The Joie i-Spin 360 i-Size Car Seat is an i-Size ECE R129/02 tested car seat, suitable for use from birth to 105cm, which is around 4 years old. Installation in the car is done with ISOFIX and support leg. Red and Green installation indicators confirm that everything is fitted correctly.
i-Size is a European-wide car seat regulation, introduced in 2013. The aim is to make car seats safer. It’s designed to keep children rear-facing for longer, provide better protection from side impact collisions and make car seats easier to fit correctly.
It can be used the entire time rear-facing, or using the clever Smart Ride™ lock-off, you can choose to forward-face after at least 15 months.
The best feature on the Joie i-Spin 360 Grey Flannel is the Simple Swivel™ turning activator, positioned for easy access on the side of the seat. Spin seats are a revelation to modern parents and make it easy to place your child in the seat or get them out. The 360 degrees rotation can be done one handed.
Keeping baby completely comfortable at nap time, the Sleepytime tilt™ has 6 different recline positions, which you can use in both rear and forward-facing positions. You can also adjust whenever needed.
To comply with the side impact testing of i-Size, the car seat has Guard Surround Safety™ - automatically engaging side impact panels that pop out at each side when the harness is tightened.
Growing with your child, the headrest and 5-point harness adjusts simultaneously together, so there's no need to worry about rethreading! There are 6 positions to choose from for your tiny newborn or 4 year old child. The headrest gives extra protection with three layers built inside the wings, including patented Intelli-Fit™ memory foam.
Making it a perfect fit for small babies, the i-Spin comes with an infant insert that can be split into 3 sections. As they outgrow it, the insert can be removed.
The whole seat is covered in plush cushioning and soft fabrics, with built-in side ventilation for warmer days.
The current safety guidelines advise that newborn babies are not left in their car seat for longer than 30 minutes. For babies 2-6 months, no longer than 2 hours. It is also safer to keep your child rear-facing for as long as possible - a minimum of 15 months but ideally 4 years. A child should never be in their harnessed car seat with a thick winter coat or snowsuit on.
