The distinctive features of the brand's products are impeccable quality and expressive recognizable style. Specialists of the company pay maximum attention to high requirements for manufactured products, and a team of professional designers tries to give each product exquisite features.
Children's car seats from this manufacturer are not yet represented as widely as, for example, strollers, but the growing demand stimulates the growth of supply. The theme of today's review is the car seat "Inglesina Marco Polo", which has already acquired a lot of fans.
This child car seat is installed on the seat of the car with the help of regular seat belts, passed through the base. The testimonies testify that if everything is done correctly, the chair is fixed rigidly enough, does not stagger or hang around during the ride. This is important not only to ensure the comfort of a small passenger, but also for its safety.
Inglezina Polo is a car seat designed for carrying children from birth. In order for the baby in the first months of life to be comfortable, there is a special insert for newborns.
Soft comfortable seat has a medium size. Its width (inside) is 25 cm, depth - 28 cm, and height along the back - 53 cm. The chair weighs 9.3 kg.
The seat is very easy to fold. In total there are 6 positions of inclination of the back, including almost completely horizontal.
Car seat "Inglesin Marco Polo" is equipped with five-point seat belt system, which will securely fix the baby, like inside a protective cocoon. Vertical shoulder straps have soft pads, which can be removed if necessary. In height, they can be adjusted in three positions. In the armrest area of armchair there are plastic hooks on which you can throw belts during the landing and disembarkation of the child so that they do not interfere.
Car seat "Inglesin Marco Polo" is certified in accordance with the safety standard ECE R44 / 04. It has reinforced side protection in the form of large soft inserts in the area of the legs and head.
The standard equipment of the chair includes only a large soft insert for the newborn, rounded back angle. It is sewn from the same textile as the upholstery of the chair, and on the underside there is a foam rubber insert. If necessary, it can be removed.
Handle for carrying the chair, cup holder and hood are not included in the package. But the car seat "Inglesin Marco Polo" can easily be carried with both hands. If desired, you can buy branded summer textiles.
Fabrics and materials
The upholstery of the chair is sewn qualitatively, the thread does not stick out, there are no untreated edges. The slots for seat belt belts are carefully heat treated, so that the seamed edges do not crumble. The material from which the upholstery is made is 100% polyester. Probably, in the heat it will soar, therefore the manufacturer recommends to acquire a replaceable set of summer textiles. This is especially true for children of the first year of life.
The inner surface of the lining on the belts has a rubberized base. This prevents them from slipping.
The cover sits on the car seat tightly, it does not hang out. In order to remove it, it is necessary to unscrew the safety belt locks located on the side with a screwdriver. The cover with which the Inglesin Marco Polo car seat is equipped can be washed in warm water by hand or in the automatic machine in the "Delicate washing" mode.
For children from birth to three months, a "face-to-go" transport mode is recommended. This is due to the fact that while the spine is just beginning to grow and develop, severe braking can be dangerous for the child's neck. To avoid injury, do not put the baby face in the course of the car. The chair in this position is very easy to install. It can carry children weighing up to 18 kg.
The "forward facing" position is recommended for passengers weighing from 9 to 18 kg. Setting the chair in this position will take longer and may seem more complicated. All the nuances of the installation are described in detail in the instructions (in Russian). Car seat "Inglesin Marco Polo" is very securely attached thanks to special locks and levers for pulling the seat belts of the machine.
