The alpha™ i-Size safe and certified infant car seat that holds the newest and highest safety standard in the world (R129).
Rear face longer for babies from 40-87 cm with alpha™, offering your newborn traveller a highly protective and safety certified cushy ride, whether it’s in the vehicle, on the buggy as a travel system, or simply carrying your wee one into the house.
Delivering only the very best in world class safety and design, alpha™ provides superior head, neck and all over body protection for your bub, due to its thick EPP foam for maximum impact absorption and first ever standardised side impact testing. This i-Size infant car seat also comes included with an ISOFIX base that allows you to safely secure into the back seat of your vehicle, or if you don’t have ISOFIX anchor points in your vehicle, no problem, alpha™ includes vehicle seatbelt routing guides to secure the infant car seat in place without the base. With its ergonomically shaped handle, alpha™ is a breeze to carry in and out of the house, transfer from vehicle to buggy and most importantly for comfortably leaving the hospital gates.
No doubt you’ll also be looking closely at investing in a buggy as well at this time, more so to ensure the brand is the same as your infant car seat or they fit together to create a travel system. Rest assured, alpha™ conveniently attaches to any phil&teds® buggy with its own dedicated infant car seat adapters (sold separately), great for peace of mind.
