Maxi-Cosi Tobi Car Seat, Black Reflection

Product information

The specially designed base on the Maxi-Cosi car seat positions the seat higher so that little ones can easily see out of the window during car journeys. A group 1 car seat, suitable for toddlers 9-18 kg (approximately 9 months to 4 years), the Tobi is easy to install with a 3-point seat belt.

The Tobi car seat features an innovative harness system which springs open and stays in that position whilst seating your child. With a clever light indicator that shows whether your child is safely buckled in the seat and an additional belt tension system, which tightens to provides a more solid and secure fit when on the move.

The car seat features protective side supports, which offer protection against side impact, and the shoulder straps and headrest can be easily adjusted with one hand so the seat grows with your child. It also has 5 reclining positions and a soft head hugger.

All our car seats and infant carriers comply with current European regulation ECE R44.04.


  • Under no circumstances should a car seat be used on a passenger seat where there is an airbag.
  • Correct fitting of all car seats and boosters is of paramount importance to make them most effective in the event of an accident. Not all car seats fit all cars and it is important to check for fitting suitability on all cars you intend fitting the seat to, as well as re-checking if you change your car.
  • Always read the instruction booklet which comes with your car seat to achieve a safe and correct fitting, retaining the guide for future reference. We recommend fitting your car seat in advance of first using it.
  • We recommend that babies shouldn`t be left in Group 0/0+ car seats (infant carriers) for prolonged periods.



  • Please make sure that you check the car seat you choose is suitable for your car before ordering.
  • Some of our shops offer a car seat fit test, where a Nursery advisor will test the display model in your car to check that it will fit properly. Please contact your local shop to see if this service is available. Alternatively, please contact the car seat manufacturer who will be able to advise whether their model will be suitable for your car.

Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by safety problem the straps become loose after travelling and one falls down the child's shoulder making it dangerous. I have sent mine back to the manufacturer after three months use as I was concerned it was not safe. 26 September 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok car seat We have had this seat about a year and some and our first impressions were very good. Fitting the seat is very simple and feels secure. It has three seat settings, highest being our child is more laid back which we used more for when she was younger and the lowest which is more upright. Just recently my daughter is able to get her arms out even though I have pulled it until you see the green strip ( in the instructions it says to pull the strap until you see a green strip and that's when it's tight enough) and today (main reason for writing this review) she is able to undo the buckle! As another reviewer has already said my daughter uses her two thumbs also! When we first got the seat it was quite hard for me to undo it, I would have to use two hands but now I can do with just one so I think over time it loosens but that could be at different times for all of them if at all. Shame as it was good and I feel for the money it didn't last as long as we would have liked as we will be getting a new one. 13 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great car seat! We chose this seat as it was narrow enough to allow us to fit 3 car seats in our car! It was easy to install and our 9 month daughter is snug as a bug. Very happy with our purchase! 26 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Car Seat My daughter loves this seat. It was easy to fit in the car, is very sturdy and I love the design. I love the design and my daughter is really comfy in it! 23 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent car seat,, very good value for the quality We have bought three of these car seats now, and highly recommend them. We feel they are less bulky than a lot of the alternatives and find them excellent value for money. 09 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Maxi Cosi Initially complicated to fit. But simple once you know how. The hip straps contain the child well. Need to make sure that the straps are tight every time, as it automatically releases the straps for adjustment when un-clipped. Quick and simple to adjust for height, no need to shift straps through different holes. Got the stamp of approval from my daughter when she fell asleep in it first time. So far a great seat. 07 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent service The delivery was fantastic, less than 2 days for free. The seat is great, very high so my little boy can look out the window which he loves. 15 August 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Really secure car seat. Relatively easy to install. My only slight disappointment is it doesn't seem to tilt very far backwards, although that doesn't seem to prevent my baby from sleeping. Overall happy with my purchase. 20 July 2012
