Maxi-Cosi Tobi (Black Reflection).
As of September 2006, the use of safety belts in cars and approved child safety devices is mandatory for all children under 12 years old, or less than 1.35 metres in height, for transport by car in the front or back seat. Every Maxi-Cosi car seat model, defined in the UN safety standard ECE R44.04, is specially designed for each age as your child grows from birth to the age of 12 years.
- It is always the weight, not the age, of a child that dictates the choice of car seat.
- Do not buy or accept a second-hand car seat – you can never be certain of its full history and it may not provide adequate protection in an accident.
The Tobi offers five recline positions.
Accessories for the Tobi include the Pocket (sold separately).
Why Choose the Maxi-Cosi Axiss?
Higher riding position
The Maxi-Cosi Tobi car seat makes it easy to see out of the car window thanks to a base that positions the seat higher up in the car.
The Tobi is installed using a standard three-point seatbelt and a clever belt routing system. The seatbelt tensioner ensures the seatbelt is secured extra tightly.
This Group 1 car seat has a colour indicator to show that the seat is locked for driving.
The Maxi-Cosi Tobi also features side protection for extra safety in case of side impact in a collision.
Headrest and harness
Both the adjustable headrest and the harness of the Tobi go together to fit your growing child and offer optimum comfort and safety. The height of the headrest and harness belts can be adjusted at the same time at the front. Harness belt retention hooks keep the harness out of the way when placing your child or taking him/her out of the seat.
The Maxi-Cosi Tobi offers a useful five comfortable recline positions for your little one, from sitting to sleeping. Pull the positioning handle under the front of the seat upwards and then pull or push the seat forwards or backwards.
Car seat cover
The Tobi's seat cover can be removed for washing. It is advisable to buy an extra cover when purchasing the car seat, so that you can continue to use it even when the cover is being washed and dried.
Accessories available (sold separately) for the Maxi-Cosi Tobi include the summer cover, play tray, and pocket (holder for drinks and bottles).
Installing the Maxi-Cosi Tobi
Only use the Maxi-Cosi Tobi on a front-facing seat with an automatic three-point belt, provided it has been approved according to the ECE R16 standard or similar. Correct fitting of the car seatbelt is essential for the safety of your child. The car seat must be attached in the correct sequence along the red marks on the Maxi-Cosi Tobi.
Remove the headrest of the seat where the Maxi-Cosi Tobi is to be used in the car if it is in the way. Do not forget to put the headrest back when the seat is used again.
The Maxi-Cosi Tobi features convenient harness retention.
Secure the car seat harness (ensure you hear an audible 'click').
Ensure the shoulder belts are never twisted or damaged.
Leave no more than a one-finger/1 cm gap between harness and child.
Installation in a car
The Maxi-Cosi Tobi is intended for car use only. The Axiss must always be placed in a forward-facing position in the car. Lock fold-down rear seats before installing the Axiss.
The Maxi-Cosi Tobi may be used in the front seat or in the back seat, even if the car is equipped with an airbag. However, it is recommended for installation in the back seat. If this is not possible, make sure that, if installing on a front seat equipped with an airbag, the seat is in the rearmost position.
Use of harness
Always secure your baby with the harness belt, even when he/she is not in the car. Ensure you clearly hear an audible 'click' when securing the harness. The belt system should be adjusted according to the height of the child. Make sure you can fit no more than one finger (1 cm) between the harness belts and your baby. Ensure the shoulder belts are never twisted or damaged and are straight from the shell and across your baby's shoulders.
Check to make sure the headrest of the Maxi-Cosi Tobi is adjusted to the proper height.
Always cover the car seat when exposed to direct sunlight in the car to avoid the cover, metal, and plastic parts from becoming too hot for your child's skin.
Next stage car seats
Wait to switch your child to a next stage car seat when they have reached the maximum weight limit, or if the top of their head protrudes above the top edge of the seat. Recommended next-stage car seats include, for Group 2/3, the Maxi-Cosi Rodi AirProtect, Rodi XP, Rodi SPS, Fero, and FeroFix.
