    Heading to bru this morning

    Is there anything new and exciting I need to check out or stay away from? I'm looking to get a fr85 and my mom needs a convertible. I'm buying because otherwise she'd end up with a scenera from wm or a combo booster.

    The only seat I'd stay away from is the Rumi Air, but that's a combination, I think, so you should be fine.

    Cosco has repackaged AOE's as Aquos 65 and Avenues as some Eddie Bauer thing. Not bad, but not 'NEW!' like they want us to believe. Right now at my BRU the only *bad* bet is the Titan (the Tribute is actually nice for a cheap convertible, IMO), I think, and that sad Rumi Air.

    I didn't like the Titan b/c the top harness slots are really low, and I found the harness adjuster really hard to reach when the seat was rear-facing. I mean, darn near impossible to reach, to the point where I had to uninstall every time dd grew and I needed to adjust the harness at all.

    Hopefully we found something she will like. Mom wouldn't even look at bru after she saw the $300 britaxes so we went to target and baby depot and I found a pink efta for $90. Haven't tried it in her van yet but fingers crossed that it fits and she likes the knobs.
