    Just got off phone w/ Britax

    I just called Britax corp. inquiring about new Regent covers. She said that although Britax does usually come out with new cover patterns in the spring, the Sahara is the new pattern and if they do come out with a new pattern this spring it will also be very neutral. No girly or animals prints at all. Bummer, DD will have to deal with the Sahara. (her sister has a pretty britax; this is definitly going 2 cause some problems in the back seat). And for what its worth the rep. also said that even though the Parkway is listed 30 lbs+, she doesn't recommend it for kids under 40lbs or who are thin. She also said that they are shipping the same amount of Regents out daily as they are all there other car seats, the Regent is just in such a high demand and getting scooped up so quickly.

    I would question whether or not this CS rep knows what she's talking about (like Graco not knowing about the SS2 going to 50 pounds this spring).

    Sahara has been out forever, how can that be their "new" choice?

    Exactly. That seems strange to me.

    I would think they would consider "Classic" (ugh!!!) their "new" pattern, even if it is a limited edition. It is far newer than Sahara!!

    I was really looking forward to a girly/"cuter" print. Sahara has been out forever!

    I bet with all the demand for the Regent, they will be coming out with new cover choices sometime in the next year. Let's hope!!!
