    Canadian Tire is in the title
    The Apramo is a backless booster, similar in style to the Harmony Literider in the US.

    Thanks, I saw Canadian Tire, so Canadian! LOL I wasn't sure where you heard about the sale, and wanted to see a pic of the booster seats?

    Never heard of that brand. Wondering it's ratings, fit etc?

    And, which Turbo booster HBB or LB?

    But have not seen a flyer from them & their site has a current flyer on it...

    Re: Apramo $15, Turbo $53 Canadian Tire

    The Apramo is pretty new. Fit wise, it is shaped very similarly to the Harmony Literider, so I would think that fit would be similar as well. For the Turbo I assume HBB since I'm fairly certain that the LBB are less than $50. I should be getting my CT flyer today or tomorrow, so I should be able to check then.

    Sorry Tam, I should have been more specific. Here's the Apramo:

    The Turbo is High Back.

    Unfortunately you can't look at the flyer online ahead of time.

    Thanks so much! If I had the flyer, I'd have known! LOL

    Looks like a nice seat, certainly the right price for a spare...wonder how it compares to the LB turbo booster.

    Here is hoping that I get my flyers early today to satisfy my curiosity.

    Is the Apramo narrow and light? Looking for a LBB for travel and carpooling.

    TIA

    If the website price is $14.99 you can always have your store price-match that. Our store is notorious for having prices higher than every other town nearby. They will price-match if the customer points out the discrepancy.

    Really? I'll have to try that again. I DID point out a discrepancy and was basically told it was the price of living in a small town. If you put in *our* CT, the website price changes . Yes, our store sucks. Oh, and I got a rain cheque for a CA (just for fun), and was told to keep phoning to see if it was in stock. YEAH RIGHT! Like it's ever going to be in stock there, LOL.

    It is definitely light, and I think it is narrow too. I'm not too familiar with boosters, so I'm not totally sure. I have one, and could measure it if you want.

    Re: Apramo $15, Turbo $53 Canadian Tire

    I saw the Apramo yesterday at CT and didn't particularly care for it. However, for $15 I'd grab one to have as a spare.
    When I was there, they were still marked at $24.99 so didn't.............

    They just don't feel "solid" to me, but that doesn't mean they're any less safe or effective........

    Apparently the CT e-mails lie. The Apramo is only on sale tomorrow & Monday.

    Yes, the paper flyer is correct, however -- and if you find a nice manager, they will give it to you "yesterday". My DH got it yesterday for the sale price.

    Its OK, should be fine as a travel and back-up booster.

    I had DH pick one up for us too.

    Not sure it'll fit into the car any better than a backless Turbo does, but it's an awesome price for a space anyhow.
