Doona - JB Gill, Samia Ghadie, Billi Mucklow, Sam Bailey

An innovative take on the travel system, the Doona is actually a car seat that turns into a buggy. The Doona is an award-winning Group 0+ car seat with integrated wheels that can extend or fold away at the touch of a button.

It’s the first such hybrid car seat/stroller on the market and features safety aspects such as a double wall structure and anti-rebound handle.

Our MFM reviewer says the Doona is an "easy alternative to a travel system, perfect for out-and-about parents or those short on space". However, the travel system has a limited lifespan as it will only last about 6-9 months. And the Doona can only be used as a pushchair for short trips as it's a car seat first, not a buggy.

You can buy the Doona from Toys R Us, Argos, Halfords or Smyths

Orbit Baby G3 Toddler Seat - Beyoncé Knowles

Beyoncé has been an Orbit Baby fan since she welcomed her daughter Blue Ivy to the world back in 2012. The mother-of-one used the Orbit Baby G3 stroller and infant car seat and has now moved on to the toddler seat with her 3-year-old.

The rear and forward-facing car seat is pretty unique as it's a Group 1 that's travel system compatible. It can be used from 6 months and is rear-facing to 4 years and can then go up to 6 years forward-facing.

Sadly, this seat isn't available in the UK, but fingers crossed it'll reach our shores soon.

Cybex Sirona - Kim Kardashian

Kim and husband Kanye have used this seat for daughter North for a few years now.

This award-winning Group 0+/1 car seat has plenty of useful features – swivel function, lots of recline positions, an adjustable headrest and the front impact shield, which spreads the force of any crash when your child is forward facing.

It does have a high price tag (£375) but it's worth it when you consider it can be used for four years, but it must be used in a car with an ISOFIX system.

Check out the full review of the Cybex Sirona.


Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air + - David Beckham

David and Victoria Beckham chose the forward-facing Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air + car seat for 4-year-old Harper Seven.
