Time has gone so quickly since our second daughter was born, and last weekend, the time came to choose her 'big girls' seat. She has been using the rear facing seat that came with the Graco travel system we bought, but her feet were hanging over the edge, and once they weigh 20lbs it is advised...

“Excellent car seat”

published 08/04/2004

Comfortable, easy to fit

None

Britax Eclipse This is a great car seat for toddlers, which I would definietlty recommend without hesitation. I bought this car seat for my son when he was about 14 months old, and chose Britax because they specialise in car safety belts. It is designed for children from 9 months to 4 years, who...

“Safely In my Comfy Seat”

published 05/03/2004

5 point harness, choice of fabrics,

Bulky, expensive

When our daughter was little I knew that we would have to buy a forward facing car seat and that we would need to investigate which one we wanted. I knew I wanted a Britax one and the two which we narrowed it down to was the Renaissance and the Eclipse. Both were quite similar and were the 2 top...

The Side Wings are quite Hard

The Britax Eclipse Si Car Seat is the third seat we have owned in one year, we did like his previous Mamma's & Pappa's car seat (which I've also reviewed) but he has now outgrown it and the second one we bought which was by 'Scallywags' concerns me about its safety. So we decided to go with a...

“Safe as houses”

published 05/05/2002

Safe

heavy and not cheap

"An extremely practical child car seat", or so the brochure says, I agree too. My son is now 9 months old. He loves the car. He rides around amazed at all the moving scenery, the other cars on the road and he has found that riding in this forward facing seat has made car journeys much more fun...

“Eclipsed and spotty”

published 18/02/2003

Cover can be washed, trusted manufacturer

Cover is fiddly to remove, can't be tumbled

I bought a Britax Eclipse seat for my daughter when she was about 9 1/2 months and had reached the all important weight of 9kg to move into a forward facing seat. She is still using this seat and is now 2 1/2 years old. First important safety fact of this opinion, for this seat your child must...

“Moving baby up a stage”

published 03/08/2003

Sturdy, lightweight, comfortable, reclines

Doesn't fit in the back of my car

I found the enormous array of car seats on offer completely daunting. It seemed that no sooner had I made the momentous decision about prams and first stage car seats that it was time for another decision that I felt rather un qualified to make! The difficulty with buying for a baby is that you...

“Safety Warning”

life savers if fitted properly

can be easily not be fitted properly

This opinion, is really a general comment on the safety of fitting a baby car seat. I work in the motor trade, and one of this things we have been taught to do is fit child saftey seats properly. When servicing cars, it is amazing how many people do not follow the guidelines set out in the user...

We bought the Eclipse 2 years ago from our local ford dealer. It was the one recommended for our Focus. Yes - It works with our car, but having transported various other children with their seats, I am very disappointed that we bought it. My son is now 2 and 9 months. It is made by the respected...

Expensive and heavy

This car seat has been tested time and time again apparently, by road safety officers, and it has come out as being one of the safest car seats available. It is suitable for children from about 9 months old till abot 4 yrs. But really it all depends on the childs weight and wether or not they can...

not the easiest car seat to fit

This car seat is group 1 which is suitable from approx 9 months - 4 years. I paid around £100 for this car seat when my son was too big for his first rear facing seat. Benefits are that it comes with a more than adequate recline, 5 point safety harness and is lovely and padded. The sides come...

I bought this car seat for my son as a follow on from his baby carrier seat, it has lasted well 2 and a half years and is very well adjustable for children from around 9 months to three years in my experience. I have swapped now for the Britax evolva seat as my son is almost four and I found this...
