    Target's classic RA shell same size as older "classic" RAs?

    I know it sounds like a dumb question, but...well, are they the same size? I know DD's RA from 6 years ago had a pretty short shell.

    Trying to figure out if I should grab a MR or RA at the baby sale.

    A RA from 6 years ago is probably the 40# version, right? The roundabout50 at Target is larger and sized the same as the classic marathon. (ETA: the RA50 is similar in size to the MyRide.)

    The roundabout 50 has the same size shell as the Marathon or Decathlon (I actually think it's exactly the decathlon shell), so it's not as small as the classic roundabout. I'd guess you'd get about the same growing room in either seat. I LOVED my roundabout 50, but I Love the Myride too. I think I'd probably pick the myride out of the two if the price was right around the same (I'm not sure what the sale prices are).

    The classic RA and MR are both $100 at Target's baby sale...through 9/10, I think.
