Just curious original.gif  Thought it might help someone else who is looking for a capsule or reviews on this one.

It looks very upright to me...but maybe that's just the angle of the photo LOL

Looks like it could be the 5 star safety Safety 1st Capsule. Highly unlikely it is a 'new' capsule. It is most likely a re-brand of existing capsule (with different fabrics)

I was wondering the same thing Isolabella! They look the same to me, the pram it is compatible with looks the same as the safety first pram too

As I said it will not be a 'new' capsule due to all the costs and design requirements etc under the Australian Standard so it is a change of fabrics design.

Think....

- Babylove Ezy Switch=Babylove Prelude=Cargo Hybrid

- SnS Unity= FP Capsule

- Steelcraft Strider capsule= Orion Capsule at BigW (?) don't quote me on that one but it is something like that wink.gif

I just got this capsule from Aldi this morning.  On the box it says:

Brand name            Kids Kreation
Product number       012054
Model number          One Safe

After sales support   www.igcdorel.com.au


And it looks exactly like safety 1st one safe capsule so one could assume the are the same original.gif  HTH

Does anyone know if there is any chance this capsule fits on the strider plus frame?

Long shot I think but at that price, with that safety rating definitely worth asking the question.

TIA

What price are they selling for?

#8 ~Mo+Moosh~

Posted 09 November 2011 - 09:39 AM

$149

yeah, pretty sure it is the Safety 1st - normally $300

and PLEASE do not install it like they have in the Aldi catalog pic.

Aside from the fact that they've not used the top tether in the catalogue picture (for obvious reasons), what is wrong with the installation?

I think the seat belt is threaded through from wrong side, instead of from the outside of the restraint??

It looks more like they have put the lap part of the seatbelt through but not the sash part, rather than threading the belt through from the wrong side...looks a bit strange to me, but maybe it's ment to be installed like that?

#13 fillesetjumeaux

Posted 11 November 2011 - 09:52 PM

That's what I thought initially, but you can't thread only one part of the belt through, can you?

Yeah, it looks like you can on that seat, the bit where the lap part of the belt threads through looks like it's got a split in it that you could slip the seatbelt through...no idea if I'm right though, it's hard to tell from that pic and for once there was not a single one that had been opened when I was in Aldi the other day so I couldn't look at one LOL

I got one, sooooooooooo happy with it! Amazing 5 stat capsule for the price. So light weight, easy to install, and the sunhood is awesome!

As for the installation, it can be installed the way it is in the picture, With only the lap part threaded through. It has an awesome belt path that keeps the seatbelt tight without needing a gated buckle or other locking system!

Joddle, if you could share pictures that would be great.

Do I have to upload them to a facebook album or photobucket or something before I can put them here? I'd rather just upload straight to here.

#21 Jenferal

Posted 18 November 2011 - 12:45 PM

think you need to do the Photobucket thing...don't ask me HOW though lol.

Does anyone have the pram that goes with it? They have them on sale again next week at aldi and I was thinking about getting the capsule and the pram. Such an awesome price. I know the capsule is definitely a rebrand of the safety first one but I am not sure about the pram. Thank you for any help!!!

hi all,

we purchased the pram & capsule from Aldi for $99 each.

this is the pram:
http://www.igcdorel.com.au/cms-nursery/str...a-stroller.phps

and as other's have pointed out, this is the capsule:
http://www.igcdorel.com.au/cms-car-seats/i...nt-carrier.phps

now I have to admit I am new to the world of prams & capsules, and haven't quite managed to road test it with a passenger. but here are my initial impressions:

pram:
1. the pram is solid. it doesn't have a 'cheap' feel to it.
2. the instruction manual is written in relatively good English and only a small amount of assembly is required (fitting the wheels, bumper bar, capsule adapter etc)
3. for $99, I feel it is an excellent buy (although I reserve the right to change my mind once we get our passenger in it)

capsule:
1. fits onto the pram very well and comes with its own canopy
2. has nice quality fabrics
3. I feel the instruction manual is difficult to understand (although I have no idea, and will be getting the base fitted by a professional)
4. reduced from $149 to $99 - an excellent buy for something that is only used for 6 months.
5. Aldi don't seem to advertise the '5 star rating' fact (I assume that is a genuine '5 star' and not a 'best in class - el cheapo' rating. I do however have a lot of confidence in the Australian standard and am comforted to know it is rebranded and not a super-cheap import.

and that's that. I'd recommended it purely on the basis that both items are at a really fantastic price and Aldi have a 60 day no questions return guarantee.

also, we gave ourselves a pat on the back in selecting what pram we wanted in less than 60 seconds and not needing to step foot in a baby store.

oh, and I just discovered the capsule doubles as a rocker, which I think is pretty cool.

My local Aldi had them on clearance today - both capsules & prams reduced to $69.99.  I wasnt going to get pram to go with capsule but at that price I couldnt not!  

Pram seems ok but doesnt really 'fully recline' like it says although they do supply a head snuggler with it.  I guess for the price it will be handy for those quick times you need to attach your capsule to a pram.  However I think I will still use my other pram for outings.
