There is an unopened car seat box in my living room


New member
My SIL asked for advice on a new seat for dn for her car. I recommended the true fit for many reasons. Got it yesterday, but she didnt immediately tear into it excitedly. It's still in the box, taped up. I want to play with it so badly it's killing me!!!

Would it be wrong to open it up and play while she is at work and then put it all back and tape it back up before she gets back? :)

Can you text her at work? I wouldn't want her to get mad but I would want to play with it too if I were you!


New member
Lol she already thinks I'm a total freak about car seats (because I am). I'm trying to resist and let her be the first to play with it since she is proud of finally being able to get a nice seat for her dd. It's Sigh.

You should have seen me with the new Argos that my friend bought. I tore the box open as soon as it was inside and read the manual and started playing! I proved how much of a car seat nerd I am :whistle:
omygoodness that would kill me too!! Our seat didnt even make it two feet in the door from the UPS guy (today) and we were ripping the copious amounts of tape off (Thanks Amazon!) We had the seat out in 2 minutes flat!!! lol. :D

I hope you eventually got to play with it!

Omg I usually tear into them too!! My baby jogger city select came yesterday and dd2 is so sick I didn't get to open it until after bed time! Torture I tell ya!!!

Sent from my iPod touch, sorry for any auto-correct typos!


New member
Yes I finally got to play! Got it all set up for dn and sil put it in her car. Went in super easy, no movement at the belt path. I hope she loves it, so far she just keeps commenting on how huge it is. Going from an avenue to a true fit is a big difference lol


New member
Yeah I got our true fit yesterday and it barely made it up the stairs before it was out of the box and put together and sized for my youngest lol I did resist for a few hours for installing only because it was super windy outside yesterday.

My new Argos has been lying in the cargo area of my Highlander since Saturday! Is there something wrong with me? Or is it because 1) I already tried my friend's Argos in my car and know it works and 2) I am NOT looking forward to un-installing the RN RXT and lugging it back into the house!

Well, you can just box that pretty purple RXT and send it to me. I have a great spot for it and it will receive lots of love. ;-)
