Nuna’s line of Canadian car seats includes the Pipa and Pipa Lite rear facing only car seats, and the AACE booster seat. We’re excited to see that Nuna has entered the Canadian convertible car seat market with their RAVA convertible car seat. Let’s take a look at this new car seat and see what changes
Let’s pretend you’re going out alone or with only adults (impossible, I know, just bear with me for a moment here). You unlock the car, put your bag on the floor and your bum in the seat. Then you reach for your trusty seat belt, pull it across you, and buckle it. Easy, right? Without
NUNA’s Pipa Lite LX has been available in the United States for a while, but did you know there is also a European version of this lightweight rear facing only car seat? When NUNA asked if we would like to check out the European Pipa Lite LX we jumped at the chance! Lightweight yet full

The updated radian 3RXT multimode car seat loses a capital R in the name and adds some interesting new features.

(Almost) every car seat that can be installed rear facing has some flavor of recline angle indicator on the seat to show the correct recline angle or range as the seat is installed. Newborns or children who lack head and neck control require a more reclined install, while older babies with head and neck control
Our challenges with installing the seat lead us to assert that the Recline N’ Ride could be a good choice for children with special needs who require a deep recline when forward facing but it may not work well in some vehicles. It’s also quite limited in booster mode since our models struggled to buckle themselves into the seat.
