Can I use the Urban Kanga car seat in an aircraft?
You can carry the Urban Kanga as carry on luggage on to most aircraft (subject to airline policies), however it is not suitable for use in-flight. The reason being is that the Urban Kanga requires a 3 point retractable seat belt in order to function correctly. Airplanes are fitted with 2 point lap belts and are therefore not suitable for use with the Urban Kanga.
What are the differences between the Urban Kanga and Cosco Scenera NEXT?
We've summarised the key differences between these two car seats (please refer to the table below). There is a significant lifestyle difference between the two seats - The Cosco is great if you plan to use a compatible stroller and allows you to have the child buckled in the car seat before the taxi arrives - then, just transfer child+Cosco into the taxi, secure the Cosco and away you go.
The Kanga needs to be installed in the vehicle before the child is buckled into it. This means the child needs to be safely buckled into a stroller, supervised by a companion, or waiting for you inside the taxi while you install the Kanga - then you can buckle the child into the Kanga. This can add a little 'loading time' once the taxi has arrived. However, if your child doesn't like sitting in the car seat while you're out and about, letting them sit in the stroller seat instead might make the Kanga more suited to your family.
What are the folded dimensions of the Urban Kanga?
When folded, the dimensions are: L 58cm, W 34cm, D 17cm at the top and 18cm at the bottom.
Can the Urban Kanga fit in my stroller basket?
We've had success fitting it in the basket of some of the larger prams like the Baby Jogger City Select and Mountain Buggy Duet, but it's usually a bit too big for regular pram baskets. Another option is to hang the Urban Kanga's carry bag from the handle of your stroller.
Will the Urban Kanga fit on my stroller?
The Kanga is not designed to be used in the seating position of a stroller, or attach to a stroller with adapters (if you are specifically looking for this feature, consider the Cosco Scenera NEXT). However, many parents have managed to 'hack' the Kanga onto their stroller for mobility and convenience. We call these #strollerhacks, and most require the use of our #strollerhack pack which includes a small luggage strap (regular luggage straps are too long for this purpose), bungee cord and bungee loop. Most #strollerhacks mimic the mechanism of the Mountain Buggy Nano's universal car seat adapter, which is effectively and in-build luggage strap.
Here are some Urban Kanga #strollerhacks we've received so far. If you have one, please send it to us! If you can't find your stroller in the list, drop us an email, or give us a call on +65 8866 3351.
