Saw a big box at Target tonight up on the risers by the swings/bouncy seats...intrigued when I see Sunshine Kids....it's a Monterey and it's PINK....check the price, it's 81.83 (an online return). It's still in the trunk but I want to make sure it's still new with all the tags etc, but am excited to try DD in it.

DH hates doing up car seats and I think he'll appreciate having a booster in his Durango (she is currently in a Regent.) She's 6 1/2, 43lbs and 47" tall. Now to do some booster training for both DD and DH!

New you guys would understand my excitement, I'm a geek!:rolleyes:

Here's the seat in the vehicle with DD. She is 47inches tall.

I'm not sure that the seat belt is right at the buckle side...tell me what you think.

I've never used a booster and the manual was unclear about using the red belt guide, so I put the seatbelt through the red belt guide, is that right.

I'm disappointed that DD cannot do the seatbelt up herself, it's too far down and awkward (at least with her Regent she could do it herself).

Thoughts, should I keep it???

Awww mannn!!!!! Mine never has good returns! (or good sales for that matter). I ordered a Pink Monterey through SKJP but have called about 4 times in 2 weeks and still no seat. :(

Congrats on your super score!

and when do we get PICTURES??? I want to see how she fits in it, of course... not to mention how happy she'll be with a pink seat.

And I agree... at her age, booster training is a very good idea and timely idea and I'd be doing it for the spare car, too.
 
woohoo! sounds like the perfect opportunity for you!
Thanks for posting - I don't have any good reason to buy more seats so I get my happy-geek-new-carseat fix by reading about other folks' happy new car seat purchases - yes, I'm hopeless:eek:

I would love to know how well your DD fits. My DS is same age and very nearly the same weight and height and I am sitting on the verge of purchasing a Radian XT. I am just concerned about how well he'll fit and at that price I want it to last for awhile. :)
