A Review + “B”-Movie // Cosatto Hug (ISOFIX) Car Seat in the Cuddle Monster 2 Print

cosatto cuddle monster 2 hug review

This month sees the release of the brand new Cosatto Group 123 Hug Car Seat in the awesome Cuddle Monster 2 print. The new design comes with a 5-point plus™ anti-escape system, which keeps your little monsters safely and lovingly embraced throughout your journey; wriggling out of straps on the motorway is now a thing of the past!

Watch our story of the little monster who never stayed still below:

The Hug is a forward facing car seat that covers groups 1, 2 and 3 (approximately 9kg-36kg, or 9 months until 12 years), which means it’s an essential safety product that lasts – and there is no need to buy any separate seats for your developing monster!

We’re just about to move Busby-Monster up to the Group 2 phase of the Hug*, which uses a seat belt, but even in the Group 2 setting, the seat is much more safe than a booster seat, as the Hug has extra-cushioned Side Impact Protection!

*the video and photos show Busby in the Group 1 phase of the Hug seat.

We are proud owners of the ISOFIX version of the Hug car seat, which means it’s extra safe with the super easy click-and-go magic of ISOFIX. The seat even uses ISOFIX in the group 2 and 3 phases, making it even more safe. It was so easy to fit; Nick had to remove the headrest from the seat in our car, but other than that it was plain sailing and a swift installation.

Research shows that more than 70% of children wriggle out of their car seat harnesses, which is quite scary! The 5-point plus™ anti-escape system is rather fantastic, and really is Houdini-proof; in tests, 9 out of 10 little monsters could not wriggle out of their Cosatto Anti-Escape System! Busby-Monster is definitely not getting out of this harness any time soon, and I’m quite sad it doesn’t extend to the group 2 phase of the car seat, as it would be useful to stop curious hands on seatbelt clips! I think we’ll have to get another Hug for our littlest monster… who is well-known for escaping from various harnesses and seats already… and he’s not even 9 months old! Eek!

It might be an anti-escape system, but Busby-Monster always looks super comfy in her Hug seat… And it’s even passed the snooze-test! It’s a rather luxurious seat, with leatherette upholstery, tons of cushioning, wonderfully soft fabrics, pop-off easy-clean covers (very important!), and even more cuddly features including comfy armrests and pads for tummy and chest. It truly is a Hug in a seat!

As one would expect with Cosatto, the Hug is wonderfully and vibrantly designed. The Cuddle Monster 2 print is unisex, bold and brilliant – and ideal for our little monster! The seat pads and liner also flip over for when Busby-Monster is older and wants a plainer seat… It truly grows with your monster!

I would definitely recommend the seat to all parents looking for a super safe, stylish and lasting car seat for their little monster.

    It looks so good and the colours are so vibrant. I saw a little tour of it and it looks so safe. Z wriggled out once whilst we were on the motorway and it was a huge panic. Thankfully he’s never done it since!

    I love Cosatto products they are so eye catching and well made ( we have a pushchair). This looks like such a great car seat, I think I need to invest in something like this for my little man xx

    Busby is looking so cute! I can’t believe she’s in a grown up car seat already!
