Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

Thanks -- just out of curiosity (and I apologize if I should know this!), how did you get the seat?

Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

the coolest thing about this seat is that I bet we'll actually start to see them at seat checks... because of the cup holders! lol. People love cup holders... and when they compare this, to an AOE, they will go this direction!

Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

Gak, the first one's blurry and the second one I can't open!!!!

I must see! I must peer and examine!

Let's hear details? What's the rule on rearfacing, one inch of shell or to the tops of the ears? I don't see an ARB. Anything about rearfacing tethering or a foot prop? What's the install like??? OMG I'm drooling here!

Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

How on earth did you get it this soon?

In the other thread it said that they had a removable headrest- I'm guessing (from the picture) they mean that pillow? Interesting. Too bad the shell is short- but it should help with those 2 y/o who hit 35 lbs but still have shorter torsos. And it will hopefully prompt other manufactures to raise the RF weight limit.

Well I'm sure Brendan's mom will be answering soon, but when I called Graco today she said it would be the 1" rule.

How do you get to get these seats so soon? That is awseome!

I see pics now! Thank you!

I think I am disapointed :-( Oh well maybe it will help the younger kids that are heavier, but not so tall. :-)

Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

You know what- it looks like they based it off of the SS2/Cozycline. The shell looks maybe an inch shorter than the marathon? Maybe the seat is more contoured so it'll fit kids longer... hmmm....

Now we NEED a 40 lb Radian and True Fit .

Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

Exciting! I'll look forward to photos with munchkins in it. My knee-jerk reaction, seeing it next to the MA, is that it might not be tall enough to last my oversized DS through the 35-40lb range (although I doubt it'll come to Canada soon enough anyhow, so probably moot), but you never really know from just an uninstalled, unoccupied photo.

Re: Here is the new Graco seat!!

Yea all I can see is the comparison to the MA. I'd like to see the other pictures.

ETA: I'm dissapointed in the shell height. Very disappointed. But I hope that it spurs on the other manufacturers to test their seats to 40 lbs (Learning Curve and Sunshine Kids I'm talking to you) or come up with new designs, like how everyone came out with 35 lb limit seats after Britax got to 33.
