We just purchased the Britax Boulevard after watching several videos. Yours are so thorough and detailed and were very helpful! Thank you for sharing.

Anjuli Custer says:

Thank you for the video! Why is the Diono not on your list anymore?

marleytarynnoel says:

THANK YOU for such great demos!! You have helped me so much!! in your opinion is the maxi cozy to most compact car seat of the ones you showed here? W have a very small car ( ford fiesta) We currently have the peg Perego infant car seat but its about to expire. I appreciate your time. First Time Mom here 🙂

aurora Amaro says:

Is the order of presentation means the first is the best?

CalamityJane031 says:

Do you have any information on whether or not the Nuna Rava is, or will be, available in Canada?

Perez Family Adventures says:

Wow, 120 pounds!!? Adults can sit in that thing!

diane smith says:

can you show how to install the Maxi Cosi…. trying to figure out how “Easy” it is to install for a grandparents car 🙂

Mara N says:

I’m so glad this video went up before we have to buy a convertible car seat! My hubby and I value your opinion very much and these videos help us be so much more informed than we would be otherwise. A few questions, though.

Is the Nanotex effective for a sweaty baby? Would it keep them cooler than the Cool Flow line? Would the Rava be effective for that as well? We have the Pipa and were set on the Rava but our daughter gets so sweaty in 100°+ and I’m sure she’d like us to help her stay cooler.

Thank you so much for this video and all the info!!

Hi Eli and everybody at Magic Beans.

First of all, thank you and congratulations for all your videos. Since we knew we were going to be parents and started to look at all of the things we must buy for our baby, Magic Beans videos are the most complete and helpful.

Our baby is 10 months now, almost 8 kilos and have the Maxi Cosi Max 30 [or something like that], and we are now thinking to buy a convertible car seat. From these 4 options you review, what would be the best one for a Nissan Kicks? considering rear-facing installation?

Thank you so much, and again, congratulations for your reviews.

kristina Anders says:

Great video you explained everything really well thank you for taking the time to make these videos 🙂

Amna Kazmi says:

These are good for newborns as well?

sally jiang says:

What’s the ranking of these car seats from your most favorite? When does a toddler transition to the booster seat (after convertible)?

Sarah Teel says:

car seat shopping is the most stressful thing a parent does i think! i really wish you could just ship be what ever you think is best lol

Keirsten Scott says:

Hey Eli! Can you show an installation of the Magellan Max?

Wingie X says:

Hi Eli. Thanks for the review. Would you be able to do a comparison video of this new Maxi Cosi model and the Maxi Cosi Pria 70?

Esmeralda Soliz says:

Which convertible seat do you recommend that can be used in a car with inflatable seatbelts?

Livly Ray says:

Can you recline these seats while they’re installed? Like if my child falls asleep and I want to further recline them (following the safety guide on the side) can I do that quick without having to stop the car, take my child out, and reinstall it just to recline it?

Diana Carolina M.R. says:

What about the Cybex Sirona, with its 360• degree rotating seat for easy access, would you recommend it?
I am between the Nuna RAVA and the Cybex Sirona!

Sandra Sampson Dunn says:

Please help me… I need the smallest convertible seat for rear facing. I have a fiat 500c and my 2 month old is getting too big for her infant seat. I need a car seat with the smallest measurements all around. I guess width is not as much as an issue as the car is only 2 seats in the back but the depth and height is an issue

princesssadieloo says:

I need help… My baby is 9 months… what booster or convertible seat is easiest for taxi / uber? Im concerned that after she turns 1, I won’t be able to uber..

Life In Allentown says:

Hi Eli. Which would you recommend between the Foonf and the 4ever Extend2Fit?

ProudArabz says:

What about cybex sensorsafe?

Beckah Mataronas says:

When I was pregnant with my son I chose the Graco Contender because of the features and high shell height for the price, but now 18 months later I’m reconsidering and leaning towards a Boulevard Clicktight ARB. I had no idea carseat rebound could be so severe in a crash!

mtmme says:

Thanks for the vid. Which one is the smallest in overall dimension?

Beatriz Pereira says:

Hey MagicBeans!
Do you happen to ship internationally? I feel like the US has soooo many things that Europe doesn’t have when it comes to nursery/baby stuff (or their ridiculously expensive).

Thank you so much in advance!

Love your videos ❤️
