Good option for a larger vehicle
May 12, 2023
We don’t mind the Pria. It was kind of a pain to install and get it in right in my car. We tried it in my husbands truck and it fits so much better! The car seat itself is nice and cozy. My baby fits well.
  • Soft and nice material.
  • Fits great in a truck
  • Not a good car seat for a car.

Okay but not great
May 4, 2023
This car seat was okay but not great. Liked the material/the seat itself. But found it to be bulky, didn't feel like the base was very secure, had a hard time getting it to sit "flat" according to the line when installing. Much prefer a dial that tells you it's sitting at the right level. Ended up returning it.

We loved this seat so much we bought two! the colorways, fabric and fit were perfect for our family. install was straightforward and clipped right into place in our back seat. It is a bit bulky when back facing (so we lost some passenger-side legroom) but once we flipped to front facing it was much better. The cover is washable and we love the cup holders for drinks and snacks! Clipping in and out is a breeze. Feels secure. We love it and are looking forward to it being one our daughter continues to grow with.

Comfy, cozy and easy to use
March 27, 2023
We love these car seats. We bought our first when our 3-year-old turned 12 months because she hated the bucket seat. We just bought a second for our 16-month-old and she loves it too! Very cozy and roomy. They are bigger seats so recommend for use in SUV or minivan.

Amazing seat!
March 26, 2023
Our 15 month old absolutely loves this seat! He hated getting in the car, but not anymore. The padding on this seat is amazing. Not even two weeks after installing we were in an accident and the car seat didn’t even budge and our little was unharmed. Car seat has since been replaced free of charge by maxi-cosi due to accident. I recommend this seat to all my momma friends.
  • Lots of cushion
  • Removable and washable cup holders
  • Hooks on side for easy loading
  • A little hard to install

The car seat is very easy to clean & the material is very plush. Adjusting the recline & straps is also very easy. I like the button release for the latch instead of the clip release. We loved this seat so much we ended up buying a second for our other vehicle!
  • Button release latch

I just received my convertible car seat last night. It’s my first purchase from Albee, and I am thrilled with the experience. They shipped my items to me quickly, and I was notified of shipping updates the whole time. The car seat came in it’s original packaging, and is perfect. I inspected it and got to know how it works.. can’t wait to use it when our baby arrives in August! Thanks for the amazing deals, Albee. I will definitely be shopping here again.

Great Car Seat!
February 1, 2023
Bought two of these seats for my twins. They are very well made and comfortable. Only downside is they cause the front seats of my van to be pushed very far forward when used rear-facing. Black color is great for spills and dirt!

Beautiful and Practical
January 25, 2023
This is a very nice looking car seat that blends in with my vehicle really well, but most importantly, I love that toxic fire-retardant chemicals are NOT use on the fabric and that the padding feels very soft and secure for my baby (I did not notice any chemical smells that some reviewers mention). The harness system is also AWESOME - it truly makes it so easy to get in and out with the magnetic clip and flip away buckle. I made the mistake of going cheap with my infant carrier and the buckle on that car seat is such a pain to use in comparison to this one; those extra seconds make such a difference in cold winter temperatures or with fussy babies. I ended up getting two - one for each vehicle. Highly recommend!

UNSAFE! Please don't buy this seat!
January 10, 2023
Let me first say that I wanted to be a Maxi-Cosi fan but this is my first and last Maxi-Cosi car seat purchase. The seat comes with zero packing protection new in box- no bags, paper, or foam, just a box with a loose users manual. OK environmentally friendly perhaps but the product suffers in transit as a result. As others reviewers have mentioned, Pulled threads randomly all over the fabric and the stench of what I can only imagine is something akin to formaldehyde are the first impressions you'll be greeted with. Then it's time for the install...For almost an hour and a half my wife and I struggled to install this seat and still could not get it to securely tighten to the car without sloppy side to side movement. Even the maxi-cosi website tutorials were insufficient in addressing proper installation. There's no way I could put my child in this seat and feel remotely like it's offering adequate protection. I'm astonished this seat hasn't been recalled and pulled from store shelves as its build quality is cheap and all methods of securing the seat in the car leave way too much play for the seat to move around during a potential car accident. I've purchased 3 Chicco car seats prior to this one, all with incredibly thoughtful and reliable safety features that took less then 10 minutes to install and will be returning this seat to purchase another Chicco. For the safety of your children, please don't buy this seat.

It smells like chlorine and paint thinner.
December 19, 2022
I'm not sure what kind of chemical mixture they used in manufacturing this but it's awful. I am retuning the car seat. I don't want my baby inhaling those fumes. Even after washing multiple times and airing out on my porch, the stink of chemicals remains strong.

Sturdy but difficult to use.
November 30, 2022
It is a well made and sturdy seat but it is difficult to pull tight using the latch connections. In addition the pull strap for the harness is extremely difficult to get tight. I’ve never experienced this type of issue with any other car seat before. There are better options available especially considering the price. As always ordering from Albee Baby is easy and their customer service is great.
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to use infant pads
  • Stylish
  • Sturdy
  • Difficult to install
  • Takes up a lot of space in regards to width and then also in depth when rear facing
  • Difficult to tighten harness securely

Excellent seat and customer service!
October 15, 2022
I'm so impressed with the customer service! We loved the pria all in one that we bought for our daughter about a year and a half ago, but we noticed it was starting to wear after one 1-2 washes, so I messaged them and got replacement interior fabric/padding delivered to my front door within TWO days! Wow! Made us go out and buy the Max version for my son! Can't beat the customer service!

I've had this car seat since my son was about 8 months and he is now 4 and a half. It has been through so many stains, accidents, and even my 55lb bulldog sitting on it. The seat still looks brand new and there are no rips! I will be passing this seat down to my second child when he is big enough.

August 23, 2022
I was in love with the infant car seat and then thought of going for the same brand thinking it will be same as the infant seat . But I am wrong it's very bulky and take so much space and heavy . Material is very good as always. But soon after my first wash it started to rip open from the stitches. And very little padding on the bottom , I don't know what to do . We spent so much thinking this will be great purchase, but no . Such a waste .

Safety Warning!
August 14, 2022
I bought this seat and on day #3 when I was buckling my little one in...one complete side of the shoulder harness completely disconnected and it appears it was never anchored. I was so excited about this seat, but now Im terrified and will never buy this brand again. WHY-would they even be designed to come unanchored? No way this is safe....had it not come out when I was buckling I never would have know.

3.5 stars-seat cover rips when washed.
July 12, 2022
I love the cup holder proximity and that you get two. We had used 3 different pria models with our daughter and I bought a nuna for my second son because it felt study. Well the cup holders on the car seat are awful and a child can't reach them until 3+ so I decided to buy a new pria in the max all in one. My son had an accident and peed so I had to wash the fabric. I washed it on delicate in a non agitating HE washer and the entire seam that runs your child's knee back to their butt ripped. I was hoping I could find a replacement cover set since there is nothing structurally or age wise wrong with an 18 month old car seat.

Heavy, clunky, pain in rear.
May 28, 2022
I hate this car seat. It's a total pain to install tightly, the instruction manual is useless, it's a poor design, if you take off the cover or try to reassemble the straps good luck getting it back together correctly. There are no good videos online to clarify the bad instructions. Just.. do not recommend at all for this price. It matches my car so there's that but that's about the only good thing I can say.

Why are the Locking Cups not available for Purchase
April 23, 2022
It's tough I cannot find parts to the Maxi Cosi Magellan Max Locking cups anywhere online or on the Maxicosi website...I have lost both of the locking cups on my daughters car seat because she knows how to remove them and also our stroller has a plastic cup holder that locks in place on the side and that was lost during our flight to Canada...I think Maxi Cosi needs to have items that are easy to detach off its items available for parts because buying a whole new car seat is not cheap.

Ripped cover
April 12, 2022
The cover ripped within a week of installing the car seat. My son is only 8 months old, and definitely did not contribute to the issue. It completely ripped at the seams, creating a large hole at the base of the seat. Poor quality for such an expensive seat. I should have never went away from Britax! They are the best

I've washed my under a year old car seat pads TWICE tonight they fell apart leaving me without a car seat now for my 19 month old son. Very unhappy with the money spent on what I thought was a top Of line car seat.

Doesn’t quite compare to original Maxi-Cosi Pria
January 10, 2022
We’ve had Maxi Cosi Pria’s for 6+ years so it was time to upgrade. These are nice but not quite like the original. Material is different and not as cushiony. I’m disappointed.

My grandson likes this seat very much. When he got it for a Christmas gift he’d set in it on the floor for quit a while. Now that he’s facing forward in the vehicles he’s a happy camper. The seat is everything you’d want it to be comfortable and easy to use.

This is our 3rd Maxi cosi convertible seat. I love how cushioned and comfortable they seem. My kids all love them. I like how washable they are. The new style chest clip that is magnetic but has two buttons to unlock it is nice and more intuitive for grandparents and those who aren’t familiar with the magnet on the older models.

Very unstable
November 26, 2021
The rear high strap connects to an anchor point typically on the rear of the seat. To tighten said strap, instead of pulling away (giving you maximum leverage) you must awkwardly force the strap downwards where the locking pin interferes with getting it to synch. The side anchor straps is actually one strap that has 3 tails, making it impossible to tighten all 3 directions causing sloppiness in seat-to-car connection and extremely dangerous if the vehicle experiences any whipping motion.

A bit bulky but fantastic
November 20, 2021
If you are pressed for discrimination this isn't your seat, but in every other way it's fabulous. Great height and weight limits to keep them rear facing and then forward facing as long as possible. Easily wiped down. My kiddo seems comfy and happy.

Comfortable seat with great new features
November 16, 2021
My daughter loves this seat! It is so much more comfortable than her previous seat. She loves that it sits up higher, so she can see out of the windows. I love that the shoulder pads are attached to stay in place. No twisting! I also love the magnetic chest buckle that makes it so easy for me or my child to clip the buckle. I appreciate anything that makes it easier for me to buckle my child when I'm reaching into the third row of my van. The biggest downside of this seat is that it is large/wide. That's not a huge deal to me, though, because I've found that unless I'm using a specifically slimline seat, I can't fit three seats across anyway. I would recommend this seat. I received this seat as part of a promotion.

What else can you ask for?
November 15, 2021
I have used several car seats in my attempts to find the perfect one and the Maxi-Cosi Pria Max is definitely in my top 2 along with the Nuna. I have tried the Maxi-cosi with both my infant and with my 5 year old. My five year old loves it. She says it's very comfy and that she prefers it over her previous one. With my infant, I love that it is so cushioned and seems to support her head so well. Her head doesn't flop around when she falls asleep, which is a major problem with most car seats. Also, I love that this car seat is so versatile. It works for newborns and grows with the child first as a rear facing seat and then eventually can be used for older kids that are forward facing. There are some amazing features that I had not realized I was missing. The quick fit shoulder harness is the best thing ever! It has harness holders on both sides to keep the straps out of the way when you're putting your baby in the seat. It's a game changer when you have a squirmy baby in tow! Also, the cushions on the straps are held in place and don't have to positioned higher or lower when you're loosening or tightening the straps. And honestly, the magnetic chest clip feature should be standard on all car seats! I can get her in and out of that seat with one hand and without fumbling and getting her arms all tangled in the straps. It makes my life easier while protecting my girls. What else can you ask for from a car seat?

Great car seat!
November 11, 2021
This convertible car seat is really neat! It has two cup holders and has washable parts that can be removed easily to be washed. I like that it also has a button that you press to adjust the headrest and straps instead of having to pull in the belt itself. It seems very sturdy. It is both forwards and backward facing. My baby is 9 months now and I can see us using this car seat for a long time. It even came with the extra inserts for small infants. Had I known about this one I probably would have opted for this car seat first before getting my previous one.

So safe and comfy!
November 8, 2021
I love the seat! We researched for hours and it's so hard to find a very safe seat that does it all and this one fits the bill. It's sturdy and feels like it's going to last though all the stages it'll be needed for. I love that you can have an infant all the way to booster. The fabric is really high quality and will be great for spot cleaning. It's huge though. As we think about growing the fam- I don't think 3 of these would fit in a row. Something to think about but for now perfect for our sweet girl and fits great in our Subaru. We love all Maxi Cosí products- always amazing quality.
