Carseat Gossip


Sometimes we get the inside scoop on something.  Maybe a new model coming to market, maybe a recall, maybe a clever accessory.  That’s great if we get to break the news.  It stinks when we have to keep it a secret.  On the other hand, when someone else gives up the secret inside goods, we’re all to happy to share it.

Just check out this blog for some great gossip on upcoming Britax products, including the Roundabout 50, the Marathon CSChaperone Infant seat and Parkway 120!  There’s also a new Blink stroller.  The Advocate is already announced and close to market.  We actually spilled the beans on that one last fall.  Aside from the Advocate, the other models are earlier in development.  So, all this information is very preliminary and intended for sales personnel to discuss with retail buyers.  If these products do make it to retail shelves, they may well have different features than what is listed.  In fact, I know that some of the things I heard about the Chaperone changed between a year ago and the ABC show last fall.  The same was true of some of the early Frontier information that made it out to retailers.

Still, like any gossip, it makes for interesting discussion;-)  Just don’t put aside buying a child restraint you need now for a feature that may not make it to release or a model that may not ever make it off the prototype shelf!
