Nuna Rebl Plus i Size Car Seat Review
Nuna Rebl Plus i Size Car Seat Review
The Nuna Rebl Plus i Size Car Seat is an innovative, 360 degree turning car seat. Suitable from birth to approximately 4 years, this seat faces both rearward and forwards with a one button release changing between the two. Installed using ISOfix points in your vehicle, the Nuna Rebl Plus i Size Car Seat includes a strong protective shell and green indicators ensuring first class safety for your baby.
The 5-point safety harness can be held out of the way when you’re placing your child inside the seat using a ‘harness holder’ located on each side of the seat. We love this feature because it stops having to rummage around looking for the buckle and straps once you’ve put your baby inside. The harness can also be adjusted with one easy pull.
The seat unit can rotate 360 degrees, which allows for your child to face both rearwards and forwards. It is suitable for use rear facing from 40 to 105cm (approx birth until 4 years old) but can be used forward facing from 80 to 105cm. The full 360 spin feature makes getting your baby in and out of the car seat very easy. You can simply spin the seat to face the door. It is really easy to turn with the pull of one button.
Each configuration has 7 possible recline positions giving your baby plenty of comfortable positions to sleep and sit in.
Removable infant head and body inserts are included with the Nuna Rebl Plus, these inserts are made from memory foam and offer side impact protection and create a more comfortable and fitted environment for a smaller baby. Also included is an ‘airy mesh’ seat and headrest cover for added seat protection. For warmer weather, seat ventilation panels also help create the perfect climate for your baby.
The Nuna Rebl Plus i Size Car Seat is suitable from birth to 18.5kg (40 to 105cm) in the rear facing position (approximately 0 to 4 years old), and from 80cm to 105cm (or 18.5kg) in the forward facing position (approximately 1 to 4 years). Your vehicle needs to have ISOfix connection points in the seat it is being fitted into and the floor must also be solid (no compartments underneath etc.).
This rearward-facing travel up to approximately 4 years (105cm) is what makes the Rebl Plus i Size. It has a strong steel frame that is ultra resilient, and all over side impact protection with eps energy absorbing foam. The added support from the stability leg absorbs any impacts whilst also minimising any force on your little one inside. An integrated rebound bar also helps to minimise rotation during impact.
Installation is through one method, no matter which direction you want the seat to face. Due to its rotating seat unit, the base stays installed whilst the seat does all the work.
First, click out the support leg and ISOfix points ready for installation.
Align the ISOfix arms with the ISOfix points in your vehicle seat, then push them into the seat. Once this correctly done, each indicator will turn green leaving you assured that the seat has been fitted correctly. Push the car seat as far back as it can go into the vehicle seat until you are happy with its tightness.
Next, alter the height of the support leg to reach the base of the car until its indicator also turns green. When all three indicators are green, the car seat is correctly installed and you are ready to go.
The car seat weighs in at 15.6kg, and it is suitable for use in rear facing mode from 40 to 105 cm, (birth to four years/child weight 18.5 kg); and from 80 to 105 cm/child weight 18.5 kg in forward facing mode. For installation, its dimensions are: h 65.2 x w 46 x l 64 cm. It also has an i Size safety rating.
