Free carseat!

Look what I got for free!





It was just sitting on the curb with some furniture. What a deal!




Okay, obviously I'm joking. When I saw it I was horrified that someone else might pick it up and use it. The seat itself says 1984 patent pending, but the cover has the date 1987 on it, so I'll assume it's about 20 year old. TWENTY! Isn't that scary? And these people didn't toss it in the trash, instead they set it on the curb with the other free stuff, so they fully expected someone to USE this seat still. Yikes!

I just had to take some pictures of this antique, lol, before cutting it up and tossing it. Sorry if I gave anyone a heart attack.

Re: Free carseat!

Ah, the dreaded Fisher Price T-shield. They were last made in 1992 IIRC. That was a favorite seat of many parents because the harness is on a retractor, making it very easy to use. The seats themselves were plagued with numerous recalls, 95% of those seats ever sold were recalled for something.

That is one of the better ones I've seen.
