Hey girls, I was online looking for a baby bjorn carry and I checked out ebay...I can't help but question if I buy some thing from there if it will be safe or not. You know what I mean? I'm sure it is and I know a lot of quality stuff is sold on ebay...I'm just concerned!!! What do you think? Am I over reacting already?!!

I buy and sell on eBay all the time. It's fine. I always pay with Pay Pal and never send a money order. That way you have record of your payment.

Its funny you asked this b/c I just bought a baby bjorn carrier from ebay today. It was a buy it now item. I get sick of all the bidding, and most of the time the bid's can go fairly high towards the end. I still ended up saving about $35 on the item I bought. I have bought a few other things on ebay before (non baby items), and have never had problems. I usually look at the seller's feedback, and make sure their percentage is not too low. It should be fine.

I buy off ebay all the time! Just make sure that you read reviews of the seller and make sure you read every word of small print on the description, cuz if it was misrepresented at all then you get your money back... ebay has strict policies on sales... good luck!

Just make sure you check out the person's feedback before you buy to make sure they are a good seller.

When buying a baby bjorn from ebay - make sure to check the date it was manufactured. Baby bjorns were recalled (I think those made before August 2004). So if you see a "really good deal" - it could be a recalled item. I guess that goes for any baby product... just do your homework and you should be fine.

never hesitate to ask the seller questions either... they have to answer properly, if not don't buy!

livdea- I haven't purchased anything from ebay..but I know what you mean. I would probably suggest to just buy one at either Target or Walmart...plus Im sure its less expensive (no shipping fees) Just a thought!
