While it acts like the typical car seat, the Doona offers more protection as it comes with what has been termed Anti-Rebound protection. The unique structure of it means allows for the positioning of the handle to go against the back of any seat in the vehicle, with the handle taking any impact and preventing the seat from rotating around to face the back of the car seat.

It has more than one fail safe mechanism so as to make it impossible for the Doona to fold up unintentionally. It also cannot extend suddenly and there is prevention for the sudden extension of the handle when carrying it. When on-the-go, there is prevention of rotation of the extended handle while you are on the move.

The double wall structure is unique and it allows the wheels to fold into the body of the Doona and with it comes an additional safety benefit. The two layers are very durable and can absorb impact; there are also additional layers of EPS foam to offer even more side impact protection.

 The Doona is going to be launched into the European market soon in a range of colours, with a price tag of around £299.
