Doona Car Seat Stroller

This model is no longer available or might have limited distribution.

Car Seat Stroller
To our knowledge, this is the first product of its kind: an infant car seat and stroller all in one piece. It's an infant car seat that is used with a vehicle base in your car, then with just a couple of steps, the stroller frame and legs unfold, and voila! But there's a learning curve, and the instructions are not as clear as they could be.

Ease of use

Ease of use

 /  5
Maneuverability

Maneuverability

Maneuverability is assessed by trained testers, taking into account how well each stroller, with a weight bag "passenger," maneuvers on our course: in S-turns through cones, in narrow sections, on grass, dirt trails with tree roots and other debris, uphill, downhill and up and down curbs.

 /  5
Safety

Safety

Safety is assessed by testing to the requirements of the federal stroller safety standard, 16 CFR Parts 1112 and 1227, which incorporates, by reference, the most current version of the ASTM stroller safety standard, ASTM F833-19. We also put strollers through Stability and Braking and other tests designed by CR.
