Maxi-Cosi Mico AP Baby Car Seat


Maxi-Cosi Mico AP Baby Car Seat Review

The Maxi-Cosi Mico AP is a rear facing car seat suitable for children ranging in weight from 5 to 22 pounds. For easy carrying, this car seat is the most lightweight in its class at only 8 lbs. The Cozi Dozi infant support supplied as standard with the Mico AP, provides protection and comfort for smaller infants, and the safety harness is easy to adjust as you child grows larger. Whilst the main safety features are addressed with this car seat, the baby weight limitation of only 22 lbs and height limit of 29″ means strong consideration should be given to other car seats, that can typically be used until your baby is between 32 to 35 lbs and 32″ in height.


The 5 point harness with front adjustment keeps the child safe and secure, as well as comfortable, when strapped into the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP. With energy absorbing foam and side impact protection, the child is kept safe and secure in the event of an accident, as the seat itself absorbs most of the shock. All federal crash safety requirements for car seats are met by the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP, and the air protection system affords the infant’s head extra protection at all times.

Ease of Use

The Maxi-Cosi Mico AP is extremely convenient in its ability to travel and go, as the car seat is able to work with a vast array of different strollers and travel accessories using an adaptor. With the convertor kit, you won’t need to worry about having a compatible Maxi stroller if you wish to take your child out of the car and into their stroller while out and about. The straps and buckles on the car seat are simple to use and simple to adjust, and the car seat is one of the lightest on the market, making it one of the easiest to carry. Alas the fabrics in the baby seat are not machine washable so you will have to clean these by hand when needed.

Additional Features

A flip-out visor is available on the canopy to allow for even greater protection from the sun. The canopy itself is easy to use if a little on the small side. It is compatible with a several Maxi-Cosi strollers, and with the use of an adapter (sold separately ) you can us the car seat in Bugaboo and Valco Baby strollers as well.

Warranty & Support

The Maxi-Cosi Mico AP comes with a 12 month limited warranty as standard. Maxi-Cosi’s customer support representatives are available for customers needing installation assistance and/or replacement product brochures.

Review Summary

The Maxi-Cosi Mico AP is a lightweight car seat that doesn’t skimp on protection. Meeting all federal safety standards, equipped with a 5 point harness, and boasting air protection and shock absorbing foam. This is a car seat that any parent can feel at ease strapping their child in to. The model comes in a wide array of different colors, and it’s able to be used with an even wider array of different strollers. The only downside is that a child can be expected to grow out of the car seat in (or under) one year, as the maximum weight and height limits are reached. Up to these weight and height limitations however, the car seat offers optimal protection and convenient easy to carry lightweight construction.
