Joie i-Gemm 0+ Car Seat Review

Summary

The Joie i-Gemm 0+ Car Seat is a group 0+, infant car seat that is suitable for use from birth to 13kg. I-Size compliant, when paired with the Joie i-Base Advance, the car seat is safe, well-cushioned and ready to go straight out of the box.

Features

All fabrics are very soft and plush, with the included infant insert keeping it extra cosy for smaller babies. Inside the seat is a 3-point harness with buckle and shoulder pads for added comfort.

The headrest and harness simultaneously adjust with one another, which means no more harness re-threading as your baby grows. The car seat can take a child from birth to 13kg or 85cm in height, whichever your child reaches first.

The car seat also features a very large sun canopy with extra zip-out ‘ventilation panel’. For an infant car seat this canopy is one of the largest we have seen and we found it to be perfect when travelling the car to provide full protection.

The base of the i-Gemm is curved too, letting your baby rock or relax when put down. There is also a soft grip carry handle that makes getting around that little bit more comfortable.

Another great feature of the Joie i-Gemm 0+ Car Seat is its airline certification, allowing you to use it at home and on the plane! Not all brands have this certification and it’s definitely a feature that we love.

 

Installation

When installed on the Joie i-Base Advance, the Joie i-Gemm 0+ Car Seat becomes i-Size compliant. This means that the car seat has been tested to the newest safety standard when on the base and is the safest it could possibly be.

 

The base first needs to be clicked into the ISOfix points in your vehicle and the support leg extended and you’re ready to attach your car seat. In one movement, the car seat clicks on and you’re ready to go.

 

 

The car seat can also be installed using an in vehicle seat belt if you don’t have ISOfix points. Just pull the shoulder belt around the back of the car seat and the lap belt across the front, and click into place. There are blue seat belt guides to ensure this is done correctly.

Protection

Alongside the i-Size safety rating (when paired with the i-Base Advance), the car seat also has side impact protection. The ‘Tri-Protect’ headrest with ‘Intelli-Fit’ foam provides tough side impact protection.

Travel System

The Joie i-Gemm 0+ Car Seat can be used both on and off of a buggy with the use of car seat adaptors. It is compatible with most Joie stroller and other brand pushchairs, and makes it very easy to get going straight out of the car.

Accessories

The perfect accompaniment to the Joie i-Gemm 0+ Car Seat is the Joie i-Base Advance. Not only does it make getting in and out of the car easier, but it also creates an i-Size certified travelling solution.
