Difference comparison between Axkid Minikid and Axkid Move

Due to the popularity of Axkid car seats this is a question we get asked all the time so in this blog post we will describe in detail how the Axkid Minikid and Axkid Move Children's 25kg Rear Facing car seats are similar and different!

Both the Axkid Minikid and Axkid Move car seats are Swedish Plus Tested and have the ASIP (Axkid Side Impact Protection).

The Swedish Plus Test is one of the hardest tests to pass and unlike the standard car seat crash tests, it is voluntary. Plus Tested car seats ensure that your child is not exposed to exposed to excessive head and neck load forces during a frontal collision. The Plus Test has such strict requirements that forward facing child car seats would not be able to comply with them.

Size wise the Axkid Minikid and Axkid Move have similar car seat shells. For both seats the weight limit is 25kg (approx age 6) and the height limit of 125cm is a guide as children have different torso heights. There is no lower weight limit for the Minikid, the Move has a 9kg lower weight limit: see our description below for more information.

The Axkid Minikid has two additional features: automatically adjusting harness / headrest which allows the harness and headrest to be at the correct position each time a child uses the Minikid, just by pulling the 5 point harness strap. This is a unique feature of the Minikid and is also useful if more than one child needs to use the car seat at different times.The second is the self-tightening Minikid tether straps that tension automatically allowing you to install it with ease also.

As a cheaper alternative to the Minikid, the Move has all the safety of a Minkid (Swedish Plus Tested with ASIP), similar car seat shell, up to 4 recline options and is a fantastic car seat also plus a great option for a second car seat.
