Which is the best car seat for toddlers?

Kiddy Energy Pro


In a Nutshell
Toddlers love to wrangle their arms free of a seat’s harness straps, instantly making it unsafe. Fortunately, this innovative Kiddy model has no harness, and instead uses a cushioned barrier.

Practicality
With an Energy Pro, in the event of a crash, the child is held by an ‘impact shield’ around the tummy. It’s seatbelt-fix only, but has a fine safety record.

Comfort
It’s made of classy fabrics. The ‘shield’ isn’t uncomfortable and even acts as a handy play table. Kiddy’s Guardian Pro model adapts to fit a child aged 4-11yrs.    

Wow Factor
As well as its eye-catching and novel appearance, the Energy Pro is extremely light to hoist from one car to another.

Nit-picking
Larger toddlers can feel a little confined by the impact shield, particularly in hotter weather.

Also Consider
Mamas & Papas Cybex Pallas-Fix £195, mamasandpapas.com
The Cybex Pallas-Fix relies on a similar no-harness design principle to the Kiddy, but adds ISOFix mounting points into the mix. Even so, the Energy Pro is the more established choice.
