Dorel Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Unboxing!


The Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 is brand new on the market and we know you’re excited to get a peek! We previewed the seat back in March and are excited to see it now. So, without further ado, the unboxing.

Cybex Aton Unboxing


One of the most highly anticipated infant seats recently is the Cybex Aton. From having one of the lightest seats to having one of the easiest bases to install, the Aton brings German engineering to the American market (and we know how much Americans love anything European 😉 ).

Upcoming Reviews and Honda Odyssey Q&A


We’ve got a lot of things in our queue for the next month or two.  Please stay tuned for carseat reviews of the Britax B-Safe, Bubble Bum, Cybex Aton, Graco Snugride 30, Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Plus, Safety 1st Go Hybrid and updates on the Britax Frontier 85 SICT.  We also hope to have auto reviews of the Acura MDX, Volvo XC60 and long term updates of the 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite.

Speaking of the Odyssey, I’ll also soon have a Q&A thread at Car-Seat.Org forums where I will try to help answer compatibility and seating questions over the summer in advance of the 2012 models.  It’s no secret we really like the Odyssey for it’s top notch safety and family seating flexibility.  I previewed it here and here and Kecia had a full review here.  Over the summer, I’ll also be doing short blog updates every couple weeks or so with videos and comments from our road trips and everyday use.

Here’s the preview :).
