I have been lucky enough to have been testing the Graco Nautilus Group1-2-3 Carseat, so I thought I would do a summary type review of all aspects! My 2 year old toddler, ‘Legs’ as he is known to us, has been the guinea pig sat in the chair, so here goes – review a go-go!
Once the box had arrived and was opened, it was a very simple setting up procedure, a couple of clicks and we were ready to go!
Actually getting the seat into our car was a minor challenge due to the size of our car, but once in the door the fitting was easy as 1,2,3
Legs loves his chair (which he still calls his ‘new chair!’) and the other day on getting in it he said ‘ooo comfy!’
All seems great, and so far (thankfully) we haven’t had the opportunity to fully test the safety of the seat (and am hoping we won’t have to)
If you have read my previous ‘Forced Post’ you will know that I had to clean the covers of the chair, and it all went very well!
We haven’t had a problem with the chair whilst travelling, it is comfy, secure and loved by Legs!
Cup Holder – Winner, Legs was most impressed with the cup holder when the chair arrived and still is! It has held cups, food, sunglasses and even Timmy the sheep has sat in it for a ride!
Storage Compartments – very nice and will hold small objects
Recline – Unfortunately doesn’t recline quite as much as I would of liked, when legs has fallen asleep in the chair, his head tends to fall forward and it has not been possible to get it to stay against the back/headrest
1. Looks good 2. Simple set up and fitting 3. Comfy 4. Grows with the child (up to 12 years old) 5. Easy to clean 6. Easy to follow instructions
1. Recline does not recline as much as we would of liked! 2. The straps got a bit twisted sometimes (although also rectified themselves!)
Thumbs up all round from Mummy, Daddy and Legs!
