Impeccably tailored, strong, smart and exceeding the i-size safety standard, the new REBL plus 360° car seat with seriously secure enhancements, cleverly converts so that your little one can ride safer for longer rear facing allowing you can relax and enjoy the journey from birth all the way up to four years old.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Charlotte: I would recommend this product to a fellow mum because it had lots of handy design features. This is a car seat that would stay in one car and would not be used to transfer on a daily basis. The seat was well built and easy to use. My daughter looked comfortable and well secured in the seat. The instructions were also very easy to read and understand.

Sarah: The car seat was very easy to install with the Isofix mechanism. It is easy to strap in my son and very simple to adjust the straps with the use of the sliding top panel. I felt my son was safe and secure in the seat which allows me to feel relaxed knowing he is happy. It has a very good design and a high viewpoint for kids to see outside of the car.

Emma: The enclosed design is very safe. The fabric and padding felt high quality. The ease of design was the winning factor, turning my baby from rear-facing to front-facing means you can use the most appropriate setting depending on the journey type and your baby's mood! The tilt function was the most impressive, as my baby often naps in the car.

How did this product make your life easier?

Kirsty: This product is very easy to install. Using the Isofix is simple, as well as secure. This is beneficial as a mum when initially fitting the product. It’s 360 design is also extremely helpful when taking your child in and out of the car. It allows them to be rear-facing for a lot longer than the standard car seat.

Vicky: I have loved testing the Nuna REBL plus car seat. I have been looking for the next car seat for my little one after using a baby car seat and this one has so many plus points. The first being that you can swivel it to the side to easily get your little one in without twisting your back. The decline position both forward-facing and rear-facing are great.

Holly: The REBL plus car seat is a great design. It was easy to install despite being a little heavy (I would expect this from a car with a built-in Isofix). The spin feature is by far my best mummy hack as it makes it so easy to get a wiggly toddler in and out of the car seat quickly. This is a major plus for any busy mum! The seat and padding are really comfortable and make my little man fell asleep easily. The seat belts were easy to install and easy to get him strapped in quickly, another essential feature for me. They were easy to adjust too.

Would you choose this product to win?

Charlotte: Yes I would. I think it's really well made and stylish. It is extremely comfortable and user-friendly. It's very spacious and has a good recline. You can also use it from birth up to four years old. When facing forward it has a little footplate for little ones to rest their feet on. It is expensive but I think it's worth the money.

Hayley: I do think this product should win. I would use this product over others on the market simply because it's very easy to use. It is easy to put my child in and out the car and with less back pain too. The product stands out because of the colour, the comfort and the ease of use.

Elizabeth: I am very impressed with this car seat. You do need to have Isofix for this seat which could limit the use. There is a slight downside with the lack of travel system compatibility. They are really handy with snoozing newborns but this system does have the ability to last longer than a travel system.

What changes would you make to this product?

Danielle: I love this car seat. The spin function is fantastic and a game changer for me. However, it does cost a lot of money, I know this misses out the travel system car seat so you will save money there. However, if this could be an all stages car seat that would be amazing. It would mean that you have brought the safest car seat from birth which could last until they are no longer needed. This would definitely make people consider it if they had more than one car seat to buy. I have three children and this would have been an expensive option.

Mark: This is a product I highly recommend. It does exactly what is it meant to do and makes life so much easier. The one flaw (which is me finding fault in an otherwise perfect product) is the weight. If you have one car with the base fixed at all times this is fine. On the other hand, if you have two cars and constantly need to swap seats around for swimming, day-to-day, school runs or family outings the seat is extremely heavy to move between cars.

Sarah: I honestly can not think of a single thing I would change about this product. I loved every feature it had available and they were all just so easy and practical to use! I can not describe how helpful it has been to have a car seat that has given my back some much-earned relief. I feel most parents can empathise with that. I would definitely recommend this product a thousand times over.
