Bebylux Alexa Group 123 car seat (Lusso Bianca) Review

Tested by MB gear expert Heidi Scrimgeour and her daughter, Alba.

The Alexa was a dream to install and the instructions are faultless ndash; clear, concise and with helpful illustrations that are easy to follow. TWINFIX anchors just click into the ISOFIX anchor points in your vehicle and then you hook the top tether into place. It minimises seat rotation and and slows forward movement in the event of an impact, and makes the seat feel very sturdy and secure.

The beauty of this type of car seat is how long its going to last. But Ill be honest: Ive never been convinced that any car seat could withstand a decade at the hands of my kids. Between spilled drinks, sand from beach and biscuit crumbs wedged into every nook and cranny, any car seat we own tends to look like its been in use for a decade after merely days.

The Alexa, however, has been in my car for a fortnight now, yet still looks as new and shiny as the day it arrived. The bicast leather cover not only looks smart and stylish, it also seems to repel muck of every kind. Juice spilled on a long car journey? A baby wipe took care of that in seconds. Had that happened to our previous seat, wed have been left with an inconvenient wet patch for the rest of the journey and the hassle of removing and machine-washing the cover.

A feature I love about this seat is the clever positioning of the adjustor button (the thing you press to lengthen the shoulder straps to make removing your child from the seat easier). Its hidden away under a secret flap positioned beneath your child, which means inquisitive little fingers cant fiddle with it and dropped snacks cant interfere with the overall efficacy of the seat.

With our previous seat Ive repeatedly had to hack the remains of a snack out of the adjustor button after realising it had become stuck and stopped the car seats five point harness from working properly. I dread to think how long I had driven around under the illusion that my child was safely strapped in her seat when in fact she might as well have been perched on the parcel shelf. Thats never going to be an issue with the Alexa thanks to this clever design feature. Its these finer points of design that mark this out from the competition, in my opinion.

Another feature which impressed us is the adjustable headrest. If your babys had a growth spurt overnight, you simply adjust the headrest by pulling the handle at the top of the seat until its at the right height. It couldnt be easier.

And speaking of effortless features, the recline setting is similarly piece-of-cake like. There are four recline settings and you just pull a lever at the front of the seat to gently tip it backwards. The depth of recline suited us given that she doesnt nap for long in the car at this age. Its upright enough so as not to enrage my daughter if she wakes from a nap while were on the move ndash; shes not going to feel like a turtle stuck on its shell at a point when I cant reach her to readjust the seat, but its enough to get her chin off her chest and let her snooze in comfort.

We also love the roominess of this seat. My daughter seems cocooned and cushioned in comfort yet theres plenty of room for growth. She kept asking if her arms were properly strapped in and eventually I realised thats because shes got a much better range of movement in this seat than in our own, and feels much less squashed. Theres also really good support for her arms and elbows which our other seat doesnt have, and this makes a significant difference to how relaxed and comfortable she feels overall. She climbs into it willingly. Lets just say thats not the case with our own car seat.

Needless to say this wasnt my intention but I had to perform an emergency stop while we were testing out this seat. My daughter sometimes gets car-sick so isnt a fan of such manoeuvres but her reaction surprised me; she giggled, like it was a fun adventure rather than the heart-in-mouth moment I experienced it to be. And that says it all ndash; she clearly feels safe and well-protected.

But above all, this is a car seat for serious car lovers. If you or your partner have a four-wheeled pride and joy ndash; and especially if youve got a leather interior ndash; this is the seat for you. Dont even bother looking elsewhere. You can choose from black, white or red contrast stitching to match your upholstery.

Theres just one small problem. I now feel the need to upgrade my car to match our snazzy new car seat!

The Alexa by Bebylux is a Group 1,2,3 car seat suitable for children aged from around nine months (9kg) until around 12 years old (36kg).
