I was absolutely blown away when I saw this next-generation car seat with retractable stroller wheels called Doona. Made by an Israel-based company this car seat has legs and wheels that are folded underneath the seat. NO more carrying car seats around!
Once you are ready to roll, just unfold the wheels and you have a stroller. It transitions from a stroller into a car seat in one single motion. How cool is that?
Of course with small wheels like these, you need to stay on a flat surface. It’s designed for running errands around town, going to the doctor’s office, cafe, or traveling.
This car seat weighs only 15 lbs which is feather-light compared to a travel system. Also, think how much space you can save in the trunk of your car now that you don’t need to bring a stroller with you. Traveling with it should be a breeze. You can bring it on a plane or a taxi with no problem. Buy Doona Car Seat »
I was also pleasantly surprised about the safety features of this car seat because that was my first question after seeing those wheels underneath the seat. Well, due to its unique “hybrid-like” functionality, the Doona car seat was tested and certified as both an Infant Car Seat and a Stroller by European standards. It features:
• Fail-safe mechanism in case the car seat was not installed properly. Assure safe use.
• Side-impact protection. Double wall shell structure.
• Baby-safe materials. Tested and certified.
• Anti-rebound protection. Handle enhances protection.
It comes in seven gorgeous colors with a black frame and yellow front wheels. The pink is my favorite!
Just like a stroller, this car seat has a bunch of different accessories including a rain cover, mosquito net, sunshade, small carrying back, large diaper bag that you can hand off the back of the car seat using quick-release Doona™ connectors, snap-on storage, travel bag, seat protector for your car, and wheel covers.
Where to buy
You can get Doona in one of the seven beautiful colors for around $499.
