Combi Zeus

Combi Zeus Turn Car Seat

If looks were everything, the Combi Zeus Turn Car Seat may be giving the Orbit Baby and Nestt a run for their money. Comparable to many infant/toddler car seats, the Combi Zeus is $300, but affords many perks that the others don't.

For starters, it is suitable for infants as small as five pounds through toddlers weighing 40 pounds. Additionally, like the Orbit Baby and Nestt, parents can swivel the seat on the base, making it easy to load and unload your child for rear- or forward-facing positioning. For kids taking a long ride, parents and tots can take pleasure in the ability to recline the forward-facing seat into a more laid-back position — sounds like a bonus for lengthy plane rides or hourless road trips.

To read what some people's complaints are and watch a video of the fancy car seat,

While the Combi Zeus sounds like a dream, I have heard a few complaints. One mother said that after latching the seat into her car, the swivel-lock system failed and the seat repeatedly turned sideways as she drove — putting her tot's life in danger as children should be rear of forward facing. Others complained that the swivel mechanism is not easy to use making it more of a hassle than a convenience. Still, some brag it is the best seat on the market and offers ease beyond belief.

Check out the video and tell me what you think of the Combi Zeus!

Very few car seats are not FAA approved, but it is good to make sure before you get to the airport with your car seat. I only pointed it out here because the post incorrectly said this seat would be good for long planes rides. Here is a comparison chart for infant seats, only two not FAA approved: http://www.elitecarseats.com/catalog/product_matrix.jsp?groupId=18&categoryId=282&sortKey=NAME Here is one for convertible seats, only this one not approved http://www.elitecarseats.com/catalog/product_matrix.jsp?groupId=20&categoryId=283&ascending=true&sortKey=BRAND Booster seats that only use a seatbelt only are also not approved for use on a plane.

I love the idea of swiveling to get the child in and out but for $300, I want a seat that will get them past 40 lbs.

Mommy of Three- thanks for pointing that out. I didn't realize that certain car seats are FAA approved. Do you have a link to approved car seats? Thanks!

The Combi Zeus is NOT FAA approved which means it cannot be used on an airplane. Most convertible car seats now rear face until 35 pounds, which is so much safer.
