What is a pumpkin seat?

Maybe it is a regional thing but seems like everyone on my husband's side of the family calls a car seat a pumpkin seat. What does that even mean? Whenever someone uses that term I am confused. Isn't an actual pumpkin seat like just bouncer thing and not really a car seat?

I have always heard it in reference to the infant carrying seats.

Re: What is a pumpkin seat?

Infant car seat, maybe? Around here most people just call them infant car seats. But I've heard them called bucket seats. I guess because they have a handle and you can carry them.

Totally this!

In the 80s-90s I believe there were seats made for babies to sit in, but they weren't made for the car. My sister had one that i seem to recall was called a kanga-rocker?

I have never ever heard the term pumpkin (or puuuunkin) seat...back home (IL) they were infant seats, and around here (ID) I hear that, and bucket seats a lot.
