SimpleParentng produces truly innovative baby products, most notably the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller. SimpleParenting was founded by industrial designer and Shenkar graduate Yoav Mazar and his wife, Vera, in Israel. The company’s first product was the Doona.
The inspiration for the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller (and the company that was born with its creation) came from Yoav's experience as a father. He found that traditional car seats were heavy, bulky, and inconvenient to use, especially when trying to move his daughter from the car to the stroller. He and his wife simply didn’t want to always have to take along a car seat and a stroller every time they left the house. Thus. Yoav saw an opportunity to create a product that would make life easier for parents, and the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller was born. “Doona” is short for his daughter’s name, Danielle.
Yoav spent several years developing and refining the product, working with engineers, designers, and safety experts to ensure that the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller was safe, comfortable, and easy to use. The product was granted numerous patents and received awards for its innovative design.
In the mid 2010s, the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller was launched in Israel and quickly gained popularity. Next, the product was introduced in Europe and the United States, where it received rave reviews from parents and baby experts alike. The Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller was particularly well-received by urban parents who appreciated its compact size and ability to quickly and easily transform from a car seat to a stroller.
The success of the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller led to the creation of additional products, including the Doona Liki Trike, a compact and lightweight tricycle for toddlers, and the Doona Essentials Collection, a line of accessories for the Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller.
Today, Doona products are sold in more than 40 countries worldwide, and the company has won numerous awards for its innovative and practical designs. The Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller remains the company's flagship product, and has become a must-have for new parents looking for a safe, convenient, and easy-to-use car seat and stroller in one.
