It finally came! So we had to wait a little while before our Maxi-Taxi arrived, which made it more exciting when it was delivered to my door step! We have already been using the Maxi-Cosi infant seat and baby J seemed to enjoy the comfort of the seat. When our taxi arrived I immediately convinced my husband that we needed to put it together. Assembly was quick and easy, snapping on wheels and the braces that was it! We were ready to go! Our first trip, why of course to the baseball field because that is our second home in the spring and summer months!
We took out our big bulky double stroller added all of our necessities for going to games (everything but the kitchen sink) to keep a 10, 4, 3 and a 1 year old happy for 2 or more hours. It’s a lot! The Maxi-Taxi folds up and takes up no more space than a sack chair! There was actually room to add the girls new wagon! This made them very happy!
Baby J is one (still within weight and height requirements) and very mobile so I will have to admit that once we get from the car to the field he goes immediately into the portable play yard we have. However, when we are going shopping, the park, indoor amusement or anything that we won’t be standing still for a long period he is in his Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi traveling system!
On Target’s website key features are: Light. Quick. Easy. Done.Maxi-Cosi lets you and your baby enjoy every moment out and about with the clever Maxi-Taxi infant car seat carrier. The Maxi-Taxi is the perfect lightweight solution that lets you keep your infant snuggly in their car seat as you transfer them to the stroller frame. Simple and quick to fold and unfold, the Maxi-Taxi stores easily in your car. Open it up and attach your favorite car seat. The wheels on the Maxi-Taxi let you maneuver through your day with ease. A storage basket gives you a place for larger items, while the three-compartment, zip-to-close Parent Tray attaches between the handle bars letting you keep smaller items close by. With the Maxi-Taxi on hand, you’ll be ready to go wherever the day’s journey takes you.
I was afraid that I was loosing my storage basket from the double stroller that stored the diaper bags, jackets and whatever else the girls need to take but then no longer feel like carrying but the basket below on the Maxi-Taxi is large enough that it held the diaper bag, my kids coats, my friend’s kids coats and bag. The Parent Tray, can I just say it has a zipper! No worries of my phone, mimi (pacifier) or wallet falling out and it is quick access instead of digging down into my diaper bag.
There is no downside in using this travel system once I get it clicked correctly into place. I have trouble with lining the sides up exactly each time. I get a bit flustered but it goes away once I hear the click and go! Getting used to pushing two buttons and pulling is tricky at times but I have been using the same style of carseat that involved pulling the back since my first baby 16 years ago. I am so amazed how far baby gear has come from the first to the last. And the Maxi-Taxi is on my list of things to have!
