Doona From Car Seat to Stroller in Seconds
Doona™ was designed to provide parents a safe and practical mobility solution for their baby, both in and outside of the car.
Doona™ is the world's first infant car seat with a complete and fully integrated mobility solution.
Doona successfully passed all legally required compliance tests as well as additional tests above and beyond the requirements.
Doona complies with the highest EU, US and some other local standards*. As such, Simple Parenting conducted more than one hundred crash tests to ensure the baby’s safety and protection in a wide range of crash scenarios. On top of the compliance testing, Simple Parenting conducted numerous tests, in extreme conditions, to assure that Doona does not just meet the standards, but it exceeds them. The additional tests included collision at very high speeds, collision at freeze conditions, collision using a 3 year old dummy, and/or additional weights, etc.
Doona successfully passed all legally required compliance tests, as well as the beyond-compliance tests. In frontal collision tests (the most frequent type of car accident), Doona scored a high 5-star rating.
In addition to tests conducted in the leading labs in the US, Europe, and Asia, Simple Parenting established a fully automated, high-tech, in-house testing facility. In this facility, Simple Parenting continuously conducts more than 20 different tests, which are not part of the standard tests, to ensure durability over time, prevent consumer misuse, etc.
*There are slight differences between the products to match the local standards.
The Doona infant car seat has now been tested and approved for use with Ford Motor Company inflatable seat belts. All Doona infant car seats, with any date of manufacture, can be used with Ford and Lincoln inflatable seat belts. Specific instructions related to use with an inflatable seat belt are provided in a revised instruction manual that can be found by going to the support tab on the simple parenting web site and selecting user guides or going to: https://simpleparenting.co/user-guides/
EU & US Certification
Doona™ has been tested to meet the stringent European and US standards for Car-Seats, Strollers, Reclined Cradles (EU) and Hand-held Carriers (US)*.
To the best of our knowledge, it is the only product which simultaneously meets the quality and safety requirements of all the following standards: ECE R44, EN1888, EN12790, FMVSS213, ASTM F833, ASTMF2050.
Standard & Certification
Stiftung Warentest, ADAC, OAMTC
On October, 2015, Doona + was reviewed by the independent German consumer testing organization Stifting Warentest, ADAC, and achieved excellent results. The Doona + was awarded a “2,4”, “Good” rating in the test, which was the highest score category awarded of the 45 tested car seats.
ADAC and their affiliates at the ICRT stated in their Car-Seat reviews that the Doona+ stands out in the following:
Very good results in frontal crash tests
Very low pollutant level
Very easy and secure seat installation
Low risk of incorrect operation
Simple harnessing of a child in the Doona
Good leg circulation
Good seating position for the child
Good space for the child
High quality workmanship
On November 2015, OAMTC ( Austrian Motoring Organisation) assessed Doona+ with the Isofix Base, in which it received a “Good” in the category of Auto touring.
Doona’s unique double wall structure, which enables the folding of its wheels into the Doona™ body, deliver an additional significant safety benefit. The two layers of durable, impact-absorbing plastic, along with additional layers of EPS, foam and textiles provide enhanced side- impact protection which better protects the baby in case of an accident.
All materials used by Simple Parenting are carefully tested and approved under the most strict European standards and the REACH regulation, including SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern). Not only are the materials used free of any hazardous chemicals, they are also tested for their durability and quality to assure the safe and continuous use of the products.
Baby Safe Material
NHTSA, Consumer Reports
NHTS (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration – part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, as described on their website www.nhtsa.gov, is responsible for reducing deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes.
On October 2016 NHTSA evaluated and ranked Doona with 5 stars in their overall Ease of Use Rating.

Air travel with children is a common and growing practice these days, and experts agree that young children, restrained to their seat with a lap belt only or held in their parents’ arms, are the most unsafe passengers on the plane. In case of turbulence, flight through air pockets or emergency landings it is unlikely that a parent will be able to safely and effectively restrain the child. Flight safety experts encourage parents to take the highest safety measures and use an approved car seat to restrain the child throughout the flight.
DoonaTM is the ideal solution for air travel and it has been certified by the US and European authorities for air travel.
Simple Parenting recommends contacting the airline in advance to ensure car seats are permitted on your flight and confirm the appropriate seat assignment.

EU & US Aircraft Approval
Unlike typical car seats, Doona’s unique structure enables positioning the handle against the back of the seat of the car, thus providing the baby with exceptional Anti-Rebound protection. In case of a collision, the Anti-Rebound handle will absorb the impact and prevent the Doona™ from rotating quickly towards the back of the seat, thus dramatically reducing rebound injuries.
Anti Rebound Protection
Two of the most common injury causes relating to Car Seats and Strollers are misuse and improper installation. With this in mind, the Doona™ Design and Engineering teams developed multiple fail-safe mechanisms to prevent misuse and assure safe operations. Among others, these mechanisms prevent the following:
• Unintentional folding of the Doona
• Sudden extension of the Doona handle while in carry mode
• Rotation of the extended handle while Doona is in “on-the-go” mode”
