Maxi-Cosi Convertible Car Seat Canopy

This item is discontinued.
Your baby will enjoy your rides together even more with the Cosi Convertible Car Seat Canopy. It secures easily into place on both Vello and Pria Convertible Car Seats to block the sun and provide a rear-facing child some welcome shade. It also features a flip-out visor that lets you extend the canopy further for extra protection when needed.

Simple and Effective
June 26, 2023
Quick, easy install. Keeps the sun out of baby's eyes. I know some people said they didn't like that they couldn't see their baby in the mirror but I have baby in the middle and a mirror on the side headrest, angled at him and can see him just fine!
  • Takes 5 seconds to slip around the headrest and doesn't attach to the seat
  • I imagine if you have a small vehicle this can obstruct the view of the middle of your back windshield

This little shade is a great tool to have, just line it up and baby is shaded plus entertained staring at the shade in front of their head!

I always hate transitioning baby from infant seat to convertible because there’s no sun shade and I feel like they don’t nap as well without it. Problem solved! This has been great! It doesn’t stay on permanently but that’s fine. I just attach it when I know baby is going to nap. It takes .5 seconds to attach. It does a great job. Highly recommend!

Best car seat accessory
December 1, 2021
I hope every car seat has this option. This is the best car seat accessory.
My kid love it. She hope to have this canopy on the other car seat too! However, I bought another brand of car seat before this one. I cannot find canopy for that one.
I notice that there are some reviews said kids can move it so it's not good for those families. I think it's maybe more friendly for toddlers. I bought this when my kid around 1.5 years old. I told her the sun is burning, she needs it. So every time she feels the sunshine she would pull it down to cover her face. It's removable was actually a good thing for us.
  • Removeable
  • not compatible to other brand of carseat

Pointless, save your money
November 10, 2021
I bought this to help my daughter who was rear facing, but 1) she hated it being so close to her head, 2) it was super flimsy, and 3) it completely blocked my view of her rear-facing.

I'd recommend saving the little money and get window visors or shades instead.

Can't see rear facing baby
November 6, 2020
I thought this was a good idea but I can't see my baby in the mirror when this is in. I also don't like that I have to remove it every time I want to put her and or take her out. Also, it's black so it gets hot on top and underneath. Do not recommend. You're better off with brica window shades.
  • Blocks the sun
Best Uses
  • In the box
  • Doesn't retract, you have to remove every time or else they'll hit their head.
  • It's black and hot.
  • Can't see child if they're rear facing.

Gets the job done

Tricky to place. Cannot really do this with child in seat then it’s hard to get them in with how large it is. Can’t see child in mirror with this on which is ok but good to know. Hard to take off too. It serves the purpose for car naps and don’t really have other options but FYI

Too bulky
January 23, 2020
I loved the idea of buying this when we transitioned from our bucket seat to the Maxi-Cosi Pira 85 Max. I wanted to block my kids eyes from the sun. Unfortunately, it completely blocks our ability to see our child in the rear view mirror. I would not recommend this product.
  • Too big to see child in rear view mirror.

It does the job and keeps sun out of baby’s face, however it doesn’t really click and connect to car seat, it just gets tucked in on top and can be pulled out by strong baby.

Just no use for it
September 27, 2019
Having to remove this EACH time I take my son in and out, is a headache! Yes it is easy to do, but when your baby is crying or being difficult to buckle in, it can be a hassle. Plus, he now knows how to pull it off! It would be nice if it were retractable like the canopy on the iris m-air. Maybe even make it attachable, like with 2 buttons, so baby can't remove it on their own. My son is 10 months old with a good grip. Lol. It is good when he's sleeping but other than that, not usable.
  • Shade for sleeping babies
Best Uses
  • When baby falls asleep and it's extra bright out.
  • Baby can remove it.
  • Hassle to remove when baby goes in and out.

Great Canopy
July 30, 2019
I like this canopy because its a good size canopy and blocks the sun from my toddlers face.
  • Big canopy, fully blocks sun from face, easy to remove and install.
  • I dislike that I have to Remove shade every time baby goes in car seat and out. But not a big deal.

This definitely isn't the retractable canopy like in the infant car seats - it's either on or it's off: no adjusting. Happily, it goes on and off very easily.
  • Easy on and off
  • Not in any way adjustable; Creates a blind spot in the vehicle.

I thought this would be a good idea, but I can't see my daughter in the mirror when it's being used, and it doesn't seem to help keep sunlight out of her face. It just sits in the back of my SUV.
  • Easy to use
Best Uses
  • If light primarily comes into vehicle from the side window (does nothing for rear window light).
  • Doesn?t keep sun out of child?s face.
  • Blocks view, so I can?t see my child in mirror while driving.
  • Gets in way when putting kid in seat and taking them out.

  • Slides on great
Best Uses
  • Convertible car seat w/head rest
  • Thick /bulky

Maxi cosi canopy
October 26, 2017
I purchased this when I transitioned my 8 month old from an infant car seat into a toddler convertible car seat. I thought it would be good to have the extra shade when she falls asleep in the car, like the infant seat. It fell short, big time! It came very quickly, it's packaged nicely and the installation instructions were easy to follow
  • Lots of extra shade and makes it very cozy for when she falls asleep in the car.
  • It doesn't collapse backward gracefully at all! It's bulky and annoying to have it attached and getting baby in and out of the seat. I end up getting frustrated and just pull it off to get my baby out or put her in her seat.

Amazing Seat
June 19, 2016
This car seat is FAB!!! The material is so soft and plush. It isn't the kind of material that heats up, which is perfect for here in the desert!!!!!
  • Extras***
  • Ok... So I purchased the extra shade for the top of the car seat and it is amazing!!!! It completely blocks out the sun and it is super cute! Must have!!!!
Best Uses
  • Convertible
  • Soft, plush and Yummy (Sorry I am a texture person!)
  • Reclines
  • Sets up high
  • When it is in the recline position, it is very bulky in my Sienna- 2nd row.
  • Harness tightener cord- is very hard to tighten:(

very functional

I love that this canopy is offered because I was hesitant to transition my daughter from her infant seat as she hates the sun in her eyes. This solves the problem and is very easy to install (no hooks or anything, it has flaps that basically tuck between the seat and headrest). I do find that it is difficult to maneuver your child in and out of the car seat without removing it first but I don't find it a huge issue. Would recommend.
