-in seat belt guide which is supposed to also improve front crash safety. It also makes it easier to get the seat belt on as it's already part way across the chest when the child sits in the seat.

I also found that the Kidfix XP extends slightly taller than the Rodifix, which would keep my eldest child (who is very tall for her age) in a high-back booster for a bit longer.

Yes I understand that thank you. Just to see if there was a similar deal or seat to this one somewhere

​high back boosters shouldn't be used until a child is at least 4 when they're old enough to sit sensibly and safely without being restrained by a 5 point harness, and their bone structure (pelvis etc) is mature enough.
ideally keep him in his group1 (harnessed) seat until he's reached it's 18kg limit. If if he's already heavier than that you need to move him to a 25kg harnessed seat.

It depends on the weight. I also consider the height though it is not recommended by anyone. My son is 3.5 years old and he is just over 15kg. Maxicosi Rodifix is the right fit for him due to his height & weight. His current sear is Group 1 and it has harness. Harness in his current seat only supports upto 15kg and I feel my son is very uncomfortable as its harness is very very tight.

​what seat is your child in at the moment? group 1 seats harness to 18kg

Original Poster

it is Marvel Spiderman Black Cosmo SP Lux Car Seat (I think it is not available now). Cosmo SP Lux comes in different theme nowadays and yes it is upto 18kg harness. But I feel harness has limited length and it is very tight to my son (maybe because of his height). I will be moving to Maxi Cosi Rodifix, it starts from 15kg above, and no harness needed now.

I'm new to seatbelt seats. Do you still have to remove puffy jackets when putting them in just as you do with a harnesses seat or does it not matter with a seatbelt one? Thanks
