Is This The Ultimate Rearward-Facing Swivel Car Seat?

Joie is one of the UK’s most popular choices when it comes to children’s car seats. Reliable, trustworthy, and reasonably priced, they have a fabulous range of options with it comes to car seats for every age and stage.

The Joie i-Spin Safe in ‘coal’ is the latest car seat to join the ranks, and we jumped at the chance to take the i-Spin Safe out for a test drive.

Joie i-Spin Safe from birth to 4 years

The i-Spin Safe enables children to rearward face from birth up to approximately 4 years of age (or 18.5kg).

You can provide your children with the best possible protection by keeping them in the rear-facing position for as long as possible. Rear-facing car seats help protect delicate necks and spines in the event of a collision by up to 80% more than if the seat was in a forward-facing position [1].

Buckled up safely, my three-year-old now has to bend her legs slightly at the knees in the rear-facing position, and while it’s true that older children may look a little squashed in rear-facing car seats, it’s worth remembering children are incredibly flexible and can sit comfortably in cross-legged positions for long periods of time. Rearward facing is by far the safest way for them to travel.

What is the Swedish Plus Test?

The Joie i-Spin SafeTM is described as a safety powerhouse, but what is it about this seat that sets it aside from its competitors?

Looking at its scientific credentials, the i-Spin Safe boasts a dual-safety certification to ensure the safest ride possible. The seat meets both the new i-Size certification and the highly sought after Swedish PLUS-test certification, a rigorous test only a handful of rotating seats have successfully passed.

The Swedish Plus Test is a car seat safety test carried out by the Swedish Traffic research agency at VTI the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute. The Joie i-Spin Safe has been Plus Test proven, which is an amazing feat, and by no means an easy task.

The i-Spin Safe offers the ultimate in safety

Plus Test car seats ensure that your child is not exposed to life-threatening high-headed forces during a frontal collision. It’s a fact that only a handful of car seats on the market are able to pass this rigorous level of testing, so you can be assured that the i-Spin Safe is a car seat built to provide the ultimate protection.

Sister to the hugely popular Spin SafeTM, the i-Spin Safe incorporates several safety enhancements including a simple swivel turn activator and improved auto engaging guard surround safety and visibility of load leg indicator.

The i-Spin Safe™, also offers the Tri-Protect™ headrest featuring Intelli-Fit™ memory foam, alongside Guard Surround Safety™ side impact protection panels that automatically lock outward when the harness is tightened.

Easy installation with adjustable ISOFIX

The seat’s two-piece support leg has a total of 19 height adjustments and works effectively to provide crash absorption to minimise the impact of a crash. There’s an indicator located on top of base to confirm when you’ve fitted and installed the load leg correctly, for extra peace of mind.

A comfortable infant car seat that grows with your child

The i-Spin Safe is a seat that will grow with your child in the first few years of their life. The infant inserts offer your littlest ones a more tailored fit, which you can adjust and eventually remove as they grow older. The seat’s six-position Grow Together™ headrest and 5-point harness system can be adjusted simultaneously with no need to re-thread the harness.

The i-Spin Safe is made from deluxe cushioning and fabric. Typical of most car seats these days, the seat’s harness and lower buckle each have padded covers for comfort, and they can be tightened with a simple one pull motion.

The Sleepytime Tilt™ technology offers six different recline positions, so your little one will enjoy the comfiest of rides whatever their age – perfect for facilitating those all-important (and inevitable) naps on the go.

Ease and practicality

When choosing a swivel seat, it’s worth checking how easy they are to operate, as some require two hands and a bit of elbow grease, especially as the seat gets older.

The i-Spin Safe is at a great advantage with its one-handed 90º spin action Simple Swivel™ rotating seat, so getting your child in and out of the car has never been easier.
