Orbit Baby Product Design

Orbit Baby continues to lead the baby gear industry by incorporating innovative parent-friendly and baby-friendly features.

One-Handed Stroller Fold

Designed with parents in mind, Orbit's Stroller has a true one-handed fold. Simply by twisting and lifting with one hand on the Stroller, the Stroller frame collapses compactly in all three dimensions to fit in even the smallest car trunks. What's more, instead of you ending up bent to the ground, this backsaving motion leaves you standing with Stroller in hand, ready to go.

Modularity

With our modular approach to baby gear, you can accumulate a lot less gear for family travel. Our system is sensibly designed to grow as your baby grows: just swap out your Orbit seat and keep using the rest of your durable system. From a newborn infant to a toddler, from a walk in the park to a trek through the airport, you can adapt your Orbit travel system to accommodate life’s roller-coaster.

Full Coverage Paparazzi Shield™

We know that parents want to protect their little ones from harsh sun, wind, drizzle and germs, especially during naps. With Orbit Baby, there's no need to throw a blanket over your baby - simply pull down the Paparazzi Shield sunshade extension for nearly 100% UVA and UVB blockage and lightweight, breathable protection for your baby.

Ergonomic Handling for Parents

Orbit Baby seats are designed so that parents can easily carry, rotate, and undock them without moving the position of their hands. The ergonomically-located side levers make it easy to dock & rotate in one back-saving motion. And unlike other infant car seats that can only be carried lengthwise, our Infant Car Seat's side handles allow parents to comfortably carry it with their elbows tucked in, even through the narrow entries of car doors and airplane aisles.

Cargo Pod™ removable storage bag

With the Cargo Pod storage bag, you have no need to shuffle through your child's belongings in a low stroller basket. Designed to fit a deceptively large volume of baby essentials, our patent-pending Cargo Pod easily pulls out of the Stroller frame and has a shoulder strap for the perfect on-the-go travel accessory.

Soft Carrier Handle

The patent-pending soft carrier handles on our Bassinets and Infant Car Seats allow you to carry your infant comfortably close to your body. Other infant carriers have hard plastic handles that position it far from your center of gravity, resulting in an awkward carrying position. Our soft handles are also ergonomically flexible, and fold away easily without separating or detaching.

Side-impact car seat protection

Our car seats provide your child with some of the most well-designed and largest side-protection areas available. Orbit Baby infant and toddler car seats use continuous side-protection impact foam linings made of high-grade EPP foam. The shells of both car seats protect your child by extending noticeably higher on the sides than other car seats on the market.

Parent-Friendly Upholstery

Mess is a reality when dealing with kids, and parents should not have to compromise the safety of their car seat every time they clean. Orbit Baby's patent-pending car seat upholsteries are not only designed to keep your safety harness intact when you remove it for machine washing, but the installation clamps and belt adjusters are also accessible through easy-access upholstery flaps.

SmartHub™ Rotational Interface

The SmartHub™ docking ring is used on Orbit Baby's car seat bases, strollers, and rockers. The SmartHub, along with the safety latches on the bottoms of Orbit Baby seats, allows parents to dock, lock and rotate each seat. This revolutionary back-saving system allows 360 degree flexibility for your child on the stroller, as well as ergonomic docking onto the car seat base at an easy angle into the car. As a car seat interface, the SmartHub is the only docking system to provide 360 degrees of security in the car, providing unparalleled side-impact protection for your child.

60-second secure installation

Government studies have shown that that 4 out of 5 car seats are installed or used incorrectly. That’s why we designed our Base to be easy and intuitive to install securely. The patent-pending StrongArm™ inside of our Base is a “smart force” amplification mechanism. When you apply a normal hand-tightening force to the Base’s knob, the StrongArm™ mechanism outputs a force 12 times greater. This allows grandma to install a car seat just as securely as a fireman, simply by turning a knob.
