Maxi-Cosi Car Seats – Maxi Cosi Pebble Pro vs Tinca.

I’m sure you have heard of the brand Maxi-Cosi before if you live in Europe. It is a famous brand and their strollers and car seats are well known to many parents.

For this review, I choose to write about two Maxi-Cosi car seats. These car seats are chosen by me. I will review the two that I think are the best from the brand and then choose which of these are best suited to everyone or many.

I will only review 0+ Car seats, which means only for babies. See this link for more information on car seats.

Both of these car seats are lightweight and are suitable for your baby up to 12 months. You can use a base with it to ensure more safety and comfort.

Pebble Pro i-Size car seat.

  • It’s tested and shown to provide safety and comfort for your little one.
  • Softly padded materials are designed on the sides to give your baby additional protection. Designed to withstand any impact it might endure.
  • Just use the base if it’s in the car to provide a better experience.
  • The car seat carrier/handle is easy to grip which makes it easy to carry the seat.

Tinca i-Size car seat.

  • This one is also tested and it has proven to give safety and comfort to your baby.
  • Extremely lightweight at just 3.2kg
  • Fits with a base. The 3wayfix.
  • More protection is offered from the seat sides, designed to keep your baby secure.

This amazing car seat is good to use for your daily life activities with your little one. It has a baby-high inlay, and an extra cushion on top of the seat to provide a better sleeping position.

It enables your baby to sleep as flat as possible, therefore protecting their head and neck. A head cushion is also designed with it. Perfect for the baby’s tiny and fragile head.

The pebble pro-i-size car seat has a deep seat and absorbing side materials that protect your baby from any kind of danger. The deep seat also hides your baby which gives them a quiet and safe environment.

They will be able to sleep without any disturbances, which is what we all want. This Maxi-Cosi car seat is compatible with all Maxi-Cosi and Quinny strollers.

Fix the seat on the stroller by just using one hand and it can also be detached with the same method. The seat is open which is different from other car seats that a more shielded.

The open seat makes it easy to place your baby and take them out easier. It can be fixed on the 3wayfix. A good base that enables your baby a footrest.

The Pebble Pro i-Size car seat only offers rear-facing, but this option is, of course, the best position for you and your baby. A belt is designed with it to provide another way of protecting your baby. It’s a 3-point harness belt. See what a 3 point belt is here.

The seat also comes in a variety of colours. Not only the standard black colour. Match it up with any other colour for your strollers. Your options are not limited.

Another i-Size car seat that protects your baby and gives them comfort. It’s easy to carry the Tinca i-Size car seat because of its weight being light.

You won’t have difficulties carrying the seat upstairs if you live in a flat or have stairs at home. The car seat is compatible with almost all Maxi-Cosi strollers. Providing a perfect Travel System.

This Maxi-Cosi car seat also is installed with an inlay which like I stated above provides protection and safety for your baby’s neck and head.

The impact materials that are installed with this seat are more improved which makes it safer for the baby. It will take on any impact and your baby won’t be harmed.

A large UV sun canopy is designed with it. Protecting them from the elements, especially from the sun. A seat cover, the perfect accessory to this seat.

It can be washed which makes it last longer. You will need the seat cover every day if you have a newborn and even for older babies. It all depends on your little one.

A variety of colours are available for you to use. Just like the Pebble Pro i-Size car seat. It’s rear-facing only and a belt is installed with it.

Suitable from birth up to 12 months which is usually the age a baby can sit upright and support themselves.

Similarities & Differences.


  • Both of these seats have the i-Size protection and they have been both tested to provide safety and comfort.
  • They both have inlays to protect the head and neck.
  • Absorbing materials on the side to protect your baby from impact.
  • Suitable from birth up to 12 months.
  • Rear-facing only.
  • Both a lightweight, but the Tinca i-Size car seat is lighter.
  • The seats can be installed with a base in your car.
  • An easy to grip and adjustable able carrier/handle.
  • Both offer a variety of colours. The colour’s shade does differ.
  • The Maxi-Cosi seats are installed with a belt.
  • Both seats are open.



  • The Pebble Pro i-Size car seat is compatible with all Maxi-Cosi and Quinny strollers, but the other seat is only compatible with the Maxi-Cosi strollers and not all of them.
  • The Tinca i-Size car seat has a canopy which the other seat doesn’t have.
  • The Tinca seat also has a seat cover and not the Pebble Pro i-Size car seat.


  • The Tinca i-Size car seat is only compatible with Maxi-Cosi strollers and not even all of them like I stated above. It limits your options. So you can only use it if you already have a Maxi-Cosi stroller.  Check if it matches your stroller before buying it.
  • Without a sun canopy, your baby is more vulnerable to the suns UV. Even less protected from the other elements. If you buy the Pebble Pro i-Size car seat you will miss out on having a canopy.
  • The Pebble seat does not have a seat cover.
  • The car seats can’t be used in other stroller brands besides the ones I have mentioned. Your options are limited, which can be a con for many.

Which One Is The Best?

Both of these amazing car seats offer many features and their design are modern. I like them both. They are similar in some ways, but also different at the same time.

Even though the Tinca i-Size car seat offers you a canopy and seat cover it’s not compatible with all of the Maxi-Cosi Strollers. The Pebble Pro i-Size car seat is compatible but lacks these two features.

Hard to choose which is best and well suited for everyone or at least many. The Pebble Pro i-Size car seat has to be the one. It only wins because of its compatibility.

These Maxi-Cosi car seats are perfect. Get ready for many adventures with your little one or little ones. See reviews on other car seats and reviews on Maxi-Cosi strollers.

  1. While you prefer the Pebble Pro because of its compatibility with other brands, I would prefer the Tinca because of its lightweight structure and canopy. Since these two items would normally be purchased together, I wouldn’t see the compatibility as being a problem.  In either case, it’s important to note that both these seats are both high quality and that’s what’s important at the end of the day.  Thank you for this great review!

    • Hi Cynthia. Yes, they are both high quality products, and depending on what you think is important your choice can be different. I just thought the car seat being compatible with many brands its something thats important.
