Even though our Child Passenger Safety Week celebration is now officially over, it doesn’t mean that car seat safety isn’t at the top of our list 365 days a year. We don’t need a special week to talk about car seats. It’s what we do at Baby Gizmo, right?!? Talk about baby gear!
The Maxi-Cosi Prezi Infant Car Seat is a new car seat for infant 4 – 30 lbs (and up to 29″) that sports some great safety protection and a great modern look that we think you need to know about.
Our Favorite Feature:
Sure, we love convenience features and a comfortable ride for baby but we are most concerned with safety when it comes to car seats.
The Prezi was designed with advanced side impact protection featuring its new G-CEll HX and Air Protect. The new G-Cell is an advance rebounding foam technology that mitigates first impact energy while the Air Protect protects your baby’s head by releasing a precise amount of air to dispel remaining crash forces.
If that isn’t enough safety for you, the Prezi also features a 5-position adjustable base with built in Rebound Control. The rebound bar keeps the car seat stable in a car crash and reduces the distance it will rotate forward to prevent your baby’s head from slamming into the back of the vehicle seat.
No Re-Thread Harness: The no re-thread harness is brilliant! It makes adjusting the harness height to accommodate your growing baby easy-peasy without having to undo and thread the harness through new slots each time.
EZ Out Harness: This is a first of its kind (that we’ve seen!) in an infant car seat. Instead of digging out the straps from under the baby’s bum, the semi-stiff shoulder harnesses stay put. Don’t worry though because the harness is still padded and comfy for baby.
Front Adjustment on Harness: Adjusting the tightness of the harness with a button in the front of the seat between the baby’s legs is pretty much a standard on most infant car seats but we still think it is worth mentioning.
European Canopy: The canopy is something that might take a bit to get used to just because it is a different style. Instead of those stiff canopies that never seem to stay up or down or get in the way, the Prezi features a European-type canopy that consists of fabric that stretches and attaches to the handle to stay in place. If you don’t need the canopy, we love that it stores away and out of sight.
Accessories: Yep, it comes with a couple accessories that you don’t have to buy extra. Love that! Bug Net and Weather Shield come with the seat compliments of Maxi Cosi.
Stroller Compatible: If travel systems are your thing, the Prezi is compatible with Maxi Cosi and Quinny strollers!
Fun, Bold Colors: You know Maxi-Cosi and Quinny love their bold colors, so you can’t be surprised at the fun options on the Prezi. You have these 6 colors to choose from: Envious Red, Passionate Pink, Delighted Natural, Courageous Green, Reliant Blue and Devoted Black
Price: The price is less of a convenience at $289 but sometimes you just have to pay for safety and convenience features and a cool modern look.
