    check out this one...

    i saw a woman with one a few weeks ago, she said it converts so easily, it's not a problem to use it in a taxi as a car seat!

    they will ship internationally and as far as i can tell will come to just over $400USD... about the same as some of the prams i looked at for my first.

    i know that i'd rather have the peace of mind knowing that my bubs is safe in the taxi as well as comfortable in his stroller!

    here's the link!!!

    Hi,

    We've chosen the bugaboo chameleon which can also be used with the Maxi Cosi- basically we've checked the price of the Maxi Cost in three locations- Bumps to Babes, Mothercare and 0/3. It costs approx. $1600 regardless of where you buy it- the difference in price between the three shops ranges from something like $10-80!

    Thanks for the info Beky.

    I also checked the same. At In any case, still a very expensive car seat compared with the PegPerego or Britax etc...

    Has anyone tried to use the MaxiCosi cabrio in a cab in Hong Kong? How easy/fast to attach it? I doubt HK cab drivers would be patient to wait that you attach it so I already resgined myself to have to attach the seat while the cab is moving - anyone having tried that? How easy?

    I am actually surprised that Hong Kong as a "world class city" does not enforce the use of car seat for babies - especially for taxi (forcing them to wait that you finish attaching the seat, that is alright if they want to charge - how much would that be? $10, $20? as compared with the safety of the most precious thing in your life...)

    I also agree that it is shocking that HK has no legislation enforcing the use of car seats for babies/young children!
    I know the Bugaboo Chameleon fits other brands of car seats; we chose the Maxi Cosi because it seems the easiest to get hold of in HK- but maybe the Qunny Buzz fits other types too?

    Good news,
    I bought the Quinny Zapp and Maxi Cosi Cabrio.
    There was a post a while back with concerns about fitting the Cabrio in a taxi, due to the length of the seat belts, so I took it out for a test run today in a private car and a taxi, and had no trouble fitting it in either with the belts.

    Re getting the taxi driver to wait. While you are standing on the foot path fitting the seat in to the belts, the taxi has no chioce but to wait really. You just need to plan ahead for where you get in / out, so there is room for the cab to pull over properly for you to do that, you couldn't really jump in or out quickly on a busy street.
