2015 – Shortlisted for 'Car Seat 0+' Award!
The Nuna Pipa car seat is attractive, easy to install and can be used with a seatbelt as well as the ISOFIX base. The ISOFIX does, however, make installation a dream. One improvement would be the inclusion of little magnets to hold back the straps while putting the baby in the seat; maybe a 2wayfix feature too?
The car seat component is lovely and light, easy to clean (the shoulder pads and middle section can be removed for washing) and comfortable. It has three different sized canopies; one of which covers the entire seat, allowing little ones to sleep uninterrupted whilst being transferred from car to pram. It would be nice if the seat reclined; it sits at an upright position, which is great for posture in older children but is not a natural position for babies, and not only that; the buckle tends to fall off as a result the lack of incline. The seat is also quite heavy.
A couple of niggles but overall, good value for money.
2014 – Car Seat 0+ Award!
The Nuna Pipa ISOFIX Base is the perfect companion for the group 0+ PIPA car seat. It's a quality product that is functional and easy to install.
The chair component has an excellent sun-hood that offers a good amount of shade as well as UV protection. The fabric is soft against baby’s skin and can be wiped clean, and the extra back rest reduces the size of the car seat for younger babies, which is useful. The chair is lightweight and can be manoeuvred in and out of the car without hassle.
It can be difficult to clip and unclip the seatbelt, and the cover where the seatbelt fastens into seems quite loose but overall, a secure (combination) product that will keep precious cargo safe en route.
