Meet Doona: the infant car seat that turns into a stroller!

Doona Infant Car Seat




Some updates from trade shows just absolutely can’t wait until you get home, so while we’ve already had the Doona Infant Car Seat / Stroller on our radar, after seeing it at the ABC Kids Spring Show today, we wanted to make sure you know about it ASAP!

The Doona Infant Car Seat / Stroller merges the components of a travel system into a single product: instead of snapping your infant car seat onto a stroller or frame, you just pop out Doona’s wheels and get rolling! It radically cuts down the schlepping you have to do in transit, and it’s especially valuable in travel situations:

  • Traveling in the city? Need to hop into a cab? No need to hold up traffic by putting a stroller or frame in the trunk: just pop open the wheels on your Doona, belt it securely into place in the back seat, and head off to adventure!
  • Traveling by plane? No need to go through the fuss and headache of checking your stroller and lugging your car seat onto the plane – just roll right onto the plane, tuck the wheels away, and secure your baby’s car seat into her plane seat.

The Doona Infant Car Seat can also be installed with a base, giving you a second installation option: along with seatbelt installation (with a European-style belt path, which makes installation a breeze), you have the option of having a base installed in your car, which the Doona can snap on and off of in seconds. The base is sold separately, but it looks like a really great option – along with convenience, it will likely add even more safety features to your seat. While the decision hasn’t been finalized, the Doona company is mulling over adding a load leg to the base, which does a superior job at limiting rotation in the case of a collision. You can read more about how a load leg protects your baby here.

Doona Stroller TransformationUnlike many other products that try to do two different things and wind up doing both badly, the Doona is both a superb car seat and a superb stroller. We love how much attention has been paid to finding exactly the right, top-quality materials for every detail of the car seat and base – luxurious fabrics, the right plastics, the right metals, and more. We love how it feels to push this stroller – like Bugaboo strollers, it’s engineered from the ground up, and you can tell!

And we love how wonderfully easy it is to use. Because yes, the Doona Infant Car Seat is a very attractive product, and yes, the concept sounds good, but ultimately, we’re dedicated to finding the products that make your life easier. And Doona does it!

While specs have not been absolutely finalized, we anticipate that the Doona Infant Car Seat / Stroller will be suitable for your baby to use from birth to 35 pounds or 32” of height, it will weigh 15 pounds, and it will cost somewhere around $379 – $399. We anticipate having stock around January of 2015.


And we really look forward to having this product on our store floors – we can tell you how great the Doona Infant Car Seat / Stroller is until we turn blue in the face, but nothing compares to hands-on experience. We can’t wait to introduce you to the Doona face to face!

  16. Can someone tell me when we can start the pre order I live in salt lake utah ans baby is due Feb 2015

  17. Kristy: we don’t know when we’ll be able to start preselling, but you can sign up for the mailing list to find out here:

  18. Can I just pay now n when its in stock I can have it

  19. Raven,
    We’re not placing preorders yet, but you should sign up for the mailing list here to find out when they begin:

  20. Will this be available to purchase in stores? And if so which
    Locations and date?

  21. Vanessa: we plan on having it in all of our stores, but we don’t know the time frame yet; new products can be unpredictable, but we’re hoping to have it in our stores early next year. Please sign up on the mailing list on this page to get updates when we have them:


    I am so looking forward to this car seat. I’m due in February, I hope I’ll have it by then….I just wish there was a pre-order list so we could sign up, pay, and be the first to receive it. January can not get here fast enough.

  23. Maria: I wish we could start pre-sales too! Unfortunately, it’s out of our hands at the moment – it’s up to the Doona company. Make sure you sign up on our mailing list for pre-sales, though, so you can get updates from us as soon as we have them! You’ll find it here:

  24. Could you please tell me the price of the base. Also I am assuming it meets all US standards for safety right? I know that at the hospital they always check if the carseat is on their list before you take the baby home.

  25. Claudia,
    The seat is now going to come with the base. We do not have a final price yet. It is also pushed back to mid/late February at this point (subject to change). It will meet all US standards for safety.

  26. Wanted to know when we can purchase the car seat/stroller I’m so interested im having my baby beginning of March and want this one and not waste money having to buy another I guess some are in pre sale

  27. Ericka: the most recent date we’ve heard for presales is February. I know that’s cutting it extremely close, but we can’t get it a minute sooner! Sign up on the mailing list on this page for more updates:

  28. Please please be in store In New York! I’m due June 2015!! I would love to have this please!!!

  29. Why does the date keep getting pushed back?

    Love the carseat just hope the date doesn’t keep getting pushed.

  30. Melinda: we’re so sorry the Doona keeps getting pushed back – we can’t wait to start selling them! Unfortunately, delayed safety testing and manufacturing delays keep getting in the way. We’re glad that the company is making doubly sure the seats are super, super safe, though, aren’t you?

  31. This sucks now I’m pretty upset I’m due March and now it’s pushed back till April. I’ve been wanting this bad but I’m not going to get my hopes up it will just keep getting pushed back which sucks now I’ll have to buy another car seat

  32. I got it for my brother and sister-in-law and they love it!

  33. Just got mine yesterday. It’s pretty cool. The two big issues I have with it so far is the wheels don’t pop out as smooth and quiet like in the commercial. It’s pretty fast and abrupt and loud enough to wake a sleeping baby when they pop out. Also the thing ways a ton which is not a problem because it was designed to roll on wheels every where you go but lifting the car seat out of the base is a super pain because it’s so heavy especially while trying to push the release button at the bottom. The commercial makes it look like the push handle is what locks it into the base which is not true. Anyway that’s my two cents. It’s still a great product but could be even better if they solve the two issues I mentioned above.

  34. Any idea if these are available and approved for use in canada yet? I see it can be shipped to canada but are they approved? I cant find any recent info. I want one so bad!!

  35. Where can i buy the doona car seat stroller?

  36. It looks like thus far it isn’t approved for Canada:

    I would suggest contacting the company directly to see if they have plans for getting it approved in Canada. It’s a great car seat!

    Good luck!
