Cosatto Moova Group 1 Hello Dolly Car Seat Review - Guest Post

Sunday 11 November 2012

Guest post by mummy2five.

Being a Cosatto buddy means I get to put all of their brightly coloured products to the test, I have already put the Yo Golightly pushchair, Hapi Apple 3sixti circle & Slim Jim highchairs through their paces so now it is time to see how the Moova Group 1 Hello Dolly Car Seat performs.

The Car seat arrived & we swiftly set about opening the box, the car seat weighs 5.3kg so R & little T hindered helped mummy to pull the car seat out of its box. We cleared away the box & all stood there to admire her for a short while(all of 5 seconds) before R dived in, she positioned herself in the seat & pulled at the harness for me to lock her in. The Moova car seat has a 5 point safety harness, the 2 shoulder straps have padded covers on which feature the Hello Dolly design & the buckle also has a padded cover attached to the crotch strap. The 5 point safety harness is fully adjustable by pressing down on the safety catch & pulling on the shoulder straps this will make the harness bigger. To make the harness smaller you just need to pull on the adjustment strap until the harness is a snug fit for your baby. 

The Moova is suitable for a child that is 9-18kg, it is forward facing & does have a nice recline on it for when you child takes a nap. When R sat in it in our front room I reclined the seat and said "go sleep" to her, she then closed her eyes & pretended to go to sleep. I really like that the Moova car seat is very well padded, it comes with a removable, reversible  padded seat liner which features the Hello Dolly design on one side & a plain light purple on the other. Having this makes cleaning the car seat much easier, if your children are anything like mine, when they want food they want it no matter where they are sitting so their car seat can sometimes get a little messy so easy cleaning makes a parents like much easier. 

The Moova may look pretty but sheer prettiness is not all it has to offer, it has passed all of the rigorous testing that Cosatto put it through with flying colours, it has side impact protection & is the comfiest car seat I have actually ever touched!. The car seat is really easy to fit(a video will be available soon) & can be fitted in the front or rear passenger seats. The seat sits quite high up too which I find toddlers love because they can see where they are going which means they are more settled whilst out & about.

The Moova group 1 car seat has a  length of 54cm, a width 44cm & a depth 64cm, I put my gorgeous niece in it to try out because she is really tall for her age & she fitted nice & snug in it too, she still had plenty of head room. The Moova can be bought direct from Cosatto for £110 which is excellent value & worth every penny, especially as it comes with a 4 year guarantee.
