Baby Car Seats

Baby car seats can be difficult to choose when you do not know baby car seat groups and types. Our knowledge of baby gear, not just baby car seats, is broad, having been in this business since 2012. We provide you with the information you need to buy the best baby car seat for your needs.

Tajistore maintains top-rated baby car seat brands such as Joie, Nuna, and Graco, that offer features such as iSOFIX and have a good recline for newborns.

Safety

Safety is the primary concern when using a car seat for a baby. While aesthetics and extra features are good to have, safety is paramount. If you cannot confirm the safety of your baby’s car seat, you are using a chair in the car and this itself is a hazard in the event of an impact.

We stock top-rated baby car seat brands, so you do not need to worry about safety. A safe car seat is crash-tested based on standards set by regulating authorities in countries like the US, the EU, and other jurisdictions. Our baby car seat brands not only meet these standards but exceed them.

Types

Depending on the geographical territory the car seat brand-originated seats are grouped numerically like Group 0+/1, Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, Group 1/2/3, Group 2/3 or categorized by use i.e., Infant Baby Car Seat, Convertible Car Seat, Combination Car Seat, High Back Booster, and Backless Booster.

Baby car seat groups determine use based on the child’s weight and height. Your seat comes with a manual that gives this information and further, the seat itself always contains diagrams illustrating the different stages in case of a multi-stage seat.

Installation

Car seat installation is simple, do not let the belts and anchor points intimidate you. There are two main types of installation:

Vehicle seat belt installation

Belt installation is universal – meaning installation can be done in any car with seat belts (assuming all cars do). The seat is secured using your vehicle belt, following a belt path with colour markings. When done right, a vehicle seat belt is very safe. Stickers with installation information are found on the sides of the child seat, acting as your manual on the go.

ISOFix Installation

Until recently, ISOFix use was not common. First invented in the mid-90s by VW in collaboration with Britax, the ISOFix baby car seat has become popular with buyers due to its fuss-free installation. ISOFix means International Standard Organization Fix, a technology that uses metal hooks integrated into the car seat to anchor onto your vehicle’s ISOFix points. These points are marked (ISOFIX) on the rear passenger seats. Rampant incorrect vehicle seatbelt installation necessitated the invention of ISOFix, a sort of “no-mistake” installation solution. Most ISOFix car seats still have belt installation options, making them universal. Modern cars include ISOFix points and in the future, most car seats will have ISOFix connectors although belt installation in car seats is not going away anytime soon.

Please note there are semi-universal car seats, meaning, baby car seats that cannot be installed in some vehicles. For example, when a seat is installed via ISOFix only. Rotating baby car seats, commonly known as 360-degree seats, fall into this category. Their construction does not allow for belt installation. Please consider this when making a purchasing decision. Also, note that ISOFix car seats are heavier than belt seats and cost more.

We offer in-store demos for baby car seats so if in Nairobi, you can pop by our store at Yaya Centre 1st Floor and see available baby car seats. We also do free baby car seat installation upon purchase if you physically collect your seat from the store. Our seats have a 1-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects (this is the standard warranty offered worldwide) and you can be sure your investment is protected when you buy with us.
