Maxi Cosi Pebble Baby Car Seat

Maxi cosi pebble baby car seat on chassisThe Maxi Cosi Pebble Baby Car Seat is sleek and stylish, easy to use and above all else, safe. The Maxi Cosi pebble can be secured using your car seat belt, the Family fix ISOFIX base or the Maxi Cosi Easy Base 2. If you have the ISOFIX attachment in your car then I would recommend using this option as it prevents the car seat from being secured incorrectly (as does the Easy Base 2 if you don’t have ISOFIX attachments). Having a base in place makes life so much easier when getting your baby in and out of the car as well as providing great peace of mind, the Maxi Cosi pebble has both visual and audible indicators to let you know your car seat is properly fitted.

It offers side impact protection as you would expect, is suitable for babies 0-13kg and is compatible with any Quinnny or Maxi Cosi frame. The car seat weighs 4.1kg so is slightly heavier than the Maxi Cosi Cabriofix but does have some slight improvements:

I love the fact that the harness is automatically stored out of the way when you press the release button, this helps when putting your baby in, I’ve been in the following scenario too many times:

Sleeping baby, bag on shoulder, raining, someone parked too close to you… One less thing to worry about is using your

spare hand to try and move the harness out of the way.

If of course you are lucky enough to be out and about on a warmer day, you can simply pull the integral sun shade out and attach it to the carry handle, this can also be neatly stored away under the top rim of the seat. Maxi Cosi really do seem to have thought of everything…

As you adjust the harness, the head hugger also adjusts as well, this maximises safety and comfort and again is very easy to do.maxi cosi pebble side view The car seat cover can be removed and good news for all; it is machine washable! The Maxi Cosi Pebble is slightly more expensive than its predecessor, the Cabriofix, but if you are willing to incur an additional cost for additional ease of use, you will not be disappointed! The Pebble is available with free super saver delivery from amazon.

Maxi Cosi Cabriofix baby car seat black reflectionThe Maxi Cosi Cabriofix baby car seat is one of the most popular and highly recommended rearward facing car seats. It’s safe, comfortable, easy to use, easy to clean and compatible with an isofix base or a seat-belt base. It can also be easily secured using your car seat belt. Having 3 options on how to secure it safely in your car means you don’t have to have a car that supports the ISOFIX system to benefit from the advantages of using a base; having a base in place makes it very easy to put it into your car and also get it out again, you simply click the car seat into place and check for the green indicators. When removing it, simply pull the lever and you are good to go.

The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix is a group 0+ rearward facing car seat, suitable from birth up to 13kg and is approved according to the latest European standard ECE R44/04.

It offers side impact protection, is lightweight (as far as car seats go- 3.5kg), is easy to carry and also has a hidden storage compartment at the back. You may want to keep a spare dummy, a pack of wipes or even squeeze in a universal rain cover. (please note: this is where you will find the instructions).

The Cabriofix is extremely snug and cosy and comes with a baby ‘head hugger’ and pillow which can be removed when your little one outgrows it. If you choose to use the family fix (ISOFIX) base, you will be able to keep your baby rearward facing for a longer period of time as it offers the option of an extra upward position resulting in more legroom.

Ease of use is important to all parents and Maxi Cosi have really focused on this feature without compromising safety; the cabriofix is compatible with all Maxi Cosi and Quinny pushchairs and buggies so you aren’t restricted to buying a complete all in one travel system; choose your favourite Quinny or Maxi Cosi frame and you can rest assured this will fit. The harness hooks on either side of the car seat also make it so much easier when putting your baby in.

The Cabriofix comes in a variety of colours including total black, black reflection and intense red.

Good Points

  • Handle has 3 positions and is easy to adjust.
  • Easy to carry
  • Easy to use
  • Comes with a built in sunshade
  • Green visual indicators to ensure seat is properly fitted to base
  • Harness hooks to keep them out of the way when putting your baby in

Negative Points

  • Integral sunshade located at the back can be a bit fiddly to tuck back in when not in use.
  • Covers are not as easy to remove as they could be and are hand wash only

Who is the Cabriofix good for?

The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix meets the criteria of every parent looking to buy a rearward facing car seat suitable from birth. Not only does it have a fantastic safety rating but can be used with isofix, a seat belt base or your car seat belt. The fact that it is compatible with every Quinny or Maxi Cosi frame is also a winner for me. A good car seat is stylish, comfortable, easy to use and of course, safe. The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix is all of the above and like many thousands of other parents, you will not be disappointed.
