Curious - overhead shield ?

Hi Ladies,


Well preschool has started and I saw 2 different families using the overhead shield carseats.. one was for a 2yo one for a 3yo. I was under the impression these seats were expired. I know of the dangers with them but wondered if it was possible that the seats were not expired. how long ago did they stop making them? I would like to be able to approach the mom's and instead of sounding like an idiot be able to inquire about the seats and possible educate and offer suggestions.. definitly if cost an issue the 2yo could use a scenera...


 


Thanks

Some overhead shield car seats were made as late as 2009.

I like to look at www.carseat.org and in the middle column towards the bottom of the page click on "Color Pictorial Guide to CRS". This shows the year that all different kinds/styles of seat were manufactured.
