I'm looking for an ERF seat for my granddaughter who is reaching the limits of her Maxi-Cosi Pebble - has to be securable with a seat belt as I have isofix points but other grandparents don't.

This looks like a good reasonably priced option, but I'd really appreciate thoughts from anyone who might own one

It seems to get good reviews, but you do know you have the buy the base separately on top of the cost of the seat don't you?

The base can be fitted with ISOFIX or the seatbelt so it will suit everybody.

Thanks Alice, I discovered that you had to also buy the base about 30 seconds after posting!

Still seems like it could be good value at £260 for both (compared to the eye watering prices on some ERF seats), just want to be sure that I'm not compromising on safety and wondering whether there are any better seats out there in the same price bracket?

I tried this today but would love to hear anyone else's reviews. MyMeMy did you end up going for this one?

Hopeful bump smile

Hello Laquila - just saw this sorry!

We tried the seat in Mothercare and really liked what we saw, but it turned out that our granddaughter was still within the weight range of her original car seat at that time.

She's just about out of it now, so I'm just checking whether anything has changed in the last couple of months - so far this still seems like the best option for us. Will probably buy within the next week... Did you buy one after?
