Nuna Convertible Car Seats: From Newborn to Toddler to Big Kid

If your little one is outgrowing their infant car seat or you’re interested in skipping an infant car seat altogether, a convertible car seat is definitely on your shopping list. At Magic Beans, we match hundreds of families with their ideal convertible car seats every year. We’ve noticed over the years that Nuna is always a favorite with our customers - and for good reason! Nuna made their mark in the US with their famous Nuna PIPA infant car seat. Years later, they began expanding their car seat line up and introduced their first convertible car seat, the Nuna RAVA. The Nuna RAVA quickly became one of the most popular convertible car seats in the US. As expected Nuna delivered in quality, safety and convenience. Through the years Nuna has continued to evolve the RAVA and their car seat assortment. Following the launch of the RAVA, Nuna then introduced the Nuna EXEC All-in-One car seat which can be used from birth to booster. The newest addition to the Nuna convertible car seat line-up is the Nuna REVV. The REVV is the most innovative to date, offering a 360 degree swivel design. For parents looking for the best protection paired with superior quality Nuna is an obvious choice- but deciding on the right Nuna model is not always so easy. We’re here to break it down for you!

Spring Touch shoulder belt guides make it easy for “big kids” to independently and properly buckle themselves in.


The Nuna EXEC provides a layer of anti-rebound protection not found on the RAVA. The EXEC features an integrated anti-rebound panel that stabilizes the car seat and prevents upward rotation in the event of a crash. When the car seat is turned forward facing, this anti-rebound panel becomes an adjustable leg rest to give extra support to dangling legs. Ventilation panels and knit fabric keep the seat cool and comfortable on long road trips. The EXEC one-ups the RAVA in convenience by providing magnetic harness holders.
