    What to do with a Touriva?

    I have a used Torivia that we have had for a while. It was a spare seat that only got used two or three times. I was going to list it on our local freecycle but am wondering if that would be the best idea? It has the notches which I think they all do but it does not have any recalls. It has about a year and a half before expiration.
    I guess what I am trying to get at it is what would you do with the seat? Do I destroy it or give it to someone who could use it? Thanks

    I would destroy (or recycle) it, or even give it to a tech for a teaching tool, but wouldn't let anyone else use it.

    Thank you. Do you know how I would go about seeing if there are any techs in my area that may be able to use it.

    Check with your local SafeKids coalition to see about using it for training purposes.

    Otherwise, I would destroy the thing.
