Superb seat.

ordered thanks op

Fantastic price for an utterly awesome seat. This seat is one of the safest and most comfortable HBB that is on the market.

Got two of these already, time to get one for the grandparents. Thank you very much.

Is a isofix system essential with this seat?

Great price

It is in the description on amazon that you can use with or without isofix

Beast of a seat fits nicely into the DB9

brilliant...ordered 2 to replace the front seats in my focus!

Heat from me, really great car seat, paid £120 last month. This is the more expensive version with Isofix hooks, fits nicely in a Mercedes A-class.

Couple of questions please:

1. Does it recline? Can't see mention on the page so guess not.
2. Anyone know the safety rating on it from Which? or the like.

Blimey, you must have small grandparents

Nice looking / Price but not rear facing so not going to get it. Voted hot.

**** ...... ordered this last week at £120. it's a great item regarding the safety factor (isofix) however doesn't recline so generally the tiny one slumps forward if she falls asleep.

This is an awesome car seat. I have 2.

No cup holder?

thanks, just ordered one as i noticed the little one was looking a bit squeezed into her other one

great price was split between this and the diono Monterey and was after seat belt or isofix and they are both classed about the same rating. went for the diono as it wasn't quite as wide as the recaro.

My son has used this seat for 5 years and it still looks like new... Excellent quality

Well it was the original Monza I should say!

Hi,
When it comes to child safety I would never put them into front facing seat until they were 4+ years of age.
Rear facing seats are proven to be 5 times safer. Personally and this is only my opinion, does not matter how cheap a forward facing seat is I would never buy one. Safety over £££ always.

Excellent seat with great safety reviews, best price I've seen it. I've had this for my 3 1/2 year old for a few months and it's great. It doesn't recline but most of these stage car seats don't. My Son has fell asleep in it and looked comfortable enough.

It's not so much the money really rear facing seats dont need to be anymore expensive than "normal" but getting hold of the larger rear facing ones is tricky. They're the done thing in other countries (was it Sweden I saw where rear facing until 4+ is the norm?)

It's getting hold of rear facing seats that aren't group 0 that's the problem in this country which is why larger rear facing are more expensive I suppose. I don't understand the rush to get the kids onto nothing more than a stupid booster seat. Know people who stuck their kids in those the second they could get away with it, ours are 6 +8 and they're both still in seats like the one above. Youngest still likes to sleep on long journeys sitting on a simple booster he'd fall out of the seatbelt.

Oh our youngest has had the previous incarnation (forgive the pun) of this seat, it still looks brand new, no signs of wear and tear and he loves it

I would agree with rear facing, but when my Son was ready to come out of the his first car seat (2.5 years ago) the only rear facing seat available was the BeSafe (they have come along way since with a lot more options) and it was too big for my car and at £350 we needed two and did not have £700 to spare whilst on maternity leave (and I'm a big believer on spending more money on a car seat than pram). We bought the best forward we could and what fitted on our existing isofix base (Maxi Cosi Pearl). Even if I'd had a rear facing seat my Son hit the height & weight limit for his group 1 car seat nearly a year before I'd of liked, and the rear facing would of been no different as they have the same restriction up to 18kg (regardless of age, it's the weight and height that are vital). Therefore when HAVING to choose a high back booster for group 2/3 this was one of the safest and best options.

No you can use it without isofix, I don't think it feels as secure though. My friend bought the non isofix version and she doesn't like it becasue it moves around a bit.

It doesn't recline, but not many do for group 2/3. It got one of the highest safety ratings for it's group in Which? (I can't remember exactly but it convinved me We have a Kiddy Cruiserfix Pro in my husbands car (also fab safety ratings) and that seems to lean back more (we always use his car for long journeys).

Bought one of these a couple of months ago from Amazon for ~£130. Much better materials and more comfortable than others in Mothercare etc which were much more expensive.

We've got the IsoFix.
Bad points - It does slide a little bit side to side on the mounts but it is still secure. Can be hard to fit since it's quite a big bulky seat. If you car had little slits to access the isofix points rather than a larger opening it's much harder. The width of the seat can also make it hard to clip in the seat belt. Can be very hard to remove again due to access. The little release buttons are very hard to press in. you need to shove the seat in with your knee while trying to release the little slider. worth thinking about if you'll need to move it between cars a lot.

Good points - good reviews for safety, very comfortable. Good materials. Comes apart quite easily to wash (we've had a few incidents already). Built in speakers.

Most rearfacing seats you can buy in this country are up until 4 years old. This seat is from 4 years old.

Does it come with an ejector button for those really insufferable problem child moments ?

I expect they'll sit in it one at a time.

We have one, great seat. Be warned its big, if you have 2 you can't get a passenger in the middle back seat.

Rear facing is fine unless you are rear ended, then they are the opposite of safer. Statistically maybe safer, but I reckon your much less likely to be hot head on than ran into

They are widely available from securatot.co.uk/ or a list of retailers here..
rearfacing.co.uk/
We have Axkid Duofix ages from 6 mths to 6 years (up to 25 kg), will do both Isofix / seat belt and rear and forward facing( so ticks ALL boxes). We heavily researched this and we totally believe this was the right move for safety and then costs (as 6mths to 6 years you would normally buy two to three different chairs for all of the group ages).
That's my 10p worth, that hopefully helps someone / save a life even possibly.
cheers.

Yes, rear facing is safer for children and mine will be rear facing til around age 6.

There are plenty rear facing seats around and there have been since I bought my first erf seat almost 4 years ago now.

This seat is not for children under 4 yrs, so unfair to comment on rear facing. This is a great seat, I have one as a spare/in grandparents car, for my 5 yr old. Got it from Amazon at £99 in Jan so this is a fab price!

Hi,

Just to clarify...
RECARO Monza Nova 2 with Seatfix

The RECARO Monza Nova 2 with Seatfix is a Group 2/3 car seat that your child can use from 15 to 36 kg (aged approximately 3 to 12 years).

I saw some research once that said statistically you're most likely to be hit head on, and when you are obviously the consequences are a lot worse than being hit from behind i.e. two cars going in opposite directions versus one car stationary or even going the same direction at a slower speed being hit....

EDIT: Not the research I saw but mentions as much - which.co.uk/bab…os/

totaly agree, our 5yr old is slowly outgrowing her r/f seat and now its time to face fwd, reluctantly but there is no choice, i have purchased this seat earlier, as i think in some 5 monthsor so it will be time for a change, but with this price its a very good deal not to be missed, it will be stored until time for a change comes. shame besafe dont do r/f for older kids.

A lot are commenting on the 4 years, it is actually from 15kg (though it's recommened a child stays in group 1 car seat until 18kg). I contacted a number of car seat manufacturers when my 3 year old was approaching 18kg as I really wanted him to stay in a 5 point harness longer,he is tall for his age and I really think there should be more seats with a 5 point harness that last until 25kg. I was told categorically that it's more important to take in account the height and weight of the child and not the age of the child as the harness on the car seat can't be gauranteed to hold out and have the same saftely levels on a child over 18kg. I had to put my son in this seat when he was 3.2 years.

Can someone please measure the seat area ie where the child backside would sit Thanks
