DO NOT BUY the 4baby Marino Car Seat

I too purchased this deal from 4Baby from the Bounty offers and found it absolutely dreadful to fit and was not happy once fitted cos it did not seem safe. There was movement and excessive play so we went to Mothercare and the assistant was horrified that a car seat like this was available through the Bounty website. After being installed in my car for one week I was also horrified to see how the seat belt had moved out of position making the base of the seat useless!!! In an accident this seat would not protect a baby and I have done numerous searches on the web for a safety review but have failed so I can only give my advice. DO NOT BUY THIS SEAT!!!

We have now brought two Britax car seats from Mothercare which have safety reviews and the staff find the car seat recommended for your car.. The service at Mothercare was excellent and now we have piece of mind that our little girl is protected. Cheap deals are not worth the safety of your child.

It looks like a team tex/naina/baby start seat.

Very low quality and a nightmare to fit securely.

You shouldn't buy any seat without checking it fits your car first.

A word of advice! We bought this car seat through a bounty offer, and it was terrible!!!! It wobbled around all over the place, and when the car seat fitter from Mothercare saw it she was appalled! It may look like a good deal but don't waste your money! That is all!!!
