New car seats from Joie!


The Joie Tilt has been on the market for quite some time, but it was sold as a rear facing 0+ seat (up to 13KG).

Now, you can use the Joie Tilt rear facing until the seat is fully outgrown at 18KG!

Hight wise it is outgrown the same as any infant car seat due to the recline, which is when the top of the head reaches the top of the shell. šŸ™‚

Atm. there isn’t any stock of the new seats (like with the Joie), but a phone call to one of the retailers stocking them should let you in on when they are expecting new deliveries. The new stock is then most likely the new seats, and as with the Joie Stages, the box will be clearly marked as Rear Facing to 18kg! šŸ™‚

Where to buy:


  • RRP Ā£100

Note that some of these retailers have not updated their info on the website, you might even meet someone on the floor stating they had no idea. This is too common, but rest assured! It is RF to 18KG now, just have a look on Joie’s own page here:Ā


SteadiNow for the new launches in the Joie series!

Joie Steadi is bound to hit the stores any day now!Ā 
It is similar to the Stages, but with a belt path more similar to that of the Tilt. šŸ™‚

This is another Birth to 18KG rear facing seat! It seams Joie has become our lifesaver and lifeline in the world of cheap ERF seats!! I couldn’t be happier even if I tried! haha

The RRP is said to be approx Ā£130, but as it’s not out yet nothing is set in stone. Stay tuned!

The fact that Joie is releasing all these new seats rear facing to 18KG for under Ā£150 is going to save lives. I am so happy that we finally have a cheap market available for those families that don’t have much to come by and would therefore have to buy a crappy FF seat.

Remember; Rear Facing is Always safer then Forward Facing, even if the seat is only Ā£100!!! šŸ™‚

Joie Anchor

Joie Anchor is the name of Joie’s first ERF ISOFIX car seat!

The seat is a base plus seat system, so takes the Joie Gem (0+) as well as Anchor (0+/1).

The seat has a rebound bar for rear facing. By having this the seat can sit up to create a gap between the vehicle seat and car seat.


It’s due to release in Jan 2014 exclusive to Mothercare!

Prices are not confirmed but it’s thought to be around Ā£100-Ā£120 for the base and around Ā£150-Ā£180 for the Anchor seat itself.

So there we have them! Joie is really trying to make Rear Facing available for everyone, and they are doing a massively good job with it! I am also happy to see that they are in fact throwing the word out there about ERF and that Rear Facing is the safest option for your child!! šŸ˜€

/3 cheers for Joiebaby! šŸ™‚

Follow ERF Misson on Facebook for more updates as we get nearer to release.

Thank you to Rear Facing – The Way Forward for letting me use the photos!! šŸ™‚ x

  1. Thank you for this, I was going to buy the stages, but it couldn’t be delivered in time for our holiday and I thought the tilt was only rf up to 13kg it states on the websites!

  2. hi! im at the stage where he needs to go into group 1…I have found halford doing the joie rearfacing up to age 4 for Ā£129, yet seeing all the others are between Ā£200-300 im worried I will be buying a not so safe model, I will have to buy 2 of which ever seat so I want to be buying the chapest but not at the cost of my childs safety…so my question is, whats the difference? is it just brand, or is it something more substantial?
    any tips would be hugely appreciated!

    • Hi Helen! šŸ™‚

      The Joie seats (like some others around the same price range) are very nice seats and in the affordable sector making it possible for families who need several seats for example or who needs an ‘extra’ seat for another car, able to still rear face for as long as possible. šŸ™‚
      Joie has their own test rig, so their seats are not only tested by the normal standard testing and approved, they have also done their own testing which is really good.
      The Joie stages for example is actually steel reinforced, unlike a lot of other cheap seats. šŸ™‚

      Now it is true that in car seats you get what you pay for and on our market it is true that some seats do cost quite a bit, but some of these seats have also undergone one of the strictest car seat test in the world called the PLUS test. This test measures the load on the child’s neck in a collision, and is the only test that does this. No forward facing garden car seat can pass this test as the load on the neck is far too high.
      I hope this answers your question and is a help. Sadly I don’t yet have internet so I can’t give you more links on the subject until Tuesday. But please let me know if there is anything else I can help with. šŸ™‚

  3. I don’t know if you know this but the joie stages is actually down as a “don’t buy” car seat by Which as it failed rear facing safety tests which is a shame as it was a really affordable way to keep my son rearward facing

    • Hello Vicki. šŸ™‚
      The Joie Stages did actually *not* fail any form of rear facing safety tests. šŸ™‚
      It had a very good frontal collision test and an average side impact collision test result. šŸ™‚

      Which? is a consumer testing magazine that does not score safety and comfort separately. So the “Don’t Buy” was not down to safety, but comfort. If you read the crash test data of the seat, you will see that it did very well. šŸ™‚

  4. I’ve got a Vauxhall Corsa D 2010 reg 5 door. Would a joie stages fit in the corsa. I’m conscious of the size and whether the seat belt is long enough. None in stock near my end so cannot try fitting it in the car. Help would be appreciated. Has anyone had any issues with the stages in a corsa.

    Does anyone think a steadi is a better option to the stages as its not as wide. I’ve seen the steadi go down to Ā£90 in boots.

    Help would be appreciated.

    • Hi. šŸ™‚
      A good rule of thumb is that if you can fit an infant car seat in using seat belt without problems then the Stages will fit.
      The Steadi is also a good seat. It uses a little less belt then the Stages. šŸ™‚

      • I think that the Stages is a better choice as it also turns into a high back booster using seat belt from 18-25kg, so you do get a from birht seat that can be used all the way up to around 6/7 years old depending on weight and hight. šŸ™‚
