As an FYI - "as of 9th February 2017 all new to market backless booster seats are only approved for older children - specifically children weighing more than 22kg and taller than 125cm. Children smaller than this, it is recommended for them to travel in a highback booster car seat." (from the Mothercare website)

Its £23 delivered. Cheap tat in B&Q was £15-20.
Nice and solid in term of price too :D
Ive soft close. Dont get the need. Got this as a replacement as other started moving. amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00ZWKYLLW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
£56 + vat for the hinges alone on mine and they're not even genuine (lol)
More to the point, it says stainless steel. My current hinges are chrome on (regular) steel which, as a result, have started rusting.
I have been on trains and tube with a surgical boot on my foot,no offers ne their seat.
We have signs on our buses for elderly disabled and people with buggy’s we can sit on the seats until any of above comes on and If people didn’t move the drivers ask people to mov
I have one of these for my autistic son. Great in principle, but no body takes any notice. I have a lanyard with a badge on it that says 'i have autism, please be patient with me'. Used in conjunction works well.
Great idea. My daughter has an invisible disability and although wouldn't as such expect someone to give their seat up for her but if she did get a seat it would mean people would understand why she kept her head down and wasn't being rude by not giving her seat up for someone else
Whilst its easy to judge and see things from the perspective of those looking for a seat, dont forget some people may not stand and offer a seat because they already need it for reasons known to them. Disabled/elderly/infirm/pregnant etc people can already occupy the seats too! ;) Agreed that people could do more to help others in need though, if they are able to!
had this seat a little while before i realised it didnt suit my car and was at risk of buckle crunch in the case of an accident. Changed it and got a two way elite which is rear facing and really easy to put child in.
adac do independent testing though you may need Google translate. This age group are safer rear facing though rear facing. Some rear facing seats do swivel
My son has been in this since 10 months. The ease of getting him in and out with the swivel function is amazing!!It fits really tight too with the seat belt as it doesnt just clip in it also has a device to remove any slack out of the seat belt. We also have the pearl isofix in my partners car which is much smaller and so much harder to put my son whos 3 in.
I get that swivel is easy though I much prefer safe. Rear facing is significantly safer.
Second the Joie 360, picked ours up a few weeks ago from boots, using the 10% code and extra boots points, worked out at £130 per seat (bought 2), ticks all the boxes, isofix, spins,rear facing option to 4 years. Check it out
Thank you (y)
great seat and great price
Looks like mods had to intervene because _your_ assumption that most people could easily spot the age of the car was wrong :D
Looks like the HUKD mods have changed the title for him now.
Would love you to show me examples of cars advertised as 'ex demo' that are three years old, versus ones that are under a year? It's a *very* reasonable assumption.
Assumptions again! D'oh!
Lol why would you lease a car that's worth 5k???
£99 fee removed too now (y) For anyone that might be interested, 12k a year is £274.74, £824.22 initial/deposit (I do around 10k a yr, so would prefer not to watch my odometer if getting close to exceeding it)
Thanks dude. I hate a**holes that go through HUKD to post BS like that. They must get a kick out of making strangers on the Internet excited about non existent deals. What an ahole.
He didn't. There no leasing company which will give you such deal. About a year ago NVS eas offering golf r estate for about 8k for 2 years. Since that deal no other company got even close. So don't wait for it because it wont happen.
Where have you seen a golf R for £250? Would snap that deal up in a heartbeat.
0-60 is actually 5.7 seconds, not sure why they started that's it's 4.4 seconds. That's m3 territory , no way this car is that fast
This (range of) product is a absolute con. I bought the previous version of this, being a cautious new father. Complete and utter waste of cash, once we'd taken it back for the 3rd time because it was repeatedly indicating the seat was securely in place - when the seat wasn't even in the car - I gave up and took the batteries out. Our other car had no isofix and the seats belted into the car very securely for only slightly more hassle anyway. This product is basically about making an absolute bomb out of people that are (rightly) scared for the safety of their children, and on that basis, this might be a deal for this product, but this product is certainly not any kind of deal.
Thanks OP these bases are really rugged and there are second hand ones that look like new and are a LOT cheaper. Yes buy a new seat/carrier but the bases are so well made they last for decades.
I have this base in my car. Definitely recommend it. I’ve used the Pebble Plus and now the 2way Pearl. Great price :)
3 WAY base is on its way ..
Got one like this last year different colour. I use it as a cushion on my car seat it’s great.
Thanks op, ordered up!
Great thank you. Had these before in a different colour they are comfy and wash up really well (y)
Look like the ones you get in IKEA but those are £5, they are not comfortable at all, hope they have these in-store
I believe the zero 1 only goes to 18kg though so if you've got a chunkier child then the Reverso is a much better buy as wouldn't get you to age 4 otherwise. We've got 25kg seats so isofix isn't an option (youngest was 18kg by 2.5 years) but have been more than impressed with the safety tests on them and their secure fit in the car. Regarding kids unbuckling the 3 point belt you can get buckle guards to reduce that risk.
We have Recaro Zero.1 and it goes to 4 on isofix. A lot more money though. Cant say I'd ever consider scrimping on car seat, it's literally life or death and frankly if I could pay £10000 more to make them 2x as safe, I would. I believe isofix IS safer, particularly in a lateral impact or roll. I'll try to find the link. Equally kids cant undo isofix and I have a 3yr old who would have the straps off in minutes with a belt fix. lol. It's hard enough to make the buckle child proof (he isn't quite strong enough to release it thankfully)
Great seat for the money and the only isofix seat that goes to such a high weight (NB isofix is no safer than belt fix but some people just prefer). Bear in mind though that most children will outgrow by height rather than weight as due to it being an isize seat it's got a 105cm limit.
Yes it would, but you’ve got to remember that the function of a high backed booster is simply to lift your child up so that the seatbelt can restrain them correctly in the event of a collision. A high backed booster doesn’t have to fit solidly in a car with little or no movement like a seat for a younger child does.
So a non SL isofix would be sturdier? As for us it would not be used in another car.
We have two of these seat and I’d definitely recommend. Fab price, heat!
The SL part of the name stands for Soft Latch - this photo is a Kidfix SL (which I paid £76 for a couple of years ago and thought was a good deal, it was the cheapest I could find at the time) and you can see the isofix points are on a strap. They are not a rigid part of the seat. They can be pulled in completely so that you can use the seat in any car.
This uses ISOFIT which is a variation on isofix
Whilst the Adventure doesn’t score particularly highly, the Britax Kid (like the Kidfix range just without the isofix!) scores better than all the fancy Britax isofix high backed boosters (even the ones with side impact cushions and pads for the seatbelt). The Cybex ones seem to be rated the same for the non-isofix versions of their isofix boosters.
Not sure I'd completely agree with your sentiments regarding isofix. Look at some of the ADAC (German version of AA) crash tests on youtube or others, you'll soon see that's simply not the case.
The main function of isofix on a high backed booster is to secure the empty seat in the car when your child isn’t in it. With this seat you have to remember to fasten the seatbelt over it if you are driving without your child in it, having isofix wouldn’t make it any safer. If you want to pay more the Britax Discovery SL is an identical-shaped seat with a better cover and soft latch isofix connectors. SL (or Soft Latch) just means the isofix connectors are on straps rather than being a rigid part of the seat. Like this....
Lol no not arguing either, just the fact I had no choice but to use a seatbelt version. Absolutely fine if you install correctly
True, not arguing just stating. Presumably isofix is safer, though.
Does seem to drop to this price every 2 weeks or so, decided to get now as you never know it might just stop fluctuating. Got the pram from Tesco eBay which takes the seat for £41 So for a full travel system at £111 all in seems like a great deal.
No, the base is only for this infant carrier seat.
This drops down pretty much every week to this price. It is a great price for both though if you are in the market for one
can it be used after 18th months i.e buy a bigger seat and still use ISO FIX base?
Lowest *£59.96 Feb 11, 2018
Awesome, thanks. Ordered the 'sold by amazon' one @8.00, but I had like 40 pounds promotional credit so got it for free :) thanks OP!
How did this get so hot 😏 :/
Only for the passenger/co-pilot?
So your seat belt won't retract with this on? Does it just dangle there when you remove seat belt?
ahh sorry of course i shall update the post.it can be for any sex not just girls. 8)
Voted hot tho.
Lol just about to buy this for a 2 year boy with a new baby sister. Both my boys wanted and got this toy n a pink pram. BUT THEN I SAW .. GIRLS TOY. Obviously I'm easily influenced... I am an active HOTUKDEALS member. (lol) I see I do (lol)
Have a look at crash tests for impact shield seats... I had one before I'd seen the rollover videos :(
Here you go: Which? verdictA solution for heavier toddlers If you have a toddler too young to use a high-backed booster, but too heavy for a Group 1 seat, what do you do? That's where the Joie Bold steps in. This multi-group child car seat can be used with a harness up to 25kg (around seven years old). Joie child car seats have been hit and miss in our crash tests, so find out how this one did in our full review.Can use a harness up to 25kg,multigroups seat, well-padded seat, lots of adjustment options Difficult to install, lots of different modes give a high risk of misuse Overall, this seat gets an average or satisfactory three-star score for safety. The crash-test results for each mode are between three and four stars, but as we see with many multi-group seats, the scores are lowered due to the difficulty of installing the seats in the correct mode. However, this is a good-quality seat that could be an option if you have a heavier toddler who's outgrown a normal Group 1 seat, as you can use the harness up to 25kg (around seven years old) on this model. What is it? The Joie bold is a multi-group 1/2/3, forward-facing child car seat that is approved for use with babies from 9kg (around 12 months) up to 36kg (around 12 years old). There are multiple ways to use and install this car seat in your car: As a Group 1 seat using the harness. As Group 1/2 harnessed seat, from 9- 25kg forward facing, your child is held in place with a harness while the seat is attached using Isofix connectors, a top-tether strap and the car's adult seatbelt. As a Group 2 seat, installed using Isofix and a top tether, and you have the choice to use either the harness or the seatbelt to keep your child in place. If using the harness, you still need to use the seatbelt to attach the car seat. As a Group 2/3 seat (15-36kg) installed using Isofix and a top tether, with your child held in place with the car's adult seatbelt. You can also use the seat from 25kg- 36kg in this way, too. There are three recline positons and it comes with a removable cup holder. How safe is it? For each seat we test, we use state-of-the-art dummies that record the forces of the crash on key parts of their bodies. We crash test each seat several times in the different formats it can be used in. The Joie Bold gets a total test score of 50% and an average or satisfactory three stars overall for safety. As we tend to see with multi-group seats, or those using a top tether, the overall safety score is lowered because of the higher risk of misuse, due to the multiple configurations and different ways to install this seat. As a Group 1/2 seat is gets an overall score of 54%, with a satisfactory three-star safety rating. It gets an average three-star rating for forward-facing crash protection and a good four-star side-impact protection rating. In Group 2/3 mode it gets an overall score of 46%, but with a good four-star overall safety rating. It gets an average or satisfactory three-star rating for forward-facing crash protection and a good four-star side-impact protection rating. The overall test score is lowered in this configuration due to how complicated it is install and the risk of getting it wrong. However, if you're in the position where you have a toddler who exceeds the 18kg upper limit of a Group 1 seat, but isn't old enough to use the car's adult belt, the actual crash-test ratings are satisfactory and good, so this seat could be a solution here. Is it easy to fit? Our installation and fitting checks are carried out by car seat experts with many years of experience. They carry out more than 500 fitting and installation checks each year on all the car seats we test. Plus, we use parents and children, which help our experts identify the potential risks that parents may have when trying to fit a child car seat. The instructions and warnings easy to understand, which is good, because this seat is awkward to install, and there's an increased risk of doing this incorrectly. Read the instruction manual, not just the quick-reference guide on the side of the seat. We also recommend watching the installation videos on the manufacturer website. It's also a very heavy seat, which makes fitting it a little bit tricky. We'd always recommend getting a car seat fitted to your car by a trained expert before you buy. This way you can see if it actually fits your car or if there are any problems, such as angled seats or seatbelts that don't fit properly. You'll be able to see if the front passenger seats, or any other seats, are affected by the position of the car seat, and if you're upgrading a car seat, you'll be able to see if your child finds the new one comfortable. Is the seat comfortable? Yes, there's a large amount of padding and good support for little legs, however the actual seat isn't the most spacious. The headrest adjusts to 11 different heights, which helps to provide a better fit as your child grows. The harness automatically adjusts as you pull the headrest up, so there's no fiddly rethreading of the harness to change it. Despite being a multi-group seat, it doesn't take up a huge amount of space in the back of the car, unlike other models we've tested. Our testing includes an ergonomic assessment of each seat to make sure your child will be in the best position when travelling, and this seat gets a good rating. Buckling your child into the car seat can be fiddly. Once you no longer wish to use the harness, it can be stowed away inside the seat. There's also a removable insert to use with younger babies. Is there anything I should watch out for? We're continually evolving our tests to help influence the car seat standards, and help to keep babies and children safer. We changed our test programme in 2011 and 2015, so results aren't directly comparable between changes. For more information, visit our How we test car seats page. Please remember that car seats don't always fit in all cars, so it's vital you check how well this model fits in all the vehicles you'll be using before you buy. Either check the car seat manufacturer fitting list or contact your car manufacturer for specific information. Is there anything else I should know? It's easy to remove the seat cover and it's machine washable. Should I buy it? If you're in the position where you have a toddler who exceeds the 18kg upper limit of a Group 1, but isn't old enough to be restrained by the car's adult seatbelt, the actual crash-test ratings are acceptable, so this could be a good solution. The overall test score is lower because of how complicated it is to install. Some other multigroup seats we've tested, such as the Diono Radian 5and the Joie Every Stage, have also been marked down due to being complicated to install, but they also had poor crash-test results in Group 1 mode, whereas this seat gets a satisfactory rating.
Ho does Joie Bold compare with this?
My LO is 4 now though I always used rear facing . This looks like front only, certainly wouldn't put a baby in a front facing.
Another great deal ontheqt that's why I follow your deals
Just bought one plus 2000 boots points today only which is £20 in my boots card. So the car seat actually cost £99.
I'd save the extra £30 and go with Stages over Every Stage anyway as it has a deeper seat so more legroom. If you need to use it ff in harnessed mode the Every Stage didn't get good safety reviews compared to the Stages. Plus when the time comes to use as a hbb both seats are bulky and hard to plug in compared to a dedicated hbb so, although useful as a spare/occasional seat, not great to use on a day to day basis and much better to spend that £30 on a dedicated hbb.
I think that's Joie Stages, which doesn't have the ability for Group 3. See link: https://www.halfords.com/kids-zone/car-seats/baby-car-seats/joie-stages-0--1-2-child-car-seat They currently do not have the Every Stage in Halfords.
Got a link?
Under £90 in Halfords.
The travel system on its own is £150 in argos. Add the joie wish bouncer and snacker highchair and it comes to £244.95. The discount is that the travel cot is included for £20 more. Good value but the original price is more reflective of a high mark up than value.. Heat added.
https://www.online4baby.com/red-kite-joie-push-me-fusion-everything-you-need-travel-system-bundle-galaxy This one includes the Pram also :)
Can't tell you how good/bad this system is but heat for the value. It doesn't look like it has a pram facility/attachment though which is a neg.
Product Size(L x W x H): 55.00 x 39.00 x 0.20 cm Errrrmmm, that picture is deceiving.
