    SKJP has a new name, new seats - Diono RXT

    Carseatblog just posted "KIM Update: New combo seat and booster coming from Diono (formerly known as Sunshine Kids Juvenile Products)" on their FB page.

    Re: SKJP has a new name, new seats

    Innnteresting. Maybe that is part of what all the clearancing was about? I'm especially interested to see the combo seat.

    Thanks, Pixels!

    Re: SKJP has a new name, new seats

    Always excited to hear about new seats! Especially a combo seat since I have 2 kids (potentially) that use those.

    How do you pronounce Diono....sounds like a dinosaur....lol

    I found a web site with their new name, but there's nothing on it yet. http://www.dionocarseat.net/

    Re: SKJP has a new name, new seats

    Diono?


    Is that Die-oh-no? Dee-oh-no? Dyo-no? Dee-ah-no?

    This is going to be another company name frequently mispronounced, I'm sure.We'll have mispronunciations of at least the following:
    • Graco
    • Britax
    • Chicco
    • Recaro
    • Diono




    Maybe they wanted to join the trend of companies ending in "o."
    • Graco
    • Evenflo
    • Chicco
    • Recaro
    • Diono
    • Cosco

    Okay, I know how to say Britax and Chicco properly, but what about the rest?

    ETA: if they release that pink polka dot cover for the Radian, I am so keeping mine.

    Some people say "Grack-oh" for Graco, "Ree-care-oh" for Recaro, and you know about Chicco and Britax. I'm sure this one will also be mispronounced. I am not sure how to pronounce it!

    Re: SKJP has a new name, new seats

    Oooh can't wait to see what they come out with.

    I wonder if the name change has anything to do with all the bad press associated with SK and Radian SL?

    I wonder if this name sprung from the "I dunno" about the SL problems campaign...

    Re: SKJP has a new name, new seats

    I've been asked to tell people not to call SKJP with inquiries on the new name or product until they make an official press release in a week or two. In the mean time, here's a photo. The new product is a Radian that converts to booster mode with semi-adjustable base width. More details to come!

    lol, they know us well. So it's based on the Radian? Does it still rf (is it a 3 in 1), or just a combo?

    Yes this!

    Wow those pics look like an XTSL on steroids.... very cool!

    If this is essentially an XTSL that can then be used in booster mode i think i may be in again with SK/Diono

    Re: SKJP has a new name, new seats

    The display says convertible + booster, so it must be a 3 in 1.
