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.
Strollers carry such precious cargo – our little ones! That’s why it is imperative to have high standards of safety and quality. Jané USA does much more than take your wee ones from Point A to Point B. Jané USA is dedicated to elevating the industry’s safety standards.
We caught up with the Jané USA team to learn more about what’s new with them and what parents can expect from them at the New York Baby Show!
For someone unfamiliar with the culture of Jané USA how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
There are few things in this world that have the ability and capacity to move us, both physically and emotionally, the way a child does. A simple look can say a million words. A smile can completely change the outlook of your day. A first step can be etched into your memory bank, forever marking its importance. A cry can send you running, heart racing to find out what’s wrong. That’s what inspires us as a company, to do more than create things that take you from point A to point B: we innovate to change the way people think about our products and focus on raising safety standards to challenge the ones set by our industry. We do this in order to ensure we’re providing not only safe products but a greater sense of security to each parent. We understand that, like parenting, this is an ongoing process that requires learning, humility, and more effort than you thought possible. Our goal is to provide something more significant, something safer, and something innovative. For more than 80 years, we’ve witnessed those smiles, tended to those tears and watched those footsteps with baited breath. It’s what makes us unmistakably who we are. It’s what makes us Jané.
What’s the background of the company? When did it start? How has it evolved over time?
Jane was born in 1928 in Barcelona, Spain. As a fourth generation, family-owned company, children’s safety has always been paramount in our research and design. This has been a staple for our company since day one. In addition, we adopted a design philosophy to “innovate before we are copied.” Our innovation has evolved by acting, not reacting to the marketplace.
What are the most popular and newest products from Jané USA?
We have a new product lineup for 2016 which we are very excited about! All of our products use anodized aluminum, which make them resistant to corrosion and rust-free, as well as polyurethane tires. This material is much more durable and lasts longer through rougher terrain than 99 percent of our competitors.
Muum – this will be our opening price point stroller for 2016. The Muum is the perfect balance featuring a full canopy, all-terrain long-lasting tires, a large basket for storage. It also fully reclines to accommodate a newborn, fits our new Ultra Lightweight infant seat, the Koos, and it comes with the link fix adapter to accommodate several infant seats, reversible seat, along with a rain cover and cup holder!
Crosswalk – this will be our mid-range, all-terrain, and full featured stroller. The crosswalk features a built-in half-bassinet to accommodate a newborn, double suspension to absorb the bumps and bruises of the road, a full canopy, all-terrain heavy tread tires. The Crosswalk fits our new ultra-lightweight Koos infant seat, the link fix adapter to accommodate several infant seats, reversible seat, with a shopping bag (adds 15 lbs. of accessible storage), rain cover, and cup holder.
Rider – this is our statement piece. We call it our luxurious revolution. It provides the luxury of an ultra-premium product with ample features and an affordable price. The rider features a bassinet included with every purchase to accommodate a newborn. It is 30 percent smaller folded than when it’s fully upright, it has a complex suspension system to absorb the bumps and bruises of the road, and fits our new ultra-lightweight Koos infant seat. It includes the link fix adapter to accommodate several infant seats, reversible seat, with a shopping bag (adds 15 lbs. of accessible storage), rain cover, and cup holder.
Koos Infant Seat – this is a brand new product from Jané USA. The Koos is our 7 lbs. ultra-lightweight infant seat featuring side impact protection, EPP safety foam lining the entire seat, full canopy, infant insert and it can fit a child from 4-30 lb. The base features a load leg, one adjust pull installation, stabilizer bar and anti-rebound. The Koos has been NCAP tested, received great remarks from the EuroCrash test and is tested to 2.5 times the US standard.
What sets Jané USA apart from other stroller companies?
I believe that our attention to high quality and innovation is what sets us apart. In addition, we don’t just stop with the product. Our customer service is also what sets us apart. We strive to make sure we create an attention to detail in everything we do and do it with excellence.
What can parents expect to see from Jané USA at the LA Baby Show?
The parents can see our lovely faces. Other than that, they will be able to see all of our new 2016 products mentioned above!
