The Joie Every Stage 0+/1/2/3 Car Seat will see your child through every stage of their car seat journey. Suitable from birth to approximately 12 years, it is installed using a 3-point car seat belt and is both rear and forward facing.
The Joie Every Stage Car Seat is a group 0+/1/2/3 car seat and can be installed both rear and forward facing. The seat unit is well-padded and a cushioned insert is included for use with younger/smaller children.
There is a 5-point ‘one pull’ safety harness which requires no re-threading as your child grows, it simultaneously adjusts as you change the height of the headrest. The sides of the seat also expand during this, providing more space as they grow. The headrest has 10 possible positions, which we love because you can tell this car seat it going to last a long time.
To recline, there is a button located at the front of the seat so you adjust this with your child inside. When rearward facing, there are 5 recline positions and forward facing has 4. There are also mesh storage pockets located on each side of the seat for your child’s drinks, snacks or small toys.
When using the seat in the group 2 and 3 configurations, the harness can be stowed into hideaway compartments within the seat. Simply lift up the fabrics of the seat and you will find these underneath. There are also mesh storage pockets located on each side of the seat for your child’s drinks, snacks or small toys.
