Once a new standard has been set, it is difficult to go back to the old way of doing things. I have not thought about car seats for children with airbags, but now, of course, it is the ONLY thing to focus on! It's the future, and that's where all car seats should be!

I was invited to the launch of the Maxi-Cosi car seat with built-in airbags, at MamaMagic at the Ticketpro Dome. Warren Murray, Exhibition Director of MamaMagic SA, introduced the new technology!

Features of the Maxi-Cosi car seat with airbag protection

  • The car seat works with a crash detection system that detects a collision in 0.015 seconds. 
  • The system then inflates the airbags located in the two shoulder pads of the harness with cold air in the blink of an eye to cushion the head and neck. 
  • In the next second, the airbags automatically deflate.  
  • The Maxi-Cosi Air Safety technology reduces the forces on a child’s neck vertebrae and head up to 55%, keeping toddlers significantly safer than in a standard forward-facing child car seat.  
The first child car seat that will include the airbag is the Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Air. The car seat features a 360° swivel, which can be used for both rearward- and forward-facing travel and is suitable for children whose height is between 61 and 105 centimetres.

The testing is vigorous!

The car seat is available in stores from today!

Information: Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Air

Hopefully it will get less expensive with time?

  1. Very interesting ... hopefully the air bags never deploy...- a Mama can pray and hope that no child is ever ever in an accident


I love to hear your comments :D
