    I think so far Wal-Mart has only the Edgemont Dots. Although Wal-Mart in the U.S. has Alama, so perhaps we'll get it here as well since Graco followed the colour choices with TRU in the U.S. (Sonata and Spiral).

    Re: Alma My Ride

    I actually have yet to see a MR in a walmart. So they certainly are not in every walmart right now. and I've checked walmarts in 2 different provinces haha.

    I just bought the Sonata MR at BRU though, and had previously been told that they only had those on special order, not actually in stores, but mine was def in the store. Though I dont know anything about any of the stores getting Alma. But this site is probably going to be your best bet in terms of finding out

    Did they have a bunch of them? or was yours the only one? If yours was the only one, it could have been bought online then returned at the store and they are selling it rather than returning to the warehouse.

    They had a bunch from what the lady said. There was one on display and I was a little thrown off, so when I brought the ticket up to the till I asked her to confirm that it was infact the Sonata print in the back and that they were in fact instock.

    I bought the Edgemont Dots MyRide at Walmart in Edmonton last week. It was $25 cheaper than BRU.

    Then it would seem that Sonata is in stock at some stores (perhaps the store can opt to carry it or not?) and special order at others (most?).

    The biggest stores carry the Sonata, so my guess is the Newmarket, Vaughn Mills and Crossiron Mills stores all at least carry Sonata. They are known as "Babies R Us exclusive" stores .... the biggest in the country that carry most everything.
