    Re: true fits on sale $99 online - BRU

    Thanks OP. Grabbed one online. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get shipped one with later DOM.

    The Lamaze TF is at regular price. Is it because the Lamaze one has later DOM or is there a difference b/w the First Years and Lamaze TF? TIA

    The Lamaze ones are newer and a BRU exclusive. They are a bit more than the The First Years version anyway...nicer cover, etc.

    Re: true fits on sale $99 online - BRU

    First Years rebranded their stuff as Lamaze this year, so the difference between First Years an Lamaze will indicate the date of manufacture period on them.

    I'm fairly certain that all The First years seats for $99 are all manufactured in the 2nd quarter of 2010 and have essentially 4.5yrs left before expiring.

    Hmm - all of our First Years strollers/Car Seats have been branded as Lamaze for a good 9 or 10 months. But I'm trying to remember where the branding is now. Whether it's in the manual or on the box or somewhere else.

    I'd base the decision to return on if you need a maximum lifespan out of the seat or not. Is an extra 2.5 yrs worth $130 to you? If so then return it and get the newer one. If not, then keep the one you have and worry about the next seat when this one expires.

    Re: true fits on sale $99 online - BRU

    Now I'm worried about the DOM on my yet to be delivered seat. The sale is advertised in a sale effective tomorrow on the BRU flyer but the link doesn't work anymore.

    In how many years do True Fits expire from DOM? Thanks

    Re: true fits on sale $99 online - BRU

    Mine is a Jan 1 2010 DOM - good until 2017. to me, $99 for a seat that is going to last 5 years is a great deal... especially considering the other seat options in that price range.

    That's my line of thinking too. Especially for families who are buying the seat for a kid who is 10 or 11 months old, the seat is going to last most of them until their kid is moving in to a booster. And I don't know of any other $99 seat that can do that by both weight and height for most kids.

    Re: true fits on sale $99 online - BRU

    If these were manufactured in early 2010, are they 2012 compliant? If not, are there safety disadvantages b/w this version and the 2012 compliant version? I'm not going to compromise safety for $120 in savings. Thanks.

    yes, the version BRU is selling with the anti rebound bar and all Lamaze brand true fits are 2012 compliant.

    I really like the blue in the pattern. I also like the corduroy. I actually got mine at 10% off because they made a mistake with my last order. They also gave me free shipping. So I can't complain for $94 after taxes. Plus I didn't know it was a 7 year life Span. So that's great for me. I really like the true fit. My son is 3 and 27 pounds and I should be able to keep him rfing in the van till 4. And on a side note I wish this seat was more readily available at Walmart etc. It's super easy to install. Oh Walmart price matches online. But you have to buy at full price then get a refund for the sale. But you "may" get a better dom?

    Canadian Tire is now carrying it. It wasn't on the shelf at my store but I asked for it (in general, not to buy) and they are now planning to keep it stocked.

    Yes but for the exact identical pattern and model. So in this case. No.
