Britax Smile Review

Loves: A good all-rounder with a stylish appearance and a huge shopping basket!

Seat: The seat unit can be used from six months (use the carrycot from newborn) and is easily attached to the chassis using the Click n Go receivers. It can face the front or the rear and the seat back reclines through three positions by suing a lever located on the rear of the seat back. A generous size, it is well padded and you could add a liner to keep it cleaner for longer, though you can wipe it clean. Inside is a secure five point harness that grows with your baby and has good pads for the chest and crotch. The hood is a very generous size (and comes with a raincover) and has wipe-clean fabric; plus there is a ventilation panel that can opened when it’s warm. There’s a viewing window on the top of the hood so that you can keep an eye on your baby, which closes using a magnetic closure. The bumper bar can be opened from either side to make getting your baby in and out of the seat easy and the footrest can be raised and lowered using buttons on either side.

There is a carrycot to use from newborn and it is a very generous sized one, with a generous hood that includes a mesh panel to unzip for ventilation in warmer weather and an apron to protect from the elements, plus a raincover. It has a well padded mattress and washable liner and for safety it has a waist band and you can also add a harness if you require. It can be placed on the chassis with the same Click n Go receivers that are on the pushchair seat.

Chassis: The chassis feels sturdy and has a good, functional shape with good all-round suspension and is very easy to push and to steer. It is painted with a nice shiny aluminium finish and the light coloured metal matches that on the seat unit, plus there are black accents for wheels and connectors. The handle bar is adjustable and has a firm foam handle. Adjustment is from the button on the centre of the handle bar. The brake is a push-on, push-off version with a coloured indicator – green for locked and red when it’s unlocked. Underneath is a massive shopping basket that can take up to 7kg of luggage – great for shopping or for days out when you want to take lots with you. There are reflective strips on it too, so that you and baby are visible in dim lighting.

Wheels: The front wheels can swivel through 360 degrees or can be locked in place and are made from sturdy puncture-proof EVA plastic. The rear wheels are larger, rubber tyres which are air-filled for a smooth journey.

Extras: Add a carrycot, mosquito net, three different kinds of cosytoes and a changing bag.
