    Sparco NBB at Cdn Tire?

    Anyone know anything about this booster? Is it another Harmony clone like the Apramo?

    I need another NBB/LBB ASAP for carpooling. Have one Apramo. Don't care which one I get. Harmony at Walmart is cheapest regular price, but Apramo ones in sale cheaper sometimes. Not sure about this Sparco one.

    Anyone?

    Looks a lot like a Harmony. Arm-rests are slightly different and the sides of it are flared up/out in a way that I don't think the Harmony is.

    Is it just a regular Apramo wearing Sparco Racing clothing? Hard to tell as the angle of the two pictures aren't exactly the same.

    I would say most likely it is. They look identical to me. The Sparco one looks like it might be more padded.

    That's actually a bonus if it is more padded

    I haven't seen it in real life, just going by the pictures. So I could be wrong

    Says it has "ultra comfortable thick foam". Sounds like a winner to me, and does look Apramoish. Price is great. Can't see why it wouldn't be a good choice.

    Thx all. Was wondering if it would be more padded than the Walmart Harmony. The Apramo i have seems less padded.

    Will hit WM tomorrow at lunch. CT on way home if WM is OOS.

    Thx!

    Well, it's the cheapest. But stock seems spotty at the various WMs around me (OOS at my usual WM). Was thinking of this one as a second choice

    CT is pretty good about putting things on sale. Seems to have a few month rotation of the Ozzi and it was just on sale again. Guess it depends on how big a hurry you are in and if you like the colour! LOL I like the colour of the Apramo better than the Harmony.

    I also like the looks of this one and wonder if/what it will go on sale for and/or if it'll fit in the space in my car...

    Updating. I got the Harmony. In pink. To go with my other pink seats.

    FYI, WMs stock info on their website is inaccurate. I actually got the tan at one WM and then called around looking for the pink.
