Target Canada and TBSS Dahlia

Just a little update after going there tonight. I was alerted by Pixelated that the Graco Turbobooster with safety surround was on sale for $80 (reg $110), and both green and purple were mentioned in the flyer. Excited I phoned all 5 stores located up to 45 min of solid highway driving away, and after waiting on hold forever, was told nobody had purple in stock. I decided to just get a green one and drove to the nearest store. The display was green, but the two boxes were one green and one purple! Yay!

The store staff were 'bend over backwards' helpful getting them to my car which was not parked nearby.

And, just in case people were wondering, in addition to the usual suspects, they had the Truefit there, which I understand is sometimes hard to find, as well as a gold coloured Nautilus which I'd never seen before, in case someone is looking for it.

This was the newly opened store at Metrotown in Burnaby BC.

So you're saying you bought all that Metrotown had? LOL

I *thought* I saw a green one at the Richmond store earlier in the week...if anyone else is looking...

I'm assuming they had more in their back room - they only opened this month, and appeared to have one display and only one in box of everything. Yes, Richmond was one of the stores I called, and all had green in stock, including Coquitlam, Delta, Surrey and Langley.

I really want to get the purple one and see if it'll work in my third row. I hate having DS in the flimsy old Amp back there.

Is it more pink or purple - or an in-between colour? It looks very different in different photos so I'm curious! What do your kids think? I love the brightness of both of them.

I'm not sure if this worked, but I've attached a photo with the box (which looks more purple), and the edge of the actual seat (which looks fuschia/purple-ish). It's a nice rich colour, though.

We just got ours today for my 5y4m old to begin booster training & it's awesome! The green is really vibrant!

The purple is like a brighter version of the harmony literider purple! It's deep but a true purple.

It's much sturdier than I expected! Although not as padded as it looks in terms of comfort

Yes, the green is also lovely and vibrant. I fully admit that part of my desire to get the purple is to have a green and a purple of the same seat to match. . .

Oh, and in case anyone is still reading, I went to register them online just now and neither model numbers are listed on the elfe.net website that the registration card mentions. I've emailed them to find out what's going on.

And in case others are wondering, mine came with arm rests already screwed in - hopefully they are all like this.

There's a Maple Leaf on it, right?

Can you imagine if Target w/ their newness to Canada, did a big old Oops and started selling seats here that were not allowed! LOL Really wouldn't occur to me to check when buying a seat here, but when you then take it and can not register it...

Yeah, I thought that for a split second, too, when the model number didn't come up, but yup, there's the maple leaf, so it's not that. I'll update when I get a response from Graco.

I checked one of my Target stores yesterday and it only had the green.

I bought an early Nautilus back in the day, and its model number wasn't on Elfe either. Seems they have a history of being behind on their website. ;) I emailed them and they registered me manually that way.

The DOMs are not great, in fact, more than a year old: both are Oct 2012. However, they are good for 10 years, and my kids are already 9 and 7 (albeit very small for their ages) so I think I'm good! I *hope* my daughter won't still need a booster at 18!

Damn! Mine is Oct/2012 too!!!! Now I'm kinda annoyed

If I paid full price I would likely be returning it but since it was on sale I'm just gonna get over it! Totally sucks that I've lost a whole year of use though! I could theoretically pass it down to DS2 but given the car seat fanatic I am I doubt DS1 will use it for long before I get bored & want something else lol

I really do like it though & it will be great to have on hand as a back up for even my niece & nephews!
