WAYB is a new company founded by outdoor gear manufacturing experts and the former CEO of Patagonia. WAYB believes that parents should not have to choose between beautiful design and great performance and that products should be healthier for kids and the planet. The company’s first product is the Pico Car Seat, an ultralight forward-facing five-point-harness car seat for kids ages 2 to 5 made of aerospace-grade aluminum and breathable mesh. At 8 pounds, the compact frame and folding seat fit in a small carry bag. It was designed to exceed FAA and NHTSA standards. Most car seats are made from plastic and foam, which keep costs down but break apart easily. Aluminum is highly recyclable and abundant and gives Pico its light weight and strength. WAYB didn’t forget the little ones. Lightweight, breathable, ergonomic mesh provide comfortable and secure support, keeping your child safe.

Lack of sleep for new parents is an everyday norm and a serious issue that can quickly become a health problem for both parents and the baby. SNOO is a robotic bassinet that reacts to a baby’s cries and movements to replicate the 5 S’s, a method developed by world-famous pediatrician Dr. Harvey Kar, creating the world’s safest bed. Each element of SNOO was considered for its safety, functional efficiency, material quality and comfort. For the main enclosure, the curved structural elements hold a double layer of mesh. Three microphones detect the baby’s cry and distinguishing it from outside noises. Below the mattress are the sensors, speakers and a robotic engine that power SNOO’s intelligent response. The outer layer of mesh facilitates the flow of fresh air and makes the baby visible inside the bassinet, a feature that enhances the parents’ feeling of connection to and protection of the baby.
