I was provided a Target Gift Card to acquire the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi travel system to facilitate this post; all opinions are my own.
I have many fabulous nieces and nephews, and I feel lucky to have the opportunity on occasion to help lighten the burden of parenthood for one of them. No, I don’t provide them with parenting advice because goodness knows they’d never listen to me, just as I ignored those that came before me. But by being able to offer them something that helps lessen the financial burden a baby creates which gives me the joy of feeling like I’ve helped them on their journey.
Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and Infant Car Seat Carrier – Getting Ready for Baby
Recently I had the pleasure of treating my niece who’s pregnant with her second child in just this way. She and her husband already have the most adorable little girl who knows a thing or two about babies and strollers, and their newest child is well on the way. As any second-time mom knows, the second pregnancy is always tougher. You don’t have the luxury of napping when you’re tired or feeling ill like you did with the first. Oh no, this time your schedule is dictated by your firstborn. That can lead to one tired mama whose body is rebelling just a bit about being pulled out of whack again so soon after the last pregnancy.
I’m hoping that by gifting my sweet niece with a new Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and Infant Car Seat Carrier from Target.com she’ll have one less thing to worry about for before her baby arrives. Plus it’s a major expense that they won’t have to build into their budget. Next to cribs, car seats and strollers are among the most costly baby items.
What I like about this system is that it can grow with the baby. The infant seat pairs with the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi stroller to create a snuggly cocoon that keeps the baby safe and sound while out shopping, touring a park or visiting grandma. Then the infant seat pops out easily and locks down on the seat base in mom’s car quickly and securely and they’re ready to go. Additional bases can be purchased separately allowing them to buy one for dad’s car to make moving the baby from one car to the other a breeze.
When the baby is ready to graduate to a toddler seat, Maxi-Cosi sells a larger seat that’s compatible with the stroller and bases. That means they’ll go on supporting the child until it’s time to transition him to a booster seat, and that’s great money-saving feature. It’s just one of the reasons that the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and Infant Car Seat Carrier is a fabulous choice or gift, for any family with a baby on the way.
Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi – Purchase at Target.com
The Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi is only available online at Target.com, which was great for me. I prefer online shopping because it gives me a chance to check out specifications, warranties, size, return policies, and more all from the comfort of my home. I’m a savvy shopper, and I don’t purchase an item until I’m sure the product is the best fit for my needs and has the quality and value I require.
Purchasing the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-taxi at Target.com was simple. I already had an account, but if I hadn’t, signing up for one takes just a few minutes. I could also have checked out as a guest and still been able to track my package. However, I’ve learned from past experiences to take the few minutes it requires to register so that all of my purchasing history is available in one location.
I could have paid with my designated online shopping credit card, Target REDcard, Target Gift Card, or PayPal. I love the convenience of logging on to my PayPal account and paying that way – no credit card number or security codes to remember – so shopping is quick and easy. So easy I’ve even ordered and paid with PayPal from my phone while flying in an airplane 30K feet in the air. Plus my PayPal account is linked to my online bookkeeping software, so my purchases are entered automatically – win/win! For those of you with a Target REDcard, you can save 5% on this purchase and get free shipping every day.
Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and Infant Car Seat Carrier – Delivery
The Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi was so popular that it was back ordered, but I was kept updated via email by Target, and it arrived just as they stated it would last week which was perfect timing. I delivered the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and Infant Car Seat Carrier on Easter Sunday to my sweet niece.
My husband assembled it, so it was ready to go, and though I’d forgotten the big blue bow I made for it at home, it was still a welcomed gift. My newest great-niece tried it out for us and declared it comfy.
I can’t wait to meet my great nephew in a few months. I know that he’s already a lucky boy because he’s got some fabulous parents and he’ll be safe and snuggly in his travels in his new car seat and stroller.
Would you and your family benefit from the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and Infant Car Seat Carrier and are you a Target.com or in-store shopper?
