    BUMP BUMP

    Just wondering

    Mumma Bear I know a few girls on here who use the maxi with the isofix here in OZ they do I believe have a letter from their insurance company stating that they will be covered in an accident even when using a non aussie approved car seat.....im sure they will post shortly to help you out.

    I got a maxi cabrio just recently for my Zapp stroller the blossom topline model and it is devine to look at thats for sure, but we dont use it in the car just dont want to risk it
    we use the safe n sound polo capsule as this is the safest on the aussie market.
    You can hire them for around $80 for 6mths


    Does any one have any more infor on this- id love to know some more

    I have the Maxi Cosi car seat, i do use it, yes i know it's not approved, but it is SO secure and doesn't move at all. With the Safensound seat we had we could never get it secure.
    DH bought it not realising it wasn't approved.
    The side impact wings are very very strong and deep.
    Cant wait to see what does get approved, i'll be getting out the CC again.

    You can only buy them Overseas
    I got mine from www.babytrader.nl
    I only use mine on my zapp stroller OR as a rocker for bub
    I use the polo capsule for the car

    I do agree the maxi seems very safe and i have used it in the car once BUT I cant bring myself to use it regularly.

    You can get them on ebay too
    Im going to sell mine soon as bubs is getting older now, they re sell well on ebay

    I got my seat from a local baby 2nd hand shop, when i informed them that they are not Aus Standards they said they won't get anymore, but i will ask for you where they were getting them from, they are 2nd hand.

    Question In the USA. Coming home next year.

    Hi,
    I'm another one with the frustrating dilemma about carseats. I'm living in the US at the moment and I'm due March 08. Likely to have the baby here. I'm busily doing research on the myriad of prams/strollers out there and I'm very impressed with the European models and the Aussie Valco models. I am still trying to find out the following info:

    - With the tough laws in Australia with carseats/capsules, are Aussie Mums still able to and do they remove the capsule from the car and use it in a snap-in style system with their prams? Or is the capsule system too complicated to get in and out? If this is not the "done thing" at home (it's very popular in America, but their safety standards are EXTREMELY lax in some states!) I won't stress myself about trying to geta stroller that will be compatible with a car seat.

    - Can someone clarify for me and/or point me in the right direction of the relevant authorities to ask whether I need to buy a capsule and carseat in Australia? I have heard that it must have the Australian Standards Board sticker on it. I am trying to find out if I can buy an identical seat and capsule here (likely for a fraction of the price) so I can use it in the USA and then take it with me on the plane for my arrival in Australia.

    Any information on this topic is greatly appreciated. It's tricky trying to figure all of this out from the other side of the world!!

    Thanks guys.

    Wow thanks for all the info LouBelly and great to hear your son was safe. Were you OK too?! I've been in a couple of accidents (hopefully I got them out of my system when I was younger- touch wood!) and they sure are scary to go through. I can only imagine what it's like when your child is in the car with you.

    Do you leave your capsule in your car, or do you take it in and out to attach to your stroller?

    Hi

    Its been a while since this thread has been used can anyone shed some light on whether the Cabriofix has been approved yet through Australian Standards and if so where are they distributed?

    I looked up a distributor earlier described in this tread but they are not advertising the Quinny on their web site (I have also emailed them).
