At a mere 8 pounds, the WayB Pico is a truly portable kids’ car seat. With an aluminum frame and minimal plastic, it meets all federal safety standards for passenger vehicles and commercial airlines.
The breathable mesh seating was inspired by office chairs. All fabric can be popped off for washing.
The headrest slides up and down, just like an adult’s car seat.
Sturdy, but light
An aerospace-grade aluminum frame provides rigidity while minimizing weight and volume.
All movable parts are painted or dyed red for easy spotting. A retractable pin holds the LATCH (lower anchors and tethers for children) mechanism in place when not in use.
