How is the Urban Kanga certified?

Does the Urban Kanga fit in the middle seat of the back of the car?
Yes it does. However, it needs to be installed with a three-point seat belt. As long as it is installed with a three-point retractable seat belt in its forward facing position, the Urban Kanga can be used in the middle, left, or right of the car.

Is the Urban Kanga seat cover washable?

I'm having issues with my Urban Kanga. What do I do?
Our team at Taxi Baby wants to make sure that you are able to use your car seat with ease of mind. If you've purchased your Urban Kanga from Taxi Baby, feel free to contact us for help with installation or any product-related questions!

Is the Urban Kanga airplane-approved?
The Urban Kanga is within carry-on limitations set by most aircraft. Generally, the Urban Kanga can be brought onto the aircraft, but we recommend checking the policies with your airline or calling them to check. Please note that while it can be brought on as carry-on luggage, it cannot be used in-flight. This is because the Urban Kanga has to be installed with a three-point retractable seat belt, while airplanes are only fitted with two-point lap belts.

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.

What is the shelf life of the Urban Kanga?
European seats are not required to specify an expiry date, but all plastic products degrade over time. The manufacturer recommends 1 seat = 1 child. Generally, it is not advisable to hand seats down for a multitude of reasons, even though there is no direct indication that there will be any degradation after 4-5 years. Based on this, we do not recommend using your Urban Kanga after it's older than 6 years.

The carry bag that came with my Urban Kanga is broken/torn! Can you send me a replacement?
Take some photos of your damaged Urban Kanga carry bag and reach out to us - if you bought your Urban Kanga from us, we'll send you a replacement. Please note that we only offer carry bag replacements if your bag is damaged from wear and tear. In the case of misplaced carry bags, we do not offer replacements.
