The Joie i-Spin 360 is an i-size seat that can be used as an extended rear facing car seat, meaning your little one will be rear facing from birth to 105cm which is considered to be the safest way for your little one to travel. The seat will spin on its base allowing you to turn the seat towards the car door, making getting your little one in and out of the car really easy, no more stretching and reaching!
You also have the option of moving your child to forward facing from 15 months (usually around 9kg), but the clever mechanism ensures you can’t do this before your little one reaches 80cm (around 15 months) as it won’t rotate to front facing until the headrest is at the correct height.
Fitting the seat is super easy too – there is no rebound bar to get in the way as it is uses ISOFIX fixings and a support leg. Simply click the ISOFIX arms into place on your car and then adjust the 19 position leg until the indicator on the top of the base shows it is fitted correctly!
Moving onto safety – The seat has Joie’s guard Surround Safety panels which automatically extend when your child is in the seat, providing extra safety in the event of a crash. There is also a 5-point harness with shoulder and buckle covers to ensure they are comfy as well as safe. The 3 piece infant insert also ensures they are correctly positioned when they are little.
Now we are onto the little extras to make life a bit easier for you, the parent! As well as the 360° rotating seat, there are 6 different recline modes, all of which can be adjusted without re-installing the seat. Then there is the Grow Together headrest and harness, simply lift the headrest and the harness extends too – so no complicated un-threading and re-threading and when you pull the strap to tighten, the easy one pull motion puts the headrest in the correct place when the harness is tight. Altogether less worrying whether you have it correct or not!
