Welcome to a world first! Silver Cross has unveiled the Motion All Size 360 car seat and it’s set to be a game-changer for parents. The Motion All Size 360 is the first-ever regulation 129 multi-stage rotating car seat suitable from birth to 12 years old. If you’re looking to invest in a car seat that will grow with your child, this is a brilliant choice.
It can be difficult to know which car seat to purchase when you’re expecting, but the Motion All Size promises to be there for your baby from day one.
An improvement on the popular Motion 360 seat, Silver Cross has re-engineered the Motion All Size 360 to offer the ultimate in longevity, offering a one-size-fits-all car seat solution that adapts as your child grows.
The Motion All Size 360 is the only all-stage rotating car seat on the market and is designed with no compromise on safety or quality, so you’ll never have to purchase another car seat for your child.
Utilising state-of-the-art crash test dummy technology together with the latest understanding of road traffic accidents to best replicate real-life scenarios, the R129 has been put through its paces to ensure the best in safety.
The Motion All Size 360 benefits from Side Impact Protection and is installed using an easy lock ISOFIX system for complete peace of mind. I found installing the seat incredibly simple. With its plush and adjustable newborn inserts and 5-point harness, even the tiniest of passengers will feel safe and secure.
The seat itself is furnished with soft and breathable natural bamboo fabrics that not only look the part but also work to wick away moisture from your baby’s skin, keeping them warm and dry. Bamboo fabric is not only better for the environment, it’s also hypoallergenic, so it’s brilliant for even the most sensitive of skins.
The Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 is a car seat that caters for every age and stage. As your baby grows, newborn inserts can be removed, and eventually, the five-point harness can be stowed neatly away neatly within the seat. There are eight easily adjustable headrest positions so your child can be secured safely and comfortably in both rear-facing and front-facing modes.
The Motion All Size 360 has three recline positions, so you can tilt your baby or child backward to avoid forward slumping during naps. It’s easy to alter the seat’s recline position, as well as adjust the headrest so your growing child is always comfortable.
A rotating seat offers easy loading, which means those all-important naps on the go won’t be interrupted, and infants can be kept rear-facing for as long as possible. The Motion All Size 360 allows rearward-facing up to 105cm or 18.5kg, whichever comes first.
The car seat offers an effortless rotation for easy accessibility to lighter newborns and heavier infants alike. My two-year-old son seemingly weighs a ton these days, but the seat offered an effortless spin with him on board. Unlike other models on the market, there isn’t scope for small items to lodge within the base of the seat which can prevent the seat from rotating, so that’s another major win.
I’ve long since been an advocate of the 360 rotating car seat and preferred them to travel system solutions even when my children were newborn. I found being able to rotate my baby enabled super-simple A to B transitions whether car seat to cot, car seat to buggy or car seat to arms, all with minimal disruption. I was a C-section mama both times, and not having to worry about lifting seats in and out of the car made recovery so much easier.
As with every car seat in the Silver Cross collection, the Motion All Size 360 is supported by a unique mobile app. This links to a QR code on the car seat to provide a step-by-step installation guide so you know you’ve installed your seat correctly.
For a safe and comfortable ride from newborn right through to 12 years old, the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 is well worth the investment. RRP: £375
