I will state for the record that I am not the carseat police and do not care all that much what others choose to do with their kids in their cars.
But the "I want it because I want to play with it", or "because it's cool" is very offputting to me. We are trying to educate parents that carseats are vital pieces of safety equipment and they need to choose carseats that fit their child and their car. Breaking the law for cool new toys seems not to fit in with that mission.
Maybe it's just me.
I think it depends on what the PP meant by her statement. I agree that it would be cool to play with a Swedish seat. Does that mean I would like to play with the install and see how kids fit? Yes. Does it mean I would actually use it with the vehicle in motion with said hypothetical kids, short of a zombie attack? No. Now, this is just assuming I won the lotto or could borrow a seat from someone just to "check it out." And again, this is just my perspective - I have no idea what the other poster meant. :twocents:
In response to the original post, I would import if I had a child under 2 who could not fit RF in any US seats. I would consider it if the child was under 3, but I would need to do more research first.
