Football Fever!

21 Jun

Hi folks,

There’s no getting away from the football fever that is upon us right now. You literally can’t go anywhere without World Cup Football Fever 🙂 I have to admit though… I do love it. And Seth… well, he utterly adores it!

Seth recently joined Mini Kicks. I know he’s only little, but he simply adores kicking a ball. He loves watching it too. We thought it’d be such a great way to boost his confidence, help him to make new friends & to also help with building his coordination & other physical skills. He’s absolutely thriving & he just adores his coaches.

So… What would be the perfect car seat to travel to & from footie training? Of course, bearing in mind that safety comes first… but it doesn’t hurt to look good while you travel too…

Joie have partnered with Liverpool Football Club to bring out a stunning range of products. Seth has the Joie Every Stage FX in the red LFC design. It’s stunning & just utterly perfect. Funny story… when this was delivered – the delivery guy had a full on conversation with me on where he could buy a one lol. He literally went back to his van to go order one on his smart phone. Love it.

So… let’s get the technical stuff out the way first… this is literally the only car seat you’ll ever need. It’s effectively 4 seats in 1! This is a 0+/1/2/3 Stage Car Seat, rear facing from birth to 18kg & forward facing from 9kg to 36kg. When rear facing this is secured via the car seat belt. When forward facing in group 1 , this seat has easy & exact ISOFIX installation. When you progress round to 2/3 for high back booster mode there is an easy ISOSAFE connection. So you can rest easy knowing that this car seat is rock solid & isn’t go anywhere.

What are the features? 

▪ Group 0+/1/2/3 car seat

▪ Suitable rearward facing from birth to 18kg/4 years

▪ Suitable forward facing from 9kg to 36kg/12 years

How much does it cost I hear you ask!? This car seat retails for around £250. Now, that may seem pricey, but when you think that this literally goes from birth to 12yrs… it’s such a bargain! Amazing investment. This is the ONLY car seat you will EVER need!

Neither mine or my husbands family live near us, so we seem to be frequently travelling a good old distance to visit people. This car seat is just so perfect for those long journeys… safe… secure & comfortable.

With regards to installation… I did leave this in the capable hands of my darling husband. He did, however tell me that it was super easy to do. I shall leave this video here to talk you through the installation.

So overall… we just can’t get enough of this carseat. It’s comfy, we love the football badge – my hubby is from Liverpool so it’s like his ideal choice. Its comfortable, it gives you the freedom of choice with regard to rear & forward facing. Only YOU know what is right for you & your little one. For us, everything is perfect… even the little side pockets. They’re perfect for holding that precious cuddly toy & drinks cup for long journeys.

I do hope that you’ve found this review interesting & useful.

Thanks so much as always for reading!

Love & Huggles,
