Drool Sponsor Spotlight: Mixing It Up With Ergo and Orbit
In the era of mashups, it’s no surprise that some of our favorite baby brands are combining forces to produce gear that’s twice as useful, twice as stylish, twice as nice! ERGObaby and Orbit Baby have joined forces in a partnership that we’re hoping will result in even cooler products.
You’re probably already familiar with these brands, but here’s a quick refresher:
ERGObaby: The Hawaii-based creators of the hugely popular ERGObaby Carrier have harnessed the power of ergonomics to make baby-wearing supremely comfortable for both you and your child. Wear it on the front, wear it on the back, wear it on the side, wear an infant, wear a toddler – ERGO does it all, with a wide, padded waist band that supports your lower back so you can tote your baby all day long. ERGO carriers are available in a variety of styles and colors – we love the new “Galaxy” pattern (pictured here).
Orbit Baby: When you take an Orbit Baby Travel System G2 for a spin, your baby can face in any direction, giving him more opportunities to participate in the wider world. The Orbit SmartHub is included on both the stroller frame and the car seat base, and lets the seat rotate 360 degrees. This means that you can stroll with your baby facing you or facing away; you can turn your baby away from bright sunlight; you can insert the car seat facing you and then rotate it into position; and more! The car seat attaches to the compact stroller frame, making it the most user-friendly travel system we’ve ever seen. Next up, Orbit is dipping a toe into the double stroller market later this year: the Orbit Double Helix is on its way this fall.
Both companies are born innovators, and both have been integrating eco-friendliness into their products, with ERGO’s Organic Baby Carrier and Orbit’s “Orbitgreen”-certified fabrics. So it’s an all-natural match.
Now that ERGObaby has purchased Orbit Baby, what comes next? Orbit representatives say that the acquisition will make their top-notch customer service even better. We look forward to finding out what other innovations will spring from this mashup. And of course, we’ll keep you informed.
In the meantime, you can meet representatives from both companies at the upcoming Drool Baby Expo, on May 15. Come see the coolest new strollers, the comfiest new carriers, and more – go to www.droolbabyexpo.com to learn more and get your tickets.
