Cozy 'n' Safe Merlin Car Seat best for rotation

Having your child rear-facing for longer is the best option for travelling kids. Chris Riley checks out the latest safe seat, the Cozy ’n’ Safe Merlin, £329.99, 

Cozy n Safe Merlin Car Seat best for permanence


Innovative materials and a parent-friendly focus are the hallmarks of this young car seat company, only founded in 2006, and its Merlin seat places a premium on comfort as well as safety.


Offers rear-facing travel from birth up to a maximum weight of 18kg – around the age of four. It has a 360 degree rotating, generously padded seat, so access is never going to be a problem, plus four rear- and three forward-facing recline positions and a non-rethread five-point harness. It’s Isofix installed (with support leg), the dimensions are 64 x 43 x 66cm and it weighs 14kg. The covers are removable and machine washable.


The side-impact protection system on the Merlin uses the sort of high-density polyurethane foam that’s also employed in the construction of racing drivers’ helmets. That’s peace of mind for you, right there.


This definitely isn’t a grab-and-go solution to anyone’s tot transportation needs. In fact, the Merlin is a bit of a beast, so once you’ve got it correctly installed in your car, I can guarantee you won’t want to be moving it any time soon.
