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


Maxi-Cosi Tobi Car Seat, Black Reflection 4.5 5 11 11
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
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
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
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
Not fit for purpose I bought this seat for my granddaughter when she was one. She is now two years and one month and can undo the buckle without extricating herself from the straps, simply by pressing the button with two thumbs (usually when having a tantrum). I am told that she is overly dextrous, and that the clasp fulfils the legal requirements. How can a seat be considered a safety seat when a toddler at the bottom end of the age group for the seat in question can open the clasp with little difficulty? It is not fit for purpose. 15 June 2012
Good product This car seat is good, but I do feel it is a little big. definately bigger than some of the other car seats. I think its the base that makes it that much bigger. It does seem really comfortable for my little boy and he loves sitting in it and facing forward. The support in it is excellent, ie. head rest, sides etc. but I do also find that the straps dont stay fixed in a set postition so you have to tighten or loosen it every time you put the child in, which can be a bit annoying. They stay fixed when fastened obviously though. It is an excellent quality product. you do get what you pay for in that sense 14 May 2012
Ideal for new Mini's I purchased these car seats for my Mini Cooper as they are the only ones that seem to fit safely. My twin grandaughters fit in them comfortably and can see out of the windows, which they love. In fact they are so good my daughter in-law now uses them daily in her car, prefering them to the ones she had. We just tranfer them to mine when I have them for the day. They are easy to fit and remove. An excellant seat. Well made and feels sturdy. 23 November 2011
Excellent Having read a few mixed reviews I was a little concerned but made the purchase based on a friends recommendations. I am really pleased I did. The seat is easy to fit and therefore move between cars. It is nice and high and my 2 year old son loves being bale to see out of the window. The harness system makes it easy to get him in and out. 16 October 2011
