It's important to note that when it comes to child seat law, you have the responsibility to make sure you're in line with it. The child seat law was introduced to the UK in 2006. It ensures youngsters are protected if you are unlucky enough to have an accident whilst on the road.
The law says that all children under 135cm tall need a car seat on all journeys, so it's best to start thinking about the right car seat before your little bundle of joy arrives.
Baby car seats are there to help you out right from the start. Suitable for children from new born to 18kg (roughly 0 ? 4 years or 40cm - 105cm), these car seats keep your little angel safe and comfortable during any car trip. The softly padded seats ensure that your baby remains comfortable, while side impact protection gives you extra peace of mind in case of a collision. Travel safe and in comfort right from the start.
Toddler car seats are suitable for children 9kg to 36kg (roughly 9 months - 12 years or 70cm - 150cm), and they give you the confidence that your child is comfortable and safe, even during longer trips. The seats can be adjusted to best fit your children as they grow. A much needed safety measure, toddler car seats give you the peace of mind to continue to enjoy your car trips with your little one.
Child car seats ensure that your little one travels in safety and comfort. Available for children from 15kg to 36kg (roughly 4 years - 12 years or 100cm - 150cm), a wide range of seats are available.

Keeping your child safe whilst in the car is your number one priority. It's also a legal requirement for a child to be in an appropriate car seat until they're 12 years old or 135cm in height (whichever comes first).
With so many car seats to choose from, it can be tricky to know what you need to look out for. It's important to keep in mind the age and weight of your child, as well as the vehicle the seat is being fitted into.
