    Alma MyRide is here

    Cover is lovely, much nicer than the listing. Purple is bright but not flourescent. The pinks in the center are very mellow and the pattern on the pink is vines, butterflies and birds, sort of an Asian feel to it. Cover is very soft but not plush.

    I'll take pictures in a bit. Also...looks like they fixed the cover issue. This cover is broader than the Edgemont in the shoulders and the elastic wraps over the edges quite deeply. It won't slip off.

    Is the Edgemont the one in your siggy picture? That's the one we have but I never can remember what it's called. We've had the same issue with the elastic - it's not an actual problem, really, but at 3.5, DD insists on climbing in and out of the seat by herself, so the side of the cover gets quite a bit of rubbing, etc. I might consider getting a new cover if it seems that they've fixed it.

    (OK, I probably won't get a new cover, considering that I don't even know how much I'll be able to use this seat once DD2 arrives, since we have to get 3-across, but I like to think about a new cover. )

    No it's soft...almost like an old flannel pajama that doesn't have the fluffy anymore, just the softness.

    Judi, hello, I am drinking here. If I keep taking pictures and uploading them, I am going to hurt myself.

    Re: Alma MyRide is here

    I'm a little disappointed. I thought it was more of an eggplant with subtle pink accents. Instead, it looks like standard purple and pink.
