SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2012

Maxi-Cosi Pria 70

Some car seats boast that they are easily transportable so that you can move from car to car with ease. This is not the case with the Maxi-Cosi. This is one very heavy and sturdy car seat and according to testers, that’s just fine with them. They liked the sturdy construction and the liberal amounts of padding. Installation takes about two minutes. The straps are quite easy to adjust, and since this will not be moving much, the most adjusting you will do is moving the head rest up and down. For infants there is a seat insert which snuggly held little ones. Now we move on to the little extras that the designers threw in like a cupholder that really grabs hold of drinks making spills less likely. The soft padded fabric is comfortable but also very easy to clean. Finally reviewers had nothing but great things to say about the customer support staff at Dorel Juvenile who were pleasant, helpful and eager to fix or replace any items.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
