Thumbs down Terrible CL find (Marvin)

I found a really bad seat on craigslist.

It's a narnia with a cat and no manuel. i might buy it since it's only missing the crotch strap. my dh could fix something to make it work i'm sure.

http://neworleans.craigslist.org/bab/832291299.html

quick, flag it before anyone else can see!

PS: Is this Marvin's listing??

Re: Terrible CL find

I think you may have found it. This guy knows too much about seats to actually try to sell this.

Re: Terrible CL find

Okay, I saw that this morning, but didn't read the whole ad. I was expecting to see Marvin in the picture, and when I didn't, continued on.

Sorry haven't been following this CL thing but after reading that ad it has to be whatever you all are looking for.

There are no basements in Slidel. And they sure as heck wouldn't be cool or dry.

Re: Terrible CL find

That listing has Marvin written all over it, and I sure hope the cat doesn't get ahold of Marvin.

Re: Terrible CL find

I'm really excited about a seat that has a teether, I've never had one before. Plus, I love the smell of cat litter dust, and the stickers are legibil. $39 S & H is quite the bargain too!

I did post over on the blog about this one, but it still says my comment is awaiting moderation. I posted it right after I started this thread here.

I found it by going to New Orleans CL and I just scrolled down the baby list, it was pretty close to the top still. I think it's listed as a baby seat instead of a car seat, so it's harder to search for.

It is pretty dorky, but I was avoiding doing other work, so it was a good way to procrastinate.
