As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
When it comes to safety, there is no substitute for quality. The restraint systems that keep your child safe in your car should be as well-made as possible. Aidia creates high-quality systems that will protect your child on bumpy roads or if the worst happens.
We spoke with Judy Ordonez, a member of the Aidia team, to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with Aidia, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Aidia has been developing child restraint products to express comfort and style, with an uncompromising focus on children’s safety. Our mission is to provide parents and families in this world the safest child restraint systems with more variety of stylish designs meeting the 21st century lifestyle.
What is the background of Aidia? When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
Aidia is the North American branch of one of the major child restraint systems manufacturers in the world. Since our first convertible car seat product came off the production line and was made available to European market in 2003, we have developed a full line of child restraint products – from infant car seat to convertible car seats, from harnessed booster to backless booster seats, from injection moulding products to blow moulding products. Our engineers and designers combine engineering insight with creative inspiration to produce beautiful and reliable child restraint systems. We are excited to present our philosophy on innovation and travel style directly to the families of the United States now.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Aidia?
The market compliance is different between the United States and Europe. We bring our products to the US families starting with belt positioning booster seats. Currently, we have the Explorer 2-in-1 Booster Seat, Pathfinder High Back Booster Seat and Scout Backless Booster Seat available in the US. All are new to the US market in 2016. Our Explorer 2-in-1 has been a strong market hit as it provides the greatest structural integrity, excellent performance on FMVSS 213 crash tests, deep headrest for side impact protection, full fabric covering for ultimate vehicle seat protection and beautiful fashion design.
What sets Aidia apart from other car seat companies?
At AIDIA, we believe a product – any product – will always have room for improvement to build it better. Can we make a product more parent and baby-friendly? Can we make a product fit the lifestyle of 21st century parents better? We always ask ourselves these questions.
What can parents expect to see from Aidia at the LA Baby Show?
We will bring two fashion collections of our Explorer 2-in-1 Booster Seat – the Jungle Collection (includes Amazon pattern and Madagascar pattern) and the Astronaut Collection (includes the Endeavor pattern). The Scout Backless Booster Seat fashion collections are the same as the Explorer 2-in-1 Booster Seats. For Pathfinder High Back Booster Seat, we will bring the Astronaut collection (includes Endeavor and the Saturn patterns).
We will bring three models of our car seat protectors: the 5-in-1 Ultimate SmartStore Car Seat Protector which contains our revolutionary SmartStore design and is perfect for infant carriers and convertible car seats, as well as the EZpocket Deluxe Car Seat Protector and the EZpocket Low Back Car Seat Protector. All three of the models feature our unique EZpocket design.
Parents can also expect more products from our travel accessory line (including vehicle kick proof mats, baby vehicle mirrors, and vehicle window sunshades) as well as our stroller accessory line (including stroller hooks and stroller cup holder).
