From the manufacturer
As a parent, the big wide world can sometimes feel like one big challenge. But that’s why we’re here, because their products are built to make every day as easy for you as possible.
Choosing a car seat is a big decision and can't be left to chance. The safety of your child largely depends on the car seat being installed correctly and also that they are chosen based on the correct weight and height of your child. In most countries the law states that you must use a car seat from birth until your child reaches 135 cm in height or 12 years - whichever is reached first.
Their range of car seats has been designed and developed with parents and all seats are lightweight and extremely easy to install.
Yes, their baby products look after your little one but they are so much more than that. Each and every product has been designed with upcoming fashion trends in mind, to also say something about you. The modern colours and patterns will compliment your home decor, sporty and hard wearing car seat fabrics will fit with your car’ interior and contemporary, striking designs to make you as proud to push your stroller.
At Graco we are passionate about child safety. They know it's your number one priority, whether you are out and about in the car or at home. Graco continuously develops, designs and test products to provide safety, security and comfort. It's at the heart of everything they do.
When your little one is happy and content so are you. That’s why comfort is standard in everything they do. Graco selects durable soft fabrics and foam padding to ensure your little one is cosy and snug our strollers, car seats, travel cots and swings.
Designed for Innovation
Giving confidence to parents for over years. It all started in 1955 with the invention of the baby swing and we went on to invent the travel cot and the travel system. They have always listened to parents needs and developed insightful and family tested products to meet your changing needs as your little ones grow.

Why only 2*? To use the recline feature, the chair base must fully be in contact with the seat. This means it cannot be used with smaller temporary seats, such as those in the rear row of a Zafira. Secondly, if the seat is fitted well (e.g., with little or no movement) then the seat cannot physically recline without being removed from the car first. Basically the mechanism for reclining is not the back moving, but the front leading edge moving up and down (only a few CM). It's the same as putting a small book under the front of the seat. A very poor design on what is otherwise a very nice chair.
My problem with it, is the size. It is very substantial which in our teeny tiny Peugeot 207 means that the chair overhangs the seatbelt button and it is really difficult to click it in without losing skin from your knuckles! Think carefully if you are in the small car club.
The first thing that struck me when assembling the Graco Natilus Elite was how sturdy it both looked and felt - an immediate assurance of good protection.
Installing using the cars seat belt isn't so much difficult, but a little bit fiddly, but once you've had a few practices, it'll become very easy.Once affixed using the seat belt, the seat feels extremely sturdy. There are plenty of padded areas, the seat seems extremely snug once the child is strapped in. The recliner isn't a feature I'll use as due to the minimal amount of reclining the seat actually does, it doesn't warrant the effort. The drinks holder is a great idea as I'm sure once old enough the toddler will enjoy having their own personal cup/bottle holder and make good use of it.
I've only been using this seat for a little over a month, so apologies if this review isn't as comprehensive as it should be..... But my summary is the seat is very sturdy, appears to be very comfortable, easy to use and does what it should - offer a good level of protection.
Other then the recline my son seems to like his car seat.
The seat is well made, easy to adjust, feels secure and safe, and the drinks holder and cubby holes in the arms are very useful and really appreciated by the kids. I've tested it with both my eighteen month old (group 1 configuration) and four year old (group 2 configuration), and both children seemed comfortable and happy, and securing them into the seat was easy and straightforward.
Having a multi-stage seat is useful, not just for the extra years you'll get out of the seat, but also for the flexibility it offers if your family has multiple kids and cars. That said, the flexibility in stage adaptation results in compromises that mean this seat will not match the best in class at each stage. There is no ISO fix to keep the seat securely attached when empty (handy if you forget use the seat belt to secure the empty seat), and no padded seat belt chest strap, both of which are useful features on the group 2/3 Britax KIDFIX XP SICT. Likewise there is no top tether for extra impact stability, as available on the group 1 Britax Duo Plus.
My only other reason for not stretching to the full five stars was due to the manual, which is okay but hard to follow in places. For example, converting the seat from group 1 to 2 is quite simple and straightforward once you master it, but I have to say that the manual is not as clear as I would have liked, and contains a couple of errors and rather ambiguous diagrams. Thus a bit of trial and error is needed. It's worth watching the the YouTube video "Changing the Graco Nautilus Elite from stage 1 to stage 2" to get a quick overview before you attempt it.
Comfy, Sturdy, Sits well in a car, Easy to install, Easy in and out for your child. Over all Fantastic, Best Buy
Supposed to recline, what's the point, might as well take this feature off the description. The clipping mech not the easiest, Takes Practice!
The seat is defiantly the best in its class for the money. I would hazard to say that it is the bast over all the possible car seats on the market. However as I have not tested them all I cant really make that comparison, but in my opinion it was a smart buy. there is extra padding that makes you wish that you had one to sit in, lots of pockets and a drinks cup holder (not that my 10 month old know s what to do with these yet). The seat sits well in the car with a hard base, making it very sturdy, there is a retaining clip to keep the seatbelt taught so that the seat does not move, and the seat is easy to install and remove from the car. Of course the head rest adjusts bonus perk but not required, may be good for children with weaker spines (speculation only?). Also, the head rest moves up and down depending on the size and age of the child. The belt harness inside the seat is of good quality and I can see that from a safety stand point this is the best that is out there - (think rally car seat).
As I Said there are a couple of drawbacks: Firstly the seat is advertised as reclinable, they may as well take this feature off the description, the seat moves literally one inch in either direction making no difference what so ever, however this is off set with the comfort and padding in the seat making it not needed anyway.Read more ›
