Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Air Convertible Car Seat with TinyFit - Black
PLEASE CHOOSE A REGISTRY LIST TO ADD YOUR GIFTS TO:
The Pria 70 really gives you more bang for your buck, since its convertible design covers both the infant and toddler stages, which means one less car seat to buy! But what really sets the Maxi-Cosi apart is that it's the only convertible car seat that reclines to four different positions while your child is sitting in it. Plus, it has revolutionary side impact technology that immediately reduces side impact forces through the precise release of air (yes, really), and a TinyFit System that guarantees a better fit for tinier babies. It also boasts one-hand harness height adjustment, a one-click latch system, and a rear-facing adjustment feature that makes it easier (and faster!) to switch the car seat’s position.
Why it's a giggle pick Parents who don't need a true infant car seat that can be clicked in and out of the car will love saving a purchase with this convertible seat.See Full Details

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LSSO third times a charm I wish I would have purchased this car seat the first time. I tried and returned the Britax Boulevard 70 and the Recaro Proride before I found the Pria. The reclining feature works great for rear facing installation. It is the only one that my daughter didn't seem to be constantly leaning forward in. And she (30" tall) has much more legroom than with the others. The buckles are very secure and the side impact headrest is very substantial which makes me feel confident. My only gripe so far is that it's difficult to tighten the shoulder harnesses, I seem to have to pull really hard to get it snug. Overall this is a great seat. March 18, 2012

See what people are asking, and maybe add some answers of your own.
Q:How do adjust the harness for the tiny fit system? And how can I remove the tiny fit system once my son is too big for it? Right now the harness is so tight that I can not get him into the car seat. He is almost 17lbs
A:Tiny Fit instructions for adjusting the harness and removing the system can be found in your Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Air Convertible Car Seat Owners Manual that was included with your original purchase, and can be found in a pocket on the back or the side of the car seat.
Can't locate or find your manual? The correct manual for your car seat will vary depending on which version you own. In order for us to provide you with the correct manual, or to answer questions, you can contact MaxiCosi's Consumer Relations team at 1-800-951-4113.
Q:Does this car seat require a base?
I'd like to know that in case of an emergency when I'm not home, the nanny can use the car seat in her car as well. Is there a base that can be installed in her car to facilitate this? Or would she need to install a separate seat in her car as well?
Any recommendations would be appreciated. My son is about to outgrow our Graco Snug Ride 30 (he is only 14lbs, but already almost 28").
A:MaxiCosi's Pria 70 is a completely integrated system -- unlike your infant car seat, Pria 70's base and seat are all-in-one.
It's true that when you transition from a two-piece infant car seat to most all-in-one units you lose the "snap-in-snap-out" convenience of the infant carrier and the ability to install multiple bases in multiple cars for just a single car seat carrier.
If a convertible car seat with a base is what you're looking for, giggle's solution is Orbit Baby's Toddler Car Seat. It uses a base for rear-facing installation (the base is not used for forward facing installation), you can buy mulitple bases for multiple cars, and the car seat installs in the following ways:
Rear-facing installation, for children who are 15 to 35lbs:
--Use the Orbit Baby Infant Car Seat Base (not included with the Toddler Car Seat) that came with your Orbit Infant Car Seat, or purchase the base on its own.
--Install the Toddler Car Seat with the included braces, ideal for families who are traveling and want to leave the base at home.
Forward-facing installation, for children who are 25 to 65lbs:
--Install the seat with the braces only, never with the Orbit Baby Infant Car Seat Base (it's for rear-facing installation only).
Q:We have the " Maxi-Cosi Family Fix base" that fits the Pebble seat. (We live in Zurich Switzerland but are moving back to Chicago). We would like to be able to use Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Air Convertible Car Seat with this base. Do you know if our base will work with this seat?
Q:Does the car seat have a reclining position for an infant and a handle so it can be carried?
A:MaxiCosi's Pria 70 Air Convertible Car Seat is ideal for parents who don't need a true infant car seat that can be clicked in and out of the car -- you'll love saving an infant car saet purchase with this convertible seat!
Its good value is bulit into its multistage longevity, and is a car seat you can use right from the beginning -- use Pria 70 in its rear-facing recline for infants weighing 4 to 40lbs; turn it around forward-facing for kids weighing 22 to 70lbs.
Pria 70 is portable and is approved for use on an airplane, but it's not equipped with a carry handle like an infant car seat. This seat will primarily stay installed in your car, but it's easy to unistall it and move it into another vechicle or take it with you traveling.
If you're looking for a car seat with a carry handle we recommend a true infant car seat, like Graco's Snugride 35 for longevity or MaxiCosi's Mico for a smaller, lighter-weight option.
