    Doll carseat w/latch and crash-tested

    There is a doll carseat in One Step Ahead that is latch compatible and crash-tested. Not sure for safety for the child or the doll? LOL

    It was really cool! I mean, latch and crash testing??? Wow.
    I always lamented that doll carseats were junky and not good imitations of the real thing.
    Seatbelt and 59" (9 YO)
    Harmony Youth (8 YO)/Clek Olli (6YO)
    Harmony Dreamtime (5 YO)
    Clek Fllo (3 YO, RF)/Graco 40 (15 months)
    + 2 Recaro Performance boosters in spare car

    Isn't that the Joovy one? It is very cool, I'd like to get Ella one someday. She's got a cheap infant doll carrier from Target that actually isn't horrible. It's a three point harness with an actual buckle, it reminds me of a European seat lol.

    Joovy has an infant seat with base as well as a FF harnessed seat. Both can be installed with seatbelt or latch. We have both and DD loves them still.

    We have both and love them too! We also have one of the old doll turbo booster seats, dd1 loved that booster for her AG dolls. It is waiting for dd2.

    We have the whole Joovy baby doll set (both seats, stroller, and playpen) plus the Graco booster. Love them all!

    Hahahah! Yeah, I got the Joovy FF seat years ago for like $12, and have never seen them that cheap again, the $45 Mico seemed like a good deal in comparison (open box return, manager markdown, coupon, employee discount, maybe even some rewards bucks to get it that cheap, lol).

    The Tolly Tots Turbo Booster was awesome, too, I wish my kids hadn't somehow destroyed it...

    Oh, I think the crash testing weight on the Joovys is like, 3.5 pounds? Definitely doll-weight (the LATCH is kind of...not as solid, as real LATCH)

    I just bought DD a second Joovy infant seat for Xmas. I will post a pic of how it comes out of the box when she is at school. It's in a plastic bag just like a real car seat, with a LATCH strap, locking clip, and instruction booklet. Cutest.thing.EVER!!!! It looks like you're pulling out a legit infant carseat from the box.
