in granite, cowmooflauge for $59 or something like that.

Hopefully they won't pull the same stunt as baby universe a couple months back


Oh, and they are the 33 lb seats, but a great deal that you can't obviously beat


ETA: the estimated arrival date is mid-december to early january, by the way.

I am so glad you posted this! My husband and I have been debating what to do come June. Our decision was just made! Free shipping even!

If they're 33lbs seats, what's the DOM?

I'm not sure, but it didn't seem like the biggest deal considering the price. Even if I lose a year or a year and a half, it's still a great deal.

I just bought one as an extra to have for grandma but can you explain what you mean by "33 pound seats" ?

ah never mind, friend just explained it.

Marathons (and Boulevards for that matter) newer than late February 2008 have a RF weight limit of 35 pounds. All the older ones have a 33 lb weight limit.

So, these seats are at the newest mid-February 2008. Fine by me--for that price, I don't mind in the slightest, since I really don't need 35 lb weight limits. I don't plan on using it the full 6 years anyway (our seats get really nasty well before then ).

Do these really work for newborns?

That's cheaper than a second base for the bucket seat I've been looking at. Maybe I'll get it for DH's car and then transfer it to my car when we outgrow the bucket.

It says 5lb and up.

Thank you so, so, so much! I've been stressing about affording seats for these babies and now I got two of the best seats available for less than one crappy seat would cost! I can not tell you how excited I am!

If these are the old ones why don't they have them to ship right away? I ordered one and it says the estimated ship date is in about 4 weeks. You'd think if they were truly the old ones they'd have them right there.

Either way I don't personally care. We don't need the 35 lb rfing limit...dd is super tiny and this is just a spare seat for dh's car that we don't use often.

It doesn't really fit most newborns, because the lowest harness slot is pretty high.

For the bucket, though, you can always install it in the second car without the base (not sure that all seats allow this, but I think most do).

The estimated delivery date on mine is tomorrow.

They are NOT suitable for newborns. The lowest strap is 10", which is too tall for the vast majority of newborns.
post #16 of 377
For those asking, I personally wouldn't use them right off the bat with a newborn. A marathon looks ginormous for most newborns and I really don't think the average newborn will fit properly. I think it is a wonderful seat from about 4+ months depending on how big and tall your baby is.

*dies from what an unbelievably good deal she just got*

Wow! My estimated delivery date is Dec 18 - Jan 6! It'll be interesting to see what the difference in DOM is on our seats.

did you select priority shipping or something? I'm jealous, but of course I don't need it for a couple more months.


Am I the only one giddy with excitement over this deal? DH doesn't quite get why I was soooo excited about it.
