    monterey - how pink is pink?

    just curious how pink the pink monterey is? ds wants one, and even though i dont think it's going to work four us, i'm going to order it and see.
    i never pegged him for a pink guy, and i'm surprised but fine that he is (pink was never a fave of mine - or his for that matter), but i am a little worried for him, especially since we are hoping to get years out of this seat (he's 6 now).
    so just how pink is pink? should i try to talk him out of it just to save him tons of grief? or is that buying into the whole gender-specific color thing?

    I would let him have the pink. It was originally a "boy" color anyway

    I did - we ordered this evening. I was just kind of wondering what kind of pink it was. Guess I'll find out soon enough!
    Did you mean pink in general was originally a "boy" color? Guess all my talk about how there are no "boy" or "girl" colors got through to him! Hope he can keep his "who cares, I like it" attitude for as long as we have the seat. I actually agree with him that it's the nicest choice, even if I tend towards a more black/grey palate myself.
    Anyway, thank you.

    I think it's similar to the Britax Frontier, which is most definitely PINK lol. My 9yo charge just got one after begging for a pink seat for a year, and he is thrilled. He is ALL BOY but loooves his seat and has even named it Pinky and begged to take it on family vacation, lol.

    Uh... no real point to this except to contribute to the pink/boy discussion. One of the other kids (his brother maybe?) even told him it was a girl color and he put them in their place. I was super-pleased, we definitely roll with the "if you like it you like it."

    You can always order replacement covers -- or swap covers with someone -- if he outgrows it down the line.

    Honestly you really do not see much pink when there is a child in the seat.

    I would call it princess pink. Its not barbie pink- IMO anyway.

    I think this is close to true color, on my monitor anyway.

    Re: monterey - how pink is pink?

    pink was for boys and blue was for girls... up until Queen Elizabeth had Prince Charles... she changed the trend by choosing to do a blue nursery... people followed suit.

    there are many theories as to why that had been the trend before... pink being from red and considered a "hot" or male color, where blue is calmer and thereby more feminine...

    or it could be because back when clothes first were being colored, the red dyes were more expensive, so it was easier to get for men as they made the money.
