For someone unfamiliar with Doona, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

With the push of a button, Doona transforms from car seat to stroller and back again. This is the only piece of gear parents need when out and about with baby. The mission of the parent company is to improve and simplify the lives of parents and their babies, and Doona is the perfect example.

Doona’s parent company, Simple Parenting, was started over 10 years ago by designer Yoav Mazar who wanted to cut down on all the gear that was needed when out with his newborn daughter. Inspired by his daughter, he wanted to design a car seat that was safe and practical. Combining the two functions of a car seat and stroller took nearly a decade to perfect.
