As habitual readers of Spilling the Beans are well aware, exploring the world of new baby products and discovering gear that will make your life easier is a passion for us here at Magic Beans. At the ABC Kids Expo and other trade shows, we’re always ferreting out new innovations that will truly transform the way you care for your baby, from feeding to sleeping to soothing – and especially travel! Because for teeny-tiny little people, babies really add complexity to the process of getting from Point A to Point B.
So while we’ve known about the Doona Infant Car Seat for a while, we’re keeping a close eye on this exciting new product, because not only have we never seen anything like it, but we also think it will solve common travel issues exceptionally well. A quick refresher on Doona, and some updates:
- Yes, the Doona Infant Car Seat transforms into a stroller! Instead of unfolding a travel frame or stroller to pop your car seat onto a travel system, you just pop out Doona’s wheels and you’re ready to roll. It’s so simple and beautiful.
- Traveling by cab? No need to stow a separate frame in the trunk and hold up traffic while assembling your travel system – just pop out those wheels!
- Traveling by plane? No need to check your stroller separately – just stroll on board, pop in the wheels, and buckle your Doona Infant Car Seat in. It’s certified for air travel!
Now that the Doona Infant Car Seat is closer to its actual release – we’re hoping to take preorders starting in November, and have Doona car seats in stock in January, and the infant car seat base should appear mid-2015 – specs on this product are also closer to finalized:
- Price: about $350 (just the seat, no base)
- Weight: about 15 pounds
- Capacity: 4-35 pounds, or up to 32”
- Shipping: USA only
- Accessories: Sunshade Extension, Rain Cover, Snap on Storage, Wheel Covers, Vehicle Seat Protector
