Review: Joie Spin 360 Group 0+1 Car Seat

Joie Car Seat

From years of experience, finding the right car seat for both your child and your car can be a huge challenge, especially when rules and regulations change.

Buying the wrong child car seat could mean you’re putting your child’s life at risk, so it is important to do your research first.

When you first have a baby, it is common to buy travel systems, where the car seat can be attached to the pram / pushchair base so you don’t have to wake the baby getting them in and out of the car.

As children get older, you should choose a child car seat based on your child’s height and weight and it is worth remembering that children must use a rear-facing seat until they are 15 months old and longer if possible, as it is much safer.

We were introduced to the Joie 360° car seat at The Baby Show last October and fell for its practicality. After spending years contorting myself into various shapes as I tried to wrestle an unwilling toddler into their car seat, this turning traveller spins forward, rearward and everywhere in between!!

This means that you can spin the car seat round to face you, whilst you strap your baby into it!!

This Group 0+/1 car seat begins as a rearward facing infant seat up to 18kg, then can convert to a forward facing seat from 9-18kg.

Installing the Joie 360°

The car seat comes with an integrated load leg, which is folded under the seat when you get it out of the box. When you fit the car seat to the isofix points, make sure this is at its shortest height, as you can adjust it to the correct setting after fitting.

When the car seat is fitted correctly, the indicator on each side and on the load leg will show green. If they show red, the seat is not fitted correctly.

Joie 360° – Comfort and Practicality

Both Abbey and Lilah love this car seat and it is easy to see why!

This spinning safety seat turns all around for accessible child harnessing and effortless rearward-to-forward transitioning, by a simple, one-handed press of a button.

Abbey has a Nissan Juke and Lilah’s previous car seat took up so much room that the passenger seat had to be at its most forward setting, so could not be used. The Joie 360° car seat is one of the smallest rotating car seats available and the load leg fits snuggly to the rear seat, whilst the base is secure and streamlined so the passenger seat can be used as normal.

Lilah Reward Facing

The seat itself has 5 recline positions, which can be used both rearward and forward facing, ensuring that your baby is comfortable and happy whether awake or asleep.

Other great features of the car seat are the plush, deluxe cushioning and washable fabrics and built in side ventilation to keep Lilah cool.

The final feature we love is the Grow Together™ multi-height headrest and harness system which adjust simultaneously.  This means that the car seat does not require any harness re-threading which I always found a challenge, remembering which bit went where!

The Joie Spin 360 Group 0+1 Car Seat has an RRP of £199 and is available from Very.co.uk

    She’s getting so big! I love the idea of this seat and wished they had them when mine were small, the amount of times i’d find myself in impossible positions and resembling a contortionist just to clip them in, and don’t get me started when they go rigid and won’t bend into the seat!!
