Silver Cross Simplicity
The key feature of this car seat is in its name, having been designed to be incredibly simple to fit and use. You can buy a Silver Cross ISOFIX base, which slots into your car without any drama, and it can be fitted very quickly and safely using a seat belt only. Both of these fitting mechanisms have colour-coded indicators, so it’s pretty much impossible to go wrong.
It’s thickly padded, but as a result isn’t particularly roomy, so whilst it’s suitable from 0+, it can be outgrown relatively easily. It can, however come as part of a travel system and is compatible with Silver Cross Wayfarer, Surf and Surf Elevation which are also very good buggies.
It’s incredibly safe, with side impact protection and a five-point harness and it comes with a nice snug footmuff (which other car seat manufacturers can charge over the odds for). It’s quite pricey, but definitely worth it for a sturdy, cosy car seat that looks great and is incredibly well designed.
