  • 1. What did you think of the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat when it arrived?

    The car seat arrived very well packaged and we were very excited to open it. Our first thought when opening the box was how amazing the quality was - and this was before even touching it! The seat looks incredibly comfortable - plenty of padding in all the right places for even the tiniest of babies. I love the colour as it is neutral and blends in nicely with the interior of my car.


    2. How did you find installing and using the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat into your car?

    I was worried about this and expected it to be really complex but it was so simple. It was my first time using an Isofix and I am now a convert! The instructions were easy to follow and the green/red indicators are amazing and such a useful feature providing me with the necessary reassurance that I have installed the seat correctly. The car seat itself is quite heavy but I appreciate that this is due to the inbuilt Isofix base. It was a bit tricky getting it into the back of my car (it is a small, three door car) but I did manage to do it. I really enjoy using this seat as it is just so easy! I can easily and quickly lengthen/shorten the harness which is what you need when you have an unhappy child! I love that there are no metal parts which can heat up and cause burns on hot days. There is also plenty of padding around the buckle area so you don't need to worry about chubby thighs getting pinched!

    3. How did you find the 360° rotation function of the seat?

    For me, this feature is an absolute game changer! I have a small (3 door) car and the ability to rotate the seat means that I can sit my baby in the seat/take him out without having to awkwardly climb in and out the car itself which, with babe in arms, is most definitely not safe. It's so easy to rotate the seat and the children really enjoyed swivelling around in it too. 

    4. How comfortable do you think your baby/child found the Motion All Size 360 car seat?

    Very comfortable! The seat has loads of cushioning and support. My baby always falls asleep in the car and he looks so content and comfortable. My daughter (4 years) really enjoys using this seat and prefers it to her old one. The head support is fantastic in comparison to other seats I have used; especially when used for older children. My daughter had very little support in her old seat so when she fell asleep, she would be extremely uncomfortable. This seat is miles better and together with the different recline options, helps to ensure maximum comfort for children.

    5. Would you recommend the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat to other parents and carers? 

    110% yes! This is by far the best car seat I have come across. It oozes the Silver Cross quality you would expect and it's stylish too. Silver Cross is a brand I trust completely and they definitely did not disappoint with this seat. It is strong, sturdy and durable whilst at the same time providing the security, protection and comfort for your child. It is so easy to make the necessary adjustments to fit the child - I could very quickly amend it to suit my 4 year old after my 11 month old was in it and vice versa. It is great that this seat is suitable from newborns up to age 12. Although safety is the key aspect, Silver Cross really looked at the finer details too and produced a quality seat that is not only an obvious joy for children to sit in, but also a joy for parents to use.  It is definitely a worthwhile investment and the Union Jack on the harness padding is super cute too!





  • 1. What did you think of the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat when it arrived?

    I was really impressed, my first thoughts were how sturdy it is but at the same time still incredibly comfortable.  I really like the colour and the fabrics are great quality and really soft 

    2. How did you find installing and using the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat into your car?

    It’s very easy to install, I’m used to isofix installation already but it would still be very easy to install for someone who had no experience of fitting isofix car seats.  The handy install video is helpful and the indicators that turn from red to green make it clear that you have installed correctly.
    I did find it fiddly to stow the harness behind the seat fabrics but once there they sit there snugly which I thought was a great idea rather than having to go to the effort of removing the harness which can be tricky 

    3. How did you find the 360° rotation
    function of the seat?

    To be completely honest this function is a bit wasted on us, my son is 5 and just happy to climb in whilst it’s forward facing.  I do see a real benefit however when it comes to putting smaller children/babies in, it would make it so much easier.  
    We did still try the rotation function and despite having 3 car seats in the back of our car it still had room to rotate.  


    4. How comfortable do you think your baby/child found the Motion All Size 360 car seat?

    He finds it very comfortable, as mentioned above the fabrics are nice and soft and there’s is lots of padding to keep him comfortable.  He also likes the fact it sits him quite high up so has a good view out if the window! 

    5. Would you recommend the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat to other parents and carers? 

    Yes definitely as a purchase to use from baby upwards as it’s the only car seat you would ever need and the rotation function is so handy.  For parents/caters with older children I probably wouldn’t - not because there’s anything wrong with it but purely because the 360 rotation function isn’t really necessary once they’re older
  • 1. What did you think of the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat when it arrived?


    The packaging was really solid and I had no concerns about the condition of the car seat inside. The box was really unusual and looked like some stairs, which the kids loved although I told them pretty quickly that they weren’t allowed to climb on it!

    The seat is really attractive and smart and would look really nice in any car. On first impressions it looked very padded, safe and comfortable. 


    2. How did you find installing and using the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat into your car?

    My husband has done the bulk of the seat fitting since we had our children and I know that he has found some quite annoying and difficult to install. We found this seat so simple to fit by comparison despite the weight of it as the seat and base is quite heavy due to how sturdy it is. The red and green colour indicators on the ISOFIX bars clearly show whether it is successfully connected to the ISOFIX points in the car. They clip in really easily as they extend out quite far where with some others we’ve used the bars are too short making them very awkward to fit. 

    We have been testing the seat with my son who uses the final setting of the seat with a three point belt. This meant that we had to pack away the harness used for the other settings. It was really easy to tuck the harness into the back of the seat once we figured out where they went, and the seat back is padded enough so that my son didn’t feel them. The bit that the harness plugs into also has a place to tuck away and also cannot be felt when it is placed into position. The harness can be reinstated in a couple of minutes if needed to accommodate a smaller child.

    The one thing we noticed was that the advice on the older child setting is not to brace the supporting bar against the floor as you would for the setting for smaller children but in the car we have (Hyundai ix35) we noticed that it still touched the floor regardless.

    3. How did you find the 360° rotation function of the seat?

    We found this extremely easy to use and very helpful when getting my son in and out of the car. We’ve not been fortunate enough to have a car seat that rotates like this before but it’s been a game-changer when getting him in and out of the car.

    My son can climb into the chair himself now so I wasn’t sure it would be much use for a child of his age but he has still enjoyed twizzling around on it. It also allows him to be in the right position to slide out of the car if we’re in a narrow space rather than having to get out side-on, therefore needing the door wider and more chance of bumping someone’s car or a wall with the door. 


    4. How comfortable do you think your baby/child found the Motion All Size 360 car seat?

    My son has mentioned quite a few times how comfortable he finds the seat. He said that it is more comfortable than his previous car seat and he’s also been enjoying that it’s higher up so he can see a bit more on our car journeys.

    5. Would you recommend the Silver Cross Motion All Size 360 car seat to other parents and carers? 

    Yes! We’ve been really impressed with our experience so far. Silver Cross is obviously a trusted brand and this car seat has not disappointed. We love the idea that it would work from baby to the point where a car seat was no longer required and wish that we’d had something like this for when our children were babies as it would have saved us a lot of time researching and the cost of multiple seats. We’d absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a car seat and in terms of quality, safety, aesthetics and value for money it ticks every box. My son has been thrilled with it and his little sister has her eye on it too.
