Who is Diono?

Sunshine Kids makes 2 seats. The Radian (65, 80, XT, 65SL, 80SL, XTSL) and the Monterey. In an attempt to become a more global company, they have decided to change their name. Sunshine Kids Juvenile Products will be Dinono as of Sept 1, 2011. They are also changing their seats a bit, once again. The new seats should be released in October 2011. Their Radians will be getting new names, and will have belt guides to provide for booster mode. They will have a minimum weight of 50 pounds for booster mode, and a maximum of 100-120 pounds (depending on which Radian it is). If you are confused by their seats, look for a future blog post explaining them all.

Now, here's the big question. How do you pronounce 'Diono'?

I am looking to buy a Diono car seat for my 10 month old. I want to keep her rear facing as long as possible. I'm finding so many different ones on the web, including ones from Sunshine. Which one should I get? Are the Sunshine ones okay?

Sunshine Kids was the name before they changed to Diono. If you buy a Sunshine Kids seat, it will be slightly older (not positive when they made the switch, likely Sept 2011). The Sunshine Kids will not offer booster mode, that is the biggest difference.

Look for a blog post about the differences this weekend.
