Choosing a car seat can be a challenge, you can find a wide range of child car seats for every age, stage and budget.
Safety comes first.
By UK law, all children travelling in a car must use an appropriate child restraint until they are 135cm in height or 12 years of age, whichever they reach first. For a little guidance on the different car seat groups, you can check out our online Car Seat Buying Guide, where we take you through extended rearward-facing baby car seats, child booster seats and every step in between.
Depending on your lifestyle and your little one’s needs, you can choose between single group car seats and child car seats that adapt from one group to the next as kids grow. A Group 0-1-2-3 car seat can adjust to take your little one from birth all the way to 12 years of age. Alternatively, a group 0 baby car seat is lighter and often compatible with a travel systems for seamless journeys with tiny.
Group 0-1 offers the best protection for toddlers. Suitable up to 18kg, this group includes harnessed car seats for 2 and 3 year olds. By 4 years old, some children will be ready to move on to group 2-3 car seats, depending on their size. These high-back booster seats for 4 years and up (approx.) give kids the extra height they need to safely use the vehicle’s seat belt.
