    Just an FYI on the Graco Headwise deal on Amazon

    I ordered 2 of these for my girls. [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Graco-Safety-Surround-Protection-Marok/dp/B00MYQROQG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417033967&sr=8-1&keywords=graco+headwise+70"]Amazon.com : Graco Head Wise 70 Car Seat with Safety Surround Protection, Marok : Baby[/ame]


    I got them today and they have a DOM of July 2013. That explains the good deal.


    ETA: I looked closer and they have stickers on them that say target.com. I would guess this is stock left over from when they changed the covers they carry.

    ETAA: No I didn't get that cover, I got the purple one, Duh.

    Re: Just an FYI on the Graco Headwise deal on Amazon

    Another FYI - any of the "70" Graco convertibles (MySize 70, MyRide 70, Headwise 70, etc.) are all going to have DOM prior to 2/27/14 when the new FMVSS 213 standards went into effect essentially forcing most convertibles to backtrack to 65 lbs.

    Ditto for the Argos 70. To my knowledge, the Argos 80 Elite is the only seat currently in production by Graco with a weight limit above 65 lbs.

    Oh wow, good point, I had totally forgotten that. No wonder they are selling them so cheap.
