    Seat on Modern Family



    I know it's a Nauti or Argos...but what the heck is up with Lilly's seatbelt?

    Turbo. And the shoulder belt is going over the armrest, rather than under it.

    I knew there was something wonky going on but couldn't figure out what was wrong.

    Ahh, I see it now. I recently saw a pic of a Nauti with a similar pattern, so that was stuck in my head. I've never seen a kid in a Turbo, I didn't realize the head wings were so prominent.

    That's one of the brand new Turbos with the Safety Surround or whatever it's called.

    I haven't watched the show in a while but did they age Lilly? Because the last time I watched it, which was last year (I think) she was a baby/young toddler.

    Also I thought the new turbo wasn't coming out until May or something like that, did I miss something? I am wanting to get my nephew one for his birthday in July.

    Re: Seat on Modern Family

    I was just coming to start a thread about seeing one of the new Turbo's on Modern Family (with my husband rolling his eyes at me because I'm such a dork) and you guys beat me to it! Looks like we're all dorks!!!

    That was totally one of the safe surround ones (you can see the SIP logo on the head wing). How did they get that?!?!?!

    And on another note....how hard is it to route a belt correctly on a booster. I mean come on!!!!!

    Yep, she is older now. 4, I think? Maybe 5. It was far better when she didn't talk. And don't get me started on the booster. How hard would it have been for them to buckle her properly?

    It was a good episode, though.

    They also had an iPad before it was released. It's the #1 comedy on TV-- I'm sure companies are itching to get their products seen on the show.

    I thought the Little Bo Bowel episode where she dropped the F bomb was one of the best episodes ever

    Edit: that ass supposed to be Little Bo Bleep ....

    Edit again: that WAS!!!! I've got to get used to typing on my Kindle Fire.

    Are you sure it's a new one? I swear I've seen that pattern before.

    It is not a new one. They added that little symbol to all of their boosters.

    Definitely NOT the new turbo. It's the Turbo Elite sold at BRUS. It's been out for a year or so. The pattern is called Posie. They also have a travel system, swing and pack n play in that pattern I believe

    But the headwings look so much thicker than the current TBs. Maybe it's a new TB with a similar pattern, just like they did with Sonata on the MR.

    The Elites have the adjustable head wings and I think extra padding to make them thicker.

    Re: Seat on Modern Family

    I recall her being 10 months old and forward facing in the first season. Which is of course just dumb because if she was rear facing they wouldn't have had to pay the little baby actor fees.
