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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I thought that too- but then ended up placing an order for the cow one too! I'm somewhat concerned that these will sell out- so I figured I was actually just covering my bases by ordering them both. If I really don't need them when they arrive I'll return the cow one- ahem- maybe. Lol. Cause by that time, the money's been spent, right?

I was browsing Target.com and found this... I think the universe is finally on my side on SOMETHING. We weren't going to be able to afford a new carseat for our HUGE baby and we were going to have to buy a used, very cheap seat. Now, we have a friggin BRITAX! I'm so stoked. If this doesn't work out, I will seriously cry.

I noticed that on the photos of the 2 seats that are on sale, they don't picture the latch connectors and on all of the other seats, they do.

I'm not saying that they don't come with latch... I just find it odd that they don't picture the latch connectors.

Anyways, SWEET DEAL!!!!
