The rumors are true. The Graco My Ride 65 will RF to 40 pounds and FF to 65 pounds. It is now a real seat. I have seen real life pictures of it. The seat shell measures about the same, or slightly shorter than the Marathon. However, the pictures with a child in it look like he has slightly more growing room in the My Ride than in the Marathon. The top harness slots are slightly below 17 inches. The Marathon is supposed to have 16 inch top slots, but often measure at 17.
What does this mean? Can my child RF until she's 6?! Probobly not. But those 34 pound 1 or 2 year olds can RF longer now :) It is said to be in stores the first week in June. And it's said to be $150-175. Great price for what sounds like a great seat. Can you guess where I will be everyday in June until it arrives? Or until the nice manager (Nick.... do you read my blog...?) gives me an exact arrival date. Babies R Us. I WANT THIS SEAT.
This is history in the making. The very first American carseat that can RF to 40 pounds. Very exciting :)
