    Re: foonf?

    According to this link, they applied for a US trademark for it in April.
    http://socialmedia.trademarkia.com/foonf-85293036.html

    Someone asked on their facebook page about a US release date, and this was their reply on May 25th:

    "clek Hi Jill, in a couple months we will be able to release all seat details to you. We are planning for an early spring 2012 retail availability in stores. Thanks for asking."

    And the name makes me think of a little fluffy dog sneezing.

    Yup, for the five-point harness. I kind of like it although it does sound a little dirty

    You should probably get that checked out by a doctor.
