    Just in time!

    Posted by Nina on Dec 16th 2021

    Wow, we got this pipa car seat just in time! Our son came early, and scrambled to get our car seat to take him home. Calling Kidsland, they were able to get us the pipa in the color we wanted with the new relx base. We've been using it for over a month now and recommend it 100%

    Perfect carseat

    Everyone recommended the pipa car seat, and we can see why. While pricier, the car seat includes soft cushions to protect our baby, easy to use base, and attaches to our mixx nuna stroller. Great product

    Great buy

    We've been using this car seat since our baby came home 3 weeks ago. Its light and easy to use. Our baby is comfortably in it, with soft plush materials and wide canopy. The included base is tricky to install at first, but easy to switch between cars once you get the hang out it.
