Joovy Toy Car Seat - It's the Real Deal


Disclaimer: I'm a Joovy Blogger and received products for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.


We just celebrated National Car Seat Safety Month in September. If it's one thing that mommy and I really advocate for is the safety of all children when traveling. It's always important to buckle up. A car seat is something that is needed before you can leave the hospital with your baby. While there are lots of different models available on the market right now, the most important things that you want to look for when choosing one for your baby. Here are just a few of our tips:

  • Ease of use - You don't want to be fighting putting a car seat in and out of your car, especially in the middle of winter. 
  • Five Point Safety Harness - These are a lot safer for your babies use and you'll feel safer too.
  • Car Seat Base - This makes it easy to get in and out of your car. Make sure that it is installed properly in your car. If you need help there are car seat safety check centers that can help you.
  • Easy to Clean and Comfortable - Look for one that is easy to clean. There's nothing worse than having a car seat that is dirty with your little one. Lots of car seats now have covers that can be easily removed. Also look for a seat that is padded and comfortable for your little one. After all this is going to be their place to sit for a few years.

Now one good way to encourage your little one to love their own car seat is to introduce them to one for play. I received the Joovy Toy Car Seat for my dolls and I couldn't have been more delighted. If you're wondering, it is also available in blue so little boys can also get in on the educational fun.

You may be saying, "So how is this the real deal, isn't it just a toy?". While that may be true, it's more than just a toy. Just like all Joovy products, this is very well made. Once again Joovy didn't skimp on the materials to make this product. This is really heavy duty stuff and not the cheap plastic that most toys are made of. This was built to last!



  • This comes complete with a real 5-point harness for your dolls 12" to 20". Love the fact that it is adjustable because it teaches me how to my chest clip should be positioned correctly.
  • Has a two position handle grip which is ergonomically designed for small hands. Just look at me holding Minnie Mouse in her car seat above with my tiny hands. I'm only 2 years of age and it was super easy for me to hold. 
  • The base is removable and this can actually be installed in your car using your seat belts, or you can use the included LATCH that comes with the toy car seat. When the base is removed the toy car seat becomes a rocker that your little one can use to rock his/her toy doll or stuffed animal. 
  • Just like your actual car seat, the fabric on this toy car seat can be removed and washed as well for easy clean up. 


Now one of the great thing about the Joovy Toy Car Seat is that it is fully compatible with the Joovy Toy Caboose Stroller. You can read my full review of the stroller which I shared with you. It makes it the best travel system available on the market for your little one's stuffed animal or doll. Just like the real deal!


I really enjoyed not only pushing my travel system around but I also enjoyed walking around with the car seat just like a mommy would with their baby. Minnie enjoyed the ride and I enjoyed walking with her. Mommy wanted to help and I said "I can do it myself". No help needed!


Your little one is going to thoroughly enjoy the Joovy Toy Car Seat and so will you. You will both love the realistic feel to it and now your little ones will enjoy the fact that not only is it important to buckle up but that it looks totally cool doing it too. I would also recommend getting the Toy Caboose as well and complete the system. You won't regret it. And that's why the Joovy Toy Car Seat gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!

  1. This is seriously so cute! I love the travel system but I think the fact that the car set has the 5 point harness is really smart. We need to teach our children the correct way to secure their dolls just like we need to know the correct way to secure our children. It is something that children should be taught early on. I think my niece Madison would truly love this!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I read the review for the stroller and this is perfect. The entire travel system! What a great way for kids to pretend and to learn responsibility. Joovy makes great products for real babies so I'm not surprised that the toys are just as good. Thank you. Now I think that I may have to get the entire system now.

  3. She looks so cute carrying that around. I bet she was so excited to carry her dollys around like real babies :)

  4. Oh my gosh! What?! My daughter is obsessed with buckling her own carseat straps before I get to her side of the van to get her in. She would LOVE her own doll carseat that really worked!

  5. Wow, this is adorable! And she looks so happy carrying it around with her Minnie Mouse doll. I wish I had these kind of things when I was growing up, it would have made all those long car rides so much more funner...

  6. That is a coolest thing! And Madison, you are getting so tall! Soon you will need a bigger car seat yourself!

  7. You just gave me a GREAT idea for Christmas Gifts. I have 2 Granddaughters and I am pretty sure they are each getting this from Joovy.

  8. How adorable! I love how "real" it looks. Gotta say that I am loving those shoes too ;)

  9. Ha Ha !!! That is so darn cute!! We bought our 6 year old niece her own bike dolly seat, it fits on the back of her bike so she can ride her around, she loves it! I know she would think this was awesome! Definitely going to add to the Christmas shopping list.

  10. Omg if only I had nieces. It looks so REAL. I love how proud she looks of her baby stroller.

  11. How adorable! I just recently discovered Joovy and their products seem great! I think I'm definitely going to have to get something like this for my daughter since we are having a new baby in January and she already loves to mimic everything I'm doing in my pregnancy. I'm assuming she will have her own baby to buckle up when I buckle ours! ;)

  12. precious!! she looks so happy to have her little seat! ;)

  13. I love Joovy products. I think my nieces would love to get this set for their babies. They always try to pretend to be me with my baby so they can have the same stroller.

  15. What a great idea! Those pictures are absolutely adorable, and my daughter would have loved that when she was little.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh my gosh that is so cute and what a lovely way to teach safety around car seats as well. x

  17. Absolutely adorable. This would be a great Christmas gift for my girls since they have a new sister arriving in November. That way they could tote their dolls around just like mom.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My daughter would have absolutely loved this when she was little. She always wanted to push her dolls and toys in my son's stroller. Even when we were using it for my son!

  19. t looks like the real thing! This is certainly different and I can see a little one getting many hours of playtime with it. A great tool to enhance pretend play. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow! I have never seen such an authentic toy car seat!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your daughter is so pretty. I love that she is so serious of taking care of her stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Here's another selling point to the product - it's manageable! I think most car seats would be unwieldly or heavy/large enough that a child can't carry them around. Awesome that your little girl could do so, and seemed to enjoy using it! ;)

  27. This is so cute! My mom used to let me put my baby dolls in my old carseat. Until one time we left the doll in the car in the seat in Florida and some one freaked out on her thinking it was a real baby. That was the end of that. Haha Minnie is safer.

  28. This is so cute, I bet my daughter would still love this and she's 8, she loves dolls.

  33. This is such a lovely little doll accessory, fab that it teaches little ones about car safety too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think its super cute that they tend to teach kids to actually realized the importance of security as well. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is seriously cute! Although my two year old would most likely insist on ditching her brother all the time just so she could put this car seat & her favorite doll in the Jeep when we run to the store.

    ReplyDelete
  36. WOW thats super realistic looking! To adorable! So is your little girl!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is so cute and it looks like a real car seat! My daughters love playing with dolls and I know they'd love this car seat. They have an old car seat that's real that they use for their dolls. This one would be a lot lighter and easier for them to use.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is such a good idea! My nephews are in a stage right now where they hate being in their car seats. I think a toy like this (maybe in blue) would help them realize that car seats are not bad. I think it would also help explain why they have to wear them, for safety reasons.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It looks like a great car seat! This is a great post, and I love how you said, "Minnie enjoyed the ride."

    ReplyDelete
