Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

Saw it today! Didn't take a pic, but it looks just like the blog photos - http://carseatblog.com/13059/abc-exp...ew-from-graco/

The one on the shelf was green/black. No shelf tag yet, so don't know the price. Looks like it has the same general shape as the regular TB, except with bigger side wings and more padding in the seat area. There was nice thick foam in the side wings, but this was weird, it's on the outside of the wings, away from the child.
Looks nice though!

ETA: So looked at it again yesterday. It's the same height as a regular turbo. It pretty much seems like a TB skeleton with some enhanced SIP and a nicer cover. There are screws in the armrests.

Have you noticed at Target the boys Graco seats are green/gray and the girls Graco seats are pink/brown?

If you have all girls/boys at least they would coordinate?

Re: Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

I wanna know if it goes taller than the regular TB and what the belt guides look like. I need the big open belt guides like the old TB's have for it to work in my 3rd row. Guess I'm going to Target tomorrow. :lol:

The belt guides looked identical to the old TB. It really looks like a regular TB at heart, just with bigger sidewings. I did not think to check the height. I think I would be surprised to find it any different than the old TB though.

I asked them a couple weeks ago if it would be any taller and they said it is the same height at the current Turbo Booster.

Re: Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

I hope my Target doesn't have it because if they do, I'll "have to" buy one. I've been waiting for it to come out! If there's green involved, that's even worse. Green is my son's absolute favorite color.

Re: Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

$80?! I probably shouldn't be shocked but I do hope that they continue selling the older style HB TB as well for people who can't afford to pay $80.

I also wonder if the new ones have the good old arm rest screws that get left out so often...

Re: Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

with the added features, I think 80 dollars is perfectly reasonable... compare it to the recaro vivo that has more features than the turbo, for instance.

Re: Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

Man. They have that extra little lip the newer TBs have. I need the belt guide like this.



I returned a TB because my belts in the 3rd row really are THAT picky. I guess I could always try it and return it if it doesn't work, but I don't have my hopes up.

Re: Graco Safety Surround Turbobooster at Target!

I love the orange, but that purple would look fantastic with the my Plum RXT. Decisions, decisions.

But for the price, I might as well get my beloved ProBooster.
