    Re: New Ad for BRU with TINY baby ff in boulevard....

    Also, on the BRU website:

    http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=3009610

    Manufacturer's Age:
    12 months - 10 years
    Our Recommended Age: 12 months - 10 years

    It's an improvement from what it said a couple weeks ago (birth to 10 years), but they can recommend anything they want. For example, 3 to 10 years, or 35 pounds to 10 years.

    While it's not best practice, that child certainly looks to be over the minimums. Would I like to see that child rear facing? Of course! But they are using the seat correctly. She "appears" to meet the minimums and is buckled correctly

    I know we get very eager to "change" the world sometimes, but you also have to remember, alot of times these pictures are NOT doing anything wrong. It looks strange to us because we are used to seeing the 3 and 4 year olds RFing here, but I don't see how they are going to do a whole lot seeing as they are using the seat correctly

    Would it have been wise to use an older child? Yep...but they didn't. And they showed correct usage for how their product is labeled and tested.

    Now for the Boulevard CS one? That one is DEFINATELY not 1, so that would be misuse and should be complained about

    Re: New Ad for BRU with TINY baby ff in boulevard....

    did you check out the review from the mom who says it saved her kids' life.

    it sounds like she's making stuff up because she first says her son was in the ss1 until 2, but then she says that he was rf in the graco comfortsport after that and that he's now 4 and 48lbs.

    AND she says that she installed all the seats with latch AND the seatbelt and that ALL the seatbelts came unhooked.

    can we get this review taken down?

    Wow...he graduated from the SS1 at age 3 and is now 4 ( a whole year later) and is 48 lbs. So he gained what....18 pounds in a year??

    And I think I have the smallest 3 year old I know.....anywhere.....and she is probably going to outgrow the ss1 by height in a month or so. So her kid has to be TINY to have outgrown it at age 3 like mine, and then suddenly he is larger than an average 4 year old at 48 lbs?? Very very odd.....and why are the 25 month old's still in infant seats??

    Hmmmm.....an infant seat fascination.....

    Right........

    Re: New Ad for BRU with TINY baby ff in boulevard....

    I know it's not best practice, and yes I agree she looks like she's over the minimums. What frustrated me is that many many parents thinks BRU are the baby gurus, they know what's best. One look at that picture and we know that's wrong (yes, we can often tell that just by going to the store). But may, just maybe we can change the world 1 company at a time I'm not going to boycot BRU over this, but yes I will send a letter. I WILL also include info an a 9 month old FF. I haven't seen that ad. Can anyone post it her???? All I did with mine was take a pic of it (w/o flash) and post.

    Maybe if we could get BRU to show pics of ERF....THAT would be changing the world lol

    That can't be right. The safe seat came out when I was preg with Elizabeth and she just turned 2!
