Maxi-Cosi Magellan 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat Review

This post is sponsored by Maxi-Cosi.

For the past 4 years, my kids have been in Maxi-Cosi car seats because they’re the absolute best in my opinion. I’ve tried out other brands but always go back to Maxi-Cosi. Maxi-Cosi introduced the first infant car seat to Europe in 1984, and since then, they’ve been the top-selling baby car seat in the world. For the past 30 years, Maxi-Cosi car seats have carried over 50 million babies home, and two of those babies happen to be mine. There’s something really exciting about picking your baby’s car seat when you’re pregnant (or your convertible when you’re ready to transition from an infant car seat).

For a chance to win a Maxi-Cosi Magellan 5-in-1 car seat for yourself head on down to my my Instagram post!

Maxi Cosi Magellan 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat Review |

Besides being synonymous with safety, innovation, and beautiful design, I’ve found Maxi-Cosi car seats to be very comfortable, stylish and long-lasting. Today I’m reviewing my latest experience with the Maxi-Cosi line – the new 5-in-1 Magellan convertible car seat that can last your child from birth to 10 years old. Yes, you read that right – 10 years old. And it’s on sale right now at Target!

As your baby grows, so does the Maxi-Cosi Magellan. It’s an innovative new 5-in-1 convertible car seat that can be used straight from the hospital up until age 10 (5-120 lbs.). The Magellan transitions easily between fives modes: Baby Rear-Facing, Toddler Rear-Facing, Toddler Forward-Facing, Child Forward-Facing, and Belt-Positioning Booster (with back support). And, it’s the only car seat with adjustable torso side impact protection!

The Magellan grows with your whole child, not just their head. The high back booster offers better positioning of the shoulder belts and helps keep children from slumping over. All this makes it feel like a true all-in-one car seat.

What makes this convertible car seat really unique is that you can adjust the torso up and down, protecting your child’s whole body. It’s the only convertible car seat equipped with Maxi-Cosi’s patented Adjustable Side Impact Protection, creating a custom fit for all growth stages, ensuring their protection.

Cup holders come standard in their convertible car seats, but the Magellan has two! One for my son’s sippy cup and another for his trucks that he can’t go anywhere without. 🙂 As with every Maxi-Cosi car seat we own, the Magellan is designed with comfort and style in mind and uses premium fabrics that are easy to wash. I put my car seat fabrics in the washing machine by themselves on a cold, gentle cycle and air dry; they come out looking like new every time.

      What a rad car seat I just noticed yesterday my son about growing out of his infant seat I found this at just the perfect time! My favorite feature is that the covered is machine washable that is such a lifesaver my next favorite feature is that you can use it from birth all the way up so you only really need one car seat that’s so cool.
