    Thumbs down Terrible CL find (Marvin)

    I found a really bad seat on craigslist.

    It's a narnia with a cat and no manuel. i might buy it since it's only missing the crotch strap. my dh could fix something to make it work i'm sure.

    quick, flag it before anyone else can see!

    PS: Is this Marvin's listing??

    I think you may have found it. This guy knows too much about seats to actually try to sell this.

    Okay, I saw that this morning, but didn't read the whole ad. I was expecting to see Marvin in the picture, and when I didn't, continued on.

    I am thinking it is more of a joke just by the wording.....

    There are no basements in Slidel. And they sure as heck wouldn't be cool or dry.

    That listing has Marvin written all over it, and I sure hope the cat doesn't get ahold of Marvin.

    That's it!

    A hint from the blog:
    Sorry! Marvin is not from Miami, but you’re getting warmer. Marvin and his charity ARE from a region in need of aid right now!

    Re: Terrible CL find

    I'm really excited about a seat that has a teether, I've never had one before. Plus, I love the smell of cat litter dust, and the stickers are legibil. $39 S & H is quite the bargain too!

    I did post over on the blog about this one, but it still says my comment is awaiting moderation. I posted it right after I started this thread here.

    I found it by going to New Orleans CL and I just scrolled down the baby list, it was pretty close to the top still. I think it's listed as a baby seat instead of a car seat, so it's harder to search for.

    It is pretty dorky, but I was avoiding doing other work, so it was a good way to procrastinate.
