“My Mum bought the Silvercross 3D pram system for me...”

Written on: 12/08/2013

My Mum bought the Silvercross 3D pram system for me and car seat after encouraging me to choose a brand that she felt was reliable and had been around for a reassuringly long time. Although the pram itself is adequate the car seat is so irritating to use that you end up with a crying baby and Mother by the time you have got it in and out of your car. The way the seat belt has to be applied is not the same as if you follow the written instructions or watch the clip on Youtube. The seat belt in… Read Full Review

“Seat is outgrown sooner than advertised”

Written on: 23/06/2013 by annis51 (1 review written)

We bought this seat to match the Linear Freeway pram we bought for our eldest grandson after his other pushchair broke. The pram is lovely but the seat only takes a 13kg baby if the baby is very heavy ie fat. Our second grandson was premature & we had to buy a seat for a 4lb 8oz baby so I trusted Silver Cross that the seat would last until the baby was heavy enough to face forwards as advertised. He is 13 months now but only 18lbs in weight. He is quite tall but is on the 9th centile for weight… Read Full Review

“Too fiddly to fit in the car”

Written on: 03/11/2011 by vickiet (1 review written)

I bought the car seat as part of a travel system with the linear freeway. The car seat hardly fits in the cars, we have a vectra and a nissan tino. The seat belt hardly goes around and i have to manhandle the car seat to get the belt round, then arrange back in the horizontal postion, which makes me concerned about safety. The hood impedes getting the belt into the hook and sometimes I have to remove the hood to get it to fit. It can sometimes take me ten minutes to be happy with position… Read Full Review

Annis51's Response to vickiet's Review

Written on: 22/06/2013

I agree. I bought this seat to match our Linear Freeway which is a lovely pram. We have a Discovery and it is a tight fit to get it fixed in the car especially after a caesarian. Very comfy for a tiny baby. HOWEVER BE WARNED this seat will not last until your baby is ready to face forwards unless your baby is very heavy . The shoulder straps do not go high enough. There are only two positions not three. I am off to Mothercare to buy another rearward facing seat for a 18lb baby whose head is nowhere near the top of the seat. Car seats are a nightmare.

Annis51's Response to vickiet's Review

Written on: 22/06/2013

We bought this seat to go in a Seat Ibiza and it took a while to get it in first time for my grandson. My son-in-law struggled so I did it. You have to reel out the whole belt and slip it under the hook for the shoulder bit of the belt then click it into the buckle then under the slots for the lap bit of the belt. This works. You must not let go of the belt so a one handed job. I can do it in 20 seconds now. HOWEVER our baby has grown out of this seat but is only 18lbs. So I've got to buy another one. I'm so cross.

Written on: 03/05/2011 by MMEEHAN (1 review written)

I bought a silvercross Linear Freeway from Mothercare and matching ventura car seat. I was not made aware of the fact there was a chance the car seat would not strap into my car correctly. After all of my order had arrived everything looked lovely and I was very pleased. However, when my husband tried out the car seat in my car which is a peugeot 308 he could not get it secured correctly and was not happy about it. In the end we decided to take it back to mothercare as it had not been… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2010

Good sturdy car seat, our son has always looked very comfortable in it too, however it can be fiddly to secure as our car is very small, and we don't have much room to play with. After a few go's I did get the hang of it, but it does take time and after a trip to the shops can be a real pain to get it all secure again.

The other downside is that it simply isn't going to last as long as I was told it would. My son is just over 4 months and is always on the longest shoulder strap setting. We… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2010

From a dad's point of view, who's job it is to get this thing in and out of the car, it's a terrible design. It's far to fiddly to secure and takes far too long. I'm off to buy an IsoFIX. I personally don't have twenty minutes to spare every time I want to put the car seat in and out and I have a bloody big car with loads of room and it's still a pain… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2010

Best infant car seat we could find, tried a few but this outranked the others, had a lot of trouble finding one which would fit the cars, originally ordered Mamas & Papas Primo Viaggio after being assured by Mamas & Papas that it would definitely fit our car, when it arrived, it didn't. Wouldn't want a base personally as easy to fit. Great car seat, using again with baby number 2!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2010

Good strong car seat and easy to install in the car. Agree a base would be better but only use for 9 months so not a huge problem. I bought with the travel system and it was a great 'pushchair' when my daughter was wanting to see out of the pram, yet was too small for the pushchair it converted into. My only complaint there is that the apron for the car seat can be kicked off too easily!… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2009

Silver Cross Ventura Infant Car Seat is fantastic. looks lovely. You can tell its silver cross from the quality of the product. Just like to agree with the views above a bracket for the car would make it so much easier. This is very big and only just manages to fit the seat belt around the seat. As i don't put baby in the front… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2009 by charlie198621 (1 review written)

My baby girl sleeps comfortably in this Silver Cross Ventura Infant Car Seat, well padded, my baby was very, very small and it held her well.fits beautifully onto chassis and is very easy to carry. I found it difficult to fit in car, make sure try out in car before you buy, no base to go with it, maybe something silver cross should think about doing would make life alot easier. Overall my best purchase… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2008

I feel the Silver Cross Ventura Infant Car Seat is very heavy and big compared to other models, fiddly belts. Baby's head never really seemed secure but this may be because my baby grew out of it very quickly by the age of 5 1/2 months.

Bought with the pram travel system, which unfortunately we've had problems with too. Bought at a discounted price as bought with pram. Did the job but in hindsight wasn't the best choice… Read Full Review
