The Nuna Tavo travel system is safe, comfortable, and fashionable. It has got your child covered from infant to young child. Travel systems are very convenient for busy parents.

If your little one is still in an infant car seat a travel system can help you transition from your vehicle to your stroller seamlessly. What else do we love about the Nuna Tavo travel system? Let’s dive in.

Compatibility

The Tavo Stroller is only compatible with Nuna Pipa car seats. The Pipa Lite car seat is only compatible with the Pipa base and cannot be installed in a vehicle without the base.

True Lock System

The Pipa base boasts its True Lock system with installation confirmation indicators. For extra security, you can use the base with the included steel-reinforced stability leg.

The Nuva Tavo folds easily and perfectly, which can’t be said for all travel systems!

The base allows for multiple positions to accommodate your baby and varying seat angles. The bubble level indicators will let you know when you have achieved the perfect install.

Super Easy Installation

Nuna TavoInstalling the base in your car is simple and quick. It only requires two steps and takes less than five seconds. Simply attach the LATCH connectors to your car’s anchors and check that the confirmation indicators are green.

Finally, check the recline bubble indicator and adjust your stability leg if necessary. The Tavo stroller is the third component of the travel system. This stroller will last your little one through their early childhood due to its spaciousness and durability.

The child seat has four recline options and lays back nearly flat. The entire stroller is outfitted with weather-resistant materials to keep your little one cool and dry. 

User-Friendly Stroller 

Parents will appreciate the leatherette lined handlebar, oversized storage basket, and one-touch braking system. The Tavo stroller’s canopy is truly state of the art. It is quite large to provide the maximum amount of 50+ UPF protection. It has a flip-out sun visor and can be removed all together.

The one-hand fold system is what stands out for this stroller

Other convenience features include a simple one-hand fold system with trolley function, a quick-release convertible harness, and an optional infant insert and armbar.  Combined, the Tavo stroller and Pipa Lite infant seat provide you and your family with the ultimate stylish and safe travel system.

Nuna Tavo Travel System vs. Nuna Pipa Lite LX

Nuna Tavo Travel System vs. Nuna Pipa Lite LX

Just as the Tavo Travel system and Mixx Travel system vary due to the stroller model, the Tavo system and Pipa Lite LX system vary because of their car seat components.

Both systems feature the Tavo stroller. The Pipa Lite LX car seat is, unsurprisingly, an upgrade to the Pipa Lite. It includes additional comfort features such as Merino Wool and TENCEL fabrics that wick away moisture and a dream drape in addition to the canopy. 

Similarities

  • Weight and height limits
  • Flame resistant fabrics, aerospace aluminum, Aeroflex foam
  • Canopy with eyeshade
  • Leatherette lined handle
  • Crumple zone and side-impact protection

Differences

  • The Pipa Lite incorporates Merino wool and TENCEL to keep your child cool and dry

System Components 

This travel system consists of three components: the Tavo stroller, the Pipa Lite infant car seat, and the Pipa series base. One astonishing feature of this travel system is the lack of adapters. The car seat clicks directly onto the stroller’s child seat for a secure connection.

The Pipa Lite car seat is considered to be exceptionally safe. The combination of materials, including Aeroflex foam, aerospace aluminum, and the steel-reinforced base allows this seat to meet and exceed all safety standards. 

Side Impact Protection 

The Pipa Lite also includes side impact protection, and incorporated crumple-zone in the leg area to absorb shock, and fire-resistant fabrics. The car seat is a breeze to carry thanks to its lightweight and comfortable leatherette carrying handle.

Car seat occupants will be kept safe and cozy with the removable memory foam headrest and micro-knit breathable fabrics. Both parents and little ones will appreciate the UPF 50+ extendable canopy that has an extra segment of fabric that flips out to provide additional eyeshade.

The car seat attaches seamlessly to the TAVO stroller without the use of adapters, just click it onto the child seat and go. When it is time to transition back to your vehicle, click the car seat onto the installed base. 

Customer Reviews for The Nuna Tavo

In general, parents approve of all of the fine details and craftsmanship that went into the Nuna Tavo travel system. Both the stroller and car seat were crafted with parents in mind, as is apparent in the one-handed fold and simple base installation.

Also, parents liked that the stroller is exceedingly easy to push thanks to its progressive suspension technology. There were not many dislikes, but the price was certainly one of them.

However, when compared to other high-end luxury brands, the cost is not outrageous. The only other con was the lack of a reversible option for the child seat. This can be remedied by upgrading to the Nuna Mixx.
