    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Deluxe Convertible Car Seat

    Baby Depot and Burlington Coat Factory had it last year. If they still have some, (I don't at my store, but that is what you get when you have a tech in a baby dept!), they would probably be on clearance by now. I like the seat, had no problems with install, but didn't care for the quality of the cover.

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Deluxe Convertible Car Seat

    I purchased a Fisher Price Save Voyage Deluxe from babyuniverse.com about a week ago and it arrived today. These definitely haven't been discontinued. The one I have has a manufacture date of 3/12/2007 (just a couple of weeks before I ordered it). It seems they're still being produced, but it might only be available on special order from retailers.

    I saw the seat in person at a local brick & mortar, and was a little bit concerned about the seat cover quality. I decided to go ahead and buy the FPSVD, figuring I could always get a Marathon seat cover to replace it. I was pleasantly surprised when the seat arrived because the cover fabric on this seat was far better than the floor model I had seen earlier. From what I can tell, the seat looks great and will provide a long period of use for my son. I really like that it's made by Britax and at $129.99 (after an online coupon) shipped, I can't complain.

    I hope this is useful information for anyone considering this seat and having difficulty finding it.

    Does it recline well for kiddos to sleep FF?

    So I read this seat CANNOT be tethered in RF mode?

    No, it can not be tethered RF. Recline for FF should only be used if it is to get a good fit in the car.

    An update to my 3/20/07 update...I realized that when I have the FPSVD installed in one of the captain's chairs, I can recline the captain's chair 1-2 clicks (just a little bit) and get a much better recline angle for napping.

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Deluxe Convertible Car Seat

    I just installed one of my new FPSVD seats into our 2002 PT Cruiser, RF outboard driver's side, and I was able to get a rock solid install using the latch. I am very happy with my purchase. I had to upgrade the 6 year old seats we had been using in my husband's car, but did not want to purchase our 8th and 9th Britax seats. (The seven Britax seats in my vehicle just about broke the budget! No Starbucks for me for the next year! Okay, more like 10 years!)

    Anyway, it is essentially the same build as the Britax Marathon with these main differences: the recline is not quite as easy to do, no belt lock-offs, only one side of the latch strap is adjustable and they are a hook on rather than clip on style *no button release*, no pouch for the tethter strap, the fabric isn't as soft, no HUGS or belly pad, and no velcro tabs to hold the straps out of the way when getting baby into the seat. I do think the shoulder strap pads on the FPSVD are superior to those on our Britax Boulevards in that they are longer and narrower. I also think the padding and safety foam are very comparable to the Britax seat, and it is much softer than the Cosco Scenera I was also considering. (I never saw the Uptown in person, so I don't know how it compares to that.) I do know that it has a 55 lb. harness limit, so it will be able to take my little guys all the way until they are ready for a high back booster - and I'm happy about that.

    Not as well. I have Evenflo Triumph, which can be reclined 4 positions (I think) for FF, so it is at the setting 1 less than upright, and DS sleeps in that very well. The FPSVD doesn't recline as much (and less of a bowl shape). Still, DS slept for 45 minutes yesterday, and I had to wake him up because we got to where we were going. He also said that he likes the seat (he is 3.75 years old) so that is

    I bought this seat for my 20 month old to use rfing. He is 20lbs and 30 inches and has lots, and lots of room to grow in it. I have it installed with latch in the second row captains chair of our odyssey. It was simple to install and is rock solid. I have found that it is easy to adjust the harness. We are very pleased with this seat.

    What color cover did you get? Or was it the same color as in-store?

    The cover that looks like Target dots, is cheap. Don't get it!

    I have the black cover, not the red one and it is great!
