Joie Spin 360 Signature

The Joie signature label is sophisticated and timeless, with legendary British design to bring a bit of luxury to every journey. Soft, textured fabrics, cognac leather accents and beautifully tailored lines embody this exquisite range, which has been lovingly-crafted to make lasting memories on the road. The Joie spin 360° car seat features an adjustable headrest and harness to grow with your child from birth to approx. four years. Layers of side impact protection and a five-point harness will give parents further peace of mind.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Melissa: The fabrics on the Joie 360 are beautiful. It definitely had a luxurious feel and the seat cover was easy to remove and wash. I was surprised to find that this seat included a summer seat cover (a mesh cover with added breathability). The seat is a very competitive price and I feel you are buying a quality product for this price.

Carolyn: I would recommend this car seat due to the fact there is no need for seatbelt installation and because it goes from birth to group 1. It has newborn inserts and you can move the headrest up and down. It is a very comfortable car seat and has a button to move the car seat around if you want to have your baby forward-facing or rear-facing. This car seat grows with your baby.

Kate: There is a choice of liners with a mesh version for hotter summer weather which is very useful. Having a removable cover with an alternative means that it can be washed more frequently. The plastic strips on the harness covers stop the harness from slipping down and ensure that it stays firmly in place which improves the safety and gives you peace of mind.

How did this product make your life easier?

Jane: Putting a wriggly, squirmy, reluctant baby into a car seat has now been made incredibly easy with the Joie spin 360 signature. As long as you can place baby into the chair and attach the five-point harness then you've cracked it! is really is that simple and it saves time and backache. You no longer have to crouch and twist to put your child in or take them out of the seat. Its all very straight-forward and seems to work very well.

Katie: This is a lovely car seat and the first one that I have tried that has the 360-degree spin function. I thought it was brilliant and it really makes a huge difference in being able to get baby in and out safely. It is a massive back saver when you have a wriggly child to wrestle into the car seat!

Sharon: This product makes life easier as a mum primarily because of the 360-degree spin feature. This saves a lot of backache and you have the option of your baby being rear or forward-facing. The clips are easy to do/undo for mum and not for the baby. It looks stylish and elegant. The material is soft and comfortable for your baby too.

Would you choose this product to win?

Henrietta: The seat is very reasonably priced when you compare it to other seats within the same market. Plus you can usually find a deal if you keep an eye out. We loved the colour of the seat and would definitely purchase one. The spin mechanism made it so easy for us to use in our three-door car too.

Samantha: This product must be a front-runner to win. I have nothing to compare it to as this is the only car seat I have used. However, I have no plans to change from using this product and when my son grows out of it I will keep it for when we decide to have baby number two.

Anna: Unfortunately I wouldn’t. I have three toddlers who are all still using their car seats. The style of this seat means that I can’t get all three in the car together. I wouldn’t have two or three different types of seat together. However, if I only needed one car seat in the car I would probably choose this one.

What changes would you make to this product?

Rebecca: The only thing I would change is the padding on the seat belt buckle. I find this is very big and bulky. When I put my child in the seat I always sit him on it and it’s very difficult to pull the seat belt buckle pad out without him slipping down. I wouldn't change anything except for the price because I can’t afford it. If it was half the price I would 100% buy one.

Victoria: The one thing that I would change which was hard to find one would be to include an option to have a cup holder that you can leave on or take off. This would come in handy for both long car journeys and also during this hot weather especially if you get caught in traffic jams on a hot day. This will allow my toddler to have a drink when needed with it being in a safe place without going all over her.

Anna: If I could change one thing about the Joie 360 signature, it would be the price tag. Although I think it is a fantastic design, I really wouldn't be able to justify spending that much money on a car seat. While I think the materials are excellent quality, I don't think that they need to be that good and perhaps a slightly inferior material could make it cheaper and more affordable for the average parent.
