Re: New - Graco Smart Seat!

Someone posted a link to this shortly after the ABC Kids Expo. Awesome idea, especially since you can purchase multiple bases, but it seems like it would be super heavy to move car to car. If I had the money I'd probably grab one to check it out, but for some reason I've just never been a huge Graco carseat fan.

I can't wait until this comes out and I can play with it at BRU. I think there is going to be an unveiling this month and that it will be on the market next year.

Re: New - Graco Smart Seat!

seems like it has some great features. I do hope Graco can make it recline less RF for older children so it will actually work for some folks!

In theory a great seat but it definately has drawbacks...weighs 35#, very wide, very reclined RF, costs $299 plus $99 for additional bases and the top harness slots are low.

It has not hit stores yet so maybe some of those things will change!

I think the price point it going to kill it. You can buy 2 really nice seats for $400...
