Gifted |CarGo Seat Review & Giveaway

Let me introduce you to the coolest new booster seat around, The CarGo Seat!!

Say goodbye to bulky boosters and Hello to this NEW lightweight, transportable booster seat that doubles up as a 10-litre suitcase on wheels in seconds.

Safety and Fitting

Before I start on my review, you will need to know the most important bit of information when purchasing any type of car seat for a child.  CarGo Seat meets Europe ECE R44/04 regulation safety standards and has been rigorously crash tested.

CarGo seat is specifically designed for children weighing 22kg to 36kg and a height of 125cm or taller so please bear this in mind before purchasing. The fitting instructions are very simple and while there is a booklet stored within the case, the side of the car seat has easy to follow picture instructions although I would recommend reading the booklet. Fitting the seat is really simple and can be done within a minute. I found the strap adjustment a little finicky the first time and when lifting or closing the handles, it is easiest to keep the yellow button pressed through the whole movement. Ensure the handle is fully lifted and clicked into top position.

The strap must be anchored to the side of the seat that is next to the seatbelt connector, measured to the top of the shoulder. We found it much easier to do this in the house rather than the car, as we could access the back much easier. In the car, the strap is then moved diagonally across to the opposite side where the belt comes over the shoulder before being secured into the connector. If done correctly, it should feel secure and there should be little movement in the strap. The seatbelt fits really easily into the strap connector, which is nice as I have had issues with similar connectors in the past, struggling to get the seatbelt into and out of the connector.

Cleaning

I absolutely love this car seat. So much thought and creativity have gone into making such a simple yet versatile product. The covering material on the seats gets grubby quickly and I find it such a chore having to take the car seats off to wash them, waiting for them to dry and then putting them back on, but with the New Cargo Seat, the body is fully plastic (no metal parts at all) which makes it a lot easier to keep clean and the small washable seat pad attached with strong velcro so it is much easier to wash and dry.

Travel

We run two cars in our household, with my car being the most used with the kids, so their car seats stay in there pretty much all the time. This often means that my car is used by my partner should he need to go out, rather than his own. The main reason for this is because it is such a hassle transporting the two large car seats from one car to the other. However, the Car Go seat is so much smaller, lighter and much easier to move between the two vehicles. 

Storage

Our favourite feature has to be that you can turn it into an easily transportable suitcase on wheels within seconds. Lydia loves taking her favourite teddy Chuppy out with her as well as lip balm, colouring pencils and notepads. So now whenever she stays at Grandma’s or Auntie’s house, she can go, with her car seat, packed with all her things. For the adults, it also means she has a car seat they can use should they need to go out anywhere, rather than having to take one of our larger ones as well as a suitcase.

 

Final Thoughts and Price

We are using this seat for Lydia and she chose her favourite colour, Purple. As you can see from the photo, it’s a nice vibrant colour and CarGo seats are also available in Blue, Green and Pink. Speaking to her the seat is comfortable and she now does not want to go back into her larger car seat and even Emily wants one now, although unfortunately, she is not tall enough to have one yet.

 

The seat retails at just under £55 (and comes with a 12-month warranty), which for its versatility, is well worth the price. It is ideal for anyone who runs multiple cars and has to swap seats or would prefer to swap seats rather than buy additional seats for each car that then need to be stored when not used. It is also ideal for kids who stay around family often that drive, as the seat doubles as a suitcase and car seat saving a lot of hassle. Having trialled this seat for two weeks now we love and highly recommend this seat.

    Great for going on holiday, sometimes car hire companies charge more for the hire of a booster seat than they do for the car!
