Default BA Crew / visitor / Expat PHX? bring car seat to PHX...

I made a post earlier, and it appears to have been removed.

does anyone know someone who could bring over a British Carseat, that I would like to order for my soon to be new born baby?

Thanks

You included your email address in the post. This means anyone, including non-members can see your email.

Why can't you ask relatives, in the UK or elsewhere to give you the carseat as a present for your newborn?

Why do you need a British carseat?

What's wrong with US ones?

Are you serious? Bring something into the country for someone you don't know and have never met. Get them to send it to you.

If anything else car seats and the like cost a damn sight more in the UK than they do here.

It well out ranks all the US car seats tested in the Consumer reports earlier this year (regardless of the speed tested) and as safety is paramount for my child, it's a cost I'm willing to bear

You know that that test was recalled, right? http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/b...w/0507seat.htm

Innocent question here - I'm just curious!
In the Australia forums car seats are mentioned regularly, as UK ones are not legal in Australia, even though it seems they are built to a higher safety standard! IS it not the same in the US then? Can you legally use UK seats in the USA?

So why don't you pay to have it shipped over here instead of asking a stranger to bring it into the US for you?

indeed....amazon would sell them without much issue....but the issue might well come into using one, certainly in a plane as many UK one's won't be certified, thus allowed to use in the US...
