Joie has launched a brand new birth to booster car seat, the i-Spin Grow, and it’s already winning awards. With years of ‘are we there yet’ ahead, this safety seat packs in the most must-haves including i-Size and a 360° spin. The Joie i-Spin Grow will support your child on their very first trip to the hospital, right up until their first days at school – or 125cm in height!
Forget about ages, stages and complicated car seat groups, this one-time purchase will support your child from day one up until they’re around 7 or 8 years old. You’ll save money and time with this one-time purchase that expertly covers all bases.
Tailored for even the tiniest of passengers, the seat’s grow-with-me infant insert has four individual pieces for a custom fit at every stage, so you can be sure your baby is safe.
One-time ISOFIX and top tether installation can be used in both rearward and forward-facing modes. Once you’ve installed the seat once, you’re done. There’s no need to adjust or reinstall. The steel-reinforced ISOFIX connectors and rebound bar offer a firm install, and Joie’s clever VeriFit™ install technology uses sound and light to alert you about incorrect installation to ensure your little one’s seat is secured correctly.

The easy-to-use, one-hand 360° spin is going to revolutionise your life if you haven’t already tried this technology. A 360° spin makes buckling up super easy, which is great for those suffering with back problems, or new mamas who have had a C-section. And who are we kidding, if you’ve got a heavy, uncooperative toddler, 360 IS the dream. Joie’s Simple Swivel™ turning activator is positioned where you would naturally reach for an effortless spin, so life on the road couldn’t be easier.
For kids under four years old, rearward facing is proven to be four times safer than forward-facing your child. And thanks to Joie’s i-Size Grow’s extended rearward harness, your precious cargo can rearward face for longer. (From birth to 105 cm or 18.5 kg.)
The i-Spin Grow is suitable for forward-facing with a 3-point vehicle seat belt for kids measuring 100-125 cm or up to 25 kg. The Tri-ProtectTM headrest offers layer upon layer of protection including state-of-the-art memory foam. The Guard Surround Safety™ panel attaches to the door side for optimal side impact protection if there’s room in your vehicle. These can be removed if/when required.
Whether they’re buckled up using the 5-point harness or the seat in belted booster mode, you can be sure your pint-sized passenger has the safest ride.
Little ones can travel in comfort thanks to the six-position recline which adjusts on demand in both rearward and forward-facing mode. The Tri-Protect™ headrest offers security with three layers of protection inside the wings, including patented Intelli-Fit™ memory foam for the ultimate comfy ride.
Joie has clearly been listening to parents, with so many intuitive, easy-to-use features. The one-hand, 7 position Grow Together™ headrest and harness system adjusts simultaneously and requires no re-threading of the harness. The 5-point harness with magnetic buckle holders with shoulder and lower buckle covers easily tighten with one pull motion. When you’re in booster mode, the Harness Hideaway compartments neatly store the 5-point harness. Too easy.
The i-Spin GrowTM was reviewed by a panel of real mums who praised it for its 360° spinning function that makes it easy to use. The i-Spin Grow has also been commended for its stylish design and comfortable headrest.
Describing the seat, one reviewer said, “Being able to spin the car seat round means no awkward angles to get baby or toddler in. Baby looks comfy in the seat and it is easy to tilt when baby is sleeping without waking – this is definitely one to recommend.”
The Joie i-Spin Grow is available in Oyster or Eclipse. RRP £400
