    Where was your car seat made?

    Expanding on this thread where was your car seat made?

    It would be nice if we could get different brands just to see what countries the companies make their seat.

    Re: Where was your car seat made?

    The FPSVD was made in NC.
    The scenera, I don't know, on the seat it has a place for country of manufacture, but nothing is stamped there.
    And the TB, I'd have to go to the car to find out. I think China.
    apparently, people put stuff here.
    imagine:

    My Raidans are made in China. I don't know about the other seats but my guess would be China as well...
    Actually, just about everything we buy these days is made in China *sigh*

    My Radian's China.

    Our E/B does not have it written anywhere on the seat. The cover has a label saying it was assembled in Mexico.

    Our other seats, I have no idea.

    I haven't voted yet - I need to check my Graco.

    Our MA is made in the US, we'll be getting a Radian (99% sure,) so that'll be China... so whatever my Graco is is how I'll vote - majority wins... (Or I could just choose other.)

    Seeing as the girls are in nothing but Britax seats now so the US for all our seats. We do have 2 Graco seats a TB (emergancy seat from grandpa) & a CarGo (we don't use this on at all anymore).
