The Captain's Seat

And the cushions are removable for easy care and the product is washable.

Easy View by Sunshine Kids

Easy View

With most modern cars having passenger side airbags it is not always possible to place rear facing baby seats on the front passenger seat. The Easy-View is the first back seat mirror that rotates 360 degrees and pivots on a ball and socket to provide the perfect angle for viewing an infant in the rear of the car.

Easy-View attaches to the centre of the rear headrest, which means that it maintains unobstructed rear visibility for the driver. The convex mirror surface offers the largest reflection of any back seat mirror. And the mirror has a strong lightweight construction with a child safe plastic mirror.

Friendly Forest by Sunshine Kids

Designed to keep babies and toddlers amused while in the car Friendly Forest is a brightly colored travel activity panel that can be used with either forward or rearward facing safety seats. Featuring a soft-flex mirror and two bouncing characters, it will attract attention, help stimulate focus and encourage the development of visual skills, as well as offering amusement on any car journey. Covered in a soft fabric, the foam panel is attached in seconds using the fitted hook and loop fasteners.


ToddlerCoddler is a padded travel support to prevent sleeping toddlers in forward facing car seats or boosters from slumping forward or to the side by providing head, neck, and lateral support. Recent studies have shown that, just like adults, young children can be adversely affected by the "slump" of sleeping in the car in many standard car seats. ToddlerCoddler counteracts this in a comfortable and safe way. Because of its versatile adjustable harness, it can go anywhere. It is designed to work in every model of car seat and booster. All that is required is a headrest or seat back. It can also be used for special-needs children, including those with low muscle tone and cerebral palsy. It is also recommended by chiropractors for healthy spine alignment.

Auto Mobiles

Auto Mobiles are mom-invented portable baby mobiles easily attach to the car's headliner and do not obstruct the driver's view. Gone are the days of fishing for toys in the backseat; Auto Mobiles keep a child entertained and feeling at home on the road. Auto Mobiles come in three fun designs: Garden Friends, Galactic Friends, and Barnyard Buddies, each with expressive and vibrant colors. Auto Mobiles peel off easily without damaging the ceiling fabric.

Here’s hoping all your travels find you and your little ones arriving safe and sound.
