    Angry Re: New evenflo seat available sept 2008

    Ok I have a question what is AOE? Ok on to the bad news, I called evenflo back again today and ask them about the new seat....Here's the rundown
    Its called an All in 1

    rear facing 5 - 35
    Forward facing 20 - 40
    Booster from 30 - 100
    it does not convert to a backless booster


    Colors liberty - 2 tone gray with black on side.
    They told me yesterday it came in a pink and black, but today they said it only had 1 pattern.

    Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up like mine were

    Guess I'll go on the the GN when my DD is ready, I had one, but had to return it b/c I didnt realize that it didnt RF and she's only 17 - 18 pounds, and was worried about the expiration date before she got to that point.

    Once again I'm sorry I even posted this

    I was so Hoping this seat would work.....

    I know I'm really dissapointed....I need a longer harnessing seat. I have one EFTA and I have the avenue, guess I'll go with the GN after she outgrows the avenue. Well that is unless they have something better then. I know that will be sever years down the road...lol. But I was so hoping..

    What does AOE mean?

    I was really hoping for something with a higher rear-facing weight limit. Elizabeth is 29 lbs and I have a marathon that goes to 35. The makers have 6 lbs to make a seat that goes rear-facing longer!

    Re: New evenflo seat available sept 2008

    Actually I am on a mother's group for Evenflo and I am testing the Symphony out right now. I like it a lot. It is the gray color like posted previously. It is really simple to adjust unlike other car seats that I have used....very user friendly for any mom. Instead of having the three slots in the back where you have to adjust the straps, the straps move up and down and adjust with the child...no more having to put your child in and thread the straps through. You just put the car seat in and adjust it as you put your child in...if that makes any sense. I can take a pic and post it if anyone is interested. My child is forward facing but for the rear facing children it has 4 different reclining positions. Also the head rest moves up and down to adjust with your child just like a regular seat in the car does. I think it is neat. I would definitely buy it that is for sure...and I am not trying to solicit or anything like that. I was just looking online to find out when this actually gets released to the public and found this thread.

    Yes, of COURSE we want pictures!!

    And can you confirm the rear-facing and forward-facing limits?

    Basically any existing info you can confirm and any additional info you can provide will be much appreciated.

    Re: New evenflo seat available sept 2008

    Looks like you guys had the weights right...
    Rear is 5-35 (has one reclining position)
    Forward is 20-40 (has three reclining positions)
    Booster is 30-100

    The booster seat is not backless. The base does come off when it turns into a booster. It has body pillows and head pillows for the babies just like most out there now a days. The headrest is adjustable for whatever height the child is. It is really easy to use too...just squeeze this red lever behind the headrest and it goes up and down. Looks like they might be thinking 199 for the price of the carseat. It has Surelatch connectors which makes the installation easier. It has a side removable cupholder. Umm....I don't know what else you guys would like to know.

    How do you post pics on here? I don't see the option to.

    Upload the pics to an image storage site like Photobucket (free!) and then paste the IMG code for each image into your post here.

    Re: New evenflo seat available sept 2008

    I'm disappointed that it's only a 40 lb limit. Sounds like an EFTA with a booster mode option, a lower weight limit and a higher price. IMO, a step down from the EFTA - but I'll reserve final judgement for when I see it!

    Re: New evenflo seat available sept 2008

    So....dorel steps up and makes a good seat(the new AOE), and evenflo decides there just arent enough crappy 3-in-1's with stupid limits, so it steps in to fill the void??
    ARGH!
    At least maybe the booster is a *good* booster? If the top slot height allows kids to actually GET to 40 pounds, and the booster is good, then okay..I can see it...most parents arent going to hanress their kids past 40 anyway.......

    Me WANT pics.

    and measurement of the slot in top position.

    Re: New evenflo seat available sept 2008

    Sorry about the delay!! I was gone all day then when I went to the site tonight it was unavailable. Here are the pics. Hope they help! The first one is with the extra pads. Second one obviously is without and with the headrest fully extended. Didn't take a pic of the booster seat mode yet because I haven't converted it. My son is just forward facing and is only 23 lbs. Haven't had a whole lot of time to mess around with it. I am not sure if they are going to let us keep them or not. I am kind of thinking they aren't since it isn't on the market yet.
